Looking to make some extra cash or score some free items next time you hit the grocery store?
The app Ibotta allows you to get cash back rewards and payments for your everyday purchases! The company has partnered with more than 1,500 brands and retailers, including national chains like Walmart, Walgreens, and Target. This makes it convenient and easy to get money back for dozens of items you can find at several stores across the country. In fact, Ibotta has paid out over $860 million in cash rewards since it started back in 2012.
One thing to note is sometimes everyone does not have the same offer available at the same time or at all even! So if your deal-finding friend has an Ibotta offer for a free bag of Lay’s Potato Chips, and you don’t, don’t get discouraged! Often they will release these offers in “batches” and chances are you will have it in a few days! Also if it’s a super hot freebie offer, double-check the expiration, as the supplies are limited and they change the expiration or expire the offer, if it’s close to or has been exhausted.
