How to Find the Hidden Money in Your Smartphone – Using the Ibotta App


Did you know you can earn cash back on your in-store and mobile purchases with the FREE mobile app created by a Denver-based company, Ibotta.

How does Ibotta work?

There are three ways in which you can earn –

        •       · Your receipt
    •       · Link the Ibotta app to your loyalty card
    •         By way of In-App purchases

Now to best use these options to maximize the amount of money hidden in your smartphone, start by making a shopping list of what you intend to buy BEFORE you leave.

If you have not done so already, download the Ibotta app to your smartphone and create an account.  Once you have done that, find the stores that you shop at in the app and find the one that has the best deal.  Select the item and add it to your Ibotta shopping list.

Now that you have your list in the Ibotta app and know where to find the best deals. Go out and purchase your items and be sure to ask for the receipt, if not provided one automatically at close of the sale.

Once you are home with your purchases, scan the receipt into the Ibotta app matching up your actual purchases to the ones you previously selected in the app, and activate the rebate.

What if I am using a loyalty card?

I just bought a new toaster oven at Kohls, to add the rebate to your card to complete the process, you need to enter your account number, store account or phone number at the start of the rebate process prior to scanning your receipt.

But I Make Most Purchases at the Checkout Using My Phone
Simply opening the app, selecting the items you intend to purchase and making the purchase online in your phone is all you need to do in this  case, Ibotta will be notified of the purchase.

No More Remembering to Cut and Take My Coupons…

I was referred to Ibotta by my sister and love the fact that I do not have to worry about remembering to take my coupons with me.  Once the purchase is made, Ibotta verifies my purchases and a confirmation of payment will appear in the app within 48-hours.

Ibotta is an easy way to make cashback, but it won’t help you save money unless you use it wisely.  There are offers for things you wouldn’t actually buy, so check and pick only those offers you actually use – then go forth and collect cash back. Remember spending money on items you dont use isn’t a good way to manage your money.  Let us know how you make out by leaving a comment after you have signed up for this app on your phone.
