Fetch Rewards is an app that pays you for uploading pictures of your paper receipts. But it’s different from other rebate apps (like Ibotta) in a few ways. . .

First, no action is required until you scan your receipt. There are no surveys to take or videos to watch. Even better? You don’t have to indicate that you’re going to make the purchase, and you don’t have to scan the barcodes of the items you purchased.

The other important difference is that Fetch doesn’t pay its users with cash — instead you redeem your earned points for gift cards.

First things first… download the Fetch app.

TIP: Enter promo code KRAZY when you download the Fetch Rewards app to earn 2,000 bonus points! That’s a free $2.00 bonus! Just remember to enter the promo code before you add your first receipt.

Once you’ve downloaded the app, sign up with your email address or through Facebook. You’ll also be prompted to select the state you live in and enter your phone number. Once you’re in, you’ll see two ways to earn points — “Brands” and “Special Offers.” Let’s break it down:

 

Earn points when you buy specific brands.

You’ll earn points when you make a purchase on a qualifying brand (any product) and scan your receipt with the Fetch app. The number of points you earn is tied to how much the product costs. For every $0.10 spent on a participating item, you’re going to earn one point.

Click on the SAVE tab and then click BRANDS from the top navigation. From there, you’ll see hundreds of participating brands. To earn points, just buy any products from the brands listed, and you’ll earn 10 points for every dollar you spend.

For example, if Axe is listed and you buy Axe Deodorant for $3.00, you’ll receive 30 points. If you buy $100 in Axe, that’s 1,000 points.

 

Earn points when you buy specific products.

These offers are called “Special Offers” and will earn you points for buying specific items and quantities. Click on the SAVE tab and then click on SPECIAL OFFERS from the top navigation. From there, you’ll see about 20 different offers. For example, right now there’s an offer for 400 points when you buy Miracle Whip Dressing (15 oz. or larger).


Make a purchase and scan your receipt.

Once you’ve made your purchases, grab your receipt and open the Fetch app. Tap “Scan” to take a picture of your receipt and tap “submit.” It’s seriously that easy.

It will only take a few minutes for Fetch to review your receipt and then you’ll see the points in your account. After your receipt is reviewed by the Fetch team, you’ll be asked to double-check your receipt to ensure they didn’t miss any qualifying items. If you notice something was missed, use the “add item” option to correct the mistake. Corrections can take up to 48 hours to be reviewed. Fetch will store your receipts for future reference.

 

 

Redeem your points for gift cards.

A thousand points equals $1.00 in rewards. Once you’ve earned 3,000 points, you can redeem them for gift cards. Favorites include Target and Amazon.
