I’ve literally had this app for 2 days and my account is locked...
I haven’t used it in a while because it takes too long to accumulate money. Also I can’t link to the My Hannaford Rewards number so it’s useless because most of my shopping is at Hannaford and they give me 2% back for all Hannaford brand products and quarterly purchases gets me money off a future shopping trip. Along with Fetch Rewards I get money off gift cards that will most likely be used to renew my Amazon prime. Between Fetch Rewards, some survey sites that offer Amazon rewards and some Amazon gift cards accumulated in other ways through out the year, my next renewal should be free or pretty cheap.
I’ve heard Ibotta did away with the requirement to select items before you shop. Now do away with tying loyalty cards to the app and maybe I’d use it more. I have issues with lost loyalty cards in the past and trying to tie the new numbers to apps like this and it’s just too hard to make it worth it anymore.

I would really appreciate it if you brought Uber back. Everything else is good.
Rebates & App 3/5
Takes me a long time to accumulate money. Biggest complaint is the app must have issues. Multiple times I go look for rebates and app will not open. Now, this is the 4th day it will not open. Over a week now the app will not open.
Just wanted to show you my appreciation. Ibotta is awesome with showing that they truly care for ones who are loyal ibotta users as myself. Thanks for everything and for always fixing issues. Thanks!
Just wanted to tell you my appreciation for everything Ibotta does and to fix things because it shows how much you care for the ones who are loyal Ibotta users. Thank you!

I thought I loved this app. It was a great way to get cash back on items I wanted to try and others I purchased regularly. Last week I received an email that my account had been temporarily suspended - I wrote to customer service and was told that my account was being deleted because I returned items I received credit for. I asked for specifics as I've never done this and explained I was happy to provide any proof they needed (photos of items, receipts, etc) to prove i still had everything. I got a generic response stating they stand by their decision. I had at least $150 on my account owed to me at the time of the deletion. Since I've never returned any items, they refuse to give any examples of this supposed offense, and would not allow me to prove this, I can only view this whole thing as a scam. It's really sad that companies trust this app to provide consumers with cash back incentives to purchase items and then keep the money for themselves claiming unfounded violations of their terms. I wouldn't waste my time with this app, but if you do, make sure you claim your cash back AS SOON as you can so they can't steal it from you when your amount gets high enough for them to decide to close your account.
Great app! 5/5
I have had a very good experience with Ibotta. It’s easy to earn cash back and it provides me with opportunities to try new brands and products. I highly recommend this app. A lot of my friends use the app as well and we are always talking about Ibotta and informing each other or new discounts and rebates.
I am confused about just one thing. When my friends and I talk about rebates on the app, we notice that sometimes some cash back items are only available to one person and not the other. Sometimes we have a lot of different products available to each person. I also find that there are many more options available on the website than on the app. And some of my friends get $0.50 for a scanned receipt and i only get $0.25. Is there a reason for this or am I missing something?
With that being said, this is still the best cash back app out there. Thank you for being awesome!
By unhappy ibotta former nember
Had saved up 23 dollars in my account tried to xter it to my paypal account that I’ve had for years. It failed. When I contacted customer service they accused me of submitting fraudulent receipts and deactivated my account...for life. Don’t waste your time terrible customer service
So so 3/5
He concept of this app is great and it functions beautifully. I am happy they took away the need to scan the products before the receipt because that was super annoying. I buy a lot of generic so of course I wish they would add more any brand products. I have found that when you get money back on any brand (including generic) sometimes the app doesn’t register it. I purchased target brand diapers and there was diapers of any brand on here but i didn’t get the benefit because the app said it didn’t apply, which it should have. Also, if you can redeem a product from any store, it should mean any store. My local supermarket (Butera) is not on the app so I can’t get anyyyy money back with those trips. I also wish you could scan a receipt and get the money back without going through it with a fine tooth comb. Hopefully that will change!
Love this app 5/5
Yea I’m like you, I’m a skeptic of anything til I use it for myself. Think of it this way, you have absolutely nothing to lose by using this app. You’re already gonna shop, why not get a little gift for it? :) Hey, I just earned cash back on my CVS Pharmacy purchase using app. Of course it’s not a lot but $.25 here and $.45 there adds up. Check it out for yourself and earn cash rewards at tons of other mobile apps and stores. Remember to sign up with my referral code: iqewtvp. You’ll get $10 and I’ll get $5.
First time user 5/5
By firecracker cat
First time using this still takes a little getting used to but overall pretty well
Doesn’t reward you for half the crap 1/5
By nu ki
I buy certain brands just to get the cash back and it’ll say the barcode isn’t right even after I scanned it at the store to confirm that it is. I buy the stuff only for it to not scan at home and they’re customer service is impossible to get any issue resolved.
Ibotta is mandatory 5/5
You can earn fairly quickly with ibotta I started on March 1st and have already earned over 20 dollars just by making my already necessary purchases! Ibotta is now a part of my everyday life, there’s always something you can get cash back for. So within a 6 week period I have earned 20 plus bucks. That’s a win! Thanks IBOTTA I encourage everyone to join it’s money just sitting on the table!
Was good but 1/5
I used this app for a long time and enjoyed the cash rewards...then the update happened. First off, I lost my acrid cash of 16.00 (mind you cash out is only available at 20.00) and I contacted customer service and still had to start over at zero. I thought okay that ticked me off a little bit but I can rebuild. Then I found that it was so much harder to build the rewards. All of these package deals are frustrating. Suddenly I had to spend way more in products I didn’t want to get my rewards. Oh sure, there are single items available that I’m not interested in at all, that I could stock up on but no. I think I’ll just stop using this app and save my time. Not worth it. Sad. Was good at one time.
Not adding up 3/5
Lately I purchase items that was on the list but didn’t receive credit only for the receipt and I even Scan bar code and it was clear (✅) but didn’t receive the credit for items this have happened couple of times this a pretty good app to have but need to credit where credit is due
Great app but...... 4/5
This is a great app and I have already received a $50 gift card for Walmart but.....
Unfortunately they do not support Walmart pay which means I can’t use my Walmart pay app and need to get a printed receipt. Hopefully they will soon support Walmart pay in this app.
Very Glitchy 1/5
App works half of the time. Please fix all the bugs
Best app for cash back 5/5
One of the best and genuine app to give you cash back.
Easy way to get extra money 5/5
This app is great, say you just went to the store and got a lot of stuff, match some stuff take a picture and boom you got money, already made 22$ from it!
App issues 2/5
I joined about two years ago and loved it ! I was stacking up the rebates. The app was very user friendly and easy with rarely any issues. Ever since the updated their app to this new one I have had problems after problems. It’s confusing and annoying to find rebates and the app is constantly freezing and doing funky things. This app went from great to crap.
Hannaford is broken in app... 1/5
I am having issues with hannaford - my go to grocer - they no longer seem to be supported. They dont show up in my favorites lists but i can add them. But when I go to browse their offers, i get a white screen. This is maddening because i dont have many other places for grocery items, eapecially in my town. I want to continue to use this app. Please fix!!!!!
Dishonest and skewed product feedback 2/5
I lowered my score to 2 stars not because the cash back amounts are disappointing. On the contrary, I think the cash back on the majority of items is good. What I find issue with is the misleading research questions asked on certain products. I was given a multiple choice question on sliced bacon and I chose A, nope. Incorrect. I tried B, nope. I tried C, nope. It made me choose D, all of the above before allowing me to claim the rebate. That’s pretty shady of the developers. On another question it asked me which beverage I was replacing before allowing me to claim the cash back. Pretty much makes you lie in order to get the cash back. This is why I don’t believe in polls. They are so misleading.
I love this App!!! 5/5
By Andrea Nothdurft
Amazing rewards and rebates!!! I highly recommend this app to everyone!!! Not to mention their customer support is outstanding! They gave me feedback on an issue I had within seconds! Thank you IBotta and staff! 🤗
Increased purchases for bonuses 4/5
I absolutely LOVE ibotta! I use it alll the time. Which is why it is frustrating to me that the amount of things I have to purchase to receive the bonuses keeps increasing. For an example, last month I had to do 13 rebates to get the stackable bonuses. Where my mom, who rarely uses it, only had to purchase 3 to get the same amount of rebates. Why?!?! It is making me think I should use less so that I can get better offers :(
Have only received one $5 friend referral bonus... 4/5
By annoyed frequent Maine flyer
I love Ibotta, I have earned over $200 using it. But I have had friends join using my referral code, have them on my team and they have been using the app and are earning but I have only received one $5 bonus for one of them. I reached out to support and they said it may be because they didn’t redeem a “brand” offer and redeemed any offers instead but some friends have redeemed several brand offers and some a couple and I still never received my referral bonus. I also think there should be promo codes for existing users instead of just new users.. other then that this app is a great way to earn extra money! Especially if you have kids and are looking for ways to save and earn $$
Putting my giant eagle number in 2/5
I would just like to put my giant eagle store
card in so I can start using this app! And no one seems to care.
Your screen won’t take s picture of it and I try to put the numbers in and that doesn’t work either. Why can’t someone help me..
It’s amazing you want “ customers” but don’t seem to care for me!!!
So frustrating, rarely works 2/5
I’ve loaded this to an Android and an iOS phone. Same issues on both phones. QR codes won’t scan, barcodes won’t scan so I can redeem offers, receipts won’t go through. I buy things, try to get the rebates, and more often than not only the $0.25 rebates are credited. I lose out on so much money I don’t know why I keep trying to make this work.
I looooove the app i just wish you could actually add everything that you normally buy At the store like i got to the store every weekend to get bunch of stuff but like one or two is on my offers
The best 5/5
I have tried a LOT of these cash back apps and I can honestly say Ibotta is my favorite. I have been using it for a little over a year and have saved a lot of money. I love it for the bonuses, the any item/any brand, the multiple redemptions. You just gotta get used to it like everything else in this world lol but definitely recommend ibotta to everybody! THE BEST ♥️
First time trying to scan receipts to redeem and the app won’t let me. Way to go Ibotta. Really making me want to trash your reputation....Should have followed the recommendations of the poor reviews.
Don’t bother 1/5
By Juggs A'Plenty
Downloaded the app, selected my qualifying items from the list, and followed all the instructions to redeem after a shopping trip. When I submitted my purchase I was given instant confirmation that my purchase met the requirements and the dollar value of my savings - a few hours later I was emailed that, not only did my transactions not meet the requirements, but offers (that had six more days showing available) had expired. Bait and switch at its worst.
The camera simply does not work. You get all focused and before you can snap a pic of the receipt, it knocks you out of the app. Have tried all the trouble shooting. iOS 6plus.
They seem to have fixed this with their update. Changing my rating to 5 star!
App Crashes 1/5
My app has not been wanting to load and keeps crashing
(4/10/18) Update: I updated the app and it still does not want to open. I’m getting extremely upset with this app now
Hard to Use - Hard to Earn 1/5
Signed up through a referral, got $10, but in order to cash out had to earn another 10 in less than a month. Then the app itself has a steep learning curve and doesn’t allow you to use your desktop to purchase things on amazon (so you can’t generate a donation on smile.amazon), ultimately this app just became a spam email telling me i was going to lose the $10.
It makes getting anything back a hunt for a coupon which is tiresome and annoying. Simplicity is key and they certainly didn’t lock that down. Hadn’t managed to get a single purchase to work with it after a week of frustration figured deleting it was my best option.
I love Ibotta, is the best app to get cash back. I buy GC every Week.
Bug fixes not fixed 3/5
A lot of people are losing out including myself because I don’t have the time to wait around while to see if your app is going to decide to work! It’s excruciating. For example: I hit redeem and then when I select store it does nothing- it’s frozen. I have reinstalled app, closed app, etc...doesn’t work! This has been going on for a month now. please fix the issues ASAP! I thought Boulder Colorado was on the forefront of technology like a mini Silicon Valley?! please get it together! you guys are making a killing but your app constantly has issues and I’m a long term user!
This app used to be much faster. Now, every time I submit a receipt, I have to hit retry at least 3 times. Just referred my mother-in-law and she is having the same issues.
It’s great when it works 2/5
By I am The IPhone kid
The concept of Ibotta is great but this app is so poorly designed that it freezes and crashes almost every time I try to take pictures of my receipts. It is so frustrating to use and wastes a lot of time.
Let's earn together! 5/5
If you're here, because you're considering downloading this app for the first time, please use my referral code and lets earn together!
Great app but..... 4/5
By Coupon Ace
I use this rebate app all the time and have earned much needed money. I love Ibotta, however, I just discovered a big secret. At first, I thought I was remembering expiration dates incorrectly. Then I discovered something from one tech support person. If a rebate is popular, Ibotta will move up the expiration dates so they can limit the number of people who can do that rebate. I think that this is WRONG. I check the app all the time before I leave my house to shop and sometimes the rebate is gone when it’s time to redeem my receipt. It’s not fair and a shady practice. At least, Checkout 51 is honest about when they run out of rebates. Despite the flaws, especially since nothing is perfect, I still love and use the app to make ends meet!
Earnings revoked after nonuse 1/5
If you don’t use this app for 12 months, they start to take $3.99 out of your account for each additional month of nonuse. That is a horrific way of trying to bring back customers. Go ahead and take my earnings. Your app will never go on my phone again and I will be sure to never recommend it to anyone.
Great App. Could be better 4/5
I love using Ibotta. I use it every time I shop. I love earning the rebates, even if they are only a few cents because everything adds up.
However, there are couple of things the developers need to do differently. I really hope they read the feedback because I’m sure I’m not the only customer that finds these things inconvenient and annoying. 1) The app is always loading (sometimes this takes awhile), 2) (this is what I find most annoying) Ibotta advertises that a store chain sells a certain item. I go to the store to buy the item and get the rebate, only to find that the store does not sell said item. This has happened MANY times. This is not good promoting. The store loses my business because the item I came there to buy is not sold there. In some cases I have checked to see if the store sells the item at other locations or online and found that they don’t sell it at all. If it is advertised on Ibotta that the a store sells an item, I should be able to buy it at said store. If the store sells the item but not in my general area, I should be able to use the Ibotta app to find out which stores do or do not have the item in stock. If no stores in my area sell the item and it is not sold online, it should not appear in my list of available rebates. 3) Also, the items need to be specific to each store. For example, Dollar Tree does not sell many of the items that are sold at Food Lion because they only sell items that are $1 or less. Yet, according to the Ibotta app, I can buy all kinds of things at Dollar Tree that cost more than $1. Dollar Tree is a dollar store, not a grocery store. Although it does sell some grocery items, it does not sell many of the same items I can get at a grocery store. According to Ibotta, the dollar stores sell produce. I have never been to a dollar store that has a produce section. 4) I cannot access the app when outside of the US. This is ridiculous. All of my other apps work regardless of what country I am in. I understand that I cannot access the in store rebates, but there is no reason why I cannot buy things online from US retailers using Ibotta when I outside the US.
These are the complaints that I have. I hope that the developers will take them into consideration.
I do recommend the app though. I have tried several cash rebate apps and this is the best one. It may have it’s flaws, but it’s definitely worth a try.
P.S. I will change the my rating to 5 stars if the developers make my suggested changes.
I m rich bruh
By Balls city
This app asks SO many personal questions. Why would this information be useful, I have no idea and will not be finding out. Are you kidding me?! Why do you need to know how many adults are in my household? Why do you need to know what “ethnicity I relate with” ***data mining***
By Cpf Stifler
That’s the amount of money I’ve earned on the ibotta app in a little over a year. I use it for everything including online shopping. This is hands down the best savings app in the iPhone store
