Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Whether you love it or hate it, shopping is a part of life. You need groceries, household supplies and clothes.
If you want to make money while shopping for the things you need and want, you're in luck, because - there's an app for that.
It seems too good to be true: earning cash every time you go shopping.
But with a little work your smartphone and Ibotta can do just that
It's a reward program that earns you real money that you can cash out whenever you want.
When you open the app, you see all of the offers available for rewards.
You activate each product by clicking on it and then can do tasks for each offer.
To earn extra money, you click on each circle and do things like learn facts, answer a trivia question, take a poll, post to Facebook, or watch a video.
The more tasks you complete, the more money you'll add to your account. You actually get the money in your account when you buy the product, take a picture of your receipt and upload it in the app.
Ibotta works in more than 50 retailers and restaurant, like Burger King, Chilis, Costco, CVS, Home Depot, Lowe's, Target, Sam's Club Walgreens and Walmart- just to name a few. They add new stores all the time.
And the important part - cashing out. Once you earn $5 you can link it to your PayPal account and cash out whenever you want or choose gift cards from places like iTunes, Redbox, Starbucks or donate the money to a school.
New users can also get several bonuses to earn more money. Ibotta is free in both the Google play and Apple markets.
