There are SO many good apps that Couponers use. The App that I’m featuring this week is called Ibotta.
Ibotta is an app that gives you cash back for buying a specific product. I LOVE this app because It allows me ‘stack’ even more savings on a particular item. This means you can use the manufacturer coupon on an item, a store coupon on an item, and after you purchase it you can submit it to Ibotta for money back! You simply buy the item, select the rebate, take a picture of the receipt and wait for you money to be awarded to your account.
The first thing you have to do is to Register with Ibotta Here and then you can download the app and sign into your account.
As you can see it features such a variety of Options for you to receive a rebate on, Movies, Restaurants, Photos, Online Shopping, Big Box Stores, Pets, Home Improvement and so much more!
Next you can slide through and find the offers you want to use – I used the Zevia offer (a new addiction of mine!) They often have the Eggs featured in the picture above, or even cash back on a gallon of milk purchase.
Once you select the Offer you have to go through the little circles at the bottom in order to redeem it. Usually a Fact to Learn, Poll to Vote in, or Video to watch. Occasionally you will see a “tweet it” like the one pictured (Ibotta is the sole reason I have a twitter account!)
Once you are done with this you click “Redeem” at the Bottom of the screen. This will Prompt you to take a photo of the Receipt and then scan the product. Once you are done you can Submit it. Ibotta usually credits your account within the next few hours. Once you hit their minimum amount to withdraw you can then select the way you would like to get your money (this can even include gift cards!)
There is also the opportunity to earn “Bonuses” (the little trophy in the bottom right corner) this means if you complete the offers or tasks within the separate “Bonuses” that are featured you can get even more cash back!
*Update April 2015* These bonuses include the ibotta Teamwork bonuses! How the teamwork bonus works is you individually have to redeem $X amount of rebates during that month (you have all month) AND your team has to redeem $X amount of rebates (so the more people on your team the more likley you are to get the bonus) Once both have occured you get the amount for that month. Generally there are 4 tiers to the ‘teamwork bonus’ which means you have 4 times to earn extra bonus money each month. If you want to join my team be sure to sign up here. For example This month (April 2015) Teamwork tier 1 bonus was $5.00, tier 2 bonus was $5.00, tier 3 bonus $3.00 and tier 4 bonus $2.00 for a total of an extra $15.00 if all four tiers are completed (this is on top of the rebates you were already getting!)
It is that simple! I would HIGHLY recommend that anyone who wants to maximize savings with little effort to sign up for Ibotta (I will include when a good coupon offer can be paired with an Ibotta offer under the coupon match ups!)
I use this app all the time! Along with quite a few others – I will be featuring Checkout 51 Next Week.
Other Apps I use that will be featured in the Weeks to come:
Swagbucks & Swag TV (I know this is a website – but I actually get between $25-$45 a month from this site, so It is definitely worth mentioning just from searching & watching Videos while I cook/clean!)
Favado & Lots More – I think if I keep listing them you will be overwhelmed (I know I was at first!) That is why I’m explaining one each week.
If you want to get a Jump start and start earning on all of them then just follow the links!
