It’s the real deal
I love Ibotta. At first I was skeptical but I needed to find ways to make extra cash so I was like, “why not?!”.
It’s really simple to use. You simply create your account, then log in and select some of the places you usually shop. They have tons of offers from May different stores and retailers. Select offers of the items you want to purchase and they will add to your account. If you make a purchase online, start in ibotta to get to the store website. That way you get credit for your purchases. If you go in-store, just scan your receipt into the app. For all the in-store items, you get the credit based on the offers in ibotta for EACH VALID ITEM on your receipt. I made my first $20 my first month. I’ve been a member for around 3 months and So far I’ve made close to $150! No joke. You can cash out to specific gift cards, PayPal, or just use the new “Pay With Ibotta” feature. I usually cash mine out to my PayPal. The only downside I would say I’m having is that my friends are as skeptical as I am, except they are skeptics that won’t give it a shot. So I’ve missed most of my referral bonuses but other than that, it’s great. Speaking of bonuses, they also have different bonuses where you can earn extra cash every month. All in all, it’s really cool and getting money back for things you’re going to buy anyway is the cherry on top. Try it. You will not regret it!
Such an easy way to earn money
I have used Ibotta for over a year now and it’s become part of my life basically I’ll tell you why; every time I make a trip to the grocery store for whatever reason I either check Ibotta before hand while making my list, or when there is something specific I need I will usually check to see if I can get money back on it before I make my decision on that specific item. If the item I have on my list is on Ibotta but to qualify for that cash back I will need to buy multiple, I will usually opt for the deal where I get money back. The reason I do so is because overtime it all adds up and that cash is great for date nights or just money to have saved back.
I’ll be honest I was a little skeptical at first on how you really get that cash back and actually it’s really easy you pick where you would like the money to go basically like a gift card, they send you an email super quick with your gift card number, and usually a barcode so that you can use it off of your phone or print it out. I’ve never had any issues using my cashback at a store or restaurant. I love that they have so many options to choose from!
Super easy way to earn money, definitely give it a try.
A lot of false advertising
I gave it 3 stars because I only receive the cash back for my purchases about 3 out 5 times. This app used to be really great. But now they are really, really bad for falsely advertising cash back on items just to get you to purchase them. Many, many...many times now I have purchased the EXACT item shown. I always read the full details of each offer to make sure it doesn’t require you to purchase two, or only a certain size, etc. I will even scan the barcode for a match when I’m in the store! Then I get home, scan my receipt and uh oh...”item doesn’t match”. I check my receipt to make sure the cashier did indeed charge me for the item..yep, it’s there. Hmmmm convenient way for them to cash in on successfully pushing you the product without having to actually pay you the money. This past week they even went as far as to go back and take away the credit that I had earned on an item. I received an email stating that they couldn’t match it even though their app successfully matched it to my receipt! It was indeed the correct item. Don’t even bother with trying to contact their care team because you just get the generic “oh we’re sorry but you probably didn't purchase the correct item...please review details of all items before purchasing in the future” type of response...much like their responses to most of these reviews 😒. I hope they do better in the future.

Thank you for taking the time to write this extensive review! If the app is telling you that the barcode doesn't match, more than likely it's only because we don't have the barcode in our system yet!
