    Confused do I take a picture of receipt,then how do you get your money if that’s what you choose. After picture what do I do?

  • Suzanne Elicker

    I’m confused as to uploading a receipt…so you have to shop right away or can you do surveys and stuff and save up funds to shop

  • Grammy

    If I go to the store and buy a item, get home and realize it has a ibotta rebate, can I then select the rebate offer or do I have to do that before the purchase?

  • tina

    Soooooo im confused, how does this work? I buy items on the screen per store, scan the item im going to buy then scan the receipt??? where do I scan in my receipt?

  • jane pennington

    can you do this with an tablet

    • FT Mommas

      This is an app, so I believe it should work on a tablet. Check your app store to download it.

  • Diana Santoni-Bell

    Does my receipt need to show just the Ibotta items or can I just do my regular shopping and take a picture of my entire receipt? I’m so lost.

  • Mary

    It says i have pending $104.50 coz ive been watching videos posting it in twitter b facebook? How do i redeem that pending money coz i dont see it in my current earnings. How does it work?

    • Anonymous

      Did you buy the products you watched videos on? If you have not – then I believe you cant get any of the money until you snap a pic of the reciept and take a pic of the item to see if it matched the offer and submit

  • heidi

    help… how do i get this friend referral??

  • Sreoshi

    So do I have to pay any money and my second question is that do they add the money in your account like iTunes or AppStore. I had another question which is how do u earn the money so u can put it in your account or redeem it? Please

  • Melanie

    Sounds a bit like Savings Star, except you don’t need an iPod to use Savings Star and you don’t have to do anything with the receipts. You just put all your savings card numbers for each store into the website and choose which of the current “coupons” you’re most likely to use, then once you buy the item using your savings card the rebate amount is automatically added to your Savings Star account. They do have an app, but you can also use it through the website.

    • MountainMiss

      I was going to suggest the same thing– I love SavingStar!

  • Lynne

    Things were going great with this app, but it all of a sudden won’t let me post to Facebook. I’ve reloaded it, confirmed that it is Facebook enabled in the setting of both apps and still nothing. Have emailed customer service. We’ll see if they are able to solve the issue. LOVE the app though – easy to use and a great earnings opportunity!

    • Matt

      I have the same problem. Did you find a solution?

  • Laura

    Downloaded it right away! I was on my way to wm and thought I would try it. Worked great earned my $1 with my purchase but no $5 new user bonus!!!

    • Laura

      You will not receive $5 unless you download the app from a friend referral. I emailed cs

    Bummer… another deal I can’t do because I don’t have a smart phone. There’s no way of doing this from your computer, is there?

    • Jennifer Lauren

      I don’t have a smart phone either because the monthly cost would throw our family way over budget. We do have an ipod though and can basically use any apps an iphone is capable of. It is basically like having all the perks of the iphone without the monthly bill. I am going to try the app out on our ipod and see if it will work that way. I have a feeling it will. Maybe a cheaper solution to your problem than buying an iphone +plan?

        Will this work with an ipad mini?

        • Jean

          will it work with the kindles?

        • Anonymous

          It works with my ipad.

      • Anonymous

        I’m guessing your ipod must have a camera? I do not have a smart phone either and was going to try your ipod suggestion but as I looked over the app it seems you need to be able to take a picture of the reciept. My ipod does not have a camera.

  • tonya

    Can you use manufacturer coupons with it like you can savingstar?

    • Leslie
