Make money at home from receipts with Receipt Hog and Shoppix

Posted on

I don’t know about you, but I love making money from various side hustles at home.  Side hustles that allow me to be in the comfort of my own home and make money easily!  That’s the life, right?  You might be wondering is it really possible to make money from my receipts?  Is it that easy?  Well snapping receipts isn’t a get rich quick scheme, but it is a quick and easy way to make a little extra on the side over time. It’s also quite fun!  Today I will introduce you to Receipt Hog and Shoppix.

Receipt Hog

Make money at home from receipts with Receipt Hog and Shoppix 1

I’ve been using Receipt Hog since January 2017 and so far I’ve cashed out £20 in total.  Cashing out starts at £5 once you earn enough points.  You earn points by snapping a photo of your receipt in the app and waiting for it to be verified.  All sorts of receipts can earn you coins which you can eventually exchange for cash directly to your PayPal account!

Some receipts won’t earn you coins, but they will earn you some slots.  The slots are a chance to earn extra coins and even the full cost of your last shop back.

If you download Receipt Hog then enter my referral code Yon60187 and we’ll both get some free spins on the slots!

Shoppix

Shoppix is new to me and I’ve been using it for just over one month.  I’m already up to 2510 tokens though which is great as I can cash in at 3200 tokens, so I’m not far off.

It works in a similar way to Receipt Hog in that you take a photo of each receipt on the app and wait for it to be verified.  You then earn tokens for each receipt which can be exchanged for vouchers or cash to your PayPal.

You can also earn scratch cards for a chance to win more tokens.  I win tokens on almost every scratch card they award me.

They also have short surveys each week to earn you more tokens.  By short I mean they are literally one or two questions and take a minute or less!

If you enter 52YFMN8U when you download the Shoppix app, we can both get 200 tokens when you snap a valid receipt and complete the profile survey!

Overall thoughts

Snapping receipts for cash on apps like these is definitely not a way to make a full time living, as I already mentioned, but it’s a quick and easy side hustle to make a bit of pocket money and costs you nothing to do.  It’s so easy to download the apps and they are really straight forward.  It’s taken me a while to make £20 on Receipt Hog, but I seem to be collecting points much quicker on Shoppix.  The surveys really boost my points on Shoppix. 

If you do most of your shopping in stores then you’ll probably make a lot more a lot quicker.  I’m more of an online shopper and you are only able to snap in-store receipts on both apps.

Tip - use both apps to maximise the cash you can make from each receipt!
