ibotta redemption now available at Schnucks


schnucks logo

Have you heard? You can now redeem ibotta offers when you shop Schnucks! Click here to register with ibotta for FREE  and start earning money today on the things you already buy! Once registered online here then download the app on your phone via the iOs or Playstore. The app is required to submit a receipt.

Then simply open the app, unlock the offers you want and shop. Note you do not have to unlock offers before you shop but you do before you redeem the offer. When you have purchased an item for which there is an ibotta rebate simply find the offer for the offer at the store you shopped, hit redeem and follow the prompts. You will need to scan the bar code on the product then take a picture of your receipt and submit it via the app. Its very simple. Many times I do this in the parking lot when I am done shopping. It takes just a moment.  Once you hit $10 in your ibotta account you can cash out. I cash out to Paypal but you can also get various e gift cards such as Walmart, Starbucks and more.

Keep in mind that not all offers are available at all stores so make sure to check the specifics of each store.

Also you CAN use manufacturer coupons along with an ibotta redemption.

In the past Schnucks has not been an option for redeeming ibotta but now it is! In our Rockford Illinois area you can also redeem ibotta at Target, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, HyVee( for our Sycamore , IL area readers), Meijer, Sams Club, Piggly Wiggly Midwest for our Genoa area readers, as well as Family Dollar, Home Depot , Lowes and more!  Piggly Wiggly shoppers remember you redeem ibotta via your store card. You have to add your store card to the ibotta app on your phone once you are registered .

So get started with ibotta here. Register here online then download the app and you are on your way to earning money!
