Android and iPhone users may have heard of iBotta. For those who haven’t: iBotta is a free app that can be downloaded from the Google Play or iTunes store. According to the iBotta description in the app store, “Get paid real cash just for buying your favorite products. Really. Wouldn’t it be great if the best rewards, rebates, coupons, savings and discounts on the brands and products you purchase most often could be turned into instant cash, all on your mobile device?……..Ibotta is the #1 app that puts actual cash into your pocket – and it’s free. Ibotta pays you real cash for buying your favorite products at over 50 stores like Target, Walmart, Burger King, Kroger, Safeway, 7-Eleven, CVS, Home Depot, Whole Foods and more. It’s fun and easy.” In order to verify that the user actually bought a listed product, iBotta must have a picture of your receipt. Cash can be deposited into the users PayPal account or it can be given in the form of a gift card.
Now that you know what iBotta is, take a look at the screenshot below.
This is a screenshot of an info box before the camera screen while taking a picture of your receipt.
iBotta might not be aware of how a calendar works. 12/29/2013 cannot come before 12/05/2013.
iBotta must have meant 12/29/2012 to 12/05/2013 or 11/29/2013 to 12/05/2013 since the screenshot was taken on 12/04/2013.
