Get Instant Cash Rebates from Ibotta

by Freebies4Mom on January 8, 2013 6:46 am

IbottaSign-up for Ibotta to earn cash rebates on products you’re already buying at Target, Walmart, Kroger, and 38 other retailers. Ibotta is so easy to use, just snap a photo of your receipt with a qualifying purchase on it. You’ll receive your cash almost instantly via PayPal. I browse Ibotta during every grocery shopping trip to see which products on my list I can get an instant rebate for.


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 or Android App

3. Look for participating products the next time you shop at 41 participating retailers. Usually there are over 50 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 and qualifying product UPC 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). You’ll receive your $5.00 bonus after you submit your first receipt with one qualifying product on it.

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.

Make up to $15 a week from Jingit (just watch ads)

by Freebies4Mom on September 20, 2012 6:30 am

JingitIt’s true – you can watch ads and earn money from Jingit (up to $15 per week if there are enough ads to view). I have readers who are hitting their weekly limits, and I myself have made an amazing $12.77 in only two days (without checking-in at a Walmart store). You can also earn Box Tops for your school!

I recommend signing-up TODAY and trying to earn $3.00 so that you can apply for the Jingit Debit cardRemember that’s not $3.00 cash out of your pocket – that’s $3.00 you’ve earned by watching ads with Jingit.

How to Sign-up for Jingit:

1. Visit Jingit on your computer

 -AND- Download the Jingit iTunes or Android App (but you don’t have to)

2. Fill out the Registration Form with your name, email, zip code, birthdate, and mobile number (you must have a Facebook account)

3. Verify your Registration with a verification code sent to your mobile number

4. Start watching ads! Just select “Next” after you watch an ad and answer survey questions. Remember to login several times a day to earn more for ads that have reset!

How do you earn money?
You can watch Jingit ads on your computer or on with the Jingit mobile app and then answer easy survey questions about the ad you just watched. You don’t have to use Jingit while you’re at Walmart, but if you “Check-In” with Jingit and scan products while at Walmart you can earn more money! My best tip for earning more money is login to Jingit several times each day because many ads reset and allow you to earn money again for watching them.

How much can you earn?
There is a $10.00 weekly earning limit but you can raise it to $15.00 by sharing Jingit with friends via Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Jingit features ads for national brands –  so it doesn’t matter where you live, you should be eligible to view most of the ads. It’s optional to do a Check-In at Walmart or scan products there – but you’ll earn more money if you do!

How do you use the money you’ve earned?
After you’ve earned at least $3.00 you can sign-up for the Jingit Visa Debit Card so you can transfer your earnings to a card you can spend them with. It’s important to note that there is a one-time enrollment fee which is why you need to wait until you’ve earned at least that fee before signing-up. So it’s not like you’re taking money out of your pocket for that $3.00 fee – because you earned it by watching ads. There is no monthly or annual fee and when you sign-up there is no credit check involved. I encourage you to visit the Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

Not using Ebates? Let me change your mind!

by Freebies4Mom on July 2, 2012 1:01 pm

EbatesHere are a few reasons why some of my readers are not using Ebates, a cash-back site, with my responses based on my own experience of shopping through Ebates for over 4 years.

1. “I’m skeptical because it sounds too good to be true”

It’s true! Ebates pays their members the cash back they’ve earned every three months and they are one of the original cash-back shopping sites.

2. “It’s not enough cash back to bother with”

Pennies add up, so while the cash back from one specific purchase may not be much – the cash back from ten purchases will add up.

3. “It’s too complicated”

It’s one extra step – you visit before shopping online and find the store you want to shop at.

4. “I don’t use PayPal”

You don’t have to get your cash back via PayPal. Ebates is happy to mail you a check every three months.

5. “I don’t shop online”

That’s a great reason not to use Ebates! But I invite you to explore replacing some of your in-store purchases with online purchases if you can get a better price and save time shopping.

If you don’t use Ebates, I’m interested in hearing the reason why. Please leave a comment or email me.
