The word is spreading about Ibotta, a popular app that lets you receive rebates when you shop, so we want to make sure that you have all the information you need to get started. If you have an smartphone with iOS or Android you can use Ibotta. First, register here. Then you can download the app onto your phone and get started. And one more thing: when you refer a friend to Ibotta you get a $5 referral fee when your friend redeems his or her first offer. Just a few of the participating stores are Target, Walmart, RiteAid, CVS, Walgreens and 7-Eleven.
Ibotta is a free mobile application available to iOS and Android users that allows shoppers to earn cash back on their favorite products. Simply log in to the Ibotta app, choose your favorite category (i.e. grocery, restaurant, apparel, etc), complete fun tasks, purchase the product and take a picture of your receipt. It’s that easy! And you might as well earn cash on purchasing you’re already making.
Ibotta users can also earn cash back at online retailers like Nordstrom, Sephora, Birchbox, Shutterfly, Radioshack and more.
How Ibotta Works
Step 1: Unlock Rebates
Choose your favorite rebates and unlock them by completing fun tasks.
Step 2: Shop & Redeem
After shopping, tap on Redeem to verify your purchases. Ibotta even works at certain stores via loyalty cards. These stores are considered Ibotta Preferred Partners. At checkout, make sure to use your loyalty card or provide your phone number, and Ibotta will handle the rest
Step 3: Get Cash
The best part about Ibotta is that you earn real money, not points. And 100% of your earnings can be transferred to PayPal or Venmo as soon as you’ve earned $5. If you’d like a gift card instead, you can start cashing out as soon as you’ve earned $2.
