    For those of you like me that don’t have a smartphone, you can still use Snap! Just go to the website and sign up instead of downloading the app. You just upload a picture of your receipt to submit it just like you do if you use Checkout 51.

  • Ginny says:

    This is great! I use several of the money back apps like ibott & checkout51 but love that all my receipts will work for this one!

  • Awneme says:

    Awesome finally one I can use without a smartphone thanks for mentioning that!

  • Awneme says:

    One question though is it ok to use multiples of these apps like this one, savingstar and ibotta all on one receipt? Loading the receipt to all of them. Say getting 10¢ back for a purchase of a gallon of milk from one app, 50¢ back from another app, 25¢ back from a third app. So getting a total of 85¢ between the three apps is that ok or is it breaking the rules? I try to find my answers through the apps but get really confused by it all and don’t want to do something wrong, unethical, or illegal. Also you mentioned with this app you can use coupons with it. Can you use them with some of the other apps mentioned like ibotta, checkout 51, and saving star just to mention a few. I’ve seen others mentioned.

    • Barb says:

      Yes, it is! They are all separate companies so it does not conflict. It’s nice when the offerings align, but it seems like all of these rebate companies are adding up. In terms of savings 🙂 but also in terms of lots of receipt loading after each shopping trip.

    • Em says:

      Absolutely! I used paper coupons, Ibotta, Checkout51 and Snap on Saturday to get $28 worth of groceries for $1.13! Plus I then uploaded my receipts to RecepitHog and Punchcard for credit towards Amazon gift cards!

      • Kimberly says:

        I am really new to all of this stuff (budget, couponing, etc.) I just started doing the Wal-mart Savings catcher and Snap. I’m planning on signing up for Checkout51 today. Love it! Can you explain more about the ReceiptHog and Punchcard? I’ve never heard of those before.

        • Em says:

          Sure thing! ReceiptHog is an independent app available on IOS & Android. You snap a picture of grocery shopping at any store (it has to be for groceries but any store will work). You are then rewarded between 10-50 coins. Every 1000 coins is equivalent to $5 and you can cash out with Amazon gift cards (among others) or to PayPal. You can also earn coins for referring friends and instant wins. Since you’re already going to be grocery shopping you might as well take 30 seconds to get a few coins closer to $5! (

          Punchcard works similarly but you can use absolutely any receipt from anywhere. The rewards you earn from that are linked to MPoints which is a rewards program available on a ton of apps. (Nexercise, Sworkit,, The Weather Channel, Tic Tac Toe Classic, and a ton of other games) The points you earn on these apps is pretty low and every 2000 equals $1 Amazon Gift Card. But I spend about 5 minutes a day opening up the apps I listed above and completing the tasks and earn a $1 a week. I just do it when I’m waiting in line somewhere, watching TV, etc. I wouldn’t invest a lot of time into MPoints but if you start taking advantage of the few minutes of downtime you have then you can definitely earn a few bucks. (

          Also make sure you sign up for Swagbucks if you haven’t already. That’s one of the easiest ways to earn Amazon gift cards. I’ve gotten about $70 in the last year with extremely minimal effort (no long surveys or anything like that)

    Can u use foodstamps with this or just cash for snap an the other sites

    • I just wanted to clarify your question because someone who may know the answer may misunderstand. So just to be clear you want to buy your groceries with food stamps and then use the app to get cash back? Is that what you are asking? If that is what you are trying to do I would imagine that would not work unless you actually paid cash for an amount totaling the items that they have offers on.

  • Hi all, I use Checkout 51 so I am not experienced with Snap App however a couple days ago this app was featured on the Today Show and I am wondering if maybe the huge spike in users is causing any of this?? Maybe? Their system may not have been ready for all of that traffic just yet. Just my thoughts good luck though.
