When you shop in-store, you will be provided an itemized receipt printed at the register. This paper receipt is what you will submit to Ibotta for cash back. Cash back can be earned on offers added to Your list that match items you purchased.
If available at the retailer, you can also earn cash back on Any Receipt offers added to Your list; valid on the submission of a grocery receipt.
Find your retailer
Search for your retailer in the app, and be sure In-store is listed below its name.
If the retailer supports linking a loyalty account, you can earn automatic cash back without submitting a receipt. To learn more, check out: How do I earn cash back with a loyalty account?
Add your offers
Add (+) offers to Your list prior to shopping.
If you forgot to add an offer before completing your purchase, you can still add it to your list before submitting your receipt.
Shop for your offers
Shop for your offers in-store and save your itemized paper receipt printed from the register.
Submit your receipt
Receipts must be submitted using the app. Unfortunately, itemized paper receipts cannot be submitted on the web or desktop.
