Automated Price Matching - Paribus.com
With all the online Christmas shopping going on, the information on this post could save you a good amount of money and it's SUPER easy to do.
Paribus.com is a website that has software that will automatically review the last 30 days of your online shopping (at a bunch of the major online retailers including amazon, walmart, macy's, etc.). Then if they find a price drop, they will submit a claim for you to get reimbursed. They automatically do all the work.
You do have to give them access to your email and amazon account (just like facebook does with all their apps, etc.), so if you are uncomfortable with that, Paribus may not be for you.
I'll have to admit, I was skeptical of Paribus when I first found out about it and I'm still learning about how it works. I actually saw it as an ad on facebook, so of course I was thinking it was spammy.
But I check it out (good ol' google search to see reviews of the company) and decided to give it a try. The very same day I signed up for it, I got paid for 2 claims for a price drop on a couple purchases I made on Amazon.com. The payment showed up as a credit to my amazon account like this:
So far, I've only received reimbursements of just over $7, but that's $7 I wouldn't have received otherwise and there is no work involved.
From their website, this is how it works:
How does Paribus get paid?
They take 25% of the amount that you get reimbursed. They are paid by charging your credit card that they have on file. So you will in effect get paid 75% of all the reimbursements that they make for you. Heck, that's definitely better then getting 0%.
Is there a way to get paid 100% of the reimbursements?
Yes, for every person that you refer, you will be given 5% more of your reimbursements. So if 5 people sign up from your referral, you would then be getting 100% of the reimbursements (5 x 5% = 25%). Your friends will also get 5% off when they sign up with your referral link.
If you sign up with my referral link you Paribus will only be taking 20% of your reimbursements. Trust me, I don't really care if you sign up via my link. If you want, I will post YOUR link on this post to help you get referrals. Just make a comment on this post with your referral link and I'll put up the links in order of when you made the comment....Please just let me know when you have reached the max referrals so that I can put up a new link.
So here is a commenters link:
As soon as someone posts a their link in the comments, I'll put up their link.
It would also be awesome if you could make a comment with your experience with Paribus and tell us how much you have saved by using it. Remember, it will work for the LAST 30 DAYS...so all that online shopping that you have done recently...there's a good chance there has been a price drop on a couple of those items.
