How To Use Ibotta: Cool New Money Saving App & Step By Step Instructions

This new app will save you tons of money!

Have you checked out the new "ibotta" app? Ibotta is an easy to use app the offers ways to earn extra money on various purchases. You'll find offer for cash back on groceries, restaurants and more.


Ibotta gives you the opportunity to get cash back on popular items you are likely going to buy anyway. You can also learn about new products by taking polls, reading facts or watching short videos.

I have had the opportunity to play with this app and it is very user friendly and clutter free.

Here's step by step instructions on how it works.

1- Go here and download the app.

2- Choose your offers - There are "cash back" offers for products like Coke products, Kool Aid, Jif Peanut Butter, Capri Sun & many more!
Don't be afraid of the surveys, they are usually just one question that pertains to the product.

3- Make your qualifying purchase at Target, Walmart or Walgreens
**Ibotta app has a handy bar code reader. There's no guessing if it's the correct product. Simply scan the bar code in the store and you'll know for sure if your purchase qualifies for the cash back offer.

4- Take a picture of your receipt and send.
**Ibotta app provides edge and logo guides, so you know you will be sending the correct information.

I received notice of my money earned in less than 1 hour!

5- Request your payout.

Once you’ve reached at least $5 in earnings, Ibotta lets you transfer your earnings directly to your PayPal account or donate it to any school in America.

After you redeem an offer it will be replaced with new offers, so you can keep earning and earning!

      They have expiration dates so, you can do it later as long as it hasn't expired. Also, there are a limited number available. You'll want to make sure to claim any offers you want by completing the tasks right away because sometimes they run out.
  2. I've puchased some of the products and match them with the barcode scanner, but fail to see an opportunity to send a receipt. Am I missing something? Marty
