    Meredith it looks like FL you have to choose Your products and verify you card before purchasing products and then FL automatically attaches to ibotta. This is like Savingstar. You don't have to submit the receipt, At least that is the way I understand it.

    I have a question for those familiar with Ibotta. I am just getting on the coupon app bandwagon and have run into my first problem. I used the Ibotta app last night to do a rebate on my Harris Teeter purchase from yesterday and it worked great. I am not trying to teach my mom how to do it and again the Harris Teeter rebate worked fine. However, when we click on Food Lion it requires you to enter your MVP card which we did. We selected the 2 products and unlocked them, but every time we click Redeem it just brings up her MVP barcode again. We've tried everything we can think of to get around it but nothing works. I tried it on my phone as well with the same results. Can anyone tell me how to get the rebates to work from Food Lion? How do we get it to stop bringing up the MVP card? Thanks in advance!

    Congratulations to your daughter. It takes a lot of hard work for a band to make it to the finals.

    Back from an HT scouting trip. Found aquafresh extreme clean on VIC 2/$3, had 2 .75/1printables, grabbed an almond joy single candy bar for $1, didn't know we had a .50 evic on the candy bar so payed .64 for all 3 items.

    ThomasG - thanks! We were so lucky. It only drizzled a few times and nothing was delayed because of the rain. It was quite chilly for the evening performances, though! My first real taste of winter this year.

    ThomasG - It was quiet yesterday! I was at a HS marching band competition at wake forest univ. all day yesterday and we did not get home until 3 am so that's why I was silent. They made it to finals, though and did great! Thanks for sharing the deals and data info.
