I’m so incredibly excited to share with you how I made $25 on the ibotta app in just 5 days! If you’re not familiar with ibotta, here’s how it works… You download the app to your smartphone, register yourself which takes a couple of minutes. Then you’re able to see all of the rebates that are going on at the time. There are grocery, apparel, Beauty & Wellness, Electronics and many more. You then see if there are any that you can take advantage of, you either watch a short video (usually 30 seconds – 1 min) answer a question, look at a recipe,etc. then after you’ve done that you qualify for the rebate (usually $.20 or more). Once you have everything that you want, you scan the bar codes of qualifying products, and take a picture of the receipt. They let you know within 24 hrs if your rebate was accepted or not (I haven’t been denied so far). It’s as easy as that!
When I registered on Monday I saw 6 items that I had purchased about 5 days prior on a spur of the moment trip to Meijer, so I scanned the receipt and earned $2 credit for all of it, PLUS an extra $1 just for scanning my first item within 10 days! I was so excited… I had just made $3 on something that I had already done! I was hooked from that moment.
That same day I posted on Facebook about how I loved ibotta and had just made $3. I made sure that I used my referral link on the post. I also sent the referral code to my mom and told her about it and how excited I was! She ended up sending the code to my brothers finance who signed up, so I earned another $2 from her registering and redeeming her first rebate. So by day 2 I had earned $5 and only scanned 1 receipt. I hadn’t even gone shopping since I downloaded the app!
On day 3 I got an email letting me know that one of my friends had registered using my link and I knew that she had done it from the post that I made on Facebook. Now I had $7 and still had not gone shopping! SCORE!!!! I made sure to send my friend a message and thank her for signing up, since she helped me out. Later that day after I had picked my oldest son up from school we went to Kroger to pick up some Chobani Kids yogurt tubes that I got for FREE because I test products through Buzz Agent (my boys LOVED them!). There was a rebate for the yogurt on ibotta so I scanned the bar code and receipt in the car because I was so super excited and I MADE $1!!! I also picked up some frozen meals that I found a coupon for and got one of those for free also! I scanned that and made $1.50. I was up to $9.50 and was so pumped because I only needed $.50 more to cash out to my PayPal account, which I had no intention of doing yet, but just the fact that I could made me excited LOL.
I had also found a deal at Walgreens, which is next door to Kroger for Huggies pull-ups and wipes buy 2 for $18, there was a rebate for both the pull-ups and the wipes on the app (I needed both so it was perfect) and I had coupons (even better), if I purchased 1 of each I would get a bonus! I ended up earning $4 from the Huggies deal! I had made it to my $10 goal and even surpassed it… I was up to $13.50 in only 3 days and had only went shopping one day and only for a few things! There was also another bonus on the app for $2 if I scanned 3 items worth $.50 or more… SCORE AGAIN!!! There was another $2 for pretty much nothing, $15.50!!!
The next day was my big Meijer shopping trip, this was where I shopped for pretty much the whole month. I did all of my coupons and checked them with the app. I found some awesome deals and I didn’t purchase anything that I didn’t need or wouldn’t use, just to get the rebate. I ended up making $9.15 from that trip and I made it though the level 1 teamwork bonus which gave me another $1. I was at $10.15 just for that shopping trip!!! I was so excited! I did spend a lot of money that trip, but it was monthly trip, so that was normal for me with a family of 5, 4 of which are boys. When I got home and everything was accepted, I ended up making $25.65 in just 5 days!!! I can’t wait to get more people on my team and all of us start earning more together!
