Here’s how it works:
Head over here and download the Ibotta app for FREE.
Before you head out to shop, browse through all the different offers. You’ll earn money by watching quick videos, viewing recipes, taking polls, posting to your Facebook Wall etc. AND then actually going to the store to purchase these specific items. Note that Ibotta works in every Rite Aid, CVS, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, and over 35 other retailers in the United States and has plans to expand to even more retailers in the near future. The awesome part for all of us couponers, is that in addition to getting cash back on your purchases, you can also use manufacturer’s coupons to lower your out of pocket expense.
Once you have activated all of the items you intend to purchase, go shopping! The expiration date for each offer can be found on both your Checklist and in the Ibotta Product Gallery and Store Extras Gallery (tap on the item to reveal the expiration date). Additionally, if an offer is less than 5 days away from expiring, an “expiring” flag will be displayed and expiration date for those items as well.
Also note that you can receive Ibotta Product Offers that are exclusively available at specific retailers called Store Extras. From the Main Menu of the app, tap “Store Extras” to reveal all of the retail specific offers available to you to earn additional cash.
Upon return from the store, select “Redeem” in the lower right-hand corner of the Ibotta Product Gallery. From here, select the retailer you have purchased your items from. Read the tips, then select “Continue” at the bottom of the page. (Don’t forget to upload the entire receipt including the logo, date and total).
After uploading the receipt, check and barcode scan each item on the receipt available for redemption (Note: for iPod 4th generation and iPad2 users, you will not be prompted to barcode scan). Once submitted, your receipt is now on it’s way for review, and most receipts will receive credit within 24 hours!
Once you’ve reached at least $5 in earnings, Ibotta lets you transfer your earnings directly to your PayPal account. Choose Withdraw Cash from the main menu of the app, then select Get My Cash to link Ibotta to your PayPal account. How awesome is that?!
Be sure to tell Ibotta which offers you like and dislike by tapping the image of any product and choosing either thumbs-up or thumbs-down. Over time the app learns what kinds of products you prefer and offers them accordingly.
Also note that there is no limit on the number of offers you can redeem. Once you have successfully redeemed an offer, Ibotta immediately restocks your shelf with a new offer. The more offers you redeem, the more new offers you will see, and the more money you can earn.
