My connected loyalty accounts do work, specifically one for a local grocery store called Brookshire Brothers. I enter my phone number associated with the store account which uses my store coupons, and gives me my Ibotta offers too.
@nlw7765 Most of the linked card offers work - but sometimes you won't get credit for everything you bought, and you don't get the "any" brand offers (.10¢ generally speaking) if you don't add them to your card first (someone correct me if I'm wrong thx). Did you ever buy something and then the offer comes out a day later? When your card isn't linked, sometimes you can add the offer and scan the receipt, and you will get credit for the purchase.
Here's a step by step of how I fixed my issue with my linked accounts not always working with certain rewards or offers.
