Have you heard?

…..about an app for your phone called ibotta?

My hubby has been using this for nearly the last year. I wasn’t interested. He is the shopper, not me, and this is an app that gives cash back on certain purchases. They have different offers from many different retailers such as Amazon, Kroger, Dollar Tree etc. I wasn’t interested, until he showed me this.

Hmmmm…..that could be interesting…. They have other offers too and they are stackable, meaning you can redeem other offers like those below and still get the 10% on top of that.

This is how it works. You download the app and register. Then open the app and search for offers. Click on the red plus sign to “claim” your offfers. You may have to watch a 15 second video to claim it. Then shop as you normally would. Then, go back into your app and click on the redeem button.

It will ask you to scan your receipt. Then money for the offers shows up in your account. Here’s a screen shot of mine from last week.

And what did I buy? I bought this bolt of sold gray wide backing fabric. There are 12 yards so the cost would have been $120. I used a 60% off JoAnns coupon which brought it down to $48. Then I got $7.08 back from ibotta bringing my total to just over $41 for 12 yards of 108 inch backing.

Reading over this, it sounds much more complicated than it is. Basically, it is a rebate app. You find offers, claim them, shop, and scan your receipt using your phone. When you accumulate $20 in your account, you can withdraw funds. Hubby has gotten $675 back so far. Some offers are for grocery items, like .50 back on bananas or bread. My plan is to let my earnings accumulate for a year and use it for my Black Friday shopping next year.

If you are interested, download the free app from the App Store and sign up with this referral code: FNWILQO. Or just click here. You will get a $10 bonus after claiming your first $10 in rewards and I get a small bonus for referring you.

But even if there weren’t a bonus, I’d still share with you, because I’m using it myself. I would have bought this bolt regardless, but getting money back made the deal a bit sweeter. I also got a reward for a large purchase of batting this month.

I hope this is helpful to some of you.

Have a great day!

    Hi Katy! I tried that app a while ago and never got into it. Maybe it’s time to give it a try again. I’ve been doing eBates lately for all the online shopping I do. It even has a percentage back at Craftsy and a referral program for friends. I use that money for an online Edvest account for Dominic and his soon-to-be sister and their education. Happy Happy Saturday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne
