I used ibotta for a few months and ranked up around $60, I tried to send to my PayPal and was unsuccessful two days later they erased my account. 😤 All that hard work for nothing! Don’t use it!! It’s a lie!! Waste of time!
Not as great of rebates as before 3/5
Been using for a couple years now and rebates have decreased in value and there aren’t as many options before for products
You don’t always get the correct amount. 4/5
For the most part I love Ibotta. Unfortunately sometimes when you try to redeem items multiple times like it prompts you to you don’t always get the right amount back.
Money Back 5/5
I love getting money back on my purchases! 😄
Keep your receipts 2/5
They always find a way to reject your receipts if it’s worth more than a dollar. Twice now they’ve come back 24 hours later with some excuse as to why the receipt was rejected, and this is after I’ve thrown away the receipt to be able to re-submit it. Mind you, the first one was worth $5 and the second was worth $4.
Ibotta = $$$ !!! 5/5
By Cathy Ravenclaw
This is a easy site to use and I’m getting $$$ !! I’m glad I got my Ibotta – you should get it too!
It’s getting better 4/5
Didn’t have anything I wanted in a long time ibotta has been better as of late. There’s a lot of processed foods I don’t eat! Now every once in awhile there are fresh food deals! I also like getting money back from amazon and hopefully from Ulta when I place my order
Easy to use 5/5
I got the app. Selected offers. Shopped at Walmart. Scanned the QR code. Easy as that!
Enjoyed it until 1/5
They took money from my account $3.99 for noting using it for a while. An “inactive fee”. I’d like that back. If I would have known that, I would have cashed out earlier. I was trying to save it up.
I love this app
Worst app around!! Don’t waste your time! 1/5
If you submit your receipts and try to protect your personal info, credit card numbers , etc they accuse you of submitting invalid receipts.
NO “FREE” needs that info! It deserves zero stars but you can’t submit review with zero.
Keeps getting better 5/5
I loved Ibotta from the beginning; but now that more store loyalty cards have been added, it’s even easier. There are so many deals for the things we need and buy on a regular basis. Ibotta helps put money back in our wallets which is much appreciated!
It is Easy to use and you can made money buying what you always buy!
Not bad, could be better though. 3/5
So my main issue is simply the lack of products that I can add. A lot of the deals are on things I never use. Doesn’t make much sense to go through all the work of trying to find things to only to realize that more than 90% of your grocery isn’t even available. When my girl and I go shopping we spend roughly $290. Last time we saved a grand total of 75 cents. That’s not enough to it worth it for us. However I do see great potential in this apps future I just hope it only gets better.
Good savings 5/5
Great app to save some extra money, easy to use! Links to my Meijer card.
Saves money! 5/5
By EOD wifey
This app has been great to me! You get money back for buying certain products that they advertise for companies. Essentially, it’s like retro coupons, so instead of just not spending the money in the first place, they just say “hey, if you buy this, we’ll replace a few cents of what you’ve already spent”. You just have to make sure your “coupons” are added before you shop, or scan. It’s also great for stacking when stores have good sales going on. Sometimes you get store discounts, plus the money back on Ibotta. That is a little bit more work though making sure everything matches.
I’ve been using Ibotta for just over a year and I’ve made 115$ so far. I cashed out around 110$ and transferred it to PayPal. That was the easiest way for me to spend it, without getting the runaround with gift certificates, which people seem to have issues with- reading reviews. The money was immediately transferred, and I spent it shopping online the next day! 115$ in a year isn’t a lot, but considering I didn’t have to do much to get it, I can’t complain! The only thing that I would like to see changed is on the the stores that you can connect your rewards cards to, it would be nice if you had the option to manually scan receipts as well, because they don’t always automatically give you everything you’re supposed to get from your receipt. I’m not gonna cry to customer service over a few cents here and there, but it would be great to have a little bit of the control back in that area like we used to. Other than that, I love this app! Thank you, Ibotta!
Do not download 1/5
Horrible can’t withdrawal any of the money.
Great app, when it works 3/5
This app Is awesome when it works. Free money just for doing your normal shopping! Lately though I’ve had to either turn off my phone or delete and redownload the app every time I go in to use it. This is getting ridiculous. I’ve downloaded new versions pretty much every day, hopefully this bug is fixed soon!
Cannot log into account 1/5
I have had an account for several years and have forgotten my password. I have requested that my password be reset and have followed the instructions to request a temp password. I receive a message that says to check my email for further instructions. I never receive any emails from Ibotta concerning resetting my password. Ibotta does have contact information on their website so it was suggested that I leave a review in hopes that someone will contact me to resolve this issue.
My review 4/5
Need better coupons for bulk stores like SAMs and Costco
First time 5/5
By sleey eye
This is my first time ....here’s to the savings!!
Saved so much everything adds up to gift cards to give my kids 5/5
By coach missy
Great way to save extra money and buy new things i wouldn’t normally buy at a discount . Amazon Joann’s everywhere I shop I save a little and it adds up
I love this app getting money back for what you buy
I like it 5/5
I like it so far.
Poor service (Don’t Download) 1/5
Get nothing but automated responses. Account was closed, asked 5 times why and have not heard back from anyone. Was not even able to withdraw money saved up. More like a scam than a service.
Definitely Recommend! 5/5
I usually make a grocery list, so before going to the store I’ll usually search all of the items I’m already buying in the app — odds are, at least one of my items will be on there. The money adds up just by claiming things I’m already purchasing!
Love getting money back from shopping I’m already planning on doing anyways. It’s definitely nice to get a little kick back every now and then. It’s not a whole lot of work and I like to try to open Ibotta before even shopping online (LOVE that you get percentages back on amazon!!!). If you want a bonus (&to help me get a bonus too :)) use my referral code : thpuorh
It was easy, and I got cash back
Love this app 4/5
I love this app and have already gotten 2 gift cards from saving. I give it 4 stars because it sometimes would not give me savings back on specific items I bought. I would try to scan the receipt but it wouldn’t focus.
Totally impossible to use! I got into the help section and couldn’t get back out no matter what I tried! Would never take me back to the retailer selection screen! I’ve wasted a full hour on this useless app!
There just doesn’t seem to be a lot of offers on things most families but a lot.
I had quite a few frustrating issues in the beginning with the program excepting my password and recognizing my account. I did finally receive a $20 gift card. I’m still unsure about the lifetime rewards because it states I have 40 some dollars lifetime but I have only earn $20 total. Very confusing! Also when you scan your receipts it doesn’t match up everything, you have to add what you bought to the list. I also feel that I don’t buy a lot of stuff that is on the Ibotta list, so I don’t earn a lot of rewards very quickly. Overall it’s OK.
Ibotta offers 4/5
By Remote Home
I wish I had more offers for crafts and household. I seem to only have grocery items.
Great App 5/5
I have been using this app for awhile now and I’m telling you, this is a great app if you’re on a budget. I have a family of 4 and before I go to the store I checked the app and compared my grocery list and boom walla a money back to most of my list. Thank you Ibotta you’ve been a life saver to me and to all the millions of people who uses the app.
Math teach 5/5
I love getting money for groceries and other things that I purchase anyway. No
More clipping coupons!!
SCAM ALERT; USER BEWARE 1/5
This app was great at first; however, it’s now nothing more than a giant scam. I stopped using this app when I realized CASH REDEMPTIONS ARE IMPOSSIBLE. Good luck with the Help Desk because CUSTOMER CARE is literally nonexistent. It takes months to receive an automated response which is nothing more than a regurgitation of FAQs. Issues are never resolved. Finally, the app’s performance is clunky at best. As a UX professional, this is one of the worst apps I’ve ever used.
Don’t waste your time with this app. I’m not even sure why Apple allows this app to be in the store. HORRIBLE!
Update: As another example as to how slow and incompetent the people behind the app: The developer finally responded after nearly two years by saying “thanks for the feedback.” Problem still not resolved. STAY AWAY FROM THIS APP. It’s a full blown scam.
Longtime user-cant withdraw? 1/5
So I’ve been using this app for some time, and I’ve made $75 cash since I started this summer, which is decent (you definitely cant make a living out of this, thats for sure.) But today, I went to withdraw, and my app gave me a “Oops! (IbottaSDK.PaymentAccountsError error.0)” and would not let me withdraw. I have logged out/ logged back in of both paypal and venmo, logged out and logged back into the app, shut my phone off- etc. same answer. Very disappointed to say the least. I feel scammed not being able to withdraw my $35 which honestly takes a hot second to build up!
Really disappointed 3/5
I started using this app as a way to earn extra cash, I referred my mom and never for my referral bonus, contacted the care team and didn’t resolve anything, now I finally withdrew 20 to my Venmo account and the money is no where to be found, like come contact the care team and I have not received any feedback from them. Contacted Venmo and they indicated they don’t see anything coming from them. I don’t see myself using this app anymore if this is how things are going to be. Has anyone experience issues with getting there money?
Could be better 3/5
I like Ibotta but it could be so much better. If they were able to offer more brands that are more commonly purchased that’d be better.
Join my team for $10 4/5

Use promo code ndapari when signing up!
They lie about giving you a bonus! They just want you to spend
So far, so good 4/5
By Me me meow
Hope this is as easy and worth the effort as advertised. Nothing like getting a few extra rebates for things I already buy anyway.
Easy to use 5/5
A great way to get some cash back from what you are already use every single day
Love it 5/5
By Patita Loza
I love this app Ibotta has change the way I do my shoppings, I get money back from my groceries from items I am buying anyways. Why not take advantage and get more out of your money. If you are not using Ibotta don’t loose money try it today.
Love it 5/5
I love this app. I’ve gotten back nearly $150 just buying things I normally buy! I expected it to be some kind of ripoff but was delighted to find that it’s the real thing. You gotta try it!
Fist Timer 5/5
This is my first scan and it took me a couple of times to capture the receipt...I still don’t understand all of this or how I get paid
Waiting for the $20 to collect and close app 4/5
Too much work and the items are mostly processed foods and alcohol. I found other apps that work better for me without having to scan any coupons. Started all the apps around the same time to compare. This one is not a keeper. Probably great for saving some $ on alcohol.
Kind of annoyed 3/5
I love Ibotta but they did debit 3.99 from my account for inactivity . So beware .
