That’s when I discovered Paribus. Paribus is a relatively new website/app that helps you save money! (Yes, there’s even an app for that.) I am a huge fan of other apps that help me save some extra cash but what did Paribus offer that the others didn’t? Below you’ll find a short Paribus Review that may help you decide if you want to take the time to download and sign up.
What is Paribus?
Paribus is a new app/website that is designed to help you save money. It is an app joining the ranks of others, like the Walmart Savings Catcher app, that are trying to help consumers save cash. Much like the Savings Catcher, Paribus scans your receipts and gets you cash. The main difference, however, is that Paribus scans your online receipts and you don’t have to lift a finger once you sign up.
How to Sign Up for Paribus
Signing up for Paribus is extremely easy. You can download the app or visit the website to sign up. When creating your account be sure to link your email address that you use when online shopping. If you use more than one email address when online shopping you will have to create more than one Paribus account or forward all your online receipts to one email. You’ll also need to provide your credit card information so Paribus can make deposits to your account.
How Paribus Works
Once you’ve created your Paribus account you can sit back and relax because Paribus does the rest for you. You often see companies claiming that they will price match or that they have the “best available price.” While this may be true, you usually have to go through some extra stress to get that cash back.
By signing up, you give Paribus access to your inbox. The app scans for online shopping receipts. When the price on the items you purchased drops, Paribus uses a bot to get you the extra cash.
How Much Does Paribus Cost?
Signing up for Paribus is free but the company does take a portion of the cash they save you (25 percent). So, if you get $2 back from an Amazon purchase you only receive $1.50 and Paribus will earn $0.50. You can get around this charge during the company’s launch period though. Because Paribus is still so new they are offering a promotional period where if you refer a friend you get 5 percent off their fee. If you refer five friends you’ll be able to bypass the 25 percent fee and get every penny of the cash owed to you (during the promotional period).
What Stores Can You Shop With?
Currently Paribus is tracking receipts from about 20 of the largest online retailers. Paribus is helping customers get money back from sites like Amazon and Best Buy. Here is a handy graphic from the Paribus website showing the stores they work with.
Why I Think You Should Download Paribus
Although Paribus is still relatively new (so there aren’t a ton of testimonies as to how much money it’ll save you), there is a chance you could save some cash by simply downloading the app and signing up. So, why not do it. It will take about a minute of your time and you could start racking up extra savings. I know I can’t wait to see how much Paribus will save me.
