Lucky for me, the Ibotta Days Bonus coincided nicely with QVC's Christmas in July weekend. I was going to be shopping anyway so YAY Bonus. I wasn't thinking when I placed my last order, it was for some goodies that won't be delivered till November and QVC won't bill till they ship. I got the email that the transaction was pending and read the fine print. I will still get my cash back on the order plus the bonus but not till my order ships or QVC's order cancellation date passes. UGH, I should have split up my purchases better, this wait will drive me crazy.
I know what you mean. I have made several online purchases from Sam's. The 90 days pending period starts. One rebate wasn't awarded until the 90th day while the other was received a week after items were delivered... word to the wise keep track of your balance as you receive rebates from online purchases with long pending periods.
