Ibotta Review: What is Ibotta?
Ibotta is a FREE app that rewards you for shopping for brands you already purchase. One way Ibotta separates themselves from other money saving apps is you actually earn cash back. There is no point system for rewards where you are waiting for your points to add up to be able to claim your reward. Come on, who doesn’t want to earn some cash back?!
If you are a savvy shopper, you go where the best deal is. Ibotta provides you with the best deals. In our household, normally off brand products are the savvy way to go. However, Ibotta provides us with cash back on name brand products that make them the same price as off brand products. That is why Ibotta is perfect! Plus, we still earn cash back on items belonging to any type of brand.
Done are the days of clipping out coupons! Those “coupons” are now available through the app with no cutting or storing of the coupon. This app is seriously gold when it comes to saving money. Ibotta has team rebates where you work together to earn cash back.
For example: Let’s say you are on a team. If your team earns $10 in a month, and you earned $5, Ibotta will bonus you $2! The more your team works together to earn cash back, the more you are going to earn through the bonus tiers. Join the Savvy Spenders Team!
Ibotta Review: How does it work?
As you are preparing your grocery list, open the app and select products you plan on purchasing from your store. Buy the products at the participating store. Make sure to keep your printed store receipt and upload to the app. DONE!
Ibotta will take care of the rest! They will match what you have purchased to the receipt you have uploaded and boom! In less than 48 hours you will have the money in your account.
When your account reaches $20, you will be able to withdraw your money. If you open an account using our exclusive link, then you will get $10 to start. You will be so close to withdrawing your first $20!
Getting your money has never been more simple. If you use companies like PayPal or Venmo, you can just link your already existing accounts. This is my preferred method because I will have my cash back within 24 hours!
If you do not have either of those services, you can get your money transferred into gift cards. Some of my favorite places like Target, Walmart, iTunes, and Sephora have gift cards available.
Ibotta Review: Three ways to earn!
Uploading your store receipt is not the only way to earn using Ibotta. There are two more ways I need to tell you about.
I have a loyalty card at all of the places in my surrounding area I shop at. By linking my loyalty card to one of the matching stores on Ibotta, I earned even more. You use the same process as above. However, at the end when you go to finish your purchase you will be prompted to add your card by scanning it or adding the phone number linked to the account.
The last way to earn is one of my favorites because we do a lot of online shopping. Search through the cash back offers and hit “shop”. The participating app is where the final purchase will need to take place. You will then get notified of your pending rebate.
Ibotta Review: Download now!
In the past, I have used other cash back apps like Checkout 51. The reason I switched over to Ibotta from Checkout 51 was that I was able to earn far more cash back. Ibotta is more versatile and allows for different ways to earn cash back than just uploading your grocery shopping receipt.
If you have not downloaded the Ibotta app yet, I am not sure what you are waiting for! This app is great for quick cash back on purchases that you are making on a daily basis. What I love most about the app is being able to connect other family and friends to the app and be able to work together to earn more cash back. So unique!
