If you haven't been using the Fetch Rewards app, you're missing out! It's such an EASY way to make money back on your groceries!

Want to make a little extra money from scanning your grocery receipts? Fetch Rewards is an app that allows you to earn free gift cards to Amazon, Panera, Barnes & Noble, and so much more — just for scanning your grocery receipts.

That’s right! All you have to do is open up the app and literally take a picture of your grocery store receipt and hit submit and you’ll get points back! You can cash in these points for fantastic gift cards to help you stretch your budget a little further OR be able to afford some fun splurges!

Here are 7 reasons why I have fallen in love with the Fetch Rewards app:

1. You Can Scan ANY Grocery Store Receipt

Any and all grocery store receipts qualify — including receipts from Aldi and Dollar Tree!

2. You Can Scan Up to 14 Receipts Per Week

This is great if you make multiple grocery shopping trips in a week or you save your receipts and then scan them all in at once (you have up to 14 days to scan in your receipt from the day you went shopping).

3. You Earn Points On Every Receipt

While they have various items you can purchase to earn bonus points, no matter what you bought, if you scan your receipt, you’ll get points just for scanning your receipt!

4. You Don’t Have to Mess With Scanning Bar Codes

Unlike some of the other rebate apps, you don’t have to mess with finding the offers and checking the boxes for them or scanning the barcodes on the individual items. You just scan your receipt, they automatically add the points to your account, and you’re done!

5. You Earn Bonus Points for Referring People

Fetch Rewards offers a great referral program and you can earn 2,000 points for every person you refer who signs up with your code and then scans a receipt. Spread the word about this great app and they’ll reward you for doing so!

6. You Don’t Have to Earn a Minimum Before Cashing Out

There’s no need to wait until you’ve hit a $25 payout with Fetch Rewards! As soon as you have 3,000 points, you can cash that in for a $3 Amazon, Panera, or Target gift card! When you hit 5,000 points, there are over 50 gift card rewards to choose from!

7. You Get the Gift Cards Almost Immediately!

Best of all, when you request a gift card reward, they will email it to you and give you access to it within a minute or two!

How Much I’ve Been Earning

I’ve heard that you typically earn more points in the beginning and then you earn fewer points the longer you’ve used the app. But hey, all points are free money in my book, so I’ll take them.

Right now, I’ve been earning the equivalent of at least $1.50 per week. It’s not a TON of money, but every little bit adds up! And since it only takes me seconds to scan my receipt, it’s so worth it!

My plan is to use the money I’m earning to purchase something that’s $5 or $8 from Amazon every other month to help stretch our $70 Grocery Budget just a little bit more. It would also be fun to set aside all of the money you’ve earned in a year and use it for Christmas gifts or one larger purchase.

    I couldn’t help but notice your points total in the first screenshot…is that all from referrals in the last couple weeks? Incredible!

  2. Anne C says:

    Do you have to scan the entire receipt? Isn’t that hard to do when they are a mile and a half long, like mine are from Aldi’s? LOL

  3. Ruby says:

    Can I submit email/online shopping receipts?

  4. Lana says:

    I am really on the fence about these apps. My husband worked in the IT dept of the first grocery chain to have store loyalty card and I know that they were mainly instituted to collect information about shopping habits. I feel like the onformation they are collecting is far more valuable to them than the rewards they are doling out and I wonder how much of my personal information they are collecting.

    • Yes, they are definitely collecting info… but since the stores already have it on record and I’m posting in detail about it here, I don’t really worry about it. 🙂 But if they were asking for personal info or sending me junk mail or something, I would be concerned. This is why I recommend being careful with what kinds of personal info you give out to these kinds of places and that you make sure it’s not connected to your phone location in any way or to other apps or social media accounts of yours.

  5. Kristen says:

    I am having trouble scanning receipts on my iPhone. Anyone else have this issue?

  6. Judy Taylor says:

    I didn’t see where to enter the code for 2000 points when I joined. How do I find that? Thanks!

  7. CJ says:

    How do you get the referal code to give to others?

  8. CJ says:

    I scanned my first receipt and it shows no points earned. Arent you supposed to get points for every receipt?

  9. cj says:

    I signed up and entered 2 receipts and earned 2706 points! One of the receipts kept giving me 0 points but the third time I tried it it gave the points. I only recently got my first smartphoen so I’ve never tried rewards sites like this before. Thanks for the info!

  10. Gwen says:

    I have scanned receipts that aren’t even groceries and I got points. The only ones I received no points for is for fuel and a fast food restaurant.

  11. Sue E Montgomery says:

    No where to sign up to do this on the link given. Have they closed it down?

  12. Veronica says:

    It gives me an error saying invalid code. When I contacted customer service, they said it isn’t valid either.
