I spoke with Bill & Lynda on WRAL-FM 101.5 this morning and we talked about a new way to earn cash back for buying your groceries called ibotta! For those of you who read the blog often, you have probably already seen me post about this app. For those of you who have not seen this app, I think you are going to like it! I used it the other day to earn cash back for buying Eggos and Listerine.
Obviously, first you need to download the ibotta app on their website.
Here's how it works:
1. Before shopping, choose your offers. The more you choose, the more cash back you'll earn.
2. Go Shopping. Buy your chosen products at any of the major retailers that Ibotta supports.
3. Take a photo of your receipt. We'll verify your purchases and credit your account right away.
4. Get your cash. Yes, real money, loaded onto your PayPal account or donated to any school in America.
Participating stores: Ibotta works at 14 retailers including these stores in our area: Harris Teeter, Target, Walmart, Kroger, CVS, Walgreens.
You can increase the amount of your offer by doing different (easy) activities like taking a poll, liking the company on Facebook or reading a recipe.
Bonus $5!: Once you redeem your first successful offer, you'll receive an extra $5 in your account as part of their referral program when you sign up HERE and complete your first deal. The sign-up $5 bonus is only valid through Friday, 1/11 at 12 noon. You will then have a week to process your first deal to receive the bonus in your account.
Like Savingstar.com discounts, the money does not come off at the register. It is deposited into your Paypal account. You will need a Paypal account to get the money. If you prefer, you can also donate the money to a school of your choice.
Big benefit: You can use the ibotta savings in conjunction with manufacturers coupons and savingstar.com e-coupons so you can stack a number of different savings avenues.
If you use ibotta, please share your experiences. This app does require a little extra work as far as taking pictures of the receipts but it doesn't take too long and they deposited the money into my ibotta account the next day.
You can find out even more details about the program on their website in the Help Center HERE.
