Money From Receipts??
Ok so most of us when doing any kind of shopping are looking for the best price and to save a few pennies. In fact, it is one of my favorite things to do. I have an article about the best ways to save money here. One of the ways I have been trying lately is to scan your receipts with apps such as Receipt hog or Shoppix.
Yes, it is exactly what it says in the heading, and it is as easy as it sounds. You can earn money from just taking a simple screenshot of virtually any kind of shopping receipt.
It could be a simple trip to your local supermarket whereby you spend £7 or it could be a meal out at a restaurant where you spend £80. The bigger the receipt the more points you can earn and when you hit a threshold you can trade those points for Amazon vouchers or money straight into your PayPal account.
I love free vouchers and rewards so I jumped straight into this and had no troubles whatsoever.
How Do I Do This?
This really couldn’t be any easier/ You just need to download an app to your mobile device. The main shopping apps are available on both Android and the apple app store.
The two apps I use the most are Shoppix and Receipt Hog. This means this is kind of a Receipt hog review however Shoppix is virtually the same. There are other good ones out there, I am currently on the waiting list for
Once the app has downloaded simply open it up and sign up, Usually, all they need is your name and email address as well as your birthdate. That’s it.
After you have signed up it really is a matter of just remembering to take a picture using the in-app photo mode of your receipt. It needs to be a nice clear picture and have all the details of the receipt in the shot.
Then hit send when you have the perfect shot and it will be verified. This can take a day but once verified you will see it under your receipts tab.
I have found out of the 2 apps I currently use that Receipt Hog is the quickest when it comes to being verified.
What Kinds Of Receipts
Well just about any kind. B
- Supermarkets, Asda, Tesco, Morrisons, Waitrose,

With receipt hog you must scan your receipts within 14 days otherwise they are invalid. If you scan your receipt on the same day you received it then you will earn either bonus points, or a prize draw entry depending on which app you are using.
As soon as I get home from Asda which happens to be the store of choice for me as its closest to my house, I put the shopping away then scan the receipt and make sure the scan is sent through. Usually, this is all confirmed within a few minutes.
Some stores mentioned above won’t get you points but will get you entered into various sweepstakes. These sweepstakes can earn you fantastic prizes and goodies.
The best thing to do is whenever you get a receipt just scan it into every app you have. Over the course of a
If you are part of a large family all living under the same roof then this amount could be considerably more. I would recommend never missing a receipt as any that are over £100 get you a fair few points.
