NEW iBotta App – Earn cash back on your groceries and household goods! (like Endorse, but better!)

There is a new cashback app in town called Ibotta, and it looks pretty fantastic! You select the items you want to earn cash back on from their list, complete a few tasks (learn a fact, take a poll, share on Facebook, play trivia, and watch a video are the options I see) – you get to choose what you want to do, and it tells you how much you will earn before doing it. You can complete as many as three tasks for any given item (most have three available), and the values start at $0.25 and go up from there.

Payout is at $5 – right into your Paypal account – not bad at all!

So here are the steps you’ll take…

  1. Sign up for iBotta
  2. Complete the tasks for the products you plan to buy
  3. Shop at Walmart, Target, or Walgreens (more stores planned)
  4. Take a Photo of your receipt
  5. Get paid when your account balance is at $5

The best part about this is that you CAN use manufacturer’s coupons to save even more! 

They include lots of everyday items – Jif Peanut Butter, Smucker’s, Eggland’s Best, Quaker Instant Oatmeal, Oroweat Bread, Gold Peak Tea, and KC Masterpiece are all in my list right now. Go sign up and see what offers they have for you, here are a few deals I found at Target yesterday…

    What about us folks who don’t even have the money to pay for a smart phone? :( These apps are great but would love if there was a low tech way to do this.

  2. Faith says

    I also agree. I can’t afford a phone at all and know I can’t do Endorse. I wish they would let us also mail them in like before for those that don’t have a phone.

  3. Shelley says

    Ibotta says that until you have your own smartphone, you should borrow a friend’s phone and create your own Ibotta acct! I know that’s not a great answer, but it is one solution :)

    I love this app! I just started using it last week and with the bonus I already have $14! Just from buying stuff I would normally but and using manufacturers coupons on top of that too.
