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!
