Storewards is a receipt scanning app that will reward you for cash for scanning your till receipts!
If you haven't come across receipt scanning apps before, the concept is that the receipt scanning services will allow you to scan receipts for items you have purchased into the app and award you points for each upload. Once you reach a certain level of points, you can redeem them for gift vouchers from stores such as Amazon or for PayPal credit.
The apps make money by sharing your receipt data with market research companies, who analyse the data to look at things such as buying trends and patterns, and you may well start to see more adverts for items you purchase frequently. Some people don't like the idea of their buying habits being tracked; however, realistically, many retailers monitor what you spend, and on what... you think your supermarket loyalty cards are there for your benefit? Nope, the supermarkets are watching what you buy and targeting their ads and coupons towards your buying habits... so it's a similar concept, just on a broader scale, but at least you get some extra money from your buying data being used...
The apps accept receipts from most major retailers in the UK, but you can't use receipts from certain purchases, such as parking tickets & lottery purchases. Still, receipts from supermarkets, clothing stores, and mainstream retailers work fine.
This app offers 600 points per receipt you upload, with point redemptions starting at 20,000 points a £2 Amazon voucher.
Receipt scanning apps aren't known for their speed in being able to cash out; the Receipt Hog app, which Storewards replaced in 2020, was notorious for being a slow burner, but this app is a step in the right direction, with much faster payouts possible and that's very welcome, and sensible, as it can be very disheartening to be scanning receipts, knowing it could be months before you see any reward and many people stop!
