Ring up some savings with your smartphone!

A new app goes way beyond mobile coupons. It actually pays you to shop!

Using the i-botta app on your smartphone, choose the products you want to buy. Then i-botta asks you to complete quick tasks like watch a video, learn a fact about the product or take a poll.

Then you can buy the items and snap a picture of your receipt and scan the bar code.

Then i-botta deposits money into your paypal account. That`s real money!

You can still use store and manufacturer coupons.

It takes a tiny bit of effort, but the pay day is worth it!
