IBOTTA: Why it’s my new favorite shopping app

0

You’re buying groceries already, right? You might as well get some money back! Now is the time to join Ibotta if you haven’t already! Ibotta (the easiest grocery reward app there is!) is offering new members a $10 SIGN UP BONUS! You just need to redeem one rebate and you’ll get the $10 bonus!

A few reasons why we are loving shopping app Ibotta and how you can use it to earn cash back on your purchases at the grocery store!

 

How Ibotta works:

1. Download the Ibotta App
Download the Ibotta app, available on iOS and Android. The app is required to submit a receipt.

2. Unlock Rebates
Before you go shopping, unlock cash rewards on great products by completing simple tasks. Usually you just complete a one question poll, or read a recipe, or watch a short ad.

3. Go Shopping
Buy the products you’ve unlocked at any supported store.

4. Verify Your Purchases
Scan your product barcodes, then submit a photo of your receipt.

5. Get Cash 
You’ll have the cash deposited into your Ibotta account within 48 hours.

Why it is my favorite (and the easiest!) grocery shopping app:

We all buy groceries anyways, so we may as well get some cash back for completing a few steps. If there is something in the Ibotta App that was already on your shopping list, it’s a win all around!
  • I will do my shopping first, then check my app for rebates. This way I am not spending extra money on things I wasn’t going to buy already.
  • They also have “non-grocery” stores for rebates. I got $5.00 back for buying my printer ink. Every bit helps!
I scan my barcodes and snap a picture of my receipt as I’m putting groceries away. It only takes a few extra seconds and it’s so easy. I choose to have my cash deposited to my PayPal or Venmo account, but you can also choose gift cards!
The thing I love about Ibotta is that they offer rebates for THINGS I’M ALREADY BUYING! They often have fresh veggies, bread, eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, pasta sauce, bacon, etc. Many of their rebates are for “ANY BRAND” of food, so you can choose any brand bag of chips, or any brand carton of ice cream and still get the reward!

*Bonus: Badges and bonuses are offered on TOP of your rebates to give you an extra boost through your month. So, you can earn a few extra $$ for fulfilling rebates and get money back even faster!

If you haven’t tried it yet, I encourage you to sign up and give it a try. If you don’t like it or don’t feel it’s saving you money, you can just delete the app! Go HERE and sign up for an account!
