Ibotta (eye-bought-uh). Ever heard of it? It’s an app that saves you a little money. My friend told me about it a few months ago and just recently I decided to give it a try. It kinda works like Ebates. You go on to the app and check the items on their list that you normally buy. The items are listed under specific stores; Target, WalMart, Winco, Whole Foods, Cost Plus, Fred Meyer, Trader Joe’s, Costco, Dollar Tree, Amazon and tons of others!
What I like about it is it’s super easy. After going grocery shopping I just go to the app, hit the redeem button and take a picture of the receipt. The app identifies the items from your list that are on the receipt and credits your Ibotta account. For instance today I bought two 24 oz. yogurts, some cream cheese and some sour cream. My Ibotta account was credited $3.75. You can redeem your credit once it hits $20. I am still new to this but I think when you redeem you can get cash through Pay Pal or things like gift cards to a movie theater.
The Ibotta app is like using coupons without having to cut, save and organize. It’s also free! For me, the app is just kinda a fun thing to do to see how quickly the credit adds up. I also noticed you will want to check it every week or so because they add different items that you might want to check.
Check it out! Just sharing.
