Final Thoughts

This is the most fuss-free earning app I’ve used so far! I don’t have to purchase the special offers from specific stores and I earn points for almost every receipt I scan! So far, I’ve scanned my receipts from grocery stores, big box stores, drugstores and even specialty stores like Whole Foods. Here’s a list of the stores they’ll accept. Most of the time I get bonus points so it’s super easy to reach the 3000-point threshold.

The app has some minor glitches at times where it will freeze or I can’t submit a scanned receipt. To remedy this, I just close the app and try again in a couple of hours. Fetch Rewards is a fairly new app so I’m willing to overlook that.

This app is definitely worth it. It takes me about 1 minute to upload a receipt. To keep it even more low maintenance, I don’t even pay attention to the special offers. I just upload my receipts! If you’re a couponer though, be sure to look at those special offers because Unilever is included in this app! Plus, you can use coupons and still receive points.
