App will not load!!
by Shetaz1999 on 2015/07/29 07:15
Please FIX! I'm aging waiting for the page to load. It freezes and will not let me use the app. I have an iPhone so I know it's not my phone holding things up here.
I kinda like it
by Tinybree123 on 2015/07/29 03:57
I mean it's cool but a lot of work of trying to save much money but it's okay and you should download the app I mean I save money so why don't you save money too
Unlocked Ibotta account
by .KITTY on 2015/07/29 02:37
I was having a very hard time getting any response from Ibotta to my email address after submitting several emails to over the course of 1-2 all started when I tried to crest an account with my hubby's email address since his PayPal matches it for an easy transfer...after I "created" it I tried logging in & didn't realize I misspelled the email address...because it was misspelled it said account wasn't valid...I thought that was weird since I was sure it was created successfully so with the misspelled email address typed in I hit create account and started using 1 month later I completed the free groceries for a year sweepstakes and read notifications would be sent out by email so I wanted to make sure all the info was correct & that's when I caught my mistake...I had missed the email address & was using an email address that could belong to someone else...I tried correcting the info but it locked me out...1st I went to check if email I accidentally used was taken and it wasn't so I took it and created an account so I would be able to use my Ibotta without worrying about where my rebate & would go...after I did that I thoroughly explained what happened in emails to Ibotta support from both my email (new one I created) & my husbands and only his were getting answers...I told them I was emailing them also and that person replied that they were assigned to my husbands email and someone would get to my email and they were replying to my hubby's issue with app so I had him reply for me and that also took a few tries and they finally just suggested we make sure we had latest software update on phone...they said everything on their end was unlocked so I got update on my iPhone and tried to log in didn't work so I redid the reset password option (never worked wasn't being received on my end)...I finally received the link to reset my password in my email so I did it then was able to log in! ITS FIXED! 1ST THING I DID WAS CASH OUT MY $35+ into Walmart gift cards ($25 & $10) leaving me with $2.80 in Ibotta...I have to work on getting my own PayPal set up w Ibotta email address I'm's a slow process b/c it seems like they just reply 1X a day but keep at it & your $ will be there when you log back in...I had even deleted the app and reinstalled it to see if that would work before I got the software update that fixed my problem -JF

Yes, it does take a little work, but so does coupons! No clipping needed & it post to your account quickly!
Great app

Nice app. I've gotten $20 worth of free iTunes. With more to come.

Great app.
Love it
by CrazyBaby2359 on 2015/07/28 21:29
I love the app, and the rebates, but there's one major problem. I can't open the app. Since the newest update, it crashes every time I try to open the app. Please fix.
Make sure you scan your receipt ASAP!!
by klvisme13 on 2015/07/28 21:17
Love the app except for one thing - if you don't scan your receipt immediately after shopping, you may lose the rebates! I went shopping last night and bought a bunch of things that had rebates, but when I went to scan my receipt this morning, most of them had expired overnight. It's mostly the generic food ones, so I think those ones should last at least two weeks. We get busy and don't always have time to scan the receipt right after shopping, so it would be nice to have some leeway with the timing. Or, you could send alerts when your rebates are about to expire (or maybe the app already does that?). Besides that, I love the app!
Love it!
by Maya2595 on 2015/07/28 21:15
I have saved over $300 on this app waiting for Christmas to cash it out
by Uytvs1002 on 2015/07/28 21:12
Contacted them about the issue of not being able to redeem my pts to paypal. No response. Cant redeem the points either. Stay away from this scam.
Overall Beneficial
by MissTuesday on 2015/07/28 20:36
Sometimes it is a hassle compared to other receipt-rebate companies because they make you really work for your rebate: you have to complete a task to unlock the rebate, you have to validate the barcode of the product, and finally upload the receipt. Some other companies you simply upload the receipt and receive the rebate. However, Ibotta has the most rebates available on average, and the rebates are of very commonly used products. Ibotta also has more convenient rebate options. From the time i began using receipt-rebate programs, of all of the receipt-rebate companies, i have received the largest amount of money and giftcards from Ibotta. If you are looking into earring receipt rebates, Ibotta is worth your while.
Could use some work
by Gorjusmom on 2015/07/28 20:27
This app has great intentions but falls short. I was disappointed when I found out you can't use it for multiple item rebates. If I buy three gallons of milk, I want to get the rebate for all three gallons. Really needs to be streamlined and add new items that more people use. I like the idea of the "any" brand rebate. That way you don't have to spend 3.00 more to save .20 on the brand name items. Or give a bigger rebate on the more expensive items.
Awesome way to earn/save money
by Gluecks_maus on 2015/07/28 19:39
A friend recommended Ibotta to me, decided to give it a try, amazing!! Love earning money back for items I was going to buy anyway!! Great app!
Trying it out
by Iluuvmii on 2015/07/28 19:36
So far it's cool. Just takes a lil time to get through unlocking
Not enough items.
by Rawrginger12354 on 2015/07/28 19:03
Each store has the same rebates. I find it hard to believe more discounts can't be found at stores like Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot and Targets. I like the app but not sure if it's designers are working hard enough to make it worth my time.
I love this app
by Barnes89 on 2015/07/28 17:58
I always clip coupons and end up forgetting them at home. This app is way better than coupons!!! Don't have to worry about forgetting them or losing them! You can use it at more stores and a variety of brands and can use it on store brands. Only thing is now it's loading super slow or doesn't load at all. Please fix the bugs
Love it
by Dkleintank on 2015/07/28 17:41
Easy and fun to use. Would like to see more commonly needed staple items instead of snack type tho

Absolutely love it !!
My new favorite money saving app
by GaltierGang on 2015/07/28 13:32
Love this app - I got back over ten dollars the first week. I love that several of the coupons are applied to any brand - milk, vegetables, dish soap. Washing detergent etc.
Love this APP!!!
by PammyTee on 2015/07/28 11:14
This is a great APP. I get money in my account for items that already pay very little for. I was able to get enough in my account to cover 90% of the cost of an iPad. It made a great Christmas gift for my son.
Great app
by Godschild5822 on 2015/07/28 08:58
This seems quite useful. It has some great deals on here depending on what your looking for. I'm glad I downloaded it.
It's pretty cool
by BossyGirl510 on 2015/07/28 08:56
It's pretty cool
Great app so far
by MsOfficer1999 on 2015/07/28 06:58
I just installed it on the 19th and have gotten almost $20 in rebates already. It takes a little time to find the products but in the end it's all worth the hassle.
Give it a Chance
by Smkiner on 2015/07/28 05:20
It's a bit difficult to use but with some work it isn't too bad and gets easier to use and understand! Give it a chance before you just give up!
Awesome, legitimate app
by Jdghvjiurepoop2222 on 2015/07/28 04:25
Get legitimate money back for your purchases. Many things you buy every week & so many stores to choose from. Need to do a little work to find the products & seems like small amounts. They add up quickly.
Great! Minus double work
by msanders09 on 2015/07/28 03:06
Having to scan the product code & receipt is a pain!
Great way to earn money back!
by Drweaze on 2015/07/28 03:04
So far I love this app! I get money back for things that I am already going to purchase.
Easy money
by facciaubriaco on 2015/07/28 02:16
Great way to save
MobiSave is so much easier!
by Jenni Lee77 on 2015/07/28 01:36
I love that I get to save money when I go to a store. And it actually has items that you really use. But it's too much work I shouldn't have to verify the products cuz it can be confusing about which store blah blah blah.
Great app! Love saving money
by Shan2buckke on 2015/07/28 01:13
Love it!!! 5 stars

I am enjoying the benefits of ibotta
by 412920 on 2015/07/27 22:28
Since the changes for giant eagle I am not able to upload my receipt from yesterday Dont like this new scanning process , click scan .. Click scan , it was much better with just scanning all at once
My favorite app!
by FridgeSkram on 2015/07/27 22:04
I open this app more than game apps. I'm an Ibotta nerd and talk it up to strangers at the grocery store. I've earned several hundred dollars in rebates that I send to PayPal to buy my family gifts (usually through Ibotta to get MORE rebates).
Easy-to-use-app & no coupon clutter
by Hates to Coupon on 2015/07/27 21:51
Finally, an app that gives me money back on brands I buy, at the stores where I shop, without me having to keep up with coupon clutter, expiration dates, etc. This app is so simple to use, and it authenticates and posts rebates very quickly. For less time than it would take me to clip, file, and find a paper coupon, Ibotta takes care of giving me money-back savings with ease. Highly recommended.
Love this app
by Inthepink3244 on 2015/07/27 21:35
I am still learning to coupon. This app makes it easier. By the way, I am still learning this app too LOL
by pissedddoffff on 2015/07/27 21:07
Update keeps crashing. Cannot even open the app.
Great way to earn!
by azred78 on 2015/07/27 18:09
Love using this app, easy to get my money whether it be to PayPal or a gift card. A couple crashes now and then but nothing excessive.
Great rebates
by Melas040109 on 2015/07/27 17:47
Lots to choose from & teamwork is great!
by Love savings gal on 2015/07/27 17:44
So far I love it I haven gotten to use it a lot but I can see where over time it will b worth it! Thanks ibotta!
Pocket change for free
by Lbonkerz on 2015/07/27 17:28
Nice app and great for everyday shopping. You get money back for purchases you already make.
Great app for everyone!
by Addi_B on 2015/07/27 17:27
Before downloading the app, I knew about Ibotta but hadn't done any research on it. After looking for an app for coupons, an advertisement came up and I decided to give it a look. A great decision! It allows me to make money back for a lot of things I normally buy. This isn't limited to groceries either! You can use it on electronics, clothing, back to school things, and so much more! I've already made a bit of money and close to cashing in. A definite must for anybody looking to save some money.
It's free money with a little effort
by Dies Natalis on 2015/07/27 16:38
I don't mind the extra work.
Rebates & Headaches
by 34retro on 2015/07/27 16:18
It's nice to receive rebates on products I buy anyway. It can be time consuming to hunt through the rebates, though. And sometimes a rebate is available at only one specific store even though the product is available at another accepted retailer. Also, many national retailers at which I shop regularly are not included.
by dsinned on 2015/07/27 15:28
Very easy to use. I use all my savings to buy Sephora gift cards.
Every little bit adds up
by Happy newcomer on 2015/07/27 14:31
It is easy to use and handy as my phone is always with me. I am looking for little ways to save money. Daughter is getting married in 2016. I will tell others.
by Sprinkles_28 on 2015/07/27 13:56
Nice to double up on savings. Limited offers. You can choose what you don't like but not a lot of new offers appear after that. I like that you can use one offer for an item and then it reappears again, esp for something like juice which we tend to buy a lot of.
Please fix bugs
by Nean00 on 2015/07/27 13:40
Every time I want to open the app it won't open. I must delete the app from my phone and download the app again. Then and only then will it work! If I go out and try to go back in BOOM, I must again delete the app and redownload. PLEASE fix this!!!!
Great program!
by msinaples on 2015/07/27 12:38
Easy and fun to use. Always find something to get rebate on. Just be quick. Don't wait weeks to use cause the coupon rebate will expire in only 2 weeks
by Yo BEBA I on 2015/07/27 08:07
I love this app ❗️
I love it

I just started couponing and using Ibotta app. Both have been a great experience!! Thanks to Ibotta !!
Ibotta app?
by Shanly10 on 2015/07/27 03:32
Its complicated especially the new version. I wish it just reads the barcode and give a rebates to what u have purchased.
Great way to save money!
by LMN37 on 2015/07/27 03:10
Love getting money back so I don't mind doing a little work. It's a little confusing to use at first.
Latest update crashes
by Jen711_2004 on 2015/07/27 03:10
Ever since the last update every time I try to use the app I get to the loading screen and it crashes. Once the problem is fixed I will change to a 5 star review because I love the app when it works.
Good app!
by karabaybe on 2015/07/27 02:54
Great app as far as getting money back for things you're already buying. Some times the app is annoying though and doesn't work the first time around.
Good app
by Taeheath on 2015/07/27 02:25
This app is a bit time consuming but I have gotten money I would not have otherwise! So far it's worth the effort!
Take FOREVER to load

This App is ver use friendly and the coupons are pretty simple to get and There is a ton. 💯
by Vaughnsa on 2015/07/27 00:39
I was using another rebate app and it took me over a year to earn 25$. I started using IBOTTA in Jan 2015, and already have earned 225$. I love that I can transfer the money earned right into my paypal account or choose to buy gift cards. I cashed in $200 into Amazon cards which I received in my email immediately! Great app, and not to difficult to use!
Best app ever

It's kool
Great App!
by Birdbear on 2015/07/27 00:16
I have been using this for a couple of months and made almost 200 dollars just buying groceries!
It's works
by Singing2Myself on 2015/07/26 23:42
I've made about $40 in 5 months which isn't bad at all. Just don't use the redemption link, they will take forever to credit or screw you over and say you did it wrong so you don't get any credit. Also only use it for stuff you actually buy, don't buy stuff just to get a rebate, I know it sounds silly but you will find yourself wanting to do it and that makes no sense.
by Loloqt09 on 2015/07/26 22:42
Great customer service, a great asset to couponing!
Free money!
by Christyuofm on 2015/07/26 22:30

I just downloaded the app and I love it so far!
by NoraLa23 on 2015/07/26 20:57
I've used for few days. Maybe 5 days and earned 3.60 for the stores I shop at. I shop for what I need and hope something is in there I need. So, it's not too bad but hope I can cash in enough $ to earn a gift card!
Who knew you could save this much!!
by Chelstergurl on 2015/07/26 20:28
I hate couponing. Half the time you find stuff you don't really want, but on Ibotta you get savings everyone on stuff you buy every week! Eggs, milk, veggies! It's amazing how much 0.20 can add up over a year, with things you already buy anyways. Another miracle, money off alcohol!!! It is so fulfilling to pick up a 6 pack and get it more than half off... This app also let's me try new food or snacks that have come out and if they are cheaper I am more likely to try something new!! Great app!
5 stars for Ibotta!
by Nat0229 on 2015/07/26 20:04
I'm learning more and more everyday! I really find this fun and entertaining to get rebates on my groceries. If you like saving money and it makes you feel good to do so, this app is for you!
Great App
by AngeeEve on 2015/07/26 19:33
I love this app. I was using a different one like this and it was like pulling teeth getting the rebates. The scanning barcodes is a slight pain but the rebates get applied quickly.
No longer a fan !

This app has been very frustrating since the last update. I have had to reinstall Many times & this is the ONLY app Not working on my phone so I know it is NOT my phone. Please Fix this App. It is not loading the rebates so therefore you cannot use it for what it meant to do.
Love saving money?

If you love saving money this is a great tool. Easy way to earn rebates on things you already buy.
Earning money!
by Gwynn 44 on 2015/07/26 17:47
Great way to earn money back on the things u often buy. Just scan the UPC code on the item and scan your receipt. They are fast at giving u the cash back
by KayB0629IHDW on 2015/07/26 14:54

New update is horrible
by Trish022685 on 2015/07/26 14:00
I had at least $40 but thanks to the new update it won't let me sign in!!! Can the developers fix this?! All my hard work and money spent for nothing.
Great way to get money back on things you were buying anyway

by Gwsw1220 on 2015/07/26 12:56
Can't beat getting money back for items I would buy anyway! Lots of "any brand" deals so you don't always have to buy the name brand most expensive item to get a rebate!! Awesome app!
by Gahahahjajaja on 2015/07/26 12:18
this app is the best
Save on regular purchases!!!! Awesome
by Divia9 on 2015/07/26 10:58

by Chiqu1lla on 2015/07/26 08:43
I love this app cause it pays me for items that I have on my list already. I only pick items that I buy and once in a while one or two that I don't, so I can try them along the way. I know it's not much but little by little it starts accumulating. Haven't had any problems with the app.
I love it

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.
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.

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!
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!
Great App!!
by Christianchick68 on 2015/07/08 20:12
When my best friend suggested this app I was hesitant to try it because I figured that there was a catch to it, but I was wrong. This is a great app, and in less than a week I have received almost twenty dollars back from my regular grocery shopping. I scan my items in the store to verify that it's the right one, and then scan the items and receipt as I'm putting the items away. I have had no problems with redeeming items. If you think you will purchase the item you can unlock it before you shop, which adds the item to your shopping list and saves time later. The one change I would like to see is receiving the rebate on more than one item on the same receipt. For example, I usually purchase multiple containers of yogurt but I can only receive the rebate on one of them for that receipt. Other than that, I am enjoying this app immensely and have recommended it to many friends.
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
It's an okay app
by Kelly_Mayumi on 2015/07/10 18:17
I like ibotta. Am I going to get rich using ibotta, of course not. I like the stores available for me to redeem purchases from. There's Kroger, Giant Eagle, CVS, Target, and Sam's Club for example. I don't like that Target has a better grocery selection then Giant Eagle. I do wish I could make purchases at my local grocery store (that is not a chain store) because I'm more likely to find some of the listed items there vs CVS or Giant Eagle. I like the selection of grocery products I can purchase to earn rebates. Right now fresh produce is available, which I think is great, but I get many of these products from my local farmers market since it warm now. BI like there are restaurants to make purchases from too. I recently had an issue submitting a reciept and contacted customer service. While it was not real timely, it was clear, concise and helpful. UPDATE- I've had other customer service issues & the time to resolve them has improved significantly.
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.
Doesn't work.
by Kendrick1413 on 2015/07/12 05:24
Is it just me? Or is this app a waste of time and valuable space on your iPhone? Lol. I downloaded this app because the name is so catchy and I came across the ad while playing games on my iPhone. I thought it was pretty cool to get rebates on products that you buy from stores near you. I went to the store and purchased a few groceries. I searched the store on ibotta and saw a lot of rewards for the products I bought. I clicked a picture of a loaf of bread, then I scanned the loaf of bread I had purchased. It says "Match!" so I thought it was successful. But then I go to scan it again since I had gotten 2 of the same thing and it says "Please purchase the item, then come back here." Like, what?? Obviously I purchased it if it's in my refrigerator .. So I thought maybe I can't scan the same item so I tried another item.. Same thing.. So I went to check my account to see if I had received any rebates or "lifetime savings", still nothing. Really disappointed 😡😓
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.
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!
Love it!

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.

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.
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.

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!

Ibotta is easy to learn and use. I love the quick and simple link to Pay pal. Until last week I used it exclusively with my iPod 5th gen. The iOS updates kept me connected well with Ibotta, but right after Christmas 2014, we got Hughesnet Gen 4. We couldn't use another provider due to our location...and honestly Hughesnet worked well for 5 years prior to Gen 4. Once we upgraded, I was unable to consistently load the app and would have to go into town to access my husbands Internet, where Ibotta would load easily. Well the happy ending came with the iOS 8.4 update on July 1. Now the app loads easily and consistently from home. This problem had both a provider and operating system "bug". Hope this helps some frustrated folks out there!
Love love love this!

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.

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.
