What if I told you that you could earn rewards just for taking photos of your old receipts? Take a look at this Shopprize UK review to see how much effort you need to put in and how much you can expect to earn.
I don’t know about you, but nothing gives me greater satisfaction than earning money from doing very little. That’s why earning money from taking photos of receipts appeals so much. I’ve now tried several apps that allow you to earn from receipts and Shopprize is a decent option.
What is Shopprize?
Shopprize is a receipt scanning app that will reward you for submitting photos of your receipts. Information collected from your receipts will be collated with other customers and sold onto companies for market research. There should be no personal identifiable information passed on.
Is Shopprize safe?
This is my one issue. Unlike every other receipt scanning app, Shopprize has no website and the only way to access information about them is through their app. Although there is a FAQ page with some answers (last updated back in 2018), their Privacy page doesn’t load for me. That means I can’t find any more details about the company.
So if anybody could send me a screenshot, I would be most grateful!
Does Shopprize work on iPhone?
Unfortunately, Shopprize isn’t compatible with Apple, so will not work with iPhones or iPads. That means Android only. However, there are plenty of receipt scanning apps that do work with Apple products. Scroll to the bottom of this page to find some alternative apps.
You receive coins just for opening the app, which means you don’t have to spend a penny! The amount you receive increases for every consecutive day you open the app, up to a maximum of 60 coins per day. Although using just that method would take you quite a while before you earn any vouchers.
If you don’t want to wait until you reach enough points to convert for a voucher, you can enter sweepstakes. This means swapping some of your coins for a chance to win various prizes. These are low cost (usually under 100 coins), plus you get to see how many people you’re up against and when the sweepstake closes. This gives you a really good idea about your chances of winning.
There are a couple of major downsides to this app.
First of all, the number of customers who can use Shopprize is limited. I had to register my interest first, then waited for several months before they emailed me to say I could sign up.
The sweepstakes weren’t very tempting. On offer, expect to see things such as silicone cupcake muffin moulds, candles, Nivea gift sets for men and sometimes Amazon gift vouchers.
When using the app, I found it wasn’t great for photos, or so I thought. It turns out that it was because I was using a Hudl (remember those?) Moving to a newer tablet sorted out the issues.
There is also an option to become a “Power Shopper.” Occasionally, if you upload a receipt from Aldi or Lidl, you could be selected as a Power User. That means you can upload 30 receipts from Aldi or Lidl in that day. 30 receipts? Don’t think that’s going to happen.
How much can you earn with Shopprize?
For every receipt you snap, you receive 120 coins. Plus, when you earn a certain number of coins, you move up levels that reward you with even more coins. When you reach 10,000 coins, you have enough for a £5 Amazon voucher.
Including the daily rewards for logging in, it took me around 5 weeks before I reached my first voucher. Although this sounds like a long time, taking into consideration the time it took to take photos, this works out around £5 per hour. Vouchers usually arrive in your email inbox within a couple of days.
My Shopprize UK review conclusion
I like this app and it’s probably the best paying receipt app I’ve downloaded. The issue I had was that I was using at the same time as Shoppix, which is a much quicker and easier app to use. But, there’s no reason why you can’t use both apps at the same time (I do) and double your earnings.
I am a little concerned that I can’t find any details about the company. However, after 2 years, I haven’t had any issues. Plus, there is no information about me sent in the photos I submit.
If you’re looking for similar apps to Shopprize or Shoppix, then you can take a look at ReceiptHog. However, be warned, I thought it was a complete waste of time!
Do you have a Shopprize referral code?
Kind of… I have managed to refer people before but the link doesn’t always work. If you join, and there’s the option, try my code p8vkj. Although it is only worth 25 coins.
Remember though, this only works on android devices. Please also note that Shopprize does not always accept new customers and you may need to join a waiting list.
