2. Snapcart

How does it work? Just download the Snapcart app, register an account, and begin taking snapshots of your receipts.

You can take photos of your grocery, medicine, and cosmetic receipts build up your balance. The higher the amount on the receipt, the bigger the rebate will be. Once you’ve reached a certain amount, you’ll be free to withdraw the funds and there you have it. Instant money!

Keep on uploading your purchases and you’ll level up your account, which will increase your cashback multiplier for more points.

Want to earn more rewards and credits? You can participate in their other programs such as answering surveys, taking photos of certain items, and watching ads.
