[Update 7/13/21: Available again. Also available on Swagbucks and MyPoints. Update 6/29/21: Back again for today only. Hat tip to reader Speck Update 6/24/20: Back again (same deal on Swagbucks as well) Update 9/24/19: Back again Update 9/17/19: Back again, but might make sense for the Swagbucks offer of $70/$75 to return. Update 9/3/19: Back again Update 8/27/19: back again; Update: 8/20 back again; Update 8/14/19: Deal is back, American Express has an offered for 10% back on meal delivery kits as well.; Update 8/6/19: Deal is back, sadly no AmEx offer available anymore. Update 7/29/19: Deal is back, today only. Seems to be targeted. Possibly made better with the AmEx offer for $25 back when you spend $50+. History: Update 7/27/19: Deal is back, possibly made better with the AmEx offer for $25 back when you spend $50+. Update 6/29/19: Deal is back and expires at midnight, sorry for the late notice. Update 6/25/19: Deal is back, today only (expires at midnight). $50 this time, again. Update 6/23/19: Deal is back, today only (expires in a couple of hours). $50 this time, again. Update 5/31/19: Deal is back, today only. $50 this time, again. 4/15/19: Deal is back again, this time for $50. Expires at midnight PT tonight. 3/9/19: Deal is back again.

(hat tip to reader Devon) Readers note that many people have a 10% back deal from Chase Offer or Bank Amerideals. 12/30/18: Deal for $47.50 is back. I believe it expires at midnight PT on December 31. 12/4/18: Deal for $47.50 is back. Expires sometime around midnight PT tonight, 12/4. Updated the image below. 11/29/18: Deal is no longer being offered. Update 11/28/18: Deal is back at $47.50. Hat tip to reader @veeRob Update 10/25/18: Offer is back for $47.50 for today only (not as high as the previous $52). Update 8/28/18: Offer is back at $52 for today only. However, it seems they no longer allow the $50-off coupon so it’s at least $43 for your first order (a $9 moneymaker). Update 8/14/18: Showing as $52 again. Expires at 2:59 am on 8/15/18. Should be a $27 moneymaker (up from $17) now. I also see a $5 offer from Ibotta for doing any Offer, so that should stack with this as well. Update 7/31/18: It’s now showing $52 (up from previous $42), valid until August 1 at 2:59am.]

The Offer

  • Ibotta app is offering $50 back when trying out a Blue Apron food subscription.

Blue Apron is a recipe-delivery/food-planning service which delivers fresh ingredients weekly for you to cook and prepare meals yourself.



The Fine Print

  • Cashback may remain pending for up to 45 days
  • May take 24 hours until the cashback tracks
  • Not valid orders places using promo codes, coupons, or discounts
  • First-time Blue Apron customer only

Our Verdict

You’ll also get a pop up to get $50 off your first two orders. Credit seems to be tracking even when using the $50-off coupon. Swagbucks has a similar offer, but just for $35, and they explicitly allow using the $50 code  (basically all Blue Apron signups use some sort of promo offer), so it should work on Ibotta as well, despite the boiler-plate language in the fine print.]

You can order the one-week two-person 3-meal  2-meal  plan which should end up around $23 after discount, and get $42 cash back from Ibotta for a $19 moneymaker. The deal obviously makes the most sense if you value the actual product in case something goes wrong with the cashback. Blue Apron allows you to cancel the plan at any time so there’s no long-term subscription here, just a weekly cost will be charged unless you cancel.

Looks like a good time to try out the Blue Apron if you’ve never tried them before. If you’ve done a prior Blue Apron deal you won’t be eligible.

If you’re new to Ibotta, appreciate if you use my Ibotta referral link or Will’s Ibotta referral link; you’ll get a $5 or $10 signup bonus.

I signed up for this on 1/18 and my cashback just posted today. I don’t believe this offer is currently available, but it does pop up every now and then for ibotta users who haven’t redeemed their Blue Apron offer before. Here’s my timeline:

1/18 – signed up through ibotta link with new email address (my household has participated in this promotion before, you just can’t have more than one person in your HH signed up at a time with Blue Apron)
1/19 – $50 credit appeared as pending on my ibotta account (notified through both push notification and email)
1/23 – charged on my Amex card for $60.88 (4 servings of 3 meals each), $25/$50 Amex offer redemption/congrats email received)
1/25 – $25 Amex cashback statement credit posted to account
1/28 – received meal box, can pick a day of your choosing if you don’t like the first date they offer you for delivery
2/12 – ibotta app push notification and email of offer crediting, redeemed and sent to PayPal account same day

I will wait a couple of weeks before officially cancelling my subscription so as to avoid any potential clawbacks of my bonus. I skipped my deliveries as much as I could but knew that cancelling before receiving my credit might result in a reversal. Made almost $15 and got 3 free family dinners out of the deal.

All the meals were good. I got meals with chicken, rice and green beans, beef gnocchi and tilapia noodle casserole with kale and a creamy lemon sauce, and I hope to be able to recreate these meals for cheap with the recipe cards they gave me in the box!


Chuck Seeing a $55 cash back offer for today (2/1/2022) on Ibotta


Didn’t get the 50 from Ibotta in August. Still haven’t gotten it. Support wasn’t much help other than saying that they’re waiting for BA to send more details.


Can we just have first week delivered and skip the remaining 3 weeks and then cancel after 30 days ?
That way it would be the minimum $27 spend .

There is no minimum spend. You can get the cheapest meal plan (2 recipes serving 2 people) for $22.45. It might be smart to skip every delivery until you get your points.

Don’t do it with Ibotta because they are going to take that Cashback again from you when you cancel. Here is what they sent me today:

Order has been canceled

You have successfully canceled your Blue Apron transaction and any cash back or bonuses associated with this transaction will be canceled and/or reversed. If you did not cancel or return your items, your order may have been reversed if you used a promo code. For some retailers, only select promo codes are eligible to qualify for online offers. Check the offer details to see which exclusions apply.

If this cancelation was made in error or not requested by you, please send us your purchase information through the Help Center.

Next time, remember to start with Ibotta to get cash back on your Blue Apron order!

It wouldn’t let P2 open an account with different email and same mailing address.


Does anyone know how long the Blue Apron account has to be kept open?
