Okay, it’s not that easy, but it does give me an opportunity to talk about Ibotta, one of my favorite cash back app sites.
Here’s how it works: When you come back from the supermarket, take a look at Ibotta and see what they’re giving money back for. If you bought any of the brands or products on the list, you’ll earn cash back, from $.25 to $5.00. Upload a photo of the receipt and you’re done. Or, you can register your frequent shopper card, although that requires choosing in advance the products that you’ll be buying.
Of course, that’s not what they’re hoping you’ll do. They’re hoping that you’ll look on the app ahead of time and use it to determine which products to buy. Every once in a while, they’re giving so much cash back that the product is free, but that’s unusual. More frequently, they’ll throw some cash at you for uploading any receipt, just to keep you interested.

I’m not exactly sure how this works, but apparently, if you sign up as my referral and do something in the month of May, we’ll each get $5 and I’ll be entered into some kind of promotion to win money. Yes, it’s all about me, but you can also refer people and be entered as well. Kind of swell.
Ibotta is my favorite of the cash back shopping apps. It costs nothing to sign up and you’ll earn cash back for making purchases. And if you do sign up, it would be really kind of you to use my referral code: B3CKTW. Thanks!
