Credit for items I didn't buy?

Hello all, TIA for any help. I've had a handful of issues with the app over the last few days. I've gotten credit twice for something I didn't purchase.

1. The Any Item offer for diaper rash cream at Food Lion. I did purchase a 'baby' item, Gerber Oatmeal, the day it said I got the credit, but definitely not diaper cream.

2. Kellogg's Bonus for buying three boxes of Special K from Target. I did buy Special K from Walmart grocery-pickup and edited my cart a few times, so I don't know if maybe some wires got crossed?

Anyway, just wondering if anyone else has had an issue with this.

@saverraver  Sometimes the "any" offers will attach to other items.  For example, any popcorn attached to chips.  Diaper/baby items will often give you credit for the "any" items if they are in the same baby category.  Any tea was also attaching to random drinks.

Oh, thank you! I wondered if that might be the case, since they were both baby items. 🙂 Thanks again!

Sometimes, "Any Item" offers have a broader data base than you expect.  So there are times when I scanned an item to confirm if it was correct for a particular offer, and an "any item" offer i did not expect also popped up.  Yay!

As for your Kellogg's offer,  I don't know exactly what your offer qualifies for,  but in my experience, sometimes a certain product qualifies for 2 offers with one purchase. That's an exciting moment in the life of an ibotta enthusiast.

Thank you for your reply, that makes sense! I appreciate the help. I like the idea of hitting a bingo without even realizing it, lol.

 

ETA: it was a "buy three boxes of Kellogg's cereal in three separate transactions from Target" bonus deal. I also had an order from Walmart for a specific size of Special K, and I did get that, and edited my cart I have no idea how many times, so I'm thinking maybe it just counted it more than once.
