Ibotta: Now Earn Cash Back at the Movies
If you’re a fan of the FREE Ibotta app (one of my favorite money-earning apps available for both iPhones and Androids!), you’ll be happy to know that Ibotta now works at the movies! Woo Hoo! So if you’re planning to hit the theaters over this holiday weekend, check out the offers that you may be able to snag if you live near an AMC Box Office, Regal Box Office, United Artists Box Office and/or Edwards Box Office. Ibotta even works at their concession stands.
* Get $1 cash back Thor: The Dark World Offer valid on single movie admission ticket
* Get $1 cash back THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE Offer valid on single movie admission ticket
* Get $2 cash back when you spend $12 on Movie Theater Concessions Valid on single trip

IMPORTANT: To verify the movie ticket redemption so you earn your cash from Ibotta, you will need to take a picture of the ticket stub which must be generated at the Box Office or theater kiosk. The ticket stub is the portion that the ticket taker hands back to you for entrance into the movie and includes the name of the movie, time and date of showing, price of ticket paid, and auditorium number. Printed receipts from ticket purchase, electronic tickets, or print at home tickets will not be accepted. To verify your movie concession purchase,  you will need to take a picture of the receipt handed to you from the concession stand after purchase of items.

Here’s how it works:
Head over here and download the Ibotta app for FREE.
Before you head out to shop, browse through the different offers in the Product Gallery found after selecting a store. You’ll earn money by watching quick videos, viewing recipes, taking polls, posting to your Facebook Wall etc. AND then actually going to the store to purchase these specific items. Note that Ibotta works in every Rite Aid, CVS, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, and over 50 other retailers in the United States and has plans to expand to even more retailers in the near future. The awesome part for all of us couponers, is that in addition to getting cash back on your purchases, you can also use manufacturer’s coupons to lower your out of pocket expense.
When you open Ibotta, you’ll see Ibotta Offers . Choose a product and complete one or more of the tasks for each offer. The more tasks you complete, the more pending cash you will add to your account. Unlock these earnings by purchasing the product in a selected store.

Once you have activated all of the items you intend to purchase, go shopping! Your offers will be added to your Pending list. Purchase your items at any of the over 50 retailers where Ibotta works. And, be sure to check your favorite stores to find exclusive offers that are only available at select stores. The expiration date for each offer can be found on both your Pending list and in the Ibotta Product Gallery (tap on the item to reveal the expiration date). Additionally, if an offer is less than 5 days away from expiring, an “expiring” flag will be displayed and expiration date for those items as well.
Upon return from the store, select “Redeem” in the lower right-hand corner of the Ibotta Product Gallery. Read the tips, then select “Continue” at the bottom of the page. (Don’t forget to upload the entire receipt including the logo, date and total).

Ibotta will verify your purchases and send you cash within 24 hours. Depending on the store, there are two ways to verify purchases:
*If the store selected shows Redeem in the Product Gallery, take a picture of your receipt and follow the instructions.
*If the store is an Ibotta Preferred Partner, it’s even easier – choose Link Account and register your loyalty card or phone number. At checkout, use your loyalty card or phone number, and we’ll handle the rest!
After uploading the receipt, check and barcode scan each item on the receipt available for redemption (Note: for iPod 4th generation and iPad2 users, you will not be prompted to barcode scan). Once submitted, your receipt is now on it’s way for review, and most receipts will receive credit within 24 hours!

Once you’ve reached at least $5 in earnings, Ibotta lets you transfer your earnings directly to your PayPal account. Choose Withdraw Cash from the main menu of the app, then select Get My Cash to link Ibotta to your PayPal account. Or, when you reach the required payout amount you can also redeem your earnings for gift cards! How awesome is that?!
Be sure to tell Ibotta which offers you like and dislike by tapping the image of any product and choosing either thumbs-up or thumbs-down. Over time the app learns what kinds of products you prefer and offers them accordingly.

Also note that there is no limit on the number of offers you can redeem. Once you have successfully redeemed an offer, Ibotta immediately restocks your shelf with a new offer. The more offers you redeem, the more new offers you will see, and the more money you can earn.
(Thanks, Freebies for a Cause!)
