Neat Receipts Review

I am a receipt keeper, and they seem to be taking over the house. Seriously, my box of receipts is a hot mess! Recently I was lucky enough to receive a Neat Receipts mobile scanner to review. Neat has also graciously offered to give one away to one of our lucky readers. We will tell you how you can try to win one at the end of the post, but first let me tell you WHY you want one.

  • Neat Receipts Mobile Scanner w/ USB Cable
  • Neat 5 Software Installation Disc
  • Bonus PDF Software
  • Welcome Quick Start Guide
  • 1 Calibration Paper
  • 1 Dry Cleaning Paper
  • 1 Alcohol Cleaning Paper

The set up was SUPER easy, all I had to do was put in the disc and it did a walk through set up. I was also given a trial of the  Neat Cloud and Neat Mobile app. My first “neat project” was to tackle the box of receipts I’ve been collecting.

The software allows you to set up folders. I found this very convenient for organizing the mess I had on my hands. I started with the receipts I had for major purchases. I keep these in case we ever need to file an insurance claim we will have back up for the purchase price.

I was so happy and impressed what started out to be a small scanning project turned in to a full blown scanning marathon! Not only did I do the purchase receipts but then I started on the bills, pay check stubs, and warranty papers. Next will be these scraps of papers containing various recipes. I will finally be able to get rid of the binder that is falling apart!

What Data Can Be Stored With Your Scanned Receipt

The software not only stores a scanned copy of your receipt or document it allows you to enter information about the scan.  Some of the information you can store includes…

  • Place Of Purchase
  • Date Of Purchase
  • Assign A Category
  • Method Of Payment
  • Purchase Amount (with tax separated)
  • Notes (great place for serial numbers)
These are just the tip of the iceberg!
What I Liked About the Neat Receipts

Screen Shot Of Neat Mobile

  • I love the Neat Mobile and Neat Cloud- being able to have access to the scanned documents right on my iPhone is amazing. You can also scan items on the go with the phone’s camera. This will work great with my home inventory. Should anything happen at home I will have the receipt copies right at my finger tips to file any claims.
  • The software is “smart.” When scanning receipts it picked up most of the information on it’s own, such as the place of purchase, date and amounts. On most major stores all I had to do was pick the category I wanted it in and notes on the purchase.  This is where the Neat Receipts varies from your ordinary scanner.
  • Moving documents around was a snap. If I inadvertently scanned a document in to the wrong folder with just a couple clicks it could be moved to the appropriate place.
  • While Neat has a larger Neat Desk unit, I love the size of the Neat Receipts mobile scanner. I have a very small desk and it fits perfectly. It’s small and light so I can easily move it to the side when I need room and pull it out when I need to use it.
What I Learned About the Neat Receipts

I learned I should read the instructions.  When I first started scanning I could not understand why the receipts were coming out so light.  It was operator error, had I read the instructions first I would have known that I should be putting the receipts in face down. That is pretty par for the course with me, I get excited and run off on projects without planning it through!

All in all I have to say I love this Neat Receipts.  I would highly recommend it to anyone.  It is a worthy investment.
