Hi there!

We are the HYKESters

We empower consumers to make their own decisions

Here is our story

HYKE wins a pitch competition
Idea stage
Summer 2019
Why did you buy that particular item? What if you had more money to spend? Would you buy that very item again? For Ph.D. people, these questions are enough to start a journey. We participated in the Evolution program by Genesis to validate our idea, interview users, and customers and, more importantly, build the minimum viable product.
We ended up winning the first place prize of the PitchNPick competition!

Learning, Planning, and Execution
Fall 2019
Time to learn, build, test, and repeat. We participated in Volta Leap, Y Startup school, Propel Phase II, and pitched to join the Genesis Enterprise program. Enterprise is an incubator program designed to help technology startups grow their business and get to Product-Market Fit. The product is getting ready, and we're testing it for the beta release.
HYKE Beta launch
Beta Release
Winter 2020
Beta is where the maybe gets clarity. We designed a trial run for testing our product with targeted users and customers. Meanwhile, we participated in the Disciplined Entrepreneurship workshop by Bill Allet and learned how to translate technology into an innovative new product.

A pioneer of transparency and a leader in consumer-centric data analytics.

To empower individuals to make better decisions.

We can HYKE your career too!

Come work with us!

HYKE is the next-generation savings app that gives you the freedom to indulge on your own terms. This ain’t your grandma’s coupon flyer: you won’t find expired offers or menu limitations. It’s not your dad’s loyalty card or your ex’s cash-back app either: you won’t have to wait to be rewarded. HYKE is cash upfront, so you can get more of what you want.

It’s easy to HYKE. Simply tell us your budget and what kind of activity you’re looking for. You can select the offer that you find most enticing, and use the cash upfront directly for your purchase.

Yes, HYKE is completely free to use.

No, HYKE does not require a credit check or bank details.

HYKE is for anyone who spends money. So, HYKE is for everyone!

It’s easy to set up a HYKE account. Simply download the app, tap the “Create an account” button and follow the steps. Start getting that sweet, sweet cash right away. There’s no credit check, no fees, no bank details needed. We don’t even need your real name; just tell us what you like to be called 😉

HYKE can be used at our partner businesses: restaurants, coffee shops, grocery + convenience, retail and more! Keep an eye on the available offers in your area, as we’re adding more business partners daily!

Unlike cash back or points, HYKE rewards you instantly. We know that sometimes you need a little budget boost upfront. So go ahead, treat yourself!

HYKE is based in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and we are expanding across Canada in the near future. Keep checking back to see when you can get cash upfront in your city!

HYKE collects fees from our business partners to give our deserving HYKERS (you) free cash.
