Earny, a personal assistant bot that automatically gets consumers money back for retailers’ discounts on past purchases, raised $1.2m in seed funding.
Backers included Sweet Capital and Science Inc., Jeff Bonforte, SVP, Communications Products at Yahoo, and Wealthfront CEO Adam Nash.
Led by Oded Vakrat, CEO, Earny provides an app that automatically tracks purchases through emailed receipts, finds better prices, monitors price adjustments and files refund claims back to the original payment method. Earny automatically unlocks those savings from credit card issuers as well as more than 50 of the largest retailers in the United States. MasterCard’s Simplify Commerce technology handles all Earny transactions securely and safely.
It is available free on iTunes.
As part of the investment from Science, Earny will relocate from San Francisco to Santa Monica to be a part of Science’s headquarters.
