What kind of work can I do?
Redeem rebates to get cash quick
There are 2 methods:
I. Submit a Receipt
1. Download the Ibotta App, which is required to submit a receipt
2. Unlock rebates by clicking on “Pink box” – Before you go shopping, unlock the cash rewards you are going to purchase by answering simple questions or watching short videos
3. Buy the products you unlocked
4. Verify your purchases, by scanning the product barcode, and submit a photo of your receipt
5. Get cash deposited into your account within 48 hours
II. Link a Loyalty Account
- Sign up for Ibotta
- Link your store loyalty account by connecting your loyalty card or phone number
- Unlock rebates just like in “Submit a receipt- #2”

If you need help, scroll down to the bottom of the page. Under “get help”, click on “Contact support”. Select a topic and type in a description you need help with and submit. If you want a quicker answer, click under “Get Help”, click on “FAQ”. On the smart phone, you would click on the menu on top left page. It will bring you to the home screen, scroll down and there is your help tab. You can find FAQ there or submit a question by contacting them. I haven’t had to contact Ibotta for support because I have not needed any help from them yet. Knock on wood.
We all go shopping for products, such as clothing, household supplies, groceries, etc. Why not earn REAL cash back at the same time? I have been using the app for 3 months and have gotten back $62.75. It isn’t a lot, but something is better than nothing. You definitely earn cash faster than taking surveys, which I have no patience for. Plus, you get CASH BACK within 48 hours. If you are a regular shopper, your cash back can be as fast as a few hours or within the hour in my experience. I haven’t linked a loyalty account because some stores don’t have that so I just use my smartphone. Ibotta is pretty efficient in my opinion, so doing the loyalty program shouldn’t be a problem. I just went to the grocery store today, 5/20/16 and redeemed $0.75 cents and was approved in a minute, so they don’t have a problem paying you. So I have earned a total of $63.50.
