    The other day I went shopping at Target. About 20 min after I checked out I got a survey that asked if I was willing to take a picture of my Target receipt. I said yes, and then snapped a picture. It failed to send correctly but ensured me that they would try to ask me again later so I could get my credit. They never did. :(

    Anyone else happen to get a survey like this? How much money is it worth?

    Google stated that it will help Google search results... I wonder how specifically?

    I had a similar survey after shopping at Publix and had the same problem. I don't know if it credited or not.

    I am pretty sure that I did NOT get any credit for my failed upload.

    I'm curious about this. Are you saying after you left a Target store the Google Rewards app popped up requesting a photo of your receipt? I wasn't even aware Google Rewards was partnered up with any retail chain. Sounds more like spam.

    That is pretty much what happened.

    I mean before it always asks about shipping experiences about recently visited stores ...Google pretty much knows.

    I should have clarified -- was it indeed the Google Rewards app, or was it a browser or a texting popup?

    Now you know why it's called Google Rewards. Google was just rewarded...

    But the OP has yet to confirm or deny that this is indeed a Google Rewards issue, or a popup in his browser or texting app. Unless someone else can confirm that Google Rewards is now linking into retail chains like Target.

    It is from the Google Rewards App. I've gotten a couple of them wanting me to upload my receipt. Haven't had one upload successfully yet. Funny enough I got one today while waiting in line to check out at Wal-mart.
