Ibotta is an app that offers cash back on grocery and household items including non-specific branded items such as produce, chips, soda, cookies, milk, eggs, etc. Check the app each week before you head to the grocery store to see what items you can save on! I like to look at my flyers and see what is on sale and my list of what I need. Then I try to match those items to Ibotta offers.
My favorite thing about Ibotta is the teamwork challenges. All of your Facebook friends are your teammates on Ibotta. You earn the teamwork bonuses if you redeem a certain number of rebates valued at $0.25 or more and your teammates also redeem a certain amount of rebates. After you and your team have meet the threshold you will receive a monetary bonus. Usually, every month the teamwork level 1 bonus is if you redeem 10 rebates valued at $0.25 or more and your team redeems $10.00 or more in rebates, you will all get a $1.00 bonus. Click the icon with the 3 lines in the upper corner of the app to find out which teamwork bonuses are currently available.
Here’s how to get cash back from Ibotta:
Go here to join Ibotta and download the app to your iPhone or Android Device
Once you create an account and download the app you will then be able to see the different offers they have.
You want to make sure you are looking under the store you are going to be shopping in. The offers are not the same for all stores.
You can click on the name of the store to see the offers for that particular chain. You can also use the search box to search by brand.
When you select an offer you will need to complete the short fact or quiz in order to add the offer to your Ibotta account. It is usually less than 30 seconds per offer.
Manufacturer coupons can be used with the Ibotta offers.
Once you have picked out all your offers and matched them to coupons and sales, head to your favorite store(s) to make your purchases.
After completing your purchase click on the redeem button at the center bottom of each offer or click the upper left hand corner of the app, where there are 3 small diagonal lines stacked, and select ‘redeem’. You will have to scan each item to verify that it is the correct item. Make sure you do this as soon as you unload your groceries. Then take a picture of your receipt with your phone and upload it into the Ibotta app. Once you reach $20.00 you can cash out immediately for Paypal.
A helpful feature of Ibotta is the barcode scanner. If you’re unsure whether you are matching the right product to the right offer, you can scan the barcode to verify. When you’re in the store just bring up the ibotta offer you’re trying to match and then click on the little barcode icon in the very top right corner. A scan window will open so you can scan the product and find out whether it’s a match.
