Receipt Hog App for iPhone - Pays you cash for receipts

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Pays you for scanning your grocery and other store receipts

Cons:could take some time to accumulate enough points to cash in.

The Bottom Line: Receipt Hog is a free App that pays you real money for your Grocery and Store Receipts.


I have had Receipt Hog on my iPhone for awhile and kept forgetting to use it. This is an App that pays you in "coins" for uploading your receipts to the App. When you get enough coins you can cash them in for real money via Paypal. Receipts are uploaded anonymously and used for market research.

This app probably pays off the most for people who make many small shopping trips a week. Points or coins are paid per receipt and not per dollar value of the receipt.

Downloading the App

Receipt Hog is a totally free App available for Apple devices. I have had no issues downloading or using the App. I have not experienced any crashes or errors.

Requirements: Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5

Size: 10.6 MB

Seller: ScoutIt, Inc.

What Kind of Receipts can you upload?

You can upload receipts from Grocery Stores, Supercenters, Club stores, Dollar stores, Drugstores, Convenience stores, or Pet Supply stores. You can not use it for clothing, specialty stores, department stores or restaurants.

If you are not sure, try uploading it and see if it qualifies.


How do you upload the receipts?

Receipts are uploaded by using your iPhone camera. If you have a long receipt you can upload it in parts. Start at the top and take a photo using the software in the App. It will then give you a choice to take another photo of a lower part of the receipt or send the receipt in as is. If you have to add more, it shows you a little of the bottom of what you have already photographed so that you know where to start. The app does a nice job of making this process easy.

Some receipts will be processed immediately but others might take a day to process and give you your points. Hang on to your receipts so if there are issues you can repeat the process.

How many points will I get per receipt?

In the beginning you will start out getting only 10 coins per receipt. As you upload more receipts you the coins increase to 15, 20, and then 25 per receipt. Each receipt pays the same amount regardless of how much you spend.

How much will I get paid

You can cash out for as few as 250 coins if you want to make a donation to a charity. If you would like to be paid cash through Paypal. These are the payout amounts:
1000 coins - $5.00
1800 coins - $10.00 (10% better value)
3200 coins - $20.00 (20% better value)
4500 coins - $30.00 (25% better value)

How will I be paid

If you are choosing a cash prize, prizes are paid through Paypal.

Settings

While on the main screen there is a small i on the top left. If you press that you can edit your password or email address. You can also read some info about the app or submit a question.

Final thoughts and Rating

Receipt Hog pays you for something that would normally just get saved in a drawer or end up in your shredder. It does take a few extra steps but it's free money so I have a hard time complaining about anything to do with this app. The app is so easy a child could do it. I will give the App 4 stars.

Thanks for reading my review
