I pay attention to rebate offers and keep an eye out for clearance products. Coupons and clearance prices are a great way to get Ibotta rebate products for FREE or almost FREE!
Today, I found these RXBar Protein Bars on clearance at Walmart for $1.62. There was a $1.50 cash back rebate from Ibotta making 5 boxes $0.12 each! The Cliff Nut Butter Bars have a $0.75 offer from Ibotta making those $1.85!
I have noticed a lot of grocery items on clearance at my Walmart. I am guessing they are getting close to Inventory time and they are clearing out items. It takes less time to count if you have less to count!
I picked up a Mega Box of Cocoa Puffs for $1.49, two boxes of Dunkaroos for $1.82 each (minus another $1.00/2 coupon) and two boxes of Cascadian Farm Organic Granola for $.98 each (minus a $1.00/2 coupons.com submission), all since the beginning of June.
If your Walmart is about to do Inventory, you may find some great deals, too.
I have a separate notebook that I go and write my weekly deals for each store that I coupon at.
I then search through my apps Ibotta, Fetch, Coupons.com and write those deals down .
I clip my coupons and physically write the item, the actual price, the discount amount and what my final total will be so that I can see before I shop how much I will spend and save to make sure it's the best deal. I then compare stores to see which store will give me the best deal overall . It's my time consuming but once you get into a grove it's very therapeutic lol it's my Saturday night routine now.
I Use the Krazy Coupon Lady app as a rule. There are always Ibotta deals that are MoneyMakers, Meaning you come out ahead and anything over the price of the actual product is credited towards your total order. There are two other apps very similar to the Krazy Coupon Lady, passion for savings and free stuff finder. These apps give you step-by-step instructions on how to get the best deals on certain items every week. They use weekly sales with coupon stacking with rebate apps like Ibotta, fetch and shop kicks to get items for free or even better, a money maker.
