The e-coupon site, Ibotta , is now working at Whole Foods. They are even offering an extra $2.00 bonus if you redeem 4 offers from a single trip to Whole Foods. If you haven't signed up for Ibotta and you are looking for a new and unique way to save even more on your groceries, read on.
Basically, you earn cash back for redeeming e-coupon offers using your mobile device.
Here's how it works:
1. First you need to go to their website and sign up. Then you will need to download the ibotta app they will send you via e-mail, Google or Facebook. It's easy and free.
Once you download the app, look through the e-offers and decide which ones you want. To add the offer to your account, you need to complete an easy task like watching a short video, read a recipe or post it to your Facebook account. It varies per offer. 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 (including drug stores, Harris Teeter, Target and many more).
3. Take a photo of your receipt. They will then verify your purchases and credit your Paypal 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 and Whole Foods.
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.
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.
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 deposit the money into my ibotta account the next day.
