It seems that everything i buy at walmart is a dud with ibotta.I mean ,none of the items i purchase get a cash back.And i mean nothing.I guess if i want this app to work for me then i have to change the way i shop and i dont think my husband would like that to well.Ive really been busy scanning many many reciepts and i get nithing for them.Im really dissapointed by this.Does anyone else have this problem ? Or am i doing something wrong? I just dont know.
@cindyhammons I’m not sure how to answer your question because it sounds like you might be skipping a few steps. Unlike some savings apps, Ibotta has specific offers available at specific stores, which you must add to your list, prior to submitting a receipt. Once you’ve reached the point of submitting a receipt, you will already know exactly what you’re supposed to receive because you selected the offers. Visit https://blog.ibotta.com/tips-tricks/how-to-use-ibotta-a-complete-guide/ for a complete guide to using Ibotta.

You are correct, you have to change the way you shop if you want to maximize your savings.
Ibotta is a marketing company. They are paid to advertise products from manufacturers. Because of this, many of the items are new.
For me, when I make my shopping list, I start with Ibotta and include any items I might want to try. Then I add what I need. I include items from other apps and what coupons I have.
When I go to the store, I always scan the item in Ibotta to make sure it is still there, verify it is selected and that I bought the right number for the offer.
After I purchase my items, I scan the receipt, most of the time right in the store.
Hope you this helps.
