@briarycliffs said in Google Home Mini $5 after iBotta and Best Buy $20 rebate:
Ibotta has a history of ending offers early. If it was still listed in your offers at the time of purchase, you should get the money, however, they pulled this offer as soon as word hit the boards about it being a great price. Offers can (and very often are) pulled at any time. I have to scan my receipts right after I check out now, had too many pulled by the time I get home or even just out to the car. That is the biggest downfall to Ibotta. Saving an offer doesn’t mean anything, unlike other savings apps that just limit the number of people that save an offer.
What I didn’t like about this particular offer was how you have to redeem it. You don’t redeem it through the app, you scan a QR code at the store, and then that gets uploaded to Ibotta at some point.
I’m just wondering why the $20 would show as pending, and then just gone.
My nearest BB is 60 miles away, so logistically it’s a hike. I can’t realistically even bundle other things into the trip to return it. I’d spend almost as much in gas.
