Your grocery store purchases are likely taking up a huge chunk of your monthly budget. Now, shopping for food might feel like a fixed line item in your budget, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s possible to save big at the grocery store without changing anything about how you shop for food or what you are buying thanks to one of our favorite recent discoveries: Ibotta.
$371 million saved (and counting)
Ibotta attests to having saved its users $371 million and counting by giving them cash back on certain purchases at grocery stores around the US. A quick scan of what’s available on Ibotta, and you’ll find cash back offers of between $1 to $3 on everything from Colgate toothpaste, to kiwi fruit, to Luna bars (the food and the brands you are already buying).
It’s honestly one of the best ways to save money shopping for food.
