Using Ibotta APP

I was just wondering if it is necessary or a flaw with the ibotta app that requires restarting in order to receive MWMM or WWB. This idea crossed my mind after reading post by @FelskyNY and MWMM didn't show up until Ibotta app was deleted and reinstalled. I deleted then reinstalled app and their it was my MWMM 1 / 10 so I ask is this by design, a programming error, or random?? Does anyone know? What do you thin

Do anyone care to elaborate on this?

Apparently this is a new glitch. I've been able to refresh it by simply deleting the app's cache (not deleting all the data, only the cache). That simple trick (which does not require a new login) also seems to update my offers number toward bonuses. Annoying, but it is easier than reinstalling, logging back in, or living without updated info.

@LaraL   Not sure if you are aware - but now it looks like it was not just me that had to delete the app and reinstall to see my bonus as @OBSHOP had the same problem.

Looking into this. If anyone else is having this issue please add it to the thread.

I too cleared my cache and then the MW appeared.

Not sure if this is related, but last week the WW came around 1pm EDT for me instead of 9am. Others have commented that their bonuses showed up late, or after they made a purchase.

Usually all I have to do is force close the app, clear app cache, reopen app and the bonuses pop up.  But I knew I had choice bonuses today, so when the usual trick didn't work, I logged out and back in.  That didn't work.  So I logged back out, force closed the app, cleared cache, restarted my phone, *then* the bonuses showed up.  

I've also noticed that the tracking for bonuses are back to normal, meaning that they are caught up when I get my notification my offers have credited.  I don't have to force close the app or wait hrs from them to catch up.  So I'm wondering if tinkering on one end, caused a glitch somewhere else??

Ok good to know, it could very well be related.

How do you clear the cache?

It makes sense that there's a bit of a delay for bonuses to propagate but it shouldn't require clearing your cache.

Sorry @LaraL I have no idea how I replied as a separate post.
