STOREWARDS: How to make money from your receipts.

When you go shopping what do you do with your receipts? Do you throw them away or even tell the cashier not to bother with a receipt? Well I was the same up until 1 year ago, when I learned that you can earn money from your receipts.

All you need to do is take a picture of your receipt and you can earn money! So keep reading and I will share how I use the newest receipt app Storewards.

What is STOREWARDS?

Storewards is the newest app that allows you to turn your receipts into money. It has replaced receipt hog but is so much better! You earn money by uploading pictures of your supermarket or high street store receipts to the app.

You can also share your referral code and earn 1,000 coins per friend that signs up, they are also working on adding some surveys to the app which again can earn you coins.

You can upload more then one receipt a day which is handy if you visit a lot of shops when you do your shopping.

You can also upload up to 35 receipts per week and they must be from the UK.

Once you have reached a certain number of coins you can redeem your coins for a gift card!

Can I take pictures of receipts from any store?

On the app there is a FAQ’s section which tells you which tickets or receipts are not permitted such as:

  • Post office
  • Household bills
  • Credit card slips
  • Hand written receipts
  • Ticket stubs
  • Refund
  • Public transport
  • Cinema

There are many more so please make sure you check out their app for more details.

You also need to make sure that you take pictures of your receipts within 14 days of your purchase and the receipt needs to readable.

How to take pictures of your receipts?

When you take pictures of your receipts there are certain pieces of information that needs to be visiable such as:

  • Store name (Address and phone number if available)
  • Purchase date
  • Purchase time
  • Purchase total
  • Barcodes (if any)
  • The product and price

How much can I earn from STOREWARDS?

Not only can you earn coins from your receipts there are also other ways as well:

  • Snap receipts – 600 coins for every receipt
  • Invite friends – 1,000 fro every invited friend that signs up and submits a valid receipt, your friend will also earn bonus coins
  • Come back every day – Get daily bonuses every day- you get a larger bonus every day until the 5th day
  • Achieve levels – Your levels go up the more receipts you snap – each time you reach a new level you will get a coin bonus.

If you are interested in signing up then use my referral code weik2 to receive some bonus coins!

They have just recently announced the option to send if online receipts using the email provided on the app. Make sure you read the instructions as there are a list of stores that they accept!

What rewards can I earn?

You can choose how you cash out, you can recieve an amazon gift card or cash into your paypal:

Amazon:

  • 20000 coins = £2 Amazon gift voucher
  • 50000 coins = £5 Amazon gift voucher
  • 9500 coins = £10 Amazon gift voucher

Paypal:

  • 22000 coins = £2 cash via payapl
  • 55000 coins = £5 cash out via paypal
  • 100000 coins = £10 cash out via paypal

I have had this app for 1 month and I have already earned £6 in Amazon gift vouchers and I am very close to cashing out another £2.

I love this app, it is so easy to upload my receipts and I receive my coins within 1 day of uploading.

So what are you waiting for? Download this app and earn yourselves some extra pennies!

What are Side Hustles? Find out how they can change the way you save.

Hello and welcome back to my blog!

Have you ever heard the term Side Hustle? Not sure what it means?

If you are paying of debt or saving for something special and you need that extra bit of cash to help side hustles may be the thing you need. Keep reading this post as I explain all about side hustles and why I love them so much.

What does Side Hustle mean?

A side hustle is any earnings made outside of your everyday employment.

If you do the occasional babysitting along side your everyday job. And you earn money,this is classed as your side hustle as its not a regular income, its a job you do on the side.

Having a side hustle is a great way to gain an extra income, I have had a side hustle for 3- 6 months and I love it. Any money I earn I put into my savings as well as the money from my day to day income.

What are Side Hustles?

Side hustles can be anything, from picking up extra hours at work, to even getting a second job. I have made a list of the most common side hustles.

  • Babysitting
  • Cleaning
  • Reselling (Ebay and online)
  • Extra hours at work
  • A second Job
  • Paid online Surveys

There are many more out there that you can do.

For my side hustle I complete online paid surveys and I also do reselling on Ebay.

I have downloaded many apps for my side hustle, I check in every day and answer questions. Sometimes I only earn £5 a day but other times I earn £20 a day. Online surveys is a great side hustle for people that may not have time to invest in another job eg stay at home parents.

How can I use them to save more money?

So your probably wondering how you can use your side hustles to save more money or even pay of debt. Any money you earn, even if its only £10 put that towards your debt payment, or save it. The choice is yours. Whatever your goals are use this extra money as a way get closer to reaching your financial goals.

What is the best Side hustle for me?

As you can see there are lots of different side hustles you can do. But you need to pick something you can invest some time in. I was worried that doing a side hustle would get in the way of my job.But on my days off when I am at home I sit for a few hours with a cup of tea and biscuits and answer some surveys. When I do reselling on Ebay I only list and source items on my days off, as it shouldn’t effect your everyday job.

When deciding on what to choose for your side hustle I would first start with selling any items that you have at home, that you no longer use. This is where most people make extra money from selling there unwanted items. Do you have a pretty dress in your wardrobe that you have never worn? Sell it!

When I first learnt about side hustles, I decided to sell most of my wardrobe. My wardrobe was a mess, I had so many clothes that i did not wear and they were just hanging there collecting dust. In my first month selling all my unwanted clothes, handbags and shoes I made £150. Which was a real shock! That money went straight into my savings.

Are side hustles for me?

If you have spare time to invest in a side hustle I would really recommend having one. Its a really great way to earn some extra money on your days off or in your spare time. Since starting my side hustle I have made and extra £300, this money has really helped me get closer and closer to my goals. Even though you want to pay of your debt or save quickly, you still need to rest, so take your time with a side hustle. Do not rush it, do not burn yourself out.

I hope that this post gives you a better understanding of side hustles and how you can use them to achieve your financial goals.
