I’m back in Receipt Pending Jail

When I got to Whole Foods, I usually go early in the morning to avoid the crowds and the horrendous parking.  We got 1.7 million people in the city of San Diego but we only have two Whole Foods and I’m not trying to La Jolla just to go to the Whole Foods.

However, the FREE Michel et Augustin Cookie Squares did get me to stop by the Whole Foods.

I bought the cookies and as soon as I got into my car, I scanned my receipt and I’ve been in Receipt Pending Jail every since my receipt was scanned.  The longest that I’ve been in Receipt Pending Jail is 5 days but that’s a long time if you are trying to complete a bonus.

I’ve notice a pattern that Receipt Jail only seems to happen with my Whole Foods and Albertsons receipts.

    This happens to me with Savingstar. Sometimes they’re quick with it, but sometimes they take three weeks (and even an e-mail) to push the rebates.

      Savingstar is quick to give me credit for Walmart, Target and Ralphs receipts but all other receipts it’s a waiting game.

    whole food receipts seems to be hit or miss for me…
    Last one for *michel* was pending for very long time (over 4 days -ish)
    and today it was finally declined.
    the explanation was that the receipt was either submitted by me previously or by someone else…
    what is going on with ibotta.. the statement is insane… at least they could of said they didn’t find the michel on it ( only item on it lol)

      Natalia, resubmit that receipt as you have nothing to loose and $4.99 to gain.

      Happening to me as well! Ugh!

        I’m going to tell you the same thing I told Nat:

        Send an email to them: [email protected] and include a picture of your receipt, the product, UPC code and a screenshot of the offer and request that they give you the $4.99 credit for the $4.99 Michel et Augustin Cookie Squares for any variety, any size, Ibotta offer.

        You can screenshot the actual offer: https://ibotta.com/rebates?q=michele

        When I email them, I always get the credit.
