As grocery and store prices continue to increase, ibotta is an amazing way to save – without the hassle of clipping coupons. You can use it both in-store (my favorite) or for online shopping. And the best part? It’s FREE and right now they’ll give you a $10 bonus just for signing up and submitting your first receipt!
1.) First thing is first, head over and download the ibotta app here – in order to get the $10 sign up bonus you need to be referred by a friend (me) and it may ask for a referral code – that’s cybbaa You can see from the ratings (there are millions) that the app is a fan favorite!
2.) Once you download the app, create an account, you can choose from thousands of retailers – just add to your account by hitting the + sign. Some of my favorites are – Target, Costco, Fred Meyer, QFC, Safeway, Albertsons, and Trader Joe’s.
3.) For some retailers you can link your store loyalty account to ibotta – which is the easiest way to earn cash back (no receipt required). To link a loyalty account – select your favorite retailer and if you see a Link at the top of screen, tap it and enter your account info! Once it’s linked you can add offers to the ibotta app before you shop. . .then when you shop, use your loyalty card and your iBotta savings automatically get added to your ibotta cash back! I was able to do this for Target!
4.) Then before you shop, check out the promotions for the store you’ll be going to – add them to your account.
5.) When you are done shopping, submit your receipt (you just take a photo with your phone) and it will add account cash back for all the qualifying items on your receipt!
I like that ibotta only requires a $20 minimum for payout and it pays you via PayPal! They also run a lot of other promotions that are seasonal or store-specific! Stay tuned for more ibotta promos!
