That is a question I get a lot, so I wanted to post another tutorial for those of you who haven’t yet started using ibotta. Additionally, they have updated a lot of the features, so you may need to familiarize yourself with these.
ibotta is a free smart phone app that lets you earn real money for items you purchase at many store nationwide, including Kroger! As of right now, there is no policy against stacking paper coupons to really maximize your savings!
:: CHOOSE OFFERS
When you open Ibotta, click on Grocery (or Restaurant or Home Improvement) and choose your store. You’ll see Ibotta Offers in the Product Gallery. Each store will not only include offers that are available everywhere, but will sometimes have store exclusives. Choose a product and complete one or more of the tasks for each offer. The more tasks you complete, the more pending cash you will add to your account. Unlock these earnings by purchasing the product in a selected store.
Offers expire so don’t forget to redeem them before they’re gone!
Tell them your likes and dislikes and you’ll get more personalized offers (do this by clicking on the coupon image and then choosing “not interested in this product”.)
:: GO SHOPPING
After choosing offers by completing tasks, offers will be added to your Pending list. Buy these items at any of the over 50 retailers where Ibotta works. Be sure to check your favorite stores to find exclusive offers that are only available at select stores.
:: VERIFY PURCHASES
Ibotta will verify your purchases and send you cash within 24 hours. Depending on the store, there are two ways to verify purchases:
If the store selected shows Redeem in the Product Gallery, take a picture of your receipt and follow the instructions.
If the store is an Ibotta Preferred Partner, it’s even easier – choose Link Account and register your loyalty card or phone number. At checkout, use your loyalty card or phone number, and they’ll handle the rest!
:: EARN CASH
The best part about Ibotta is that you earn real money, not points or other made-up currencies. What you see is what you get. To get your cash, just link your Ibotta account with PayPal, or create a new PayPal account within the App. 100% of your Ibotta earnings can be transferred to PayPal as soon as you’ve earned $5. You can also take advantage of other exciting Cash Out options, which include Gift Cards from iTunes, Redbox, Starbucks and more.
