My latest venture in bringing home the “bacon” is with Receipt Hog, a fun and rewarding app that lets you earn real cash with your receipts – anywhere you shop on anything you buy.
“Sow”, how does it work?
Receipt Hog provides 2 main rewards for uploading receipts: spins and coins
.• Receipts each gets you one spin on “Hog Slots” and one entry to a sweepstakes that pays out in coins (ranging from 20 to 5,000). For spins, most specialty chains partake like clothing, office, electronics, books, home improvement, furniture, and arts/crafts.
• Receipt totals get you coins to put towards cash or gift card rewards which get paid out within just 7 days. For coins, all types of stores participate such as supermarkets, c-stops, mass merchants, drug chains, liquor stores, gas stations, and restaurants!
My life would be a “boar” without Receipt Hog.
Like many other things, shopping has become gamified. There is some fine print on how this “game” really works ranging from receipt limits, timeframe eligibility, etc. However, there are also some really neat features that make it worth it like monthly challenges to earn even more.
What type of contribution will this make to your “piggy bank”?
For me, I’m a moderate user of the app – uploading about 3 to 5 receipts/week (in less than 1 minute of my time) ranging from a quick fill-in trip to longer stock-up receipts that can be easily snapped in sections. Based on 3 months of activity, my annual forecast is 9000 coins or approximately $60 in gift cards or cash.
“Pork”-chop to it and download Receipt Hog (via my referral link so that I earn a few bonus spins)!
Just like I did, you can effortlessly make this part of your shopping routine. If money doesn’t motivate you, there is another for good reason: your receipts (which are anonymous) will influence brands’ and retailers’ decisions on assortment, pricing, etc. That’s good reason to “squeal” with delight!
