Ibotta is one of my go-to apps to coupon these days. The days of cutting coupons should be over for most as it’s too time consuming. The smartphone app lets you earn cashback when you purchase anything from grocery items to electronics to meals.
New on the Ibotta app is a $1 rebate when you take an Uber ride. We use Uber frequently on our travels which saves us from all the hassles of rental cars and fees.
To earn the $1 cash back, download Ibotta (YOU GET $10 to start you off with Referral Code UNCVEUI) AND Uber app, open Ibotta and search for Uber under stores. You’ll then need to click on Uber, which will open your Uber app THROUGH the Ibotta app when you are ready to hail a car.
You’ll need to take your Uber ride within three hours of opening Uber through the Ibotta app to earn your $1. This is only valid for rides in the U.S. You may realize $1 is not a lot, but it adds up when you use Ibotta or Uber a lot. You can also stack this Ibotta $1 and $5 bonus offers with existing Uber Ride Passes and Starwood points earned with the app.
We’ve been trying out this Ibotta app opening it before Uber and it just takes a few seconds out of your booking time for a ride which is worth a $1 each time. With the $10 sign-up you get I already have earned $26 alone using just the Uber incentive and my $10 bonus.
I’m getting free Jetblue and Delta Skymiles per every airport ride in Lyft. Anyone else getting both and double dipping rewards? Looks like the best thing to do is take Lyft to the Airport and Uber anywhere else using the iBotta app each time for a free $1 off. You also get free Starwood/Marriott points per Uber ride.
Once you have earned $20, you can cash out to a PayPal account. To date, I have earned over $100 on Ibotta, well worth it in my opinion!
Ibotta App for More Cashback Offers
Ibotta is easy to use. You simply search the store where you shopped, look for any items that you purchased that have a cash back offer. The money back offers range from between 25 cents to several dollars back. Then you scan the barcodes of the items after you come home from the store and take a picture of your receipt. Your money is usually credited to you within a few minutes.
