Have you heard of Ibotta? It is a great new iPhone app that lets you earn cash back for your regular grocery and household product purchases. What's perfect for me is that you can use this on top of using store coupons and sales which for me has even ended up making some items free or even a moneymaker!
I am not normally one to download alot of these apps but what I love about Ibotta is that it is so simple. All you do is sign up and download the app for free then go about your regular shopping at one of the listed retailers which include Publix, Target, CVS, Walgreens, Walmart and more.
When you get home simply scan any products that are available in your personalized offers and then upload a picture of your receipt. Each product can earn you anywhere from .25 cents to $1.25. And the best part? These are products normal people actually buy. My current offers list has things like Diet Coke, Advil, DiGiorno, Sargento, Ben & Jerrys, Colgate, Eggs and tons more.
I also like that I can do all my scanning and such at home so I don't have to deal with it in the store or use any of my data plan. I just use my wifi at home and do it when I have time.
What to see a shopping trip where I used my Ibotta app recently? Check it out here!
When you earn cash back you can choose to transfer it directly to your PayPal account or donate it to a school or to United Way. I have already transferred money to my PayPal twice and and everything went very smoothly.
Ibotta was running a promo where if you sign up through someone's referral link you automatically earn $5 to start with. Not sure if it's still running but you can click on this reffereal link HERE and see if it works. And since it's free you have nothing to lose : )
