The app is alright, but the offers could be better. Most offers are for such a small amount that you won't be able to build up enough to get to the minimum cash out (it's been years for me). I also wish there was a way to hide offers that you're not interested in/aren't sold in your area so that you don't have to scroll through every offer. Lately, it takes FOREVER to get into the main portion. You're stuck staring at the logo for like 30+ min. before the app MIGHT decide to let you in!

App has become glitchy garbage. Every time I try to add an item from a receipt, I scan the barcode & it says it doesn't qualify even though it's the exact same item. Then gives me a pop up that says "Bar code scanning isn't required, just a photo of the receipt is needed!" which is a slap in the face. I can't even scan my receipt until AFTER I scan a barcode, hello?? This app is trash, which is sad. It has a great concept. Just horrible execution. :(

Doesn't work anymore. Used to work just fine, now everytime I try and take a picture of my receipt it crashes and has been doing so since a few months ago. I've tried EVERYTHING to try and get it to work, updating, clearing cache, switching phones and reinstalling. Bout
