Keep Your Receipt is a small release by Reel Big Fish in 1997 between their albums Turn the Radio Off and Why Do They Rock So Hard. It includes songs from their two previous releases; the aforementioned Turn the Radio Off and 1995's Everything Sucks, plus a cover of an Operation Ivy song, previously released on a tribute album.

The release also features enhanced CD-ROM content. Specifically, it includes the music videos for the songs "Sell Out" and "Everything Sucks." It also includes a live video of the band playing "Trendy" at a small venue, which is technically the earliest live release by the band. There is also a mini-game called "Play the Axe with Reel Big Fish," during which the user uses their mouse to play horns along with the song "241," although there was also another version of this game included with Launch Magazine issue #23, where "241" was replaced with an instrumental version of "Brand New Song."
