Online shopping is one of the best things to have come from the internet. The days of fighting traffic, searching for a place to park and battling crowds of ornery people are over.Nowadays, we can do our shopping from the comfort of our own home. You don’t even need to get out of your comfy pajamas if you so choose. Tech gadgets, home furniture, clothes, groceries are all things that can be purchased online.Sometimes we’re so anxious to receive our items that we pay extra for guaranteed speedy delivery. If you’re a savvy shopper, you might use sites like Amazon and have a Prime account that comes with free two-day shipping on all purchases.But what if your package is supposed to reach you on a certain day and it doesn’t make it? That’s extremely frustrating, expecting a package containing your friend’s birthday gift to arrive on Friday so you can give it to them on their special day and it doesn’t show up on time.If this happens, what can you do? Don’t worry, this cool site can help.I’m talking about Paribus.The site’s original function was a service that automatically gets money back for you when there is a price drop on an item that you’ve purchased.If you buy an item at Target, or any other retailer Paribus supports, and the price drops later, you can go back and ask to be reimbursed for the difference during the return period. How often are you going to do that, though?Between work, family and life, you might not have time to drive back to the store and ask for your money. Plus, once you’re there, the worker may not know the store’s policy on reimbursement. Paribus does.The site scans your inbox for receipts and automatically saves you money when the items you buy drop in price. 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 does the work for you. When you are owed money, Paribus automatically gets it for you.It has recently added another helpful feature. Now, Paribus also works as a delivery monitoring service.If your online order from select retailers doesn’t arrive on time, Paribus will automatically file a claim for you. The site tracks guaranteed deliveries for online purchases from sites like Walmart and Amazon and will now contact the retailer for you and request compensation when delivery is late.Customers who have tested the automatic delivery monitoring system are giving positive feedback. The company said users have received everything from refunds on shipping costs, to full or partial refunds on the cost of an order, store credit, and even a complimentary one-month extension of expedited shipping memberships.To get started with Paribus and take advantage of everything it has to offer, click on the link we’ve provided below inside the blue box.
