I liked clipping the boxes better. It was faster and easier than accumulating paper receipts and having to scan them. A genius level idea would be to link the box tops app with the Hannaford app (or any/ all grocery store/s). Those apps track what we buy anyway, so it would be extremely convenient for those apps to be linked and the info to be sent over automatically! Food for thought!

The app will no longer pick up on box tops products on my receipts. I provide clear pictures, but no luck. Sometimes I will purchase 10 or more box top products, and I don't have the time to go through and scan each item everytime I go shopping. If you're going to make me do that, go back to making us cut them off the boxes. That was easy and you didn't have to deal with technology.

It is nice to take a picture of the receipt and forget about the clipping, but this app has too many issues. Most of the time it doesn't recognize the items that have box tops and contesting it becomes a pain. Secondly, and I think most easy to fix, is you have to scan the whole receipt, meaning this app sees the payment method section. We should be able to submit the receipt at the end of the items. I like earning box tops, but these problems cannot go overlooked.
