Ibotta Helps Families Save on Back to School Essentials with Summer Savings Event

Cash back platform offsets costs of school notebooks, foods to fill lunch boxes and household cleaners

DENVER, July 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Checking off back to school lists can be costly, especially this year given increased prices from inflation. Leading digital rewards platform, Ibotta, is partnering with top brands to help offset costs during its Back to School Essentials event. Running from July 25 through August 31, Ibotta is delivering cash back offers on school notebooks, lunch box treats, vitamins, beauty supplies, and more.

According to the National Retail Federation, consumers are adjusting shopping behaviors due to the recent spike in prices. Given the current state of the U.S. economy, back to school shoppers are even more focused on finding ways to save, compared to years past. Recent NRF back to school research found that 43% are doing more comparative shopping online, 42% are shopping for sales more often, and 24% are using more coupons.

“While back to school season is always an exciting time for students and parents, it’s undeniable that the cost of physical supplies can be a hardship for many households,” said Richard Donahue, Chief Marketing Officer at Ibotta. “Rising prices are an increasing concern for families, and Ibotta wants to ensure we’re doing our part to offer some much needed relief. Through our Back to School Essentials event, we’re hoping that we can help families set their students up for success this school year.”
