Receipt hog

What is Receipt Hog?

Receipt Hog is a market research company that works with leading consumer goods brands and retailers. Using the Receipt Hog app, they collect data about consumers` shopping habits. Market research reports based on anonymous information from your receipts and questions you answer in optional surveys. Receipt Hog will not pass your personal information to 3rd party.

Receipt Hog is available for iPhone and Android smartphones in the United States, Canada, and United Kingdom. So, if you live in one of these countries, you can scan your receipts, answer a few questions, take a spin on their slot machine and turn all this in to cash rewards.

How to earn money with Receipt Hog?

First, you need to download an app from the Apple App or Google Play store. Click on the Sign Up button and create your account. You can link in your account with Facebook or use email.

Receipt Hog registration

Once you enter your personal information and account is approved, you can start snapping your receipts. The process is simple. Open an app, click on the camera icon on the home page. Place your receipt on the dark surface, fit receipt into the frame on your app, tap on receipt to focus the camera and click Done. Check receipt for blurriness and make sure it’s clear. Click submit and wait for approval.

Usually, receipts approved within the first few minutes, but sometimes depending on the store chain, it might take up to 7 days.

Every receipt which qualifies and approved will reward you with coins, which later you can exchange for cash into your PayPal account. The amount of points you will get depends on the total value of your receipt.

Receipt hog weekly limits

Once you reached 100 coins per week, any receipt you will upload will give you just five coins, no matter what was the spent. If you reached this level, I suggest to keep high-value receipts for next week.

You can submit no older than two-week-old receipts. And no more than three receipts from the same store with the same transaction date.

Your general grocery shopping receipts will earn you coins. Clothing, office supplies, and electronic stores will give you spins in the Hog Slots. And finally, restaurant and gas/petrol receipts will provide you with a Monthly Sweepstake entry.

Receipt Hog, is it worth it? Conclusions, Pros and Cons

I’ve been using Receipt Hog for two weeks now and earned 218 points. For £5 cash out you need to have at least 1,000 points. We can assume that per year I will make about £50-£60.

To submit a receipt, it takes only seconds, and if you combine this with the same concept app Shoppix, it will double up your money from snapping receipts.
