Share This Post :

Review by prince Johnathon:

I’ve patiently waited and now it’s in my hands..I can’t wait to use it. (I’ll need to invite some friends over for pizza and trick them into helping me scan these receipts)


NeatReceipts for Mac arrives in a white and orange cardboard box with a picture of the scanner on the front. On the back of the package is an image of the NeatReceipts software along with a listing of features. The Neat Company gets kudos for being green by using 100% recyclable materials in the packaging.

Opening the box reveals the Neat scanner, a mini USB cable, a quick start guide containing the installation CD, set up instructions, calibration paper, dry cleaning paper and alcohol cleaning paper. This also contains PDF converter software for free. $100 value.

What makes NeatReceipts for Mac especially appealing is the compact size and the light weight scanner allowing me to take it on the road, to my office or use it at home. It’s small size that packs a lot of features and helps me organize my office littered with paper.

You can find NeatReceipts on their website for: $199.95 with $30.00 off making it $169.95.

They offer Free 30 Day Trial of NeatCloud Included!

After scanning 7 documents, I’m hooked. This will not only save me time and money as well.

    What a great way to keep track of receipts!

  • Joan October 22, 2012, 2:56 PM

    Scanning recipes sounds like a handy thing. I’d like to try it out myself.

  • Tabathia October 22, 2012, 2:59 PM

    It would help me keep up with my receipts so I can stay on budget and to organize my tax forms

  • Emily Cain October 22, 2012, 3:01 PM

    Neat Reciepts can keep my desk clear of clutter. Also, it will help me track my spending and know where potential savings are.

  • Tana Austin October 22, 2012, 3:01 PM

    I have a mountain of paperwork that I need to get under control. I would love NeatReceipts to help me get organized!

  • Melissa Squires October 22, 2012, 3:02 PM

    You should see all the receipts I have, taking up way too much space to even describe! This would come in SOOOOO handy!!!

  • Mila Korn October 22, 2012, 3:05 PM

    I recently started a new business would be handy!

  • Lynne October 22, 2012, 3:09 PM

    I’m so bad with receipts! I’d love this!

  • Ashley S October 22, 2012, 3:09 PM

    my husband insists to keep EVERYTHING! Maybe this would help him let go of some!

  • Laura L October 22, 2012, 3:16 PM

    My husband would just die for me to have this- I have a bad habit of keeping our desk space cluttered with receipts I’m saving!

  • Donna L October 22, 2012, 3:19 PM

    I am in sales and I am constantly losing my receipts. I have to scan them to submit them electronically so this would be so much better than my system now. Thanks!

  • Vy October 22, 2012, 3:26 PM

    It will definitely get rid of all the receipts my husband keeps.

  • Kira Avey October 22, 2012, 3:26 PM

    Perfect for those of us on the go! I could have a more organized system without keeping paper receipts!!!

  • Karen K. October 22, 2012, 3:27 PM

    This would be great for the shoebox full of receipts I’m looking at as we speak!! Thanks for the chance.

  • Lisa Brown October 22, 2012, 3:47 PM

    I can keep track of all my husbands work receipts.

  • Keely Hostetter October 22, 2012, 3:55 PM

    I would love to have to help with my “piles”, maybe I can get things organized quicker. Thanks

  • lori hollis October 22, 2012, 4:05 PM

    This would be great place to organize all our reciepts

  • Meggy Hines October 22, 2012, 4:43 PM

    Between my husband working out of town and all of his receipts, to our gym where we teach at-risk teens and those who cannot afford other over-priced mixed martial arts gyms, to my non-profit organization, THIS right there is exactly what I need! I had seen it before and always had that wish… but with no big income, it has been something to add to that forever *wish list*

  • joseph gersch jr October 22, 2012, 4:56 PM

    it can help me from misplacing all my receipts in drawers

  • Lori October 22, 2012, 4:56 PM

    I have been wanting one of these for a long while now. Just haven’t been able to afford it.

  • sylvia manuel October 22, 2012, 5:12 PM

    This would be awesome. I have a tendency to keep receipts. I keep them in a bin and when I cleaned it out last year I found some from 2009. This would be so much better

  • Terri K. October 22, 2012, 6:36 PM

    I run a small home business and this would save me A LOT of storage space both in my file cabinet and on my computer! Having all of my receipts for both home & business all in one program would be a huge time saver in and of itself.

  • Joy October 22, 2012, 7:00 PM

    I keep tons of envelopes labeled with my reciepts shoved inside. This would be so much more efficient!

  • Dwayne H. October 23, 2012, 7:14 AM

    I have seen this organizer and would love to get one, rather than keeping track of everything by hand!

  • Amy Flavin October 23, 2012, 11:08 AM

    I am always losing reciepts so I would love to be able to scan them when I get home from the store and never worry about finding them again!

  • Donna H. October 23, 2012, 12:03 PM

    Would LOVE to win this!

  • bmcalister October 23, 2012, 5:30 PM

    I would love to have this so I can organize all my receipts and important papers! I wanted to buy one when I saw the commercial but, still looking for a job 🙁

  • Katherine October 24, 2012, 6:53 AM

    all the receipts for our small business will be in one compact place

  • Annmarie W. October 29, 2012, 11:12 AM

    This would be SOOOO neat! My hubby is constantly leaving every receipt we get just lying around the house everywhere, and I have a purse full of them! I’m never sure the best way to organize them, and their different sizes certainly make them hard to file away. Having them in one file on the computer would be a godsend!

  • Ashley October 29, 2012, 11:40 AM

    With 2 2 and under I have NO time for organization anymore. This would be a BIG help!

  • Erika Stepp November 11, 2012, 10:04 PM

    Need it!
