Re: Merry & Bright Bonus

Last Night I gave myself permission to give up on this one.  I am only a smidge over halfway through.  I am leaving town till nearly New Year's tomorrow morning and will have limited opportunity to shop while visiting my parents.  Last Night I spent almost an hour trying to make iup a Wal mart pick up order to grab after work to finish off a chunk of it and I had trouble getting 12 offers.  So I just decided I could live with not finishing it.  I have too much else going on. 

I suppose I should have seen this coming and spaced them earlier rather than evenly through the month.   But I am so impressed by all of y'all wiping out early.  Y'all GO ON!

@DanyelN  I'm right there with ya!  I'm watching my niece's son the next few days, he's napping so I jumped online for a few minutes to see what's going on.  I tried making a WM p/u list this morning, but was really struggling.  I had 8 for sure, with 6 maybe's.  Thinking I could finish Candy Cane on Sunday if I had 5 or 6 left.  But I'm just burnt out on the same repeat offers.  Honestly if it weren't for the other bonuses throughout the month, I wouldn't even be sitting at 84/140 for Merry & Bright!

As of like Monday I didn't think I was going to get the 140 as I was at 110 but I found out kinda late I'm now cooking new years dinner so I needed to buy a few things and 110 became 123 yesterday and I just went and finished it off today (I hope, since I'm waiting on Food Lion offers which I said I don't do but I still have 2 days if I miss an offer)

Honestly didn't think I could do it and I'm already telling myself if there's a similar one in January I won't chase it

Oh yes,   That is the way to do it.  Usable items are the best,

Adopt me.   All that looks like stuff I would use also.

Well done and congrats!!

At the start of December I just knew I wouldn’t/couldn’t complete my first ever colossal bonus challenge. I’ve done 140 offers in a month before but that was when offers were more plentiful and store shelves were well stocked.

Having said that, I did finish it today and wanted to share some details of how I did it.

Total shopping trips: 29 (vs 25 in November)
Walmart 8
Kroger 7
Target 6
Publix 4
CVS 3
Sam’s Club 1

My total cash back for the month was $314.37. That’s about $100 above my monthly average. Of that total, $94.25 was made from bonuses.

Since I joined in late March 2020 to November 2021, my average monthly bonus total was only $34, so only time will tell if December was a one-off.

@123Save KOO-WULL!! I've never made $300+ in a single month w/Ibotta, and I'm almost 3.5 years into it. my best was $220+ just this past October. I've already made $201+ with a day & a quarter or fifth  left, so if God willing & the creek don't rise I drop the 🔨 on Merry & Bright I'll whup my last record

I really should have known better than to try to finish such a large bonus up at Food Lion yesterday. With all the issues I've had between ibotts and food Lions with the redemption linked to their mvp card, of course I wouldn't get credit for the last trip to put over 140 offers

Uhh
