I coupled the Mobil 1 rebate with the Walmart App $5 Credit and Ibotta.

This is what I ended up with...

Item Qty Total
Mobil 1 5W-30 Extended Performance Full Synthetic Motor Oil, 5 qt.
$23.99 $20.80 1 $20.80
Pace Chunky Salsa Mild, 16 oz.
$1.98 $1.72 2 $3.44
Great Value Double Zipper Sandwich Bags, 50 Count
$1.62 $1.41 2 $2.82
Kraft Mayo Real Mayonnaise, 30 fl oz, Jar
$2.98 $2.58 1 $2.58
Heinz Mayo Cage Free Eggs 30oz
$3.48 $3.01 1 $3.01

Total with tax was $38.00

Then I got a lot of credits...

Mobil 1 Rebate - $12.00
Mobil 1 Ibotta Reb - $5.00
Walmart App Credit - $5.00
Heinz Mayo - $3.50
Kraft Mayo - $1.00
Pace Salsa - $0.50
Oil Ibotta Rebate - $0.25
Add'l Ibotta Rebate $5.00
Add'l Grocery Rebate $0.25

Total Cost $5.50 with free shipping

I'm not a fan of Ibotta but I figure that if I just tie in my purchases at Walmart and Kroger towards a $20 total, I should be able to enjoy some free money. Also, I enjoy being cheap.

Ibotta is similar to a cashback or coupon app. If you meet certain purchase conditions, added the offers and scanned your receipts, then it gives you a rebate back. You can redeem your cashback later for a PayPal credit after meeting a minimum amount or for some gift cards. It works pretty well. Some offers are generic, some are for specific products, some are specific products but not retailer-specific, some are specific products at specific retailers.

Check their current offers:

Motor oil-wise, about 2 years ago I was able to get 4 jugs of Pennzoil Plat 5w30 HM for about $12 for 20 quarts after all rebates. I don't use the app anymore though because my buying habits just don't work well with it.

^ This is exactly it.

I have found that Ibotta is good for about $20 a year in rebates. I don't look at it on a daily basis because the app tends to focus on expensive items that I don't generally buy.

However they do have some strange opportunities when it comes to Mobil and Pennzoil products, and if you buy enough items in a short spurt, your rebates can become worth the effort.

This time was pretty much a lightning strike. The Mobil 1 rebate has just started. Walmart offered $5 for downloading their app and buying $35 worth, and Ibotta sent me an email stating that they would add an extra $5 if I purchased six items over the next couple of days. I ended up with $28.50 in rebates overall and about $11.50 of it was with Ibotta.

I'll have to wait until the amount gets up to $20 and then withdraw it onto my Paypal account. Again no biggie, but I'm the guy who literally sells his old kitchen sink on Craigslist because I know that someone out there will buy it for $25... and of course, someone did.
