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.

Maybe I missed something since Blue Apron has dozens of slightly different promotions, but it looks like “$50 off your first two boxes” is clever wording that really means “$25 off each of your first two boxes, for a total of $50 off.” So from what I saw the one-week two-person 3-meal plan is $34.94 (6 meals * $9.99 each + free shipping = $59.94 – $25 discount), and then with the $42 cashback it’s a $7 MM. The one-week two-person 2-meal plan charges shipping but works out a little better at $22.95 (4 meals * $9.99 each + $7.99 shipping = $47.95 – $25 discount), so $19 MM. Hopefully the cashback posts 🙂

We need to cancel the subscription after the first delivery for this $19 MM to work?

Looks like you may want to skip the subsequent deliveries (if you don’t want any) until the IBotta cashback posts. They do allow you to skip up to 4 weeks out. Just put a reminder to check your deliveries and ensure you are not getting any deliveries you don’t want. Not sure if they send reminders of your upcoming deliveries in advance or not, but I wouldn’t rely on this anyway.

I did this over the Father’s Day promotion with $52 back, Up to 60 days pending is correct, still haven’t gotten it credited yet. canceling before the credit is issued is risky. I did the Hulu promo a few months ago, cancelled after I got the credit and ibotta notified me that I cancelled. They didn’t claw it back but now I won’t cancel until the credit is in hand. Just an FYI

Tom

Do we just keep skipping deliveries? Will Blue Apron allow us to skip deliveries for 2 months?

Celia

I like blue apron so I’m on my third delivery, Costco sells discount cards, but I have skipped one and I have skipped 4 in a row when the spouse had it last year. Didn’t do more than that. They only show three weeks in advance so you’ll have to check in to keep skipping. Cancelling sort of a pain too, no online way to do it AFAIK.

The DJ

This was at the bottom of my confirmation email from Blue Apron. I don’t know how much of a pain it is, but if you need to cancel, these are their instructions:
You may cancel your subscription by sending an email to cancellations@blueapron.com telling them that you wish to cancel and then following their instructions.

Tried to sign up but when I get to the order page the formatting is completely messed up and I can type anything into it. Bummer.

Is it possible that this offer is targeted to certain users or regions? I just signed up for Ibotta using Chuck’s referral, but Blue Apron doesn’t show up when I search for it. The offer also doesn’t appear when I view all of the deals under the Ibotta Days header.

For reference, I’m located in San Jose, CA.

I’m also in San Jose (zip code 95124) and it worked for me last night.

I have signed up with blue apron before but never actually placed an order with them. I should be considered a new customer, right?

This offer is not showing up on my account. Any ideas on how to get it to show?

Dylan

Signed up for the account with the 2 person one week plan and for some reason they haven’t billed me yet. I use my capital one card for subscription offers like these because I can generate virtual credit card numbers that can be locked out and deleted at any time, but I don’t know if that has anything to do with it.

The Ibotta $41 offer is currently showing as pending, yet I haven’t actually given blue apron any money yet.

OK then…

Heads up – I checked Ibotta today (after the expiration time), and now it shows as expiring on 7/31, so we have a few more days to take advantage!

Ryan Goldstein

This is showing as $52 cash back for me, with an expiration date of 08/01/18 at 2:59 AM.

I can’t find Blue Apron when I search in the app. I just signed up today using Will’s referral link. What am I doing wrong?

Ryan Goldstein

Probably nothing; not all offers appear for everyone. For example, I haven’t had access to the Uber offer for a while, while my friend still has it and actively uses it.

Are you able to sign up again if you took advantage of the previous deal for $42? I am able to confirm that it shows up in “My Offers” again. The fine print in Ibotta does not say anything about prior offer eligibility.

Anyone successfully got this bonus again? I got the $42 back. Should have waited.

Celia

heads up on this: I signed up with a new account on 6/11 for the same cashback. Still pending so it will take up to the 60 days at least. Ibotta will probably know if you cancel it (they notified me I cancelled Hulu) so you should skip weeks until it posts.

Exactly what I’ve been doing.

After I sign up and schedule the meals. I notice that there is a line of red words ‘This coupon is not redeemable. If you believe this is in error, please contact us at contact@blueapron.com‘ at the top of Blue Apron’s website. I doubt that the $25 credit will apply to the first order or not. To be safe, I decide to give this deal a pass.

Was going to try this out tonight since I see the $52 offer in my Ibotta account, but your post has me concerned. If the new customer $25 promo isn’t going through, that turns the deal from a $29 moneymaker to a $4 moneymaker. Still not paying anything but I was hoping to get 2 weeks out of the deal if the first two weeks turned out to be $23/week after the promo.

For what it’s worth, I got the $50 off first two orders and it successfully applied to my first week. I was charged $22.95, and I just got word from Ibotta that my $52 credit is pending.

I got this red text as well, and so far no confirmation of $42 cashback pending from ibotta. It’s bren 30 minutes, will give it full 24 and update.

I just created an Ibotta account, and I can’t see the offer. Should I just create another Ibotta account? I used Will’s referral, fwiw.

I ran into the same issue last time I signed up for Ibotta.
