13 Ways to make money by scanning shopping receipts

Some stores want to know what you are buying and will pay you for informing them. Other companies want to pay you to buy certain items and would like to use the receipt scans as a proof of purchase. Either way, you benefit by simply sending the receipts for things you would buy anyways.
