Over a year 1/5
It’s been over a year, and I’ve still only made it to $9.50. Not enough products to choose from. #appdeleted
Never get my checks 1/5
I have waited a long time to post a review because at face value I love this app but unlock its competitor Ibotta the follow through or cashing out your rebates is awful. The only reason I am giving them any stars is because their customer service reps themselves are very nice but cannot help very much since all checks are only issued once a month. I have cashed it three times and all three times now my checks have been VERY LATE and I have had to write to customer service for them to be reissued EVERY SINGLE CHECK so I am writing this review after my last email requesting my last pay out. This apps needs to move to the 21st century and use some other form of payment like all of their contemporaries. Disregard the atrocious grammar I am very upset.
I’ve checked the app the offer is available I go buy it and then When I go to file it it’s no longer available
Rebates are very limited as to quantity. 3/5
Every time there’s a rebate that’s good, it’s all gone before you know it’s there. There’s not enough quantity.
Free money, but fix the camera bug 4/5
It’s easy to use. I’ve had the app since 2015 (originally with android, then iOS). Staples like gallons of milk rarely show up anymore. Good for a lot of other common items though.
On Android, the camera scanner was incredibly buggy with reading QR codes and barcodes to the point where I gave up on it. Bought my iPhone 7, worked flawlessly. Now the barcode and QR scanner is buggy and won’t focus anymore. Fix this for five stars.
Not enough diverse offers or they suddenly have zero left 1/5
Why show an offer that has zero redemptions left? And how does an offer run out so quickly, or conveniently right after I left the store? If they wanted to be transparent they could show how many “offers” are left so I could estimate whether I could get home to complete the process in time. I have had this app for a year and am stuck at $7. Because of what many other reviewers are saying: the same 40 products that don’t change and I don’t buy. I do like the updated search/filter function (finally!) but this app is definitely the last deal app I choose when guiding my shopping behavior, which is the point right?
Download iBotta instead 1/5
Those who've said that this app is nearly useless, are exactly right. Unless you constantly buy from a list of the same 20 to 30 processed foods, you won't make any progress. They rarely offer cash back for fresh foods and produce. I've had it for four months, and have only accumulated $6.00 - despite being a regular grocery shopper. As soon as I reach the $20 mark (so that I can withdraw), I'll be deleting this app to make room for something more useful.
Bottom line: go for the iBotta app instead. They're nowhere near as stingy as Checkout51, and they have a huge selection of constantly changing products for which they'll award cash back.
Ready to delete this app 2/5
First it was great, I have yet to do a payout for one I have not reached the $20 min. Second not always products that I purchase or consume regularly. However I was happen that my recent trip to the store would yield two items currently showing, however that was soon deflated when the receipt was denied because it was purchased from a certain list of store that are either not in my area which was the majority of them or that I do not shop at for quality concern reasons. Not appreciating this at all and understand why I typically ignore the reminders from this app. I wish I could payout my $16.25 that is still in and delete the app forever!
Check 51 Rocks!! 5/5
I must say it’s much easier to use then others.It’s so easy to use and I have received over 40 bucks in the mail...very good App...I highly recommend it.
Just starting out, so I’m not going to be too negative just yet. Hopefully I’ll get some feedback and can give a better review. I’ve turned to the help area as to how to turn on notifications. To get to the settings, I have to go under my profile. There is not a person in the upper left corner as the help area instructs. Help!
I use to enjoy this app but when i tryed requesting for the money i had earned nope never recieved it -.- 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼
This rebate app takes a little more time to earn money compared to “the other guy” and less user friendly...In the same amount of time with the 2 apps, this one has made over $20 and the other app has made over $200!!
It’s the same products over and over again 🤦🏽♀️ and those products rarely make it into my cart lol Also it is hard to search for products so you have to scroll through all the rebates(that you'll never redeemed)every time. [**updated app & the search ACTUALLY searches now]
Bottom line.....There are coins to be made so yep 🤷🏽♀️ Get Money!
Good ish 3/5
This app is good but I buy mostly vegan and fresh fruits and veggies so there are not slot of savings that pertain to me.
Rebate Issue 2/5
Not happy that you have to wait 15-30 days to receive rebate check.
Just cashed out 2/5
I just cashed out. It took me SO long to reach 20$!! I thought I was able to cash out with paypal but I had to fill out a form to have a check mailed to me. Horrible! Products in the app are only available at some stores. Not all the stores that participate with this app are in my state even. With each store trip I had anywhere from 0.50-2.00$ for this app. 2.00+ on rare occasions! I shop A LOT and it took me about 2-3 months to check out. I’m now deleting this app over no paypal option. Getting a check for 20$ isn’t worth it to me. My experience and opinion. It might be worth it to others to keep the app for 6 months- a year to rack up then get a check.
Better Apps Out There 2/5
Had this app for 3 weeks and only made it up to $1.50 in savings.. the items are too random and specific and not worth a lot of money
Missing one thing 3/5
I would like the ability to scan a product barcode in store to see if it qualifies for the rebate offer I view on the app
Keeps Freezing 2/5
The app used to work just fine. Now, since the newest update, it keeps freezing and crashing on my iPhone SE. Unusable for the time being.
By 007 Waccamaw
I love, love, love this app. My sister and I use it at every opportunity. Thank you for putting extra money in our pockets.
Pretty happy! 4/5
A friend told me about this app and I’m already up to 6$, pretty simple, I don’t use any other apps like Ibotta, so I don’t run into any conflicts.
None remaining 1/5
I used to love this app but I think they have too many users now. All the good items show "0 remaining" before I can get my shopping done. Very disappointed.
Too time consuming 2/5
Having to scroll through every product offered and search your shopping list for matches then find out it only applies to a couple of specific stores is not good. Other apps like Fetch will scan and identify the products for you. I will use it until I get enough to redeem then delete it.
0 remaining!!! What a joke😞 3/5
I haven’t been able to do any rebates lately. Most of the rebates have 0 Remaining, even on the first day that they post them, which is really strange. I’m gonna cash out on whatever I have, and then I’m gonna delete it.
Good apps...!!! 5/5
Wonderful apps... helpful...!!!
It’s just okay 2/5
Yes, I do enjoy occasionally being able to save a dollar or 2, but sometimes I do get pretty frustrated with this app. The products seem to hardly ever change and there ends up being products that, in my opinion, people don’t really ever buy or use. On top of that, common things like Advil, Tylenol, bandaids, or even paper towels and toilet paper can only be bought at sams club or dollar general. Not saying it’s all the time, but more often than not for the first 3 things I mentioned. About the products hardly ever changing, I’m specifically talking about the beverages, home and personal care items. I think I’ve been using this for about a year, and the same or almost the same lotions, perfume gift sets, beer, wine, etc. are always on there. It’s almost like they purposely put things on here that people don’t buy! And yes, I have emailed about this a few times and they change things for about one week and then it goes back to the same. Because of this, it takes FOREVER to even reach $20. In the year that I’ve been using this, I can only remember getting 1, maybe 2 checks.
No longer on my phone 2/5
I am a stay at home parent and I have tried this app twice in the past two years. Once again I am removing it from my phone due to the lack of payouts. The issues that I have found is that you have to purchase multiples of the items and being a lower income family this simply doesn’t work for us. Also the issues of rebates being available before I go into the store yet when I get home they are no longer available or I cannot redeemed them at all because while they are listed they do not apply to any of the stores nearby which the stores are listed in the fine print. I know that the rebates are limited and issued by the manufacturer but you have my information can’t your I.T. team create a program that at least separates offers by state or at least regionally (we don’t have Piggly Wiggles in Utah)? Also the lack of items that not processed and have more fresh options (think perimeter shopping). Also the redemption of the receipt, which has improved greatly since I first started using this app, still needs some work. I have purchased items and not gotten credit because my receipt was slightly crinkled or even though I purchased the items since they were not clearly stated on the receipt I did not get credit. May I suggest pairing with the retailers that you already have and working together and using a system for qr codes that they have on their receipts so that everything that can go towards a rebate is given and that even rebates that haven been checked by individuals are still given credit for? I think that the app would benefit from some of those things and if the upgrades were made not only would I return but I would also tell everyone that I know about it and being a mom of a little human and having lots of mom friends I can see this app becoming more popular than others available at this time.
Don’t waste your time. Use Ibotta instead. 1/5
Every single week i turn in a receipt and I am told I don’t meet the requirements. This is the worst app I have ever used and I will be deleting it promptly. I suggest Ibotta if you want a well made, easy to use saving app. I’m very dissatisfied with saving star and I will be deleting it.
By Comfortably numb4321123
I do not have a bank account. I cash my checks at stores. Requested my check 44.68 🙂 check arrived hurray thinking this is a great app. When I tried to cash the check with my payroll check. no one would accept the check. Tried 3 stores that boast they Cash checks. Still no. Very aggravated threw check in my glove box and that's where it will stay. It's really a good little cash boost but if you have no bank account a waste of time. # littledisappointed
Great app 5/5
By Anne Dee 1
I love this app!!
Getting paid to shop! 5/5
By Mumma Saver
This app is great. It’s easy to use and I’m surprised how fast money accumulates. I find they offer rebates on products I’m already purchasing. Easy to submit my receipts and collect money. Big family and we appreciate every dollar we save!
It’s okay 2/5
Would prefer to transfer savings to PayPal or an Amazon card instead of waiting for a check.
Slightly more user friendly now with search and filter options.
Yet, now there are less savings options, as others have stated, it seems to disallow rebates for items that are available or used on other savings apps.
By Ash holl
So far I like this app with there were more products to choose from there are a lot I do not use but the concept is great
Camera issues 1/5
It pulls up the camera only every few times and I tried to fix a mix up and it won’t load up the camera and if it does I can’t continue the image on the next one like prompted.
Not much good offers 1/5
I check app weekly but I don’t see the food I buy in the store...
Sad amount of offers 1/5
I had this app on my phone for a very long time, the problem is it's more of a hassle trying to find an offer that's relevant to me, or even the stores in my area, some are just Walmart or a certain store only, go with ibotta and save yourself the trouble.
Love the app. Hate the refund process. 5/5
CK51 needs to step it’s game up on the money return process. Waiting 25 days for your $20 dollars is a stretch. Why not just do PayPal like every other app out there; Ibotta, SavingStar and even MobiSave. Other then that, I don’t mind using the app to save some cash.
Functions but not useful 1/5
***Update*** finally accumulated enough rebates to cash out and delete the app. Had to wait 2.5 weeks for them to mail a check. DELETED the app.
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 $$$$$$ in processed junk.
Easy to use, slow receiving cash out 4/5
I have enjoyed CheckOut51. I’ve reached a cash out but it takes forever to receive the mailed check. I love the rebates they offer and enjoy using them. I only with they had a barcode search feature and a quicker cash out (maybe to PayPal or similar). Thanks for offering a way to rebate. 😊
Used to be a great app 3/5
I used to use it weekly to at least get the produce rebate. Now you can’t get that unless you redeem a certain # or value of other rebates. Of course the other rebates I’m interested in are for stores that are NOT in my geographical area - or - exclude certain stores like BJs (which I shop at frequently).
Used to love this app. Hate it now and plan on deleting. Where shall I start. Coupon police with disappearing offers and then blame it on the manufacturers. Junk offerings, and I hate the format now. I either have to scroll through every offering in a long list or click back and forth in the filter. And the list goes on.
Simple to use 5/5
Very simple to use, I just recently started using it and it’s been great! Would recommend to everyone
Never received my cash back 1/5
I have inquired about the whereabouts of my cashback check 3 times now. Each customer service rep keep indicating the check has been sent out and the previous one voided blah blah blah. Needless to say I have yet to receive my cash back. Keep the check, I won’t be using this ever again.
Great way to make some extra cash 5/5
Love this app! Easy way to earn a little $$ from stuff you already buy!
Ibotta is better 2/5
This app is a nice idea and gives cash back for items that is not on Ibotta however it doesn’t divide the rebates up by store. I made a purchase based off the list but then it was denied because it was supposed to be at a store that I don’t even have in my town. I’m deleting the app and sticking with Ibotta
Checkout 51 5/5
By brenda galvan
I love this app. What can be better than shopping and getting money back
Enjoy the offers and the ease 5/5
Easy to check offers and upload. And very quick processing times. This has been a great way to earn a few extra dollars.
Saves me money ! 5/5
Love this app ! Super easy to use and saves me money ! I think more about what I’m buying and how I’m spending
Just ok 2/5
My big issue is that a lot of the products i buy and they offer on the app I cannot redeem because are available at stores from other states. :)) the closest Ralphs store is 1650.72 miles away...
I understand why they don't want us to redeem products on multiple apps I just don't agree with it.
I wish they had more brands...
I like it 5/5
I could do with a better search option, but I love this app
