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.

Use Ibotta and save money every time you go to the grocery store

Here’s how it works:

  1. First, download Ibotta here
  2. Go shopping at stores Ibotta works with (Target, Walmart, and Costco and more are all available)
  3. Take a photo of your receipt after you make a purchase
  4. The Ibotta app will then scan your purchases looking for qualifying offers
  5. If it finds any, you’ll have cash deposited back into your Ibotta account within 48 hours

While it won’t take long to get hooked using Ibotta while you grocery shop, there are other ways to save money using Ibotta, too. For instance, you can earn cash back shopping online using Ibotta, too. Simply browse the offers in the app at stores ranging from HSN to J.Crew, tap on the shop button, and purchase items at those stores. Again, the cash will be in your Ibotta account within 48 hours.

Give it a shot! Head over to Ibotta to download the app and sign-up for free and start using it every time you grocery shop and shop online!
