Save Money Automatically Online (My Paribus Review)
Stores Owe You Money For Your Christmas Shopping Spree!
Do you ever buy anything to then later find that the price had dropped after your purchase? Frustrating right!? We’ve written about how to get Price Adjustments from Amazon when this happens, but this app will do all the work for you, for FREE!
About a month ago a friend invited me to try Paribus. He knows I’m an avid bargain shopper AND an avid online shopper, so this new app is the PERFECT fit! WHY? I get so annoyed when I buy something online only to find that within a few days, a week, or even a month later the price drops.
You can get money back in your pocket when the price drops on something you purchased in the last 30-90 days… effortlessly! If you shop at Amazon, OldNavy.com, Walmart.com, Target.com, Newegg.com, or Macys.com and several other online stores (see below) then THIS APP IS FOR YOU!
To learn more, continue reading for my full and honest Paribus review! I’ll even show you a screenshot of a refund Paribus secured for me!
How Does Paribus Work?
Once you’ve signed up (learn how to sign up below), Paribus will start working in the background. Here’s how Paribus works:
- Paribus finds your receipts (based on the accounts you link to it) and monitors the price.
- If the price drops, Paribus negotiates for a refund
Paribus monitors 25+ online retailers so there are a lot of opportunities for refunds! They’ll even monitor any hotel bookings you make online to find cheaper options.
Along with price drops, Paribus also monitors for late deliveries. For example, if Amazon states that a package will get to your house on a certain date and it arrives a day late, Paribus will make sure you get compensated.
Some other important information:
- Paribus is TOTALLY automated…think of it as a “plug and play” app. Set it and then forget about it!
- There are no out of pocket expenses… Paribus is 100% free to use.
How Does Paribus Make Money?
Good question! Since Paribus partnered with Capital One in 2017 it has been completely FREE to use. If they find you a refund, you get to keep 100% of it.
Why would they not want to make any money off of this? Well, because it’s great marketing for Capital One! As you use Paribus, you may be inclined to use other Capital One services as well.
How to Start Using Paribus
Getting started with Paribus is really simple, here’s how you can start getting refunded in two steps:
- Sign up for Paribus here.
- Link your accounts when prompted
That’s really all you have to do! Once your account is linked you can sit back and relax.
Note: Be sure you link it to the email address that you use mostly for online shopping… that’s how Paribus will scan your receipts from any of their participating merchants (it found all of my Amazon and Old Navy purchases).
Paribus Was Featured on NBC News
Lester Holt with NBC Nightly News told a story about one family in Texas that has saved over $400 with Paribus and is putting every dollar toward their young daughter’s college fund.
It’s a great story that explains in depth how Paribus works. You can view it HERE.
Here’s an example of one of the refunds I’ve received:
I love that it does ALL THE WORK FOR ME! I can sit back and enjoy my family while Paribus gets me some of my money back!
Once Amazon okays the refund, tada. you are getting some moola back! I have seen the refunds come back either to my original payment method or as an Amazon gift card!
Note: Unfortunately Amazon changed their price drop policy so Paribus can only monitor for late deliveries on Amazon now.
Do you shop online with any of these stores?
As I mentioned above, Paribus monitors over 25 different stores for price drops and late deliveries. Here’s just a small example of some of the stores Paribus monitors:
You may feel leery about linking your email to the Paribus app. Here’s why I decided I was cool with it…
- They need to do this so they can file for price adjustments on your behalf… the claims need to come from the email address that you have linked to your online shopping accounts.
- Security is a BIG DEAL to Paribus. Check out all these levels of security they use to keep your information secure:
Final Thoughts on Paribus
At first, I was hesitant to link my accounts (namely my email, Amazon, and credit card) in order to use the service. But after reading all over their website I felt better about it. The security is top notch and I LOVE the service!
If something can put more money into my pocket while I go about my day to day life, without having to worry about it, I’m all for it! It just feels good knowing that I don’t have to worry about purchasing something only to have the price drop within the next few days.
So, my verdict for this Paribus review? I really love it! It’s a great little tool for easy savings and it’s completely free to use, so there isn’t much to complain about.
You can create a new email account and use it just for your online shopping and link this account to your Paribus account. All future purchases will be scanned and for up to 90 days after you make the purchase, Paribus will be working on getting you MONEY BACK if the price drops!
