8 Smartphone Apps to Earn Rewards For Your Grocery Receipts

Updated on June 2, 2018

You may not have realized the amount of apps that there right at your fingertips that could earn you some serious cash back. The amounts may start out small, but as you go along and scan your receipts, you will be able to see those cents accumulate to double digits and maybe even more!

Here are the apps you need to download as soon as possible:

1. Ibotta

The receipts accepted for this app can range from convenience stores to grocery stores. One of the main uses of this app is for their rebates from grocery stores, which is why it's popular amongst the couponing community. You can receive rewards like Vevmo cash, Paypal cash and even gift cards. There is actually a huge range of gift cards available for Ibotta users. Plus, you can find it on the Apple Store and on Google Play.

In order to use ibotta you have to find offers from your local grocery stores and you receive rebates after purchasing these products. These products may be things that you were already going to put in your shopping list.

One of the many perks of using this app is how some retailers allow you use their loyalty cards and connect them straight to ibotta so you don't have to take a picture of your receipts. So whenever you make a purchase that has a receipt it will later give you your reward for purchasing that item. But just make sure to unlock these offers on the app first!

Each week, there is an offer for purchasing any item from any store. You will get $.25 back guaranteed. Everyone will earn something just for purchasing anything.

2. CheckOut 51

The receipts that are accepted for Checkout 51 are primarily grocery store ones. You can expect to receive a check as your reward once you reach the threshold amount of $20.

This app is similar to ibotta in the sense that you receive cash back after purchasing specific items. What I like the most about this app is that you can get cash back from produce. Like right now there is a rebate for purchasing cherries, apples or strawberries. There are also many other rebates for other popular products like Quaker, Back to Nature, Cheez-its, etc. This app you can upload your receipts from any grocery store. In order to cash out you have to have redeemed $20 and then you can redeem for a check that will be delivered to your mailbox.

3. ReceiptHog

One of the unique traits of this app is that you can upload receipts from any retailer- including that receipt from McDonalds you were about to throw away. Your reward can be an Amazon gift card or Paypal cash, or a magazine subscription. You took your pick.

This app is very easy to use, especially since you just take a picture of your receipt and there! You receive points based on how much you purchased. You can also earn spins which are very fun! Plus, the more I spent I noticed that my receipts earned a higher point reward. I highly recommend this app, it may take a little longer to earn a reward, but before you know you'll be cashing out! It takes very little effort, so in the end it is worth it.

4. Receipt Pal

This app is great since you can upload a receipt from any where you can get one! It's available in both the Google Play store and Apple store. There are many rewards that you can choose from, like gift cards. Paypal is not available but that's ok since you can still find a reward right for you!

This app is one of my favorites to use by far! It is very simple and all you have to do is take a picture of any receipt from any retailer (it can be from a gas station or a clothing store, to basically anything). You do not have to spend a certain amount to get a set number of points. All you do is snap a picture of your receipt and you are set. In order to get points you have to take a picture of your receipt and whenever you get 4 receipts you get 100 points. This app is really easy and very simple! I highly recommend it.

5. FetchRewards

This app is very easy to use, it accepts all grocery store retailers, but no fast food receipts. You can scan many receipts from clothing stores to grocery stores and many other retailers. You get bonus points if you purchase one of the brands listed on the main page, but it is not a requirement. All you have to do is snap a picture of your receipt and you are good to go! It's as easy as that!

6. BerryCart

This app is more exclusive to organic and healthier items. You can get cash back from tofu, healthier cereals, and other organic products. The choices are limited and there is not a huge range of rebates, but it is still an app that is effective and you can get a decent payout from it. It basically pays to make healthier choices. This app is similar to Ibotta since it is a rebate app. Check it out!

7. SavingStar

This app is one of the apps that is a slow earner since there is not a wide variety of rebates, but this app is still great because it has popular name-brand products such as Sargento, Gain, Kelloggs and so much more.

You also have the option to connect your loyalty cards from stores you shop at which makes redeeming rewards so much easier.

8. ShopKick

This is not your typical cash back app, but it is still worthy of a mention. In this app you get points just by walking into the store. These points are called "kicks" and you can get 25 kicks just by walking into Wal-mart, Target and many other stores near you. You can also get kicks by scanning barcodes inside of the store. Or you can get kicks from your receipts. This app is very easy to use and you can earn points rather quickly by it. Just make sure to turn notifications and have your location on so you do not miss on any points.


Make sure you upload receipts within the time frame. Most receipts accepted by these apps must be no later than 14 days old, except for ReceiptPal that have to uploaded within the month. Happy spending and happy saving!
