Great App 4/5
This app is great! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I wish I didn't have to wait til I have $20 to cash out and I wish that instead of having to wait for a check in the mail, they would deposit into my PayPal account.
Good App But Sad Changes 2/5
I have not been happy with the selection of items you have lately. I am very unhappy about the change to produce rebates. Won't be using much longer unless better selections are made available.
Almost useless now 1/5
I used to enjoy using Checkout51. Not anymore. They are being really aggressive now in the measures they take to make sure you don't "double dip" savings on the same product across apps. I'm not talking about when you try to claim an offer with Checkout51 AFTER you've claimed it on another app like ibotta -- I'm talking about even when you activate an offer on ibotta and if it features the same product for a similar offer in Checkout51, Checkout51 will deny you access to that offer by labeling it with a "claimed limit" stamp -- BEFORE you even buy the product or claim the offer on the other app or any app. How ridiculous is that?! In response to your inquiry they will claim it's all manufacturer's decision blah blah. Yes blame it all on the manufacturers. I find that hardly convincing. Another recent change for the bad Checkout51 has adopted is locking up the 25cents fresh produce offers. You'll have to meet a certain saving $ threshold to unlock those offers for the NEXT week. In the past when I rarely found anything interesting on their long rebate offer list, the only reason I kept the app was that at least I could still save a couple of dimes on bananas or lettuce etc no matter where I bought them. With this any brand produce offer going away on top of the new intrusive restrictions on savings I will most likely be deleting this app very soon.
Barely worth while 1/5
I've been a member of checkout 51 for a couple years now. It's quite clear watching the trend over that time that the app is only about maximizing its corporate affiliates rather than giving worth while coupons/savings for everyday items to its users. The coupons don't really change week to week and they are always for items that are quite expensive to buy in the first place. The app used to have everyday items like fruits and veggies but in the past year it really has taken a turn for the worse. I'm not at all impressed with this app anymore.
Cashed out for the first time today, and I have to wait 15-30 days for them to send a check?! Why not get with PayPal and make it easier on both of us? Ibotta cashes you out in seconds!
Will I ever receive a valid check? 1/5
Not impressed with this company at all. I cashed out my rebate check for 69.90 back on July 12th. A month and some odd days later go by and I still haven't received the check. I contact you guys and the original check gets canceled and you issue a new one. (yay) I finally receive a check and of course it's the original (that has been canceled and if I cash will incur fees) so now we're at 09/19/2017.. and still no check. I'm beginning to regret even signing up and using your bogus app. I'll stick to IBOTTA, at least they actually give you your money. If I could give zero stars, I would.
Good savings BAD coupon choices 2/5
By famous music
So far every once in a while i get coupons for kale or veggies but they are only 1 coupon per week out of the other unhealthy sugary filled items with coupons. This app is not the best coupon source for healthy choices. How r u gonna tell me to get kale for ¢10 while pop-tarts are $1. Now i see what the app is really doing. Forcing people to buy unhealthy food. So i don't bother with the app anymore
Ibotta is much better! 1/5
The one rebate I thought I actually qualified apparently didn't work bc it wasn't one of the 25 grocery stores listed - it was bought at Kroger which is a pretty big chain. We have made a lot of money with ibotta and nothing with checkout 51!
Needs more options... 1/5
This app definitely needs an option to cash out funds to Venmo or PayPal. I don't get it I have read in the terms that it's an option of receiving your money but I don't see any other way but old fashioned paper check by snail mail. Also with the new update a lot of the most common items went away like bread, milk, produce and was replaced with some weird brands I can't find in any stores. WTH?!? Also when I can actually use a rebate and I try to scan the barcode after it says it's verified it then tells me I haven't selected an item to claim. Obviously I did since I scanned the barcode and you verified it. This app is such a joke. There are other rebate apps out there that are easier and user friendly.
Not worth the effort 1/5
I used to be able to build up some money by using the offers for stuff that I actually buy, like produce or dairy, but now the produce is "locked" until you buy some of the other useless stuff the week before. And one purchase that did qualify ended up being rejected because I didn't buy it at the right store. None of the stores listed are in my area. Waste of time and effort.
Cash back savings? --- what a joke! 1/5
First of all, make sure you take an hour or two to go through and read the fine print for what they'll accept or not. Only certain products are accepted at certain stores. And if you're like me you don't have time to sort through all of this just to get a little savings. Also, most of the savings are on pantry "junk." How about some more veggies? Oh wait, you have to unlock things to get savings on healthy stuff. What a skewed agenda! This app has been a total waste of time and I'm just very disappointed. There are way better apps for potential savings.
Happy redeemer! 5/5
By Happy Redeemer
Great app! Please give us more offers to redeem! Love this app!
Wonderful app until last update 1/5
By Nh red
It was a wonderful app until the last update. Now it crashes every time I try to take a picture to upload my receipt.. There is no contact us button. Will not go into until this fixed!!!!!
Don't waste your time 1/5
By ditchdoc 21
It took me a long time to build up rewards. 6 months for $24. I also had to contact customer services about several redemptions offers and they would not honor them, there are better apps to earn rewards faster. Also can't search for specific items. I wouldn't recommend it.
By Death spiral
0 stars. Horrible app that's difficult and time consuming to use with the crappiest rebates. Do yourself a favor by saving space on your phone and not downloading
Big brother alert 1/5
By Dr Ladybug
Useless app. Blocks offers that are duplicated in other apps (big brother). Half of my offers are for stores not even in my state. Why does it big brother for content but not location?
Another update: Do not be deceived by developer response: this app will BLOCK some duplicate offers for products offered in other apps!! Defeats purpose of saving $ AND acts as Big Brother. No thank you!
Update: Deleting this app; it not only tells you that some offers cannot be used with any other coupons or discounts but also actually makes offers completely unavailable that are duplicated in other apps! This is in no way a manufacturer decision; otherwise, the discounts would be merely reduced or not offered at all. No thanks; too big brother for me.
Review from 2014: Yea, another shopping app, but it is DIFFICULT to use. *Twice*, I have had a legitimate purchase rejected. Once I can kind of see, but the second time for the same product tells me they do NOT have a “learning database” to correct issues. One week, *THREE* of my offers were rejected, and they took over 48 hrs AFTER my dispute to correct the “oversight.” Cash-out check (finally) took a WEEK to process and another WEEK to arrive: have they heard of e-payment or instant transfer??? Neither a time-saver nor consumer-friendly.
Disappointed af so far 1/5
So far I'm 3 receipts in and for Aldi's they have all these name brand offers on here. I live in a smaller town in IOWA yes they carry some brand name things in store but you guys need to work on getting Aldi's branded food on there like asap!!!
I like the app but.... 4/5
There are not very many useful items for me. Too many Glade products!! Get more food items that are common like cereal, yogurt, frozen waffles, frozen breakfast sandwiches, and breakfast meats like bacon and sausage. Lunch things like peanut butter, jelly, chips, cheese, fresh fruit, cookies, Kool-Aid....things you would pack in a child's lunch. Dinner items like salad ingredients, pasta and sauce, meat, potatoes, rice, frozen or canned veggies, frozen noodles, frozen dinners, and frozen fruit items. No more unlocking something to be able to buy next week, give us items to buy NOW, and save money doing it. I have saved over $60.00 but it has taken a really long time because there are just not enough everyday food items. Please get more variety of foods people use everyday.
By Britt Diller
CRASH, CRASH, CRASH, CRASH, CRASH, CRASH!!!!!!!!!
Can't get anything back when it CRASHES after every picture you take! Grrrr
It isn't easy anymore 1/5
I use to like this app but the new updates made it hard to save money😡. It was better when you could pick the fruit you want to Redeem instead of unlocking them. And then there arn't any common things that I buy.
It's hard to ever redeem receipts. They do not offer money back on common things, and then when I finally had something to claim I didn't buy it at the right store.
It's a great app but after the last update, it keeps crashing when you go to take a picture of your receipt.
Great app 5/5
Had not used my app in a long time like 3 + years and I had over $15.00 in my account and when I went to my account the other day it was still there!!!!!
I now have a check in the mail for $20.00 this is a great app!!!!!!
Cannot use some offers with other apps! 2/5
I used to like this app even though not as much variety as Ibotta. Only one store, Piggly Wiggly, available to use with store card. Now you cannot use some offers with other apps or print coupons!
Simply and easy to use 5/5
This app is what it says! Gives cash back. Wish they can add more produce and less box items.
Making $$ the Easy Way! 5/5
I love this app. I just buy what I normally buy and they pay me back money for downloading my receipts. Who doesn't like free money!
Great app. You can really save money with check out 21.
Great app! 5/5
I've earned a lot of rebates/money already from just buying things I would normally buy.
No more produce offers 3/5
By Plan mar
I like this app, but don't like that they took away produce offers; not all together but they now must be earned. Not a fan of this change and would like to see these offers back without an earning stipulation.
Downhill lately 2/5
I do enjoy this app, but only from time to time now. I used to be able to earn so much in one trip. I am so tired of seeing the same products that are no where to be found in any other stores I shop at. The whole unlock things to get to the produces is a HUGE downgrade. Fresh food is more expensive than processed, I was thrilled I could save money purchasing fresh, healthy food. I loved too how I could find money back on gluten free products too. I have yet to see these items brought back in over 2 months but yet the same JUNK food is available ALL the time. Need more variety and better food selections. Nimbor products, House Autry, and Simple Mills products are there every week!!!! I've had it with seeing those products! House hold products have gone down hill as well. Please improve asap!!
Great App 5/5
I've saved quite a bit using this app. Update: I've begun reading the other reviews on here and I don't understand the issues. I admit I'm not happy about having to "earn" the produce rebates but this app isn't just food. Personal care and household items help me. I've earned almost $150 in the 3-4 months I've used the app! I'm also an Ibotta user and this is not to that level but it's still a good app!
Great Savings App 5/5
Great items in the app and great savings prices!
Love Check out 51! 5/5
By Division Employee
Extemely easy to use. I am over $80 and continues to grow. When I go to the store - I purchase a good bit from the Checkout 51 options- love it!
Great app 5/5
This is a great app. It really works. Just got my first check
Inactivity fee 1/5
By American artist in Texas
They r trying to charge me an inactivity fee if I don't claim offers when I tried to deactivate my account it said I have to wait 48 hours till a member of their team reaches me.
By Patty Smith Cox
Easy to use, easy to make extra $$$.
Can't open 1/5
By just gave up
I have tried and tried and tried I'm. It able to open a account !!! I give up !!
Threatened to charge me! 1/5
I received an email after downloading this app over a year ago saying it has been in active and if I don't use it I will be charge 2$ every month! I also can't find anyplace to cancel. I'm calling bbb , apple and my bank. This is bs!
It's no Ibotta. 1/5
I really wanted to love this app. I love Ibotta, and sadly, this app is light years behind. It's hard to find rebates within the app, and most items are obscure. You have to unlock produce rebates by buying something processed (terrible logic!) I've earned $500 in less than 2 years with Ibotta. I'm at a few months with Checkout51 and not even at $5. I just submitted a receipt for eggs. They are somehow misreading the date of my receipt and denying it. I tried to "circle it for them," but it never loaded. Fifteen minutes of wasted time and I still never got the .10. When I eventually get to $20 (in probably 3 years,) I'll gleefully cash out, delete and never look back.
Overall the app is clunky, not user friendly, and the rebates themselves aren't great.
Waste of time 1/5
I was using this app but I stopped and now they are saying because I'm not using it they are going to take money from me until the balance is zero why?
Needs a change 1/5
I have used this app for a couple of years and it's very difficult to build up any kind of worth while balance. With that being said they need to make a change. Some items require a barcode scan the problem is, you don't scan before purchase. So if you purchase and then scan and it's not right you're screwed. Totally defeating the purpose.
I'm not sure what is going on with this app. I shop, check my item, upload receipt and then the item I checked is nowhere to be found. What the heck. Another thing is you want to offer products at certain stores only. I look at those stores and I have never even heard of 4 of the 5 listed. I would never recommend this app to anyone.
Poorly made app.... practically useless to those overseas 1/5
For the love of all that is sane...... add a search function!
Scrolling through pages and pages of crap my family doesn't buy to hopefully find a non-store specific, generic brand product is a waste of time. Especially for like $.10.
Also... Y'all need to add DECA to your store specials to support your military families.
Great app 5/5
Very user friendly
Not worth the time 1/5
By Love baby app
Not nearly as good as ibotta, rebates aren't that great. Offers a lot of rebates for things I've never heard of and it now no longer lets you use the rebate if you use a coupon at the store. It now doesn't allow you to claim produce rebates unless you've earned previous rebates that week. And .10 cents back for eggs?!? Wow, what a great rebate😡
Don't waste phone storage 1/5
By Lina Sayer
This only gives you points on some particular products for the rest of your life. You can make MAYBE $20 in a year... maybe.
Used to be great now all it does it crash!! 1/5
Every time I try to load a receipt it crashes. The only reason I haven't deleted the app is because I'm almost at the cashout threshold! Fix the app!!
Horrible!!! Use Ibotta! 1/5
Not worth the hassle - plain and simple. Deleted.
Not happy with latest changes 2/5
I used to really like this app, but now you have to buy mostly junk to unlock the healthy produce offers. ☹️
Who doesn't love to earn cash back.
Worth holding on to 3/5
I keep this app and use it on the few items I would purchase anyways. I cash in every few months (PayPal would be nice, but checks don't take too long). I like it much better than ibotta because all you do is take a pic of receipt and check off items you purchased. It is frustrating when I buy items and then notice the limit has been reached. Overall, the app is worth using.
