    Warning to everyone using the Zweet app!
    There is a cause in the terms and conditions that if you haven't used the app in the last year they have the right to take all your earned money in the account if it's under $20 and if it's over $20, they will take $2 a month off your account until you use it again.
    I haven't been able to use the app in a year because there hasn't been a single offer available to me that I use. I check each week too. I even e-mailed them last month about checking out my $11.25 because I haven't been able to use the account and they refused me.
    Now all my money is gone and they refuse to return it to me even if I do another offer. So all my money is just gone. What company has the right to take all the money like that away? The parent companies are paying them the money on the products, so basically they are stealing out of our pockets the money we earned by using their app. They are getting value marketing information from us each time we submit a receipt so they are earning their money other ways. They don't need to be clawing back our funds.
    I am calling a bocoytt on their app until they remove their yearly clawback cause.

    That is exactly why I hate those apps. They never have anything useful to me. The only one I still have money in is Checkout 51 - $14 and I doubt I'll every reach enough to cash out.

    Thank you for the warning. I also haven't been able to use any of their offers in a long time and I'm stuck at $12 or $14 in my account. I wanted to get enough to cash out one last time, but I don't know if that will ever happen.

    I cashed out zweet years ago and havenít used it since. I still have/check the app but there hasnít been any offers at all that we could/would use.

    Same with the save.ca app however at least I can order mail coupons directly through the app so itís not completely useless.

    i still use chechout51 and caddle but there arenít as many offers and they have lower values for the offers I can use.

    That happened to me to too. I had about $14.00 and now it is all gone because I haven't used any of their crappy offers in over a year.

    Sounds like the app is following prepaid credit card or gift card logic in charging a service fee. Interesting that several of you have had few offers to help you get to the cashout stage. Wonder if that was deliberate on the app company's end or business is changing.

    Thanks for pointing this out, I just went and checked and they have zero'd mine too. What a waste of time and effort - so I deleted the app!

    that's not right, they already get money from companies to promote their products and shouldn't be penalizing people for inactivity; how active should people be when it seems like there's been 6 to 8 items only for over six months now and they take forever to add anything new?. They had Babybel cheeses on for months and now it's those Raclette cheese products on for weeks and weeks. Do they only talk to cheese companies? lol. They used to have a lot more variety weekly than over the past year. I've cashed out twice since joining -- $20 each time, the second it hits the minimum since I don't trust how long a company like this will be in business. Changio was gone like a few weeks after I cashed out the only $20 I ever got from them (just dumb luck on the timing). Seems Zweet is spiraling......nowhere near as good as Checkout51 or Caddle right now....and this policy will only cause people to not use them even more.

    I guess the app does not offer a way to buy a token item with Zweet just so you can incur one transaction in a calendar year? Sigh, the effort to keep up with program details and changes takes up time.

    Zweet discontinued offering savings July 4th and people can redeem up to the day their APP shuts down on Aug. 4th. That said, you need to already have $20 in your account or enough points to redeem for something, otherwise you're out of luck. I only have $7.00 and never was able to get enough points to redeem for anything, so that's gone...though I'd previously gotten two $20.00 cheques from them, so even factoring in the loss here at the end, came out ahead all told. Only Checkout51 and Caddle left.

    I have barely used the app after the Dessange offers were gone. I had a balance of $9 sitting there at least for a year. Contacted them via email and asked to honour the balance even though it's less than $20. No questions asked, received e-transfer via email within less than a week. I suggest to contact them and ask to cash out the balance. My experience was positive.
