The Ibotta app wants to give you $5. And there are two ways.

You start by downloading the Ibotta app.

Then, it’s your choice:

Option #1: Find a cash-back offer on Ibotta, and head to the store for your purchase. Then snap a photo of your receipt to upload to the app. You’ll receive the $5 welcome bonus in your Ibotta account within 72 hours.

Option #2: Shop online, and search for offers. If you’re shopping online, Ibotta will let you know the timeframe in which your money will be deposited into your account.

Keep shopping, and once you hit $20, you can cash out through PayPal or Venmo. You can also opt to receive your rewards as a gift card.

The Penny Hoarder staff writer Carson Kohler used Ibotta for a little over a year and earned $140 in cash back on travel, groceries and online purchases.

Get your cash now by downloading the Ibotta app. Happy shopping!
