Paribus Review: An Evolving Money Saving App

Have you heard of Paribus? Free money? Is it too good to be true?

No, it’s not.

How It Works

Like the Latin adjective par (meaning equal) Paribus works on a price arbitrage model. If you buy something and the price drops, the Paribus app uses a robot to apply for a refund and splits the refunded amount with you. Paribus links your online shopping accounts to your Paribus account. This means authorizing Paribus to full access of your email account. They track your online spending receipts by seeing what confirmation emails come to you. This allows them to keep tabs on the things you have bought. In fact, if you log in to your Paribus dashboard you can see all the things you’ve bought online.

Paribus Review: My Experience

There are lots of apps that promise to be “free money.” For the most part, they feel scammy and disappointing, but this Paribus review tells a different story. Here is proof:

Did you see that? Yes! I’ve actually saved and gotten nearly $15 back. That’ $15 that I had already spent! Getting it back makes it found money.

Think of it this way: If I had spent $59.95 on K Cups, that money comes from our grocery budget. If I were to get even just $2 back from Paribus, I am getting money that I had already spent. I can decide whether to assign that $2 back to my grocery line in the budget or somewhere else.

The biggest advantage to Paribus is that it requires basically no work. Paribus will search the purchases you’ve already made and if they can find you extra money, it will. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by using Paribus.
