I would have given this app 5 stars last year. It was easy to scan my receipts and receive the rewards but now, no. It won't pick up the items on the receipt anymore and to make a claim you need to scan the barcode of the item. Even on items that haven't changed for years, like cheerios. Please update the app to catch these items again or got back to the old way of cutting out the tops and sending them in.

At first I was hesitant, I got use to clipping the little box tops off of my products.... When I first started using the app, I was forgetting to save my receipts, and it was quite frustrating when the app wouldn't pick up the items from my receipt.. But, since I've been using it for a little while now, I've grown quite fond of it. It's very fast and convenient, and easy to use...

Complete invasion of privacy. I thought I could just scan the barcodes from the boxes I have at the house that I purchased but they want my entire receipt with everything I've purchased! No thank you!! I will continue to cut the box tops and send them in because that way my privacy remains intact. Or just give up on the program completely. This is an appalling change to a good program.
