Love it, but...
by QueenChelles on 2015/07/04 23:08
When I found out about this app, I was thrilled. This is sooooo awesome. It's easy to use. I like the tips and polls, always cute. I get annoyed when trying to redeem for produce, it like NEVER works. I scan if I can, enter the numbers, submit never works on that option so I just don't get those rebates. All in all, very great app, so helpful in my savings quests!!
Great money saving app
by AllyByatch on 2015/07/04 21:42
Like this better than snap by Groupon.
Support
by Kittycatinkc on 2015/07/04 19:39
Looking at the requirements for customer service support, the minimum to apply is a bachelor degree, but, support is zero, I don't think these people know what customer service is. Emails and questions are never answered. The app itself is great and the rebates are awesome. Needs lots of work in the customer support area.

This is an awesome app! Money comes quick
Easy and fun to use
by Redleaf27 on 2015/07/04 17:10
The interface is super easy and actually fun to use. And I really appreciate that the rebates are not all brand specific, allowing me the freedom to purchase what I actually WANT to buy, brand-wise. That's actually the biggest positive for me. Most times rebates are offered on junk food, or random brands I'm not interested in. This allows me the freedom to buy organic, or local brands, which is awesome!!
Great App
by Dee10207777 on 2015/07/04 16:11
This is a very useful app. I have saved over $8 in just 2 weeks of using. Would definitely recommend. My only suggestion would be that less alcohol coupons be offered and more daily use products be included.
Great app!
by Leah_090186 on 2015/07/04 16:06
This app is awesome!
Awesome!
by Foxmom94 on 2015/07/04 15:58
Love this app...made $10 the first time I used it (and it was for items already on my grocery list!). The only recommendation I have is to make it so when you are reviewing offers, there is an indicator of some sort to show if you have completed the activities. Right now, you have to open every offer to see if you have done the activities. Other than that small thing, I would rate this app a perfect 10 if I could!
Great App
by Bamboow1 on 2015/07/04 15:43
Love the rebates I get from it. App does crash a lot .
OMG IT WORKS AND ITS FREAKING AWESOME
by (Jackie) on 2015/07/04 13:56
When I downloaded I had in mind this doesn't work, but when I tried it out, it actually worked! iBotta is a awesome way to get cash when you get the things u need! 5/5
Excellent app
by Ramiekaur on 2015/07/04 13:43
Thank you for a user friendly interface
No reason not to!
by Aychee F on 2015/07/04 07:28
Except for the occasional canned reply email that there was no date included on your receipt-when indeed there was, it's def worth it.
Easy
by Savii07 on 2015/07/04 07:19
It's easy to use and you get money back!
Great!!

This app is absolutely awesome! I love getting money back for items that I buy on a regular basis. I wish I would have known about it sooner.
Great money-saving app!
by aliapple22 on 2015/07/04 04:52
I love this app! It makes saving on groceries easy. It offers a variety of products each week. Rebates rack up quickly- I've cashed out several times now. It's nice to have a variety of cash out options. I do wish some of the video ads were less repetitive. I also liked a suggestion another user made about starred items moving to the top of the list.
Like the app
by Latmar1 on 2015/07/04 03:41
I like to use the app in Food Lion. It links to your loyalty card. That's so much better than having to take a picture of the receipt and scanning the item.
App crashes
by SixStringFool on 2015/07/04 02:09
App crashes every time I try to take a picture of the receipt. I'm using an iPhone 5s.
Too many hoops to jump through
by guest6981 on 2015/07/04 02:02
I agree with a lot of people on here that complain about the issues they had with failed receipts. If you submit multiple receipts at a time theres no indication as to which receipt or which items they had difficulty processing… and by the time you hear back from them you’ve either thrown away the receipt or the packaging (barcode). Also I don’t like the fact that you have to watch a video or take a survey and get no reward for that step. I’m a member of other marketing and market research sites that give you money for that kind of engagement. My final complaint is the segregation of rebates to select stores only. I bought an item which I remembered I saw on ibotta from Safeway but the rebate was only available when bought from a different store.
Fun!!! Money back guarantee!!
by munchsmami on 2015/07/04 01:58
This app is by far one of my favorite of all time! You buy and save anything and then it comes back to you in the form of cash!'
Great
by zoo house on 2015/07/03 23:12
I love it
Not so great
by B1GCity on 2015/07/03 22:41
I've been using for a bit now and recently discovered that many of my "any brand" rebates are not being accepted. They are valid purchases. You really need to pay very close attention, especially when there are bonus rebates at stake. It's almost as though they don't want the any brand rebates to succeed.
Review
by hkozrn on 2015/07/03 21:47
I have made almost $200 in 1 year. I love Ibotta!
Great app!
by Boobles90210 on 2015/07/03 21:21
I love it, give me more ANY options - it can't be called ANY if the local grocery store isn't included :(
DO NOT USE!!!!
by Krist12110255 on 2015/07/03 20:58
They will randomly deactivate your account and keep your money!!!! There is no phone number to call to get problems resolved. It's all done through email and they take days to respond IF they even do! They will make up whatever excuse they want as to why they deactivated your account and you will not recover your losses.
Love Ibotta!!
by Lizzy Guinn on 2015/07/03 20:57
Great app!
Even fruits and veggies!
by FiberGirl on 2015/07/03 20:38
The problem I always had with apps of this nature is that there were so few rebate items that I actually bought. With ibotta I can get rebates on fresh fruits and vegetables! Love the variety of grocery and non-grocery items available for rebates. Also love the team feature which can get you added rebates.
Money back
by Millwrightpt on 2015/07/03 20:33
For stuff you were gonna buy anyway.
New Rebates!
by rvaughn1027 on 2015/07/03 19:40
When I first downloaded the app, the rebates were few and far between. Now, they have a lot of generic rebates, like "any brand pasta" or "any brand milk". There isn't a time I go grocery shopping that I can't use the app for extra cash back! Love it!!
good
by lacknskakdjxmadjcn on 2015/07/03 19:18
A good app
Great app but...
by Createanicknamename on 2015/07/03 19:05
Great app. Have gotten money back already just takes several steps to redeem so don't be intimidated at first it will become a habit
Great if you want to earn a bit of cash!
by Charmack5 on 2015/07/03 18:36
All you have to do is tap what you bought. Tap the challenge and boom. You have money.
Love it

Love this so much
by Momofreke on 2015/07/03 15:44
Right now I use it when I grocery shop to earn FREE money on the stuff I buy. Then I'm able to take that money and get more! Totally worth it
Awesome
by Dreday0909 on 2015/07/03 15:26
Loving it so far!
Easy $
by Robin Erdman on 2015/07/03 15:21
Great App!!!! Easy to use!
Love this app and what it offers
by Cheech6288 on 2015/07/03 15:18
I was sceptic all at first, because we don't really buy packaged foods that you typically see coupons or rebates for, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that I can get coupons and rebates for buying fresh or frozen veggies! I was also surprised that they offer rebates for eggs, milk, and OJ of any brand, so you could even use it on the organic brands, for which rebates are so hard to come by. I am definitely keeping this app, unlike others I've tried.
I love this app!
by Cindyl76 on 2015/07/03 14:23
This app gets better & better. I started using back in the winter and at the the time they had some products that I didn't buy. Now they offer things like eggs, milk, bread (and not brand specific), plus produce. I highly recommend to everyone.
Convenient & Simple!
by burdissl on 2015/07/03 14:12
No need to clip coupons anymore! Ibotta is a great app. You can scan your grocery list before heading to the store and know exactly what items will give you a kickback! Wish I would have found this app sooner!
Great but could be better
by Tkallspice on 2015/07/03 09:33
I love this app., I just hate that because I use it so much that they keep saying that they couldn't find the items that I submitted on the receipt even when I separated the purchases they act like they don't want you to use the app. But in the beginning it was fun and easy.
Easy & relevant!
by jme0601 on 2015/07/03 07:01
Have tried other 'rebate' sites but never accumulated much since they didn't have the variety or quantity of items. Ibotta has brands we know & use across many categories plus the 'any brand' options really help increase rebates!
Great app
by Mcbunto on 2015/07/03 05:51
Just wish my friends would use it so I could earn more money. I can get to the first team work challenge on my own, but need help to get more!
LOVE IT
by Imahurtt on 2015/07/03 04:29
LOVE LOVE LOVE this app!!! I pull it up at least once a day! I wish there were more items that I normally buy on there. I love the any brand rebates too!!
Makes shopping fun

Unlike other rebate applications, Ibotta is simple to use. I love using it on any brands & using coupons too.
Great app!!!

This app is great. You get cash back in real money 😃

I have been using this app for only a week, but so far I love it! It's much more user friendly than similar apps.
Love IBotta!!
by Cath238 on 2015/07/02 23:28
I have used this app for several months and have earned over $150 back on products I already use or have wanted to try! It can even be used with store deals, store coupons, and manuf coupons so you can stack the savings. I would recommend to everyone!
Awesome app
by auntiejaja on 2015/07/02 21:06
Easy to use.
Free money!
by alomax418 on 2015/07/02 19:05
Ok, so it's pretty simple to use (though I'm convinced in order to have money to "pay" us, they sell your information on the receipts to third-parties.) I'm giving it 3 stars until they fix the scanner. I have to manually enter UPC codes 98% of the time when I redeem items. Please fix this because it is a PAIN to do that to each item!
Rules and Regulations are unclear
by FB rAter on 2015/07/02 18:37
I feel that they should tell you up front how your account can be deactivated.
SEEMS like a good app but ....
by Darsna on 2015/07/02 18:31
No instructions and it takes a while to build a significant amount of money to redeem. I'm staying with it for now.
Pretty good
by alkalineaxemurder on 2015/07/02 18:06
I'm enjoying using this so far.
Real moneys???
by CheapAndBoredGal on 2015/07/02 18:01
This app is so cool. The coolest of the cool. So what you have to "waste" time watching ads? Think of it this way: you're essentially getting paid to do it!!! Seriously! That's basically how it works. You don't get the money until you "unlock" it through watching a 15-30 second ad. Not bad at all, I say. Mhm. NOT. A. BAD. DEAL. AT. ALL. 😎
Love it
by Rantsn13 on 2015/07/02 17:02

Get it!!!!
by Tabitha LB on 2015/07/02 16:35

So far so good and it will only get better!
by Mrs. Ogre on 2015/07/02 14:36
Still trying to figure it out lol but I just have to give some of my time to the app. Can't wait to start saving a ton of money, I know for a fact already that I will with Savings Star. I see people everyday from my FB that save $ all the time using this app. I'll write again soon...wish they had more stars to rate with b/c I know when I return to rate again that I'm going to be crazy happy and it will be worth 20 stars plus 😉!
Great rebate App!
by Stephanie Kurtz on 2015/07/02 14:19
I've been using Ibotta for a little while now. It's a great app. Rebates and receipt approvals are very quick. Easy to earn lots of rebates and cash out without any problems.
Really great
by Cmbcolor on 2015/07/02 13:56
The savings are usually just a dollar or $.50 here and there but it is better than none at all!
Best grocery store rebate app
by Natenspja on 2015/07/02 11:17
I am using Snap, receipt hog, Ibotta, and checkout 51. Ibotta is the best of all of them. There isn't any rejections like Snap has done even though it's a clear receipt. There are things listed that you actually use anyways.
Loving the cash back option

Don't be scared to try!
by Bevus and butt head on 2015/07/02 00:05
I cannot express enough, to anyone who is considering signing up for Ibotta, the absolute happiness this app has brought me already! In only 3 days and 1 trip to the supermarket, I have made $18 back on things I WANT to buy... Not just processed and packaged items you normally get coupons for. Milk, eggs, produce and meats are on the list. Not only food items, but clothes, auto parts and electronics! I wish people would take this seriously. It's not just a fake app looking to get your personal info.... You get paid cash! And they use PayPal which couldn't be more simple. Not only do you get money back, but you can do so after using coupons at the register. Major savings! Any negative comments about the time it takes to scan your products, or put in your receipt is just silly. It's well worth the time. TRY IT!
Ibotta Review
by SRoyal84 on 2015/07/01 21:12
The app keeps freezing up and shutting down on me, but it's probably because I'm using an IPhone 4 instead of a 6. I love that you can get rebates on any brand of some items. I just wish it was a little big easier to get the monthly bonuses.
Terrible app
by ALunchTrey on 2015/07/01 21:07
Only downloaded this app because i wanted to unlock emojis that they said would happen once downloaded. Huge spam

by ljo469 on 2015/07/01 20:33
Love seeing which items I am already going to buy will get me a rebate. Also love you can let the rebates build up and cash out when you're ready!
Fun to use
by sesameplace on 2015/07/01 19:18
And it actually works, I got several dollars back in rebates.
Awesome App
by Hkckk5 on 2015/07/01 19:13
I love this app. Getting rebates quickly and the transfer of rebate money into my PayPal account is done quickly also. I earned 28.00 in less than a week. Great choices of products and stores.

Can't use the app
by SusieT1211 on 2015/06/30 18:11
I just got the app recently and was ready to scan and now the app won't even let me log back in. Tried to reset password but I just keep getting an error message. I was very excited to use it but now I'm just frustrated and disappointed. It worked while I was picking stuff to get at the grocery store but when I got home to scan it told me to log back in and now it's not working at all.

Used to be my go to app but
by FoodieInAtl on 2015/06/30 16:38
I was very excited about rebates on groceries and at first the app was great. Scan the receipt and a few hours later it was credited. Most of my items are any brand rebates now because I didn't submit enough branded rebates most of the any brands aren't showing up anymore. This morning before I left, I unlocked the any brand yogurt. I submitted the receipt as normal only to get an email saying that it was for the wrong retailer. When I verified it was the correct retailer the any brand yogurt rebate had disappeared! Very disappointed. Looks like MobiSave is my new go to app!
Love it👌🏽
by Michhiiee96 on 2015/06/30 16:14
Amazing
Up and coming APP.
by TexasFred on 2015/06/30 14:57
All in all this seems to be a really good app. The few problems I have had have been quickly resolved. What I personally would like to see is multiples for the coupons. Example, I almost always buy two cartons of eggs and it would be nice to have the option to redeem the coupon for multiple purchases of items, or maybe a quantity limit on the coupon like .20 off each up to 6. I admit I don't have all the answers but this app is one I would recommend. I am looking forward to becoming more familiar with this app and increase the items I redeem.

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.
Should be 0 stars - what a joke!
by Foxiemama82 on 2015/06/03 19:02
I am a very loyal person when it comes to doing business with a company, I have used this app for over two years. I've run into problems before with them honoring rebates and I've let it go. However, this time we went out to eat at Chili's and qualified for 3 rebates ($4.25 back). We waited around for our server for 20 minutes for the check to finally be told by the manager that we needed to cash out through the kiosk at the table, we did so and had the original receipt emailed to us so that we didn't have to wait for our nonexistent server to come back around with our receipt. We have four small children and I just couldn't spend anymore time waiting in that restaurant. I then submitted all of our information to Ibotta, who informed me that they would not except my online receipt because it was not an in-store receipt even though it had all of the correct, valid information clearly spelled out right in front of them for me to qualify for the rebates. I reached out to customer support several times who told me they obviously couldn't handle the situation nor did they understand what was going on... After I emailed them back 4 separate times, they have refused to respond back to me now. Don't waste your time with this app since apparently they can't handle honoring rebates that they offer and can't be bothered to correct a mistake on their end.
LOVE THIS APP! But..
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.
It's great to get money back on things I'm already buying…
by augustachica on 2015/03/18 15:27
I wasn't so sure about this app when I first installed it under the last version. It seems there were a lot of things you had to go through in order to get it to work. With the newest update, everything is easier… I check on Ibotta before I go grocery shopping and add anything that I most likely will buy to my shopping list. While at the store it tells me my shopping list of things that have rebates and I will go through and scan the barcode of items I'm buying and it will tell me that it matches what's in the database. If I'm buying something that isn't in the database, it gives me an option to upload a picture of it for them to review to add it to the database. The store brand mustard I sent them last week was approved within 24 hrs. This app gives rebates on "any brand" of things like milk, eggs, bread, mustard and ketchup and it gives me money back for buying things I already need. I love this app!
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.
Wow!
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!
I LOVE IBOTTA!
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.
Great App - Great Company
by CiaoBellaCiao on 2015/04/12 22:41
I had an issue arise on a Sunday after 5. You know one of those where it really isn't that bad but added up to other things going on, made me miserable. I received almost instant responses via FB as well as Scotty in their support department who researched what was going on after 5pm on a Sunday! I know I already said that but WOWZA! Real people behind a great working app! Just pull down and all updates are there. Notifications are even provided when an update is available so that you can make the most of the app and savings. Great incentives and bonus offers as well. Very easy to use and of you do have a question, email support responds quickly as well as their individual on FB. Wish I had their name. Just look at the date and time of this post Ibotta management. He or she was awesome and so was Scotty. Hard worker and ver thorough. App has never crashed and very responsive. My favorite savings app!
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.
Comparison
by TreenDeen on 2015/05/12 01:09
I use both Mobisave and Ibotta and I have to say Mobisave is much easier to use. Once I spend time unlocking offers from ibotta, which I don't have to do in Mobisave, there is no list to reference what deals I've already unlocked. Also Mobisave takes about 10 minutes to automatically deposit money into my paypal account, there is no minimum amount to transfer and ibotta takes much longer. I'm not even sure if my hannafords scan went through today; I have received no email and there is no list of pending payments (which Mobisave has). I will say ibotta has more offers such as the "any brand" offers but it's much more complicated to use than Mobisave. Considering uninstalling but I won't forget to delete my account or in a year I'll receive an inactive fee... Yes people read the fine print for ibotta! If you stop using the app and don't actually delete your account you get charged, seems crazy. Hopefully this review will help you improve this app from an avid couponers point of view.
Don't be scared to try!
by Bevus and butt head on 2015/07/02 00:05
I cannot express enough, to anyone who is considering signing up for Ibotta, the absolute happiness this app has brought me already! In only 3 days and 1 trip to the supermarket, I have made $18 back on things I WANT to buy... Not just processed and packaged items you normally get coupons for. Milk, eggs, produce and meats are on the list. Not only food items, but clothes, auto parts and electronics! I wish people would take this seriously. It's not just a fake app looking to get your personal info.... You get paid cash! And they use PayPal which couldn't be more simple. Not only do you get money back, but you can do so after using coupons at the register. Major savings! Any negative comments about the time it takes to scan your products, or put in your receipt is just silly. It's well worth the time. TRY IT!
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.
I was a skeptic! Now I wish I got this earlier!
by amanda_fs on 2015/06/12 14:51
As an app that pays you for doing your normal shopping, I thought that there was no way that this could even be legitimate. It sounds totally hilarious that you could buy your usual groceries and get real cash back. There are a lot of scams out there, always with strings attached.. Not with this app. I downloaded this app a few days ago out of curiosity and within my first day, I already had made 9 bucks! This was from products I already had in my house. This app gets me so excited to shop because you can get so much money back if you peek at the app before you go shopping to see what they're offering cash back on. The app works well, verifications always super fast, and tons of perks and bonuses. There is room for the app to improve, but it's definitely a keeper!
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.... But
by TreNikki on 2015/06/17 00:03
This app is really amazing, I love getting double discounts when using Ibotta and coupons or store promotions together! My only complaint is if you make a mistake with scanning a product or your receipt, you have to scan everything all over again. If you're like me with a house full of family as soon as you put food or juice in the fridge, it doesn't take long before it's gone. Ibotta takes some time to verify your receipt and if it's entered incorrectly, they would like you to rescan all the products and receipt again. In my house I may still have the receipt but the product whether it's bread, milk or OJ is most likely already gone!!! It should be able to save what you've uploaded and you should only correct what you have too.
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!
Great!!! But...
by Marsbars9 on 2015/05/06 05:42
This app is great!! I've already made over $20 just in the first week of using the app by simply buying items I was already going to buy! Other than it being a little time consuming (though really not that bad), my only complaint is that I wish the shopping list would show my items in a more compact, organized fashion and without repeating each item in different categories. In other words, it would be easier to find the items I've selected for a particular shopping trip if they were only listed once in my list and in a more compact way so I don't have to keep scrolling up and down the list as I shop. Also, I would love it if there was a way to check off the items as I put them in my cart. I just like being able to cross/check things off lists!
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 online....to 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.
Works well & do get $$!

I do like this app and it works for most stores that I go to but it doesn't have as many items as I hoped. It does have a lot of the usual items that people buy, ie milk, bread, butter, bananas, tomatoes, etc and most of which you can use any brand. I have used this in conjunction with store sales along with coupons to save even more money. I do wish they would add more items to their lists as I think that would make it better. I do have to say that the downfall to this app is that when you go to scan your items at home to get the discount, the scanner doesn't work and almost every time I have to type the barcode in manually. The money does show up in your account fairly quickly after you take a picture of your receipt to send in to them.
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.
Awesome

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.
Great App!!
by 9onturn on 2015/06/28 22:10
I love this app! You can look ahead of time to see if any rebates match what you're going to buy. Then when you get home and have a chance to sit down, you can submit for your rebates. It's great, and you can transfer any monies right to your PayPal (and it took <24 hours). And it usually takes less than 4 hours (often faster) to get credit for a submission. Only downfall, if you make a mistake during your scanning (often you'll have more than 1 item to submit) , you have to start all over. They read could use a 'save & finish later' option. There's lots of reasons you may not be able to complete a submission in one session (phone rings, kids, work, doorbell, etc). PLEASE ADD THIS KID OF FEATURE!! (PS They always have replied to my emails <24 hours)
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. 👍👍^_^.
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.
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!!
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.
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!
Great in theory but disappointed
by Mariposa0331 on 2014/01/10 03:54
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.
So Far so Good!
by NAJallDay on 2013/01/25 21:57
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.
