What is Ibotta

Ibotta is a cash back app that allows you to earn money or gift cards for purchases you make everyday.

Ibotta, the free app, launched in 2012 and has paid out $275 million to users. The app has been downloaded over 23 million times.

In January 2018, Ibotta received a article in Forbes. The article shares how the Ibotta app saves consumers time and earns them money. It also tells how founder and CEO, Bryan Leach, came up with the idea for Ibotta.

How Ibotta Works

Ibotta list products that you can earn cash back on for simply purchasing them.

For example, I use Walmart a lot. So, if I go to Walmart and shop, I can then go to my Ibotta app and search what products they are offering cash back on. For instance, if they have milk on their product list and I purchased milk, I can redeem the offer by taking a photo of my receipt or scanning the QR code on the receipt.

The cash goes into my account. They payout once you've earned $20. You can have the cash paid to you through PayPal or Venmo. You also have the option to receive a gift card for payout.

More Rewards

There are other ways to earn money through Ibotta. For instance, if you link your Facebook account to your Ibotta account, Ibotta automatically puts you on a team with any of your Facebook friends that use the app.

Your team of friends can earn rewards together. Ibotta selects bonus items to redeem and the friends on the team can earn extra by completing the bonuses.

Ibotta also offers money to you for anyone that signs up using your referral link or code. When someone uses your referral link or code and completes their first offer, you get $5 added to your account.

In addition, anyone signing up with Ibotta for the first time receives $10 in their account. That puts you halfway there toward the $20 payout!

Keep reading for the link to the Forbes article explaining Ibotta in detail and I will also share my referral link for anyone who would like to try Ibotta. It cost nothing to sign up. This isn't a get rich scheme but it is a small way to earn money back on everyday items you're purchasing anyway.
