It takes less than a minute! These apps give you cash back on meals at restaurants, electronics, groceries, alcohol and other products.A few of the apps only offer gift cards, but you can trade those gift cards for cash here.Benefits of receipt scanning apps

 It’s a huge market out there; so don’t waste your time w/ the useless apps.  For the past year, I’ve tested the top 10 on Apple’s app store to see which are actually worth it in the long run.  

Check out my verdict:

1. iBotta

This one is my favorite. You can get free money with almost ANY receipt. I made the most money in the fastest time w/ this one.

  • AVERAGE PAYOUT:$0.10-$8.00/ per item

2. Walmart Savings Catcher

Don’t you hate it when you buy something only to find out you could’ve bought it somewhere else for way cheaper? This is where the Walmart Savings Catcher comes in.

Scan your Walmart receipt w/ this app and they’ll check competing retailers nearby for a better price on everything you bought. If another store has a cheaper price, they’ll reward you the difference! It takes about 3 days to process, but afterward you can use the money at Walmart immediately by scanning the credit card reader w/ your phone’s app.

  • SIGNUP BONUS:  None
  • AVERAGE PAYOUT: Varies

3. Fetch Rewards

Fetch Rewards is similar to ibotta, except it doesn’t matter where you bought it. They aren’t affiliated with stores, only products.  The only problem with that is there aren’t as many qualifying products that count for cash.  

Also you’re limited to 14 receipt submissions per week (which is still a lot anyway.)

  • SIGNUP BONUS:  $1.50 (using PROMO CODE: W9QKP )
  • AVERAGE PAYOUT: $0.25-$2.00/ per item

The Mediocre

4. Receipt Hog

Receipt Hog pays you without worrying about what you buy or where you buy it. You receive a certain amount of points, or “spins” each time you scan ANY receipt. Points can be redeemed for cash. Each spin can be used to play a round of hog slots, which has rewards ranging from 5 points to $100 (from what I’ve seen.) Although it has one of the lowest payouts of these apps, it lands higher on this list because EVERY receipt counts.

  • SIGNUP BONUS:  None
  • AVERAGE PAYOUT: $0.05-$5.00/ per item

5. Shopular

Shopular is affiliated with Ebates, so the company is reputable. They do percentage cash back, rather than dollar number and they have almost every store you can think of. Also it can be used for online shopping. The thing I’m not feeling is how it’s set up like a coupon catalog that you have to search through and save items bought, so I only use it for online shopping. Also, they have scheduled payouts every 3 months (I believe)

  • SIGNUP BONUS:  $10 (w/ this invite link)
  • AVERAGE PAYOUT: Varies by percentage spent

6. Checkout 51

Checkout 51 has a lot of $1.00+ payouts for everyday basic items. Also it doesn’t matter what store you buy from. The only problem is they have a very skimpy amount of affiliated products that count for cash.

  • SIGNUP BONUS:  None
  • AVERAGE PAYOUT: $0.25-$4.00/ per item

7. Shopkick

Shopkick gives you rewards for even just walking in the store when you turn your locations on. You can also earn points for linking your credit cards, shopping online, and (of course) scanning receipts. Unfortunately, there aren’t many qualifying items and it usually has the lowest payout rate

  • SIGNUP BONUS:  $0.25 (w/ Promo Code: GOAL187051)
  • AVERAGE PAYOUT: $0.04-$8.00/ per item

8. BerryCart

BerryCart is perfect for those with specific health needs. If you’re looking for dairy-free, gluten-free, organic or any other type of specificity when it comes to food, this is the best app for you. Personally, I don’t buy many organic items, so I didn’t find this too useful. If I were a health nut, this one would rank higher. 

  • SIGNUP BONUS:  None
  • AVERAGE PAYOUT: $0.25-$4.00/ per item

9. SavingStar

SavingStar was originally created to help you link loyalty cards from grocery stores into one account and get rewards each time you make a purchase. No more constantly carrying your loyalty cards around.You can also “clip” their coupons electronically. They’re automatically applied at checkout with a linked card.

However, if you’d rather scan your receipts, you only have three days to do so. Because of that, I didn’t find it was worth it if I have to prioritize receipt-scanning. The point of receipt-scanning apps is easy money, after all.

  • SIGNUP BONUS:  None
  • AVERAGE PAYOUT: $0.25-$5.00/ per item

10. Punchcard

PunchCard is one of the newer receipt scanning apps on the market. They’re currently partnered with a lot of popular retailers such as Subway, Target, and many other stores. Not only that, but you’ll also find a lot of mom and pop shops you can earn cash back from with this app. Although you won’t earn as much as apps like Ibotta, many of their partner stores won’t be found on other apps.

  • SIGNUP BONUS:  None
  • AVERAGE PAYOUT: $0.25-$5.00/ per item
