App Reviews

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Easy way to make some extra cash

    By DeeW3850
    I've been using Receipt Hog for a few years now and I really like it. They pay out in gift cards or PayPal. Unlike some other apps you can take multiple pics for those really long receipts. The two things I don't like and removed a star for are: 1. You can't upload online shopping receipts (around holidays if you're like me you have a lot of online orders) 2. The smallest reward is $5, unlike others where you can redeem more of yours coins in multiple gift cards i.e. $5, $2,$1 etc. Otherwise this is a great app, and I highly recommend it. Receipt Hog: hopefully you read reviews and can work on changing the 2 items I mentioned which would make your app the best one I've seen out there.
  • A nice addition to earn $$ apps

    By TheWetNoseClub
    I just started using this but so far it is very easy to use & seems to be a great way to earn for all the shopping you do. I do wish they would have more ways to earn coins(to cash in later for $ or prizes), like more quick surveys, extra bonuses for buying certain items, offer bonus coupons to use at the stores & offer double/triple rebates/coins like ebates/other rebate apps do certain times of the year. I will update more when I've actually earned enough coins to cash out or earn a prize. Hopefully this app will be worth the effort ;& it would be really nice to find an app that pays much better than the rest!
  • 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.
  • Love this.

    By DaMoms59
    I have been a member of Receipt Hog for a little over 3 years. I have NEVER had a complaint and highly recommended the app. The company has made it so much more convenient for the user, as well as, expanded their eligible items that are purchased. Although, there are a few minor issues. 1) A receipt will not be eligible unless the name of the store is posted on the top. 2) If a receipt machine is running out of ink, but the receipt is eligible, they will not accept it (too blurry). 3) (this is only a very recent issue) The receipts I had snapped did not upload and there is no record of them ever being uploaded. I had sent a Q&A message to customer support in reference to #3. Will update post response.
  • Losing coins

    By Gameraterextreme
    I'm afraid I have no choice but to rate this app. This app was perfect but now I been losing points all of a sudden. I'm not stupid since I screenshot my coin bank all the time, so I have proof. I will change my review if my issue gets resolved. I contacted them but no response from them yet. Please fix it I would hate to lower my rating even more. Update 6/9/18 I finally got a response this week. The problem was resolved. Points went away due to invalid receipts since they were reviewed multiple times, but they were so kind enough to reward me back my coins due to all the confusion. That's what I call great customer service!!!
  • Useful but leisurely earning

    By LaurenTheAmazing
    I typically don’t write reviews, but I felt this app proved its reliability and usefulness very early on. If the receipt is misread, you can easily let them know and allow them to process it again. I use this app to scan any receipts I get, which is honestly the best part of this app. It supports every retailer’s receipt (as far as my experience goes), which is quite useful. The only downside is the pace at which you earn coins. I’m at 230 coins and I’ve been using this app for a month. Honestly it’s not /too/ bad, but I do wish receipts held just a bit more value. Though quite frankly, it’s not a large issue. I’ll still use this app to scan all of my receipts!
