Receipt Hog

Receipt Hog is a fun app to earn rewards on your receipts!  You earn points (called coins) on your purchases regardless of what store you shopped at.  Receipt Hog is a very popular app and as of right now has a waitlist, so it’s best to download the app as soon as possible!

After you download the app, the home page will look like this:

In the middle of the page, you will see the “Challenges” for the month.  You get bonus slot spins for snapping pictures of receipts each week.  I’ll explain what the slot spins are a little later on.  Under the challenge, you’ll see the Sweepstakes.  Each month there is a sweepstakes for extra coins, and each receipt you scan gives you an entry into the sweepstakes.  When I am ready to scan a receipt, I push the blue camera button on the bottom.

The camera will turn on, ready to take a picture.  I click the blue circle to take a picture.  If the receipt will not fit in one picture, I can take multiple pictures.  When I am done taking pictures, I click the “Done” button in the bottom right corner.

After I click done, the picture I took will pop up.  I can review it and if I didn’t capture everything in the picture or the picture turned out blurry, I can click the “retake” button.  If I’m happy with the picture, I click the “Looks Good” button.

After submitting each receipt, they will ask who was part of the shopping trip and for you to rate your experience.  When you click on your answers, your receipt is officially uploaded and you will receive your points.  Point values are dependent on how much was spent on the receipt.  A receipt under $10 will earn 5 coins, $10-$20 will 10 coins, $50-$100 will earn 15 coins, and more than $100 will earn 20 coins.  Grocery stores and drug stores will earn you coins, other stores like home improvement or gas stations will earn you slot spins instead.

To play your slot spins, click on the “spins” button on the lower right of the screen.  Slot spins can earn you anywhere from 2 coins to 2000 coins, or even a chance to win $100.  Wins are not guaranteed on each spin, but it’s a fun way to have a chance to earn more coins!

When you are ready to redeem a reward, click on the “rewards” button in the lower right corner.

Here you can connect your e-mail for extra coins, and you can connect your Amazon account for coins as well!  To look at the rewards available, click on the green “Redeem Prizes” button at the top.

The rewards that Receipt Hog has available include an Amazon gift card, a Paypal deposit, or different magazine subscriptions.

Both Amazon and Paypal have the same payout levels.  For example, you can get $5 for 1000 coins through Amazon or Paypal.  It takes some time to earn enough coins for a payout, but when you already have the receipts, why not earn a little extra money from them?  Download Receipt Hog today!
