The ibotta app – it really pays!

Just about everyone has a smartphone these days. If you want to pick up some cash on things you’re already buying, ibotta is a must have. There’s some other similar apps out there and we’ll discuss them later. You can “Double Dip” some times if there are some items that pop-up on numerous apps. But for now, let’s just focus on ibotta as I’ve found it’s the most user-friendly and you can just about always find a deal or two. Get the app HERE Full disclosure – yes, I get a little something-something for you using my referral code in the link but so do you! Once you redeem your first rebate, you’ll get some cash to get you started! It’s really simple to use. If you have any questions, contact me and I’ll do my best to walk you through it.

My wife & I both use the ibotta app on a regular basis. Since I sell a lot of stuff on eBay (remember, I also buy storage lockers at auction), I have a PayPal account. When I want the cash I’ve banked via ibotta, I simply transfer it to my PayPal account. I can then transfer it directly to my checking account or spend it however I choose using PayPal. My wife, on the other hand, doesn’t have a PayPal account. No worries, she simply uses her ibotta balance in the form of giftcards she selects from her ibotta account. There’s tons of them like, AMC & Regal theatres, Bass Pro, AppleBees, Belk, Best Buy, Chili’s, Walmart, etc.

The whole premise of ibotta, is you select a store you’re shopping at to see what “rebates” are availalbe. Select the rebate(s) you want and go shopping as you would normally do. Once you’ve purchased the rebated item, you’ll scan your receipt in the ibotta app and then you’ll scan the barcode of the item you’ve purchased. The posted rebate amount is then deposited into your ibotta balance! It’s really that simple. Now, Get Off That A$$

My wife & I travel quite a bit. Both for work and for play. Everywhere we go, we look for places the enhance our hobby of mystery shopping. In fact, a few years ago our other hobby of buying abandoned storage lockers was lucrative enough to send us to the Big Island of Hawaii for a week! While there, we conducted a mystery shop at Ruths' Chris Steakhouse. We were reimbursed over $200! That's a pair of Benjamins we didn't have to budget for during our vacation. We hope to compile other money saving opportunities we've enjoyed on this blog.
