I know there are tons of Apps for saving money. This post I am focusing on Ibotta. When I started this ” Saving Money Journey” there wasn’t anyone there to show me how all this works. I had to figure it out. Since then I have had many people ask me how to use some of these Apps. It can be hard to understand if you have never used them. My goal here is to share a Step By Step Guide to Ibotta.

Browse the Categories. Find items you buy normally. ( I do not want you to buy items just to earn money) Once you find one you may buy hit “Unlock” you can “unlock as many rebates as you want. Some rebates may have you answer a survey question or watch a quick video to unlock.
Below are some pictures of how easy Ibotta makes earning cash back.
You are ready to earn your cash back. After you have bought any items you have unlocked you can go into your App and click the green “Verify Purchases” button. Select the store you shopped at. Then click the item you bought. The App will then ask you to scan the bar code off the item you bought. Next it will take you back to the list of your unlocked rebates to see if you bought more than one. If you do have multiple items you bought one receipt simply repeat the process.
Now that you have scanned all the bar codes from the items you purchased click the bottom green “Submit receipt” button. This is where it will ask you to Take a picture of your receipt. Then hit Finish!
Side note: Wal-Mart receipts are even easier
You’re done! Once you do this the first time it becomes so easy. There is no reason to not get money back on items you already buy. Especially items like bread and milk, which Ibotta does feature a lot of “any brand” items. So you can get store brand if you want and see earn cash back. Once you have $20.00 in your account you can cash out and there are a list of ways to get your money back. (including sending it directly to your checking account)
So head on over to Ibotta and start saving!
