Ibotta is another app that offers you the option to get cash back on your in-person and online purchases. Similar to the others, you’ll need to sign up for a free account and download the app or browser extension to earn money.
Once that’s done, you have three ways you can earn cash back: Upload your receipt to the app when you purchase eligible items, link a store loyalty card before you shop to get access to special offers.
Make purchases at eligible stores via the ibotta app or website. Users can also earn extra cash back by purchasing gift cards or referring friends to the app.
One drawback to ibotta is that you’ll have to complete tasks within the app to access its money-saving tools. It’s not overly time consuming, but could be a hindrance depending on how much free time you have.
You’ll also have to upload receipts manually, and there are only about 300 eligible retailers. However, you can get cash deposited directly into your ibotta account, which you can then withdraw—no waiting on checks.
