Is Receipt Hog similar to the National Consumer Panel™?

It is similar, though instead of spending 15 minutes scanning products barcodes after each grocery trip, it only takes 30 seconds to snap a photo of your receipt!

Is Receipt Hog only available for the iPhone?

Nope, Receipt Hog is now avaliable for both iPhone, iPod Touch, & All Android Devices.

What rewards can I earn?

For every qualifying grocery receipt you submit, you'll earn coins which are redeemable for charitable donations and cash. Active participants become eligible for additional rewards including exclusive coupons and special offers from the brands you buy.

I am organizing a fundraiser, can I use Receipt Hog to raise money?

Yes! Please contact us here and we'll follow up with details on how you can leverage Receipt Hog for a group fundraiser to raise money for your school, club, or other charitable organization.

Sounds too good to be true... is Receipt Hog a scam?

No! We are a market research company that works with the leading consumer goods brands. Your receipt data along with the answers to any survey questions you answer will be made anonymous and summarized in market research reports for brands that purchase this data.

What stores or products earn coins?

Receipts from ANY grocer, supercenter, club store, dollar store, drugstore, convenience mart or pet supply store count - regardless of what products you buy! Receipts from restaurants, apparel, home improvement, and gas-only purchases do NOT earn coins.

How do I know if my receipt image is usable?

Receipt submissions must contain the retailer name, all items purchased, their prices, the date, and the total amount paid. If any of this information is illegible to a person transcribing your receipt, you may not earn coins.

What will you do with my receipts?

Your receipt data along with the answers to any survey questions will be made anonymous and summarized in market research reports for brands that purchase this data.

What about my privacy?

Receipt Hog will NOT share participant names or identifiable contact information with any third party unless you provide us your express consent to do so. By default, this information will only be used as necessary for communications with you, for the management of rewards and payouts, and to help prevent fraudulent use of our services.

Please note that Receipt Hog will NOT see your credit or bank card numbers. The receipts you submit do NOT contain this information - only the last 4-digits of the card number are printed on receipts.

If you purchase any specific items that you don't want to make visible to Receipt Hog, simply mark over them before photographing the receipt so that they cannot be read. You may also simply not submit a receipt at any time for any reason - you are always in control of what information you share with us. Please note, however, that individuals who consistently submit all of their receipts will receive greater rewards and have a greater influence on the brands that leverage this anonymous data.
