I am loving the Ibotta app!  I see it as free money!

Here’s how it works:

1. From your smart phone install the Ibotta app

2. When you see an offer you like you do the tasks associated with it.  Generally each takes just seconds- watch a short ad, take a poll, share on Facebook.  Each task has a different value.

3. When you buy the item at a participating store (not all offers are valid at every store some are only good at select locations and others are good at any participating stores)- you scan your receipt with the app.   If the receipt is too long for one image you can take multiple images.

4. Sometimes the app will have you scan the bar code of the product you purchased.

5. It can take up to 24 hours to see the deposit in your account.  When you get $5 in your ibotta account you can have the money sent to your paypal account.

Here is a list of participating stores:

7-Eleven
BI-LO
CityMarket
CVS Pharmacy
Dillons
Dollar General
Dominicks
Duane Reade
Family Dollar
Food 4 Less
Fred Meyer
Fry’s
Giant Eagle
H-E-B
Harris Teeter
Hy-Vee
Ingles Markets
King Soopers
Kroger
Meijer
Pathmark
Pavilions
Pick ‘N Save
Publix
QFC
Ralphs
Randalls
RiteAid
Safeway
ShopRite
Smith’s
Stop & Shop
Target
Tom Thumb
United States Armed Forces Commissary
Vons
Walgreens
Walmart
Wegmans
WinCo Foods
Winn-Dixie

 

A few tips:

*Some offers are very specific be sure to buy the correct item or your rebate will not go through

*Be sure to keep your receipt until the money is deposited

* Be sure to keep the product with barcode intact until the money is deposited.
