Thank you, ibotta, for making "any item" offers count/eligible toward the recent rounds of bonuses. I really hope this is the new-norm!
Can you stack these "any item" offers with other offers? I thought I'd get credit for these 2 when I bought the items pictured but appears not. I had separate offers for Sparkling Ice and Gorton's I did get credit for. I even tried scanning bar codes in store for the "any items" but couldn't get any to match. How do you know what satisfies the "any items"?
Bummer about your disappointment/surprise. Maybe some of the following will be helpful:
I hope something on this list helps you! Please tag me if you would like me to explain further or post a pic of examples.
I was at the correct store, Jewel, that had the Any Brand offers.
I have submitted a ticket to have the 2 items included. Unfortunately, it probably won't help me reach my Cash Back Bouquet Bonus (still need 8 items in 3 days and was hoping I'd have 2 less with these "any brand" credited). 😞
@Derf Have you already used the app to request the item(s) to be added? This may go faster than your ticket:
Click on the relevant "Any Item" offer.
Scroll down to where is asks to check the barcode.
Scan the barcode....if it states "does not match," do a rescan to activate a new screen that will ask; "Should this product be eligible??
Check YES, then proceed to take a pic of the product as app requests.
Finally, wait for their response in your notification feed. Sometimes it's quick, other times it a couple of days.
If you get it resolved before your ticket is answered, you should close your ticket.
Actually, I wholeheartedly disagree. Before "any offers" were allowed toward the big bonuses, I only needed to fulfill 10, 15, or 18 offers to get these bonuses. Now, because of this "generous" change, I now need a minimum of 36 offers to get these high dollar bonuses. Because I shop for just the wife and me, I no longer am able to fulfill these bonuses.
If we held a vote, I would vote to go back to the original protocol of accepting only true brand offers toward the high dollar bonuses.
Sorry. That's just the way I feel. I don't think I'm the only one who feels this way.
@Aangsparks Yes...that is the drawback on this. If you noticed the date of my original post here (it was 12/22/20), I posted it before ibotta upped the ante regarding number of offers.
But, it is what it is (at least for now). I also suspect that others (maybe even myself) would agree with you about changing it back.
Meanwhile, however, I want to get all the any item offers available to me!
