This is my very first blog post with an affiliate link to kick off the ‘How to make money with blogs’ part of my story. I have been using Ibotta and have been happy with the offers and payout I get just for shopping for things I buy anyway.
I started in 2016, made $24 pretty fast, but never got around to transferring it to my bank account. When I started this blogging journey, and when I saw how much debt our liabilities added up to, I decided to check it out again.
Started using it a week ago and made $7 already. Which admittedly is not much, but on the other hand I spent 10 or 15 minutes working on it, taking pictures of receipts and bar codes. $7 for 15 minutes of work is $28 per hour.
Today I transferred my full balance ($31) to my paypal account and from there to my bank account, so I can report that that works fine too. Planning on using this ‘free’ money towards debt and get a baby step closer to being debt free 🙂
My next goal is to refer my friends, or my readers to sign up for ibotta. Whoever signs up gets a free $10 start once they redeem their first offer, and I get a kickback to kick off my journey to financial independence. Click here if you want to try ibotta and support me.
Update 1/28/2018: Ibotta only works for readers in the USA. Too bad.
