I love this App because it is so easy to do! I do not look at this App until after I shop! Just scan your itemized receipts for points toward a pay out of either Pay Pal cash deposit or a digital Amazon gift card! The app lowered the cash out limits so you can also cash out sooner, too. But points per dollar pay outs are still better if you save points for a bigger pay out. I mostly cash out in this app before Christmas when I need the extra money to get free gifts!
How it works
You can scan receipts from any store that sells groceries, healthy items, beauty products, or more. Examples of types of stores are grocery, drug, pet or party stores to feed your hog and get points. I love getting points back from my party store receipts! You can scan receipts up to 2 weeks old. The hog even makes cute hog noises! So you might even be able to get your older kids to feed the hog your receipts for you. The cute hog will get skinny and sad if you forget to scan receipts.
I am an Extreme Shopper so I do not have time to scan all of my receipts. I try to do the bigger ones (like the ones my husband comes home with or non couponing purchases) since the point payout is higher.
You can not submit more than 3 receipts from the same retailer that have the same transaction dates on them.
You can not submit more than 20 receipts with-in a 7 day period. The 7 day period is rolling.

Receipt Hog told me there is no referal links for websites. Referal links can only be sent by, text, email, or Facebook. I can send you a link on Facebook in our Facebook Group freemoneymakingapps (with no spaces) or private message Cat Wils with your email address.
Receipt Hog Tips
Always scan the biggest receipts first. Coins are awarded based on receipt totals. If you have lots of receipts you do not want to hit the threshold limits (above) before entering the higher point reward paying receipts. Plus if you spins to play the Hog Wild Slots you could try to win your last receipt worth of coins. The app says one person wins the big prize everyday.
Make sure you have a good Wi-Fi signal before submitting receipts.
Check your lighting! I always turn on my phone’s light before scanning receipts ( either use your phone’s light widget or a flashlight app).
Long Reciept? You can take up to 9 photos per receipt. I sometimes use extra photos to take extra pictures of the important stuff they need – like store store name, date, time, total paid, etc. This and the lighting trick will get you less error messaged back from Receipt Hog.
I like to mark my receipts with a “HG” for Receipt Hog after I scan them.

If your on a cell or device turn your screen the long way before playing.
Is your Receipt not loading fast?
Check the bars on your phone or device to see if you have a low internet signal. My Receipts scan super fast if I scan my receipts at home with a strong wifi signal. Or try switching from Wifi to Data or Data to Wifi to check for a better signal for scanning.
Check your lighting so Receipt Hog can see your receipt better to give you points faster.
Look for a flashlight widget in your phone or device. Turning a phone light on before scanning your receipts will save you time because you will get way less Receipt not readable messages.
