How I made $79.09 in August with Ibotta

In case it’s not been made clear in any of my most recent posts, I would like to clarify here and now that I love to make make money. The best part is while I’m spending it. Wait, what? How is that even possible?

Well it is. There are several apps on my phone that I love to use religiously every month while shopping. There is one in app in particular that I’ll use more than most because I’m constantly buying groceries daily. I have retrieve something from these purchases.

Ibotta has been on point with keeping up with trends and rewarding its users with awesome bonuses for using it. The more you buy the more you can unlock to earn even more during the months.

There is always a bonus from week to week. Newer rebates are released and therefore unlimited earning potential. It makes that less than fun grocery run more pleasant.

Ibotta has been around for awhile now and has gone through so many updates and changes. From what I can see it’s only improved and there are some stores that make it easier to shop and earn than others.

Stores like Food Lion, Lowe’s Foods, etc have loyalty programs when you shop and require you to input your loyalty card number into the app. So when you shop and purchase a rebate item that you saved and qualifies you will receive your rebate once the app confirms the purchase. The downside to this is that it takes up to 1-2 days for it to update. But there are no hassles with receipts with that option.

Walmart now has barcodes on their receipts that can be easily be scanned with the app to verify checkout and give an instant payout from your purchase.

What I like about it is that month to month there are fresh new rebates available and they bring back popular rebates often. The one downside is sometimes you may not always be able to find certain products at some stores. I always seem to find most of them at Wal Mart though.

This month alone I made $79.09. Probably the most I have in a single month. Usually, I’ll cashout as soon as I hit the limit so I can help pay towards my credit card payment but I’m thinking about prolonging until after the year concludes to see just how much I can make.

Based on the earnings where I accessed the app it showed me all of the rebates I earned from each day plus the bonuses I earned for completing the trips before the deadline.

This was obviously a big month for us.

I made $45.59 from just the trips alone and the remaining $33.50 are from bonuses. Some of the bonuses start out small from the beginning and then increase after each time you meet the deadline.

So, far to date I have made $469.97 with this app. As I said they are constantly evolving and updating the app.

I love that I can find something I actually like to buy and unlock even more perks. It ranks very high on my favorite app list. They actually just came out with the with Pay with Ibotta option that offers its users 1% on top of the additional rebates you can earn from your next trip when you choose this option. Just follow the steps to sign up and you can earn even more.

What are your favorite perks about this app? Any dislikes or improvements you would like to see with it? Feel free to share here.

  1. Hey Kelli-Anne! Thanks for sharing your experience with these two apps. I’ve been looking at joining one of these platforms for awhile. I used to think because I didn’t do a lot of online shopping that it wasn’t for me. But, boy was I wrong. You certainly cleared up some questions and doubts for me. I am sure this is going to be super helpful to plenty because nowadays these platforms are becoming more and more popular.


    1. Yes ma’am. I’m so glad I could clear up your questions and I hope you can sign up up for both. They are great apps and so fun to earn from.
