There’s an interesting new website and app that rewards shoppers for taking advantage of its deals: Checkout 51.

Shoppers either sign up on or load the free app. Every Thursday, they receive an email with that week’s offers; the offers are good through midnight Wednesday.

Shoppers can pick the offers they like, buy the item at any store and then upload their receipt to Checkout 51’s website or app. Once the shopper reaches $20 in Cash Back Offers, Checkout 51 sends a check in the mail.

Here are some tips to make the most of Checkout 51:

• Visit the website on Thursdays to see the latest offers.

• Print a list of the offers and use it when planning your shopping trip.

• Upload the receipt on the day of purchase. If you upload the receipt after the offers have expired (Wednesday at midnight), you will not be rewarded the Cash Back Reward.

• Be sure to purchase the exact offer. Look at size and variety to be sure it’s correct.
