Are you pinching pennies to feed your family? Are you loyal to certain food and household brands? Are you excited by apps that help you earn cash back?
Then signing up on Checkout 51 may be a nice side egg for you.
What Exactly is Checkout 51?
Founded in Toronto, Canada by three entrepreneurs with experience in technology, media, and advertising, Checkout 51 continues to grow in staff and brand name products. Similar to another app, Ibotta, Checkout 51 is also web-based. United States, the District of Columbia, overseas US military bases, and Canada (excluding Quebec) may all participate in this.
How Does Checkout 51 Work?
Every Thursday morning, new product offers are posted. Here is what you do:
- Browse the offers for what you want to buy.
- Purchase the offers from any of your favorite stores.
- Upload your receipt using Checkout 51 and their photo taking tips.
- Your receipt will be confirmed.
- Your account will be credited.
- Once your account reaches $20 you will receive payment via check.
Even though the directions are fairly easy to follow and remember, a few things to keep in mind are:
- The receipt must be in English.
- Only one receipt per person.
- The same receipt may only be uploaded once.
- The product must be the EXACT product in the offer.
While you are allowed to shop at any store to get the product, it must be the exact product. In other words, if the offer was for SnackWell cookies 3.9 oz. or higher and you only bought a 2.4 oz. box then you would not get credit for it.
How Does Checkout 51 Help Businesses?
Stores are always looking for good customers and brand loyalty, and Checkout 51 can help build both. Checkout 51 also partners with food packaging companies and product brand companies to help them with building awareness of their products.
How Does Checkout 51 Pay and When is Payday?
Checkout 51 basically pays every time that you reach $20 in cash backs. They pay by check. It does not appear that they have incorporated PayPal yet, but I think that may change in the near future.
What Do I Think of Checkout 51?
I think it looks like a great app to use. I have experimented with Ibotta, but not Checkout 51. The photo taking guides as well as the Help Desk really adds to the integrity and credibility of this app.
What Do Others Think of Checkout 51?
Well, others seem to sing its praises. It is not a scam and fun to use. A few users did complain that occasionally the receipt does not always upload completely, but other than that many good reviews if you want to Google them.
Checkout 51 also has a presence on Facebook and Twitter.
How Can I Download Checkout 51 and Get Started?
You can go to their website and decide between signing up on your laptop or Android or iOS device. Just make certain that your iOS is at least 6.0 or higher. It goes without saying that before you can create your account–if you haven’t done so already– you will need to download either Google Play for Android or iTunes for the iPhone’s download.
Again because Checkout 51 is also web-based, you can sign up with your email account or Facebook account. Either one will need to be verified once before you complete your account.
Good luck and go shopping!
