12 Do you ibotta?

ibotta...iwhata??? I make money shopping!

Have you ever heard of ibotta?  It is a cool app for your smart phone that earns you money for buying things you probably buy anyway!

How does it work?

  • First download the app to your iPhone or Android device. You can use the links below if you are reading this on your smartphone,

    Apple
    Droid
     
  •  Next Log in and go through the tutorial. 
  • Select all the products that interest you.  Complete some tasks, like reading facts, watching videos or posting the product on Facebook to earn money.

Time to Go Shopping!

  • When you get home from the store - select "Redeem" in the lower right hand corner of the Ibotta Product Gallery.

  •  Select the store you bought your items from.
 

  • Then take pictures of your receipt.  You have to include the whole receipt, so it often takes several pictures to get it ALL in!


  • You will be asked to check the items you purchased and scan the item's bar-code.  


  • Once submitted you receive the credit to your account in 24 hours.  (I have received all of mine within an hour!)

$$ Show Me the Money! $$

Once you’ve redeemed offers totaling $5 or more, 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.

Want to Donate the Money?

As soon as you’ve earned $1 with Ibotta, you can make a donation to United Way or any school in America.  Choose Withdraw Cash from the main menu of the app, then select Donate to United Way or Donate to Schools.  Ibotta can use your current location to find nearby schools, or you can type in any zip code and pull up a list of schools in that area. All United Way donations go to United Way Worldwide.

Invite Friend and you Both Earn More $$

Want to join? You can earn $5 if you click on the red circle below and set up an account today!


**Please note the $5 Friend referral sign up Bonus is Ending.  Sign up your friends by Friday January 11th, 2013 at 12 noon PST so they can still qualify for the $5 Friend Bonus.  Your friends will have until Thursday, January 17th at midnight PST to redeem their first successful offer and receive their $5 bonus. 


I love this easy way to earn some more money just for buying things I need anyway! I've already earned $15!!

Plus my favorite blogs have started including ibotta in the match-ups.  If you want to learn more about this, read my story here.

Let me know if you use ibotta or if this post convinced you to start!
I'd LOVE to hear from you!

Thanks for reading,
Sharon

    1. Not as many organic and fresh products yet but they are adding new products all the time since they are VERY new. As the app grows I'm sure other vendors will hop on board!
      Thanks for reading!

  6. I just tried to get the ibotta app, but it is telling me my device isn't compatible. :( I'd really like to be able to use it, so I emailed the developer's support. Has anyone else mentioned that issue?

  7. I just tried to download the app, but the Google Playstore is telling me my device isn't compatible with that version. I'd really like to be able to save money, so I emailed their developers to see if there is another version I can use. Has anyone else said they've had this issue?
