It turns out deleting your emails could be costing you money. Intrigued?

In the past two years, single mom Aimee B. has recouped $1,000 while shopping online.

Her secret weapon is called Paribus — a tool that gets you money back for your online purchases. It’s free to sign up, and once you do, it will scan your email for any receipts. If it discovers you’ve purchased something from one of its monitored retailers, it will track the item’s price and help you get a refund when there’s a price drop.

Plus, if your guaranteed shipment shows up late, Paribus will help you get compensated.

“My time is worth a lot,” Aimee says. “An hour of my time saved is absolutely worth its weight in gold.”

Or, at least, $1,000 back in her bank account.
