Earn Money Shopping with the New ibotta App

I just learned about a great, easy way to earn extra money with your iPhone. It’s a new app called, “ibotta” and its FREE to download HERE. Think shopping, trivia, and quick cash all rolled into one! Ibotta gives you the opportunity to earn real money for buying products that most likely you were going to buy anyway. You can also learn about new products by taking polls, reading facts or watching short videos and earning more cash.

I browsed through the offers and found many common brandnames like Dove, Cottonelle, Tide, Kleenex, Tyson, Jif, Coke and more! This app works in Target, Walmart and Walgreens with new stores being added all the time.

Here’s how it works…

Download the FREE ibotta app HERE. Right now, this app is compatible with iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S and 5, iPod touch (3rd, 4th & 5th generations), and iPad (iOS 5.0 or later required). If you are an Android user, no worries! Ibotta will soon be available for Android devices. Go HERE and click on “Android user” near the bottom of the page and you’ll be able to add your name to their email list. Ibotta will notify you when it becomes available.


Once you’re registered, you’re ready to start choosing the offers you’re interested in. Just tap on the offer and the next screen will give you choices to earn money. The more offers you choose, the more cash back you’ll earn. Have fun and explore all the offers. See what coupons you have for even more savings! (Whether or not you use coupons will not affect your earnings). And, if you tap on the product, you can give a thumbs up or down whether you like the product. If you repeat this as you go thru the offers, the app will learn your likes and dislikes and personalize your offers to your preferences.

Next, go shopping. You can buy your chosen products at Target, Walmart or Walgreens. Once you’ve made your purchase, take a photo of your receipt and upload. This is easily done from within the ibotta app using the camera feature. There are even guidelines to help you.

The best part of this new app is you are earning real cash. Earnings can be transferred securely to your Paypal account or donated to any school in America. Once your receipt is uploaded, ibotta will verify your purchase(s) and notify you anywhere from 2 – 24 hours that your credit is available. For me, my first receipt was approved within a 1/2 hour! Ibotta only requires a $5 minimum balance to start redeeming your earnings, which I think is very reasonable. As you redeem offers, your shelves will be restocked with new offers. There is no limit to how many offers you can redeem. 🙂

If you have questions or need assistance, I found ibiotta’s Support Center to be very helpful with lots of instructional videos and easy to follow articles. From their home page HERE, just click on “Help Center” at the bottom of the page, right-hand side. Take advantage of this new opportunity and Sign up HERE to earn a little mad money for the holidays!
