Raise your hand if you hate clipping out coupons? Yeah I know I can save a bunch of money, but when Sunday comes around and there’s a newspaper right in front of me filled with coupons I find myself not cutting them out. If you’re like me then the ibotta app is perfect for you. It’s a cash back app that allows you to receive cash back for your favorite grocery store items and best of all there’s no cutting out any coupons it’s all done digitally right from your phone. Today I’m sharing with you my ibotta tutorial and how you can start getting cash back on groceries.

#1. Download the app you can sign up here to download the ibotta app, when you sign up you’ll receive a $10 welcome bonus.
#2. Put in your area code so you can see which stores and offers are closest to you.
3. Once you check out the offers and make your way to your desired grocery store. For example if you wanted these Nature Valley Bars you would find them in your app and click add offer. You may have to answer a question. Then proceed to your next grocery store item. Make sure for each item that you plan on purchasing that you’re adding the offer to your app.
4. Once you purchase all of your items, make sure that you save your receipt this is important if you lose your receipt you won’t be able to get your cash back. Open the app click the Redeem button at the bottom of the app. Click allow access to photos. Take a picture of your receipt. If it’s a long receipt make sure you take multiple photos. For certain items they may ask you to scan the actual bar-code (annoying I know). Once you submit your receipt you wait to see which items they take and how much you’ve received in cash back.
5. You will get an email letting you know how much cash back you’ll be receiving on top of your $10.00 welcome bonus. The only catch is you must reach the $20 cash amount in order to get cash back. But since you go food shopping weekly it should be easy to reach that threshold.
6. Once you reach $20 you can use that money however you want. They will send the money to you through paypal.

Side-note this tea wasn’t in the ibotta app offers, but it is just my favorite tea in the world If you watched the video you can see how much I love it, if you love apples and cinnamon you will love this tea. I drink a cup a night time and it taste and smells so yummy. I paid $3.29 for a box of 20 teas which runs out really fast since I drink a cup every day but I just found out Amazon has a deal 6 boxes of 20 for only $14.94.
