As much as I love clipping coupons, sometimes it does get a bit tedious and stressful. Between lugging the binder to the store and never having coupons for some of my regularly purchased items, saving money on your grocery bill can be a full time job! For years I resisted signing up for Ibotta. I thought it was a waste of time, and just one more thing to add to my already full plate.
I like to see big savings, and getting $0.50 here or there was not cutting it for me. I’ve tried many money saving apps before, and most of them weren’t worth the effort or time. I’d either spend hours trying to scan items, receipts, and barcodes for a measly amount of savings. Finally, I caved. I tried Ibotta. Now, I don’t know how I ever lived without it!
If you’re too busy to coupon, or prefer paperless coupons, I highly recommend you give Ibotta a try!
What is Ibotta
For those of you who are new to the app, Ibotta is a free app you can download right to your smartphone that will allow you to redeem rebates, and earn cash back on products you’re already buying. Rewards can be anywhere from as little as $0.25 to as much as $4.00! You can redeem rebates from hundreds of different retailers including Harris Teeter, Target, Walmart, CVS, and so much more!
How Ibotta Works
Here’s a step-by-step guide to how to use Ibotta:
- Do your shopping just like you normally would
- Open the Ibotta app (or download it if you don’t already have it)
- Select your store and browse the rebates for items you’ve purchased
- Next, tap the item and click the + button underneath the item description
- Then, tap Verify your purchase and upload a photo of your receipt
- Submit to Ibotta and get paid!
How to Get Paid
After submitting for a rebate, you’ll get cash back within at least 24 hours. Once you have $20 in your account you can cash out for a gift card or cash via PayPal!
