Referring Friends: Get the Facts

It pays to be social.

How It Works

Referring friends to Ibotta is an easy way to get even more cash back. For each successful referral you drive to the app, you’ll receive $5.00 straight into your Ibotta account! Take a look at the steps below to ensure you receive credit.

Step 1: Your friend must create a NEW Ibotta account using your unique referral code.

Step 2: They must then log in to their new Ibotta account on a mobile device that has NOT been associated with another Ibotta account already.

Step 3: Your friend must complete their $10 Welcome Bonus within 30 days by redeeming an offer. *Please note: Any Brand and Any Receipt offers are NOT eligible for the $10 Welcome Bonus.

Once these three steps have been completed, you should be credited within 24 hours!

    I am new to Ibotta and my friend received the 5$ from me joining and I didn’t receive my $10. What do I need to do? Thank you

    1. Unfortunately, Ibotta is a mostly mobile app and the website is not a full extension of the app. Sorry to hear this and we’ll share your message with our teams. Thanks!

    I referred 2 family members using my link. They used rebates that were not “any brand,” or, “any variety.” It has been over 48 hours and I have not received my 5$ bonus.

    1. Great question! Upon review of your account, it appears that you have been credited with 2 out of 3 referrals. Please refresh your activity to view your earnings. Thanks!

    I never received anything I ad 4 friends join and complete all steps. If your going to offer something like this at least keep your word this is FALSE ADVERTISING Im not your employee but I did advertising for Ibotta and I expect to be rewarded accordingly
