**Update: We’ve just received word that this promotion ends Friday at 2pm CST, and new users will have until Thursday, 1/17 at 2am CST to redeem their first successful offer and receive the $5 bonus.
We’ve mentioned the Ibotta app where you can earn cash back for purchasing groceries simply by scanning and uploading your grocery store receipts (you can check out the intro post and a step-by-step walkthrough for more information).
Free $5 Credit
There’s good news for new users if you’ve been holding out on downloading this app: If you’re a new user, you’ll get $5 added to your account instantly as soon as you redeem at least 1 successful offer from the Ibotta Product Gallery by uploading a receipt and receiving cash on your Ibotta account. This free $5 offer is only available for a limited time.
Please note: You must sign up through an Ibotta referral link (like this one and the others in this post) to get the free $5 credit; you will not get it if you just download the app and sign up for an account that way.
They’ve also added new stores to the app – in addition to being able to earn at Duane Reade, Target, Walgreens and Walmart, you can now also earn cash back at King Soopers, Kroger, Ralphs, Safeway, and Vons, among many other stores.
The updated Ibotta app also includes new earning opportunities, improved speed and accuracy, and a new United Way partnership if you wish to donate your earnings.
The app is now available for iPhone, iPod touch or iPad and Android.
Your turn: Which offer did you choose to redeem for your free $5 credit? What other questions do you have about the Ibotta app?
