    What do you mean by, “Create an account on a different device to redeem my 10?” How does “that” know that I created “this” account?
    2nd Question: What if I only have 1 device?
    Thanks

        How do you redeem your first offer? Like, what does that mean exactly? I still haven’t figured out how to receive my $10 bonus. Thanks.

    I’m not seeing a deal for Sears that I unlocked and it expires today. I have the receipt and would really like to verify this purchase.

    Yesterday I added my mvp card to Ibotta for food lion (and this morning it’s still showing saved in my account). Ten or so minutes after adding that, I purchased products I had unlocked for FL, and when paying I had them scan my mvp card barcode from the app.

    Today, I don’t show any pending savings. Is this normal, and will they show up later? I still have my receipt…thanks!

    I don’t understand. You say create an account on another device in order to get the $10. Does that mean you have the app on your phone and then you log in on your lap top?? Or you actually create a second account?

    I have had a few rebates that were not credited to my account. How do I fix this? It’s probably too late this time but I need to know for future rebates since it’s happened 2 or 3 times since I started using this app (and I’ve only used it 3 or 4 max).
