Ibotta Pays Cash on Products You’re Already Buying

by Freebies4Mom on October 23, 2012 3:06 pm

IbottaSign-up for Ibotta and get CASH rebates on products you’re already buying at Target, Walmart, Walgreens, Duane Reade (more stores coming soon). I used Ibotta for the first time today at Walmart, and I was impressed with how easy it was to get a $1.00 rebate on each of the two International Delight products I purchased. I used Ibotta while shopping and then snapped a photo of my receipt. This is the best way to get cash rebate on products you normally buy, so I encourage you to try it and let me know what you think! I hope you are as impressed as I was and will start using Ibotta every time you shop.

Here’s how Ibotta works to pay you cash when you buy participating products:

1. Sign-up for an Ibotta account with your email address or Facebook account. You’ll be asked for your name, email, birth date, zipcode, and gender. Watch for a confirmation email.

2. Download the free Ibotta iTunes App (or Android users sign-up to find out when the Android App will be released – it’s coming soon!)

3. Look for participating products the next time you shop at Target, Walmart, Walgreens, or Duane Reade (more stores coming soon!). I saw 64 participating products in my Ibotta App so hopefully there is something for everyone to get a cash rebate on!

4. Click “Earn” under a product you are buying and complete the simple activities (like a poll, fact, trivia, or watch an ad)

5. Scan and submit your receipt using the camera on your mobile (it’s easier to do than it sounds, they give you tips to get a good photo of your receipt)

6. Get paid within 24 hours (usually much faster than that!) and send your money to your Paypal account (when you’ve got at least $5.00) or Donate to any School ($1.00 minimum, every quarter a check is written directly to the school)


Ibotta has great customer service so if you have a question please visit the Help Center? on the Ibotta App, the Ibotta Facebook Page, or the Ibotta Support Center on their website.

Ask me questions or share your tips on using Ibotta. I hope this program will be a new and easy way for you to get more cash rebates. If you love it, you should definitely share it with your friends because you’ll be rewarded with a $1.00 cash referral bonus when you invite new users who sign-up. I have my friend Luv 2 Be Frugal to thank for introducing me to Ibotta. This post contains my referral links, please visit my Disclosure Policy.

Kaela –

You won’t have to wait for long – the release of the Android App should be just around the corner!

LOVING ibotta so far! I sent you a fb post because, oddly enough, when I saw the $1 referral offer I IMMEDIATELY thought of you (is that super sad and stalkerish, hahaha). I hope you’ve gotten a lot of the referrals and people signing up because I REALLY, REALLY like it! I used coupons for stuff I would have purchased anyway, and then I got paid for it! $11 last week! Just wanted to share from someone who’s actually doing it and loves it so far!

Heather –

I’m so glad you love Ibotta! I like that is so easy (and fast) to get your rebate money (and yes, I’ve gotten a few referrals – thanks for thinking of me!)

No, you don’t have to have a Smartphone, but you do need to have a mobile that can accept the one text message they send you to activate your account.

Does it still pay you if you use a coupon for the products on the list?


Freebies4Mom October 24, 2012 at 8:55 am

YES, Ibotta still pays you the cash rebate if you used a coupon on the product you’re submitting for a rebate.
