Many people have been asking me if Checkout 51 is a scam and I’m here to put your mind at ease. It’s not a scam.
You may or may not have heard about Checkout 51 by now. If you haven’t, let me explain what it’s all about:
Checkout 51 is a Canadian rebate/cash-back mobile app where you earn money back from your grocery purchases. It’s the same thing as mail-in rebates, except that you don’t actually have to mail anything in. Instead, you simply take a photo of your receipt that shows you purchased the item(s) available for cash back and upload it through the app.
Now, you may be thinking: “this sounds way too good to be true”, but guess what – it’s true.
Since they just recently came out with an iPhone app, many people have been asking me the following question: “is Checkout 51 a scam?”.
Checkout 51 is NOT a scam. It’s a legitimate way to earn cash back on your grocery purchases. I have been using the program myself since it first launched, so I know this for a fact. Many MrsJanuary.com readers have also been using Checkout 51 since it launched and they will agree that it’s a great program. Many of them have received multiple cheques already (some have received more than $100 back!).
Right now, only those with an iPhone or iPad can sign up to the program (it also works on any camera-enabled iPod Touch). They are working on making it available on other phones, as well as for people who may not have a phone.
