If you have a smart phone and you aren’t getting cash back for grocery shopping, you’re really missing out! On cash! C-A-S-H!! Yes, you can get paid to buy groceries.
Yes, I know it may sound fishy, but you can get cash back for buying groceries. It isn’t a credit card type scheme either. No, iBotta is a cash back app.
It works in 3 simple steps:
- Go shopping
- Click on the app which rebates you’d like to redeem from your shopping trip
- Scan your receipt with your cell phone camera
Then just wait. Your cash back will be in your account shortly. It usually takes my rebates about a day to go through. I like to bank up a good amount before withdrawing to my Paypal account.
There are rebates for all sorts of things. Which for a frugally minded person, you can easily see how this handy little app can really maximize savings. Most recently I redeemed 20 cents for milk, 20 cents for bread, 50 cents for granola bars, 20 cents for cheese etc. These are things I actually needed, so why not get the cost down a little more?
Plus, you can use coupons in addition to the app! So the granola bars I purchased were $1.99 at Giant Eagle, I used a $.75 off coupon which doubled to be a $1.50 coupon then I redeemed for 50 cents back from iBotta. So I paid 50 cents for the box but got back 50 cents within 24 hours. That, friends, would be a deal.
