Over the weekend, I was able to use Ibotta Pay at Walmart and CVS and what really prompted me to do so was watching Amber’s Ibotta Haul on YouTube and she’d said that she received a redemption credit in addition to the items that she’d bought for rebates.
As you can see by the picture above, you must add your debit or credit card to the Ibotta app and then you are ready to use Ibotta pay.
I went to Walmart and bought a few things and I included a rebate item. I went through self checkout at Walmart. After I rang up all of my items, I hit pay and I got my final total. I clicked Walmart and Ibotta Pay and I entered my final total amount and you review the amount. You can change the amount very easy and you can change your mind and not use Ibotta Pay but use a different method as long as you haven’t scanned bar code of Ibotta Pay.
Ibotta Pay creates a unique virtual gift card number for you to pay so when you are at self check out or a regular register, you or the cashier will scan the gift card bar code and it’s super quick. It’s like a more secure way of using your debit/credit card because you are paying with a virtual gift card.
After I was finished at self checkout, I looked at my Ibotta transaction and I had instant credit for a redemption but I needed to scan my receipt separately to receive credit for the rebate item so it’s like a double-dip using the Ibotta Pay while purchasing an item for a rebate.
On Sunday, I went to CVS and I went to my super friendly coupon friendly store. I always give them 10 score for their surveys because they go above and beyond in dealing with all customers.
I did the Allegra Allergy 24hr Gelcaps 24ct deal and it was only valid on Sunday. The cashier only needed to scan 2 items and I let him know that I needed the final total and he need to scan my virtual gift card. I entered the final amount to credit the virtual gift card.
Initially, he scan the virtual card and it didn’t take but then he realized that he needed to change the payment method to gift card and it took the money off immediately. He was pretty jazzed.
I forgot say that Ibotta Pay is definitely a triple-day and it can be a quadruple-dip. I say this because Ibotta Pay gives you back 1% of your purchase amount back and 3% back at CVS!!! I got back $1.14 at CVS and $0.19 Walmart.
These transactions helped me to complete the Epic Eight bonus!
Oh, one more thing, you can get extra redemption up to 20 times thru I want to say 9/17 or 9/30. I went to look back at the app but I couldn’t find that information anywhere on the app but it was there when I did my first transaction.
