Here’s a summary on how to earn money via the Ibotta App:
Before you head out to shop, browse through all the different product offers. To earn cash, you’ll need to purchase these products… BUT FIRST, you’ll have to unlock these money-earning offers 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 at over 100,000 locations and at over 80 different retailers (like Target, Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid and many more stores!) in the United States. 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 even further! 🙂
Be sure to check out the product detail page on the app itself in order to view the offer’s details including the size you’ll need to purchase, expiration date etc. Once you unlock a rebate, the expiration date can be found on both your checklist and in the Ibotta Product Gallery (tap on the item to reveal the expiration date). Once a product is on the Checklist, Ibotta ensures that the expiration date of a product will not change.
Please note that all qualifying receipts must be submitted before the product rebates expire AND receipt submissions are only accepted as valid if submitted within one week of purchase.
After you make your in-store purchases, you’ll just need to upload your receipt via the Ibotta app. Ibotta will then verify your purchases and determine whether credit should be added to your account within 24 hours. In many cases, you will receive word from Ibotta in under 1 hour. It is super simple to upload your photo and money was added to my account within an hour. Very cool!
Once you’ve reached at least $20 in earnings, Ibotta lets you transfer funds to PayPal/Venmo; and once funds are withdrawn from the app, you should expect to see payment within 24 hours. You can also take advantage of other options, like gift cards from Amazon, Starbucks, Kohl’s, and more.
