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.

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.

Ebates $5 Sign-Up Bonus: 2 Steps to Ebates

by Freebies4Mom on July 18, 2010 9:56 am

New Ebates members get a $5 sign-up bonus at Ebates. If you do any online shopping, then I want you to be getting cash back through Ebates! Plus I’m encouraging my readers to sign-up for Ebates this week because I’m hosting a special giveaway starting Monday ($600 gift card) that only Ebates members can enter. Watch for this new giveaway to be announced on Monday!  All I’ll ask for is the email address that you used to register for Ebates to confirm your membership status – both new members and exisiting members are eligible to enter.

It takes less than a minute to make these 2 steps to get your Ebates – that’s cash you already spent that you get back! It’s like getting a rebate on most of your online purchases.

Step 1: Go to
The key is to remember to start your online shopping at Ebates, sign-in to your account and then you can start shopping.

Step 2: Find your store
I like to type the name of the store I’m looking for in the search field in the top right. Once you find your store you can view coupons and the cash back for that store. Now you can start shopping and your purchase will be tracked at Ebates so that you get credited cash back in your account.  Cash back is issued every 3 months – you can ask for a check mailed to your house or get your payment via PayPal.  It’s worth the wait, and a great way to fund something extra like gifts for holidays.

If you’ve recently signed-up remember that you don’t get that $5 bonus credited to your account until you make your first purchase through Ebates of $20 or more (within 90 days of signing-up).
