I’m pretty stoked about Paribus. There was a time (long, long…long ago) when the only type of shopping I did was the kind that made me get off my butt, get in the car and drive to the mall. Buuuuut, shopping in store looses it’s magic when your toddler is escaping you every 5 minutes and knocking down all the maniquins. So, I’m an exclusive online shopper now. And, I have to say, I find way more deals online then I ever did at retail. Especially with all of the cashback opportunities!
OH, HI PARIBUS
I actually just learned about Paribus a couple of weeks ago. I was approached by them to create an affiliate partnership (hence the handy-dandy FTC required legal disclaimer up top) and after checking them out, decided it I wanted to team up.
There are lots of cashback sites out there. But, what I liked about Paribus is that it works to get you cashback after the sale is complete.
Have you ever purchased something and a couple of days later seen the exact same item sold by the exact same retailer on sale for $10 bucks less than what you paid for it? Um, yeah. That sucks. And, what most of us don’t do is take advantage of the retailer’s policies, which many times offer you the cashback (or difference) you paid if you bring in your receipt.
I for one have NEVER done it despite knowing I can get my money back. Why? Because it’s a pain in the you-know-what to try to get that refund and I have a million and one other things on my to do list.
PARIBUS GETS THAT MONEY FOR YOU
They will work with the retailers (probably many that you already shop at, like Target, Kohls, GAP, Walmart, Old Navy, Amazon, Overstock, Best Buy, Nordstrom, etc.) and get that money back in your pocket. Cha-ching!
It’s actually super easy. Like, there is nothing you have to do except sign up and shop like you normally would. You create an account (here). You connect your email account and they stalk your receipts and look for price drops on items you purchase.
It sounds a little creepy. And, I was a little skeptical myself at first if I’m being honest. But, they have super strict security measures and policies and, well in this day and age, I feel like it’s pretty easy for anyone to get your info (I feel like I’m getting data security breach updates every other day from standard places I shop like the grocery store!). That’s my opinion though. Obviously, you need to decide for yourself if Paribus is for you!
HOW DO I GET MY CASHBACK?
If they find that you are eligible for a price adjustment, the file on your behalf with the retailer, take a commission (I mean, they have to make some money outta the deal, right?) and deliver that money to 3-7 days. How you receive the refund depends upon the retailer, either cash or store credit.
It seems pretty awesome. Oh, and I forgot to mention that they have an ap you can download to your phone to track your cashback from there or you can do everything from your desktop. And, of course, you can delete your account anytime if you’re not happy with it!
I think that covers it. Let me know how it works out for you! I’d love to know how much money people are getting back by using Paribus. Yippee!
