Amazon Shopper Panel
Amazon has launched a new program that can earn you $10 or more per month by scanning your receipts. It’s called ‘Amazon Shopper Panel’ and it is an opt-in, invitation-only program where participants can earn monthly rewards by sharing receipts from purchases made outside of Amazon.com and by completing short surveys.
How it Works
Earning rewards is easy. You need to upload 10 eligible receipts per month by using the Amazon Shopper Panel app to take pictures of paper receipts or by forwarding email receipts to firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ll earn $10 towards either an Amazon Balance or a charitable donation.
Valid receipts include purchases from grocery stores, drugstores, department stores, restaurants, movie theaters, and theme parks in the United States. Receipts from Whole Foods Market, AmazonGo, Amazon Four Star, and Amazon Books aren’t eligible.
You’ll earn additional rewards each month for every survey you complete. Your participation will help brands offer better products and make ads more relevant on Amazon.
The Amazon Shopper Panel is available to a limited number of Amazon customers in the US. Customers receiving an invitation to join the panel can download the app from the App Store or the Google Play Store. Interested customers who did not receive an invitation can still download the app. But they will need to wait to be notified via email when space becomes available.
This sounds like an easy way to make a few bucks every month, and it is similar to other apps like Ibotta and Swagbucks. Amazon says that it only receives information that panelists explicitly choose to share via the Shopper Panel, such as the information extracted from any uploaded receipts. It also says that it deletes any sensitive information, such as prescription information from drug store receipts for example. Amazon will also let you delete previously uploaded receipts at any time, if you feel like you may have uploaded any sensitive information.
