Ibotta – Get Paid Cash back on your everyday Groceries
Ibotta is this great app that you can use on an iPhone or Android phone and it has tons of offers for products that you would usually buy anyways. Here is why it is so GREAT! It pays you CASH BACK for the products it has featured!! It is so easy to use and it pays you back usually with 15 mins of redeeming and offer.
CURRENTLY you will earn a $2.00 Bonus for signing up and claiming your first offer within your first 2 weeks.
HOW TO GET STARTED
Once you are logged in you will be greeted with lots of products from toothpaste to juice and anything in between. Most offers are over $1.00
Tap on a product and you will see 3 tasks to complete, SUPER EASY, usually learn a fact about the product, take a quick poll and share on Facebook. Each task you complete gets you to that total amount you can earn for that product, make sure you do all of them before redeeming or you will not get the full amount. They also now offer Online Cashback offers. Your shopping must begin with them in order to get the payment.
Once you have claimed your first few items and get to $5, you can cash out. The Minimum Payout is $5.00
They pay you through Paypal, Venmo and several Gift Card Options like Starbucks.
HOW TO REDEEM OFFERS
Ok so you have purchased an item that was in the offers and you get home, DO NOT LOSE YOUR RECEIPT!! And keep that barcode handy also on the product, or verify the product in the store.
Get yourself a spot that the receipt will stay well lit lying flat on a counter or table, tap on redeem for the product you purchased, it will have you take a picture of your receipt, if the receipt is long make sure you keep adding sections until you have the full thing, this is VERY IMPORTANT.
After you have finished with the receipt it will have you scan the barcode to confirm you purchased the proper item (NOTE: you can do this is the store before buying also when on the offer screen by tapping the barcode in the top right corner, so you know your buying the right thing)
Once everything is confirmed it will submit it, I’ve noticed Wal-mart receipts credit super fast and I think that is due to the fact of how much detail they include on the line items. 🙂
Now just sit back and wait for a notification that you have been paid!
TEAMS!! Thats right your and your facebook friends that use Ibotta are a team now. As long as you claim 1 offer in a month, and the rest of your friends claim offers that all together total at least $10 in offers, you will earn $1.00 for the Monthly Teamwork Challenge. This started June 2014 and my friends hit that by the 2nd week so you can see you will get that extra $1 usually pretty easy.
