I needed something to eat since I had not eaten since yesterday and now, I can think more clearly.
As I had said in my Spend $20 get back $20 PayPal or Venmo Deal, I had used the camera on my phone and it asked me to open my PapPal and I followed the directions and I received confirmation shown above.
PayPal also sent me an email confirming the $20 off $20.
HOWEVER, what I didn’t realize is that you literally spend $20 or more and you get $20 off of your purchase when you go to pay.
When you go to pay, you have to tell the cashier that you are going to pay with PayPal and on the PayPal app, you click “Scan/Pay” on the bottom of the screen, it creates a QR and the cashier is to scan the QR code as your form of payment.
Since I was thinking, I’d get back $20, I purchased a Maybelline mascara, Maybelline Fitme face and Scott paper towels 12ct because I wanted the $2 Maybelline rebates and to finish the Spend $30 get $10 for the Scott/Cottonelle.
My total came to $27.44 and PayPal paid $20 and I paid $7.44 withdrawn from my PayPal card. You click on Recent Activities and it will show you the breakdown and the $20 Special offer used.
PayPal also deposited $10 into my PayPal account for shopping at CVS (YMMV)!
I spent $7.44 out of pocket (I did have a $5/$20 Maybelline coupon that came off on my receipt), I got back $10 ECB for the Scott/Cottonelle and $5 ECB for Maybelline, $4 Ibotta and $10 PayPal.
Keep in mind that I had previously purchased a Scott paper towel and Cottonelle so I just need one more paper product to get back the $10 ECB.
Again, you are supposed to be able to the same on your Venmo account.
On Instagram, it’s being reported that people of buying $20 gift cards (YMMV) and getting back $10 PayPal.
