As promised in the Mission 2 post I am gong to tell you about my obsession with ibotta and its awesome money stretching ability!
I LOVE IBOTTA!!! Ok, let me get myself together and just tell you about the app.
The items found on ibotta are the things that you use everyday and more! There are cash rebates on everything from milk and bread, to cleaning products, to clothing and shoes to electronics! And it works at all of your favorite stores and even some restaurants. Just for example, Target, WalMart, Safeway, Best Buy, Macy's, Applebee's and even the liquor store! Everybody buys and uses at least two items listed in the ibotta app! After, I realized this and actually got started redeeming rebates I didn't know why I hadn't started sooner. Oh yes I do know why, because I don't listen just like I didn't listen at first about Ebates!
I signed up on January 8, 2016 and I opened the ibotta app on my phone for the first time the second week of February 2016. Here it is March 15, 2016 and I have gotten $186.75 in cash back and bonuses!!! I actually remember the first rebate I redeemed it was a 1L Deer Park Sparkling Water, at Giant Food Store. The water was on the shelf for regular price $1.00 and ibotta was offering a .50 cent rebate, but wait there's more.... since it was going to be my first time redeeming a rebate ibotta was going to give me .50 cents in cash back and a $10.00 bonus!!! Let me tell you I had to see it to believe it! I bought the sparkling water for $1.00 went to the car opened the ibotta app and clicked verify purchase. Then I clicked on the Giant Food Store link found the water in the list, scanned the water and then it prompted me to take a pic of my receipt. OK, I have to admit the process took a little getting used to but what happened next made it alllll worth it! About 5 minutes after I clicked done a congratulations alert came through my phone. And just like ibotta promised I received $10.50 for redeeming my first rebate!! I spent $1.00 on that water and verified my purchase in about 45 seconds and got back $10.50!! If that isn't the perfect picture of making a dollar out of 15 cents I don't know what is... I mean you do the math!
I was hype!!! I had to tell people about this gem, if I didn't, what kind of friend would I be? So I told my first friend and she signed up for ibotta using the link I sent her and she redeemed her first rebate and 5 minutes later $1.00 in cash back was in her ibotta account along with a $10.00 bonus!!! And to top it off ibotta was kind enough to also put $5.00 in my account for telling my friend about them! I immediately felt my money getting long and lean like it had been practicing yoga for years! If any of you reading this has any intention on making the most out of the money you have, you have to download ibotta!
