Welcome bonuses are introductory bonuses or sets of bonuses that Ibotta offers to new Savers who join the app for the first time. A Welcome bonus is different from a referral bonus.
Check the Bonuses page of your Ibotta app to see your specific requirements, as these bonuses change regularly.
Is a Welcome bonus available? Here's what you need to qualify:
You must be a brand new Saver to Ibotta without a referral. This means you must have never had an Ibotta account before. Please note that creating multiple accounts with Ibotta will result in account deactivation.
You must be the only Ibotta account on your device. This means you cannot share your device with another Saver, the Saver that referred you, or have a second account with Ibotta. Sharing a device with another Saver will disqualify you from receiving the Welcome bonus.
- You'll need to redeem offers. To qualify for a Welcome bonus, a new Saver must redeem offers as described in the Welcome bonus details. For additional information on how to look up specific bonus details, see What is a bonus?
When you work towards a bonus, a bar will start circling the bonus image, letting you know your progress. Once you complete a bonus, your account will be added, and the bonus will appear under your "Completed Bonuses" section.
Please be aware that a Welcome bonus may be subject to a pending period if the new Saver has redeemed offers via Online Shopping.

Note: Bonuses may work differently during special campaigns or promotional events.
