  • Receipt is too blurry
  • Receipt is too far away
  • Receipt is dark and not readable

No.  Each receipt is to be used only once.  It’s understandable if it’s a friend or family and you accidentally scan in the receipt more than once.  But unfortunately, the first person who scanned and submitted the receipt will get the cash rebate.
