Maximizing Cashback Savings with Aibeta: A Step-by-Step Guide to Saving Money

I’ve earned over 17,000 in cashback from using Aibeta over the last five years. Here’s a step by step tutorial on how Aibeta works and how you can use it to save some money.

Alright, so the first thing you wanna do is to download the ibot app and you can download it from either the apple or Google play store. Once you have the app downloaded, you’re gonna wanna enter this code at sign up because it’s actually going to give you an extra $5 when you scan your first receipt. Alright, then once you’re fully into the app, what I recommend is adding your favorite stores or the stores that you shop at most frequently up appear to your favorites list. Doing this makes it a little bit easier to browse offers for stores that you actually shop at. Once you have that set up, you’re gonna wanna click on one of the stores. For this example, we’re gonna click on HEB. Once you click on a specific store, all of the offers will pop up. And you can see up here that they are sectioned off into specific categories. These are really helpful so that you don’t have to scroll through every offer looking for a specific item.

Now all offers, as you will see, have this little plus sign here. In order to add an offer to your ibot list, you have to click that. Once you click that plus sign, it’ll turn into a checkmark in order to earn cash back from an item, you have to make sure that the offer is clipped because if it’s not clipped and add it to your list, you can’t receive the cash back.

Now, a huge thing about I bought a rebates is that they can expire at any time, even if you have the offers clipped. So my best advice is that if you think you are going to redeem any I bought a offer at any time, clip it I bought. It has a set amount of clips and redemptions for each rebate. So as soon as you see an item that you’re remotely interested in, clip it. When a rebate is getting close to expiration, they’ll put a little timer on it. So that’s something to be mindful of. So even if a rebate is removed from your main list, you wanna check your list of Clift rebates because it still might be available. That just means the rebate is no longer available to clip. But since you already clipped it, you still have the chance to redeem it before it expires. Now this is an example of what your list of clipped offers looks like. As you can see, it still source them by category. Now, it’s really hard to see on green screen, but at the bottom of your lists on ibata, there will be a little like list symbol here with the number and that’s what you click on in order to get to all of your clipped offers. Now you can’t see it here, but in the right hand corner of this screen, there is an hourglass. Once you click that hourglass, it’ll take you here. And again, you can’t see it, but there is a little scanner up at the top. You were going to use that scanner to scan the barcode of every single item that you pick up to ensure that it attaches to the proper rebate.

Now someone who has been using ibata for over 5 years, take it from me that you’re always going to want to double check, even if it takes a couple of extra seconds, that the item that you’re grabbing attaches to the rebate, nothing is more frustrating than trying to upload your receipt and realizing you grab the wrong item. With that being said, I think it’s a good time to point out that most of the ibot rebates can only be redeemed by going in store and purchasing the product and getting a physical receipt. However, some stores allow you to link your loyalty card to that store on ibata, but I don’t recommend it as it usually takes a little bit longer to get your cash back.

Again, it’s hard to see on here, but down at the bottom of each store, there is a button that says submit receipt. Once you’ve made your purchase and you’re ready to submit your receipt, you’ll click that button and then you’re gonna take a picture of your receipt. Once you’ve submitted your receipt, the system will process it and it will look for any cashback matches. Now the system should find those matches automatically. However, it’s not perfect. Now, for whatever reason, if the system does not find the items on your receipt or credit to the wrong amount. You can click on this button right down here that says I’m missing cashback. You can then go into the list and select the item that it was supposed to find, scan it and distinguish how many were on the receipt. That should fix the issue. But if it doesn’t, you’ll have to submit a support ticket, which I’ll talk a little bit more about here in a second.

Alright, now let’s go back to after you submit your receipt and it processes correctly, all of your earnings will be added here. Once you get $20 or more, you can cash out to your bank account, Paypal or for a gift card. I always cash out immediately every time I earn over $20 I bought, it is not a bank. It’s not a savings account. I promise you, do not. Keep your money in here.

Cash out as soon as you can. Now, that’s pretty much the basics to Aibata. You wanna clip your offers, go in store, scan it, make sure it attaches to the offer. I submit your receipt and then cash out your earnings. Anytime I show you guys deals with my bottom, that’s what I’m doing. I’m gonna give you guys a little bit more information about some of the features on the app that you can utilize or wanna pay attention to.

The first thing is offer limits. So not every I bought a rebate has the same limits. Some offers are limit 1 and some can be up to limit five. The details under each offer distinguish how many times it can be redeemed in a single transaction. So like this one right here can be redeemed up to five times in a single transaction. I also want to point out that offers can reset. So let’s say I purchased this product and submitted my receipt at 5:00. Well, 24 hours later, at 5:00, again, this offer may pop back up. So once that offer resets, I can go back to the store, buy another one, and then submit my receipt and get credit again. I cannot submit the same receipt that I redeemed 24 hours prior. But again, not every offer will reset and a lot of them do.

Also in the details of every offer, you wanna make sure that you’re looking at what sizes and what varieties qualify. This ties back to scanning the item using the ibot scanner to ensure that it attaches to the rebate that you think it’s supposed to. The details also tell you what store this rebate is valid at.

Another really cool thing about Abada is that they offer bonuses. And more times than not, these bonuses are when you redeem a certain amount of offers, you’re gonna earn an extra cash back bonus. So I didn’t complete this offer, but if I were to redeem 65 offers within 10 days, they would give me an additional 10 dollar bonus.

Something important to note though is that not everyone gets the exact same bonus. Typically, the amount of offers you need to redeem in order to earn a certain amount vary. I bought it also recently just changed their bonuses in the sense that now every item that you redeem counts as an offer towards the bonus. It used to be if you bought five of the same item on one receipt, but it was all under one offer, it would only count once. So that’s a really nice change.

You can also shop by category on ibata. As you can see, it has an online shopping. I don’t really mess with that, but that is an option. The last major thing I want to touch on is how to submit a support ticket. Now, if you need to submit a ticket for a receipt issue, you can go to that specific transaction and down at the bottom it’ll say contact, I bought a care. You’ll submit that kind of ticket directly through there. If you need to submit a different kind of ticket, maybe you’re unable to withdraw your earnings for whatever reason, you’re gonna wanna go to your profile and down below, you’re gonna wanna go to help. You’re then gonna click on Visit Help Center and it’s gonna take you to this page right here where you’re gonna click on those three lines, this will pop up and that’s where you’ll submit your request.

I know that was a ton of information, but I hope it was helpful for those who are new or looking to get started saving with ibata, definitely save this video for your reference. And I’ll also try to pin it at the top of my profile.
