Gearing up to go to school is a huge event for families! Between those trips for new clothes, checking every item off the supplies list, and making sure move-in day didn’t leave anything behind there’s not much time to scour for savings. Here are a few easy ways to get your school year going with cash back and Ibotta.

3 tips for successful back to school shopping

Tip #1: Start shopping now

One of the best tips we have for the back to school shopping season is to start now and take advantage of how long the season is! Ibotta has savings on your back to school essentials, and stores have colorful folders and lunch kits ready for you to grab. Check items off your list today!

Tip #2: Shop in chunks

A benefit of the elongated season is the ability to do your back to school shopping across several weeks. If there are a few items on your list with larger price tags, divide the larger purchases to separate weeks, so you’re not dropping a ton of money at once. You may want to plan to buy folders and notebooks early, though! These always run out first. 

If an item isn’t crossed off your list yet due to being out of stock, Ibotta can alert you when it’s back with the browser extension! Learn more about in-stock alerts.

Don’t leave money on the digital table. Get real cash back for every purchase you make! You can earn on shopping in-store, on your pickup and delivery purchases, and even online with storewide and item offers.
