Receipt Hog: An Easy Way to Earn Cash with Your Smartphone!

Many moms use their smartphones to play games and surf the web. How about making some cash on that smartphone, too? Check out Receipt Hog!

Receipt Hog, a mobile rewards app, is redesigned and updated and available for both iOS and Android devices.

What Is Receipt Hog?

Receipt Hog is a mobile app that rewards users just for snapping pictures of grocery receipts. Every receipt earns a reward, regardless of store or brand. Users earn coins which can be redeemed for cash (through Paypal) or an Amazon gift card. With the new version, Receipt Hog users can also earn coins or instant shopping trips by submitting receipts more regularly.

What Happens with My Data?

But why in the world would anyone pay for your grocery store receipts? Well, it’s actually pretty simple! Receipt Hog is a market research company that works with consumer brands. They take the information from your grocery receipts, summarize it, make it anonymous, and then bundle it in market reports for those consumer brands. Your personal information is always kept anonymous and is never sold to third parties.

How Does It Work?

This app is simple! Snap a picture of a qualifying grocery store receipt and earn coins. The amount of coins a user earns per receipt depends on the total of the receipt. For example: a receipt with a final total of $100 earns more coins than one with a final total of $10. Users who submit receipts each week also earn greater rewards. Some receipts may even qualify users for a survey, which earns additional coins. Receipt Hog users who submit receipts more often can also win instant shopping trips with the new, Hog Slots feature.

How Much Can I Earn?

The best thing about Receipt Hog is that you can chose to get paid in cash. Currently, it takes at least 1,000 coins to cash out ($5 Paypal and Amazon), but if you decide to save your coins and let them accrue, you’ll get an even better value! 1,800 coins can be redeemed for $10, 3,200 coins can be redeemed for $20, and 4,500 coins can be redeemed for a $30 cash-out.

All grocery stores qualify?

Yes! Receipt Hog accepts receipts from grocers, convenience stores, club stores, mom and pop stores—even pet stores!

    You take pictures in different segments. Most of my receipts are long and I have to do that.

    I’ve downloaded the app but every time I try to take a picture of the receipt the app closes out. Is anybody else having this problem?

    Everyone should download Viggle as well. I’ve used the app for quite a while. I’ve received $40 worth of Sephora gift cards. It allows you to earn 1 point per minute of tv that you tune into. The app is simple and the rewards are great! Hope you all enjoy.

    Can you submit old receipts, say a week or a month old?

  5. LadybugAZ says:

    This is a fairly good app. I have used it for quite a while now. They recently changed the terms and you do not get as many points as you used to, but it is cool to earn (points) money, just for posting your receipts.

      can it be used as a way to keep track of your spendings as well? or does it only submit to them?
