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: Can I make a purchase on the retailer’s website for Ibotta credit?
A: No, in order to receive credit you must make the purchase in the app after starting with Ibotta. However, if you build a basket or start a cart on the website you can get credit for your purchase if you checkout using the app.
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.
