What is Checkout 51?
Although Ibotta is my personal favorite cashback app. it is far from the only app that can be used for cashback on groceries. Another good one is Checkout 51. This app is very similar to Ibotta in that you make your regular purchases for groceries or gas and then take a picture of the receipt to earn cashback. You can also use it for some online purchases done through the app. The products that you can earn cashback on are items that might make for somewhat rare and obscure purchases, like non-prescription medicines, things like duct tape, or even pet medicine. But, it’s still useful and might be able to be used for anything not on Ibotta at the time.
While the cashback items are somewhat more obscure and not as varied as the ones on Ibotta it also offers these offers at retail stores that are also somewhat less known along with several of the usual big box stores. Some examples would be Albertson’s, Food Giant, Commissary, and Save-A-Lot Food Stores.
Using the Checkout 51 app!
Checkout 51 Gas Cashback!
Similar to the GetUpside app I have also written about on this blog, Checkout51 also has a cashback feature for gas. Using these types of apps in tandem can really juice up your savings.
Checkout 51 Online Shopping Offers
The online cashback feature from Checkout 51 covers a few different stores that change over time and offer you a certain percentage of cashback when you shop through the app. Make sure to check what the offer covers because the advertised offer might only apply to one category of purchases and they will have a different amount for others.
Checkout 51 Surveys
Checkout 51 also has this feature that allows you to take surveys for a certain amount of cashback. They don’t offer a lot of money. I’ve been seeing surveys offering 20-50 something cents in my case. But, it’s free money for very little work.
Once your redeemed cashback reaches $20 you can then use the “Cash Out” option in your profile and Checkout51 will mail a check to you or send the money to your linked Paypal account.
Checkout51 Prescription Savings Card!
Lastly, similar to the app GoodRx that I have also written about, Checkout51 offers a type of prescription savings card service for people to save on their prescription costs. The app shows the card at the top of the page that you can click to enlarge. Below the card are instructions on how to use it to get savings. The prescription service offered by Checkout51 covers over 50,000 medications at Walgreens, CVS, Kroger, Walmart, Rite Aid, Duane Read, and more. Here is the list of all the pharmacies it covers.
