Download CoinOut and Turn Your Receipts into Cash
Cash-back apps are great, but many of them don’t cater to your favorite local haunts — like that unsuspecting deli on your block or your favorite coffee pitstop on your way to work.
But don’t worry. We found an app that’ll reward you for keeping any receipt.
As seen on Shark Tank, CoinOut is a shopping rewards app. You’ll earn cash when you snap a photo of a receipt — any receipt, from any retailer, featuring any item. (Similar apps are a lot pickier.)
We put it to the test: A couple of Penny Hoarder staffers dug out receipts — a $5 Wendy’s order and a salad from a local sandwich shop. One collected 5 cents, the other 4 cents. The better condition your receipt is in, the more you’ll earn back, so resist crumpling it into a ball.
You can also earn cash back when you shop online with one click through the CoinOut app. Featured retailers include Walmart, Overstock and Warby Parker.
You can cash — ahem, coin — out once a week for an Amazon gift card or funnel the money right into your bank account or PayPal.
