Here’s a simple way to make extra money from receipts. Yep, that’s right…you can actually make money from the things you’ve already bought.
I know you’ve probably read the title of this post and thought to yourself ‘surely that’s not possible?’ but I’m here to tell you that it is! You can make extra money by keeping onto your old shopping receipts, it really is that simple.
I’ll be honest with you, I used to toss receipts into the depths of my handbag after getting them.
But now I’m a changed woman…
I always ask for a receipt and I make sure not to lose it between the shop and the car.
How to make extra money from your shopping receipts:
Shoppix is an app where you simply take a photo of your itemised receipts and you earn Tokens as currency. If you sign up using my referral code CZ566X0J you’ll get 200 Tokens. A certain amount of Tokens relates to a certain amount of real-life money. Once you’ve reached the minimum threshold of 3,200 Tokens, you can choose £5 worth of gift cards/vouchers from either PayPal, Amazon, iTunes or Love2Shop.
The maximum is £20 for 11,500 Tokens and then you can start from zero again. This has taken me about 4 months to get up to by not cashing out along the way. It’s a bit of a slow burner for £20 but I think of it like this…if you download and start using Shoppix at the beginning of the year and it takes you roughly 4 months to reach the maximum £20, by the end of the year you’ve made £60 in vouchers just from your old receipts.
The great thing about Shoppix is that you don’t have to upload receipts right away so don’t worry if you have no time that day. To gain Tokens, all receipts must be dated within 1 week. There is no maximum number of receipts that you can upload per day/week but you will only receive points for the first 30 per week so if you have more, keep them and upload them next week. You will only get 1 set of points per shop, per day. So if you’ve been to Tesco twice in 1 day or twice in the week, upload them to Shoppix on separate days to get 2 receipts worth of points.
This is cheating a little bit because you technically don’t make money, but by purchasing certain products and uploading a photo of the receipt, you’ll receive cashback which makes the item(s) discounted or completely free of charge.
