Mobile Shopping: A Step-by-Step Guide

Earning cash back with other apps is easy, just follow the steps below to get started:


Step 1: Open the Ibotta app and select the “Find Rebates” option from the navigation bar. *Haven’t tried Ibotta yet? Download the App.

Step 2: Select the “Mobile Shopping” category.

Step 3: Select a mobile app.

Step 4: Select the “Shop” button.

*If you already have the app, Ibotta will take you straight there. If you do not have the app installed, Ibotta will prompt you to download the app.


Step 5: Complete a purchase within that mobile app.

Step 6:  That’s it! You’ll receive a notification shortly confirming that your rebate is pending.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long does it take to verify my rebate? 

A: Each mobile app will have its own pending period. While some will reward you with cash instantly others can take a few days. Please review the rebate details within the app for more information.

Q: How many times am I able to use a Mobile Shopping rebate? 

A: The great thing about our Mobile Shopping rebates is that they’re always available! Just launch from Ibotta and you can use it each and every time you shop.

Q: Do I need to verify anything?

A: Nope! As long as you launched the partner app with the Ibotta ‘Shop’ button and then made a mobile app purchase, you will be credited once your order is fully processed.

Q: Do I have to download the app to get the rebate?

A: No, but we do recommend downloading the app rather than using the mobile web view. This will provide a faster, smoother experience.

      I do not understand how to get $10 rebate. Shopped first week and it shows my savings, but it keeps telling me that I have so many days to get rebate!

    I went into my local liquor store and saw a post for this app to get rebate on him beam burbuon. I don’t see that liquor store or Jim beam on this app? So is there no rebate?

        You keep repeating the same reply message to users who are having trouble redeeming the welcome bonus. I’m having the same issue and your link is not helpful at all. I need someone to actually walk me through this app because it’s very confusing! My welcome bonus is expiring today and I can’t use it.

    Received an email that says “Welcome to the new Ibotta” with a picture of a new app screen. Turned on my Ibotta app and everything looks just like it used to. Nothing new at all.

    I downloaded the app, chose my items from the app and tried to take a picture of my receipt. It kept asking for a loyalty card and wouldn’t give me a prompt for a picture. I think this app might be garbage. I should get my savings and the initial 10 to start. Supposedly, my sister in law should get a bonus also. Is this a scam?

    I bought 2 name brand items and my account shows my rebates but not my $10 bonus. Does it take a few days for that to show up on my account?


      1. Amy Hottman

        Grrrr!! Seems like you’re penalizing people for the convenience of Wal-Mart pick up. Can you explain why you won’t accept these receipts? We’re still choosing the items featured by Ibotta. If you don’t fix this, I’ll likely quit using Ibotta. 😦


  6. I downloaded the Ibotta app 3 days after I made an online purchase through Amazon. Can I claim the $10 rebate and if my purchases qualify, am I eligible for the rebates?


  7. Char

    I made a purchase on through the Ibotta app a few days ago, and have not seen my rebate nor my bonus. My boyfriend has the same issue with his Groupon purchase from two weeks ago. Please advise.
