You can also use coupons with these offers for even MORE savings. Once you earn $5,your money can be deposited into your PayPal account or donated instead.

After using this app for a couple of months-I’ve learned some useful tips:

Ibotta currently supports the following devices:

-iPhone 3GS and newer
-iPod Touch fourth generation and newer
-iPad 2 and newer
-Android devices running on platform 2.2 and newer (see minimum requirements below)
Android users: Your device must meet the minimum requirements below to run the Ibotta app:
  • Camera with autofocus
  • Network access to location data
  • Portrait and landscape screen orientation
  • Wi-Fi compatible
  • Touchscreen
  • OS 2.2 or higher
Please note: Ibotta does not support any device without a camera.

iPad 2 and iPod 4 users: iPad 2 and iPod 4 do not have the barcode scan function, therefore offers cannot be redeemed from retailers using text strings on their receipts instead of product codes. You will not see them load onto the list of available retailers.Windows Phone & Blackberry users: Unfortunately, Ibotta is not compatible with these mobile platforms. While we are still exclusively rolling out our iOS and Android platforms, we will be exploring new options in 2013.

Other Tips:

  1. Each Product offer is one-time use ONLY. Example: you purchased 3 MIO Beverage enhancers and have a $1 MIO offer in your ibotta account, you will only receive $1 regardless of the amount purchased. however, if you redeem that $1 MIO offer and receive ANOTHER MIO offer after redeeming the first, you CAN redeem the second offer as long as the 2nd MIO beverage enhancer is on a separate receipt. 
  2. when you receive new products in your account be sure to complete the offers if you think you will be purchasing that product. Products can disappear or the values can change overnight!
  3. Not all products are available at every store. Before you purchase the product you can make sure that product is available to redeem by completing the offers associated with the product and doing the following: Click “redeem” then “pick Store” and you will see all products that are available to purchase at that particular store.

    I actually uninstalled the Ibotta app. Out of 6 purchases, only two would download. Not all offers are available at all stores and I also had problems with the receipts not being accepted. Way too much hassel for a little bit of $$.

    I have been having a good time with Ibotta. Almost 10 bucks in 3 months! And most of those products I ended up not paying anything for which was great. There has been a couple of times where my receipt and product didn’t match up, which was strange and annoying. I found out if you go to the store with the receipt you can upload right then and there and get the right variety or match up, if the product you bought isn’t working. I just keep my receipts that I need to match up correctly in my coupon container and complete the Ibotta matching when I shop now.
    if you want to try it, here is my referrel link! thanks so much :) let me know you have any other questions.
