Earn Money Shopping

February is the month of love. More than one person loves a good deal. I’ve got a pretty good deal I would like to share with you. There will be more money savings tips in the future. I’ve spent the past six months trying out the best places and apps to score a good deal. One of my favorites is iBotta. My friend Jennifer told me about it. At first glance, it appears to be a lot of work. But this app isn’t virtual currency like some. This is real money you can flip into a $25 gift card to several merchants. How do you get this free money?


Make your grocery list. There are a variety of grocers (and retailers of apparel, automotive, and even pet stores) that participate in this nifty deal. After you make your list, check out the rebates offered on ibotta. Most recently, I purchased Folgers Peefect Measures. It was for sale at WalMart for $3.88 with a $1.50 coupon on an 8.39 ounce container. Ibotta had a $2.00 rebate. I scanned in the bar code from the coffee and the receipt from WalMart. That was the biggest score, but my total savings on that excursion was $7.75

Additionally, I only paid $0.38 for a can of coffee. That’s the kind of savings every family likes. When my ibotta account reaches $25.00, I exchange that for an Amazon gift card of the same amount. There are 7 other companies that participate in the gift card program. Or you have the option of having the funds deposited into your PayPal account. Why am I sharing this? What’s in it for me? What’s in it for you?


Several things actually. You get to be on my team. There are team goals with a monetary reward. In order to be on my team, you need to make sure you sign up using my unique code which I will provide at the end of this article. You have to log into a mobile device that has never been associated with ibotta. You also need to verify your first rebate. That means go shopping.

Are you a receipt hoarder? Is your purse loaded with receipts from Dollar General? Dig them out and get them flat. If any of your receipts are within the past 7 days of signing up, you can claim a rebate. What do I get for referring you? Not a thing. You get to start with $10.00. However, if you actually join my team by participating in the rebates, I’ll earn $5.00. So there is a benefit to me. At the same time, you’ll get your own unique code to build your own team.

Please join my team. Happy Shopping.





I stay at home to care for my 81 year old father in law and my permanent roommate (read: hubby). We enjoy all kinds of activities, together and apart (I'm sure you know how this goes..) My interests are varied and I love learning new things. I am a self declared beauty product junkie simply because I refuse to look any older than 29. My father in law and I grow 8 different berries on our property but would love to expand our garden in the future. We adore kitchen gadgets, aromatherapy, crafting and anything DIY. He is a retired artist, my husband is retired USMC and into all things survivalist (I mean, the zombie apocalypse COULD happen y'all) and I am in charge of everything the men would forget about.
