App Reviews

  • Not as happy as I once was

    By Female Intuition
    You can’t upload more than 3 receipts from the same store. Ok so when you go to a store that has different counters and you have to go by 3 of them, why should it matter? Kohl’s is like that, Walgreens is like that, even Walmart is like that in some cases. I find that ridiculous, so say I make multiple trips to a store due to forgetting something, like flu season where I am is in a hype. So that means if I have more than one receipts from the store because I went back for more stuff I can’t use them.... seems like the longer I have this app the stupider the rules become. Moving on to the other issue I have I’ve been told that it’s not a complete receipt, or the date was wrong, 1) the date they looked at was the return date allowed (wrong year) 2) I have the receipts that print out, what am I supposed to do accuse the cashier of not giving me the full receipt? I have other receipt apps that does the same thing if not offer a better deal, they have never gave me this much of a headache
  • Easy and fun way to earn $

    By Recmm
    The bonus surveys are now hidden in the receipts tabs. You don't know you are eligible for a survey unless you click on individual receipts. A few times I have started the surveys and then not been able to complete them due to a glitch in the system. Disappointing, but I still enjoy the app! Almost perfect for what it's designed to do. *Update 9/25. I was able to complete a survey today, but it was very frustrating. Receipt Hog should look into the bonus survey software...or it could be because I have an older phone. Update 10/1. I've learned to check my completed receipts for bonus opportunities. When doing the surveys I've learned to swipe the screen to the left to move to the next question. Swipe to the right to go to the previous question. Hope this helps to relieve others frustration. Very happy hogger! Update 1/22. Stick with it if you can. In the last four months I have been given the opportunity to complete dozens of surveys, one for 800 points. The only complaint I have is that you use to be able to see how many weeks you had to complete before leveling up. Now you just have to rely on the status bar...really not a big deal. Update 4/4: I won 2000 coins on Hog Slots today. It really happens to real people. Shout out to Receipt Hog!
  • This app is not worth your time

    By 1227mom46
    Customer service is non-existent. I have been contacting them for months asking them to assist with updating my email address because the address on file no longer exists. They never reply. The app itself sends an email with instructions TO THE ADDRESS THAT NO LONGER EXISTS. They also make a lot of mistakes when checking receipts. They deny coins and indicate it’s an “old receipt” when clearly the date is visible and shows I submitted it the same day I shopped. They deny coins and indicate it isn’t a complete receipt when in fact the entire receipt is pictured. They deny coins and indicate the receipt is blurry. The photos are taken with iphone8+ and are as clear as day. Their errors cause user to resubmit and verification takes even longer. When I cash out using my IBOTTA app the money is in my PayPal account within five seconds. I wonder why it takes a week when I cash out with receipt hog!! I’m deleting the app and I honestly wouldn’t recommend this app on any level.
  • Mediocre

    By reconcrazy1
    I've been using this app for a little while now. It has a few problems. For one, I frequent a certain gas station near my work and when I submit the receipts, sometimes I receive coins and sometimes I don't. Doesn't matter if the receipt is for gas, goods, or both. When I emailed the "customer service" they said that you don't receive coins for receipts where just gas is purchased.....yet I have. Another problem is when you submit a receipt, half the time the app denies it saying it's not a full receipt. That's because the receipts are read by a computer that I assume is an old Acer from the 90's. Since it seems to randomly choose what receipts to give you credit for, it takes a while to build up enough coins to receive rewards. I use better apps where I've received over $100 within the first few months. I have still yet to receive a reward ($45 through PayPal being the largest) on this one.
  • Not Worth The Time or Exchange of Info

    By McNasty19
    This app is terrible! First of all, the receipts don’t always get points. There are too many of my receipts that were rejected for “not available for reward,” for “being blurry,” “not being a full receipt,” or “important information missing” The receipts would not be blurry, but yet were rejected. The receipts were full; they were pictures of the receipt from top to bottom and still rejected. The names of some stores showed up weren’t recognized by the app and were rejected even though all the information was there and complete. Second of all, it took me 20 months of uploading every receipt I had just to earn a $40 gift card. This is not acceptable! I should have been rewarded much more for my time and information. Lastly, the amount of reward “coins” you receive for playing the slots was minimal if even receiving anything at all. This app is a complete waste of time!
  • NO CREDIT GIVEN FOR RECEIPTS, Customer Service ignores you

    By blueeyes in Bama
    I have contacted them several occassions on problems this app because not giving credit for any of my receipts that were entered durning the entire month of September 2018, and first few weeks of this month October 2018 todays date is October 17, 2018 and still no reply. i even attenpted to reenter 20 of the receipts previously entered in September still not showing and I've missed out on obtaining credit for any of the ones for September and first week in October which is completely ufair and discouraging ad well as complete waste of my time. i will give the App credit where its due and that beibg up until October far as i kbow i have been given credit for ones entered until the past month and half which has cheated me out of the money I earned for those and chances in the drawings. Which has led me completely dissatified and considering droppig this App its a waste of my time if im not given credit i deserved and money earned.
  • Why do you suddenly require my cell #?

    By Kmbondra
    Been using the app a few months, acquired 600pts. I was fine with it until today I went to check how much I need to cash out, and you won't let me proceed until I provide my cell number so you can send me texts. I'm really not thrilled about giving my cell number to anyone, I don't want junk/spam texts. If I don't see you get rid of this requirement, I'll just delete the app. I'm fine snapping receipts for a little extra cash, but not worth it to be spammed. Don't trust apps that want my cell number. Update: 8/4/18 no problems with the app or giving out my number. I’ve redeemed $5 twice. An easy way to get a little extra cash. Fun app with the extra slot spins and cute pig.
  • Cheats you out of your coins

    By VeeAy
    There are times when I submit receipts with a higher total before I submit receipts with less total and it always processes the receipts with the lower total first so I don’t receive the optimum amount of coins. Also, when I try to submit receipts at the end of the week of a challenge, it keeps on saying there was an error in my upload even after I restarted the app, restarted my phone, etc. Then I have to scan those receipts on to the next week and decreases my amount of coins I could be getting from the previous week. Quite upsetting. Love this app because this is a great way of just earning a little extra on the side but sometimes it frustrates me more. I’ve been so discouraged from using this app lately and then I just started again and the same unfortunate events happen.
  • Painfully slow earner

    By MotherHu$tler
    I downloaded 3 receipt scanning apps all on the same day several months ago. For Receipt Hog, I’m still 157 coins away from a $5 reward 😳. App 2 which only accepts grocery receipts and has referral bonuses I’ve made $69. I made the first $25 without having any referrals at all, only in receipts. App 3 pays about 8 cents a receipt and does not have referrals and I’m 39% of the way to a $25 reward which comes out to roughly $9.75. Again all programs were downloaded on the same day. The only reason I haven’t deleted Receipt Hog is because if I’m taking the time to scan receipts for the other apps, what’s 2 more seconds. I even have done 4 surveys so far for additional points and have hit all my weekly scanning bonuses. The app itself functions very well and I completely get that it doesn’t take much time or effort to scan a receipt, however, compared to other apps of the same nature this is a very very slow earner. I hope they decide to catch up to their competition. I know a lot of people who have deleted the app based on the slow earning alone and again I’d be one of them IF I didn’t love my other receipt scanning apps so much. 3 stars because again the app itself functions very well.
  • Frustrating

    By Mrs. Clark 06
    This is an actual app, that does pay out after so many collected coins. However, there are a few things that I DO NOT like about this app. Sometimes, they do not give you the correct rewards that you are suppose to receive. The amounts that they reveal for your receipt are sometimes wrong. They do not have an actual live person that you can speak to about any conflict that you have with this app. You can only submit an automated request 3 times and hope they get it right. If they do not give you the credit after the third time, you will never see that credit. I have tried to contact them by email, but no one responds. That was over a month and a half ago. They need to really do better with these issues. It is frustrating when you are not receiving the correct rewards & there is nothing you can do about it. But I will continue to look and investigate.
