If you still don't have the Ibotta app then right NOW is the perfect time to open an account. Ibotta is offering a $30 Bonus for inviting THREE friends through 6/30/2017. The only thing you must do is redeem ONE rebate yourself to receive the welcome bonus.
Ibotta has releases a NEW 5-icon navigation bar that helps finding the rebates and stores much easier. Ibotta is my FAVORITE cash back app. It is easy to use and the savings adds up quickly. Additionally, they have updated many of the features, so you will need to familiarize yourself with these.
How Does Ibotta Work?
iBotta is a phone app that rewards shoppers by giving them various coupon rebates. Simply load the offer(s) to your smart phone. Then, after you make your purchase, submit a photo of your receipt through the app to get your cash back. It's a super simple way to save a few bucks with NO coupon clipping!
Ibotta makes saving money a lot easier. Just tell it what you're going to buy, scan your receipt when you're done, and it'll give you cash back. Additionally, Ibotta NOW offers multiple redemptions on some rebates!
The process is pretty simple:
- When you open Ibotta, click on Grocery (Restaurant or Home Improvement), and choose your store.
- Qualify for your rebate by taking a poll, reading some facts, or watching a video (this is a lot quicker and less annoying than it sounds).
- Head to the store and buy the items. When you're done, scan your receipt.
- Wait for your money to show up in your Ibotta account (usually takes just a few hours).
- Transfer your money out to PayPal (or donate to any U.S. school, if you're feeling charitable).
In my tests, the various tasks only took a few seconds to complete. Even with these "ads," Ibotta's a lot easier than searching out coupons for yourself at each separate store (or in the newspaper), so it's a nice change of pace when it comes to saving money. As of right now, there is no policy against stacking paper coupons to really maximize your savings!
That's an amazing offer, getting paid to save money on the things your were going to buy anyway. 100% of your Ibotta earnings can be transferred to PayPal as soon as you’ve earned $20. You can also take advantage of other exciting cash out options, which include Gift Cards from iTunes, Redbox, Starbucks and more. The app is full of some sweet offers right now. And, that's not even making mention all of the any brand coupons they often have available for bread, produce, eggs, milk and more.
