Editor’s Note: Supplies ran out, and Ibotta Days has concluded. But there’s still some good news. Ibotta has a new promotion called Friendsgiving. You can earn $50 for referring five friends. Not bad, right?

These days, it’s rare I spend money on anything that doesn’t earn me some type of cash back.

My go-to is my rewards credit card, which grants me points for travel. Super passive. I love it. Then I stack the savings with Ibotta, an app that rewards me in cold, hard cash.

I took notes from my co-worker, Colleen Rice, who’s earned nearly $300 to-date.

Back in May, I started using it on groceries, but since then, more than 30 additional retailers have joined in on the rewards, and I’ve racked up nearly $100.

I don’t want to say I’m excited for holiday shopping this year… because I know it’s going to drain my bank account… but I’m excited to earn cash back on all my purchases.

And with this promotion, I’ll be able to bank even more money back.
