Get Cash Back Everywhere You Shop
A few weeks ago a fellow blogging friend, Kim from Get Green Be Well, posted about this nifty new savings ap that could save me money at the grocery store. I’m always a little leery about these kind of things, but after researching and checking it out, I thought I would at least give it a try and see how it goes.
Fast forward to today and I can say I’m having fun with Ibotta. I just need to remember to actually use it though. I think I’ve probably missed a couple deals, but after my savings yesterday at Target, I think I’m going to be on the ball and use it a lot more.
How it Works
1. Join Ibotta – signing up for Ibotta is quick and easy. You can do it online or even on your phone
2. Unlock Rebates – Before you go shopping, go online or on your app, unlock cash back rewards on the products you need.
3. Shop Online – Use the Shop Now button on Ibotta.com to visit your favorite retailer websites and make purchases (I haven’t tried this yet)
4. Get Cash – One you make the purchase and than verify you purchases (more info on that on the web site – it’s easy though), your purchase will be verified and deposited into your account.
You can also link up certain loyalty cards to save even more.
Once you have enough money in your account, you can Cash Out in which you have different options to where you want your money to go, like a PayPal account or a gift card.
My Last Minute Target Run
Yesterday, I decided to swing into Target to grab a few things. While there, I remembered the Ibotta app and quickly found a few deals!
One of the things I love about this app is that some of the products/items you buy are general – not brand specific. For instance, Bananas – I’m always buying organic bananas and with the Ibotta app I am able to save $.20 every time I do! It’s not a ton of money, I know, but it adds up.. we eat a lot of Bananas.
Another great thing is you can also use regular coupons ON TOP of these rebates.
I had a coupon for the So Delicious Almond Bars, so not only did I receive a $1.00 rebate via Ibotta, I also saved an immediate $1.00 off with my paper coupon! Cha-Ching!
The app takes a little getting used to and if you’re like me, you have to remember to use it, but so far.. I’m having fun earning a little extra cash!
Are you an Ibotta member? If so, leave me a comment and let me know how you’re liking it or what great deals you have found!
