FAQs 

Q: How do I get my free Thanksgiving turkey?

A: If you are an active Ibotta Saver, all you have to do is refer a friend to Ibotta by 11/23/2021. Once they sign up with the app, your $15 turkey offer will automatically unlock after they successfully sign up. Your friend will get the free Turkey Offer as well! The turkey offer will be available within two hours after your friend successfully signs up.

You can also get $10 for every additional friend (limit 19) you refer during our free Thanksgiving promotion. Each friend will need to submit a receipt for you to unlock the $10 referral bonus. Read more about how to refer a friend and unlock your free Turkey Offer.

Q: I want a bigger turkey for my family. Can I get one?

A: You are welcome to purchase a whole turkey (any brand, any size) at a higher price and use the $15 cash back towards the cost. Always check the offer details and scan the barcode in store to ensure the turkey you've chosen qualifies.

Q: How many people does the dinner feed? 

A: The products have been selected to feed a family of 5. But check serving sizes to ensure they meet the needs of your family.

Q: I don't have anyone to refer. Can I still get the free turkey?
A: Sorry. Referring a friend is a requirement for this year's campaign. The rest of the free Thanksgiving items are available for you to earn cash back without a referral. Get your fixings while supplies last!

Q: My friend registered on the website or Browser Extension. Do I still get the free turkey?
A: No can do. Any friends you refer need to download the Ibotta mobile app and sign up on a unique device to qualify.
 

Q: How do I check if the item(s) I've chosen are eligible?

A: If you’re shopping in store you can scan the barcode of the item in the offer details to check that it matches. If you’re shopping online from your computer using our browser extension, the browser extension will highlight products that qualify for cash back right on the page.

Found a barcode that doesn't scan? See: Help: The barcode does not match.

Q: My local store does not stock one of the offers. What can I do?

A: Supplies for the Thanksgiving offers are limited and could change at any time during the campaign.

Q: An offer in my app is showing as “No Longer Available”. Can I still redeem it?

A: No, unfortunately due to high demand, that specific offer is either sold out or no longer available. If you were able to add the offer to Your list prior, please review the offer details to verify whether or not it has expired for you. If the offer has not expired, you may still purchase the product and submit the receipt for that cash back.

Q: But your Terms and Conditions state ‘Requires purchase of 10 participating products and Ibotta redemption to get cash back.’

A: That statement refers to what you need to do to get the entire Thanksgiving dinner for free. If you only want a few of the items, that’s totally fine too! Don't worry, you’ll still get cash back on the eligible items that you buy.

Q: I don’t live near a Walmart. Can I still get the offers?

A: These offers are only available at Walmart in-store or via Pickup or Delivery. You can visit Walmart.com to determine if Walmart delivers to your address.

Q: I live in Hawaii / Alaska / Puerto Rico. Can I still get these offers?

A: Yes. However, MSRPs tend to be a little higher in these states so items might not work out as a fully free meal, check item prices before you buy.

Q: I am quarantining / I don’t feel safe going to the store. How do I get the offers? 

A: Try Pick Up or Delivery. In the Ibotta app, simply link your account in the Pick Up & Delivery gallery, add the offers to Your list, then select "Shop Online" directly in the app to move forward with your purchase. You can also access the offers in our gallery at Ibotta.com. Log in required. Once you've added your offers, select "Shop Retailer" to move forward with your purchase.


Q: Can I get my Walmart order delivered through Instacart and still get the rewards?

A: No. You must shop directly through Walmart Pick Up & Delivery or in-store. Instacart has an entirely separate gallery of offers available in the Ibotta app and browser extension.

Q: I thought the items were free. Don't I have to pay for them first?

A: Yes. You will not find any items for free in the Ibotta app or on Walmart.com. Ibotta will give you cash back equivalent to the average MSRP for the 10 offers in our free Thanksgiving campaign. Add the items to Your list in the app or web browser extension, then shop to get the cash back. MSRP may vary at different locations.

Example 1: Let's say you choose a turkey that costs LESS THAN Ibotta's $15 free Turkey Offer. That means you'll get to keep the difference.

Example 2: Let's say you choose a turkey that costs MORE THAN Ibotta's $15 free Turkey Offer. That means you'll end up paying the difference.


Q: Do I have to buy all the items to qualify?

A: No. There are 10 individual offers in this campaign for you to browse. Feel free to redeem one, some or all of them. But hurry! There are limited quantities and they will only be available while supplies last!

Q: Do all of the items need to be purchased during the same shopping trip?

A: No. You can redeem any offer during any shopping trip before the campaign ends as long as the offer is still available in-app. Pay close attention to offer expiration dates and availability. 

Q: Can I get more than one of each offer?

A: No. Each item is limited to one redemption per Saver.

Q: Help: I waited two hours and still don't see my free Turkey Offer.

A: Try force quitting the app, wait a few minutes, then reopen. If you still don't see the offer, please reach out to Ibotta Care for assistance.

Q: Help! I returned my items and my Ibotta credit has been reversed!

A: If you return an item, your Ibotta credit will be reversed. If there is something wrong with the item you purchased, talk to the retailer about offering a substitution rather than a refund to prevent your credit from being reversed.

Q: Help! I signed up for Ibotta, earned my free Thanksgiving dinner, but I am unable to withdraw my earnings.

A: As a security measure, we have increased the validation period for new Ibotta accounts. Please try to withdraw your earnings again in a few days. If that isn't successful, reach out to Ibotta Care for assistance. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.


Q: How long will these free offers be available?

A: The offers will be available beginning 11/1/2021 through 11/24/2021. To unlock the free Turkey Offer, your referred friend must successfully sign up by 11/23/2021. Supplies are limited, so redeem the offers before it’s too late!

Looked in my Ibbota app and clipped all the rebate offers for the Thanksgiving. Didn't not get a rebate offer for the turkey though

@Saintk73 to unlock the turkey offer you'll need to refer a friend to Ibotta.

This is so generous of Ibotta and Walmart to do. It really helps stretch the budget for Thanksgiving dinner. I already ordered my freebies for pickup tonight and just want to say thanks for this great offer. I hope everyone else is able to participate.

@Saintk73  Read the first few FAQ. It explains that you need to refer someone to get the turkey offer.

Not so free, is it, just follow the instructions and have a friend sign up with Ibotta.

Well it doesn't cost money, and we do actively try to grow our business, so I think it's a fair way to go about it.

@Dierigj  It’s free for pescatarians like me 🥳.  I am still going to try to refer someone and score a free turkey for someone in need.

@LaraL  So the first referral doesn't require submitting a receipt to get the $15 turkey offer? Is that correct?

Posting tip: Add viewable photos using the toolbar's camera option.

Does not require submitting a receipt, that is correct.
