How To Use Ibotta (Grocery Savings App)

Ibotta, the grocery savings app, is available on Android & iPhone! The genius about this app is that it can be used WITH paper coupons! So it allows you to double up on your savings. 

What is Ibotta?  
It's a savings app similar to Endorse or SavingStar where you will earn savings based on purchases you make in the grocery store.  

How to use Ibotta?
After downloading the app register with all your information.  Then choose from the offers listed.  Each offer says "Earn xx.xx"  underneath it.  Click on the item you are interested in.

You will get a screen like this. In order to earn the maximum amount you need to click on each circle.  Starting with the lowest amount click and learn a fact about that product.  Then click the 2nd circle to answer a poll question about that product.  Lastly click the 3rd circle to share on Facebook in order to get the highest savings.   

Once you have clicked all three circles then click "redeem".  This will prompt you to select the store you purchased the product from and walk you through submitting your receipt. Then you will be asked to scan the bar code of the item purchased.  At that time it's submitted to Ibotta for approval.  

Approval happens very quickly as long as your receipt scan & bar code scan are clear. You will be able to cash out once you have $5 in your account & it also happens very quickly!
