Hey friends, I’m excited to tell you about my very favorite money-saving app for grocery shopping!
Because let’s be honest, allergy-friendly foods are EXPENSIVE. And I sure don’t want you needing a second job just to pay for groceries.
Here’s my secret to saving boatloads on dairy-free, allergy-free, whole food, and organic natural products.
I use the Ibotta App!
Why I Love the Ibotta App
Right from my smart phone, I save literally hundreds of dollars on food I am already going to buy.
Ibotta gives the biggest payoff for my time and effort so I don’t even bother with other apps and coupons now. I’m a busy mom!
But if you are super coupon savvy, you can use store and manufacturer coupons on top of Ibotta rebates to save even more.
This is not a coupon app, it’s a “money-back” app.
That means you pay store price, and then claim your rebates from the convenience of your home.
My husband loves that we don’t have to hold up lines at the cash register, either, lol.
When you redeem your rebates at home after shopping, Ibotta will quickly credit the rebates to your running balance.
When your rebate balance reaches $20, you can redeem for gift cards or cash.
When you redeem your rebates, Ibotta sends you electronic gift cards over email.
It’s that simple!
Here’s me working it at Target.
My Ibotta Strategy
As our members know, I work our food budget each month…
shaving $300 a month off our old spending habits.
That’s an allergy-friendly Disney vacation each year!
I even have a special member-only food budget challenge in our membership.
You should join us!
I am careful to make sure my Ibotta obsession doesn’t throw our food budget out the window.
So now at the beginning of each month, I peruse Ibotta for the best products for my family.
And try to grab them all in a shopping trip or two, working the menu plan around those goodies.
My goal is to get big Ibotta bonuses, like $10 extra for redeeming so many offers!
Check out what I earned back in July!
$12.50 just in bonuses and enough to get my beloved $20 Starbucks card for the month.
Here’s me working the monthly bonuses!
I like to redeem my rebates for Starbucks gifts cards.
But if you don’t need to fund a coffee habit like me,
you may love the Amazon, Walmart, or Target gift card options.
You can even cash in for Whole Foods money. Yay, more groceries!
Here’s me working it at Walmart.
PS: Ibotta doesn’t work on Walmart Pick-Up, but I love pick-up just as much as Ibotta for my grocery budget!
How Ibotta Works
1. Before shopping, choose the offers you are interested in.
2. Shop at any of the major retailers that Ibotta supports.
3. Make sure you buy the offers at the matching store.
4. When you get home, photograph your receipt with your phone.
5. Use your phone to scan the UPC of the items you are redeeming. For some stores, you can skip this!
6. Ibotta will verify your purchases and credit your account usually within 24 hours.
7. Redeem your earnings once you have reached $20.00.
That’s it. Super easy. Save tons of money!
