Press "SCAN" on the app and align the receipt between the yellow lines in the app. Press the button to capture the receipt. You'll receive an automatic amount of cash back. Make sure to take a clear picture of your receipt - it should show the name of the store, date of purchase and all items purchased. The better quality receipt and picture, the more you'll earn!

All receipts from any retailer with the following information will receive cash back:

2) Store Name
3) Total Bill Amount
4) Receipt line items with prices
5) The receipt cannot have been uploaded by your account previously or another account.
