What do we do?

Paribus gets you money back on your online purchases, right from the inbox.

Stores guarantee that if you buy something online and it goes on sale later, you are entitled to the difference. But getting it is a hassle. So much so that Americans are leaving $10 billion unclaimed every year -- just on their online shopping! Paribus gets you this money back automatically.

Paribus syncs with email, identifies receipts and works on your behalf to contact stores for a price adjustment. The beauty is you don’t have to change how you shop at all to benefit -- just add your email and you’re done.
