What is Earny? A Review
Earny.co is a website that tracks your online purchases through your email, and gets cashback for you if prices drop after purchase. They automate scrapping your your email receipts and checking product prices so you don’t have to.
This is huge. Even though many retailers offer to refund the difference if the price drops after you purchase, it’s rare that you bother to check or file a claim, especially if the purchase is small. There are many major retailers covered, including Target, Walmart, Macy’s, Staples, among others.
What’s more, is that Earny partners with Citibank and Chase to automatically file claims for the price protection insurance that most credit cards offer. This is especially great for retailers that don’t offer refunds for price-drops after purchase, like Amazon.
I got my first refund today for $3 on a $12 purchase. Is it worth wasting 10+ minutes of my time filing a price protection claim to save $3? Definitely not. But I wouldn’t even have noticed that the price dropped on Amazon on my purchase! That’s what’s so great, because that’s all done for you now automatically!
Right now, Earny only covers US retailers, although I know most Canadians do a lot of cross-border shopping, so it’s really easy to just sign up and not have to thinking about it. This is jus another easy way to save money when purchasing online, in additional to shopping portals, electing the right credit card for insurance like price protection and extended warranty, and checking to see that I’m earning a category bonus.
