I had 89 offers out of 115 done going into yesterday on the Ibotta month long $35 Blossom Bonus.
I figured I'd buy 7 x $5 gift cards to Walmart which would use $35 of my monthly earnings so I did that leaving me 19 offers away from getting both the $5 Weekend Bonus and the $35 Blossom monthly Bonus(Each gift card you purchase in Ibotta earns you a rebate offer). I also had a $10 free Fetch gift card and a free $5 Shop Kicks gift card to use, so $50 in gift cards to use. I also tried to get items that double dipped on more than one platform to get some of the items for very cheap or free after all rebates.
Here's what I bought.....
* 1 x Lipton gallon tea
* 1 x Gatorade Protein drink
* 1 x Breakstone cottage doubles
* 1 x Core Keto Protein bar
* 1 x Kraft mac and cheese
* 1 x Ragu pasta sauce
* 1 x Campho Phenique first aid cream
* 1 x Degree men's deodorant
* 1 x Carbona color grabber
* 1 x Carbona Stain Devil
* 1 x Nice N' Clean flushable wipe 3 pack
* 1 x Thomas' Swirl Bread
* 1 x Wonder Hot dog Rolls
* 2 x Johnson's Skin nourishing products
* 1 x Dove men's ultimate deodorant
* 1 x Dove women's ultimate deodorant
* 1 x Mtn Dew Major Melon drink
* 1 x Mtn Dew Spark Zero drink
* 1 x Mtn Dew Zero drink
* 1 x Suave shampoo
* 1 x Suave body wash
* 1 x Suave hand santizer
Total came to $78.95.
I used $4.75 in coupons making the total $74.20 and sales tax was $3.51for a grand total of $77.71.
I used $50 in assorted gift cards leaving me to pay $27.71 OOP.
I earned back $75.50 on Ibotta for completing 23 regular rebates(2 any item offers and the Carbona items each double attached to 2 separate rebates), the $5 Weekend Bonus, and $35 Blossom Bonus, an extra $1 Breakstone Bonus and .03¢ cash back on each of the 7 Ibotta gift cards I bought/used.
I earned $2.35 worth of points on Fetch for this transaction.
I earned $18.58 worth of points on Shop Kick for this transaction.
I earned .56¢ worth of points on Swag Bucks for this transation.
These items were free or better than free after rebates....Degree men's deo, Dove men's and women's deos, the 3 Suave items mostly because they gave me points/cash back on two or more platforms.
So just on the Ibotta earnings I had a $47.79 moneymaker. The $21.49 total earned on Fetch/Shop Kick/Swag Bucks will get counted as I cash out for gift cards on those platforms.
Everything bought will get used/eaten/drank or will be given to the food bank or sold at my next stockpile sale.
Not bad at all. Even with using $35 of my earnings this month I am at $192.19 in rebates from Ibotta for April.
