Everyone wants to save time and money when they shop. This can be accomplished by collecting coupons, which can be tedious. Some stores have apps that give users special deals and offers. The biggest limitation of these apps is they can only be used at one store.
Ibotta is a cash back rewards app that gives consumers a better way to save time and money when they shop. No matter what you are buying, or where you are buying it, if you start with Ibotta, you’ll receive cash back. Ibotta partners with hundreds of CPG brands and has over 75 partners like Uber, Postmates, Drizly, Overstock.com, Walmart.com, and some categories of Amazon.
To get started, you need to download the Ibotta app and set up an account. The app is free to download and use on iOS and Android devices. Some of the offers might be for in-store shopping, while others may be for online shopping. New users can receive up to $20 in Welcome Bonuses.
Next, start searching for offers for things you were already planning on buying. You might also find offers for products that are new to you and are tempting enough to give them a try. Add the offers you like and plan on using to your Ibotta app before you shop.
Now, you are ready to start shopping! You can earn cash back on groceries, things you buy from retail stores, bars, restaurants, and more. Make sure you hang on to your receipt when you are done shopping. The last step is to snap a photo of your receipt with your smartphone and upload it to the Ibotta app so it can be processed.
Later on, check your Ibotta account. That is where you can find your cash reward for the specific items you purchased. You can earn extra cash with special bonuses and offers. Ibotta launches new offers each week, plus ongoing partnerships with top brands.
