Flashfood app allows you to buy high quality, surplus grocery items at krazy discounts, like up to 50% off without using coupons. Flashfood is available in grocery stores like Meijer, Family Fare, and Hy-Vee. You’ll save money on your grocery shopping while, basically saving the planet.

Move over Walmart grocery, or even flipp, fetch, ibotta, salewhale, paribus and checkout 51 (although they’re all very cool). Flashfood is a super simple way to get amazing food deals everyday! Here’s how this genius food app works to get you cheap groceries:

Start browsing food items like meat, bread, dairy, and yummy desserts.
Add those items to your cart and purchase right from your phone.
Head out to collect your food from the grocery location.
Follow signs to the Flashfood zone, *hint* it’ll be green!
Confirm your picked up at the nearby customer service desk.


PS: Excitement can get the best of us - don’t forget to look both ways before crossing the street!

Some food for thought:

• When food gets thrown out, most times it ends up in a landfill. The food then gets covered by other garbage and when it rots, it doesn’t have any oxygen. This process produces methane gas, which leads to greenhouse gas effects.

• If international food waste was a country, it would be the 3rd largest greenhouse gases producer after the USA and China!

• This is not expired food. Actually, did you know that the expiry date does not equal the best before date? The food sold is approaching its best before date by a few days to a few weeks, so it’s perfectly edible.
By purchasing through Flashfood, you negate those harmful environmental effects. Thank you, you’re basically a Saint.

Happy Shopping!

Great app! Fee a surprise

Flashfood is a great idea. Easy to use, feels kind like a treasure hunt. I love that it reduces waste and let’s me buy at a huge discount. I do wish I had known I’d see an international transaction fee on my bank statement. It wasn’t much and I’m totally fine paying it, but it scared me. I didn’t know it was an international purchase and thought I’d had my account hacked.

We're very sorry to hear that! As we expanded to the US, we found our shoppers were being charged a fee. We have since worked with our payment provider and you shouldn't see any more charges on your card. Please feel free to send us an email to so we can further chat about this and turn things around for you!

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.

Store Management isn’t good enough

I downloaded this app because I like the idea of discounted foods and reducing food waste. So far I love it aside from the following two things! There are two issues. I placed an order and picked it up, and noticed there was a LOT of food inside the Flashfood cooler that was not listed on the app. Things like ice cream, pastries, fruit boxes, etc., all things I would have purchased. I think this is a store issue

I thought there was an issue with billing, turns out when you pick up your order it doesn’t disappear from the app. So I have 2 receipts across 2 days, but both orders are listed as waiting for pickup. It would be nice if there was a way to confirm pickup so that the items disappear from your cart:)

Hey! Thank you so much for the review! To answer your question, items that are in the Flashfood fridge but not on the app have already been purchase by other customers who haven't come to pick their order yet! We would love to share your issue with our operation team! Could you please reach out to us at and let us know which stores haven't confirmed your pick-up!
