Hi all
Does anyone use receipt hog? Ive started to use it; and a little sceptical.
Is it as good as they say? Or too good to be true?

    I'm using it at the moment. I would say its quite a slow earner but it seems to recognise the receipts pretty well and as I'm doing a similar thing with Shopitise it only takes a few moments to do this as well.

    If you collect recipes that have times very close to each other, i.e. 13.01 then another one at 13.10 then another one at 13.20, within the same day, they are likely to think that perhaps.

    I think these apps are cracking down on this. For example, Shoppix won't let you submit two receipts from one store with the same date on. It is a pain for me as I often pop into the supermarket before and after work so I lose out. I expect as more people do this these apps will impose more restrictions on what receipts you can use.

    I see. But say I submitted one receipt from say Tesco at 1pm which was mine and then a wombled Poundland receipt from 3pm, might there be some sort of way for them to determine that the Poundland receipt is not mine, maybe looking at one of the many codes present on the receipt, particularly if that person paid with a card?

    I don't see how they could. I mean, I will sometimes pay with my credit card in one shop and with my debit card in another shop. Also some of those apps allow you to submit receipts for anyone living in your house so that would account for different cards. I doubt these apps have access to the list of codes each company uses. I think what makes these companies suspicious is if people submit multiple receipts from the same shop or submit a ridiculous amounts of receipts every day.
