SmartScan digital or emailed receipts by emailing them to [email protected]

SmartScan runs in the background, so there’s no need to keep the app open. Most SmartScans complete within one hour, but it can take a bit longerso don't worry! If we need more information from you, you’ll get a message from Concierge letting you know!
