I’ve been hearing a lot of talk about a new app called iBotta and I’m guessing you might have heard about it too. Although I don’t personally own a smartphone, I wanted to take the time out to learn more about this app since many of you do and it sounds like a way you can save even more money on top of sales and coupons you already use.
Once you’ve signed up for iBotta (it’s FREE), you can earn cash back by doing small tasks for the items you plan on buying at select stores. These tasks may include things such as playing a trivia, watching a video, taking a poll, or sharing on Facebook. You’ll know ahead of time the amount of cash you’ll receive back for the tasks you choose to do.
Currently, the app is good at the following stores: Target, Walmart, Kroger, Safeway, Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, Meijer, Fred Meyer, Pavilions, Tom Thumb, Stop & Shop, Pick ‘n Save, Dominicks, Fry’s, Smith’s, ShopRite, Dillons, H-E-B, Publix, King Soopers, Ralphs, Vons, Duane Reade. Frugal Living NW also reported yesterday that WinCo has been added. My guess is that it will continue to expand!
Here’s how to get started:
- Sign up for your FREE iBotta account using this invitation link
- Download the app on your iPhone or Android phone through the app store
- Open the app and choose the products you intend to buy and complete the tasks
- From there, you’ll need to purchase the item(s) listed on the app, “redeem” and take a picture of your receipt
- When your account hits $5, you’ll be paid via your PayPal account. That’s it!
Here’s reason to get started with this NOW: for a limited time only, you’ll receive a $5 cash bonus when you’ve successfully redeemed your first offer!
While I’ve not tried to use it myself, I’m sharing it with you now because of the good reports I’m hearing about how user friendly it is to use and how lucrative the cash back offers are. In the next few days, I’ll do my best to borrow my hubby’s iphone and give it a try myself. In the meantime, I would love it if those of you that are able to would give it a try and report back! I’d love to hear YOUR experience.
I’m going to do my best to learn more myself to start including iBotta deals here at The Coupon Project.
