If you’re a fan of the FREE Ibotta app (one of my favorite money-earning apps available for both iPhones and Androids!), have you noticed the new update that has taken place? Ibotta 2.0 offers many great new features!
The offers page has been updated and hopefully that will make it easier for us to follow what offer is available where. All offers are now listed under a particular store. When you begin to look at available offers, choose a store, as you browse the available offers, item’s marked with an “Exclusive” tag are available at that particular store only. All other offers can be redeemed at any participating store!
Along with getting cash back at grocery stores, we can now also get cash back at restaurants and more! Currently you can earn cash back at Smashburger and Chili’s, what a great way to make eating out more affordable, especially when paired with coupons! 😀
And one of my favorite new things….you can cash out your earnings by snagging a gift card or you can still choose to receive your cash through PayPal. Currently, you can snag a Starbucks :), Redbox or iTunes Gift Card, when you have met the minimum cash out requirement. Sounds good to me!
Plus, as always make sure to look for new Ibotta product offers! And if you haven’t signed up yet, be sure read more about this fantastic FREE app at the bottom of this post! 🙂
Check out a couple of my favorite new offers below:
*Earn $0.50 cash back when you buy Del Monte Fruit Cup Snacks 4 ct
*Earn $0.50 cash back when you buy Skippy Peanut Butter 12 oz or larger
*Earn $0.75 cash back when you buy 1 gallon White Milk – WooHoo! 😀

Here’s how it works:
Head over here and download the Ibotta app for FREE.
Before you head out to shop, browse through the different offers in the Product Gallery found after selecting a store. 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 50 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.
When you open Ibotta, you’ll see Ibotta Offers . Choose a product and complete one or more of the tasks for each offer. The more tasks you complete, the more pending cash you will add to your account. Unlock these earnings by purchasing the product in a selected store.
Once you have activated all of the items you intend to purchase, go shopping! Your offers will be added to your Pending list. Purchase your items at any of the over 50 retailers where Ibotta works. And, be sure to check your favorite stores to find exclusive offers that are only available at select stores. The expiration date for each offer can be found on both your Pending list and in the Ibotta Product 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.
Upon return from the store, select “Redeem” in the lower right-hand corner of the Ibotta Product Gallery. 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).
Ibotta will verify your purchases and send you cash within 24 hours. Depending on the store, there are two ways to verify purchases:
*If the store selected shows Redeem in the Product Gallery, take a picture of your receipt and follow the instructions.
*If the store is an Ibotta Preferred Partner, it’s even easier – choose Link Account and register your loyalty card or phone number. At checkout, use your loyalty card or phone number, and we’ll handle the rest!
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. Or, when you reach the required payout amount you can also redeem your earnings for gift cards! 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.
