Was a great app 2/5
This app in the beginning was great. I once had trouble getting a purchase to match, customer service was great, I spoke to a real live person, that spoke English. SADLY, the app now is a major joke. 4-5 times I don’t get credit for something I purchased even though when scanned it matches. Trying to get customer service to reply to an email is just ridiculous and if someone does answer, they don’t know what the hell is going on. I have purchased items through kohl’s and amazon and 5 months later, still pending!! I would look at other options before considering this app.
Slow to load since version 5.60 1/5
Starting with version 5.60, when going to view a retailer’s offers the screen stays blank/white with gray placeholders for where images go for about 10 seconds before everything loads. I thought version 5.62 update would fix the slow loading time since it claims to have “improved loading to make it feel more snappy,” but it does not.
Need to get that fixed ASAP as it’s very annoying.
What’s even more annoying is when going into some Retailer pages it keeps asking to enter/link their membership card to Ibotta account. There needs to be a way to turn that off. Some people don’t have membership cards.
And one more thing, there’s a bug where the save offers under My Offers page will not show up. I sometimes have to completely close app and relaunch it for the disappeared offers to show up again.
Took my money 1/5
I did not use Ibotta for a month or so and had some money in my account. Because I was inactive for the month or two they took my money out of my account.
Haven’t seen any cash back yet 1/5
Downloaded the app, made some purchases and was suppose to get a $20 bonus for purchasing 10+ items... it’s been over a week and haven’t seen any cash back yet! Waiting to hear back from the support team...(which is taking awhile)

LOVE this app 5/5
So I’ve been a user of Ibotta since January of this year and have already earned over $100 just by doing my regular shopping and redeeming cash for items on the list off my receipts, love that there’s many options of gift cards you can redeem and also I LOVE how fast I can send cash to my paypal account and even from there send it to my bank account if need be. I will continue using this app 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Doesn’t work 1/5
No way to actually upload a receipt or if there is they have made it so difficult to work out that you give up.
Very useful app, but some repeated issues 4/5
I’ve come to incorporate iBotta into every shopping trip, and find it easy to use (search function for products and retailers, offers relevant to me). However, I’ve encountered repeated issues when linking PayPal/Venmo accounts and trying to cash out my earnings. App updates always address it, but it has been a slight frustration.
Love ibotta 5/5
Save all my rebates until November and use them for Christmas.
This app works 5/5
Offers a rebate on a lot of common purchases, sometimes a small amount occasionally a dollar or more.you have to “check” which rebates you might be using before scanning receipts within 7 days of purchase. Then you can send the money to PayPal when you reach a certain amount, or request a gift card or check. Easy to use, a little time consuming but worth it, I get about $70 back a year.
You can use my referral code AFBOYSX to get extra bonuses, as a “team” we get extra benefits that change weekly...they also offer rebates for online purchases at a lot of different retailers.
New features? 1/5
5/26: Looks like ibotta installs and runs fine on my ancient Android tablet (running 5.1). Too bad I'd need to lug around my tablet to check deals when I'm shopping to still use the app.
5/2: The "Developer Response" suggests that I clear my cache and try again. Well, ibotta doesn't appear to have the ability to clear its cache (on my iPhone) - are they telling me to clear my browser cache?!? Did they even read what I had written?
They also suggest deleting and reinstalling the app. I did that, and it is still telling me I need to upgrade the app for it to run. (Interestingly, it looks like ibotta doesn't require me to upgrade if I enter the app by clicking on a notification, so I'm hoping to get a notification sometime soon so I can get my $72 out of it before May 6.)
4/24: Nope - Ibotta is back to requiring an upgrade to run.
Past review: It looks like the Ibotta app stopped requiring an update to run - it is currently allowing the existing app to be used now (at least until 5/6, as indicated by the app notification), so I've returned my 5-star review (for now).
Past review: Adding new features - great!
Requiring an upgrade that also requires a later iOS version to use the new features - ok.
Not allowing the current app to be used as-is without the new features - no bueno - I can't upgrade my iOS yet, so bye bye Ibotta :(
FIRST AND LAST TIME I WILL USE ibotta 1/5
By CO Country Girl
HERE ARE MY ISSUES:
1. The referral $10 I received is almost depleted as they DEDUCT from your account for inactivity.
2. I am fighting cancer, so I use Instacart and Walmart Grocery apps for grocery shopping. I just found out that I can’t apply my purchases from these apps towards my ibotta account. In researching the FAQs, I read that TWO YEARS AGO this was an issue which has not been addressed!! This was a total waste of my time!!!!!
I love this app! 5/5
I redeemed close to $300 already!
Great app! 5/5
This app is so easy to earn $$ for just doing every day shopping
By Pl vp
I give Ibotta a 5. I love this app it works really great. You can test scan to see if it is the exact item you need. No guessing this way . I always look at items before I go to the store so I usually get the items listed on Ibotta . Only wish they had less liquor and more food items .
Problems with app 1/5
By Lives near Disney World
I type in barcode since app doesn't know how to read receipts sometimes. Says when scanning inncorect barcode when it is exactly what the barcode is for product. If I don't get the Memorial Day bonus for getting 5 offers and your app refuses to accept last item. I will be contacting my lawyer to sue for scamming me. Beware this app is very innaccurate sometimes especially when you do a couple receipts. I want my $5.00 bonus or I will come back and give 1 star review and get more people to give 1 or 2 star reviews so your overall rating comes down.
Won’t give cash back 1/5
Waste of time and money, I’d purchase items I normally wouldn’t because of the coupons. When it came time to redeem the cash back they wouldn’t because my number ON MY CELL FROM WHICH THE APP WAS DOWNLOADED FROM, already had an account associated to it.
Trust me, don’t waste your time.
Can’t cash out! 3/5
By katiejane YDG
I used to be able to cash out my earnings easily right to my Venmo account. But recently, it just stopped working! It says “Oops! IbottaSDK.Paymentaccountserror error 1”. Contacted the support team and have not heard back in 3 days so far.
I tried again today after updating the app and got the error message: “account locked. Please contact help desk.”
I have no idea what’s going on, but I have money in there that I need to access! Not happy with Ibotta right now. Used to love this app and would recommend it to everyone. Not so much anymore!
Great app, but one complaint... 4/5
This is a great, easy to use app. However, there’s one thing I find very frustrating. At certain stores you can only redeem rewards by using a store card and connecting it to iBotta. While it seems convenient, there is a couple of negatives to it:
1. You have to load all the offers before you pay, so really before you get to the store. So if I forget to add something there’s no way to submit my receipt after I payed for my purchases. Why not have both options?!
2. Several times only some offers applied but not all, although I had other eligible items purchased. Again, no way to add those manually.
I really wish they would allow users to redeem either way!
They always take down the any item on the receipt why?
Love Extar Savings 5/5
Ibotta makes it so easy to save in store and online. It is also so easy to use and redeem!
Love it!!! 5/5
Amazing App 4/5
Only gave it a 5 start because I was having trouble linking my PayPal. Other then that I’ve NEVER had an issue with it. Really good app to make extra cash on buying stuff you need.
I’m ready to cash out every time I use a 1.50 or more and you think it’s gone through you throw away the receipt and you get a messages saying it didn’t go through for some reason or another use to like this but it’s beginning to be to much for what it’s worth.
Always saving additional money using the app love Ibotta
Had trouble finding items by scanning Walmart receipt. Had to scan codes on most items. Also Walmart did not have several items I wanted that were shown on Ibotta. Otherwise would rate higher.
Going downhill fast! 2/5
This used to be a great App! I used it every time I went shopping. I shared it with all my friends. Went shopping, uploaded my receipt, and got my rebates. Over the years, I have gotten quite a bit of money back. Now, when I go to upload a receipt, it constantly tells me a pristine picture is “blurry”, I do not receive the credit for my items purchased, so I have to go back through, find the items, verify them, scan them, and then submit. Once submitted, I still don’t get credit. When I report the issue, I give the detailed description of the problem, then customer support corrects that error, and debits for other valid purchases, forcing me to go BACK and argue over why the inaccurate deductions are valid.
From all of the other reviews, this app is going to go downhill fast if they don’t get this fixed! Poor Customer Service combined with a bad product will result in failure. Please fix this!
Getting worse 4/5
Made over 2,500$ in 2 years on this app. Some problems but my most recent concern is the changes and it’s more complicated and less money and the only store within 80 miles is Sheetz Sheetz app disappeared and so did others 1% is nothing. I’d have to spend 2000$ to cash out. With the offers it’s possible to make 20$ a day and only spend 100$ why did you take this option away?
Not as good as I thought 2/5
I had tried this app but it was way too much work for the items I purchased. If you use processed foods, it may be better,but it was useless for me. Plus one of the stores I shop at is Aldis and the items stated as available are not
Best Rebate App ever 5/5
Buy what the app says get cash. That easy. I love it.
Keep getting screwed out of offers. Now there isn’t even a place to take pictures of receipts to submit
Grocery list 2/5
They make sure what i usually buy they don’t have in the money back list and they only put name brand most of the time I know that’s why they want you to scan your receipt that can see what is on your grocery list n they very seldom put the things on their list that I pretty much buy regularly and they tell you invite friends n earn extra cash I have failed to get the first bonus all the friends on my list I invited that’s why they are there but they say they are my FB friends yes they are cause they are the ones I invited 😡😡
Doesn't work at times 2/5
Sometimes it doesn't work on the rebates. Tells me item doesn't match when I know it does. Rebates will sometimes disappear before you can upload receipt or they say receipt is not complete.
Very Disappointed 3/5
I have several complaints. At first I thought WOW! It’s a little work but I received $80.00 my first month. But now I load coupons and buy stuff that I don’t necessarily need but will use, however lately I have purchased my items, then I get a message that they can’t see the date on my receipt, then when I go to resubmit the coupon is gone. The scanner doesn’t always let me scan my items. It’s disappointing to lose out on what should be a savings😒
Bug fix 3/5
This app used to be great at 1st but still have not earned any cash back from the items I bought with Meijer I even have my account linked and still nothing it’s been over weeks with no cash back and I’m at 0.00
Great System 5/5
Better than couponing. I really enjoy the weekend warrior bonuses as that’s when I normally shop!
No problems with payouts. Any issues with rewards are handled quickly and correctly.
Dollar Tree 5/5
Stores such as dollar tree should not have coupons like the big stores. Dollar Tree has smaller quantities and cheaper brands.
2017/11/16,06:09-Hello I forgot it put my last brainstorm here.
2019/24/05; 18:43 do not respond to any of my queries.
Not So Good Anymore 3/5
I really liked this app at first because I never had any trouble with it but recently it’s just not the same and I actually lost money from my account. I tried to get help but they basically said I was screwed in the nicest way possible lol
Multi purchase 3/5
I purchased 2 out of 5 on a multi purchase and tried to redeem 3 more but wasn’t able to because the offer disappeared? The store only had 2 and I had to go back when they restocked the item. Can you help? Ed
ZERO STARS! From Ehh to crap 1/5
Hannaford can now be linked. However the values of “any item” has gone down to just $.10 most of the time. Watching videos to get $.15 or $.25 off is a waste of time. Still takes too long to build up enough to cash out. Once I reach the cash out limit I’m deleting the app. Too many name brands I don’t buy and too long to get enough to cash out. And no option to “select all”. And not all the same items available at all stores. I never when or where I’m going to buy what. Should be able to just select an item and have it available at any store.
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.
Where on earth is the redeem button??? 1/5
With this latest update, there is no way to submit a receipt photo for manual offer redemption!!!! The primary way I use this app is now disabled! Very frustrating—please fix this!
Wish there were more options but great other wise 3/5
No more redeem button! 3/5
I signed up recently and haven’t had any issues until I updated the app this morning. Now the redeem button is gone!! C’mon guys, get it together. How the heck am I supposed to get the money I qualify for if I can’t even scan a receipt?!
Doesn’t work 1/5
Receipts constantly fail to send
@ Target 5/5
Just one happy customer🤗
New Version is Harder to Use 2/5
The most recent update makes it really hard to find your offers and really hard to submit a receipt. Most of the tabs at the bottom of the screen are things I don’t use, but the two most important things no longer have tabs. Cool.
Seems like a scam 1/5
Locked my account with no explanation. I followed all of the rules. I wasn’t notified that the account was locked until I tried to withdraw my funds. No email was sent about what I did wrong. This is very janky and not a way to run a business.
