You may already have Ibotta, but does your partner? If the answer is no, download it onto his or her phone ASAP! By doing so, you’ll get twice as many offers for your household and receive an automatic $11 that can be saved for your next date night. Check this out:
1. Earn $22 when both you and your partner download Ibotta.
If you’re brand new to Ibotta, welcome! You’re about to save on groceries, apparel, and more with my second favorite app of all time (learn more about Ibotta and my first favorite app here)!
Plus, if you and your boo download Ibotta on your individual devices, you’ll both get an automatic $10 when you sign up and redeem one offer—and an extra $1 each from KCL. That’s $22 total! And yes, you two can use the same PayPal account when it’s time to cash out.
2. Get twice as many offers.
My husband is one of those people who drinks milk instead of water to wash down his meal (totally weird, in my opinion). This means multiple gallons of milk are purchased every week. Ever since I had the hubs download Ibotta onto his phone, we’re cashing in on two Ibotta milk rebates instead of one, which definitely helps when your family drinks milk as much mine! (Think about doubling all those bread, eggs, and produce offers too!)
Tip: When you take advantage of identical offers across two Ibotta accounts, make sure you do separate transactions at checkout. You’re only allowed to submit a receipt once. If you try to submit the same receipt into both you and your partner’s account, your accounts could be flagged for fraudulent activity.
3. Go Dutch on date nights.
Ask the server to split the bill when you go out to eat—especially if there are adult beverages involved. Ibotta cash back offers for wine and beer exist, and are even available at certain restaurants when you order the specified brand of alcohol. Just make sure to ask for itemized receipts that show the brand(s).
4. Take your teamwork to the next level with double the bonuses.
Being married also means being on the same team as your best friend. When you’re on an Ibotta team with your best friend, who also happens to share their groceries with you, you both win in Ibotta teamwork bonuses! For example, if you redeem 12 rebates, and your team redeems at least $15 worth of rebates together, you'll get an extra $2 in your account—and so will your spouse!
Tip: Find more teammates by connecting with friends on Facebook via the Ibotta app.
5. Buy more clothes for less.
It’s nearly spring, and your kids need new clothes, so you go to Aeropostale. Right now there’s a $5 rebate for Aero purchases over $40 on Ibotta. When you do two separate transactions—both over $40—you can save $10 total by uploading two different receipts into you and your spouse’s accounts. Pay with a discounted Raise.com gift card for even more savings!
6. Discover new offers together.
While I always scroll through the “Beauty & Wellness” offers, I rarely check those under “Sports & Fitness.” Since downloading Ibotta, my husband has become obsessed with checking for new offers and has discovered rebates I didn’t even know existed (like those in the Sports & Fitness category). Discovering new ways to save together with a great new app has been amazing!
