Have you been hearing all about Ibotta like I have lately, and thought, ‘what the heck is that?’ Well I just couldn’t stand it anymore, and I downloaded it to my phone to test it out. At first I was a little apprehensive, but after not even a week of using it, I have already earned $8.25! Plus I have gotten some killer deals on items!
Here’s how it all works: You need an iPhone or an Android to get started. Once you download the application and sign in, there will be an offer page that you can scroll through and select what products you would like to earn the money from. Once you click on the product, there is typically 3 different tasks you can do to earn an amount which in the end will be the amount you get back after you make a purchase in the store. These tasks can vary from taking a poll, to watching a short video. It is pretty quick and easy though, so don’t be worried that it’s going to take up all your time.
Once you have completed the offers that you want, you go shopping! The great thing about Ibotta is that you can still use all your paper or rewards card coupons without it affecting how much you will get back from Ibotta!! So just plan out your shop like you would any other day. When you are finished shopping, I found it is easiest to redeem the amount as soon as you get home and are unloading the groceries. So you click on the redeem button and it will ask you to take a picture of your receipt, then a picture of the bar code of the product you got to make sure it is a match. Within 24 hours, you will get a confirmation of whether or not it was successful! (I’ve never had any issues with anything being accepted, and it usually is only a couple hours later, if that.)
Once you are ready to cash out, you can select ‘withdraw’ and will have a choice between having it put in your PayPal account, or choose from a selection of gift cards!
To get started, just sign up here! It’s so easy, and I know you will love getting even more savings on items you purchase!!
Awesome. Thank You. 🙂

I wish that you could do this with your desk top computer since it looks like you don’t have the cashiers scan anything for those that don’t have an apple or android phone
No, they don’t scan anything, it’s too bad they never went that route. Unfortunately couponing is becoming more and more centered around phone apps. 🙁
