    I’m brand new at this I’ve never used it yet.I would like to learn all I can on how this works so I can get started and or use it on my next shopping trip.
    One of my first questions is how to scan and item in case I would have to at some point.
    Thank you, Sincerely

    I didn’t get my welcome bonus either, it said redeem your first rebate, so I did, ended up spending 39 dollars and they gave me 25 cents but no news of welcome bonus. Does anybody ever does get it, or is it too good to be true.

        I tapped on bonuses, didn’t see account button, probably cause I’m already in my account. Then looked for this “welcome bonus”you’re mentioning and didn’t see it anywhere!
        Do I need to click on welcome bonus to find out more about it or get it started??

        I do almost all my shopping at walmart with walmart pay now, which means no paper reciepts so this makes me very mad I can’t get rebates now.. when will this be an option. If not going to be I will be removing this app. I do 75 % of my shopping at walmart. You do mobile shopping why not this. 😦

    I just did my first shopping trip and I was within my first 7 days to earn the $10 bonus and my sister got hers and I didn’t.

    The Walmart e-receipt thing is a no go for me too. I just got 2 items that I couldn’t redeem because of this non sense. I will stop to use the app until you’re able to fix it.
