Have you heard about Ibotta yet?  It has been available for iPhone users for a little while. Ibotta is a new coupon tool that can be accessed from an iPhone, iPad or Android device. We have just started using it here in the So Dough Savvy family because Android phone users were recently included – yippie!!  Now I can tell you all about it firsthand.

You will be seeing Ibotta deals added to our weekly deals and coupon matchups when available.  It’s a super easy way to save more dough at your favorite stores!

Even better, Ibotta is currently offering a sweet $5 bonus just for signing up and redeeming your first offer!

To get started with Ibotta:

  • Simply sign up, and then download the app to your phone.
  • Before heading to the store, choose the product(s) you would like a coupon for and click on Earn $.
  • Select each of the round buttons below the coupon to add value to your final coupon. The buttons will make you answer a super short question, watch a super short video or something similar.
  • Check the Coupon Database to see if there is also a paper coupon for the same product!
  • Now head to the store – see list below for included stores.

To check to make sure you have the right product in the store:

  • Select the product you want to check from your screen.
  • Hit the bar scan symbol on the top right of your screen.
  • You can then scan the product’s barcode to make sure you have the one included in the coupon.

After purchasing the correct product(s):

  • Hang onto your receipt.
  • Hit “Redeem” in the lower right hand corner of the main screen.
  • Select the store you purchased the products at.
  • Scan the receipt using the instructions provided.  You will need to scan the entire receipt top to bottom.

That’s it!  Once you get the hang of it you will see how easy it truly is!  The best part is that you can use paper manufacturer coupons on top of your Ibotta coupons!!

Your earnings from Ibotta can be transferred securely to your PayPal account once your account reaches $5.00.  Your earnings can also be donated to any school in America if you choose.
