Just in time for Black Friday – Pick2Pay now available for Android/Chrome

Black Friday or Cyber Monday shopping, which apparently already has begun, will get an extra boost now that previously mentioned Pick2Pay is available for Android and Google Chrome users. If you haven’t seen it already, it’s a great tool for helping you maximize rewards, like cash back or frequent flyer miles, when shopping. With the Chrome App, Pick2Pay operates in the background and will pop up when you start shopping on a participating site. This makes using the app on a desktop a bit more user friendly.

Black Friday shopping just got even more rewarding with Pick2Pay

After figuring out what store you are going to buy a product or service from, the tool helps you decide both the best credit card and shopping portals for earning loyalty points, cash back, or frequent flyer miles. Sometimes, it makes more sense to choose cash back over frequent flyer miles if there’s a higher payout, and vice versa. Since portals have different timetables for awarding points, cash back, and miles, there may be a longer lag time for some than others. For example, Ebates pays out every three months, while Top Cash Back can vary substantially by retailer, so you may want to consider that when two shopping portals offer the same reward. Some have minimum amount thresholds, for example, $5 to $10, or more, before they will pay you anything.

This tool will save you time in your quest for earning loyalty points, especially on Black Friday, by not having to visit multiple websites.
