Lets starts with you liking the IBOTTA link and signing up. http:// ibotta.com/r/Y65bA. It takes less than a minute and please come back to read this blog.
It is not often that I personally get excited about about a new smart app anymore. Especially the ones that start out by promising to turn your grocery trips into a simple process. I’m one of the few, unlike “that show” that will tell you it does take time out of your weekly routine. But I’m a mom, and I don’t make $400 an hour being a mom. I do make or save twice that amount every month just using coupons and getting free merchandise so, you decide. When you use coupons, it is never going to be 1,2,3 simple. But, it can be worth while …no no…. IT IS WORTH WHILE, especially in the money $aving Sen$e. (see how I did that with the dollar $ign$….cute huh? Thats why I’m a blogger and not on the N.Y. Times Best seller list…Yet) For those needing to get more organized, one of the best places to begin your new found list, is to start making it a habit, start out by starting with what is your household grocery coupon needs vs. available coupons. *PLUS* what current sales make all this worth your time. From the start, you have to learn to stock up on some of the better deals and wait for your favorites to go on sale later. The point is, to start having a well stocked pantry for it costing as little as possible. You can always splurge and ad the special items later.
I want to offer you the chance this very second to download this App real quick, so the rest of this blog makes even more sense. Please click my direct link to get you started. MY DIRECT LINK TO SIGN UP HERE IS; http://Ibotta.com/r/y65bA
Once registered DO NOT, forget to click the confirmation sent back to you via email. As soon as you upload your first receipt, even if it is just for one item on this list, they will auto load $5.00 straight into your account, plus whatever item item you bought. I got $6.00 right off. As proof this is a picture of day first day activities. I already had $10.50 cents inmy count from 3 referals and a a few items on a receipt I uploaded.
So lets start with my app of the week, Ibotta. This appears to be your standard electronic coupon site. Except it’s different. Very Different. The values are higher. The items seem like things I WOULD ACTUALLY BUY. 3 weeks ago another site had a high dollar $5 coupon “IF” I bought $30 in Little Debbie snacks, within 30 days. Now I’m not the thinnest gal on the planet, but I am FAR, FAR away from purchasing $30 of Little Debbie anything in a months time. Even if I ran a Sunday school snack concession stand, I’d still question my moral apptitude on a purchase like that. Back to IBotta….. You choose an item you want and would use around the house, or a food item, just click and add it to your virtual list. It’s there loaded, waiting to be used. First let me say, I liked this site from the start, because all items offered were broken down into easy to use categorys and then it gave a bit of a game like feel as each item had 2 usually 3 circles to cick on that would result in the Q starting at .25cents and going as a high as $1.25, if you could sit through a 15-30 second video. When all was said and done, I had $50.50 cent in pending coupons loaded to my card. 90% of these items I’d by anyway. FOR REAL Here is the fun part, even if you use couons to buy any of these items, You still get full cash value for the items as listed on this site.
This week I cought the following as seen in this ad:
This is where is gets interesting and you can turn already great coupon deals when combined with a sale. Buy 2 for $10, which is $5.00 each, print two of the attachced $2 off mens Clear Scalp Shampoo coupons, this would gave a total down for 2 for $5. Since this product was also on the by 2 get 4000 REWARDS POINTS (REWARDS POINTS ARE WORTH $1.00 EACH, that alreay made the item free or $0 dollar, but with this new IBOTTA APP,
to then upload your receipt and get the $1.75 cents for the product as listed. So now you not only have the free procuct but you earned $1.75. This is just one example of the may free items Wlgreens and Rite Aid offer weekly but with the Cash BACKthrough IBOTTA, I don’t think you can resist
Here is my perfect example for you my Meals, Steals & Family Deal readers to show you that yes you do infact have a few extra minutes a day to save $50 to $100 a week shopping.
Third but but not least,(LAST?) the savings accumulated throught this site can be utilized at yoUr discretion.
You can deposit it into a Pay Pal Account, which will send you a check or direct deposit to a bank account, a school account for your a friends childs school and last but not least the UNITEDWAY.ORG the last two
