Feeling overwhelmed by how complicated it is to keep track of all your expenses? Whether you’re a freelancer, small business owner, or just someone trying to organize your life better, it’s probably the small, routine expenses like Lyft fares which make life complicated for you. If this rings true, you can benefit from getting a receipt scanner and management app.

Forward Your Receipts Automatically

If you’re a regular Lyft customer, you only have to forward your receipts to a receipt scanning app to add them to your financial records. The app will read the receipt and input your information by itself so you can focus on the sweeter things in life. Just choose an app like SparkReceipt that supports auto-forwarding and auto-scanning via email.

Sign up for SparkReceipt and Identify Your Unique Email Address

Find your unique forwarding address in SparkReceipt

Your personal forwarding address can be found from “Email Documents” option in the app’s main menu.

To forward emails to SparkReceipt, first identify your unique forwarding address in the app under “Email Documents” in the main menu. Save this address to your email contacts for easy access. When you receive a receipt from Lyft, just forward it to this address. SparkReceipt will process the receipt, whether it’s an attachment or embedded in the email, and you’ll receive a confirmation email once the receipt is successfully scanned and added to your account.

You can also change this email to your settings in Lyft, and have all receipts sent automatically to SparkReceipt for efficient expense tracking.
