Eye Spy: Ibotta App

Jun 13, 2016 12:33PM ● By Press Release

A lot of people are starting to feel the economic crunch; trying to make money stretch a little further any way they can. For some people this means using coupons when shopping for groceries and household items. Along with clipping newspaper coupons, there are also several apps available on your smart phone to help increase your savings with little extra effort. One such app is Ibotta.

With this app you can unlock items that you know you plan to purchase. Once you purchase the items you simply scan your receipt using the app and camera on your phone to verify the purchase. Each item is worth anywhere from ten cents to about two dollars. Once the purchase has been verified you can then move the cash amount you earned into a PayPal account. Ibotta lets you earn up to $40 per shopping trip. The savings from this app can also be combined with other apps such as the Walmart Savings Catcher, (see our October 2015 issue) to get the biggest savings.

If you haven't yet, check out the app and start earning some of your grocery money back!
