Are Hacks A Bad Idea?
There are many videos and sites that encourage unethical ways to game the system and earn points in Fetch Rewards fast with hacks.
You might want to try using those hacks to get more Fortnite V-bucks but this is a quick way to get banned and not earn anything.
I recommend not trying these because they will get your account shut down and you will be unable to earn gift cards. You can still earn a lot of points by doing the things listed above!
The most common “hack” people use that is on the morally grey ground is scanning receipts that were not their purchase. You might ask your mom, sibling, partner or neighbor to scan their receipts if they don’t use Fetch Rewards. Technically the app can’t tell if these are not yours.
Do not scan receipts that are fake. Fetch Rewards can and will find out and shut down your account. They have increased their ability to detect these and it’s a bad idea to try and game the system.
Just use the app normally and you’ll be surprised how quickly it all adds up.
