It seems too good to be true, what’s the catch?
There’s no catch! Grocers are working hard to reduce waste. By partnering with Flashfood, they’re able to sell food nearing its best by date faster and more reliably because of our passionate Flashfoodies. For the grocer, that means reducing waste. For our shoppers, that means a steady stream of deals. A real win-win! To date, our 2 million plus users have helped get over 20 million pounds of delicious food to dinner tables—instead of landfills.

The biggest reason of all
Just in case the sheer joy of a great meal at a killer price isn’t enough—shopping with Flashfood means you’re directly helping to reduce food waste in your community.

30-40% of food in the US gets wasted and it’s the biggest category of material placed in municipal landfills in America. When good food gets sent to a landfill, it decomposes and emits methane gas—a greenhouse gas even more brutal than carbon dioxide. That’s why we’re here. Who knew service to the planet could also be delicious?

Nice app, some kinks to work out

So, we live in a small area and there are only two stores within a few hour drive from us that have this app (kink one). The one we use is about 14 miles from our house. That being said, you can imagine that the inventory is very limited (kink two). I searched other areas and there a many more stores and foods to choose from in larger cities/areas. This is also so new in our area that the store employees still aren’t 100% sure how to operate the system (kink three). But, we have bought a few boxes so far and have been pretty happy. It would help if some contents were listed. Like if it’s an ENTIRE box of lettuce rather than just lettuce on top, that would be nice to know (kink four, but our rabbits are happy!) So far the fruit has been in great shape and the process is pretty simple. My kids say these are the best oranges they’ve ever had. I have six children, so buying large boxes of mixed fruit is perfect, but if we weren’t such a big family, this might be too much to eat in a week or two. If you like to do canning or have animals that will eat the extras, it’s a great deal!

Thank you for your feedback. Whenever there is a new Flashfood partner on the block, it takes a store some time to adjust to our platform and process but they are all working extremely hard to help reduce food waste. We are currently working to expand Flashfood to more stores in smaller cities so stay tuned!

DEVS please read suggestion

We love this app! It has saved us a lot of money on our grocery bill and it’s a good feeling to know that the food isn’t going to go to waste. DEVS- by way of suggestion, please allow the grocery store interface to show the same thing the customer sees (original price of item specifically). I’ve had instances where I’ve bought an item priced by weight and there has been other remaining items of the same kind and I have not received the item that I paid for. For quick example- a whole chicken. It may not seem like much, but to someone on a budget- especially in this economy- every dollar counts. I also don’t want to take what someone else has purchased. I’ve also noticed annoyance and even some bad attitudes with the grocery employees when I have (kindly) insisted upon my specific item. They’re busy, I’m busy- it would make things a lot easier if the interfaces mirrored each other more. Thank you!

Potential but needs major work

I’ve been using Flashfood for a while, and I do plan on continuing to use it. It is hit or miss, and buyer beware. There are quite a few things that need to be improved. First of all, it’s impossible to get a hold of somebody from the CS side of Flashfood. They don’t respond when you have an issue. Second, there’s no way to hold the stores accountable for what they are listing. I’ve had stores misrepresent items a few times now, and since no one responds from customer service side of Flashfood, you’re stuck with garbage that you got. The store is not responsible to give you a refund, and since you’ve already paid, the only way to get a refund would be to go through Flashfood… And we already know where that one ends. I’ve also had, several times now, people will take my items that I bought, and leave their items that may be less desirable. This happens quite frequently with produce where somebody will take something that is not theirs even though the produce is clearly labeled. At least it is clearly labeled as the stores that I’ve been to. Again, there’s no way to recoup your losses on this because nobody replies from Flashfood, and the stores are not responsible for these items.
