RECEIPT HOG REVIEWThis will be a review of Receipt Hog an app that pays you to scan your receipts on your phone. Earlier this week I have been featuring posts about saving money apps to help you earn cash back on top of your already in store savings. If you missed these posts I would suggest your take a look at those first.

Receipt hog is an exclusive group so, make sure you apply today as there are limited available slots due to the increased popularity. Receipt hog is owned by InfoScout, a company that uses your uploaded receipts for marketing research.

IS RECEIPT HOG A SCAM?Receipt Hog is a legit site. It is a very useful easy way to gain extra cash on your everyday purchases. The main complaint I have with this app is you may not get to use it right away since it is an app that uses the information for marketing research. I do love how it offers PayPal as a payout option just making it easier on getting my cash back quicker.
Overall, along with my Ibotta and Checkout 51 apps, check out my page for my reviews on those apps, Receipt Hog is a great app to add to the mix. Receipt Hog is user-friendly, doesn't limit you to certain stores, and offers a quick payout option with PayPal like Ibotta. Using all three apps together and your already in store savings gives you endless saving options.
