I have two great, tried and true resources for earning cash back on purchases I’d already be making: Rakuten (formerly Ebates) for online purchases and Ibotta for in-store grocery purchases. (And it’s important to distinguish that these aren’t coupons. You’re earning cash for shopping, which to me is so much more fun! To date, I’ve earned $1,569.71 in cash back from Rakuten and $354.87 in cash back from Ibotta. (And again — I earned cash on money I’d be spending anyway. Such a no brainer!)
If you don’t use these resources yet, I’d recommend changing that ASAP!
Get cash back on online purchases:
–Sign up for a Rakuten account here. (Tip: Install the browser extension so that you’ll be notified whenever you’re shopping on your computer and are on a Rakuten-eligible website.)
Get cash back on in-store purchases:
–Download the Ibotta app here. (Tip: Before you go grocery shopping, make your list and then take a few minutes to browse the Ibotta app to see if there are any deals that align with your shopping list!)
