I came across Paribus last week, and while it seemed like a good deal, I was still a bit skeptical. This is a service that will track price changes for items you have bought from Amazon, Walmart, Target, Newegg, Best Buy, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, Gap, Old Navy, J. Crew, Staples, Sephora, Bonobos, Zappos, Athleta, Banana Republic, Macy’s, and Piperlime. If the price goes down, and you’re eligible for a refund according to the vendor’s policies and guidelines, Paribus will get you your refund.
Now you’re thinking that sounds too good to be true. There must be a catch. Here’s the catch – Paribus keeps a percentage of your refund. It’s starts out at 25%, and it’s relatively easy to reduce that number to 10% or even 0%.
The way it works is you give it access to an email account containing email receipts from the aforementioned vendors. So if you don’t want them having access to your normal email, start a new gmail account. If you’re already receiving receipts at another address, you can forward them to your new one.
Like I’ve said before, I’ve been trying it out for a week and have been liking it so far. I have a few purchases that’ll be earning me refunds soon. The only thing I’ve been disappointed with so far, is it doesn’t recognize any digital purchases from Amazon, specifically renting or purchasing streaming videos.
