Here’s how it works:
1) Open the app and browse products (many are grocery store items but it now works at Toys R Us, Home Depot, Lowe’s and the movies!)
2) Select the products you either bought or will buy and click on the action items to earn money.
4) Open the app and click on “redeem”
5) Take a photo of the receipt (and scan barcode, if required). (Some stores, like Hannaford, work automatically without needing upload a receipt.)
6) That’s it! Once ibotta approves your receipt, the money will be deposited into your account. Redeem your money for a PayPal deposit or gift cards (Starbucks, Regal, etc.)
I started using ibotta in April and have earned $28.75 so far- and I only use it a couple times a month. Definitely worth it for very little effort!
