Is it always best to use the in app pay feature? At Walmart for example?

Or is paying the conventional way.with the physical card and paper receipt better? In terms of savings of course.

@ManchVegas @FelskyNY @Rickibotta  I'm wondering if you can use online receipts displayed to scan to Ibotta. On Walmart.com and the Walmart app, it's possible to display the TC# through Purchase History Details. On the Walmart app, a receipt can be displayed. Is it possible to use those TC#s displayed since Ibotta only needs that to submit your purchase?

When shopping at Walmart I like the convenience of linking my Walmart pay with Ibotta. That is my personal preference.  However sometimes all the items i purchase are not credited and I have the manually enter the receipt.   

Paying full price is optional

I prefer paying at the register and getting a paper receipt so that I can scan it soon after. This way offers are credited faster. I like the quick cha-ching.

It's definitely more convenient. But I think it needs to be used judiciously. For example, I lost out on 4 bucks because I used Walmart pay in the Ibotta app. I bought 2 items. I should have received 4 bucks back. But the item had a coupon around the neck of the bottle. Which totalled 4 bucks. According to the rules you can't combine. But that wouldn't have been known had I done the old fashioned paper receipt method.

You can use either it's up to you. If you want a paper receipt using walmart pay pay with a penny or a small amount first then use walmart pay and you'll get a receipt

@ManchVegas  I use Gift Cards in the ibotta app, formerly Pay with Ibotta.  You can either use your Ibotta earnings or have it come off your linked Debit Card.  You earn .5 % (which is pennies) but it also counts toward the bonuses, and I love the fact that I don't have to go out of pocket.

Minimum is $20 though, but I rarely have a hard time spending $20 at Walmart.

I am with Dean on this one.  Linking is the de-vil!!

Plus with WM, you literally just scan the receipt bar code. 

In fact, I only have to scan the receipt for Meijer and Kroger as well.

I don't ever have to scan item bar codes at any of those stores.

I forget if I do with Target, but I don't think I scan items there either.

(But I guess you benefit by using PWI; I have never used it though)
