My Friday Favourite this week is Receipt Hog – Snap Shopping Receipts from your Smartphone, Earn Money.
What is it?
Receipt Hog is an app that pays you to photograph your receipts from every day shopping for market research purposes.
How can it help me?
The next time you go shopping, anywhere — for anything — use the Receipt Hog app to take a picture of the paper receipt on your Smartphone.
Receipt Hog will then process this receipt and you’ll be awarded coins, which can later be redeemed for Amazon gift cards, magazines or cash via PayPal.
You can also have some fun by playing the “Hog Slots” and win free shopping trips, take surveys and more.
All the receipts you snap are anonymised, and Receipt Hog use them to inform and influence brands and retailers.
One nice side-effect of using Receipt Hog is that all your snapped receipts are kept within the app. Need to find a receipt for something you bought weeks ago? Receipt Hog will have a copy of that receipt for you to use.
How much does it cost?
Receipt Hog is free to use.
How can I get it?
For iOS devices, download Receipt Hog from the Apple App Store.
For Android devices, download Receipt Hog from the Google Store.
Thanks to the team at Plum (whose great app is a previous Friday Favourite too! Check it out at Plum – Save Money Automatically using Facebook Messenger) for bringing Receipt Hog to my attention!
