Cash Out With Gift Cards


Cashing out with gift cards is an easy way to put your Ibotta earnings to good use.

How to Cash Out With Gift Cards

Whether you use your Ibotta funds to fuel your Starbucks addiction or grab new beauty products at Sephora, cashing out with gift cards is a great way to budget for the “treat yourself” purchases you make on a regular basis.

    I wish i could send my rebates directly to a charity. I volunteer at Converse Animal Shelter and would love to see you all expand beyond gift cards or mail checks. I dont have pay pal and the ther account to send my rebate money there.

      1. Unfortunately, Ibotta partners with retailers individually. Although Harvey’s is a part of Bi-Lo, Ibotta does not yet partner with Harvey’s at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks!

    I have sent requests 4 times through the Ibotta app on my phone. Around November 25, in the time frame, I asked for a cash out of 4 $25.00 Cabela gift cards. I have not yet received cards or email instructions on how to obtain the cards. I expected to give them as gifts this next week, but cant……since I have not received them. Please advise how quickly this can be rectified…..of perhaps sending me cash would be better.

      1. Great question! It looks like the highest value is $25.00. However, you are able to purchase multiple gift cards depending on your balance. Hope this helps. Thanks!

    I would like to be able to redeem my cash for like a visa gift card. That way I can use my money how I want. Like gas purchases.

      Try putting the money in your PayPal. You can then order a PayPal debit card or use the money for shopping online.

    1. Please try refreshing your device by forcing the app to close, restarting your device, and updating to the latest version if necessary. Hope this helps, thanks!

    Hi, I redeemed the gift card already and I received an email, the code to buy with the card will be provided later or should it be in that first email after I redeemed it?

    1. Great question Maria! Not all gift cards will come with a redemption code as it isn’t necessary. Use the link in the first email that you received and it should automatically connect you with the e-gift card. Hope this helps. Thanks!

    Can you have an actual gift card mailed to you instead of having to use an email? I was wanted to give the cards as gifts and didn’t want to had them a piece of paper.

    1. Great question! Unfortunately, we only offer e-gift cards at this time. However, you are free to visit the local store with your e-gift card and purchase a physical gift card to give as a gift! Some of our retailers also offer the opportunity to purchase a gift card online and mail it to yourself or directly to the recipient. Hope this helps. Thanks!

  6. My sister, Sharon Bacom received a $25.00 e gift card from Ibotta on her apple phone and when she attempted to use it at Walmart it had disappeared from her emails. Her email address is XXXXX. Would you please address this issue with her. She is so upset that she lost out on the $25. That she worked hard to earn. Thanks

    Trying to claim my best buy e-gift card and when I hit claim in the email it takes me to the ibotta . Then what do I do?

    I purchased the Wal-Mart gift card, I received the email that says claim your card but nothing happens I see the Wal-Mart card but no barcodes. I have done it 4 times now

    1. Sorry to hear that! Please try accessing the gift card link from a desktop or laptop computer. Sometimes the link provided does not directly go to the verification site. You can also request the Support Team provide you with the GC link. We apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks!

    I received the email to get my $20 Walmart gift card but when I click on the icon in the email that says claim this gift card it just sends me back to the Ibotta app with no further instructions. How do I claim this gift card?

    1. Sorry to hear that! Please try accessing the gift card link from a desktop or laptop computer. Sometimes the link provided does not directly go to the verification site. We apologize for the inconvenience. Thanks!

    I have been waiting for 3 days now for my giftcard. I have never had a problem receiving it before until a few days ago. Can you please help me get my giftcard that I earned.

    What are the amounts available for a Walmart Gift Card? I know there is $20 and $25..are there any other options? It is frustrating that it won’t let me see all Gift Card amounts until I have the minimum $20.

    I wish to withdraw some of my earnings. I’m following your instructions but there is no “Withdraw Cash” tab on my account page or the navigational bar. What gives? Larry

    1. Great question Larry! Please tap Account and then underneath your name and lifetime earnings, tap the “Withdraw Cash” bar that is a turquoise color. This will take you to the cash out options. Thanks!

    I’m wondering if I choose e Walmart Card , how does that operate ? Will I get a gift card # like Amazon & can only shop Online, or will I recieved something that can be used in stores also ?

    1. Greta question! You will receive an e-gift card via your email address. The gift card number and code can be used both online and in-store. Please let us know if you have more questions. Thanks!

    My cell phone is not getting texts or calls (temporarily, but for a few more weeks) How can I get my gift card verification? Can I get it through email? Thanks

    I really enjoyed using the gift card feature, especially at Walmart. It was so easy, UNTIL RECENTLY.
    The giftcard now requires a supervisor to approve the transaction???. Still usable, but now kinda a hassle.

    I had $40.20 and already cashed out $20 yesterday for a Walmart gift card, that I have not used yet. I am trying to cash the other $20 out for another Walmart gift card but it keeps telling me “Invalid Gift card” or “Duplicate gift card cashout error”. Why won’t it let cash out? Thanks!
