TopCashback announces 'snap & save' for its Mobile App: A cashback site first

UPDATE 04 Feb 2013: We've just launched the online facility for Snap & Save, so you can now view all of these offers on our website and upload an image of your receipt on our website too. This means that you can start to Snap & Save even if you haven't got an iPhone or Android mobile phone! Take me to Snap & Save >

Hi TopCashbackers,

We’ve been looking for new ways to help you save! We’ve always been about giving you money back on your online shopping, but what about shopping in-store at your local supermarket? Surely there are some savings to be had there as well!

Our TopCashback mobile app for iPhone and Android went down a storm, so we’re really pleased you liked it. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, you've been missing out. It’s home to a whole host of vouchers you can use in stores on the high street, plus you can access all of the online cashback offers and the important things like your account balance too!

So what could we possibly come up with next?

Believe me, there’s plenty! But what we’re most excited about is our brand new mobile app feature called snap & save! Sounds intriguing doesn’t it? Well don’t worry, it’s as easy (and tasty) as pie! Gone are the days where you can only earn cashback on your online grocery shopping, because snap & save is the first mobile app from a cashback site that allows you to earn cashback on your grocery shopping in-store, at all the major supermarkets! That’s right....Cashback on your in-store grocery shopping!

Here's a sample of some of our currently available products ...

Snap and Save Products

How can you get your hands on snap & save?

All you need to do is get the latest version of our mobile app for your iPhone or android phone. Simply select ‘In-store’ once you’ve logged in, and keep your eyes peeled for 'snap & save' in the green bar along the top.

Download or update the TopCashback app now:

Download iPhone App Download Andorid App


Tip
If snap & save doesn't appear for you, ensure you have the latest version (v4.5) or if you have it already then simply restart your app and login from scratch and snap & save will be revealed.

Snap and save feature

To view the current in-store offers, simply flick through the snap & save area in the app. After you’ve been to the supermarket and bought the product, simply find each relevant snap & save offer in the app, snap a picture of your receipt (ensuring that the supermarket name, product and receipt date are visible) and then hit submit. Once your receipt is approved, the cashback will be added to your TopCashback account and is immediately payable to you. Perfect!

You can earn cashback on purchases from all the major supermarkets, so whether you shop at Tesco, Asda, Morrison’s, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, the Co-operative or Iceland, then we’ve got you covered!

To cater for members who may not have an iphone or android phone (or even if you don't have a mobile phone), we will soon be making these offers available via a receipt upload facility on our website so that you can make use of them even if you don't have a phone ! (Although you will need a digital camera to take a picture of the receipt). We will also shortly be bringing this to iPads which have cameras.

Have you ever tried to persuade your friends to use TopCashback, but they've told you they don't shop online enough? Well perhaps snap & save on the TopCashback App is the perfect solution!

Tell a Friend


Tell-a-Friend & earn £10 cashback >



Please do send us a customer care enquiry if you're having any issues or to suggest any improvements as we'd love to make this new money saving feature even better !

Enjoy!

Kind Regards,

TopCashback

windows Phone version please
Really disappointed there is no App for Windows Phone and the Web Site can't upload from the phone either!

Windows Phone 8
Hi guys, I know that you made possible to upload a snapshot of the receipt via website, and I know that you are not currently developing an app for Windows Phone 8, but would it be possible to at least make the photo uploader compatible with the smartphone browser? So that we can upload a pic from the phone straight away? It's kind of a let down this way, and i'm finding using the service lesser than before due to having: take pic with the phone, upload pic to the pc, access TopCashback, upload the pic on the website.

I took a photo of my receipt to receive £50 cash back with O2 refresh but it has been cancelled? I want £50 please! I took a photo of all the relevant information so I don't see why it hasn't been processed?

Hi everyone,
@Kerryandco, that will be fine. You can also submit 2 photos, one after the other and we will still aprove this.
@Throttle, unfortunately we are not currently developing a Windows phone app. It is possible that this will change in the future though.

Best wishes,
John

As my Sainsburys receipts are double sided I have photocopied one side and put alongside the front side of the receipts. Will this be ok?

Another Windows phone app request :-)
Hi
I know you keep saying about uploading image too the website but is there any specific app being worked on for Windows mobile 8 ?
I do have a Android S3 handset but im sick of it being faulty so now I like my Windows 8 mobile even though its more limited on apps :-( I have a iPad but I don't fancy taking it shopping tbh ! Lol

Hi Guys,

@Littleskat, that is fine. If you want to, you can cut the card details out or fold the receipt so that they aren't visible too.

Many thanks,
John
  TopCashBack_Johnh | 20 Feb 13 - 12:02
Credit card details etc
Is it ok to black out the credit card details showing and tesco club card numbers.
I'm just a bit concerned because people are having their tesco club card vouchers stolen online at the moment.

Hi everyone,
Thank you for your posts.
The iphone issues will hopefully be resolved soon. In the meantime, if you are having a problem with the app, can you use the online service at http://www.topcashback.co.uk/SnapAndSave/Offers

MrsB2100- If you would like to send a pdf file or similar, can you sent it to snapandsave@Topcashback.co.Uk

Regarding timescales, you should see your transaction within a few days. If not, please get in touch.

Many thanks,
John

Upload won't complete
App on iphone 5 doesn't seem to be able to upload. It's not crashing but it just says "there's and error uploading, please retry". Needless to say the retry has the exact same error !! Any ideas ??

THis is fantastic, but I have one little potential request ... Any chance of being able to upload a scanned receipt? As in, pdf file, as opposed to a photo?

Not uploading
Having previously uploaded succesfully when I tried today and found the iPhone try's for a while, then closes the app. I assume I have not completed the upload so have tried 3 times including after re-installing the app. Is it just me or is there a problem

I have tried reinstalling but the function is still not showing on the Nexus 7. I think you are right in that it's not fully supported on the device yet. I'll patiently wait. :) Thanks.
  Let | 15 Feb 13 - 17:33
Reply to Val_Aspinall and Let
Hi Guys,

Let- it appears that the App on the nexus 7 is saying that Snap and Save is available however, it appears that it may not be fully supported. Could you try uninstalling and then re installing the App, and hopefully this should work. If this fails then please could you use a phone or the website to upload your images?

Val_Aspinall- It may be that your phone is struggling with the upload process because it is trying to compress, save and upload all in one go. It may be worth using the website to upload your images? You can do this by using this link http://www.topcashback.co.uk/SnapAndSave/Offers

I hope this helps.

Many thanks,
Hannah

Snap and save problems
Hi
I'm having trouble with snap and save. After i've taken the photo and it's uploading, it thinks about it for a while and then kicks me out of the app. I've tried un-installing and re-installing but it's still doing it.
Any ideas please?

Val

Sanp & save not showing on my Nexus 7
Hi there. I've just downloaded the latest v4.5.12 on my Nexus 7 and the snap and save feature doesn't show despite closing the app, relogging and rebooting the tablet. Please advice. Thanks!
  Let | 13 Feb 13 - 09:10
Time frame and Validity
Hi,

Once your receipt has been approved, you will get an email notification and it will appear in your account as a payable transaction. This can take up to 7 days.

As for the date range this is the date in which the offer is valid, and the date on your receipt must be within this time period. You must also submit your receipt within this date too.

We are looking into improvements soon and hoping that member's receipt submissions will be more transparent so that they will be able to see their submissions as pending in their account before they are made payable.

Thanks,
TopCashback.
  TopCashBack_Hannah | 12 Feb 13 - 12:29
timeframe
Hi, how long should it be before the items I have snapped will appear in my account, I did some on Sunday and they have not appeared yet.
Thanks!
  G0OSE | 12 Feb 13 - 09:27
Validity
So when it says it's valid from e.G. 11 Feb to 3 March - does this mean the date on the receipt has to be within this range?
  teppanyaki | 11 Feb 13 - 19:47
Sainsburys Receipt
Hi everyone,

If you have a Sainsburys receipt then could you send us separate photos for the front and the back of the receipt, or somehow try folding them to get all the useful information into one photo.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes,
TopCasback
  TopCashBack_Hannah | 11 Feb 13 - 14:23
sainsbury receipts
Hi the app only allows you to take one picture of the receipt to upload, However saisnburys print their recceipts back to back and therefore if items are on the back that are eligible for cashback, the logo of the supermarket is not shown. This also applies in reverse, the date of the receipt is also only on the back and therefore impossible to take a picture of a receipt back to back with this app. I think you should apply a method to be able to stitch together receipts that applys to supermarkets like this, a different cashback app for groceries has this feature to get around this

Hi ChrisK, i'll ask my colleague to have a look at the app on the Google Playstore for us. The Snap and Save function is only available for phones at the moment, and tablets are not supported. You can access the features online now though. Thanks, TCB

Hello have just downloaded app and used it for the first time bought some Clover earlier today and have taken a photo of the receipt with my phone and uploaded it.
Couple of questions how long does the cashback take to appear in my account and secondly if there was a problem with the photo not being clear enough or something else would you email me so that I could resend it?

Many thanks
  Carlo71 | 03 Feb 13 - 17:21
  Hi, we will endeavour to process your uploaded receipts within 2-3 days but we advise that you allow up to 7 days for busier timer periods and weekends. If we find that we can't read your receipt well enough or it is missing some of the information we need, then we will contact you via a support ticket (which you should also get an email notification for) and you will be able to re-snap your receipt for us. I hope this helps!

  fkrjd | 03 Feb 13 - 13:09

Website upload
This really sounds great, because often i'll consider using TopCashBack for slightly bigger supermarket purchases, but the cost of delivery makes it more economical to go and buy tham in-store. But my question is: how will us mere low-tech website-uploading mortals know what the offers are?
  MusicalLottie | 03 Feb 13 - 12:51

The website upload facility will show all the offers - so you'll be able to make full use of the service.

As usual it's not available for Blackberry. Loyal Blackberry users get shafted again. Nothing wrong with the phones, it's just no-one will makes apps for them. Am the only person who objects to the notion that we all "want" an iPhone? I'm constantly feeling like I am being pushed towards getting an iPhone all the time and am being made to feel that i'm "missing out" if I don't have one. I love my Blackberry and I object to all this subliminal "pity" and "hate" for Blackberry being pedalled by advertisers and the media.It's a free country and I will use the phone I want to use. With or without your wretched little app.

Just got my first Snap and Save cashback
I had to download the latest version (4.5) And then choose in-store. On the top green bar it says 'snap & Save' beside the 'featured' button. Just press 'snap & Save' and it loads a Kelloggs deal. You can then scroll through to the right to see the other offers.

I've just done it and earned myself 50p cashback - it's already appeared into my account as payable :-)

Thanks.
