Why I LOVE Ibotta!
I love, and I do mean LOVE, Ibotta. What is Ibotta, you ask? It is a wonderful app for my phone that I use after shopping to earn money back on purchases. I started using the app June 15, 2013, and by the end of the year I had earned $139.75 with very little effort. It is very simple to use. You simply download the app to your smartphone or android. Review the offers listed and complete the activities. Some of the activities are posting to Facebook or sending a tweet about a product. Both of these tasks are extremely simple to do once you like your Ibotta, Facebook and Twitter accounts. Other activities are watching a short video or reading a recipe or even giving your opinion in a brief statement. Some of the products i have earned money for purchasing are any brand of milk, eggs, orange juice, Wasa crackers, Colgate, Kleenex, Cottonelle, and so many more than I can mention. Ibotta offers can be redeemed from a variety of over fifty locations, including grocery stores, drug stores, big box stores and now even movie theaters and selected restaurants. Check the list on the app to see if there are retailers near you. Many retailers will also have selected offers that are good only for that retailer. In addition to the general offers, Ibotta often has bonus offers that add additional earnings to your total.
So you want to know how this magic happens? Do you shopping, check your offers and make sure you have completed all activities to earn cash back, then simply scan your store receipt. Next you choose the products on the receipt that have rebates and scan the UPC code of those items. Hit submit and you are done. The validation of the receipt and items is amazingly quick. The money goes into your Ibotta account and once you have accumulated a minimum of $5 you can have it transferred to your Paypal account. You also have the choice of gift cards. You can get a $10 gift card for Regal Entertainment Group, or $10 Itunes. You also can get $5 Starbucks card or a $2 Redbox movie rental.
