I currently earn money and gift cards just for scanning my receipts onto three different smartphone apps.

Keep your receipts!

You may think that receipts are those useless pieces of paper that prints out after every time you pay for your items in a store or at some dinner establishment like I did. I used to hate how I would accumulate so many receipts because I would constantly be out shopping or stopping somewhere for dinner or a snack.

Back in January, I was introduced to three awesome smartphone apps where I can upload my receipts into and earn points for them. The points would add up to a certain amount then could cash out for Paypal or giftcards. I instantly downloaded those apps to my phone and took the plunge of collecting my everyday receipts I'd manage to get. I now won't leave any store, food establishment or any place that I know gives a receipt without a receipt. I make sure I get my receipts for everything.

The receipt apps I am referring to are: ReceiptPal, Receipt Hog and Punchcard. All three apps are great. I have been paid by all three and continue to do so every month. Punchcard takes just about any receipt from food, gas, pet stores, doctors and book store. ReceiptPal and Receipt Hog just take grocery stores and convenient stores. Every now and then, RP and RH take other places receipts.

You do not have to scan in your receipts every day. You do have to scan in your receipts before the seventh day or the app won't take your receipt. Punchcard only allows one receipt per place per day. ReceiptPal and Receipt Hog take many receipts a day but Receipt Hog only allows three like dates a day. Example: Save A Lot 10-6, Wal-Mart 10-6 and Magic Mart 10-6 will be accepted. If you try to add another stores receipt with the same date, it will be rejected.

If you decide to jump on the Receipt reward apps, please read the FAQ as they tend to change every so often.
