Managing the Money – using Ibotta

Another thing that I do around here to save/make money is use Ibotta. It is easy to use and always has several things that I buy in my normal shopping trips.  It only takes a few minutes as I’m unpacking the groceries to cash in on my purchases.

It is simple and self explanatory.  If you don’t have an account, you can sign up here.  You will get $10 in your account just for signing up!

Download the app.  Once you open it, you select your retailer from the list.  There are currently almost 200 stores to choose from. Choose the items that you have purchased and “unlock” them.  This usually involves a poll to take, a fact to read, or a quick video.  It never takes more than a few seconds.  You then verify your item by scanning the barcode and/or the receipt.  You have seven days to submit your receipt.

That’s it!  You get the approval quickly and the money is added to your account within 48 hours.  You can cash out when you have a balance of at least $10.00.  That doesn’t take very long at all to accumulate.  I use paypal but you can also cash out into venmo.

Another thing that I really like is that many of the items can be any brand.  IMG_5354

So, that’s it!  Happy shopping!  I think you will be very impressed with the money that you can earn through Ibotta.
