Is "PRIZE Winner Notification for Ibotta's In-Crowd Giveaway" email a scam?

I received an email saying I won a Prize for Ibotta's In-Crowd Giveaway.  It was not sent from Ibotta but from:  Telicia Kuchan,  Merchandising Manager, Universal Promotions, Inc.   It includes instructions on claiming the prize which, of course, involves downloading something.  Although I would love to win this prize I am very suspicious that it is a scam so I am reaching out to see if anyone has ever received anything like this or if Ibotta can comment on it's authenticity before I do anything.  Thanks in advance!
