“This is a really tough year for a lot of people,” said Brian Leach, CEO and founder of Ibotta. "Americans are grappling with renewed COVID-19 cases and the country is caught up in incredibly fierce and divisive elections."
To take advantage of the holiday cashback offer, new users need to download the Ibotta app, unlock the offer, and purchase Thanksgiving merchandise at Walmart. After purchase, you will need to scan a receipt and link it to your Walmart Grocery account to confirm purchases.
