There are two ways to get cash back on dollar-store purchases. You can take your pick, or take advantage of both during a single transaction:
Ibotta is a free app for Android and Apple devices that enables you to earn cash rebates on purchases — not just online, but also at many brick-and-mortar stores. Those stores include Dollar General, Dollar Tree and Family Dollar.
If you’re new to Ibotta, sign up for an account and download the app. To see what cash rebates Ibotta is currently offering for purchases from those three dollar stores, launch the app and select a chain from the list of retailers.
