Easy to follow and use. Ibotta responds very quickly with savings.

Love love love it's a little work but easy money back!
Bad Customer Service
by Thegodgifted on 2015/10/06 01:54
The app is fine, though customer service is horrible. They blocked me because they think 3 people logged in to the same device, when in reality everyone was behind a router and had there own individual receipts. Tried explaining this to the customer service and they wouldn't unblock the account.
by 👑Kat on 2015/10/06 01:45
I've saved so much money and I'm up past the $50 dollar mark now I use it to shop on eBay love this app
I used to really like it
by Itiredofallthis on 2015/10/06 01:25
But then it wouldn't let me log back in. It hasn't let me for like a week now and it's really annoying. It would constantly be logging me out
Having loads of fun
by billreyna on 2015/10/06 01:02
Just love making money on items I buy. Easy redemption process.
Super Great App
by Lone a Wolf on 2015/10/06 00:23
I truly love this app! It gives back when you wouldn't even expect it! Keep it up Ibotta!!!
Love it
by Mama Bumblebee on 2015/10/06 00:18
So far, this is the easiest way for me to save money. I recommend it to anyone.
by fskts on 2015/10/05 23:33
I scanned my items and took pictures of the receipt including the store name. I got a message that no rebates were found and to check my email for more details. It stated it was the wrong retailer...omg the name was on the receipt. I decided to give it one more shot. I made a purchase at another store scanned my items and then took pictures of the receipt. I pressed retake and it deleted all the pics set my phone down to fix the receipt to retake and picked up my phone and it had deleted the scans too. Not worth the effort nor my time to go thru the cupboards to rescan everything. I'm deleting the app. For those of you who love it...I'm glad it works for you.

I Love Ibotta
by Lluvgames on 2015/10/05 19:06
I love using Ibotta! It's a quick and easy way to make a few extra bucks! Why not use it? I'm going to shop anyway. So might as well earn a few extra dollars for doing what l'm already doing. Thanks!!!
Love it!
by Vanessa Phan on 2015/10/05 18:08
Haven't gotten enough to get a check back yet, but sooner than later :)
by Mattback314 on 2015/10/05 18:05
Pretty cool app...
Wonderful concept
by Biggest burrito on 2015/10/05 18:03
I really enjoy the app as well as the additional savings on everyday purchases. Wish there was some way to get credit when you buy more than one of the same items per receipt.
Not working
by Katrinaaaaaxx on 2015/10/05 17:04
I used to use this app every week before I went grocery shopping and loved it. However, ever since I upgraded to the new iOS, it doesn't work anymore. It keeps telling me my credentials are invalid and, despite my multiple password resets, it won't work.
by Lc56565646 on 2015/10/05 16:49
Love it!
by SXYmama4 on 2015/10/05 15:56
This is totally legit! I am loving this new app. Get $ back on buying this I already buy on a weekly basis is amazing! Keep the rebates coming!
Love it!!
by Dhurricane74 on 2015/10/05 15:06
What a wonderful way to add a few dollars back into your wallet when buying things I normally would anyhow. Big bonus that it is so easy to use!!
Hate this app
by Foooooood tast good on 2015/10/05 14:21
So bade
Great App!!!
by Zom-bee on 2015/10/05 13:38
It's a great way to earn a few extra bucks on the things you already purchase. I hope to see more "Any Brand" options in the future.
Love it
by huskerjill on 2015/10/05 13:14
Very easy to use. Get rewarded super quick! Lots of great products and stores!!!
by Detrick W on 2015/10/05 12:58
I haven't redeemed any of my savings just yet but it looks like a really cool app
Like this app
by marylove2x333 on 2015/10/05 12:33
I love the variety of items but I have to buy items I normally wouldn't to get the rebates... For the most part, I only use the rebates that are generalized.
by Mrs Godwin on 2015/10/05 12:03
Never works.... Missing accumulated $$ uninstall
by Petesbaby on 2015/10/05 11:50
This is the best money-saving app for groceries by far. Saving Star and Checkout 21 don't even begin to compare to it.
Great app for saving
by Mommyonamission82 on 2015/10/05 11:18
You can earn rebates on items you buy regularly quickly. It's taken me forever to try to earn the amount to cash out it with on Checkout 51. With this app it took me just over a month of claiming offers & I just just checked out my 1st $10. You do have to earn $10 before you can checkout, but that's better than other apps. Most are about $30 before you get paid. I waited to get paid before writing this review because of other reviews claims. I checked out with no problems as soon as I got $10. Happy saving!!
Love love love it!!!
by Jasminejazm8 on 2015/10/05 10:48
I love this app!! It's super easy to use and it saves me money!!! 😍😍😉
Great and easy.
by amg420 on 2015/10/05 06:09
This app is great. You can actually save a lot more than I thought when I signed up. There's a lot of things I would buy anyway. Worth getting and easy to use.
by Eliana Milazzo on 2015/10/05 05:55
Excellent app
by Sal5601 on 2015/10/05 05:05
This is an awesome app!! It literally pays you to buy stuff you were already going to buy. You and have the funds transferred to your Pay Pal account or your Venmo account, or get gift cards. I'll say it again awesome app!!!!!
App update wiped out my account
by Itiscb on 2015/10/05 04:59
Terrible customer service when I needed their help.
by PreshK on 2015/10/05 03:30
Great App!
Awesome app
by April schultz on 2015/10/05 02:38
This is great!! A more advanced easier way to "coupon". No more clipping. It's well worth it!!
Fairly easy
by 1tamad on 2015/10/05 01:21
I love this app. It is quite easy to use. I wish there are more items that I can use it. Cannot complain though because I have been able to save a considerable amount. Thank you!
App screws up phone
by Jejdkdidiehd on 2015/10/05 01:17
This app does block ads, but at the cost of really long load times and tons of page and app crashes
Love Ibotta app!!!
by H Gentry on 2015/10/05 01:16
Great app for coupons and earn cash! Wish they would add more grocery rewards like meijers mperks

by Herm Morse on 2015/10/05 01:09
I love iBotta.. it's so simple and it involves things I already do every day but now I can make a little $$ doing them!!
Love the app
by Sportsfan7777777 on 2015/10/04 23:41
Love the app. It's relatively easy to use. It usually has things that I buy every week and the rebates add up very quickly.
Why wouldn't you use this app?!!
by TheSoldiersMom on 2015/10/04 22:33
Do you shop for groceries? Then you should use this app! Money in your pocket!
Pretty good app
by petri1270 on 2015/10/04 22:31
Overall Ibotta is a decent coupon/rebate app. It started off great but has had more problems lately and the quality and types of offers have gone down. Hopefully they will return to less problems and more and better offers.
Love it!!
by Ty ph on 2015/10/04 19:15
Love this app. Could be slightly easier to use but it works well.
Awesome Savings!
by Teacolanut on 2015/10/04 18:37
Love this app! I use it every time I shop.
Love love

It's an amazing app.. Don't really trust apps like this.. But this one is awesome and easy to use !
Ibotta is AWESOME!
by Couponin' momma on 2015/10/04 16:05
I love ibotta--easy way to get money for extra shopping! Who doesn't love to get paid to SHOP!?
Worst app ever. They are criminals!
by Michdmb on 2015/10/04 15:51
Food Lion card does not synch. You send copies of receipts to the worst customer service agents ever. They either ignore your emails or simply will ask for the same information 5 times over. My account is short up to $3.35. They refuse to credit it. I have all proof. Do not use this app. Again. Food lion card does not synch. They are idiots.
Great app. Very convenient
by Tee Tee 410 on 2015/10/04 14:39
I have been using the app for a while now. When using with manufactures coupons you can save a lot. Here is my referral code to get more savings eyvkxq

Fuel for Starbucks or iTunes
by Allifunnn on 2015/10/04 13:21
Satisfied thus far! Ibotta is a simple way to get those extra treats without spending the cash. Select what you're getting, scan items, scan receipt and BAM! Rewards. I also love that you get rewards for alcohol as well.

I like turtles!
Love it
by MADDMAXX67 on 2015/10/04 12:10
Love it. I especially like the items that I use to stick my pantry and fridge. Might only be $0.20 sometimes but better than nothing.
by PinkieBoo78 on 2015/10/04 09:20
I really love this APP. Between using the Ibotta and coupons I believe I'm paying close to nothing for these items. The App is user friendly. I've been using this App since June/July and I'm completely addicted. I would recommend this to anyone...
Love it !
by Wtfmandeezy on 2015/10/04 05:31
I never write reviews but i feel the need to share how much i love this app. Easiest way to get into couponing!
Love this app!
by GiGgLeSnDrEaMs on 2015/10/04 04:51
Yes, it does take a little work, but so does coupons! No clipping needed & it post to your account quickly!
Great app
by Pawsoncounty on 2015/10/04 04:47
I really enjoy this app. I'm new at it and so far it has been working out great. I like the fact that I have a few days after I buy products to redeem.
Better Rebates!!!
by MrsButter on 2015/10/04 03:10
I like Ibotta, but it needs better rebates to choose from. Some of the things I would never buy and the good things I do purchase of course there is no rebate for it.
So far so good
by Alphajeta on 2015/10/04 03:03
So far so good

Had this app 1 week and already made $10 on my first grocery trip
by QuartKneeMitchell on 2015/10/04 02:22
How am I supposed to use the app when it crashes and shuts down before it even opens. :-(
Great app!
by Jgrin88 on 2015/10/04 01:49
I love it!
It won't let me cash out.
by rewhunter on 2015/10/04 00:36
After making a certain amount of money they won't let you have more. I've been locked from my account.
Works great! Cool idea!!!
by Candichay on 2015/10/04 00:16
Wish there were more offers at a time, other than that it's nice to be able to get paid for buying things I already buy! And I love that I can transfer the money into a Starbucks gift card!! Awesome!
Love this app!
by AggieP2011 on 2015/10/03 23:58
I love using this app! Easy to use and great savings!
Love It!!!
by Jwckappasig on 2015/10/03 23:15
I love getting rewarded for what I'm already buying. I do agree the offers could be updated more often. That being said, ibotta adds new varieties of offers often.
Error403 with new ios9
by gkgirl on 2015/10/03 22:37
With the new update 9.0.2 there is an error that will not load the Ibotta app. Please fix.
Should have more products to save money on
by Alethia N on 2015/10/03 21:05
I like this app, but I totally dislike the fact that they only let you choose what they already have on the app. Milk, bread, and a limit. And you only get like 50 cents on most of it, unless you pay more on certain products. They NEED to add more food and different other stuff, so people can save more money! But overall, I like the app, but it just need new items added..especially like Reese's peanut butter cereal and more. Come on..crew. Let's get it all the way together. 😁😁
Love it but...
by Shonny87654 on 2015/10/03 21:00
Love this but I noticed lately a bunch of products aren't being recognized when clearly it is the correct one, when I send the item in for a correction they deny my request :(
by Mrs.C.Saez on 2015/10/03 20:44
Love this app! So happy I don't have to deal with paper coupons! Can't wait to cash in my coupons!!
Easy way to use
by Bbr81 on 2015/10/03 19:54
So far its easy to use. Like that u get a rebate on most common items at any store.
Super Cool!
by Dmsevi on 2015/10/03 19:11
Alright third time I try to write a review cause every nickname is taken. But seriously, this app is worth the time investment! Real nice returns on everyday use items you have to buy anyways! Made $12 in under a week!

by dsinned on 2015/10/03 18:31
Very easy to use. I use all my savings to buy Sephora gift cards.
Great app!

I'm new to it but so far it is easy to use and my friend who shared it with me loves it!
Love it!!!

It works and I'm loving it
Awesome app!
by agwetzel on 2015/10/03 12:39
Ibotta is incredibly easy to use and I like it more than similar apps (like checkout 51).
It could be better
by Mymaddygirl17 on 2015/10/03 12:36
Sure wish I could just scan my receipt verse every item though
by Armi922 on 2015/10/03 12:14
Absolutely love this app.

Now when I try to log in it won't let me, I've even changed password and it won't let me in. I'm terribly sad because I love using iBotta. Help!!!
by KelcMay on 2015/10/03 06:05
My fiancé and I both downloaded the app about two weeks ago. And tonight we cashed in and redeemed what we had. We were able to redeem about $40 towards our grocery bill! I love this app. I personally have not had a single problem.
Love It.

by Tiffanyla89 on 2015/10/03 01:03
So far I've saved $25 with this app! Had a bit of technical difficulties but they resolved the problem and now I Love it!
I definitely recommend this app
by Jen7735! on 2015/10/03 00:45
I love this app! Easy to use, has great brands, has the grocery store I use (military commissary; which many coupon apps don't) & when friends earn money (teamwork) you earn more money. This is the best grocery/coupon app I've used!
Love it!!
by Niexoxo on 2015/10/02 23:41
Free money on things you probably already planned to buy!! How can you not love it!! Connect through Facebook and earn more money with friends!!
Luv this program!

This is an awesome app for families with large grocery requirements! I wish more clothing and electronic options
by Dixie cowgirl 2010 on 2015/10/02 23:05
I love ibotta it is so awesome
Nice App
by Thatnotmyname on 2015/10/02 23:05
You go to the store and buy most of these things anyway and you might even find something new to try and get paid. I have no problem with that!
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.
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.
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.
by Alyssa kiyomi on 2014/04/03 16:02
I started using this app when it first came out! At first it was a smaller database with only a few items, but now it has grown to a variety of stores and products! I have already earned over $500 on this app (proof on Instagram- couponingprincessss) I made so much money by staying dedicated, referring friends and followers and completing bonuses! The ibotta team has been more than happy every time to help me out with any issues that may happen. I love this app and it has saved me a lot of money! I would like to thank ibotta and it's team for amazing service! And I also love how they are stationed in Colorado!! Woohoo! Colorado pride! One thing I wish this app had was more variety in the beauty department. I am huge into beauty products and there is a whole beauty community that would appreciate that kind of addition! Also maybe exclusive to Colorado and other states participating in the legalization of marijuana, there could maybe be some rebates for marijuana shops also! Just a thought but that industry is growing fast also!(: anyways...thanks so much ibotta! This app is one of my faves! EVERYONE NEEDS THIS!
This is great!
by Scooterfly20 on 2014/10/02 07:43
I haven't been using this app for long, I just found it maybe a week ago. But I'm excited, especially after I successfully submitted my first purchases for rebates. It was pretty simple to do, I didn't mind scanning the items or taking a photo of my receipt. I had a VERY long receipt; yet I was able to capture all of it. It wasn't long before I got a notification that everything had been verified and I'm on my way to redeeming! The only thing that I look forward to seeing change (I hope) is more product options. Although I am not complaining; it was pretty awesome that I could choose my own favorite brands when it came to bread, eggs and milk. Also, I had the ability to use this app for coupons and still use my in-store coupons. I like to shop at Safeway and Fred Meyer which both have coupon apps which allow me to load the coupons to my account. Since I don't have to carry any of those coupons with me it's nice because then I can't forget them at home. Pretty cool what you can do now to save money, if you just take the time!
Great For Some Extra Cash!

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 😊👏.
Love free money !!

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!!!
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!
by Gmr1983 on 2015/02/19 22:34
I recently had an issue with a receipt not being excepted because the ink was running out and it was messed up. I had 4 rebates on that receipt. I submitted my issue and they took a closer look at the receipt and gave me rebates! So pleased!! However, I would like to see fresh produce offered for rebates! I buy a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables! I also find it a little aggravating when trying to earn a badge and my friends have already helped at their part that any purchases beyond that doesn't go toward the next reward...the $10 rewards this month took me forever because there wasnt items offered for rebates that I used. Otherwise I have found this app easy to use and pretty simple to follow. Ive earned almost $100 in 6 months...which is great considering I don't buy half if what is offered but it has been enough for me too enjoy getting money for products I DO buy regularly!
Good Couponing app
by JLECjuno1525 on 2015/02/22 12:54
I've been using this for a couple years and it works well. I've had no problems with payouts to my paypal account. Wish there was a bigger variety. Sometimes I look at the rebates and there is nothing that we use, other times there a number of things. Also wish it was universal across all of the stores. Last week I bought a few Ibotta items at Shop Rite, but the rebates weren't showing up for that grocery store while they were showing up for Wegman's. The App won't give me the gallon milk rebate for BJ's where the gallon of milk is 2 half gallons banded together. Also wish there was something easier than taking pics of your receipt, like maybe just taking pics of the Ibotta items on your receipt and the total. We're a family of 7 and my grocery receipts tend to be very long. It can take me 5 minutes to take a full pic to earn $0.25 or $0.50. A little frustrating. Overall though I like this app. It's worth a try.
Lost rebate
by Bee_sweet on 2014/05/22 14:10
I have enjoyed the savings from ibotta but I didn't get a second chance to submit a receipt for a rebate that has issue with "receipt pending" for not scanning correctly. I tried emailing and locating the rebate in the store category that I bought it from but the item icon was no longer there for me to verify my product and receipt for my second submission. Also you need to have time to do this. I had to wait for each item that I bought for verification. Secondly, a much inconvenience is ibotta won't accept duplicate receipts. I bought three qualified products at the same store on the same receipt. Well ibotta did not accept this. Basically their terms of use is "we cannot accept duplicate receipts," meaning there has to have a different receipt for each each rebate. For example, CVS has about 36 rebates currently and ibotta wants you to submit 36 different a receipts which is sooo inconvenient as a shopper with kids and not a lot of time in my hands. I hope in the future I will be able to click on the three items icon to verify one time on the same receipt.
A Great app!
by gumdropT on 2013/12/27 13:44
UPDATE- ok I finally got a hold of IBOTTA (I had to contact them through the website for IBOTTA), the support guy was very nice and tried everything he could to help. We ended up having to put in a new email for my app and that did the trick! I really love this app and now that I can cash out I love it even more! UPDATE- I can not get the app to send me an email with the Starbucks gift card I cashed out for! I've resent it many times! Also I click report an issue and I have yet to hear from ibotta! And I've sent it multiple times! If I ever get this fixed I'll give this app 5 stars again, but what's the point of using this app if I can't cash out?!?! -I really like this app! It's easy to use and is great for earning money on thing I buy anyway! I just wish there were more items to choose from and a setting that allowed you to manage what offers you receive.
I love this app
by onwardgo on 2013/02/08 23:50
I love to save money using coupons and now this allows me to earn money back. I love how there is an option that allows you to tell them weather you like them item or not (thumbs up or thumbs down by pressing information symbol on the top right of the product). When you give a thumbs down, it will replace the item with something else. And if you like them on FaceBook, you be able to keep up with their updates. They recently asked for copies of your receipts for Family Dollar, Food Lion, Albertsons, etc.. so they can work on getting those stores to be added to the app. I just don't see how anyone can dislike this app. It's basically free money back. It's working on getting better. They just added the grocery store Bi-Lo. And if you have a verified Pay-Pal account, you can get money transferred to your account without any fees.
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!
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
Getting Paid to Shop
by TheLRB on 2015/08/29 12:52
This create app will forever change the way I look at my grocery shopping. I like the fact that ibotta shows how much money we would get back from specific items at the grocery store. Coupons help us spend "less money," yet they don't wire that money back to our PayPal accounts. Scan the barcodes, and scan the receipt before you leave the store, and look forward to your instant rebates in less than 24 hours. Going forward I plan to use an Excel spreadsheet to list groceries listed in ibotta. In this spreadsheet, I will add a column to show how much money I receive after the purchase. This column of detail will motivate my choices. In summary my experience with ibotta will forever enhance my choices when I go to the store. Many thanks to everyone who helped to develop this app.
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!!
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 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.
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!!
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.
One of the best rebate apps
by HSchulze on 2015/08/22 14:50
Must have rebate apps: ibotta, mobisave (you'll have to wait a few weeks for your membership to be activated) and Checkout 51. Sometimes there will be rebates for an item on two of the apps and that adds up to more savings! Watch for sales and coupons that coordinate with rebates to save even more. Also a must for Walmart shoppers is the savings catcher inside the Walmart app. It price compares items and gives you money back to use at Walmart. If you're really pinching pennies, try Save Ya and Raise apps for discounted gift cards. Most deliver right to the app to be used immediately. Walmart is up to 3% discount (check for them often and grab when they're there as they go quick), I've gotten 9% discount on GameStop too. Great way to save all kinds of money.
Love it!
by BooBooBrains on 2014/02/01 13:33
I was always terrible with coupons. I'd cut them out once in awhile then forget to take them to the store or if I did remember them, they were probably expired! Ibotta is great because its always right there on my phone. Plus the amount you get back is often more than a coupon would be, PLUS if you are good with coupons, you can actually use a coupon for an item offered by Ibotta and get even more savings! I love the any brand offers or milk, eggs, etc. I have been using it since July when I was laid off and have already earned $125, which I have used to order stuff online and paid with Paypal. A few times I had trouble with items not scanning properly and it was corrected almost immediately. No complaints from me! Great app!
Great!!! But...
by Marsbars9 on 2015/05/06 05:42
This app is great!! I've already made over $20 just in the first week of using the app by simply buying items I was already going to buy! Other than it being a little time consuming (though really not that bad), my only complaint is that I wish the shopping list would show my items in a more compact, organized fashion and without repeating each item in different categories. In other words, it would be easier to find the items I've selected for a particular shopping trip if they were only listed once in my list and in a more compact way so I don't have to keep scrolling up and down the list as I shop. Also, I would love it if there was a way to check off the items as I put them in my cart. I just like being able to cross/check things off lists!
It could be better.

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!
Horrible user support - beware of user terms
by @llr3adyt@k3n on 2015/08/02 19:46
My fiancé had this app forever. He kept trying to get me to use it. I opened my account but never bothered to get started. About a month ago I took it for a test drive - using his account. I will admit I was hooked. Soon I had friends hooked. However the app is not first time user friendly and I know I was discouraged at first. So, I offered to help them with their first runs. Unbeknownst to me -- if you log on to more than one account on your mobile phone Ibotta will deactivate your account. Our most recent referral (teammate)- went out to buy the stuff promoted and when he came to me for help - his account was deactivated. Now my receipts are just pending - but Ibotta hasn't responded to the emails. I am on the search for a new app and have found great alternatives. If Ibotta corrects this issue - I would gladly edit this review, after all it does have advantages. Advantages I would love to share, once they get this right.
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.
Total scam - you can't cash out
by VolksVW on 2014/09/24 19:39
At first, this app seemed cool. I could earn rebates for some things I buy and then get money sent to my PayPal account or a gift card, right? Not quite. Now that I have enough money to cash out, when I try to cash out, it says I have to verify my email address by following the link that they supposedly just sent to my email. Only they don't send an email with the link. They don't send an email at all. I even reset my email address. Nothing. So I sent an email to them about the issue. Zero response. And in case you're thinking it's a problem with my email, it's not. The ibotta newsletter comes in just fine. Two phone calls to ibotta went unanswered as well. I even tried having it reset to my alternate email and have the link sent there. Nothing. Don't fall for the scam. And definitely don't write a positive review until you've tried to cash out, because you're not going to get your money.
I Love This App! ^_^.

I Love this app. I guess you can say I'm hooked at times cause I'm always wanting to shop, But only for the products I normally buy. There have been times I have purchased things I never knew existed or tasted and so my family and I bought the product we tried it and we like it and still got paid! ^_^. One thing I would like for Ibotta to do is add more stores I normally shop in and that are near my area and add more good stuff I think you should add more products every weekend that way we have more choices to buy different products every week. I give this app two thumbs up! Thank you Ibotta I love this app and I do recommend it to anyone who loves to shop save money and gets paid. 👍👍^_^.
Good, and room for improvement
by MarkBMarkB on 2014/11/01 19:37
I like using Ibotta and have gotten back over $100 using it. There are things I'd like to see improved though: - Especially when a store doesn't carry the required size of an item, accept multiples of a smaller size that meet or exceed the amount you need to buy. - When none of the partner stores in your area carry an item, accept a purchase from a non-partner store, and follow up with the non-partner store to get them on board, not force the user to do the leg work. I understand there may be technical difficulties with scanning a receipt from a non-partner store, but this is solveable. - Sometimes I have to verify the barcode on an item multiple times - in the store and when I'm redeeming the offer. Once should be enough.
