I, the Queen, am not a boring person. Typically, I’m not bored, either.  I can usually find ways to entertain myself to distract me from the boringness of this particularly inactive summer that I’ve been having.

When Eddie was 3 months old and I was going back to work after maternity leave, Cortney was laid off from work. Cort spent his days being a stay at home dad, looking for work, and watching documentaries on Netflix. So many documentaries. And the topic really didn’t matter to him. He would watch films […]

Ibotta is a fun and exciting way to earn cash every time you shop – plus it’s free! It works in over 80 retailers nationwide, and Ibotta users have already earned over 5 million dollars.
What is Ibotta and How Does it Work?
Ibotta is an app for smartphones (Android and iPhone) that contains many different money saving offers for popular products. You can learn facts, watch videos and take one question surveys before purchasing a product to earn cash. Once you have purchased the product, you simply take a picture of your receipt showing your purchase of the item. Ibotta allows you to earn up to $40 cash per shopping trip.
How Do I Get Paid?
Once you’ve redeemed offers totaling $5 or more, Ibotta lets you transfer your earnings directly to your PayPal account or put the money on a gift card .  Choose “Withdraw Cash” from the main menu of the app, then select “Get My Cash” to link Ibotta to your PayPal account.
What Stores are Ibotta Coupons Good At?
Ibotta recently added a bunch of new partners and they are adding more all of the time. Here is a list of a few companies participating in the Ibotta program:
  • Target, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS Pharmacy, RiteAid, Kroger, Safeway, Publix, Stop & Shop, Meijer, Tom Thumb, Dillons, ShopRite, Food 4 Less, CityMarket, WinCo Foods, 7-Eleven, United States Armed Forces Commissary

As for myself how much have  I earned so far

Well everyone I was very skeptical of this app. I didn’t believe I would actually get the cash back and i thought it was strange to get the money you have to tweet about the product, watch a video, learn about the product, or take a survey. Wel endless to say non of these things took more than 5 secs to complete and after I scanned the barcodes of the items i bought I instantly say the money in my paypal account how much did I get last week? $35 thats a small bill lol
If you want to get cash back too heres my personal referral link to JOIN
