Scam

Does anybody think this site is a scam. I am having multiple issues getting my earnings and the help section is a joke. I have been waiting since Friday for answers. Apparently I had a old account which my phone number is attached so I used my daughters number ok got in finally added my bank account hit withdrawn earnings and guess what says there’s a error. I am beyond mad. I bought the thanksgiving items for a neighbor in need I only want my money back. Also they sent the email when i added my bank account to the original email not the one that I just used then it says they use swills it’s says here they use plaid. All I want is this money then I’m done. Thanks.

not a scam. I don't know what swill and plaid are. I use my bank and it goes through with no problem. I don't have paypal.  they get 1000s of emails a day so you will have to wait for them to get to you but you can also go in the ibotta facebook page and send a message thats quicker.

I have been coomunicating with them, sent proof of correct old number in a screen shot, they reply back saying my old number ends in 1990 and is through bellsouth. I have gotten many prior redemptions successfully,  but when a number change happens i lose out, this time $34. 

Last time an account under my spouse name and number lost too because they wouldn't change my number, always give us the correct old number, but i did!!!

Loved I botta, now i cant get my money ,cant use it anymore...

I am sorry to hear so many people are having problems.  I have been an Ibotta user for many years.  I haven't had ANY of the problems that are being posted on this site.  Yes, Customer Support is slow.  I suspect they are trying as hard as they can to get through as many requests as possible.  

I don't send my earnings to my bank.  I have used PayPal for years with no problem.  I have only used Walmart Grocery Pickup once.  I don't use the Chrome Extension.  I don't use Gift Cards.

Sending to your Bank is new.  Walmart Grocery Pickup is relatively new (the past year).  The Chrome Extension is new.  Gift Cards used to be Pay with Ibotta and allowed credit cards.  Now you must use a debit card.

A lot of NEW features have been added recently and it seems that most of the problems are related to these new features.  Then add thousands of new users in November and you can see why it takes so long to get a response back from Customer Service. 

You will get your money.  You just need to be patient and wait for your requests to be processed.

I appreciate that some of you are frustrated.  Their customer service folks are a bit overwhelmed right now.  All of us are waiting up to a week for tickets to be worked.  I am not sure which cashback sites you all use that have phone support, but none of the ones I do have that.  I have open tickets with coupons.com and FETCH for over a week now.   And they are the first ticket I have opened with each.

If you can have a bit more patience, you may find that ibotta is probably the best thing going as far as grocery rebating.   And when there is a mixup involving multiple accounts or phone numbers, etc, unfortunately those sometimes take a while to resolve via 'tickets'.

This is really nothing new.   Many companies are similar.   Phone support is not cheap, and any additional costs cut into the deals we are able to receive. ibotta is not for everyone.  maybe it is not for some of you.  I also would be frustrated if I could not withdraw my money, but I would like to think I would have a modicum of patience.
