Rewards App: How does ENDORSE work?

Screen Shot 2013-02-06 at 11.33.12 AMIf you like using ibotta to earn money back on the groceries you’re already planning to purchase, then you’ll want to know about the Endorse app for your smartphone or tablet. Trust me.

Endorse is a FREE mobile app that gives you weekly offers from 10% to 100% back on items when you shop in ANY store.

What you’ll love about Endorse

  • Earn between 10% and 100% cash back (with limited maximum amounts) on your favorite items. Many rewards are not brand-specific (10% back on any brand toothpaste, 100% back on any brand diapers), while others require the purchase of certain brands.
  • You can earn your reward no matter where you shop – including online shopping!
  • Offers can be shared with your friends so that they can save, too!
  • You can submit receipts up to 7 days after your purchase.
  • The more receipts you load, the more personalized your offers become.
  • You’ll also earn points with every receipt to benefit a school project of your choice through

Important Details about Endorse

  • Offers refresh on Thursday of every week.
  • PayPal is not required. If you link your PayPal account you can have your rewards credited at any time! Otherwise you’ll be able to cash out once your total balance reaches $25.
  • The percentage back is calculated after coupon savings, based on your final price. That allows you to earn cash back on multiple items on the same receipt.
  • Supported mobile devices include:
    For iOS (iOS 5 or higher): iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, iPad (3rd generation+), iPad Mini, iPod Touch (5th generation+).
    For Android: Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, Motorola Triumph, Motorola Droid, Motorola Asix, HTC. Many other Android devices are compatible, as long as they are an Android version 2.2 or higher, and contain rear-facing camera.

At the recommendation of a few B2B readers, I’ve been testing Endorse on my smartphone for the past few weeks. I LIKE IT. It’s similar to ibotta, but not identical (submit receipts using your mobile device, etc). And I’ve been able to submit receipts for many of the things I’ve planned to purchase anyway. I have especially enjoyed upgrading offers to 100% back on coffee and diapers (any brand) – and I’ve made sure to take advantage of those!

Generally, it takes about one day to see your submitted offers credited in your account, but they do appear. And occasionally, Endorse will even ask if you you plan on buying select items in the coming week, so they can give you offers you’re sure to use. In the past three weeks, I’ve earned $17 back on my groceries; I’ll take it!

Give Endorse a try! You have nothing to lose…and a little bit of money to gain!

    Can only log on through Facebook. I do kit or plan on getting a Facebook account. Sounds like it would be good but I would rate very low just because of that!

    I wonder how they can match up a coupon with a purchase if the receipt has 100 items on it and the coupons all show generically at the bottom of the receipt? I’ve only submitted two offers so far and both met the max criteria after coupons. Just curious to hear from anyone that’s submitted one where before coupons it met the max but after coupons it didn’t. Thanks :)

    I’m a little (ok alotta) confused but what happens if you don’t have a paypal account? Do they mail you a check after $25? Thanks in advance.

    Do we claim offers before making a purchase? I downloaded the app but I am still unclear. Thanks all.

      You don’t really need to claim the offer until you upload your receipt (unless you’re increasing the value of one by sharing on Facebook).
