|December 20, 2012||Posted by Tricia under Apps, Cash Back Programs|
Some of you may have already heard about the new App ibotta. I wanted to wait to post about until I had a chance to actually use it.
Well so far I LOVE IT!
What is ibotta? ibotta is a very easy smartphone app that lets you earn money for shopping at select stores and purchasing products that you may already buy! The earning opportunities are on brand name products such as: Coke, Kleenex, Dove, Listerine and more.
There are a limited amount of stores participating right now, just head over here for the full list. Notables for me were Target, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aid.
To get started, just head over here to download either the Android or iPhone version. Once downloaded you can begin to click on various offers available that you may be interested in. The picture above is just an example of an offer you may see. Click through each of the “round bullets” to earn the amount shown. Some are polls, others are “did you know”, recipes and facebook shares.
Once you are done clicking on all the money offers you are interested in, it’s time to go shopping. PLEASE make sure to read through the product information very carefully. The product is very specific and if you don’t buy the correct item, you won’t get the credit.
Once you purchase the product, you will scan the receipt right from your phone and the product bar code. Then within 24 hours you will get confirmation of money posted or if there was a problem with the receipt. Once you receive $5.00 or more, you can request payment to a paypal account.
I already bought a product in the app, received the money in my account, then requested to my Paypal account, it all took less than 24 hours and I have the cash in my account. No kidding it was faster than I expected. Now I will say uploading the receipt is a bit of a pain, but it works and it works FAST!
Stay tuned for a great deal you can try with ibotta. Even sweeter, right now you can earn a Share the Love credit of $5 in addition to the product cash you will earn when you submit your first receipt :-)!
