Yes, it is 2013! Technology for couponing and saving money in Canada just got exciting!
How To Use Checkout 51 with Coupons?
The BEST part about Checkout 51 is that you can use coupons to save even more on the offered products each week (offers run Thursday – Wednesday).
Checkout 51 lists approximately 10 – 15 offers a week (products and discount vary) that when combined with sales AND coupons at your favourite stores can save you tons of money each week.
Coupon Christine does weekly Checkout 51 ad match-ups for Ontario to get the biggest bang for your Checkout 51-buck! I love this program and have already received two cheques from Checkout 51 valued at over $50 total!
Who Can Use Checkout 51?
If you are a Canadian resident (excluding the province of Quebec) and you have an Iphone, Ipad or Ipod and are able to take clear photos of your receipts you can easily become a member of Checkout 51.
If you are an Android or other smartphone user, they are working hard to get you in on the action so hang tight!
Another great feature of Checkout 51 is it is set up to allow all members an equal sharing of the offers. You can choose to purchase all offers on the list, but you are limited to cash back on 1 product per Checkout 51 account.
How does Checkout 51 get paid?
Checkout 51 has made some amazing contacts that have agreed to release a limited amount of offers each week to its members. Once they reach the limit set out from the companies, they do not give any more refunds.
Great offers go fast like Heinz Ketchup, Huggies wipes and Coca-Cola offers, so shop early and submit your receipt to not be disappointed
Will we start to see Checkout 51 permit its members to buy more than 1 product? Time will tell: The team at Checkout 51 have a very close relationship to Coupon Christine and they tell her that “the more Checkout 51 is used, the more exciting the offers will be”.
Coupons and technology, are we excited? Heck yes! If you are a Canadian couponer, you can relate to the ‘pain’ of non-scannable coupons, cashiers that read coupons over three times before accepting, and long line ups behind us at the checkout.
Couponing and Checkout 51
Is Checkout 51 paving the road for Canadian couponers?
Will other online coupon distributors (Websaver.ca; Save.ca; Brandsaver.ca, GoCoupons.ca) see the benefits of moving away from the cost and time it takes to distribute; mail; and process returned coupons?
In an ideal “coupon world”, downloadable coupon app software would allow us to download the coupons we want, submit our receipts, and earn cash back in online accounts. No more clipping coupons and carrying around those heavy coupon binders.
It is definitely a win for the couponers, but also a huge score for companies looking to find out details on shopping habits. Who is shopping at which store, what time of day and what else they are buying.
Not to promote a “big brother world” for us to be leery of, but let us envision the personal gain from a couponers stand-point on saving time and money with ease of online applications.
Will companies lose those who are not technologically savvy? Will companies gain a new younger generation of money-savers?
Time will tell. Checkout 51 is the first of its kind in Canada to allow companies direct access to its customers via an app. Simply providing offers, companies and Checkout 51 can get instant access on how much of their product is being purchased across Canada. Pretty cool if you ask me!
