Love this app. Getting paid for things I buy every week is the best. Customer support is FANTASTIC!!!
by SCADBOTORMOOTER on 2015/03/04 01:17
Good stuff!
Fun way to save!
by 705 Indian on 2015/03/03 23:04
Stumbled upon this app- but am enjoying saving money in what I already buy anyway!
Now I hate it
by Jaxx LA on 2015/03/03 21:15
Use to be good until about a month ago. Most of the items that come out are hard to find in store or aren't sold at most stores. I'm going back to clipping coupons...
by Jmkar on 2015/03/03 19:11
I've just started and I haven't "cashed out" with my rebates yet but over all it's a great concept and I love it!
by IshKabibil3335 on 2015/03/03 14:37
I love that is creates a shopping list. That makes it easier for me to verify purchases while I'm in the store. My only complaint is when I used a promo I never received the $15 rebate. I emailed Ibotta about it and 6 weeks later I have yet to hear back from them.
by kcandjohn on 2015/03/03 12:10
I am still learning how all this works but I am having a blast shopping and making money back all at the same time. Thanks Ibotta.
Great way to earn extra money!!!!
by Stace330 on 2015/03/03 08:32
I've had this app for about 9 months and I've earned so much! I love it!!! I would like to see fresh produce, more health and beauty aids. Toys.. Lol there has been only 2 kinds of toys! I buy Monster High a lot!!!! Haha.. Awesome app!
Rewards received in an hour after redemption
by Shellypearl on 2015/03/03 03:17
Wow, the rewards came sooner than I anticipated. Signed up a few days ago and their items are common household stuff that you'd get so often. Pretty easy to redeem and fun to fulfill tasks..
💜💜💜 Love this money making app!
by Gzmo94 on 2015/03/03 02:53
This app is tremendously profitable using items I buy anyway. Teams increase the money possibilities by a huge amount! In just over 3 months I already made over $120.00 Join my team use code. jedtnxq
Great app
by sunbug33 on 2015/03/03 02:43
This is a great app has lots of stores to pick from wish it would add more online stores though
Started off great, but...
by carly1987 on 2015/03/03 02:26
The first time I used this app, it was easy to redeem my items. However, the second time I tried to redeem rebates, my bar code didn't match on one item and the rebate for the other item had disappeared. I tried contacting support and received a form email in response that didn't help at all. When I tried to follow up, I got no response. Great concept, but execution turned pretty bad pretty quick.
Earning cash is easy!
by Danaberry33113 on 2015/03/02 23:19
I love earning cash for things I already buy. Good brands, too! Easy to use and nice to transfer my earnings onto a Starbucks card!
Great app
by Grocery superwoman 56 on 2015/03/02 22:55
It's a great app my only concern is that many of the items aren't things I would buy on a regular basis. They are unknown companies
Love it but could use more variety
by Smalltenderscrl on 2015/03/02 18:17
Love this app but it would be nice to have more coupons for things that I use ! Like diapers wipes and even for chips and other different things like candy I'm not a fav of etc
by 22jockisch on 2015/03/02 17:19
I was just introduced to the apps that you can save a little money for things you buy normally at the store. I have enjoyed it. This probably is the easiest one so far.
It's great
by rewhunter on 2015/03/02 16:54
The only negative is that they aren't items that you need. But it really works.
Love it!
by Frostequeene on 2015/03/02 16:54
So easy to use, and you see your money in your account in 24h or less!
Love It!!
by JReyn4 on 2015/03/02 16:41
I enjoy using this app gives you more ways to earn money and you get new rebates every couple days and you get to have teammates to earn your money faster will continue using this app 😊
Would like more variety in rebates offered
by drhrn on 2015/03/02 16:04
I tend to use rebates for things I usually purchase
Useful App
by Swait19 on 2015/03/02 15:53
I've only used the app once, and just selected a handful of items from my regular grocery store. Sure enough, with my store loyalty card connected, within minutes I received a notice from Ibotta that there were credits on my account. Super easy so I will continue with it. Love the redemption options too!
Love it
by Nzajoe on 2015/03/02 15:20
So far it saves me lots of money. Whoever came up with this idea is a genius.
Plan before you shop
by MEAsK@t on 2015/03/02 14:58
I like scanning my receipt after shopping. No one likes to drag paper coupons, but we like the bargains. Open the coupon rebates that your interested in & shop. Scan afterwards & add the cash to your account.
It's worth your time
by Ladysaibills on 2015/03/02 12:49
I've been using this app since Nov 2014. I've earned 20.00. Could've been if I put more time into it. I like that milk, bread, cheese the basic grocery items are frequently listed to get rebates from. I think the majority of demographics across the board can save and be satisfied with this app.
by Kasey b on 2015/03/02 07:08
ALERT!!!! Use my code and you will thank me !!!!

Free money!!
by Aiden&MCsmommy on 2015/03/02 02:54
I started using Ibotta mid January and I already have redeemed $40!! And it's all for items that I already buy!! Milk, bread, paper towels, shredded cheese and the list goes on and on! I love this app!! Definitely recommend!
by Garagesalelunatic on 2015/03/02 02:29
I've made $5 in 3 days but teamwork is the way to multiply earnings! Here is my referral code if you want to start off on a productive money-making team! Code: gkdmfbe
Best Shopping App
by Mountaingal12 on 2015/03/02 01:50
Ibotta is the best shopping app! It's easy to use and I have earned so much money buying my favorite products. I highly recommend!
Free money!
by Soccermoms on 2015/03/01 21:41
I just started using this yesterday and it took a little getting a used to. But once I got it figured out and now I like it ore!!
Does what it says
by elovest on 2015/03/01 21:15
Seems to be a good app.
Didn't work
by Bambi323 on 2015/03/01 21:00
No matter how many times I sent in my receipt picture in it kept saying I did something wrong. I took pictures of everything that it said to each time. After 5 attempts, it's not worth it. A wasted of my time...

I love this app! Great way to save money.
Love it!!!!
by Jelly4045 on 2015/03/01 16:37
I've had it a little over a week and have already saved over $24. Awesome!!!!!!!
Good savings
by Psikro on 2015/03/01 16:30
I really like the good savings and the app is pretty easy to use. Wish they have a better variety on the discounted products. It seems they have the items on their all the time and it never changes but a few.
Love Ibotta
by Person729 on 2015/03/01 13:13
So easy to use and rewards add up quickly!
Phone Alerts & Money back 👍👍
by BigSmile4 on 2015/03/01 12:56
Get money back for buying items you use. Especially nice that ibotta sends alerts to your phone while you are at a participating store that refunds are available, nice reminder!!! Also can redeem or cash out easily to PayPal account or other ways.
by savingsaremything on 2015/03/01 02:35
great app! I've already made about $10 off of it, on things I already bought. use this code -> jhrersf to get $5 INSTANTLY when you sign up
Great App!
by OilPatchMom on 2015/03/01 01:21
I love that Ibotta lets me know where the stores nearby are! It's easy to use the app and find deals!
Easy & fun
by Nyck1983 on 2015/03/01 01:12
Easy to use.
Ibotta makes me real money
by Kcoffman7350 on 2015/03/01 00:33
I love Ibotta. I log on several times a week and select items I plan to buy, then scan the bar codes and receipts turning them into cash!
Great app! Needs to change products
by Organize girl on 2015/03/01 00:20
I love Ibotta. Great way to earn money shopping for things you were already buying. I cashed out $40 a few months ago. However, the products are getting repetitive and outside of milk it's not always easy to find anything to redeem. Please add more items!!!!!
Easy to use.
by LASM87 on 2015/02/28 23:59
I have used this twice now and find it easy to use. I simply scan my items and receipt when I get home. In two weeks at one store I have over $3
by Coffeejar on 2015/02/28 22:30
I find this app to be fun for savings. It's great once you understand how to use it, which is an easy process. The kids love to scan and photograph the receipts. I'm looking forward to transferring my savings over onto gift cards or my debit card and I like the goals that are set for extra earnings too. Teamwork is fun!
Waste of energy
by Tree2806 on 2015/02/28 19:14
I got this app thinking it would be a great way to save money, however you have to have a minimum balance of $10.00 and it takes ages to get there. I have been working on it since October 2014 and I still haven't managed to reach the min. 99% of the items are completely useless for everyday life and the rare 1% that are valuable to everyone they are constantly adding and removing them, more of the latter than the former. Complete waste of time and storage space on my phone.
Great app
by Money lover. on 2015/02/28 17:44
Love this app and receiving money back for the items I buy regularly. Do wish there were more grocery stores in my area and more groceries on the app itself but I'll take what I can get.
Real cash back!!
by Santha M. on 2015/02/28 17:08
Why not spend the few extra minutes while you are making your grocery list to open this app and add your items that you intend to buy!!! Real cash back!
Very bad
by Hellbound360 on 2015/02/28 16:50
I tried it and it said it wanted a picture. I took one and it got denied. This app is junk. I got a email saying I got 2.50$ for my rebates and the app says 0. This app is a waste of time. Hate it. Where's the hate button??? Really. Where is it???
Love it!
by Mloeffler on 2015/02/28 16:44
I saved so much in Ibotta I was able to buy Christmas presents with the money in the account! Wish there were readily-available brands as available as the niche organic ones, but understand the publicity for the newer brands. Love the "any brands" rebates!
by gregcota on 2015/02/28 14:37
Great app
by Mriter2014 on 2015/02/28 14:25
It's easy to use.... Love the fact that u can earn back for what you buy everyday...
Awesome app
by kristye45 on 2015/02/28 13:34
I've already earned over $130 cash just by buying products I usually buy!!
Best app for saving real cash
by Grocerygettermom on 2015/02/28 11:39
I use lots of coupon/rebate apps and iBotta is by far the best. It's way easier to navigate than other rebate apps. I wish the others would take notes. In the last year I've gotten back over $300 from groceries, clothes, restaurants, etc from rebates and bonuses. Check Facebook for iBotta groups and tips!
by Braden & Cambria's Momma on 2015/02/28 02:47
Love saving with ibotta!! Wish they used Fresh & Easy though.
Great easy app!
by Missyorik on 2015/02/27 22:20
I just cashed out and got a $10 Starbucks gift card! The grocery rebates aren't always what I need, but in two weeks I was able to reach $10. Cereal, orange juice, yogurt, and some more interesting things like veggie patties and homeopathic cold medicine. Really can't go wrong. Even if there are only a few items to rebate - things add up and there are bonuses!
Good app
by Aafarr on 2015/02/27 21:39
I love the app. Only wish it added new rebates more often but you can use them more than once
Like it
by Scout9125 on 2015/02/27 20:46
Really like the app, easier to me to use than coupons.
by LG-Mom on 2015/02/27 19:43
Love it! Need more milk, cereal, bread rebates.
Love it

I love Ibotta! Great app that never gives me any problems.
Pretty good
by Beanll on 2015/02/27 14:51
This is a pretty good money saver. I think. Usually there are items I am going to buy and I don't mind trying new brands if I am not spending much. But I keep getting my receipts rejected for " unknown reasons" and when I earned a lot of money on one receipt the rescinded the offer. I am not yet sure if the app is worth the time and money yet.
Love it!
by Babygrl30 on 2015/02/27 13:49
I love this app! I just joined so I don't have much yet, but I buy stuff that IS on here so I know it will take no time at all to get more!
Cool app but too much to keep up
by mskimmiek on 2015/02/27 11:25
Easy to verify the item but taking the picture of the receipt can be a bit much although the picture may seem fine to you Iborra might not be able to read it all the time and they need better items on there.
by Muhammed Zagros on 2015/02/27 10:27
Not a good app
by Turkarese on 2015/02/27 07:04
Love this app keeps me moving looking for good deals and savings!!!!!!
RED ALERT!!!!!!!

I love to save money, especially when I don't have to clip coupons!
Great app
by CELP1 on 2015/02/27 03:55
I have been using for two years and earned lots of cash.
Actually delivers on its promise
by Phx85014 on 2015/02/27 02:26
At first I wasn't sure but I'm now saving some very good money with this app. I can’t imagine having to find and clip paper coupons, and then remembering to bring them to the store, but I’ll definitely do this.
Excellent so far
by Tinal38 on 2015/02/27 01:53
I have gotten a lot of money in discounts and rebates. I just hope they continue to add more coupons so it is easier to reach goals, some of the coupons are reported or for things you'd rarely buy. Great app
Love it!
by Rede2go247 on 2015/02/27 00:04
It's easy...and all I have to do is take a pic of my receipts! You can't loose!!!
Love this!
by MamaPayPay on 2015/02/26 22:29
Love how simple and quick it is! Great way to save some extra cash!
No successful redemptions yet
by mindprobe on 2015/02/26 22:08
I have repeatedly tried to redeem with no luck. Barcodes scan no problem but no matter how often I scan the receipts they keep saying the can't read it even though I can clearly read the picture myself. Even tried taking close ups of the items in addition to the normal picture with no results. Also several rebates expired during the process so down from $5 to $1 if I could get it to work now. Just not worth the hassle at this point. Submitted a help request with no response or even an acknowledgement they received my request.
Good but not Great!
by Aed5166 on 2015/02/26 21:14
Wish there were more options because a lot of the stuff on the app I don't buy. A few like the pasta and milk are always good. It's free money, can you really have any serious complaints!
by Non couponer 2 on 2015/02/26 20:57
Super easy and makes saving money fun
Pretty good
by Mommythe best on 2015/02/26 20:47
I like this app but I do wish there would be a little more variety in what's offered. I have a hard time finding some of the products.
Does what it says
by Lju1982 on 2015/02/26 20:29
No gimmicks, real cash. Only complaint is that it has way too many alcohol rebates and repeats.
Easy savings
by Siren523 on 2015/02/26 16:30
Love the app it's easy and the gift cards are great!
Absolutely Fantastic
by MollyEH12 on 2015/02/26 15:49
Easy to use and grouped by store, this app is so convenient! It may take a while to get enough rewards to cash in, but it lets you save on almost anything, especially in the Lowes Foods category.
My favorite rewards app!!
by Misscutt on 2015/02/26 13:59
Awesome & Rewarding!
by Bad boy 75686 on 2015/02/26 08:32

SO Easy!
by Strong2015 on 2015/02/26 03:19
Wish I had done this earlier! Love being able to save money without "cutting" coupons! Everyone should join Ibotta!
Don't waste your time used to be better
by OldIbottauser on 2015/02/26 02:32
They constantly denied my pictures because apparently they were not right. Used to love this time now they find any excuse to not reward you for your time and purchases. Deleting and unsubscribing from emails for sure!
by Melbaquick on 2015/02/26 02:25
Love this app!
Useful app & improving
by Mom2kidsandadog on 2015/02/26 01:04
I use this app only a few times and so for accumulated $4.50. Think that it could be especially useful when doing a lot of shopping and or shopping regularly. Plan to use it more often. I have found some issues with items not being part of the database, but so far customer service has been very helpful and correcting that so that the rebate can still be credited.
Shut the **** up
by wesleyvanderpool on 2015/02/26 01:03
Literally the most annoying app of all. You guys offer a great service, but your email and app notifications are ridiculous.
Great app
by Jallas on 2015/02/26 00:52
Easy to use and really helpful when you're on a budget. Love being able to get a discount on Naked Juice!
Easy to use and make some money

Easy peasy
by mommaofjla on 2015/02/25 20:07
This app is super simple to use. The only thing that has changed with my shopping is now I'm getting paid to do it! Can't go wrong with that.
No complaints

Awesome App!!!
by AyaNbing05 on 2015/02/25 18:12
Loved this app!!! Works great and earned you real cash back!!!
Real money for stuff you already buy
by Maryk4rls on 2015/02/25 18:00
I've earned over $100 from this app! Easy to use, easy to transfer the money to my PayPal and into my bank account. I'd recommend it to anyone to earn money for purchases you already make and to try out new items. Love it!!!
Loved it
by GroverJ on 2015/02/25 15:18
I've been using this app for about 6 months & it was great in the beginning. Lately the offers have been for things I'd never buy. There are 46 offers for Wal~Mart right now and I'd only use 2 or 3 of them.
Was better before...
by In Him always on 2015/02/25 14:18
I loved this app in the beginning. However, now they've become too interested in fad items. Younger folks might be all about wine and new types of sweeteners, but most young folks don't care about saving money at the grocery store! They rarely shop at the grocery store! Older people on fixed incomes, and families raising children are the ones who are buying the Sunday paper for the coupons, using Ibotta & other savings apps to reduce the cost of groceries. We're interested in saving money on ground beef, chicken, cereal, bread & fresh fruit - the things we use everyday packing lunches and PREPARING meals.
I love this app!
by Jw13440 on 2014/05/08 11:48
It's a great app, who wouldn't want to get money back on their purchases!? Id like to see the deals change more often, especially for things that I'm more inclined to buy. My big suggestion is that for when we might have multiple deals on one receipt purchase, there should be an option to add another deal to the list before entering the receipt for verification. I had 7 deals on one receipt last time and had to enter each item individually so I had to take a picture of the same receipt 7 times. Id just like to click click and go. So basically: add a deal, scan to verify the item, add all other deals applicable and verify (if multiple deals on one receipt), take one pic of the receipt, all deals on that receipt can be checked and verified at once. I think that would be much more efficient for whoever verifies this stuff as well as for those entering it in for redemption, rather than getting one thing approved from the receipt and then have to wait 4 hours or more for all the other deals on that receipt to be approved. If it's entered all together at one time it takes way less time to verify, and also keeps the person verifying from having to look at separate entries from the same receipt over and over again.
by Alyssa kiyomi on 2014/04/03 16:02
I started using this app when it first came out! At first it was a smaller database with only a few items, but now it has grown to a variety of stores and products! I have already earned over $500 on this app (proof on Instagram- couponingprincessss) I made so much money by staying dedicated, referring friends and followers and completing bonuses! The ibotta team has been more than happy every time to help me out with any issues that may happen. I love this app and it has saved me a lot of money! I would like to thank ibotta and it's team for amazing service! And I also love how they are stationed in Colorado!! Woohoo! Colorado pride! One thing I wish this app had was more variety in the beauty department. I am huge into beauty products and there is a whole beauty community that would appreciate that kind of addition! Also maybe exclusive to Colorado and other states participating in the legalization of marijuana, there could maybe be some rebates for marijuana shops also! Just a thought but that industry is growing fast also!(: anyways...thanks so much ibotta! This app is one of my faves! EVERYONE NEEDS THIS!
This is great!
by Scooterfly20 on 2014/10/02 07:43
I haven't been using this app for long, I just found it maybe a week ago. But I'm excited, especially after I successfully submitted my first purchases for rebates. It was pretty simple to do, I didn't mind scanning the items or taking a photo of my receipt. I had a VERY long receipt; yet I was able to capture all of it. It wasn't long before I got a notification that everything had been verified and I'm on my way to redeeming! The only thing that I look forward to seeing change (I hope) is more product options. Although I am not complaining; it was pretty awesome that I could choose my own favorite brands when it came to bread, eggs and milk. Also, I had the ability to use this app for coupons and still use my in-store coupons. I like to shop at Safeway and Fred Meyer which both have coupon apps which allow me to load the coupons to my account. Since I don't have to carry any of those coupons with me it's nice because then I can't forget them at home. Pretty cool what you can do now to save money, if you just take the time!
Great For Some Extra Cash!
by xoJemimah on 2015/01/11 05:14
I just made $15 in a few weeks but $10 of it was from the "clothing" category of rebates. So it was due to my little shopping spree at the mall at the end of December and just a few days ago. I just wish the grocery category offered more products. And I do agree with someone saying that there should be rebates for almond milk because we don't buy regular milk in our house anymore. My complaint about the bread rebate is that it's the sliced loafs of bread, we buy flatbreads or the fresh ones from the grocery store's bakery department 😓. I cooompletely support the produce rebate suggestion. My mom buys so many fruits and veggies. Other than that, TOTALLY recommend this app! The $15 rebate I earned just helped me pay off some online shopping 😂. That reminds me, please offer more stores for the clothing category rebate. I don't shop at Aeropostale... who really does? And who actually spends like $75 in that store when everything is dirt cheap??? I LOVE how it has Express and Sephora. Please add Guess, Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister, Fossil, H&M, etc. just more appealing stores than. The Ibotta to PayPal transfer was FAST. Took literally seconds to transfer 😊👏.
Really works! $35 already!
by Saratothebeth on 2013/08/23 15:17
I really love this app! Fresh fruits, organic, and whole food options! I love it! I have bought stuff I would never try and I have hated some (the coconut water) and loved others! We buy almond milk about 3-4 weekly and the SAMs pack was $2 store extra. That made each half gallon only a little over a dollar each! I have loved the Target bonuses because our Target just added the grocery section - but the only draw back is that I live in a tourist city and all the tourist and their IBOTTA app are beating me to the punch! Some of the deals at target like the EVOL. items were buy 2 get 1 - then with the .75 back - it made it a real deal! Thank you ibotta!!! My only bad thing is - there is a bonus I can't complete because I already bought the item. The koolaid bonus is buy both koolaid products from SAMs and I already bought the jammers the first day I got the app! I wish the app took your personal purchases into account. Maybe the updates in the future will be more personalized! If not, I will live and still love it!!!
Agree with other reviewers...
by MyWalgreensKnowsMeWell on 2014/09/25 15:05
I would have given this 5 stars a few weeks ago, but had an almost identical experience with other reviewers. I verified several items without stopping to consider I would not be able to submit the two receipts ("one receipt is pending..." message appeared). I did get a reply that oddly said based on my account, I was given credit for "everything," which raised an eyebrow because I hadn't told them what I had on the second receipt (regardless of what I verified initially). Like one of the mom reviewers said, we just don't have the time to do a cat and mouse email exchange, we were just wanting to save some money. I think that it would be a helpful upgrade to allow more than one receipt be submitted at one time. Otherwise, I am thoroughly enjoying accruing a stash of "fun money," especially if I am able to utilize Ibotta, Checkout 51, AND Shopmium. They all tend to feature the same items, and as a person who clips coupons but forgets to bring them to the store, this takes away the guilt of not saving, because I save in triplicate!
Real cash for buying what you use!
by Kn0xWatcher on 2015/02/23 08:18
I love IBOTTA! Took me a couple minutes to get the gist of it, but now, it's all here! All items you redeem can be placed and verified on one receipt, extra pic sections can be added for those super long receipts, if you're not a drinker, you don't have to see things you're never going to buy, AND they pay you real money for buying things you want to try or already use! Only suggestion I'd make is get MORE RESTAURANTS to take part in the IBOTTA program...We love Chili's & Quiznos, but how about maybe Ruby Tuesday, Red Lobster, etc.? Add some places everyone goes and if possible, please try to get in with K-VA-TN/Food City! 95%of the ppl in KY, VA & TN shop at this store and you'd get a lot more action, too! Love it and highly recommend using this app on top of your paper and digital couponing (or) just by itself! Truly a blessing for shoppers and a great way to get real cash dropped into your account for your purchases! One of the most used apps on my phone, and for good reason: I'm getting paid to go shopping! 👍
Do the contests actually have prize winner?
by Roserdh on 2013/12/24 00:47
I really like this ap. It would be better if they had more items to qualify, making it easier to earn $. Right now they are ridiculously limited. When I first started using the ap it was easy to buy a few of the items, but now I am stuck with a choice of items I would never use, like diapers and formula for my 20 year old? My next complaint, the big one, is that this company has contests all the time but they don't post winners. The contest rules say they will notify you via the ap, but then states the "spencer"of the contest can notify you how ever they want, choose not to give the prizes out, and other crap! I am probably going to remove the ap soon because I don't like shady crap. Either run contests, play by fair rules, notify winners as you state, and prove you actually give out the prizes; or DON'T. ****** they also have no customer contact! as in if you want to give feedback, to bad! they don't care! because they have no contact information listed . Hopefully they read reviews or I would guess this ap will have a very short life.
Makes shopping fun!
by KKPinCO on 2012/10/10 16:31
If you're like me and hate the hassle of clipping coupons almost as much as you hate the chore of grocery shopping, this app is for you! There are so many great features included with this app above and beyond the opportunity to rack up savings - some of my favorites are the shopping list generator, the barcode scanner to confirm the product you've selected qualifies, and the ability to like/dislike products to fine tune the offers to your preferences. I also LOVE the time savings achieved by not having to amass paper coupons, keeping track of which ones I've used while roaming around the store, and then waiting while all those coupons are scanned at checkout - it's couponing for the modern age! Plus, it's fun and easy to use, and gives you the opportunity to pass on your savings as a charitable contribution to the school of your choice. How cool is that??? In short, download and use this app- I know you'll love it as much as I do!
Loved it! - but lowering rating
by Lesly :) :) on 2013/12/05 05:30
This was an easy to use enjoyable app however Ive had to lower my rating. Its very frustrating if your receipt cant be verified multiple times and there is no way to contact someone for help. the latest version seems to be more "picky" with processing the receipts. my ability to not get my receipt processed & not be able to reach someone to problem solve is frustrating! i've had items expire in the mean time and am losing money. It is really ticking me off! Some amount of customer service needs to be around. Also, if an offer expires at midnight it may not be in your time zone. i lost money this way too. Prior to using this app regularly...-This is a fairly easy fun way to earn some coffee money! Hopefully it grows so there are more & more offers. So far there are only a few at a time I'm interested in. My only complaint so far is that if your receipt image isn't readable you have to rescan all the product again too. You should have an option to just resubmit a new receipt picture.
by Georgiagina on 2014/02/22 21:06
I can't say enough good things about this app. It is fun to use. I have tried so many great products that I would not have otherwise given a second look. But, Ibotta giving a cash incentive for a try, I did, love many of them, and now purchase regularly. Sure there are some I don't care for, but at least I got paid to try it! And customer service for the app is terrific too. I recently was showing a new user that I referred how to use the app. We went shopping together and redeemed our purchased together, but I managed to mix up the receipts and submitted the same one for both our purchases so it all got rejected. I made such a mess out of it! I wrote customer service and they fixed it within 24 hours! AWESOME! So, I highly recommend this app. And you companies out there, you should sign on with Ibotta because if you have a product I can use and I see it there, I will definitely give it a try!
by Gmr1983 on 2015/02/19 22:34
I recently had an issue with a receipt not being excepted because the ink was running out and it was messed up. I had 4 rebates on that receipt. I submitted my issue and they took a closer look at the receipt and gave me rebates! So pleased!! However, I would like to see fresh produce offered for rebates! I buy a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables! I also find it a little aggravating when trying to earn a badge and my friends have already helped at their part that any purchases beyond that doesn't go toward the next reward...the $10 rewards this month took me forever because there wasnt items offered for rebates that I used. Otherwise I have found this app easy to use and pretty simple to follow. Ive earned almost $100 in 6 months...which is great considering I don't buy half if what is offered but it has been enough for me too enjoy getting money for products I DO buy regularly!
Good Couponing app
by JLECjuno1525 on 2015/02/22 12:54
I've been using this for a couple years and it works well. I've had no problems with payouts to my paypal account. Wish there was a bigger variety. Sometimes I look at the rebates and there is nothing that we use, other times there a number of things. Also wish it was universal across all of the stores. Last week I bought a few Ibotta items at Shop Rite, but the rebates weren't showing up for that grocery store while they were showing up for Wegman's. The App won't give me the gallon milk rebate for BJ's where the gallon of milk is 2 half gallons banded together. Also wish there was something easier than taking pics of your receipt, like maybe just taking pics of the Ibotta items on your receipt and the total. We're a family of 7 and my grocery receipts tend to be very long. It can take me 5 minutes to take a full pic to earn $0.25 or $0.50. A little frustrating. Overall though I like this app. It's worth a try.
Lost rebate
by Bee_sweet on 2014/05/22 14:10
I have enjoyed the savings from ibotta but I didn't get a second chance to submit a receipt for a rebate that has issue with "receipt pending" for not scanning correctly. I tried emailing and locating the rebate in the store category that I bought it from but the item icon was no longer there for me to verify my product and receipt for my second submission. Also you need to have time to do this. I had to wait for each item that I bought for verification. Secondly, a much inconvenience is ibotta won't accept duplicate receipts. I bought three qualified products at the same store on the same receipt. Well ibotta did not accept this. Basically their terms of use is "we cannot accept duplicate receipts," meaning there has to have a different receipt for each each rebate. For example, CVS has about 36 rebates currently and ibotta wants you to submit 36 different a receipts which is sooo inconvenient as a shopper with kids and not a lot of time in my hands. I hope in the future I will be able to click on the three items icon to verify one time on the same receipt.
A Great app!
by gumdropT on 2013/12/27 13:44
UPDATE- ok I finally got a hold of IBOTTA (I had to contact them through the website for IBOTTA), the support guy was very nice and tried everything he could to help. We ended up having to put in a new email for my app and that did the trick! I really love this app and now that I can cash out I love it even more! UPDATE- I can not get the app to send me an email with the Starbucks gift card I cashed out for! I've resent it many times! Also I click report an issue and I have yet to hear from ibotta! And I've sent it multiple times! If I ever get this fixed I'll give this app 5 stars again, but what's the point of using this app if I can't cash out?!?! -I really like this app! It's easy to use and is great for earning money on thing I buy anyway! I just wish there were more items to choose from and a setting that allowed you to manage what offers you receive.
I love this app
by onwardgo on 2013/02/08 23:50
I love to save money using coupons and now this allows me to earn money back. I love how there is an option that allows you to tell them weather you like them item or not (thumbs up or thumbs down by pressing information symbol on the top right of the product). When you give a thumbs down, it will replace the item with something else. And if you like them on FaceBook, you be able to keep up with their updates. They recently asked for copies of your receipts for Family Dollar, Food Lion, Albertsons, etc.. so they can work on getting those stores to be added to the app. I just don't see how anyone can dislike this app. It's basically free money back. It's working on getting better. They just added the grocery store Bi-Lo. And if you have a verified Pay-Pal account, you can get money transferred to your account without any fees.
Earning money but it's frustrating to use sometimes...
by Likealittleangel on 2014/09/15 10:52
iBotta is a cool concept and I have earned over a $100 in rebates since I downloaded it just over a month ago. However, it has it's issues and I don't find it that convenient. First, you have to unlock the rebates and some are overly time consuming. I hate when I have to post to twitter or FB to qualify. Also, after purchasing you have to scan each item and then your receipt. You have to do a lot of work to get the $$. I did enjoy the test market with Whole Foods and the iBotta card on your phone to be scanned by the cashier. If that becomes a feature in the near future, at all stores, then this would be so much better. :) I do like iBotta and the customer service has been great!!! Overall a win and must have if you enjoy earning some extra money and sometimes trying things you may not have otherwise!
Best of the lot
by Hicosin on 2015/02/06 05:24
I have tried MULTIPLE coupon apps and iBotta is hands down the best of them all. The coupons do not get used up like on Snap (where if too many people use a coupon too bad for you) and are for things I actually purchase unlike the little-known brands on Checkout 51. And it has more generic (any milk, any bread, etc.) coupons than the others (because those are always first to go on Snap). Plus it largely does not require you to track down your grocery store card (like SavingStar). The only thing that the other apps may have better is that iBotta appears to have coupons limited to certain stores whereas the others don't care where you buy what. But hey when I have maybe $5 on the other apps and $99 on iBotta there is really no comparison. I recommend it on Facebook and to everyone I know.
Good idea, frustrating implementation
by lovezice on 2014/12/08 00:49
The idea is solid: provide coupons, have people give evidence of purchase, pay. But the software is less than solid. Downright frustrating at times. Why can't I take selected coupons away once I verified that my supermarket doesn't carry the specific sku? Why can't I shop at Remke (or any other store that allows a direct link with their loyalty card) without actually having a loyalty card (using the photograph the receipt procedure)? I can designate a few stores as "favorites", but that designation doesn't seem to do much. The "faved" stores are still hidden in the endless list of participating grocery stores. Talking about which: why isn't this list at least sorted alphabetically? Why isn't there an easy way to search (say by typing in the first letter(s) of the store name)? And why, once I'm in a store, don't I get at least a hint where I could find an item? Finally: what the software really needs is the functionality to create a shopping list (similar to Grocery IQ). The idea is good. The software really needs work.
Love it!!!
by Kmoliveaux on 2013/12/02 03:45
Great way to make extra money, actual dollars not "reward points". Selection is good, however sometimes the name brands are not carried in the stores here, as we have a smaller retail market. But that's to somewhat be expected. Not every Target is going to carry exactly the same things, I understand. There was not a very wide learning curve when I first started. That would be my biggest complaint. What was simple misunderstanding of the functionality of the app was interpreted as possible fraud which got my account deactivated the first week. However, the customer service was great and they did get the problem resolved and my account reactivated. Dealing with real dollars I understand they need to be strict, but I wish the rules were less legalistic and easier to understand. But it is a great way to make extra cash, try new products, and the redemption process is super easy!!
Electric Coupons at their best!!
by Mamadove on 2014/12/11 14:04
I have been using Ibotta for the last six months. This great App has saved me or earned me over $135. That is a lot of money for buying groceries. I find Ibotta has the coupons that are relevant to the food I'm eating or desiring to try. The interface is easy and it tells me when I'm close to a participating store. It has so many places more added all the time. Ibotta has lead me to try new shopping places to check out different coupons or somewhere that I can try new foods for me and my family, or discounts at a electronic shop. They are all there! I love getting paid to go to a movie and I have easy access to the funds that I earn with Ibotta. I have and will continue to recommend Ibotta to everyone I know. This App is the best I've used this year, it is the greatest!!
Love it
by cnix729 on 2012/12/20 13:12
I already do coupons on a regular basis to save money for my family and this is just another great way to do it. I have been using the app for 4 days and have already saved $11. I think that's pretty good. It is not that much effort and if you plan on buying the products anyway then you are just saving yourself even more money. I don't believe in buying something just because you get a deal on it. I downloaded this app the day after I went to the store and already had 3 things to redeem, so I saved more money on the things I had already bought. I think that is a pretty good deal. If you think this takes too much effort then you must just be lazy. It only takes a few minutes to save several dollars at a time. So if you like saving money then this app is one way to do it.
Love it!
by BooBooBrains on 2014/02/01 13:33
I was always terrible with coupons. I'd cut them out once in awhile then forget to take them to the store or if I did remember them, they were probably expired! Ibotta is great because its always right there on my phone. Plus the amount you get back is often more than a coupon would be, PLUS if you are good with coupons, you can actually use a coupon for an item offered by Ibotta and get even more savings! I love the any brand offers or milk, eggs, etc. I have been using it since July when I was laid off and have already earned $125, which I have used to order stuff online and paid with Paypal. A few times I had trouble with items not scanning properly and it was corrected almost immediately. No complaints from me! Great app!
It could be better.
by Tashah07 on 2014/10/17 23:35
It's obviously exciting to get money for things you buy, but 99% of the items on here are items that no one really buys on a regular basis if at all! Now and again we get a gallon of milk or bread, I've had the app for several months now and have only made 2 dollars and some change. Also, why are the same items for every store? It's slightly discouraging to even try to use this app. Finally, I shopped at kohls and ended up spending 200 dollars, I was excited to cash in for my 10 dollars for shopping at kohls, only to find out the purchase had to be top it off, you would have to give permission for ibotta or kohls to post things on Twitter for you, who wants that? I waited till now to post my rating, just so I could really get my feel for the app. Obviously there's too many people pulling the trigger on there rating too quickly.
Great App, Local Stores Would Make It Better!
by GEN_PHROZ3N on 2013/11/30 15:17
I love the app! I do wish that there were more local stores. For instance, I work at a restaurant/grocery store combo, and buy almost everything there... So I can't get money back very often because it's not supported. I wish it was easier to get new locations added. Also I wish you could see all offers at once like you used to be able to do, it's weird to see the same thing in each store... Make one big list and then make the "default" for each store be the exclusive offers so I don't see the same offer 50 times with no new offers! Another great option would be if I could select stores I use and hide the rest, many stores aren't even in my area, or I'm not able to use them (ie military commissary) so they are useless to me.
Easy to use
by Haley Edwards 304 on 2014/12/08 18:17
I've had this for 2-3 months and only have earned $8 but I mainly only use it for milk, bread and water. It would be cool if I didn't have to connect with Facebook to get additional savings on some items because I do not have a Facebook and won't get one just for the extra .25c here and there. I don't see how it could pay for someone's vacation in a year but if you're buying everything on this list I guess it could. Kind of hate how when you select "groceries" it shows home cleaners and teeth whitening items/make up- etc, that's not groceries to me and I hate having to look through that stuff to find other food items I might buy. Still give it 5 stars though cause it's simple and easy to use.
by DeputyJT on 2014/10/14 18:20
I love it! Just scan your receipt and scan the items you purchased for free cash back savings, I normally scan my items as soon as I get home before putting them all away it's easy and it's done. I received quite a bit of cash back on top of the coupons and in-store deals some of these things I get for free or their actually paying me to buy that product. I do not purchase things I'm not going to use… How can making money be any easier! Four instance a few months back you got a absolutely free crockpot if you stayed with in the dollar amount they were offering, if not like I did I got a better crockpot and just paid five dollars difference for an upgrade and still got the cashback!
I love this App!
by Nat2581 on 2015/02/12 11:27
I love using this app, BUT there aren't a lot I can use! I'm not going to go out of my way to buy products I won't use. That saying, if there is a product that I've been thinking of trying, I will try it if it's on here! I love love the any milk, bread, cereal rebates! It would be so great if there could be fresh fruits and veggies! I also see products available at some stores and not others, it would be great to have them available at all or more stores. It's frustrating to see a whole list of products I use listed at a store that isn't even in my area! I also think, with the teamwork challenges, that if you go over the amount, the extra falls into the next step! Overall this is an awesome, easy to use, savings app! I have made $85 since I downloaded!
Love love love this!
by Momofa2yrold on 2014/07/26 13:57
This app is good. I have tried some new things because of this app. I love the fact that I can use a coupon AND make money from this app too! Only a few things that aren't that great. I recently completed a bonus with chex mix, I was paid for all the chex mix but the bonus only registered that I did 67% of it. I emailed in and haven't heard any thing back. Also, the same rebates are always available. I would like them to be more frequently updated. It's nice if the item is something your family uses but for things you don't use they stay for months. I've also found that many of the brands are not available anywhere around my area. This would be a awesome if it were regional perhaps and had offers update more frequently.
Total scam - you can't cash out
by VolksVW on 2014/09/24 19:39
At first, this app seemed cool. I could earn rebates for some things I buy and then get money sent to my PayPal account or a gift card, right? Not quite. Now that I have enough money to cash out, when I try to cash out, it says I have to verify my email address by following the link that they supposedly just sent to my email. Only they don't send an email with the link. They don't send an email at all. I even reset my email address. Nothing. So I sent an email to them about the issue. Zero response. And in case you're thinking it's a problem with my email, it's not. The ibotta newsletter comes in just fine. Two phone calls to ibotta went unanswered as well. I even tried having it reset to my alternate email and have the link sent there. Nothing. Don't fall for the scam. And definitely don't write a positive review until you've tried to cash out, because you're not going to get your money.
I Love This App! ^_^.
by CrazyCindy4u on 2013/09/19 19:00
I Love this app. I guess you can say I'm hooked at times cause I'm always wanting to shop, But only for the products I normally buy. There have been times I have purchased things I never knew existed or tasted and so my family and I bought the product we tried it and we like it and still got paid! ^_^. One thing I would like for Ibotta to do is add more stores I normally shop in and that are near my area and add more good stuff I think you should add more products every weekend that way we have more choices to buy different products every week. I give this app two thumbs up! Thank you Ibotta I love this app and I do recommend it to anyone who loves to shop save money and gets paid. 👍👍^_^.
Good, and room for improvement
by MarkBMarkB on 2014/11/01 19:37
I like using Ibotta and have gotten back over $100 using it. There are things I'd like to see improved though: - Especially when a store doesn't carry the required size of an item, accept multiples of a smaller size that meet or exceed the amount you need to buy. - When none of the partner stores in your area carry an item, accept a purchase from a non-partner store, and follow up with the non-partner store to get them on board, not force the user to do the leg work. I understand there may be technical difficulties with scanning a receipt from a non-partner store, but this is solveable. - Sometimes I have to verify the barcode on an item multiple times - in the store and when I'm redeeming the offer. Once should be enough.
Good concept, just needs more variety.
by Ladysuit on 2013/11/24 22:59
This is actually my second time downloading this app, the first time I wasn't exactly thrilled with the product choices and updates on lists seemed to take forever. Now, the app seems to offer a more diverse range of products. I don't necessarily buy all of the products but there are still enough that I get a good payoff. It does take time to get to a good level but throughout the process you get to investigate lots of different products and (if you're sensible) get additional savings by matching manufacturer coupons to listed products. I recently gained more due to the addition of home improvement deals and restaurants. Overall, if you do the majority of your households grocery shopping it is worth downloading.
Great App but could be better
by Alane79 on 2015/02/17 23:20
This app is great don't get me wrong, however there were some items I scanned that would NOT show up no matter what I did. I accidentally deleted an item and there is no way of getting the item back. I think there should be a way of obtaining items back. I also think there should be a rebate on each item you purchased not just one item. I buy many duplicate items such as yogurts and two - two gallons of milk, etc. and this app only allows you to receive a rebate for one. One more thing, I think the "craft" for Michaels needs to be something other than what's listed. If we are talking arts and crafts then I'm purchasing supplies not holders or little kids stuff. Other than that I find it's pretty nifty!!
Too much hassle
by Gordon Green on 2014/02/25 07:05
This app really was too much work for the $7 I've earned in like 6 months. They don't have offers for many things I buy AND recently I purchased milk per the rules of an offer and then when I got home and tried to claim it, the app had me scan the barcode and it said the item didn't match the offer. Really? The offer was for any brand of milk. I bought whole organic milk from Shamrock Farms! Then the next time I tried to claim 2 offers on one receipt, I provided clear pictures of the entire receipt and they replied back saying they couldn't process my claim because they couldn't read the receipt. I had submitted the same quality of pictures to Checkout 51 for other items on the receipt and they processed my order in less than 24 hours. Ibotta still hasn't responded to me since I replied back with a complaint. Ridiculous.
Don't like Facebook, video or twitter tasks
by Runner spooney on 2014/08/19 05:12
I have been using ibotta for awhile. Things I love: you can cash out at $5, they often replace an item so you can buy it more than once, large variety of stores and items. Things I don't love: having To post on Facebook, deals that are store specific, Twitter tasks (I only used twitter for posting on ibotta and my account was deactivated), customer service takes a long time to get back to you, you earn paypal credit and not cash. However the most challenging part of ibotta was the video tasks that would not play on my phone. I spoke over and over to support and they kept saying it was my device and would give me tips but none worked. finally they said there was nothing else they could do! Frustrating when you push play on the video and the screen is black- doesn't seem like my issue at all!
An App With Great Potential
by Zaise_Chsa on 2013/07/23 04:08
It's easy to use, it ACTUALLY pays you money, is very accurate and quick when reviewing the receipt. It says that it can take up to 24 hours for redemption of credit, but they usually review my receipt in about 2-4 hours. I would give it a 5-star rating if it weren't for two things that get it off one star each. The first is that the only way to redeem your credits for cash is through PayPal. While I understand it was probably the easiest route, I rather dislike dealing with PayPal when I can. Secondly, the products that one can redeem credits for are limited and unhealthy at best, as well as the fact I rarely buy any products available, so getting to the $5 minimum took me a while. If they had more options than just Paypal and more products it would be a 5-star all.
Great in theory but disappointed

I love the idea of this app, but I have to admit I'm a little disappointed. I've tried to redeem a couple offers but no matter what I tried, ibotta kept rejecting my picture of the receipt. I tried various lights, at different angles, etc but it just kept denying. After trying for 45 minutes to get it to accept a picture of my receipt, I decided the $.25 I would earn wasn't worth me wasting any more time. I wish ibotta would link to a lot more rewards cards so you wouldn't have to mess with keeping receipts, taking pictures and submitting them. I use another app called Savingstar that links up with all of my cards. I choose my reward and within a couple days the money shows in my account. I use that app very often and wish ibotta was more similar to it.
Good so far

It does what it says it will do. It's pretty easy to use except you can't input any preferences. For example I don't eat any diet foods or drinks yet they are always on Ibotta and the things I do eat or use is seldom a featured item. You also should read the description of the item in full detail because some are very specific all the way down to the item sizes. The updates have the expiration date which is helpful and they give bonuses for doing so many transactions in a given time. It's interactive and I find it fun to use too. It's better than some other apps that give % cash back because they subtract your coupon amount and I use coupons for everything to get the most savings. I recommend this app
So Far so Good!

I am very happy with this app. I was very reluctant since as a couponer I'm already having a hard enough time as it is trying to keep up with my coupon deals (but I do very well). It was while looking at another site that I saw how much additional money could be saved on items ( making it free) that I thought, well me see what this is about and sure enough I got money queued up for purchases that I already made that day !! I haven't redeemed the money yet but in less than a week I have $10 bucks or more coming my way. And Re: Facebook I really don't like my FB friends knowing my biz but I got over it and just figured it was more important for me to save money.
Can't believe Shop Smart liked this app
by Dyl'sMum on 2014/05/17 19:47
I downloaded this app based on a recommendation from Shop Smart magazine. What a mistake! The offers are repetitive and are for products I'm not interested in. How many Special K protein bars can anyone possibly need? Corelle has been on there forever - not something you need very often. There isn't enough variety. Rebates are approximately equivalent to shopping somewhere that offers double value on coupons. Customer Support was helpful up to a point. I had trouble submitting a Panera receipt and was told to email it to Customer Support. I did but never received credit for that receipt. They've added online shopping but if you're already shopping through Ebates or another site why would you bother changing to this one? This app gets 1 star from me but only because “no stars” isn't an option. I cashed out once I reached the $5 minimum and deleted the app.
Glitches After New Version
by Jessikathesongstress on 2014/02/19 21:37
I am not a big fan of Ibotta. Recently they forced us to download a new version of the app. Unlike Checkout 51, this app forces you to check the product then download the receipt then check the product again. So in all of these steps, the app forced me to check the product and refused to go on to the next page of downloading the receipt after this recent change. It took customer service days to get back with me and they did not credit me with all of their "rewards". Although my phone is new, the customer service agent essentially said that the app malfunction is a problem with my phone. The worst part is although the app does not work correctly, every time I'm in a store related to the app it sends me a "reminder" that they have rebates. Save your time and energy go with Checkout 51.
So much potential, but falls short
by Tienbien1 on 2014/05/17 21:16
I thought this app was great in the beginning, until I realized they almost never update their offers. 80% of the stuff they offer has been the same for the last year, and honestly, I really don't like any of them. For someone that likes to buy basic things like fresh fruits and vegetables, bread, ice cream, meat, cheese, etc. there is virtually no selection whatsoever. I think the only offer I've redeemed at all in months is the milk. Most of the time I don't even bother checking this app any more because nothing ever changes. Do yourself a favor: go get checkout 51 instead. They update their offers very week, always have at least one fresh produce item, you don't have to scan any barcodes, only take a picture of your receipt. And the best part? No store restrictions!!!! Shop anywhere.
Great app!
by Shielaugh on 2014/07/22 01:17
This is not a coupon app, it is a rebate app, which means you have to purchase the item and then go to the app to redeem the rebate by scanning the item and uploading a receipt. To first get the rebate to redeem you have to press the buttons under the item to learn a fact, answer trivia, watch a clip (some items have multiple things you can do to make the rebate higher before redeeming). I have been using for a week and already made $9.00 on things I buy anyway. Easy to transfer money to paypal or venmo once you have accumulated $5 or more. It's pretty self explanatory, but there's a help button with tutorial if you get tripped up.

I love this App! It is the best! There are other similar App's out there that do not even co2mpare to Ibotta! This was my first week trying it out. A couple of friends had told me about this one and it is so easy to do. I wish I had known about Ibotta all this time that I was using this "other" App!. The amount of products available to earn from is great! And when you complete a product earning, it adds another product within minutes, I also appreciate that there are several different ways to earn from each product purchase! Love it! If you're looking for an App like this, look no further, this is the only one you need!
Love it!!!!!!!

I have been using Ibotta for only a few short months and I am already somewhere around $80 in savings. I have cashed in a few times and it is super easy, the money is in my account super quick. Any issues I have, I submit under help and they are fixed quickly as well. I saw the last person comment that you can't remove things from your list once you confirm your store doesn't carry it. That is actually not a true statement, when you are in an item just scroll down and mark it not interested and it takes it off your list. I am very happy with it and definitely would recommend.

I've read a few reviews and I have to say this is not a job. You aren't "making money" nor will you "get rich" like some apparently think from some of the reviews I just read. It's like using coupons. You are "SAVING" money. So far I LOVE it. I too would like a better variety and change of products. I've only used it once and saved over $5 my first time. I do NOT like to post to Facebook, so I only post to myself. I'm up to $15 right now. Very convenient, except when you don't scan till the next day and it's no longer available. So scan as soon as you get home, or at the store, then capture pic of receipt after.
An Almost perfect App!
by NW-987 on 2014/08/26 11:40
I want to thank the developers of Ibotta because it is a money saver that is truly easy to use! I like the fun little activities---information, polls, and videos---and how easy the app is to use. There is only one issue I have related to the activities required to unlock certain product rebates: posting products to one's Facebook page apropos of nothing. I wouldn't object to this quite as much if the posts were reworked: in place of a silly post about a particular body wash, why not one that read, "Ibotta just saved me x amount of money on (fill in the blank)" or something to that effect? Still, I recommend Ibotta to everyone. If you like to save money, Ibotta is a must-have app.
Good app and I enjoy the savings

I like the variety of the items and love the milk rebates as that is a constant purchase for me so it is great to get money back. I would like to see the offers change up more as it seems many of the offers stick around for months and then good ones that are features are there and gone in a matter of a week. There needs to be a better way to exchange the offers for the products that you wont buy that stay for a long time in order to clear them out and have new ones show up. But other than that I like this app and it has made a lot of good changes in just the 11 months I have used it keeping me an active user.
