It's no secret, I love saving money. From Ebates to Ibotta, these apps and websites that let me get cash back on stuff I'm buying are the bees knees. (read more)
HOW TO REDEEM IBOTTA CASH
First off, this post isn't giving you the total low down on Ibotta. I did write a detailed post about it though. So, if you're trying to figure out how to redeem Ibotta receipt once you've shopped and redeemed your Ibotta deals, go check out my original Ibotta post.
If you're looking for other awesome apps like Ibotta, be sure to read my post about Ebates, it's another great way to get money back. I'm over $550 back at the time of this posting. (woo hoo!)
Alright, let's talk about how to redeem from Ibotta, how to redeem in Ibotta, how to redeem Ibotta money, how to redeem with Ibotta, and how to redeem YOUR Ibotta money.
No matter what you want to call it, it's all the same thing. You shopped, you got rewarded, you built your rewards up to the $20.00, and now you get to decide where your cash goes.
Let's talk options, because you've got a lot of options. From Paypal to about a billion different gift cards. How do you redeem Ibotta rewards?
HOW DO YOU REDEEM IBOTTA REWARDS?
The first thing you need to do is make sure you've got at least $20.00 in your Ibotta account. You'll know when you've reached this threshold because your "Redeem Cash" button will light up green.
Tapping that button will open the menu that lets you choose how you want to redeem your Ibotta rewards.
The first thing you'll see is an option to go about linking Ibotta to Paypal, or linking Ibotta to Venmo.
You do need $20 for either of these options, but once you decide, it's pretty straightforward. Just tap on either the Venmo or Paypal option, and this screen will appear, letting you know that a confirmation email has been sent to you. Once you get the email, you'll be walked through the process. It's super simple.
Select your choice; you'll see this screen, and you'll get an email.
Once you verify your account, you'll need to close and reopen the Ibotta app, then select Paypal or Venmo again. At this point, you'll get another screen asking you to verify your phone number.
Once you verify your number, Ibotta will send you a code you'll need to enter into your phone, just to be completely secure.
Once that's done, you'll get another confirmation, and you're ready to link Ibotta to Paypal or Venmo. The funds will transfer directly into your account, and from there you can do whatever you want with them, the possibilities are endless!
What if you don't want your Ibotta rewards to go into your Paypal or Venmo? What if you want a gift card? Let's talk about that.
REDEEMING IBOTTA GIFT CARDS
The Ibotta gift card list is extensive, and I'll show you pictures of all of the Ibotta gift card options, but first, let's talk about the Ibotta gift card bonus.
As you can see, when I logged into Ibotta today to look at my Ibotta gift card options, a little notice popped up on the top of my screen that told me there was an Ibotta gift card bonus available if I chose to get an Ibotta iTunes gift card.
Basically, I redeem $20 and get an extra $3. This is great if you're someone who uses iTunes a lot, and is very similar to what Ebates does sometimes when it's time to redeem your Ebates cash back.
If you want to get that extra $3.00, go ahead and tap the iTunes gift card icon.
Different stores have different minimums for their gift cards. iTunes is $20, and you can get gift cards in increments of $20 or $25. Just pick whichever you want. Ibotta will then email you a gift card code that you can redeem whenever you want.
IBOTTA GIFT CARD OPTIONS
From an Ibotta Amazon gift card to an Ibotta Walmart gift card, Ibotta has got tons for you to choose from. Here is the whole list (as of the time of posting), but keep an eye out because more are added on a regular basis, and the bonuses change.
You can scroll through the pictures and pick the one that's best for you.
Be sure to note the MINIMUM amount listed at the bottom of each card. Some are $20, but some are $25, so make sure you have enough before you try to redeem a particular card.
Now that you know how to redeem your Ibotta rewards, let's talk about the Ibotta welcome bonus, because that's a slightly different animal.
HOW TO REDEEM IBOTTA WELCOME BONUS
If you were looking for how to redeem Ibotta 10 dollars, how to redeem Ibotta bonus, how to redeem Ibotta welcome bonus, how to redeem Ibotta $20 welcome bonus, or how to redeem Ibotta $10 welcome bonus, this is your section.
One of the great things Ibotta does for new users is give them a welcome bonus when they redeem a certain number of rebates within their first seven days of signing up.
So, when you sign up for Ibotta, make sure you get to the store that week. You don't want that $10, $20, or whatever it is to slip out of your fingers.
For me, I had to redeem $5 worth of rewards before my Ibotta welcome bonus would kick in. That was not a problem at all since Ibotta has so many things that I am already going to buy. All it took was one trip to Walmart and I was getting not only my Ibotta welcome bonus, but also the other $17 and change I'd earned, bringing my cash back total to almost $40. Nice!
Ibotta will send you emails when you're getting close to time expiring on your bonus, so just make that grocery list, check it twice, and then go to the store and get a nice reward.
You'll get a notice when your bonus has kicked in, like this:
Before you hit the bonus you will see a red line indicating how far you have to go before you hit the bonus. As long as that red line is on your screen, you can still get the bonus. After a week, however, if you haven't gotten it, that welcome bonus is gone for good.
So again, make sure you make that grocery list and go shopping soon after you sign up for Ibotta.
IBOTTA REFERRAL CODE
Your welcome bonus might be a one time thing, but don't forget that your Ibotta referral code is forever!
Head into your account, copy and paste that code in your notes, and be sure to send it to your friends when you're done telling them how much money you've saved with Ibotta.
It doesn't cost them anything, and you get $5 once they start saving. It's a win/win!
And remember, you've got to sign up with Ibotta somehow, so feel free to use my code. It's totally free.
Enjoy that money savings!
