I do a lot of shopping, but my shopping trip does not end when I swipe the card, because there are so many great ways of earning gift cards when you shop. One of my favorite places is Receipt Hog, a smartphone app that rewards you points for taking a photo of your receipt and submitting it.
It is simple to do, and if you get into the habit of submitting your receipts every week, then you will get extra bonus spins that in return will give you more points. I don’t spent much at each store, but each receipt gives me coins or spins, even my $2 shopping trips.
Once you get 1000 points, you can redeem for a $5 Amazon gift card or paypal payment, which will arrive in your inbox after a few days. I’ve redeemed for Amazon gift cards several times and it is a great way to save up for all of those gifts our growing kids wish for birthdays and Christmas. While $5 every few months might not seem like a lot, it all adds up.
The amount of coins awarded per receipt depends on the amount you spent, see the below scale for points.
Under $10 – Earn 5 coins
$10 – $50 – Earn 10 coins
$50 – $100 – Earn 15 coins
Over $100 – Earn 20 coins
