Update 1 – 10/6/16: Capital One acquires online price tracker Paribus.
Update 2 – 4/7/17: Paribus longer supports price matching from Amazon. Their new policy states: “Amazon will price adjust for price drops on TVs for 30 days after purchase. Other purchases may be eligible under your credit card price protection policy.”
What does Paribus do?
Paribus gets you money back when prices drop, effortlessly. Stores often guarantee that you will get the lowest prices. They even promise to price match. But they don’t follow through unless you work for it. Paribus changes this — it does the work for you to get you paid.
How does Paribus get you paid?
When you are owed money, Paribus’ advanced algorithms automatically get it for you. Sign up with your mailbox, enter any missing shopping credentials, and Paribus handles everything else: Automatically detect purchases, monitor and compare price changes/coupons in real time, and engage with stores on your behalf by filing claims to get you paid.
When Paribus succeeds and stores issue your price adjustments, money is typically refunded directly onto your original form of payment with the store. For example, if you originally paid with a debit card, you should receive a credit for the amount of the refund on that debit card. The merchant, and not Paribus, issues the refund.

How much does it cost to use Paribus?
Per their website, “No success, no charge — you have nothing to lose. If Paribus succeeds in getting you money back, we get paid 25% of what we earn for you.”
