Are you using your smartphone to help you save money? If not, why not? I use apps like Ibotta to earn cash back on my grocery purchases. Here is an explanation of how the Ibotta app works:
Ibotta is a shopping and cash back app that you can upload to your iPhone or android phone. After you have signed up, Ibotta will show you coupons directly on your phone. No need to print, just buy the items you wish, then redeem the coupons by scanning the receipt with your phone. Ibotta deposits the money from the coupons you redeem in your PayPal account. To use and redeem iBotta coupons go to Ibotta and sign up for an account.
Here's How the Ibotta App Works:
1. Before shopping, choose the offers you are interested in and unlock the rebates. (If you are disorganized, you can also do this in the store while you are shopping).
2. Go Shopping. Buy your chosen products at any of the major retailers that Ibotta supports.
3. Redeem your cashback reward.
4. Then Ibotta will verify your purchases and credit your account within 24 hours.
4. Get your cash. Once your account has $5.00, you can transfer it to your PayPal account or donate it to any school in America.
How to Redeem Your Ibotta Rebates:
Ibotta will verify your purchases and send you cash usually within 24 hours. Depending on the store, there are three ways to verify purchases.
If the store shows the green Verify Purchases button in the Retailer Gallery, you must scan your barcode and submit your receipt by tapping on the button.
If the store is an Ibotta Preferred Partner, you can verify offers without receipts.
Some of the retailers will require you to scan a QR code (Best Buy) or a barcode (Marc's) in order to verify your rebates.
Submit Receipts that are less than 7 days old. Make sure that receipts submitted to Ibotta are less than 7 days old. Old receipts will be rejected and can trigger an account deactivation. Of course, we don't want this to happen!
More Ibotta Awesomeness: Because of the way Ibotta works, you can use Ibotta coupons with other coupons. Use your regular printable, manufacture, store coupons at the time of purchase and then submit your receipt to Ibotta to receive credit for their coupons as well.
Bonus from Ibotta:
All new users who sign up for Ibotta can earn a $10.00 Welcome Bonus if you redeem an offer within the first 30 days of registering for Ibotta. You will find Welcome Bonus details under Bonuses from the Main Menu of the Ibotta app, but here is some information about them:
More Bonus Offers from Ibotta:
