Unused Bonus Bank

How could ibotta apply unused bonuses to a bank enabling users to transfer unused bonuses into bank in the manner similar to an employers offering vacation sharing.  What kind of incentive would entice users to use if it was offered?

This was an idea from a reply mentioned in a post I wrote. And I'm curious to see what other ideas community users can generate.

What are you thoughts on this?

Details.   What is an unused bonus>  Do you mean you would earn a MWMM, but you would like give it to charity or something instead of using it in your account?

That’s a nice idea, so long as it doesn’t impact future bonuses.

I would like to be able to remove unwanted offers, or hide categories that are not applicable to me.

This may be more trouble than it is worth, but here goes:

You buy items with Ibotta rebates.  You earn cash from those rebates.  You donate the items to a charity, you get a receipt showing the items donated, you scan the receipt and earn more cash.  Ibotta takes the donation. 

Win-Win-Win!

Maybe money would be difficult to keep track of, but if you donate items to a charity, maybe you get a count towards bonuses.  This way, no money is passed, but you still earn towards something.

I don't manage any bonuses so I'm not sure what goes into them, I can pass along the idea though.
