About Ibotta App

The Ibotta app is a new application available for both iOS and Android which they describe as a “fun and easy way to earn $20 or more each time you go shopping,” and puts a twist on a common coupon applications.

Unlike most savings and coupon applications, which just send you general coupons available to everyone, the Ibotta app tries to make the shopping, savings, and general consumer experience more personalized.

How Ibotta works is relatively simple. Before you go shopping, click on your Ibotta app and choose the products you intend to buy during your next shopping trip. Once you have selected an item, you will be asked to complete some tasks; the more tasks you complete, the more you can earn.

Ibotta says their goal is to give consumers a chance not only for savings but also to interact with the brands they purchase. This is where the tasks come in. Instead of straight forward coupons, you take part in a series of fun, game like interactions.

You are providing information to brands and retailers, and with this information the app can offer you further savings that are specifically personalized to your likes and needs.

You can then buy your items at any one of 35 nationwide retailers in your area – they also promise that new stores are being added all the time to expand their network to better serve you.

After you finalize your purchase, the rules say you must take a photo of your receipt and verify that you purchased the item by uploading that photo to your app. After your purchase has been verified, usually within 24 hours, you can choose to get real money in your PayPal account or have your earnings donated to any school in America.

You can also invite friends to join Ibotta with your referral link. You will earn $1 for every friend or family who registers for the app from your invitation.

Plain and simple, they stole from me. I was a new customer and I photocopy my receipts and upload them so they don't get lost. I had no idea that sending them a picture of the uploaded copy was against the rules. They closed my account out owing me $25 and won't respond to my e-mails. The receipts were NOT altered in any way. I'm contacting the retailers as well because I know they will turn my information in.

I've used ebates for about a year now, and love it. So when I saw a few in app advertisements for ibotta, I figured "why not?". It seemed to be the same type of concept...get a little bit of cash back for buying the stuff you were already going to buy. But that was just the tip of the iceberg! With the store extras and bonuses, I'm essentially saving 25-50% on my groceries and household items! It's fantastic! I've told everyone I know about ibotta, probably a couple of times...& I'm going to keep telling them!

I've been using it for about a week. It is very easy, but when I went to cash out, it said it got sent to my paypal account but I never received it!

They are liars! They closed my account owing me $25 and haven't paid me.

I absolutely have fallen in love with this app and share it with all the ladies that do the grocery shopping and want to save some money. It is quick, easy and my money is there immediately! I only wish I had found this sooner.

I've really enjoyed using Ibotta, it's kind of addicting. If you buy a lot of groceries it can help you earn money.

I just started using this 3 days ago and already had 42.50 deposited in my paypal account. All I did was get money for things I needed and bought. I love this app!!
