Earn Cash Back On Mobile Apps


NEW: We’re thrilled to introduce our newest category, Mobile Apps! Start with Ibotta to earn cash back on purchases made in top apps like Groupon, Jet, Boxed, Ticketmaster and more.

What is It?

Unlike other Ibotta rebates, our new Mobile Apps category offers cash back rebates on in-app purchases made directly through your smartphone. Whether you’re booking a hotel or stocking up on everyday staples, earn real cash with the touch of a finger.

How it Works

Step 1: Type and search for “Mobile Apps” in the search bar. Browse the available rebates and unlock cash back.

Step 2: Once you have unlocked the rebate, tap on the green Launch App button at the bottom of your screen to open the app on your device.

*Don’t have the app downloaded yet? Don’t worry! Ibotta will take you straight to the App Store or Google Play Store where you can download and launch the app from there.

Step 3: After launching the app from Ibotta, make your in-app purchase.

Step 4: That’s it! You’ll receive a notification shortly after your purchase letting you know that your rebate is pending.

Please Note: Your Ibotta account will be credited within the allotted period of time. Check the rebate details for information on the pending credit period. Always launch with Ibotta to receive credit.

    1. Hi Paulette. Yes! Whether or not you have the external app downloaded, you are eligible to receive rebates through the app-to-app process. Be sure to go through Ibotta to launch the external app and then make your purchase. Have a great day and happy earning! 🙂

    Where did groupon go? I used it last night to make an in-app purchase and wanted to make another. I also recommended it to people today and now it looks like I’m a liar.

    Is this App for hotels.com or boxed.com rebates only use one time only like other items from grocery store that disappeared once you used them?. Or can we use hotels.com and boxed.com many time we want?

    I think you should clarify what is covered because fir Groupon because if Goods and Getaways are excluded, what exactly is covered? Just Spa and salon?

    I don’t ‘shop’ on my phone – too exhausting, too small., too much finger spreading and tapping! Ugh! Can I use this for internet shopping?

    Hi. I’m trying to figure out how to link my store savings cards to my Ibotta. The app description in the App Store said I could scan n take a pic of the receipt or link my cards. I can’t seem to find any directions on it. Help!

    1. Hi Belinda. Thanks for writing in. To link your loyalty card to Ibotta, please complete the following steps:
      1) Select your rebate category from the home screen in the mobile app. Scroll down and find your favorite retailer.
      2) Once you click on the retailer, you will then be prompted with a pop-up notifying you of further instructions of how to verify purchases from the retailer in question. Swipe left to learn about how to redeem from your Preferred Retailer.
      3) On the final page of the prompt, select “Link Account.” You can also go to “Verify Purchases” on the bottom menu bar and tap on the retailer’s name. From there you can scan or enter your loyalty card number. Now you are ready to verify purchases!
      To verify purchases from this retailer, simply unlock rebates you wish to verify before shopping, scan your card when you check out, and you’re done! All of the verified purchase information is automatically uploaded to Ibotta when you scan your card at checkout. We automatically review and credit your purchases usually within 48 hours. We are unable to accept normal receipt submissions for most preferred retailers, so make sure you link your loyalty card today! Thank you and have a great day!

  6. Hello. I tried a made a purchase with jet through the app but it failed multiple times then it finally went through but it did not process through your app I would like to know what to do. Thanks ahead of time.
