Checkout 51 is a mobile app that earns you cash back from grocery shopping. You’re buying these products anyway, why not earn money back for these purchases?

This app is simple to use. Download the Checkout 51 app through your app store. Create an account. Check your offers. And once you purchase your items, click redeem and upload your receipt. Once your receipt is approved your account will be credited.

Once you hit $20 in your account you can cash out, and you will be sent a cheque in the mail! So simple and easy, you’ll be kicking yourself for not joining sooner.

Seriously, check this app out! I absolutely love it.

Once you download the app and create an account, you will need to either link your bank card or credit card, or both!

Drop tracks your spending at their partnered stores. Such as Walmart, Starbucks, Tim Hortons, and so many others. You will earn points for every dollar you spend. Some stores earn you more points on the dollar than others.

I’m a huge coffee drinker so I’m earning close to 200 points per purchase on my coffee beverages.
Once you have enough points you can redeem them for gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Best Buy, and more.

It’s so simple, link your cards, start spending and watch your points add up!
