One star is too generous 1/5
I cannot begin to emphasize how painful c51 is to work with. If you want to submit all receipts at least twice and have half of them rejected for arbitrary reasons, this is the app for for. Over 90% of my submissions experienced some issue. I hope they're in business long enough for me to reach $20 in savings although I question weekly why I continue to try.
Frozen Section 3/5
By Rustic Coconut
This app freezes and then my iPhone freezes up and I have restart my phone .
Nice savings! 5/5
I love Checkout 51! It’s so nice that I don’t have to cut out coupons. The best part is I can keep building up my savings until I’m ready to cash it out. It’s a nice little check to have around the holidays!
Good app. 5/5
It does help, to get your coupons in cash payment. Much appreciated.
Worst of it’s kind 1/5
I thought this would be ok for a couple bucks here and there. The quality and diversity of the products is much lower than similar apps. The $30 threshold is ridiculous. My main problem is the disappearing offers... I’ve had multiple times where I looked at the offers right before going to the store, just to have them say ”0” available a short while later when I get back home and want to redeem. Of course, 51 will take no responsibility for it while they pass the blame on product manufacturers. I would ask, why don’t any of the other big rebate apps get these unicorn “weekly quotas”??? And what ever you do... don’t complain to them. Nicely voiced my frustration about the disappearing rebates.... got a canned response that had nothing to do with what I was asking about. Then, found out my account was suspended from redeeming. Screw these guys!
This is the worst app. ! Don’t bother 1/5
This app. is not friendly, too many hoops to jump through, slow to approve or let me say disapprove your receipts. IBOTTA is the best coupon app. EVER! This one doesn’t even compare. Don’t waste your phone space.
Me encanta porque le devuelve de lo que uno a gastado 5/5
Good results! 5/5
I have only been using the app for a few weeks and after I figured out how to use it, I love it! It’s nice to be able to get money back on products I use!
Waste of time 1/5
Majority of items need to be purchased at grocery stores that are not in my city, which is not stated in the app so it has been a total waste of time.
Unclaimed Items 1/5
I installed this thinking this would be like Ibotta but it’s nothing compared to Ibotta. I had items that were on here and when I finished choosing the same items of what was on my receipt, Checkout 51 said they couldn’t process it and it would be unclaimed. What kind of BS is that? I’m sorry, Ibotta is way better and i will be deleting this APP.
Takes too long to get to the cash out! 1/5
By Rutan Kid
At the urging of my daughter-in-law, I downloaded the app. Because I don't use most of the products featured, it took me over two years to get to the point where I could cash in for the $20. As soon as I cashed out, I deleted the app. It was not worth my time to continue.
I try to used the app found it hard to find the things on sale 1/5
By Trucker jack
As I am on sad it hard to find things on sale as it takes lots of money to buy things on the app
Waste of time 1/5
I can’t find good rebates, they eliminated rebates for fresh produce and now they bait you with coupons that you actually can’t use. It’s very dishonest.
By La Hija
The app keeps crashing every time you upload your receipt. Also needs more variety in healthy choices. There's so much junk food that I'll never buy. Just waiting to reach the next $20 threshold so I can delete this thing!
I loved checkout51 5/5
Checkout51 is real, easy to use no ads or what so ever that ruins while your using it. I would love to recommend it to my friends👍😇😊 they just email my first check ever thank you Checkout51,keep it up.
The best CheckOut51 5/5
anything small make you happy!!! Thank you very much CheckOut51 you are awesome
More Familiar Brands Needed 3/5
I like using this app but many of the products that offer the cash back I have never heard of or they are not available in my area.
Wish they could offer more name brand items that are available in my area. Or cash back on general items such as any brand of bread or any brand of milk etc. I like the offers where you just have to submit a receipt to earn cash back.
Needs PayPal or venmo 1/5
When will you add PayPal or venmo. Waiting a month for a check is ridiculous
Don’t bother just use Ibotta instead or paper coupons 1/5
I used to enjoy reading blog posts from Krazy Koupon Lady that described essentially how to combine coupons with offers on here to try out new products - and sometimes get paid to do so in the process.
95% of the offers now don’t let you use a coupon or redeem another offer on another app. This company is gonna realize this is a big mistake. Enough people buy things without using any coupons that it shouldn’t be a big deal to Procter & Gamble if someone on here uses a $1 coupon and a $1 offer on here on a $4 tube of toothpaste.
I hope this company goes out of business or otherwise ceases operations.
No internet connection error. 2/5
Constantly getting “no internet connection “ error. Even after reinstalling. I had a few redemptions now the app is hosed. Shadey shadey
Love it 5/5
This app is easy to use and who doesn't love to get extra money back after shopping🎉🎉
Not happy 1/5
Just so much worse than Ibotta
TWO THUMBS DOWN FOR CHECKOUT 51 1/5
Once I get to $20 I’m cashing out and DELETING THIS APP FROM MY PHONE! This app used to be good for rebates, not so much anymore. It’s ridiculous that I can’t get rebates from Publix...!? And why do we have to buy processed foods in order to unlock healthy offers??? Why can’t we buy fruit/veggies like before? I used to recommend Checkout 51 to friends/family...not anymore!
Doesn't work 1/5
Constantly crashes every 30 seconds
I used to like checkout 51? 1/5
Now more snd more 51 has made it hard to get money back. Now that they put the certain retailer on the savings I would waste more money in gas going to the certain retailer than I would make in cash back. I live in New Jersey and we don’t have most of the stores in this state.
An Extra Perk 4/5
By Coupon Crisy
I have had checkout 51 for a couple years now. I have tried other apps but I have found this app to he the most user friendly. The 1st year I joined it was a short couple months and I received my first rebate check! Now I find less and less items I would buy or have even heard of. I had a problem with not receiving credit for an item, just a couple months ago. I wrote to the company and shared my proof of purchase again and they responded right away and apologized for their mistake! I have to give a company like that credit for their prompt response and willingness to admit & correct. I really like this app but wish there was more everyday items to be redeemed!!
By Roy in KOP
If only this app loads fast like other rebate apps, then maybe more people would use it. And if this company gives your money back not via checks, that takes forever to arrive, but instead uses paypal, then Im sure it will compete with ibotta.
At first loved it, now rarely get a rebate. 2/5
This was app closely ran neck to neck with Ibotta but in past few months they have decreased the selections or make it impossible to claim. Several times I’ve used a coupon for an item and it states I already received a discount. I use coupons all the time with Ibotta and never had a rejection because of a coupon. I find when I select the store I’m shopping it populates brands the store doesn’t carry or fine print states rebate is only for another store chain. Very disappointed on how it’s turning into useless space on my phone.
Great Ap 5/5
By Gma violet
I have had a great time working with this group of people
Quick response time and very helpful with answers
Love to get money back on products I buy on a weekly basis
Keep up the good work
Checkout 52 5/5
By Happy Cheryl
Great way to earn extra money. Love this app!!!
Functions but not useful 1/5
So they’ve updated the app, but still don’t feature much in the way of quality items. Processed foods, toxic chemical household products, etc. I’d love to cash out and delete this app, but it takes a minimum of $20 to do this.
If you live a healthy lifestyle, don’t bother with this app. I haven’t even seen real food on here in weeks.
The app functions well enough but the features aren't useful, unless you're into buying crap.
In order to unlock produce and other truly heathy items, you have to redeem $$$$$$ in processed junk.
Used to be much better 3/5
By A saddened user
I've saved a good bit on this app in the past, but now two things have negatively changed- (1) its hyper-monitoring of your activity on other apps. I can no longer even mark, let alone redeem certain products on other apps without getting a "claimed limit" notification on the C51 app. I believe this to be a foolish move on the part of the app developers. (2) the fresh offers being less in value, and you having to spend a certain amount the previous week to "earn" the right to redeem more-- what??
Used to be much better 1/5
This used to be a great app! Now it is much too complicated. There are too many offers that say “only good at this store” and “may not use a coupon with this offer”. I used to redeem offers all the time, now hardly any.
Great deals 5/5
By Jammin granny
Shop 51 get great deals
More updates would be awesome!!! 4/5
By saucy no 1
This app is great. I have used it for over a year. I havent made as much money as other apps (I have about 15 apps). I have 4 favorites. One of the things that make those superior is they update weekly/bi-weekly. They also make the old ones that we cant use any longer disappear. I would like to see those disappear so we can see what we can actually get rebates back on. I have got quite a bit of money back and have learned to tell the difference but new users could get confused.
Lets make this easy if you haven’t/ don’t want to read the whole thing:
Works at most big stores
Food and house hold items
Needs more updates
Needs to delete old/inactive rebates
I hope this really helps a lot of you :)
Used to be great, but now.... 2/5
By Dollar Billy 2
I faithfully used this app for years but lately most of the offers are for high-dollar organic and specialty products which aren't in my budget. And who buys batteries at Rite Aid? They're way cheaper at Walmart even when you figure in the C51 rebate. And brands and stores I've never heard of. Sorry guys but my relationship with this app is not long for this world.
I wish I could have found this site sooner love it 💯❤️Now that I have been using it more I’m making about $100.00 a month and that’s just for my husband and I on things I’m going to get anyways and the review about not liking produce I unlocked it last week and bought 3 items and it unlocked 10 for this week so I think it works well. ❤️❤️I want to get bigger varieties and the purchase from any store not just set stores.
This having to buy products at a certain store is ridiculous. Not any more. Bye bye. 1/5
By certain stores only
To time consuming!
I'm deleting this app.. Waste of space on my phone! 1/5
Once upon a time this app used to have deals on things people actually buy! Not anymore.. I have been skimming through it for months and haven't claimed any deals at all cuz all the options are some overpriced brands I never get so they're not even worth the saving! I'm sticking to ibotta!
I love using this app, who knew you could get so much back.
Just waiting to delete... 1/5
I’ve had this app for a few years. If you don’t eat a lot of processed food, it always took a long time to earn savings on this app, but it’s ridiculous now. No fruit or veg rebates unless you’ve bought a ton of junk food to unlock them first. Basic healthy staples earn nothing. I’ve earned only 10 cents in the past six months because you get nothing if you want to eat well. I had taken a long time (over a year and a half) to build up $15 (most of it happened before this app got super stingy), and at this point, I’m hoping to just somehow build up to the $20 I need to cash out so I can just delete this stupid app. Go to Ibotta if you want to earn savings.
Neg reviews changed my mind 5/5
I wanted to download this app but there are enough neg reviews expressing very similar issues . Who wants to use an app that creates frustration.
Need improvement 5/5
Was great when I first started using now it's not so great
Waste of time 1/5
Saving money with this app has become way more work than its worth. Almost guarantee they will go out of business before long. Ibotta is better.
Not great 2/5
At the beginning, I thought this app will be great. Then I started to use it, it gave me different and amazing offers, but after couple weeks, I found that the products which I used to buy are no longer appear, each week the app give me just useless offers. ibotta compares to Check 51, is amazing, it gives me the offer that I use to redeem almost each week, and I collected about 60$ with it, compared to just 28$ with Check 51.
Used to love this app, not anymore. There’s the same crap every week and you have to redeem so much to unlock healthy items. Everyone wonders why America is obese, because unhealthy food is cheaper than healthy food and you can’t get coupons or rebates for healthy food. I like Ibotta much better.
I like most of the app. Sometimes I wish the offers would change a little bit more and have more variety. I also wish I didn’t have to have a check mailed and it would it could work with PayPal.
Love this app 5/5
I pull it up every time I go to the store.
Time consuming 2/5
It takes a lot of time to scroll through the offers. When they add new offers everything you chose is gone so you have to do it again! Not sure it’s worth the time. They need to take lessons from Ibotta, which is awesome!!!
Buying products 1/5
By How now brown cow?
I’m deleting this app. It only gives you credit for the products they display. I’ve had this for a long time and haven’t even been able to collect a $. I don’t shop Target and some other retail stores so all this app does is take up room on my phone. Just doesn’t do it for me.
