This is a sponsored post in partnership with Ibotta; as always all opinions are my own.
From an unexpected year in 2020 with a pandemic that rocked the world, that took us by surprise and had us guessing what is next just to get more lows in between, 2020 really hit it out of the park on the awful meter. And now that a new year is here 2021 still looks uncertain for some of us, but at least we made it to another new year where we can set new goals and hey maybe even some New Year Resolutions.
I’m not big on Resolutions myself but I felt one was needed to add in this year and that is SAVING. Budgeting has never been my thing. But if there was ever a time I started saving ever it would be now. 2021 will be all about budgeting for my family and I and it’s with a very good reason behind it. But those are some other big news I’ll share with you all later…
For now I want to share with you guys about Ibotta, it is 100% free and a great way to earn cash back while you’re shopping, especially for groceries.
And if you are asking yourself,
“WHAT IS IBOTTA?”
Ibotta a free cash back rewards app that gives you real cash for everyday purchases when you shop online or in-store. Ibotta partners with brands and retailers to offer rebates and discounts on consumer packaged goods, retail purchases, and restaurant dining through a mobile app, similar to traditional coupons and rebates. It provides thousands of ways for consumers to earn cash on their purchases by partnering with more than 1,500 brands and retailers. Whether you’re buying groceries, clothing, electronics, and more, Ibotta will pay you cash for your purchases.
Ibotta also has cash back and rebates on alcohol (wine, beer, and spirits) that can be purchased at bars, restaurants, and liquor and grocery stores. The app is available on both iOS and Android devices or if you prefer to shop from your computer, they have a new browser extension.
So to sum it up- it’s basically couponing without clipping coupons! You do not have to spend hours planning out your shopping list. You do not have to be the annoying person in line holding things up an extra ten minutes because you are trying to save a few bucks.

RESOLUTIONS WITH REWARDS
This January, Ibotta is introducing two new seasonal savings programs designed to help everyone start the new year off right – with cash back.
In January Ibotta launched ‘Resolutions with Rewards’, a month-long grocery sales event with cash back offers on grocery and other everyday items to help jumpstart a healthy lifestyle. And also, the ‘Year of You’ to help make 2021 a little brighter and to allow consumers to focus on themselves, even when on a budget.
So, whether you’re starting the year with resolutions OR looking for rewards, Ibotta has your (cash) back.
All offers were valid as of publish date. Don’t forget to check your app for details as offers change frequently and may not be available in all areas.
