Receipt Hog

Receipt Hog is an app that is hungry for your receipts!!

It’s easy! You don’t have to scan each of your items or anything.     Simply snap a photo of your receipt!

Then you can earn coins or spins based on the total amount on the receipt and the kind of store it is.

EARN COINS by taking photos of your receipts from any store that sells groceries, health and beauty items, and more.  Number of coins earned depends on the total of your purchases.

You can submit up to 20 receipts that earn coins in any 7 day rolling period.

You can also EARN SPINS. You earn 1 spin on the Hog Slot Machine for submitting receipts from retailers like clothing stores, home improvement stores, electronics stores, sporting goods stores, and more.   When you play on the Hog Slots,  you can win bonus coins and other prizes. You could even have your last shopping trip paid for!img_20160908_114026

A lot of people like this app because you don’t have to worry about scanning items  or buying from particular stores.

You also earn 1 sweepstakes entry for every receipt you submit.

HOW DO I GET MY CASH/GIFT CARD? You can request to have your coins turned into cash that will be deposited into your PayPal account or you can choose an Amazon gift card.

  • Once you are done, you can choose “list”.

img_20160908_111052That will be a list of only the products you clicked that you wanted to buy. This is a great shopping list to use when you are at the store because you can check off the items as you put them in your grocery cart! Love that!!

  • Scan the items you purchased to be sure they are the ones in the offer. After the items are verified, take a picture of your receipt.

One Bonus to SavingStar is sometimes they have items that have a savings of 100%!  Who doesn’t like a FREE item now and then? 🙂

HOW LONG UNTIL I GET MY MONEY? Most money will be posted to your SavingStar account within 1-10 days. It’s usually 2-3 days for me. However, it does say on the website that some stores can take up to 22 days.

HOW DO I GET MY CASH/GIFT CARD ?  When you have accumulated $5 or more in your SavingStar account you can request to have your money deposited to your PayPal account, your bank, or you can choose a gift card.

Ibotta- Earn Cash Back

Ibotta is a wonderful app that gives you money back for your everyday shopping.

Join Ibotta  now using this link and you could also earn an extra $10!

Although I mainly use it for grocery and health and beauty items, there are actually more categories.  They are:

  1.  Grocery
  2. Pharmacy
  3. Clothing
  4. Beer, Wine, and Spirits
  5. Beauty and Wellness
  6. Specialty
  7. Restaurants and Bars
  8. Convenience
  9. Mobile Apps

So here’s what you do…

  1. Pick your category.        Let’s say I am going to go grocery shopping. I would click on “grocery.” Then it lists the stores nearby (or you can select all stores).

img_20160908_1002012.  Choose the store.          I clicked on Walmart. Now it tells me which rebates are hot or which ones are new. It also lists them by categories, such as breakfast,  breads, etc.. Sometimes you only get the rebate if you buy a particular brand, other times it doesn’t matter, as you can see from the photo.img_20160908_100138

3. “Unlock” the offers you want.

4.  “Verify puchases.”       All of your unlocked items will be listed. Check off and scan the barcode of the items you actually purchased on that shopping trip.

5. Receipt.     Depending on which store you shopped at, you will either take a picture of the receipt, scan the barcode,  or scan the QR code on the receipt.
