Andre 3000: Busted by Receipt!

There are so many receipts out there in the world, that every once in while, there are some really great ones. And it’s not uncommon for those receipts to end up on the Internet.

I came across one such receipt this morning.

Turns out there was a waiter who had the rapper Andre 3000 from Outkast come sit in his section. After going out of his way to provide good service to the A-lister, he didn’t leave a tip!

When you follow receipt-related news as closely as I do, you realize how often receipts get people in trouble. In this particular case, this could be a waiter complaining about a bad tip, a story we have all heard before. But when he takes the time to scan the receipt and upload it to the Internet, we can all appreciate it.

From taxes to alibis, Shoeboxed can help.

Going to Taiwan? Keep Your Receipts.

There are plenty of good reasons to save receipts, but in Taiwan, you can actually get paid cold, hard cash for saving receipts you get from retailers.

Forget reimbursements, taxes, budgeting and insurance. I want the cash. So if I ever move to Taiwan, I am definitely going to participate. Here’s how it works:

In order to encourage people to ask for receipts from retailers, all receipts are printed with special number codes. Every so often, the government releases lists of numbers. If they match the ones that you have on your receipts, you can win money.

Big props to Taiwan. I smell a Shoeboxed partnership!

Thanks to Doug Nienhuis for tipping me off!
