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!

Great response time

We are fairly new in using this app. We have had very good success.
However, over the weekend, we purchased a listing described as “Navel Oranges 72 Ct”, with a picture of a huge stack of oranges. Every other purchase has been as pictured on the app. When picking up the merchandise, we were told the package was for 10 oranges. We requested a refund….was told to apply to the app. Not being aware of how successful that would be, we opted to take the smaller number of oranges.
Mid afternoon yesterday, I sent an inquiry asking how we should have handled the transaction. Today, we received a very nice response, and, a credit for the full purchase price. It was stated that they would be addressing the matter with their team and the team at the store.
So, a very prompt response and a courteous conclusion. We would highly recommend this app, and, hope more stores will participate.

Great deals. Totally legit

This app allows you to save money and is the real deal. You just have to use the food quickly because it is about to expire. However, it’s a great way to save money. I do wish there was a kiosk to check yourself out because I find you have to wait for an employee to come over unlock it and get the food for you which is a little frustrating at times particularly when they are busy and in some stores where it is not always in a location that is right near someone like a self check out. Overall, great value and hope to see more food added to it in the future. Super easy to use simple and intuitive.
