Hi! We may earn money from the companies mentioned in this post. Thank you :)
Believe it or not, it really is possible to make money from your grocery shopping receipts.
Who are these companies? In most cases, these apps parent companies are market researchers who produce apps for shoppers.
The apps we looked at are:
- Receipt Hog
- Shopprize UK
Market research companies are really interested in your data, but not necessarily your personal data. In this case, they’re keen to look at your shopping habits in some cases and in others, promote products to you.
Whatever the reasons, as shoppers, for us it means that we get some free cash or money off products. And that’s got to be a win :)
