After you purchase your products from the store, save the receipt. Don’t throw them out. Open the Checkout 51 app and scroll down to the bottom, where you will see the button ‘Upload Receipt’. I find that I have problems taking clear pictures of my receipts with my iPhone 4. So I take a picture under a light or during the day when the sun is out.

1. Open Checkout 51 App

2. Scroll down in Checkout 51 App to ‘Upload Receipt’
Checkout 51 – Scroll down to Upload Receipt
3. Checkout 51 Steps – Get Started
This screen just tells you how to upload your receipt. When you take a pic of the receipt, make sure you take a pic of the whole receipt from top to bottom. I usually take a pic of the top part first and then add a section to add in the bottom portion of the receipt. That way the receipt is a little clearer. Another tip is when you go shopping, I usually pay for the Checkout 51 item separately, so I have a shorter receipt to take a pic of.

4. Take a Pic of your Receipt
Line up your receipt with the frame of your device. The edges of the receipt with the frame of the Checkout 51 picture. The Store name/logo is at the top and when you take a pic, the product, price and date of purchase must be clear. Then click on ‘Take Photo’.

6. Way to Save with Checkout 51
After you submitted your pic and selected the products, the next screen tells you how much you saved on your receipt.

Your receipt is sent to Checkout 51 for verification. Usually they are quick about approving the receipt, but if the receipt is blurry or not the right items purchased then they will decline them. So keep your receipts for a few days after you submit it in case you need to submit them again. I made a mistake of throwing my receipt out and the receipt got rejected. Wasn’t too happy, but I went out and purchased another one anyways and claimed the receipt again. I didn’t mind buying another pack of Peek Freans. Yummm 🙂
