Get Cash Back on Your Groceries Through Ibotta.

When you're looking to save money, getting the most for your cash is a must. One way I've learned to maximize my money at the grocery store is to use Ibotta. So let's get down to the details of what this site does. Right now is a great time to get started as it will give you $10 for using a referral link to sign up.

What it does: ibotta has a good selection of redeemable products, and is probably the easiest of this type of app to get started with. Rebate categories in the app (required) range from groceries to flights. I have only used it for groceries, but if you shop at stores with more expensive items, the instant rebates can be higher. ($5+)

How to redeem:
Find the product you’d like and redeem the rebate in-app by either: learning a fact, watching a video, taking a poll, or looking at a recipe (all directly from the app, ~5-20 seconds).
Buy the product at any supported store.
Scan the product barcode and take a picture of your receipt. It's really that simple. I find that it is easiest to do this as soon as I get home, so that I don't forget. This app works for me at all of the big box stores, but not always at specialty foods stores. Any brand items can mean huge savings, but don't generally qualify you for bonuses. 

Other ways to earn: Shopping online by first going through the ibotta website (to be honest though, I’ve always found that Swagbucks and Ebates give much better percentages for cash back). 

You can also invite Facebook friends to be part of your “team.” The more team members you have the easier it can be to unlock bonuses(if your friends are already on Ibotta, it will connect you to them, and you will help each other with bonuses), which is the last facet of earning on ibotta (signing up does not in any way put us on a team, they are for when you invite your FB friends only). Bonuses are simply things like “buy vegetables twice in a month for an extra $1” or “Get an extra $10 to your account when your team’s total savings in a month reaches $40, or redeem 5 rebates this month, and your team redeems $20 total.” There are multiple levels to this, so the more you do with this app, the more you can get back

Payout: $20 minimum on Paypal  for cash, or $10 for giftcards for anything from Amazon to iTunes.
