Be sure to double-check that it’s still showing in the app before swiping. It looks like the redemption limit might have been met early.

Did online balance reloads work for anyone? Thinking of reloading my Wendy’s or Chick-fil-A.

Got the offer by email and also in the app. There was also 10% cashback offer for Subway. Hoping to stack them, activated both. I bought a $10 wrap in a Subway store and later 2x $10 gift cards by paying with the Venmo debit card — all in 3 separate transactions. Each has triggered the $5 (max) offer and it shows as pending.

Looks like not stackable. I received 10% instead of the $5

Speaking of Raising Canes. After I made a purchase at Subway, it showed as Raising Canes and then also as Dairy Queens. Very strange
