How to Earn Cash from Your Receipts

Once you become a mom, you will find ways to save or earn additional cash that you can add to your monthly budget. There are so many savings tips that you can read online and different ways to earn extra money and now I’m sharing with you how to earn cash from your receipts. 



I’m pretty sure that some of you already knew about this app but for those who have no idea about Snapcart, read this post. I’ve learned about Snapcart when I received an invite last year but knowing me, I declined and did not attend the event because it is too far. Snapcart is a mobile application that gives cashback for taking pictures or scanning your receipts. 

I got excited but unfortunately, it is only available for Android users. Then a few months ago, I’ve read Nilyn's post about it so I immediately downloaded the app. Finally, it is not only exclusive to Android users.  

How to Earn Cash from your Receipts

1. Go to app store and search for “Snapcart” 
2. Download the app 
3. Register through email or Facebook account 
4. Check your email and verify. 
5. Start snapping! 

Note: You need to be connected in order to use the app. 

Snapcart accepts receipts from 

1. Grocery 
2. Cosmetics 
3. Drug/Pharmacy (with clear product description) 

I hope they can add more like bookstore.

I’m a type of person that always keeps receipts because I always list our expenses (cash or credit card) and just in case I need to return or exchange the item. So if you don’t care about receipts, this time learn to like it. Don’t forget to ask receipts and keep it even for few days because you can earn from it. 

But don’t ask someone’s receipts or wag mamulot ng mga resibo sa tabi-tabi because there are rules for receipts or baka masuspend pa yung account niyo. So just be honest. 

Receipts requirements to be accepted by Snapcart: 

1. Only receipts from products bought by you or someone you live within the same household, in a common shopper behavior. 
2. Only receipts bought for your household consumption 
3. Receipts must be clear and contain detailed information: 
- Store information (name and address) 
- List of purchase (item name in details, amount, cost, total cost) 
- Date and time of purchase 
4. Receipts must not be crumpled, torn, obsolete, upside down or covered 
5. Receipts must not be a duplicate 
6. Receipts must not be longer than 3 (three) days after purchase date 
7. Receipts that are generated by automated cash registers, and are not hand-written or manually typed. 

Bonus points 

Aside from snapping receipts, you can also earn by watching videos, answering surveys, taking photos. Use the coins that you earn in playing Snap Tastic game, where you can win coins or cashback. 

The cashback that you can earn from your receipt is from P0.50 to P30. 
Receipt from P1 to P2001+

I started last July but 3 of my receipts were rejected. Waah! Hindi pa kasi ko marunong magpicture. Ang haba ng receipt ng S&R and pinagkakasya ko sa isang picture, but now I know that I can just click the (+) sign. 

I only go to the grocery once or twice a month so I know that I cannot earn that much from my receipts. I hope they can increase the cashback tier, sana may additional points pa if P3k, 4k, or 5K ang receipt. 

Levels 

Every time you snap a receipt, you can also increase your level from Regular to Platinum Level. I did not know this before so nadowngrade ko. So now, kahit sa suking tindahan pwede ko na mabili need ko, napapaconvenience store or grocery na ko para sa resibo. If you want to increase your level, make sure you snap at least one receipt per week so the multiplier will increase. 

Regular 1.0x 
Bronze 1.1x 
Silver 1.2x 
Gold 1.5x 
Platinum 2.0x 

Patience is a virtue, right now I already reach the silver level.

Cash 

Once you reach the minimum amount, you can choose mobile load or bank transfer. For bank transfer the minimum amount is P220, P20 is the fee if you choose the bank transfer. For phone credit, you can choose from the following and additional P5 for the fee. 

Phone Credit P500 
Phone Credit P300 
Phone Credit P50 

From July 20 to October 30, I earned P220+ and I encashed the P220 through BPI bank transfer. It will take 7 working days but in my case, it took them weeks to deposit the P200. So I made follow-up last Nov. 11. One thing I noticed, they don’t reply immediately so I will just resend my message. I did not get any answer when I asked about the status of my cashout but yesterday, November 23, when I opened the app, I saw the notification. “Bank Transfer cash out ID#XXXXX is completed” 

October 30 - I encashed the P220 
November 23 - Received notification “Bank Transfer cash out is completed” 

I checked my bank transactions and I saw that the P200 was credited to my bank account last November 17 but they only informed me last November 23. Now, they finally replied to my message that my cashout was already completed. Parang kinopya na lang sa notification yung reply. Hehehe! So next time, I will check my bank na lang than wait for their notifications that it was completed. 

My not so good experience...

1. Sometimes it takes them days before approving the receipt so if ever rejected yung receipt, hindi ko na maresend kasi blurred na yung receipt ko or past three days na. Take care of your receipts.

2. There was a time that they rejected my receipt because it is not a GROCERY store. So I reported the receipt and I told them that LANDMARK SUPERMARKET is a grocery store. Iba naman ang receipt pag LANDMARK DEPARTMENT store. Nakakaloka! 

3. There was a time that I lost all my COIN REWARDS. I was shocked when I checked my coins and it was ZERO. I log-out and log-in and still it is zero. I just messaged and followed up and finally, after 8 days, my 3633 coins were returned. 

Lesson learned, use the coin rewards immediately para sure. 

4. I thought they will deposit the money after 7 working days but it did not happen and I have to make follow-up pa. 

Well, this app may not be perfect but at least I know that it is legit. I was able to earn P200 by just snapping receipts. May pera sa resibo, so if you want to earn some money, download this app. Barya man yan, pera pa rin.

  1. This is interesting. This is the first time I read about this app. I will try this. Sayang din naman. I also collect receipts because I also keep tabs of our finances and Credit card expenses.

  2. Hi michi, I am using the same app and was happy about it. Always looking forward to snap. I actually had to endure 10 rejected receipts at first and sobrang frustrating hindi ko alam bakit when I snap the photo, hindi sya na snap ng buo. Kaasar lang. And yes, nawala din ang coins ko sometime ago. But.. I am still happy with it. Sino ba naman ang hindi you can get rebates with your receipts na patapon na sana diba? hehe.

    1. Hi Jen! Yes, nakakainis pag narereject noh or minsan naiinis ko sa malabo talaga na receipt (nagtitipid sa ink). Tama, sayang din yung rebates.

  3. It was also nilyn who told me about snap. I love it at first but just dont have the patience to retry taking photos of the receipt. Hihihi. I often get repeat taking photos because the first one was blurred or out of frame. But then, love the concept.
