Great App!!!
by Ashley2345678 on 2016/02/08 12:37
I use it to get rebates on things I normally buy for my family. Great App would definitely recommend to friends and family.
Great way to save
by ChellieP1971 on 2016/02/08 12:32
I love saving money on the things I'm buying anyway. This app is easy to use and savings start adding up fast.
Major Problems with App
by A Dad age 40 on 2016/02/08 12:23
I have had trouble getting receipts to load over several weeks and they recommended I delete and download app again. I did that and now I get error "forbidden" when trying to login and transfer my accumulated earnings. App has real technical problems.
Love it!
by Brandonsbride13 on 2016/02/08 07:53
Great app! Love how they have rebates where you can buy any brand that you want and still get money off. I get the cheaper brand of bread at Walmart that's $.88 cents and this app gave me $.50 cents for any brand of bread. $.38 cents for a loaf of bread? I think so!
Wonderful
by devryn1syl on 2016/02/08 07:31
Check out the Krazy coupon lady app and website she shows you how to maximize your purchase by showing you how to use a store coupon and this rebate on top of sale prices to get things really cheap and how to eork it with the cash back and registers that print out also
Rebates
by Tlchavs on 2016/02/08 03:55
I like Ibotta but the best rebates now are for alcohol and I don't buy alcohol.
Okay So Far
by Plmndgy on 2016/02/08 02:54
The idea is great, but I can't use it at the store I spend 90% of my money at. Also, we don't drink hardly ever. It seems as if all my chances to cash in rebates is for alcohol.
Love it
by Nicholli003 on 2016/02/08 01:13
The ibotta app is fantastic and so easy to use! My friends have enjoyed it as well!
Love it!
by CrissyG63 on 2016/02/08 00:23
I just discovered Ibotta. It's fantastic. Couldn't be easier!
Missing Any Brand Option
by Ski-Cat79 on 2016/02/07 23:48
Not a fan of this app when it doesn't give the option to buy from any brand. Will be deleting after I cash, out if things don't change.
Great at first, then is a major let down
by J Hammie on 2016/02/07 23:23
I LOVED this app at first. I told all my friends about it and was sold on how beneficial it was. After about two months the offers became so limited to certain brands. I am not as much of a fan now. MIGHT use it once a month now... 👎🏻
Pretty cool app
by Jleighwhit on 2016/02/07 21:48
Love this app, just wish it had a better variety of products to purchase.
😀
by Korinnerizzo on 2016/02/07 21:46
This app is great.
Organized?
by TimRock17 on 2016/02/07 21:35
Great little program to earn a little money back, that being said, the way it's organized leaves a lot to be desired.
The more you use the less you get
by Ijustwanttokeepplaying... on 2016/02/07 21:23
I like this app but I've had the same problem as others on here... The more you use the app, the less you get. I really like the "any brand" rebates but they've became very far & few between recently. I looked at my boyfriend's app (he just added) and he has much better rebates than me. You shouldn't be punished for being a loyal customer!
Easy money!!
by TheRealCatness on 2016/02/07 20:57
This app is really easy to use. I do wish you could filter on the coupons more so than just 'grocery'. Or mark/delete ones you know you don't want.
Great app
by Jmn-26 on 2016/02/07 19:40
I love this app!! It has a lot of different things every time I use it. I'm very happy I decided to use this for my family!
Great
by Ladylibra1006 on 2016/02/07 18:59
Great awesome can't wait to get my first rewards.
This update is worse
by trisarahtops38 on 2016/02/07 18:49
I hadn't had any problems with the camera in the previous version, but after the most recent update, the camera never focuses. So frustrating!
I'm starting to understand what others mean
by sTAR* THE SongBird on 2016/02/07 18:40
The discounts aren't rolling in as they should be. I may be deleting this app for sure.
So far it's great
by Jamiecole514 on 2016/02/07 17:47
I have been using Ibotta for about a month and have already racked up $44.00 with rebates and referrals. So far I'm impressed!
Small selection
by Annaowens on 2016/02/07 17:08
I got so far once gift card for Amazon. But selection of products so small and not change a lot, but otherwise I like it
Worth the effort
by AvengerD on 2016/02/07 17:05
I have just started using this app and for just taking some extra time I get found money.
Was better a few months ago!
by Rock'n Frazers on 2016/02/07 16:06
I used this app a lot initially as it always seemed to have products I needed and used. Now the products seem more random and mostly processed foods.
Pretty good - more variety and linking to loyalty cards would be better
by jessiqua217 on 2016/02/07 15:33
At first I LOVED this app. There were great rebates; I especially loved the any brand ones. More recently I've noticed fewer and fewer rebates that I find useful. Also, only one local store allows for their loyalty card to be linked to the app. The scanning of products and then capturing the receipt, while not overly time consuming, can become tedious.
Fun!
by jamiecrytzer on 2016/02/07 13:38
Such a simple and easy way to get cash back for things you already are going to purchase! Love the gift card option.
I love Ibotta
by Katelynnelc on 2016/02/07 13:00
Absolutely great app. Great for grocery shopping.
Use to be awesome..
by Jnich9700 on 2016/02/07 12:53
I use to absolutely love this app. I too agree that the more you use it, the less rebates you end up with. Deleting..
Like a Little
by Jeanamoe on 2016/02/07 12:50
I agree with the "Catch" reviewer. This app started out great but the more you use it the less you get. The items that I buy mostly have disappeared. When I grocery shop this app would be open; but now I don't use it as much. Contemplating deleting it off my electronic devices😢
Great App
by Kelsie L. on 2016/02/07 12:11
I love this app, it works great and it's very easy to use :)

Quick and easy to earn cash back
Love it!!
by JJ_Olson on 2016/02/07 02:55
Not having issues and I've been using it for quite awhile now. I love the fact that you can get your rebate to a gift card to your favorite store.
Still some glitches!
by Amzzz76 on 2016/02/07 02:32
I have been using this app for the past month.I love it and it has an easy user interface except for the fact that it WILL NOT scan my barcodes or QR code!Only receipts from Walmart will allow me to take a picture of the receipt.So I have missed out on approx. $20 from other retailers where the barcode has to be scanned.I would give 5 stars if it wasn't for this one MAJOR flaw!
Used to be great. There are many problems now.
by Marsray on 2016/02/07 02:03
I have used this app for nearly a year. I've been very pleased in the past with the cash amount, quality, variety, and speed of processing rebates. I haven't been pleased recently. I referred friends in the past but will not any more. Customer service was great until recently. They used to respond quickly, accurately, and with clear knowledge of any issues. Their responses were often within hours of me contacting them. Not now. This past week I've been dealing with a certain representative and it has been infuriating. Not only has she failed to understand my issue, she continues to ask me for more and more "proof". This week I've sent her seven photos including screenshots of the app to substantiate my claim. Her response was to tell me the rebate wasn't working because it wasn't available at the retailer where I shopped. Seriously? Has she ever used this app? I sent her screenshots of the rebate clearly showing the rebate on the retailer page and a list indicating the retailer was a participating party. She seems to be doing everything to blame this on something I did rather than address the issue. I don't appreciate her lack of professionalism, lack of knowledge of the issue, and slow response time.
In love with this app!
by Wendydawn21 on 2016/02/07 01:49
I'm absolutely in love with this app. Ibotta is probably the easiest coupon-ing app I've seen. Another great thing about this app, they allow you to by any brand of milk, bread, eggs, etc. Not just certain name brands. Don't get me wrong, those are there too, but only if you chose to buy those. If you are currently a coupon-er (which I'm not) you'll really love it...more savings on top of the paper coupons.
Great app
by Aveena06 on 2016/02/07 01:08
I was recently introduced to this app and have already cashed in a $25 gift card... I have already invited 4 other and working together to get more $$$...
Like it not in love
by Amotel on 2016/02/07 00:40
Easy to use like the any brand options but there aren't many. Don't like the minimum to cash out but still a cool idea.
OK .. BUT
by KidAtHeart74 on 2016/02/07 00:14
It is great right out of the box, but then not so much. There are a SMALL handful of items that repeat each week, such as tomatoes or bananas. However the majority of items are random, as far as the brand, the actual item. I have even found numerous items that are NOT available in my area. The app is a great concept but the functionality falls flat.
$$$$$$
by Moose_2000 on 2016/02/06 23:19
Love earning money back on items I buy.
Fun Easy Usable!

This app is so awesome.
Really? Polls?
by CookorDie on 2016/02/06 22:06
This is a fun way to get free money...until you realize you have to answer a question every time you want to unlock a deal. It gets old really quickly when you are trying to shop, especially if you do not always shop with a list or have time to scroll through deals before shopping. It would also be great if items were sub-categorized so you don't have to scroll through a whole bunch of items you do not need or want. For example, there are tons of alcoholic beverages listed, but my grocery doesn't even sell alcohol. We'll see how long this lasts for me.
Easy to use

Loving Ibotta.

I and my son have so much fun shopping now with Ibotta.
New to Ibotta
by Blugrniz on 2016/02/06 20:39
I'm new to using it so really don't have much to say. I'm not a fan of having to "become a team" with anyone. I don't do much shopping except once a month. Hopefully it works out in the end for me
Pretty awesome rebates!
by sarahrmcd on 2016/02/06 20:35
If I can just remember to open the rebates before shopping I could really get some $ back.
Money saver!
by Prince_Legolas on 2016/02/06 20:22
Best app to save money on day to day grocery shopping
Finally a true money earning app

Interesting
by QueenShei on 2016/02/06 19:08
My generation isn't in to couponing like others. This is a smart phone friendly way to save/ get rewards! I've only had an issue with the camera reading a Receipt once. Every other time it's worked great :) there's nothing to loose

So far, so good. It's easy to use. You see your account updated quickly. Just waiting to accumulate enough to cash out for the first time.
My favorite app!
by Babykada21606 on 2016/02/06 16:27
Easy and rewarding!
Great idea, could use tweaks
by JoMama26 on 2016/02/06 16:19
I use this app regularly and even plan my grocery list around deals if they're good enough and match up with store deals, etc. So far I've cashed out twice with two $25 gift cards, so it works! I just wish that the deals varied more (they seem to be the same brand items over and over), had more selection, and included a lot more of the "generic" items, especially outside of Walmart (where I don't tend to shop). Here's hoping the developers listen and can expand their offerings!
Ibotta
by Dawnlmb on 2016/02/06 16:13
I love this app. It's a little work but worth the rewards.
Just okay
by SoccerMom3604 on 2016/02/06 15:41
I was a little skeptical about any app that would give cash back on purchases. This app is just mediocre as it has very little items I actually buy available for rebates. Not really sure it's worth the time and effort.
Just started using it...
by Kitty1728 on 2016/02/06 14:57
I just started clipping coupons and started using the app. So far so good.
Love it!!!

Getting money back on what I'm already going to buy!
by LouannChatt on 2016/02/06 02:45
Getting money back on what I'm already going to buy, why not?!? I have been using this app for a few weeks and I love it. I get money back on items I regular purchase, and I'm able to discover different products that I may not have tired without the rebate. It's easy to use, so why not?
Great
by Killbot 301 on 2016/02/06 00:42
I enjoy earning the rebates and like the idea of team and individual rewards.
Loving it!

Disappointed 😞
by Vzshhre on 2016/02/05 19:00
At first i was talking about nothing but ibotta. Looks like everyone's gonna hate me for that. I can see no proper rebates at all. I thought ibotta was better compared to other similar apps. But no! Beware of this. U get loads of rebates in the beginning. But as you use the app rebates are so low that u hardly get a 1$ out of your grocery list.
Making money!
by Missstacylee on 2016/02/05 18:03
Great app! I've already made about $60 in one month!!
Cool App, Long process
by LawDuck on 2016/02/05 17:34
I really like this app, but I have 2 knocks on it. 1: It takes forever to build up to $20, which is what you have to acquire in order to cash out. 2: They do not accept receipts that are in form of e-mail. It would be awesome if they allowed you to attach PDFs of e-mailed receipts.
You will earn faster only through referrals
by Guru ram on 2016/02/05 14:54
If you have big group of friends you can refer them and earn faster otherwise the amount which from the rebate might be slow and very less. Your each visit to Walmart or the grocery store may earn 1.5 to 2 dollars max.
Great app!!
by cinderella_36272 on 2016/02/05 14:25
Luv this app!! Great way to earn cash back doing what I normally do, shop!!! ❤️❤️❤️

So Far So Good
by SavingsQueen on 2016/02/05 11:34
I waited about a month before writing a review, so far it's been great! I earned over $30 in the month of January and had no problem cashing out. It seems to be a great app to save a little extra money on items I was already planning on purchasing.
Needs more grocery choices
by Jeb1017 on 2016/02/05 11:13
There needs to be more grocery choices and less alcohol choices. Takes to long to get money worth cashing out with what's offered.
Love earning cash back
by Lovinlifersg on 2016/02/05 09:52
It's not the same as a coupon where you get a discount. But it is almost as good I love the free cash

by SilversJJ on 2016/02/05 07:48

Love this! How cool! Works great!
Taking clear picture of receipt is tough
by Alicia Gray on 2016/02/05 05:17
Why can't I hold up my phone to take a picture of the receipt? It only allows you to take pictures with your phone flat and pointing down, but it's so hard to take a clear picture. Extremely frustrating when you're trying to prove your purchases but you keep getting notifications that it can't be cleared because the picture of the receipt is too blurry.

Its neat, but getting less so.
by AriannaBadwolf on 2016/02/05 01:54
I like the app, but the increase in cashing out blindsided me, a bit of warning would have been nice. I understand why
Worth the little effort
by Doctor Nik on 2016/02/05 01:33
Earn back cash on stuff you already purchase. Not too shabby.
Awesome!!!!!

I love this app!
Good app
by Amari.c on 2016/02/05 00:51
I've had this app a couple of weeks, and I like it so far. It has more offers than any other app I've seen (and not just brand-name stuff). My biggest issue with it so far is that you seem to have to buy gallons of milk to get a rebate. I have yet to find a brand that carries gallons of lactose-free milk, so even though I buy 1-2 gallons of milk total per week I cannot get the rebate because I buy multiple half-gallons at a time. :(
Great way to save money!
by Desire86 on 2015/10/13 12:16
I like this app. I use it a lot because I like to save money on my groceries. I've racked up $45 in only 3 months. The only downside to using Ibotta is that you might buy something and it's actually the wrong item and you will not get cash back. Let's say you needed to buy Greek yogurt with the basic flavors and you accidentally bought the tropic flavors because it says variety on the coupon. Ibotta will not give you cash back for that item. Second way to not get cash back is if you purchased some things and wait over a week to redeem your items, you will not get cash back. Something that I've done that the app doesn't give you money on is, buying items from the wrong store. I bought diapers from one store which I was suppose to buy from a different store and lost $1 cash back because I already opened the package and could not return them. I just wished the coupons were for more then one store instead for specific stores. Another one I would like to point out is that they give you items to buy from certain stores and the stores don't even carry half the items the store specific coupons are for. I went to a store that had 30 coupons and I only found 5 items and that was it. Also the coupons they have are sometimes never for items you buy. I guess it's to promote new items but I wish they had coupons for things people buy regularly.
I love this app!
by Jw13440 on 2014/05/08 11:48
It's a great app, who wouldn't want to get money back on their purchases!? Id like to see the deals change more often, especially for things that I'm more inclined to buy. My big suggestion is that for when we might have multiple deals on one receipt purchase, there should be an option to add another deal to the list before entering the receipt for verification. I had 7 deals on one receipt last time and had to enter each item individually so I had to take a picture of the same receipt 7 times. Id just like to click click and go. So basically: add a deal, scan to verify the item, add all other deals applicable and verify (if multiple deals on one receipt), take one pic of the receipt, all deals on that receipt can be checked and verified at once. I think that would be much more efficient for whoever verifies this stuff as well as for those entering it in for redemption, rather than getting one thing approved from the receipt and then have to wait 4 hours or more for all the other deals on that receipt to be approved. If it's entered all together at one time it takes way less time to verify, and also keeps the person verifying from having to look at separate entries from the same receipt over and over again.
Exceptional!

I love this application! I have not had any issues with it whatsoever. I read some of the reviews which complains about the rebates bring so little and having problems taking pictures, and getting her to start over, etc...Well here is are my two cents. Why complain about .20 cents? The point is to compile the rebates to get money. I have made $23 so far in a month. This is a combination of rebates and bonuses for getting your friends to use the app, and other incentives they have if you reach certain goals. Also, I have NEVER had a problem taking a picture of the receipt, how hard can that be??? You scan the product and take a picture of the receipt, done. I do it as soon as I get home from the grocery store and I don't have to think about it any more. And complain about watching a 30 or 60 second video, seriously? First, you don't have to watch a video for each item, second, the surveys you do have to complete are only of 1 question, and sometimes you don't have to do any of them at all. That said, I highly recommend to read before you do or comment on something. In that way you will totally understand how it works and use it to your best benefit. I am very satisfied with the app, and my friends are too.
Saves me money with minimal effort on my part

Paper coupons are time consuming and I can't keep them organized and they usually aren't for healthy/fresh items. I like digital coupons that you load to your store's loyalty card. This app is kind of like the digital coupons except when you get home or as you place the item in your cart, you scan the barcode with your phone. Then you take a photo of the receipt. If you think that sounds hard to do, the app opens your camera for you and literally you are just touching your finger to the screen a couple times. It's easy! I'm saving money on the stuff I buy. Onions, bananas, milk, any brand of bread, any brand of cereal, lettuce, meat. I've been to the store three times and with a $5 bonus, I have $23 and change earned. It is easy to use. I like that it shows a photo of the item so I can scan through the available rebates quickly. I only gave 4 stars because it gives you the option to send your list of rebates to an email, your notes feature on iPhone and other apps. It doesn't always work. The latest update seems like it may have fixed the problem. Plus I had an item that certainly seemed to be the correct one but it said barcode did not qualify. That would be ok if from that screen I could link to details of rebate.
Used to love Ibotta app
by Like Ibotta on 2015/09/13 21:24
I used to love the app until September 2 when I couldn't unlock items after watching 20 cent any brand items which are time consuming. Then I couldn't log into my account and was told it was a system glitch. Then I could sign in on website but not the app. Told there was a problem w my IP address and it was a location outside my Area. Got that changed but still not able to log in. Then told I could not use a VPN which I was unhappy about cause I earn with their app and it is not a rebate or coupon app. Finally after it didn't help to temporarily disable I deleted and sure enough it worked. Going to add back that VPN app and see what happens cause I used it w Ibotta for nearly a year with no problem. This all happened after Ibotta and other app updates and after an iOS update. Sure hope it all works. I did get good support from Ibotta and they credited my account for items I bought when I couldn't use the app and usually credit my account within hours of uploading receipts. But would prefer something other than videos to unlock rebate items. I couldn't get a person to do it because of the time it takes and don't have much luck w getting anyone to do it. I really think that most of the time it causes me to buy things I don't need. But will keep trying for a little longer.
My favorite app!
by 16Neon**Beryl10 on 2016/01/15 16:44
I got the app first because it was free, it was working great and then I read some reviews after I'd already been using it. Some people said there were problems. I was hopeful that there wasn't and I haven't run into any yet. First off, you don't have to do it while your shopping, you can do it when you get home and you're putting your groceries away, or when you're making your list before you go; you can select the items you are purchasing and verify them there in the store or when you get home. It doesn't take long to get the minimum amount to get cash ($20) at all! Regular grocery items are on there that we buy every week! I have already got cash through PayPal, it was quick, easy and secure. It asks for your fingerprint (if you've added it) so that it can verify that it's YOU cashing out. You also have the option to put money on a few select gift cards, (good for gifts I guess) which I have not tried. But I'm already getting more money on my account. My favorite part might be that it's not just groceries!!! I got money for going to see the new Star Wars movie, you can get money for buying pet supplies and things such as that. Great app and works 100% amazing for me!
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.
Good app, but some issues
by ZueseO on 2016/01/01 06:14
So far I like the app. However there are some problems, for starters I can only redeem one of a certain item. Regardless of the fact that I bought multiple, second; it makes me start all over again after every single item redemption. Third, for example the other day I had multiple receipts for 3 gallons of milk that I had purchased. 1 gallon per receipt, however I could only redeem 1 of the milks. After that the item disappears and doesn't allow me to redeem the other 2 gallons, even though they are on separate receipts. I've had issues with redeeming more than one of a single item on the same receipt, but on separate receipts it should not be an issue. It has been a few days since the first redemption and the item still hasn't reappeared for me to redeem the second and third gallon of milk, plus the added hassle of having to save receipts and keep boxes of items if this happens. So that days later, if the item as been put away I might not have kept it in the box for storage or just it being used. But if I want to ATTEMPT redeeming it, I have to keep the box and dig it out of where I have put the items away. I would be immensely great full if these issues were addressed, but otherwise it's a decent app.!
Okay app
by Lizziemarie1985 on 2015/11/24 18:29
I actually downloaded this 2 years ago, tried it a couple of times but it wasted my time more than saved me money. Recently I received an email from Ibotta telling me that if I didn't do an activity that I would be charged $5 for having the account/app. Well, that seemed excessive and ridiculous so I tried to find a way to delete my account, which there is no easy or helpful answer on their website. I sent an email to their customer service indicating my desire to delete my account, to which I never got a reply. In the meantime I started to peruse the app again so I wouldn't be charged and started to turn in some rebates. The app has expanded quite a bit since its induction years ago, which is quite nice. I have been able to turn in a number of rebates and earned some bonuses. However, this app could definitely become more user friendly. I would suggest a way to sort the rebates, such as pulling up all the new ones to the top so I don't have to waste time scrolling. Also, the videos are way too long for the few cents return, basically battery drainers. Do not make the app close and start over when locking the phone or switching between apps. I would give it more stars if it was more user friendly and convenient.
Overall a great app
by BandMom67 on 2015/11/19 19:42
Overall, I really like ibotta and its app. However, with a recent update, the app has become more cumbersome to navigate, plus it closes the app when I shut my phone off, which it didn't do previously. I usually have the app open on my phone while I shop, but will shut off my phone when I'm not checking the list or scanning an item, so that I don't accidentally touch the screen and do something that I don't want to. Haha! Unfortunately, now the app usually closes when I shut off my phone and when I turn my phone on again I have to go hunt for my shopping list, pick the store, and get back to where I was, which is really annoying! Also, I used to be able to access the shopping list from the individual stores' screens, which was handy. I could skim through the list of possible rebates, make sure I had the ones I wanted unlocked, and then with one tap open the shopping list. Now, after I've checked the available rebates in the store I'm at, I have to tap back a couple of screens, tap to select "shopping list", then tap which store I'm shopping in. If it werent for these couple of annoyances, I'd rate it a 5-star!
Love the app!
by New & very impressed user on 2016/01/08 04:25
I heard about this app & downloaded it on Dec 28, so not even 2 weeks ago. My balance right now is $33. I am tickled to death for getting money back on items I already purchase weekly. I don't feel like it's time consuming at all. I normally wait until I'm in Walmart parking lot, so I'm alone & away from my kids, I open the app & scroll through it & unlock the items that are already on my list. I go shop with my normal grocery list as I always did. When I get back in my car, I type in each item off my receipt in the search bar just to see if I had overlooked it before going inside. Then I verify my purchases & am done. It takes a few minutes & that's it. I haven't saw many rebates for less than .50 & lots of them are for $1. To me, that is def worth a few minutes. I hit the December goal, which added an additional $5 to my total then I reached some promo goal yesterday which gave me another $5. I plan on using this app every time I shop then cash my rebate out in November to use for Christmas presents! I'm so glad I found this app, just wish I had found it sooner!
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!
Used to be great. There are many problems now.
by Marsray on 2016/02/07 02:03
I have used this app for nearly a year. I've been very pleased in the past with the cash amount, quality, variety, and speed of processing rebates. I haven't been pleased recently. I referred friends in the past but will not any more. Customer service was great until recently. They used to respond quickly, accurately, and with clear knowledge of any issues. Their responses were often within hours of me contacting them. Not now. This past week I've been dealing with a certain representative and it has been infuriating. Not only has she failed to understand my issue, she continues to ask me for more and more "proof". This week I've sent her seven photos including screenshots of the app to substantiate my claim. Her response was to tell me the rebate wasn't working because it wasn't available at the retailer where I shopped. Seriously? Has she ever used this app? I sent her screenshots of the rebate clearly showing the rebate on the retailer page and a list indicating the retailer was a participating party. She seems to be doing everything to blame this on something I did rather than address the issue. I don't appreciate her lack of professionalism, lack of knowledge of the issue, and slow response time.
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 😊👏.
I'm in love with IBOTTA!
by kk hurst on 2016/01/01 15:24
I have been using this app since I discovered it in September. I own a cleaning business and I'm extremely busy so I always want to coupon, but don't have time ! This app has literally saved me $442. SINCE SEPTEMBER! I'm in love! I love the bonuses and while I normally cook from scratch, some of the foods that are easier dinners I would have never tried but now love! I buy a lot of wine (for my house) buy also have friends that love wine and this app has saved me money on birthday presents and Christmas presents! Not to mention getting money back on cleaning supplies for my business. Hands down this is the only app I really use, and my first review on something in years, but I tell everyone about this app! My friends, my family, the grocery store cashiers! EVERYONE. It's great! I did see someone mention the raise in cashing out, which I agree makes it a bit harder to achieve. I did have a issue with not being able to cash out, but IBOTTA tech support worked it out with me within three days so it was handled well. Download this app! I promise you will be addicted!
So easy to save money!!
by Jayline87 on 2015/10/16 19:38
The whole idea behind ibotta is amazing but sometimes apps that say you can save money don't actually save you very much and difficult to use. Ibotta is so easy. I like the way the app is set up and organized so you can quickly find a store you're looking for. The videos you have to watch to unlock deals are shorter than the adds on other apps and the polls/surveys are are 1 question. And finally they make it really easy to take the picture of your receipt when you're done and show you where to line it up and if you have a rewards card with a store you don't even have to scan your receipt. I love the teams feature, you can save extra money with that. It would be nice to add people who don't have their account linked with Facebook. My only issue with the app is certain stores make you have a store reward card to save money there. I understand why they do that but there are some stores I don't shop at often enough to get a card at. Overall it's a great app that I would definitely recommend.
Love free money !!
by Juliem1679 on 2015/08/13 13:03
I joined about a year ago and have already earned $200 on things that I already buy! I've had teammates with higher earnings so I know it is possible to really reap the benefits if this easy little app. I've had a few issues along the way, but it was mostly my fault: didn't update credit card info for other apps which caused this one not to work. (Took care of that in 3 minutes). Camera did crash a few times while taking a pic but that again was fixed when I restarted the phone. I have not cashed out yet, not ready to do so! The only complaint I have is that not all rebates are available at all stores. Mg favorite store was just recently added so now I don't have to go to multiple in a day. I just look at ibotta when I do my shopping list and activate the rebates. If I happen to see something that is on sale and a good rebate, then I'll get it. Really could not have asked for a Better rebate app, I have another one that is basically useless, just waiting for the minimum payout and I'm cashing out. Love ibotta
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!!!
Too much work for pennies
by Ga1j1n on 2016/01/01 22:10
First off... They charge you for inactivity. A while back I started using the app and accrued a few dollars. I stopped using the app because it was really time consuming for the little return. Today, I decided I'd give it another try, so I logged into the app and was surprised to find that they'd charged me my entire balance for being inactive. Seriously? That's just ridiculous. Second, and last, you really have to do a lot of work for a very small amount of return. I don't know about you, but 30 minutes of my time is worth a lot more than ~$1-2. This app not only wastes your time while you're searching for products and scanning receipts, it also makes shopping a scavenger hunt... Scouring aisles for a specific product. A 30 minute shopping trip can easily turn into an hour-plus ordeal. Now that I've bashed the app... Let me say that they've done a great job developing it. It's a beautiful app and works well for what it is! Their product people just need to focus on making it less time intensive... And abolish that stupid inactivity fee! Way to welcome someone back to the app. :/
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!
Terrific app! LOVE it!!!
by edr1963 on 2015/12/01 22:11
This is my FAVORITE app! I've been using Ibotta for one month and have made a little over $65! It takes some time and effort to figure out how to use it properly, and you may make a few mistakes at first. Don't let that discourage you. Look at them as learning opportunities. I strongly recommend that you read their Terms of Use, ESPECIALLY Section 10, Prohibited Conduct. They are very strict about this, and violations, even unintentional ones, can result in immediate deactivation of your account. (Mine WAS reactivated as a one-time courtesy after only a couple of days and a couple of emails, which has made me very happy! My money was still there and had even been increased by two referral bonuses that had come in while I was deactivated!) If you obey their rules, and carefully read and follow the rebate information, you shouldn't have any problems. There is a Help section in the menu that is pretty informative, and help from Ibotta Support is only an email away. They replied to me the very next day.
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!
Don't understand complaints
by Earlenaw on 2015/12/24 07:14
It seems that everyone that has a complaint is complaining about nothing. I am new to the world of rebate apps but I have downloaded everyone I could find in an effort to find the best apps and save the most money. I found Ibotta to be the easiest one to use. It also has the most rebates and the most useful rebates. They could raise the cash out amount to $50 and I would care as long as it doesn't expire. This is free money people! Please stop complaining. Or use one of the other apps that will send you a check in the mail after you reach $20 or the ones that only have 9 useless rebates and one useful one for .25 cents. Gosh, people will find anything to complain about. Oh and to the people who complain about the length of time to verify rebates, I have $12 in rebates for things that I buy on a regular anyway and I have only belonged to Ibotta for about 5 days. For the 5 receipts I had, each one was verified within 5-10minutes.
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!
Love this app
by 1f555? on 2015/11/18 15:17
I used to really love this app. I've gotten a lot of rebates. Only complaint is that for the "any brand" rebates, I hate that you have to watch a video (or 2) to unlock something like $.20. I'm a busy mom and don't have time to watch all those videos for things like milk, eggs and vegetables. I hardly use the prepackaged rebates, so the videos impact a majority of the time I have to use on this. I deal with the videos, but would love to see easier ways to get those rebates. That's the only reason it's not 5 stars in my opinion. It's a great app and I can't believe how easy it is to get the money back! Update: Removed a star because now there are more videos in the new update :( Over 90% of the items I selected had videos. This is getting crazy. Also, where did the shopping list go? It looks like we have to scroll through all the items again to see what rebate we have on our list. The list feature was so useful and now it's hidden really well or gone. It may be time to cash out and move on to a different, more time-friendly app.
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.
Annoyed by another account deactivation...
by tracylynne2809 on 2015/10/21 03:50
I don't usually rate apps but here I find myself with a deactivated Ibotta account for the second time, and I'm annoyed enough to write a review. The first time I apparently submitted a receipt that had already been submitted. My bad, didn't know it had. And now I'm waiting to hear what I've done this time. But like I said to them in my email, there needs to be a better way of going about this, like maybe alerting users that a receipt has already been submitted, or sending an email saying "Hey sorry, but it looks like you've already submitted this receipt for these rebates, so we can't process it." Opting for a complete account deactivation is harsh and makes it seem like the app's developers assume all users are deceitful, and not just humans who err. Hopefully this review will be seen by someone that can make some changes at Ibotta, because I love this app and use it very often. This is just a big stumbling block in the way of it being a five star app!
Great app
by Fun when bored on 2015/12/01 02:58
I've only had one problem with this app and I've been using it for I think 2 years. The issue came when I bought something for a 20$ rebate. I got a price adjustment from Walmart and they thought I was using a return receipt. They initially gave me my money, then took it back and locked my account. My account was locked for 2 weeks. When they saw they made an error, they refunded me the money. Since email is the only way for support, it is annoying to wait for a reply which can take up to a week. Then, a week or two went by after they gave me my money back and they again took back the 20$. I told them the issue should have been resolved already and why they took my money a second time i have no idea. Overall, great app and even with that annoying encounter I still use the app even though I was hesitant after they froze 50$. Highly recommend. Even though it's not much money to be saved on each item, it adds up quickly.
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!
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!
Love it!
by Blaiirlucas on 2015/10/26 01:36
Ibotta is a great app! It's very easy to use and I love that they added the options for any kind of milk, apples, bananas, etc. It is easy to scan products and turn in receipts. It says it could take 24 hours to approve but mine are usually approved within a few hours or sometimes it's been minutes. Extremely easy to cash out. I cash out with venmo and have used the money to help pay my car payment that I always use venmo to pay. It also goes to your bank right away when transferred. The only things I wish were different...I love to shop at Aldi and wish I could use this app when I go there. Please add Aldi! The only other thing is that they do not accept my bank at the moment but they will accept my debit card from that bank, but you can only transfer earnings to a bank account. So right now I am not able to transfer any earnings to my account. Besides that it's perfect!
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!
Worth the effort
by Hazgrl on 2016/01/11 17:16
I already make a list each week, so using the shopping cart is easy. It helps me see what things on my list have rebates. I cross reference it with the store I'm in to see if I've missed anything. The any brand rebates are the best, and getting rebates on fresh produce, eggs, milk, yogurt and cheese are wonderful. I only had an issue once trying to verify club soda, so I must have just purchased a flavor they didn't rebate. Otherwise, the more you use it the easier it becomes. The shopping cart is nice because it saves everything you put in there and you check it off when you don't need it. Week after week, I buy the same things so it's already on my list. I use it while I'm in the store, but you can always wait and scan your items at home while you are putting them away. It adds about 10 extra minutes to each shopping trip, but it's worth it.
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.
The Catch
by AshleyDraperSanchez on 2016/02/03 16:17
I, like other reviewers, loved this app so much at first! But now that I've had and used it for a while, I'm growing disappointed. It seems that the more you use it, the less you get. In other words you are punished for loyally using their app. It seems to me, if you are loyal (and refer many people as I have), the amount of rebates available to you should be more and at larger amounts...or at least the same! The opposite occurs though, you end up getting lower rebates (.25 vs .75 before, etc) and LESS rebates the more active you are 😔. Now this may not be them at all, it may be due to the deals they have with the product manufacturers, but none-the-less there needs to be incentive to stick around. More and higher bonuses for completing tasks, etc. otherwise we feel like we were baited and hooked 😒. It's still a great app, and if you can continue to refer and build a team it's defiantly worth it! I would just like to see us rewarded for loyally using and referring, but punished.
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.
Easy to get real money!!
by Rosie VS on 2015/11/22 18:59
I started using app and was a little skeptical at first, but after six months, I must say I LOVE IT! I get money back for buying groceries and have used it to pay for my Apple Music! You can get money back for so many items from many stores, but I've only used it for HEB and Walmart and I can easily get $10 to $20 with the .20 to 1.00 rebates on regular items like potatoes, onions, milk, bread, bacon, eggs, etc. This app gives rebates for stuff that we normally buy, along with some items that are not too popular, of course, but it works for me!! And if you get friends to use it too, you can get an extra dollar or two without having to buy anything! The hardest part is actually making the time to scan items and take picture of receipt, but in reality it only takes less than five minutes. It's worth it to me! Love this app!
Love it!
by Aligowally on 2016/01/08 17:17
The only reason hat I'm not giving 5 stars is that occasionally there are issues with downloading when I am out shopping. Otherwise 5 star worthy. I am big into couponing but not crazy couponing (like getting 17 different newspapers so I can get 74 bottles of mustard for free). I only buy what I need or will use. This app seems to have the most choices for rebates and stores. I Love the any brand rebates you can get. I can nearly always get cash back on at least one rebate with each weekly shopping trip for this reason. Admittedly this does take a while to add up but if you use 3 or 4 couponing apps and stack with paper coupons it can really add up. Right now I have about $60 worth of rebates to cash in on 3 different apps. It only takes a few minutes after a shopping trip to submit your receipt and scan products. To make it easier, scan your products during the shopping trip.
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.
Mostly awesome
by Tikiton1389 on 2016/01/08 05:40
I've only been using for about a week and I have almost $20 in rebates. When is free money not awesome. Pretty simple to us and I haven't found it anymore time consuming then scrolling through Facebook(at least I'm making money) I don't rebate anything I wouldn't normally buy so unlike other reviews I'm not increasing my shopping time. My complain is store specific; most rebates are the same at many stores so you are wasting time scrolling through each store and only finding the same stuff but then if you assume they are the same you won't get the rebate because it was store specific. For example I looked up baby items bought a pack of diapers and after realized that the rebate was specially for a different store. Other apps (I have many rebate apps heck you can make money for buying the same stuff on 4 different ones) are not store specific and save time.
I was wrong.....
by Jade928 on 2015/08/13 00:07
I was wrong. When Initially downloaded the app- I thought it was going to be such a waste of time! I have 4 kids ages 5 and under (twins included) and did not want to "take the time" in watching 10 second videos or taking a 1 question poll. Then I said- I'll do it for a month and we'll see how that goes. I have already earned over $50 in a short time and I get that cash straight into my Paypal account! I love how they also have bonus cash as well. To make easy I just scan the product in the store, so all I have to do is scan the receipt as soon as I get it. This app is not hard at all. Very user friendly. If you have common sense you can use this app and earn a lot of money. On top of doing this- if you clip coupons or print them- I actually only ended up really paying $3 for pampers diapers! Thank you ibotta!
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!
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.
