Overall Rating: 3/5 Stars
The concept of earning cashback and being rewarded for simple things that you are already doing on a day to day basis has really blown up over the past few years.
It literally blows my mind that there are virtually dozens of these types of shopping apps being created almost on a daily basis that will pay you for shopping at your favorite stores and buying groceries.
How cool is that?
Well, as I was surfing the web today and browsing Facebook, I came across yet another app that will pay you to shop and I decided to do some research and write up a review for you guys.
What Exactly Is ReceiptPal?
The company was founded in late 2013 by the NPD group and this is one of the many apps out there where you can get rewarded for simply uploading your grocery receipts and shopping like you normally do.
You can even shop online at your favorite online retailers and there are no restrictions as to where you can shop and this is what I particularly liked about this app.
The app is available on the Google Play store as well as the Apple I tunes store as well.
How Does It Work?
In order to start earning rewards and racking up points, you’ll need to own a smartphone.
In the year 2017, I think everyone should have access to some type of a smartphone, but for those of you who don’t currently have a smartphone then I’m afraid you’ll have to sit this one out.
Depending on what kind of smartphone device you have will determine where you go to download their app and start using it.
Once you download their app, simply go shopping like you normally would and snap a pic of your receipt and upload it to their system.
For each 4 boxes that you fill you’ll earn 100 points as long as you follow the guidelines which I’ll be listing for you guys here in a few minutes.
Check the following screenshots below to get a clearer picture of what I’m talking about below!!
You can also receive a 150 point bonus for entering and verifying your email address which I thought was pretty cool.
Additionally, you can enter their sweepstakes drawing that is held each Monday for a chance to win $250.
For each receipt that you upload, you’ll earn an entry into their weekly drawing.
Check out the screenshot below!!
Like I said a few minutes ago there are a few guidelines that you’ll need to abide by and I’ll list these for you guys below!!
- No duplicate receipts
- No utility bills (Or any bills for that matter)
- Receipts must be clearly visible and easy to read ( No blurry images)
- They must list the date, store, and the total purchase price to be accepted
- They can be no older than 30 days or submitted within the 3rd day of the following month
- No handwritten receipts
- No money order, ATM, or bank draft receipts will be accepted
What Rewards Can You Earn From Your Receipts?
While there is no way to physically earn cash from your receipts there are a variety of gift cards that you can exchange your points for.
This ranges from an Amazon gift card to a restaurant.com gift card plus much more.
To redeem your reward simply hit rewards at the top of the app, select your reward and hit redeem.
You’ll receive a code in your email shortly afterward which can be used to claim your prize.
There is no minimum threshold that you’ll need to reach to qualify to receive your prize.
Pros Vs Cons At A Glance
- A great way to get rewarded for something you already do
- No limitations as to where you can shop
- Earn free gift cards for virtually anything (Even shopping online)
- Works on both Android and Apple IOS Devices
- New users are limited to 20 receipts per week
- No referral program
- Limited income potential
- You lose points due to inactivity after 90 days
Is This A Legit App That’s Worth Your Time?
This app has been around for close to 4 years now and from what I can tell they are completely legit.
Whether or not this is worth your time and effort is ultimately up to you.
Are you the type of person who does a good amount of shopping each week?
Are you the main person that’s responsible for doing the majority of the grocery shopping or do you have someone else do this for you?
Depending on how you answered the above questions will determine whether you could benefit from this app or not.
Personally, I happen to do a great deal of shopping each week and I’m the one that’s responsible for doing all the shopping in my household.
However, if this simply isn’t the case for you and you would rather learn how to make some life changing money from a passion or hobby of yours, I think you would be much better off checking into a program called Wealthy Affiliate.
This is the program that I use to make a full time income from the comfort of my home and the place that has shown me how to quit my full time job in only 10 months.
If you have ever shown any interest in building websites and learning how to earn revenue from them I would highly recommend that you check them out and see what they can do for you.
Other than that, I really hope you guys have enjoyed this review and I would love to hear about your experiences you’ve had with this app in the comments below.
Until next time!!
