*Real* online savings are back.
Remember when finding great online deals was easy? It’s been a minute, and as it turns out— there’s a pretty simple reason why all the savings on your favorite coupon sites and apps like Honey have suddenly decreased.
With the sheer number of online couponing apps out there, big box stores started losing a lot of money on public coupon codes (ie. the ones widely available on sites like RetailMeNot).
Instead, these same stores began sending one-time-use-only coupons to individual customers. Cue the end of easy, searchable savings and the beginning of all that monotonous scrolling for deals in your inbox.
The first personalized savings tool was born...
As three thrifty guys living in one of the most expensive places in the world (ahem, San Francisco), we’re pretty obsessed with savings.
Which is why we built the ultimate personalized savings experience. With Checkmate, you’ll be able to:
1. Automatically use all those one-time-use coupons hiding in your inbox
2. Finally spend your gift cards (even the dusty ones you’d nearly forgotten about)
3. Score all the publicly-available online deals— without having to look for them
But as true savings maniacs, we’re taking things one step further by partnering with all your favorite stores to build a member’s only database of the best discounted gift cards on the market. We apply these discounted gift cards to your remaining balance to squeeze even more savings out of your Checkmate wallet and back into your bank account (because we know you’ve got other, less-fun things to pay for).
How we do it
The best part about Checkmate is that there’s no scrolling, searching, or math-ing involved. At least not for you— our algorithm handles it all.
By securely linking to your inbox (we take your privacy seriously), scanning your Checkmate wallet, and searching every corner of the internet— you can be sure we’re saving you every possible penny on each and every online purchase you make.
