Ibotta phone app

Ibotta is one of my favorite ways to make extra money. Since I began using this rebate shopping app on my iPhone, I’ve made $99.60 in lifetime earnings in less than a year. And the money I’ve earned, I’ve put toward paying off my Lexus. Basically this is how it works. You download the app here (it’s available on iOS and Android). The app is the only way you can submit a receipt. Then you browse the stores and unlock rebates by completing simple tasks. Often times it’s just watching a short video, looking at a recipe or taking a survey. Then you go shopping and verify your purchases by scanning the product barcodes and submitting a photo. Next watch your cash pile up to be redeemed for cash or gift cards (once you hit $20)…and it’s not hard! Right now if you join Ibotta with my referral code (orouxif) and redeem your first rebate, you’ll get $10! You can do that here.

Ebates Coupons and Cash Back

Ebates another easy way to make extra money. It’s a rewards website where members an earn cash back on online purchases. Since I began using Ebates in May 2015 I’ve earned $148.07 as of March 2016, which has been put directly on debt repayment. I use it to purchase my makeup from Macy’s, buy flowers for the neighbor who pet sits for us, make hotel reservations through Expedia, buy Groupons… pretty much everything I’m ever going to buy is available on Ebates.


I’m really surprised that CapitalOne Investing doesn’t get more attention in the PF community. After doing personal research to find a good online brokerage firm, I found CapitalOne Investing to be easy to use and very inexpensive with only $6.95 per trade and not minimum buys (I only own four stocks in GE). I’m not a big stock market player, but I do find it fun to have a few stocks and watch them grow. You can sign up with my referral link here and get up to a $600 bonus.


CaptialOne is my go to for my savings account. They pay a higher interest rate than others, and often offer signup bonuses. For instance you can sign up for a checking or savings account with my referral link here and get a $25 bonus.
