Over the past few months, I’ve been saving a ton of money by couponing at CVS. I use CVS’s Extra Bucks rewards program, cut coupons out of my weekly circulars and print online coupons. I also found Ibotta, a new app that I can use – quickly and easily – on top of everything else for more savings!
The Ibotta app is free and I have it on my iPhone so it is always accessible. Before I shop, I check all of the offers available and choose what I plan to buy. Ibotta works at over 35 retailers nationwide including CVS, Target, ShopRite, Stop & Shop, Walgreens and even 7-11. After shopping, I take a picture of my receipt with my iPhone and upload it and scan the barcodes of the items I bought – all through the Ibotta app (this process takes about 5 minutes). The past few times I’ve used it, I’ve received notification that they’ve sent my money to my Paypal account within about an hour (you can also choose to donate your savings to a school).
As you use Ibotta, the discounts offered to you become more personalized. Each discount is offered for only a certain amount of time, so be sure to check the app regularly.
You’ll also get a referral link and Ibotta will pay you $1 for every person you refer! You can post the link to Facebook or Twitter or send through e-mail directly from the Ibotta app. If you don’t have this app yet, you can download it from the App Store and register here!
