$100+ Reasons to Invite Friends to Ibotta

For a limited time only, refer friends to Ibotta & make $100+ in bonus cash!

How to Invite Friends

At Ibotta it pays to be social. When you successfully refer a friend to Ibotta you’ll receive $5.00 every time! Now you can earn even more cash for inviting friends to Ibotta with your unique referral code. In order to receive referral credit, the person you refer must do two things:

Step 1: Register a new Ibotta account using your unique referral code.

Step 2: Redeem a rebate within 7 days of registering (Any Brand and Any Item rebates excluded).

That’s it! Once they complete the steps above you’ll receive your referral credit.

How to Earn Bonus Cash

For a limited time, we’re offering bonus cash for inviting friends. The more friends you refer, the more bonus cash you’ll make! Take a look at the chart below for official bonus qualifications:

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: My friend just signed up using my code, but I haven’t received my referral credit. Why? 

A: Your friend MUST redeem a rebate before you’ll receive the $5.00 referral credit. “Any Brand” and “Any Item” rebates do not qualify. *Pro-Tip: Remind them they need to redeem a rebate to get their $10 Welcome Bonus. 

Q: How do I receive the referral bonuses? 

A: The bonuses described above each have their own qualifications. To receive the $10 bonus, you’ll need to successfully refer two friends. To receive the $25 bonus, you’ll need to refer an additional five friends. To receive the $50 bonus, you’ll need to refer an additional 10 friends. In order to receive all three bonuses, you’ll need to refer 17 friends successfully.

Q: Do the friends I refer for the first bonus carry over to the next referral bonus?

A: No, they do not. For example, once you successfully refer two friends and receive the $10 bonus, you’ll need to refer an additional five to receive the $25 bonus.

Q: Once I complete all three bonuses mentioned above, will they reset so I am able to complete them again? 

A: The program itself does not reset, but you will continue to get a $50 bonus for every additional 10 friends you refer to Ibotta.

Q: How can I promote my referral code?

A: Social media is a great way to get the word out. Share your unique referral code or referral link on Facebook & Twitter to let your friends know they should sign up!

  1. I am a blogger and I invite friends to join Ibotta all of the time. Many of them have attempted to join with my link which never works but instead takes them to the general sign up page and with over 25 friends attempting to join under me, I have gotten credit for (drumroll please) zero! This is my biggest pet peeve with this app:(.

        I have found when getting friends to sign up it helps to assist them in the initial setup because they are unfamiliar they dont realize they arent using the code, i also like to help my referals through their 1st rebates and familiarize themselves with the app


  2. Deb

    Disappointed there are not many products I purchase and I never see any new products forth coming. Not sure I will continue…even though I got another person to sign up. Seems like only liquor is posted as the big items and I don’t drink.

    i remember there was something that said you could change the referral code so your friends could remember it easier.. i cant find that info now. does that still work and if so where is the info link or how do you do it.


  4. Candice

    I referred a friend but they did not use my referral code, they logged in with Facebook instead. How do they enter my referral code?


  5. Julie Young

    I had 5 friends who didn’t use my code. So like someone previously said possibly the referral link is bad. I looked at it and people will click on your link, not mine. The latest one is I’ve been bragging about Ibotta for months on Facebook. Now all of a sudden a friend from Texas who saw my referral invite, is now on my team.

    It seems that many people are inviting their friends with the referral code and not getting credit for it and/or a referral bonus credited to their account. The same thing happened to me. Contacted the help desk and it was not resolve to my satisfaction. I have many more people to invite but have reservations now that I know is not a one time thing and I might not get the credit.


  7. Diana Waldrep

    The best way, I’ve found, to make sure my referral code is credited is to get them to simply download the app itself. I’ve helped a few friends sign up, and its definitely not difficult. Download app, sign up with email, the last line allows the user to input a referral code. Ibotta is an imbedded app, I’ve never had to sign in except when getting a new phone. My brother signed up under Facebook…i was credited the very instant he received his welcome bonus…

    I haven’t been able to get back in my account for almost a yr ….I’ve have messaged many many times with no luck 😡😡Ibbota

    Is there a way to see which of your friends used your referral code? I helped my sister join a while back and there is still no sign of anything showing that I referred her. Also is there a way to view my “pending” referrals? It says I have two and to encourage them to use the app but I don’t know who.


  10. Phillip Rush

    Yeah, I have tried referring friends with my code a lot of times, plus I share the link with my referral code to friends on Facebook a lot. At this posting I have only 1 person who has successfully used my code to sign up but several of my friends have signed up after seeing my posts. I am happy with the rebate app but not your referral process. I think I will stop asking my friends to join until you provide a sign up app with my referral code built into that is shareable on social media to avoid them clicking the Ibotta link and missing my referral code.As many emails as you send me you could provide a clickable link with my code that auto posted my code and request for joiners. I hope you take this seriously because I certainly do!

    People have told me this is a great thing they say the have made and redeemed several hundreds of dollars. Just thought l’d give it a shot! Who doesn’t like saving money?


  12. Traci

    I am confused on getting the money, my account says I have to have $20, I have redeemed several coupons and added to my sign up bonus but I keep getting a message saying time is running out. Am I going to lose my money if I don’t get $20? I am confused. I have added several rebates to my account since signing up.


  13. Estela paredes

    Ya son dos personas q eh rreferido y nunca recivi los 5 dólar de cada una y tampoco los 10 de bienvenida .
    La verdad estoy muy molesta porque les eh mandado e-mail y no me contestan.
