I love Ibotta. At first I was skeptical but I needed to find ways to make extra cash so I was like, “why not?!”. It’s really simple to use. You simply create your account, then log in and select some of the places you usually shop. They have tons of offers from May different stores and retailers. Select offers of the items you want to purchase and they will add to your account. If you make a purchase online, start in ibotta to get to the store website. That way you get credit for your purchases. If you go in-store, just scan your receipt into the app. For all the in-store items, you get the credit based on the offers in ibotta for EACH VALID ITEM on your receipt. I made my first $20 my first month. I’ve been a member for around 3 months and So far I’ve made close to $150! No joke. You can cash out to specific gift cards, PayPal, or just use the new “Pay With Ibotta” feature. I usually cash mine out to my PayPal. The only downside I would say I’m having is that my friends are as skeptical as I am, except they are skeptics that won’t give it a shot. So I’ve missed most of my referral bonuses but other than that, it’s great. Speaking of bonuses, they also have different bonuses where you can earn extra cash every month. All in all, it’s really cool and getting money back for things you’re going to buy anyway is the cherry on top. Try it. You will not regret it!
I gave it 3 stars because I only receive the cash back for my purchases about 3 out 5 times. This app used to be really great. But now they are really, really bad for falsely advertising cash back on items just to get you to purchase them. Many, many...many times now I have purchased the EXACT item shown. I always read the full details of each offer to make sure it doesn’t require you to purchase two, or only a certain size, etc. I will even scan the barcode for a match when I’m in the store! Then I get home, scan my receipt and uh oh...”item doesn’t match”. I check my receipt to make sure the cashier did indeed charge me for the item..yep, it’s there. Hmmmm convenient way for them to cash in on successfully pushing you the product without having to actually pay you the money. This past week they even went as far as to go back and take away the credit that I had earned on an item. I received an email stating that they couldn’t match it even though their app successfully matched it to my receipt! It was indeed the correct item. Don’t even bother with trying to contact their care team because you just get the generic “oh we’re sorry but you probably didn't purchase the correct item...please review details of all items before purchasing in the future” type of response...much like their responses to most of these reviews 😒. I hope they do better in the future.
This app was AWESOME at first!! I recommended it to literally anyone that would listen! Even complete strangers that I would see at the checkout. Now, you can’t get a response from the ‘Care’ Team. Even when you show detailed photo proof with the receipt, the UPC & the product front & back; by the time you actually get a response, the receipt is more than a week old & they deny you credit. Then when you bring it to their attention that you submitted it within the allotted timeframe, you get a response stating that you were given credit for the purchase. BUT there is a way to check!! In your ‘My Earnings’ option, you can see if you earned credit; which obviously shows that you NEVER received credit for the purchase!!! The ‘Care’ Team has lost its empathy! The response time used to be very short, now you’re LUCKY if you receive a response in 7 days!!! I’m positive that they will claim that they are bombarded with tons of claims & emails that they are trying to respond to each one. But if they had let us know that when they reached a certain number of users that they would be overwhelmed & not intend on expanding their team member staff; I would have stopped recommending this app when that number was reached! You beg us to share this app, however you apparently don’t care enough to expand your staff enough to handle all of the claims & new members??
I was recommended this app a few years ago and it used to be great. They actually had items I would buy or wanted to try. Now..... I’m lucky if I can use it once every shopping trip (I used to be able to use it every time). That’s not the bad part because I do like that they have rebates for new products just hitting the market. The bad part is having to link a loyalty card. What!?!? So I started doing that. Well now one of the loyalty cards linked never posts my items and I have had to reach out to the care center and wait forever (3-7 days) to be credited and they don’t even know when you have multiple items for redemption. I had to reach back out and let them know after I already listed three items purchased along with the receipt that I was still missing money. I was credited. Fine! It’s getting worse because the app will scan the receipt for items and not recognize others. I like not having to scan all of the barcodes but I don’t mind it if I have to. I have two items pending now because the receipt was rejected and these two items weren’t recognized during the initial receipt scan. Now the receipt has been rejected for those two items I don’t want to have to wait for the care team AGAIN. I’m at the point where all of the hassle isn’t worth it and I will just complete the last $3.00 needed to cash out and delete the app. I’m not wasting my time anymore.
I used to love ibotta. Then, they wouldn’t link my husbands account with my account as being on the same team. They “gave me credit” for him joining but refused to link us. So I’ve been using Ebates for a while unless this offered a better deal at some store. Anyway, most recently, I went on a shopping trip before a big trip we had planned. I shopped in the afternoon, got home, unloaded everything, made the bags up for the kids, decided I would scan the receipt as my husband drove since we were leaving in the middle of the night and I hadn’t slept at ALL, and it wouldn’t accept ANYTHING I purchased even though CLEARLY it was on the receipt. Barcodes were gone because I had thrown out the boxes for our road trip, too cumbersome to take along with 5 kids in the back. So no cash back for that $200 receipt. Now, the second time I’ve tried using this app since the latest update, it’s not accepting actual barcodes and telling me I didn’t purchase things I purchased that are clearly stated on the receipt. Total crap of an app. Not to mention the fact they tell you you’re in a competition but won’t accept your purchases, then they put you on the team that’s last place every time. I will not be using this again! Next time I cash out is the last time I cash out! Don’t waste your time getting this, they will not reward your efforts! Even Checkout 51 is better than this and they’re SLOW. Ebates and SavingStar are the way to go people!
