Everyone talks about how awesome the economy is, and it is. However, even though there are less people out of work, inflation has gotten out of control while wages have not moved.
How do you get some of YOUR money back in your wallet?
Pay attention to my posts in this area, because I know what I am writing about. We went through years of unemployment and had to learn these tips just to get through those very lean times.
I am going to give you a few more apps to help you get more of your own money back in your own wallet. Not only that, but show you how you can stack these apps to get even more money back.
This first, let me introduce you to some more apps.
Ibotta: Use code Ixybtmw or the link HERE and get a $10 bonus.
Start with Ibotta and save more money on the things you buy every day! Receive your welcome bonus when you reach $10 in earnings. Check out the $2 In-Store and $3 Online bonuses for a great place to start!
With Ibotta, you can scan receipts, link loyalty cards, and you can do mobile in-app purchases.
Want cash back on groceries? This is the app for you. Check out the app to see if your regular stores are on it. It includes ALL of mine and that is why I use it.
There are specific items that they offer, so it's like loading coupons on your loyalty card. Which, by-the-way, be sure to do that as well. REMEMBER: You can stack and save.
Ibotta also has offers through Amazon, Kohl's & Groupon, among many, many others.
How does it work?
1. Look on their app for offers, add them to your offer basket,
2. Go shopping for those items at any of the participating stores.
3. Take a photo of your receipt through the app.
4. Ibotta will match your scanned receipt to the offers you selected prior to shopping.
5. Within 48 hours, your cash back will be placed in your Ibotta account.
6. You can get paid via Venmo or PayPal.
1. Link your loyalty card for any participating store.
2. Select items from offers on Ibotta before you go shopping.
3. Use your loyalty card or phone number when you shop.
4. Ibotta takes care of the rest...bam! Cash deposited into your Ibotta within 48 hours.
Ibotta also offers in-app purchases. So there are many ways you can get some of your money back into your wallet.
How can they pay me?
These apps use your information and that is how they are able to pay you. They sell your information (i.e., shopping purchases) to market research companies. So they are essentially paying you for the market research you help provide.
Let's look at using two apps with Ibotta. This will also be stacked with available coupons from whatever store you buy stuff from.
First, use Ibotta. But also use these. Let's first add Ebates to the mix.
Step 1: Get both Ebates and Ibotta apps.
Step 2: Link your information on both and link a credit card on Ebates so you can use Ebates in-store. Note: If using a debit card, remember to use the card as a credit...do not use your pin when you purchase in-store or the Ebates will not work..
Step 3: Find an in-store cash back offer that you like and link it to your card.
Step 4: Pay with linked card in the store.
I need to buy Rubbermaid FreshWorks Countertop containers for my bananas, so they will stay fresh longer.
I know that BedBath&Beyond is on both Ebates and Ibotta. I see that there is $3.00 back on Ibotta and I can get 2% cash back on Ebates, if I use the linked card. I also have a BedBath&Beyond coupon for 20% off one item. That is stacking three things right there.
The large container is $24.99.
You get $3.00 back from Ibotta.
You get $.50 back on Ebates.
You get $5.00 off with your 20% coupon.
You pay $16.49, that's approximately 34% off, and we could continue stacking, but I will save that for the next post in this tab.
