Frugal Forum February 3, 2013

Having a coupon is one way to save but now with your smartphone another fun and easy way to make money is by downloading the app called Ibotta. Before you head out to shop, browse through all the different offers. You can earn money by watching a quick video, viewing recipes, taking polls, posting to your Facebook wall and more. Then when you actually buy the product at participating stores like Rite Aid, CVS, Target, Walmart and Walgreens you get cash back on your purchase. Just take a picture of your receipt and upload it via the Ibotta app. Ibotta will then verify your purchase and add the credit to your account within 24 hours. Once you have earned at least $5 you can transfer your earnings directly to your PayPal account. If you would rather you can opt to donate your earnings to your favorite school. Just choose withdraw cash and then select Donate to Schools. It was very easy to do. When using coupons you always want to get even more savings by using them with a sale but now you can get another bonus by earning money while using your phone.

Remember a coupon is only valuable if it is used for something you need. If the product is something you know you would never use leave your coupon on the shelf for someone else to use. I call this being a coupon angel.
