I first started using Receipt Hog a few months back when I realized I could use it to save money at Aldi . I had read about it over and over and don’t know why it took me so long to start an account. Receipt Hog has got to be the simplest point earning app I have used yet.
How To Use Receipt Hog
(Links in this post are affiliate links. I will be compensated when you make a purchase by clicking those links. See my disclosure page for more information)
1. Sign up for an account here
2. Download the app and sign in
3. Check out the list of stores that Receipt Hog works with
If you go to the setting section of the Receipt Hog app you will see that it works at retailers that sell groceries, health items, and beauty products including Walmart, Meijer, Kroger, and many more.
Receipt Hog doesn’t work with just stores that sell groceries though–they also accepts receipts from non-grocery stores like The Home Depot, KOHL’S, JCPenney’s, and more.
4. The next time you go shopping upload a receipt when you are done
Uploading a receipt is easy. You simply press the “camera” tab and line up the receipt along the guide, taking several pictures if need be to get the whole receipt from top to bottom and then press submit. You will receive payment normally within a few hours, though the time can vary.
5. Enjoy watching the coins add up
Grocery store receipts primarily pay in points (called coins).
Other receipts pay in spins that you can use in the slots area.
5. Cash out your coins
If you click on the “Rewards” symbol at the bottom of the app you can slide over to “Redeem Prizes” (in green at top of prize area). Pick whether you want Amazon gift cards or a Paypal deposit as payment (both are equal in coin value).
Cash out for the prizes begins at 1000 coins for $5 and goes up to $30 for 4500 coins making the higher cash out a better value.
Once you pick your choice of payment it will take up to 7 days to receive it. PayPal will be directly deposited to your account whereas with Amazon you will receive a code to redeem.
6. Tell your friends and you both win
When you share your referral code, mine is YECT1667, and they enter it in the process of signing up, you get 10 spins and they start their account with 5 spins.
Don’t wait like I did–sign up for Receipt Hog today and start earning coins towards your first payout.
