What Is Ibotta? How To Use Ibotta App {New Users Get FREE $5 Cash!}

Have you heard of Ibbota yet?  If you haven’t downloaded this awesome money saving app, you’re missing out!  But then again – that’s why we’re here to tell you all about it and help you start putting money BACK in your pocket!  This is AWESOME for us coupon lovers because we can combine this app with coupons and sales to get EVEN better prices! Sweetness! 

The Ibotta App can be downloaded with Android and iPhone / iPad / iPod devices. Head over here to download the app and by using our link you’ll get a $5 bonus added to your account after redeeming an offer!  Plus for every friend you refer, they will get $5 and you’ll get $1 added! :) the $5 bonus has ended

After you download the app, you’ll want to browse through the offers that are available.  New offers are being added all the time as well as new retailers.  You’ll be able to select offers for items you would normally purchase: then learn facts, take a poll, share on Facebook, watch videos and more to increase the amount of money you’ll be getting back!  Then you’ll purchase these items at selected participating retailers to receive that amount of money added to your Ibotta account.

Select all the offers of items that you’re planning on purchasing.  {NOTE: Some items sell out quickly on the app and each have specific expiration dates so you’ll want to add to your Ibotta account before they are gone}  Once selected you can purchase those items (even on sale with coupons and store-rewards) to redeem the offer.  There are over 25 participating retailers currently and more being added all the time.  Some of the most popular ones on the list are:  Target, CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Rite Aid, Kroger, Safeway, Publix, US Commissary, 7-Eleven and MORE!

All you have to do then is take a picture of your receipt from the participating store and upload it on the Ibotta App.  They will verify what you’ve purchased is what was offered and typically within 24-hours you’ll receive credit for the purchase in your Ibotta Account!    Then you can cash out (via PayPal) or donate to local schools or the United Way!

  1. I have a question… If the reward from ibotta is $1.00 for an item and I buy 3 of that item, do I get $3.00?? Or is it only $1.00 for the first item purchased?

  2. is there a way to do this if you dont have an i phone—i mean can u get offers from a website and then take a pic from a cell and send via text ect

    • Unfortunately at this time it’s only available on certain apple and android devices. I’m not sure when and if they will be expanding to other ways.
