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.

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?

Need help? We’re here.

Amazing deals! I can finally afford stuff normally way out of my price range... Beef, lamb, specialty breads... The stores I've dealt with too have been great so far. I tend to go to the store and look at everything before I buy. Less confusion if they are out of something... And sometimes there are items in the fridge that aren't on the list. If I want it, though, the price usually works out completely in my favour when I go to the counter or cashier to check out. :)

I'm experiencing the same thing I've seen others talking about. The app freezes and once you click on an item, nothing appears and the screen stays white. And yes, I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app with the same results. I see the only thing being reported is to contact their support but why not address it collectively or systematically? It's going to get deleted soon because it's just too frustrating to deal with. I feel bad about telling others about this app now.

Frustrating. This app worked great and I used it every few days until a couple weeks ago when it started glitching. I just get a white screen when clicking on an item or failure to complete the checkout payment. Please, please, please fix the issue! I'm missing out on some great deals!!

What's new

We are pleased to share that Canadian shoppers will now be able to purchase meat and seafood products that were frozen before their best before date in select Real Canadian Superstore locations. These items will be labeled Fresh-to-Frozen in the app.

Shoppers will now be able to share their referral code more easily and we have improved our onboarding experience for new users.
