Ibotta Coupon App – Free $10 in Cash for New Users!!!

ibotta

WOW! If you have not tried out the Ibotta coupon app, now is the time! Any new user who joins our team through this link will get a FREE $10 cash bonus after redeeming ONE offer – Yes, just ONE offer! Ibotta is EASILY my favorite cash back app. I love it! Everyone should have this app.

ibotta app

iBotta is a phone app that rewards shoppers by giving them various coupon rebates. Simply load the offer to your smart phone, after you make your purchase, submit a photo of your receipt through the app to get your bonus 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.

The process is pretty simple:

  1. Browse the app for offers
  2. Qualify by taking a poll, reading some facts, or watching a video (this is a lot quicker and less annoying than it sounds).
  3. Head to the store and buy the items. When you’re done, scan your receipt.
  4. Wait for your money to show up in your Ibotta account (usually takes just a few hours).
  5. 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 You can also combine Ibotta offers with coupons from other sources for even more savings, which is nice.

Any Brand

That’s an amazing offer, getting paid to save money on the things your were going to buy anyway.  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.

Smith’s Coupon Class Tip #1 – How to Read the Coupon Fine Print

Reading the fine print on anything is annoying, especially if you’re like me and have to break out a pair of glasses to do it, but that tiny little print on the coupon is really important and understanding what it means can empower and give you the confidence to know you are using them correctly. Not to mention avoid frustration and confrontation at checkout. Understanding what the coupon fine print means is a necessity in the coupon world, so here’s a guide to help you out. 

One coupon per perchase
Limit One Coupon Per Purchase:

Purchase means you can use one type of coupon for each individual item purchased. So, if you purchase 1, 3, or 5 items, for example, you can use the same number of coupons.  Keep in mind if the coupon is for 2 or more products ($1.00 off 2) you need to purchase 2 products for each coupon you use. Limiting the coupon product purchase is meant to keep you from using the same coupon twice on one product.

How To Use Coupons
Limit 1-4 coupon per transaction:

When you see this phrase in the fine print, you can only use the specified number of coupons  per item, and per shopping trip. For example, if your coupon states limit 2 coupons per shopping trip, you can only use two coupons for that shopping trip, and will have to come back another time to use any additional coupons for that product you may have. 

NOTE: Many of the manufacturers we work with have expressed to us that this is the number one misuse of coupons. Even if your store allows you to use more, it is not what the manufacturer has intended. Abusing the coupon terms has and will result in the manufacturer issuing fewer coupons and smaller values. Also, the store often doesn’t get reimbursed for the coupons, causing the store to become less coupon friendly. We never recommend you use more coupons than what’s allowed in the fine print.

Smith's Store Coupons

Store Coupon VS. Manufacturer Coupon:
While they are rare, Smith’s does on occasion have store coupons for products other than Kroger brand. Look for them in your Smith’s mailers and on displays near the products. You can combine a store and manufacturer coupon to get a bigger discount on the purchase of a single product in the same transaction. Even if both coupons say “Limit one coupon per transaction,” Smith’s coupon policy does allow for both coupons to be used together. Shoppers are allowed to combine Catalina coupons and Money Off Smith’s store coupons with all other manufacturers coupons.

Coupons Redeemable only at Walmart

Available/Redeemable at Walmart, Target, Walgreens or Other Store:
Many of the printable coupons from Coupons.com have a store suggestion on them. Keep in mind, this is only a suggestion. Some retailers like Walmart pay to have their names printed on manufacturer coupons, but this doesn’t mean you can’t use them at other stores. Unless the coupon specifically states ONLY valid at that particular store you can use it anywhere that accepts coupons, including Smith’s. Read more about this on Coupons.com here.

Can Not Be Combined With Any Other Coupon:
Sometimes this lingo confuses people. When you see a manufacturer coupon with “Cannot be combined with any other coupon,” it doesn’t mean you can’t use a store coupon on top of the manufacturer coupon. Since the store coupon is basically a one time sale offer from the store and the manufacturer coupon is an offer from that product. If the store’s policy is to accept both you can use them together. What the coupon means is you can not use (or combine) two manufacturer coupons for the same item.

Limit 1-4 Coupon(s) Per Visit:
“One per visit” means you can only use one identical coupon per shopping trip. If you have multiple identical coupons that have this verbiage, you’ll have to return to the store another day to use them. While we do hear extreme couponers stating that they simply walk out and then walk back in and that means “visit”. We think that’s not within the spirit of the fine print and abuses valid use.

Limit One Coupon(s) Per Customer or Household:
This is new lingo we’re seeing pop up occasionally on coupons. Even if you have four of the same coupon with the phrase “One per customer” or “One per person” you can’t use more than one total. 

Products pictured:
A lot of couponers assume that the product(s) shown on a coupon are the only items eligible for the discount. This is often not the case. Make sure to read the listed products and sizes. Most often you’ll have more than what’s shown as an optional purchase.

How To Use CouponsVoid if reproduced, transferred, or used to purchase products for resale.
There are some groups of people out there that have chosen to sell or transfer coupons, or buy hoards of the same product using coupons to re-sell for a large profit. Both stores and manufacturers have expressed that this has become a huge problem for them. While it may be tempting to participate in these kinds of Social Media communities, doing so goes against the gift the manufacturer is giving you by discounting their product and is already resulting in negative results, not to mention in many cases it’s illegal. We don’t endorse the purchase or transfer of any coupon for any reason.

Manufacturers put out coupons because they want you to try their products and they hope you’ll become brand loyal in the process. Most of these same manufacturers donate millions to charitable organizations. Using the coupon correctly ensures that they will continue to do so and that we will continue to see great coupons from them. 

Hopefully this will help you feel more confident that you’re using your coupons correctly. We’ll be posting more of these Coupon Class tips in the next few weeks.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Printing Internet Grocery Coupons

Printing Grocery Coupons

Printing internet coupons can be confusing and event a little scary for those just getting started. Here’s a list of the most asked frequently asked questions when it comes to printing internet Grocery Questions.

*Where do I find Internet Grocery Coupons?

Finding them can be tough. You will often find printable coupons on various manufacturers websites and Facebook pages. There are also several large companies that work with manufacturers and release their coupons. The most popular and trusted are Coupons.com, Hopster.com, SmartSource.com and Redplum.com. We’ve teamed up with these sites, so in some cases you don’t even have to leave the site to print. You will also find a massive collection of internet grocery coupons on our Printable Coupon DataBase found here.

*Why do I have to install the “Coupon Printer” to print coupons?

Coupon printer is an application that limits the number of coupons you can print.  Most vendors allow 2 prints per computer and will require you to have coupon printer installed on your computer to print coupons.  You can usually push the back button to print a second and sometimes third coupon, but sometimes you have to revisit the website to get the second print.

*Why do I have to sign-up to print some of the coupons?

Most of the companies that have you sign-up for their coupons are doing some kind of research and want to know where the best marketing dollar for their buck is.  Many have online newsletters that they send out to keep you coming back for more. If you don’t want the newsletter there is usually a box you can un-check to keep from receiving it. If you worried about spam we suggest you get a junk email address that way you can still get the coupons without the worry.  G-mail & Yahoo are both good.

*How can I save on ink & paper?

Set your printer to preview before you print and print 1 coupon at a time. This way you can cancel the print after the coupon prints and not have to print the ad that sometimes appears at the bottom of the page.

To save paper, I like to trim the first coupon I print off the page then feed the leftover paper through again to print 1 more coupon, then flip the paper over to print the last one.

I get my ink cartridges refilled at Costco. The cost is $7.99-9.99 depending on the cartridge. If you aren’t a Costco member, I’ve also ordered from 123Inkjets with good results.

*When I click on the coupon link, I get the message “sorry there are no prints for this campaign”. Why does this happen?

When the vendor releases the coupons they issue a certain number of prints. Once all the prints are gone you will get this message. We leave the coupon link on the web page because the coupon often makes a come back. So, if you see an item you use often check the link periodically. You, might find the coupon has been released again. We do our best to keep you posted on when the coupon becomes available again. If you click on a link that is broken and all you get is a bunch of code, please let us know through the contact link at the top of the page.

*What’s a “print limit”

Manufacturers put print limits on most printable coupons. The first limit is how many you can print per computer. It’s usually 2, but I always check sometimes they allow  more than 2. Just push your browsers back button to find out.  They also put a limit on the number of coupons released. So when that number has been met the coupon then disappears.

*Is there a secret to getting the High Value coupons before they print out?

Everyone that loves those high value printable’s has had this frustration! Especially with the growing demand. Coupons.com seems to release theirs very early in the morning (1:00 am). Yes, I hate to admit it, but I am often up and checking. Redplum seems to go with Sunday’s, and we do get warning of most of theirs. We do our best to let you know of what’s coming. If you miss one don’t get frustrated. I’ve missed out on many myself.

*What does it mean when you refer to “reset”?

As mentioned previously most coupons have a 2 print limit per computer. Periodically through out a campaign the manufacturer may decide to allow more prints. So, they reset the coupon to print again. Allowing you to print a couple more. We often see this happen just before a coupon campaign ends.


coupon fraud

*Can I photocopy or scan the coupon?

NO! and NO! It’s illegal to make photo copies any coupon that has a limit. Read the terms of use you have to check before printing, you’ll see they say 1 or 2 per household or person etc... Printable coupons actually have an embedded code that print associated with computer’s IP. They are tracked. When you download the required coupon printer you make the agreement not to copy the coupons. Photocopying coupons is the equivalent of printing dollar bills; it’s fraud, plain and simple. Don’t make this mistake.

*Where do I find legitimate coupons and how do I know?

Legal printable coupons will most often be found on the manufactures website, Facebook page or a coupon printing resource like coupons.com. If you aren’t printing it from one of those specific places, it’s possible it’s not legit. If the coupon is super HIGH in value and seems to good to be true it probably is. If you ever have a question about a specific coupon you can check with the CIC (Coupon Information Center) or feel free to post the question on our page and we’ll do our best to check it out for you.


Here’s a list of the some of the best resources we know for finding and printing legitimate coupons:

Coupons.com – Has $100’s of dollars worth of printable coupons. They update and change at random so print them when you see them. Usually a 2 print limit.

SmartSource.com – In addition to their weekly newspaper circular, SmartSource has loads of printable coupons online. These online coupons are a little less time sensitive than the other websites and not as high in value. You often find the same coupon in Sunday’s paper. The pull down menu on the “Brand” category is very useful for navigating the site.

Redplum.com – Has fewer coupons than Coupons.com, but still a great resource. New coupons are usually released early Sunday morning. You’ll want to hit the site then to get the more popular coupons. Watch out the high value coupons go FAST!

Hopster.com – Hopster allows the user to boost the value of the coupon by performing social actions like sharing.

Common Kindness – Coupons from Common Kindness are for usually for Healthy, Earth Friendly or Organic Foods. To access you need to log in or create a Common Kindness account and choose a charity to support. When you use the coupon, Common Kindness will make a donation to the charity. How cool is that?!

Manufacturers Websites:

Kelloggs.com – Kellogg’s releases high value coupons that often don’t make it into the weekly circulars. New coupons are added at the first of each month.

Proctor & Gamble – Proctor & Gamble has many printable coupons available on their site. P&G products include, Tide, Crest, Febreeze and more.

BettyCrocker.com – Has coupons specific to Betty Crocker products. Many of which are found on Coupons.com as well. It makes a great second chance at some coupons when 2 prints aren’t enough. You will also find fun recipes on this website.

Cambell’sKitchen.com – Has coupons specific to Campbell’s products. The coupons on this site are often hard to find. You will also find other coupons and offers on this site as well. Currently there is a $2.00 coupon for a Campbell’s cookbook and an offer for FREE music downloads.

Hopefully this will help, Here’s a list of some of the most-used terms and abbreviations and what they mean that  you’ll see and hear used by seasoned couponers on and on blogs:


Common abbriviations often used on Crazy4Smiths:

In our match-ups will will not post anything that isn’t permitted or that skirts the rules.
