Ibotta is a free cash back app that helps you save time and money by showing cash back deals tailored to you.
You can earn cash back on groceries, clothes, cosmetics, and more at over 300 retailers and 500,000 locations.
Even better – it’s real cash back, not just points.
You can transfer your cash back to PayPal, Venmo, or gift cards. I use PayPal.
Ibotta has over 50,000 five-star reviews and has earned users over $500,000,000 (yes, millions) in cash back.

Here’s an insider’s look at the Ibotta app.
I’ve been using Ibotta for years and have saved a lot of money using it.
I justify the time I spend on Ibotta with the money spent because it does add up.
For example, I often buy a lot of vegan freezer products, and there’s usually a $1.00 cash back with a max of 4, which I typically buy anyways. Lasts me a month and I get $4.00 cash back.
What surprised me was the cash back on fruits and veggies.
And the cash back on skin care and cosmetics is usually amazing ($1.00-$2.00 cash back on drugstore products).
Items in the app may change, so the cashback amounts always change.
If you’re downloading Ibotta on your phone, the app will ask if you have a referral code. Use my referral code: lwyxxrb and you’ll get $10 for signing up.

Walmart Grocery Pickup
My new favorite app is Walmart Grocery Pickup for 2 major reasons: 1) It’s a huge time-saver 2) Convenient, easy pickup. You don’t even get out of your car to get your groceries.
How to get started easily:
- Click here and get $10 toward your first Walmart Grocery Pickup.

If you’re new to Walmart Grocery Pickup, you get $10 off your first purchase here. That means you can get $50 worth of groceries for only $40.
I needed 1 substitution because they didn’t have the item I ordered, so they gave me an even better item for the same price as the original item I ordered. You also save money on groceries because you don’t even get the chance to impulse spend since you’re not in the store.
Bonus: Are you bad at picking fresh produce? Their grocery experts know exactly which to pick from for maximum freshness. If you aren’t satisfied with the freshness, you can get a refund.
