    With Ibotta, you make valid purchases at your favorite stores and then upload a photo of your receipt. Within 24 hours you'll get cash back into your Ibotta account. It works a little more like a rebate and less like a coupon but the payout is so quick that it's just as convenient.

    You can also link certain store loyalty cards to your Ibotta account so valid Ibotta offers will automatically go into your account, no receipt upload necessary.

    Once you reach $20 you can withdraw your money and have it sent to PayPal or Venmo or you can purchase a gift card through the app.
