Saving money and couponing in this day in age is definitely at least half digital! There are so many apps out there to increase your savings. Over the next few weeks we will be sharing our favorites!
One app that we both love is Ibotta. This is a rebate app that works at multiple stores. The rebates rotate, but essentially, you make an account with your Facebook and it will automatically puts you on a “team” of your friends.
Then, you shop the listed stores and buy the items there are rebates for. When you get home, you verify the rebates by scanning the barcode and uploading an image of your receipt. It is that simple.
Within a few hours you are credited the amount of the rebate! It accumulates in a bank and when you hit $20 you can cash out either via a gift card or directly into a PayPal account.
Every month there are team bonuses where you’ll get extra savings for redeeming a certain number of rebates and money value within your team. Additionally, some brands have bonuses where you can earn an extra $1 or $2 for completing them!
What we love about Ibotta is that it is not just grocery stores, there is also rebates for retail stores too. For example, the craft store Joann’s (and you know we love our craft stores!) occasionally pops up as a rebate!
Since this is money already spent, you can use this money as a savings plan. Emily was putting all her savings into Madeline’s college fund, but they recently decided they want to take a family trip to Disney. She saves up to buy Disney gift cards from Target where she also saves an additional 5% with her red card! Sherrie and Matt put their savings towards paying down their student loan debt. Every little bit helps!
Want to get started? Join our teams! Either use this link or this one to create your own account and start saving! FYM Emily has saved $434.10 with this app alone in the last two years and Sherrie has saved $107.10 over the last 6 months! What are you waiting for?!
