I recently discovered Paribus and man am I a fan! This may be the best new tool of 2015.
What does Paribus do?
Paribus links up to your shopping accounts with no effort on your part tracks your purchases. If prices drop, they get you a refund. You don’t send an email. You don’t click a button. They handle everything on your behalf.
I was a bit skeptical of how easy they made the service sound, but it really was that simple. I buy almost everything on Amazon and several times now I’ve gotten emails days or weeks after a purchase, letting me know I was receiving a refund. Just the other day I received this one. $1.00 back in my pocket on a game I purchased.
This is as close to free money as your going to find folks.
What does Paribus get out of this? Pretty simple, they take 25%. I think that’s a pretty hefty cut. I think something more like 5-15% would make more sense. BUT who am I to complain? Right now they’re the only game in town. If they’re not watching my old purchase prices, I certainly won’t. That $1.37 up above isn’t something I would have ever found.
Still here? If so consider using Tradeking for your next brokerage. They’re currently offering a HUGE $200 sign-up bonus. and Personal Capital, my favorite tool to see all your accounts in place.
