ibotta app
Here is how the Ibotta app works:

1. Download the Free Ibotta App BY CLICKING HERE

It is currently compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd, 4th & 5th generation) iPad (limited stores), and Android – HOLLA LUJAH!!.

2. Choose Your Offers
Once you have the Ibotta app downloaded start choosing your offers. There are 3 ways you can earn money. You can take a quick poll, watch a short video, or look at a recipe. Each action above will earn you more money after you purchase the specified item.

3. Go Shopping
Shop at Here are the current retailers and there are others not listed:
City Market, CVS, Dillons, Dominicks, Duane Reade, Food4Less, Fred Meyer, Frys, Giant Eagle, Harris Teeter, H-E-B, Hy-Vee, King Soopers, Kroger, Meijer, Pavilions, Pick n Save, Publix, QFC, Ralphs, Randall’s, Rite Aid, Safeway, ShopRite, Smiths, Stop & Shop, Target, Tom Thumb, Walgreens, Walmart, WinCo Foods, Vons, 7-Eleven, then purchase the product as you normally would (this is similar to SavingStar). Using coupons will not have any effect on your ibotta offers. You can even scan the product’s barcode through the Ibotta app to be sure you are purchasing the correct product. . AWESOME!!

3. Take a Photo of Your Receipt
Once you have made your purchase, you will need to take a photo of your receipt through the app. If you have a longer receipt (like many of us do), you can add more sections of photos instead of trying to get it into one image. It will give you a prompt if you would like to take multiple photos of your receipt.

4. Get Your Money
Within 24 hours of uploading your receipt, your money will be placed in your Ibotta account. Once you hit $5 in your account, you can have your money loaded to your PayPal account or you can donate it to any school in the US.

Share & Earn
Now, the best part is, you can share the app and earn $1 for every referral. You will find your referral link in the menu of the app once you download and register your app.

**NOTE: You will NOT see the referral credit until you and the person you referred have redeemed a product by uploading your receipt.

    I downloaded this app this morning, did what I was supposed to for the products I knew I was going to buy, went and purchased them, took a photo of my receipt, and for all of them it said not correct product! Even though it was! Have you ever had that much trouble? I emailed them and am waiting for response. :(

      If it is the correct product they will fix the problem. . I have not heard of that problem and their customer service is outstanding:) Please let me know:)

        They did give me credit for the purchases! My receipt was exceptionally long and I had a hard time getting a good picture!

  2. Amanda says

    Can use the offers with more than one item? I bought a lot of crystal light last week and I’m not sure if I can get money on each one that I purchased.

  3. Stephanie says

    I tried using Ibotta this week for the first time. I “clipped” the offer for Milk, bought it at Kroger, took a pic of my reciept (long receipt even though I only bought a couple things), it asked me to scan the UPC code and I did, but then when it told me to match up my products nothing came up – nothing at all. I tried several times, finally said forget it. I will try again with something but I lost out on the milk deal. Bummer..

    If you download coupons to your Kroger card and also have manufacturer coupons can you use both on a product
