Last week Anna emailed me to let me know that she was able to link her Publix.com account with Ibotta. I looked and looked trying to figure out how to get my accounts linked. Being able to shop and earn WITHOUT having to submit receipts is my idea of a VERY good thing!
I gave up looking and wouldn’t you know it…the next day I got a message on my app telling me to link my account! So you know I did a little happy dance!
Now I simply have to add offers before I shop, enter my number at checkout, and then I get cash back within 48 hours. How cool is that. No more trying to remember to take pictures of that dang receipt.
Just go to the home page and look for the area that says “LINK YOUR LOYALTY CARD” and then follow the instructions–easy breezy!
You can browse all the offers available and even view those available at a particular store. Because I spend most of my time at Publix, I have it chosen as a favorite so that I can see those offers with a quick tap of the Publix logo.
Once you are viewing the offers, you’ll notice that they are broken up into categories. That makes it easy to check for offers as you shop the different sections of the store. Now I spend a TON of time looking at coupons and offers so I am always pretty familiar with what’s available…so I always view the NEW offers first. When I shop each week, I simply tap the new offer category and scroll to see if there is anything that happens to already be on my shopping list. Then I look to see if maybe an offer matches a Publix sale. If so…it just might make it’s way on my shopping list.
From any of the general category pages you can see the offer specifics by tapping the product image. Then you are taken to the specific offer page where you can check out all the details and add your offer.
You’ll notice they even give you the ability to check to ensure the product you choose is a match to the offer. That way you know what you purchase will allow you to get your moolah…so there are no surprises when you get home to redeem your receipt!
The fun part is finding all the great deals when you shop. I try to share as many deals as I can find but I bet you’ll see something each week that appeals to you AND may already be on your shopping list—so don’t forget to peek at the app before and even WHILE you shop!
So when you spot an offer you like, be sure to add it. Then just stop by the store, load your cart with the matching products and you are ready to earn your moolah.
NOW–if you link your Ibotta offer to your Publix.com account, you are done. You won’t have to do anything else. You will see your cash back in your account within 48 hours of your purchase.
If you don’t link your account, you will need to hit the REDEEM button and follow the easy instructions to send an image of your receipt. Once you are done, you can just sit back and wait for your cash back to be deposited into your Ibotta account within 48 hours.
Once you hit $20 in earnings you can cash out and have your money sent to your PayPal account, Venmo account or even request one of the many gift card options available.
There are 284 supported stores including my favorite–Publix! So if you are not already on board, head over and download the Ibotta app to your device to start earning your cash back!
