What is Checkout51?
CheckOut51 is an app much like Receipt Hog in that they pay you for taking and submitting photos of your receipts. There are however a few key differences between the two. While Receipt Hog will pay you for qualifying receipts no matter what you purchase, Checkout51 requires you to buy specific items during the week.
How Does It Work?
Checkout51 is a very simple app to use and can be downloaded onto your iPhone, Android Smartphone, and your iPad tablets. You can also access through their web address on your desktop or laptop computer.
Before headed out to the store check your app to see what offers are available that week and if anything matches your planned shopping trip. Then when you return home simply take a photo of your receipt, upload it and send it off to Checkout51. You need to keep in mind that your purchased item must match the specified item on the list for it to qualify.
When Does Checkout51 Release New Offers?
Each Thursday new items are posted on the offers list. You will receive an email notification, and you can also find the offers by going to their Facebook Page as well as directly checking on the app itself. These offers are valid until the fallowing Wednesday and your receipts must be uploaded and submitted by 11:59 pm to qualify for payment. Typically there are about ten offers available each week. You have the option to claim as many of them as you like, but you can only claim one of each item unless otherwise noted. Each region has their own list of available items each week, and the rebates are limited in quantities so make sure your shopping trip is early in the week, because once those offers are gone…their gone. From time to time you will be sent excluding offers, that are only available to you and are based on your previous Checout51 rebates.
Can I still Use Coupons Or Other Apps With Checkout51?
Absolutely, and I encourage you to do so. By using coupons along with the available rebate you can get very cheep (sometimes free) grocery items every week! By combining the store sales, price matching, coupons, and the Checkout51 app it can be easily done. I will then take that same receipt and use my Receipt Hog app to earn coins on it as well.
How Do I Get Paid?
Once your account reaches at least $20.00 you have the option to cash out, or keep adding to the bank. Once you hit the redeem button Checkout51 will mail you a check for the balance in the account. When I cashed out in the past it only took about a week for me to receive the check. If you ask me that is pretty darn quick.
Who Can Sign Up?
Checkout51 is a Toronto Canada based company but they make this app available for residence of the US, including those who are stationed on US Military bases oversees. It is also available for most Canadian Provinces. However, both Quebec and Puerto Rico are excluded due to “differences in the legal system”. You will also want to take note that call submitted receipts are in English and are from the country where you originally signed up.
