Are you an Ibotta first-timer? We’re here to help you discover all the different ways you can earn cash back.

Did you know that Ibotta is one of the top-used shopping apps in the United States, according to App Annie (the standard for data in the App industry)? If you are wondering why here are three reasons to consider giving our rewarded shopping app a try.

1. You can get cash back every time you shop for groceries.

One of our most popular ways to earn cash back with Ibotta is by uploading receipts from purchases made at the store. There are always 100’s of offers available at major retailers across the United States, including Walmart, Target, Whole Foods, Kroger, Safeway, and Costco, so no matter where you find yourself stocking up on dinner supplies, Ibotta has you covered.

Here’s how: Select your grocery store and add offers you’d like to redeem by selecting the blue plus sign and completing a short activity. Then, shop for qualifying items, complete your purchase, and select the “Redeem” option from the main menu. Finally, snap a photo of your receipt and wait for cash back – your account will be credited in 24 hours or less!

2. We help you live a little more green by redeeming with a loyalty account.

You can now go paperless with Ibotta! We’ve partnered with several retailers, including Safeway, Publix, and Food Lion, to offer you the ability to link your store loyalty account to the Ibotta app. This means that redeeming offers is even easier – you can earn cash back without having to scan any receipts.

Here’s How: Visit a qualifying retailer’s gallery, then select the Connect [Retailer] Card option at the bottom of your screen. This will prompt you to connect your unique store loyalty account to your Ibotta account. Once you’ve linked your loyalty account, add offers in the Ibotta app prior to shopping. Then, just shop and purchase qualifying items and automatically earn cash back within 24 hours – no receipt required.

3. You can make extra money every time you shop online.

Yup, you heard that right. Whether you’re booking a hotel room or stocking up on home essentials, you can earn cash back. We’ve partnered with some of the top online brands and retailers, including Amazon,,, Groupon, Sephora,, and more!
