Pay With Ibotta To Be Debit Card Only From June 10th

Ibotta has a feature called ‘Pay With Ibotta‘ that offers cash back on all purchases (similar to MPX). Basically rather than paying directly with a retailer you use this feature and they generate a gift card for the exact amount of your purchase and that is used for the purchase. The upside is you get a discount on that purchase. Unfortunately Ibotta has sent out an e-mail to users stating that on June 10th credit cards and Discover debit cards will no longer be accepted as payment.

A bit off topic, but what can be done if Ibotta doesn’t apply cashback for a purchase? I’ve contacted support but it’s been unresolved for ~3 months now.

It was so convenient to pay with Ibotta then close out and reload to use the same gift card to buy online.

Rebuilding after a house fire the Home Depot pay with Ibotta was convenient especially since the rebate was instant. Now I’ll just go back to using a shopping portal with Raise.

I barely use this app anymore. But, one thing I really loved about ibotta was I could book hotels . com going through ibotta and pay with gift card and would still get cashback, whatever % they were offering. Don’t think there is any other rebate site/app that gives cashback on hotels . com booking if paying through a gift card.

There’s a chance Wikibuy does it

I’ve found this to be the case also, but for other retailers.

Well, that feature just became almost useless for me, especially the 1-2% places

All good things must come to an end. Ibotta is now wortless.

I still do OK on the grocery part, but I can see that many here would not be interested in that. I did get 2% back on my Grubhub order this week. Plus other grocery rebates, although not as much of late.

Ibotta was great back when it first started, as many apps are. Once in a while they throw me a good bonus and suck me back in but it’s getting less and less. I rarely use Pay with Ibotta anyway but only with Apple Pay. No way I am giving them credit card info, let alone now only giving debit.

I’m still too burned by the multiple Sony PlayStation hacks to list my credit cards in most of these apps, honestly…
