Launched yesterday, One Receipt seems to have most of the important criteria for a successful service. It makes your life simpler and looks good doing it. Ok there are a few more criteria, security, cost and it working well etc… It seems to have those covered, but time will tell (it has the cost thing down – it’s free).
What One Receipt does is keep all your online (and offline via photos) receipts in one place. OneReceipt will automatically look through your email account and create searchable entries for the purchases you’ve made from online retailers from iTunes to Amazon. Instead of seeing the total amounts you spent on your card statements, OneReceipt imports itemized lists. It will also remind you when return policies expire. The really cool thing, and equally most terrifying is that you will be able to see at a glance how much you spend on certain items each month. That may lead to dramatic spending cuts, or further denial tactics. I’m brave enough to try it if you are…
