Are you an Ibotta first-timer? We’re here to help you discover all the different ways you can earn cash back.
First things first, let’s make sure you have downloaded the app and registered an account! Once this step is complete, you’re ready to start earning.
1. Scan Receipts From In-Store Purchases
One of our most popular ways to earn cash back with Ibotta is by uploading receipts from purchases made at the store. There are always 100’s of offers available at major retailers across the United States, including Walmart, Target, Whole Foods and more.
Select the store you want to shop at and start browsing available offers.
Add an offer to your list by selecting the blue plus sign. This will prompt you to complete a quick activity, such as learning a fact or watching a 15-second video. Sometimes it will be added instantly!
Go shopping and purchase the products you’ve added to your Ibotta list.
Select the “redeem” option at the bottom of your screen, snap a quick photo of your receipt, and confirm the items that you’ve purchased. That’s it! We’ll credit your Ibotta account within 24 hours.
2. Connect a Loyalty Card
We have partnered with several retailers to offer you the ability to link your store loyalty card to the Ibotta app. This allows you to earn cash back without scanning receipts! Simple, right? The image above showcases our integration with Rite Aid, a great resource for your pharmacy and wellness needs.
Select the “Use Card” option at the bottom of your screen. This will prompt you to connect your unique store loyalty card to your Ibotta account.
Add offers to your list prior to shopping.
Purchase qualifying Ibotta items and we’ll automatically give you cash back within 24 hours, no photo of your receipt required!
3. Start with Ibotta When Shopping Online
Making a purchase online? Be sure to check Ibotta beforehand! We’ve partnered with over 50 of the top online retailers to give you cash back on every order, every time. This includes popular brands like Amazon, Groupon, Hotels.com, and more.
Visit the Mobile Shopping category, and find the online store you’d like to shop at.
Select the “Shop at…” button and Ibotta will take you straight to that retailer’s app or mobile website.
Complete a purchase without leaving the retailer’s app or mobile website. That’s it! You’ll receive a notification shortly of how much money you have pending, and when you’ll receive your cash back.
Q: Are there other ways to earn cash back?
A: Yes, we are always adding new options to earn cash back on purchases. Check the app regularly for special offers at restaurants, gas stations, clothing retailers, and more! You’ll also come across “Any Brand” offers, that let you redeem a type of product (such as milk or bread) without a restriction on what type of brand it is! Learn More
Q: How do you redeem the Best Buy offer correctly?
A: The Best Buy offer is redeemed a little differently than others. When at checkout, open the Ibotta app, locate the available Best Buy offer, and have the cashier scan your unique Best Buy QR code (provided by Ibotta) before providing payment. You’ll then receive cash back on your purchase within 24 hours. Learn More
Q: How do I cash out my earnings?
A: Once you have redeemed $20 or more through Ibotta, you’re able to cash out your earnings through PayPal, Venmo, or a variety of popular gift cards.
