Plotting and Planning

Is it me or is Ibotta taking a long time to approve our receipts?  I would have thought that with Walmart putting the QR code back on our receipt that it would take just a few moments for Ibotta to approve our Walmart receipt but on Friday, it took hours to get my receipt approved.

SwagBucks is using a new method of processing our receipts, they are basically using the Fetch Rewards method and it’s probably a good method but for the Coffee Mate Cream deal, I’d bought (2) Coffee Mate Bliss Half & Half Unsweetened and (2) Coffee Mate Bliss Half & Half Vanilla and my receipt was instantaneously approved for the purchase of two coffee mates and I received 800 ($8) points, however, I was supposed to receive 1,800 ($18) points.

I submitted a trouble ticket (understand I did this on the 4th of July) and I kept getting errors on different segments of the ticket.  It would be nice if the fields would indicate if you can use a $ sign or not.  Anyways, as soon as I submitted my ticket, I got a response and they gave me 10 points. Huh???? The didn’t read my narrative so I immediately submitted another ticket and I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will get the rest of my SB points very soon.

On Sunday, we will be getting (1) P&G, (1) Smart Source and (1) itty bitty Retail Me Not which will only have 4 coupons inside, in fact, I haven’t even seen the RMN preview on Instagram but be sure to look for it before you toss away your newspapers on Sunday.

Don’t forget to print your CVS coupons from your CVS account or send the CVS coupon to your card.  I always send my coupons to my card and 99% of the time, I’ve not had an issue.

Hopefully, there will be a glitch or something exciting happen today or tomorrow because it’s been a bit boring in the coupon world since the Real Good pizza deal at Ralphs.🤣

    Had the same experience with the new SB system. Good it’s instant but I was credited only for 1 Bliss creamer out of 4. Same difficulty submitting a ticket. It’s been a week and no reply other than the automatic.
    Last year I submitted a ticket for another in store deal, (I think it was Glade), and they didn’t admit the error so I just returned the stuff.

      Let’s keep our fingers crossed that we get a response!
