When I just added an offer on CVS it says linking is only option for cash back. Is this new?
I know I had issues that CVS in-store option disappeared last week so is this linking what's to come or just me. By the way I did notice that online and in store swapped places when you click on CVS and need to pick between online and in store choices.
I'm assuming I can still do receipts until the receipt option disappears. I'm now scared my receipts won't go thru after the warning when adding offers
@dramaspoiler I just added an offer to see what would happen and it worked as usual. No mention of linking whatsoever. Hopefully this was just a glitch that you experienced and not a glimpse of what is to come!
I am getting a pop-up every time I click on an offer in my CVS in store gallery. But I still see the "submit receipt " under the link your account header. I think you can still submit and avoid linking (maybeIshouldsay, Ihope). I would seriously rethink ever going to CVS for Ibotta offers if I have to link. CVS extra care card is such a pain to use effectively anyway, I don't think I would continue the aggravation with this added hoop to jump through.
Update. I went to CVS today and made a purchase- Health-ade pop. I bought 4 as CVS had a bogo50% off and a $1 off dq and Ibotta had $.50 up to 5x. I wanted to use my Xtra bucks. I clicked the submit a receipt instead and got my $2 rebate within 15min. So even though they want us to link, it's not required.
Meijer used to have a popup for me, and it was annoying AF. But eventually they gave me an option to tell them to quit asking me if I wanted to link. And now things be copacetic.
I'm still able to submit receipt as of yesterday. I think when they swap the in store and online position the offers swapped also (missing some offers) and the message that was intended for online require linking is showing up in my in store when adding of offers. I guess as long as I can submit receipt at least I can get some offers. I hate linking because you at mercy of it matching and what happens if I forget to pick an offer before I purchase.
@dramaspoiler I still don't have access to CVS in-store offers 😕 but I wonder if this weirdness that you're experiencing is somehow connected to this weirdness with the "ending soon" banner that I noticed a little while ago (while checking to see if I could access CVS in-store offers)..?
