List of 8 apps that turn UK receipts to cash

If you’re looking for the best cash back receipt app in the UK then I have not one, but eight to share with you today.  I use all eight of these receipt snapping apps to make extra cash at home from all my in-store spending.

Sometimes I scan my receipts on nearly all of the apps, if they qualify, to get the most cash value out of every single receipt!

Instead of looking for the best cash back app in the UK, use all of them to maximise your profits!

Read on to discover the apps that can turn your UK receipts into money.

8 apps that pay for your receipts

I have all of these cash back apps on my mobile and I use them as often as I can.  Always remember to ask for a receipt when you make a purchase in store as you can get cash back on every UK receipt. 

Some of these apps, like ZIPZERO, give you cash back on every single receipt.

Others have rules such as food purchases only or selected supermarkets only, so I’ll explain the rules below.

Every now and then, especially with food items, it’s possible to use almost all of these apps to get even more cashback!

Just yesterday I was able to scan my receipt on every single one except Shopmium.  I’d purchased some Hippeas snacks which were listed as free to try and also half price on GreenJinn and CheckoutSmart, plus the supermarket food receipt could be snapped on Shoppix,  Huyu, SnapMyEats and ZIPZERO!

I love it when that happens.  What a bonus!

1.     Shoppix

Shoppix is a UK receipt snapping app.  As far as I can tell it accepts all UK receipts.  There’s an extra bonus if you snap the receipt same day and regular short surveys to earn more credits that can be exchanged for PayPal cash.

This app is replacing Receipt Hog in the UK.

3.     Huyu

Huyu is a supermarket receipt snapping app.  You can snap receipts from major supermarkets and turn them into gift vouchers.  I exchange my points for Tesco gift vouchers.

4.     SnapMyEats

This one is for UK food and drink receipts only.  You earn a £1 Amazon voucher per 3 receipts to a maximum of £5.  So snap 15 food and drink receipts in one calendar month to earn a £5 Amazon voucher.

5.     ZIPZERO

This is my new favourite!  It gives 1% cash back on all UK receipts.  This cash back can be used towards your household bills.  Just add their details in the app and zip them down!

Important ZIPZERO update

January 2021 - Since writing this blog post, ZIPZERO have not paid out since March 2020 for me personally. 

My last cash out was 23.03.2020 (coincidentally the date we first went into lockdown in England) and my next request for cashout in April 2020 was voided. 

I have had £15 in 'processing' mode for months now and another almost £40 in available and pending balances which I really hope I will be able to cash out.

So what's the deal with ZIPZERO?  Why aren't they paying out? Is ZIPZERO a scam/legit?

They are apparently waiting for some investment or choosing the right investors, but given the pandemic, lockdowns and economic instability, the whole process has been going on for ages.

I have been snapping my receipts still with my fingers crossed that they will get investment and allow us to cash out again soon, but it's been so long now I don't know if it will happen. 

I hope it does, but just be warned. 

If you are already a member of ZIPZERO or thinking of signing up, you may not be able to cash out if they don't secure the finances they need.

It’s up to you whether you take the risk of spending time taking photos of your receipts without any guarantee of being rewarded.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed they will be up and running with cash outs soon!

6.     GreenJinn

This is a UK coupon app that has digital coupons for the supermarkets each week.  They refresh on a Monday and if you buy any of the products then you can get the cash back by snapping your receipt.  You can withdraw the cash back to your PayPal or bank account.

7.     Shopmium

Save money at the supermarket with Shopmium and their coupons.  If you purchase an item featured on their app then simply snap your receipt, scan the product’s barcode and the cash back will be sent to your PayPal within a few days.

Use my referral link to get an item with 100% cashback in the app.  As I type it’s free Ben and Jerry’s!  Here it is: 

8.     CheckoutSmart

This is also a coupon app so you have to buy the exact products in the app to get the cashback.  If you buy something then select which item you have bought from the correct retailer and snap your receipt.  Once you have at least £5 cash back then you can withdraw.  If you have under £20 you will be charged a small fee, so it’s best to wait until you have over £20 in cashback to avoid the fee and get all your cashback.  They feature supermarkets, both online and in-store, plus loads of High Street retailers.  Here’s their website:
