      I fell in love with these Core bars when they were free a couple of months ago. The kid’s version was also free, and they’re even tastier. I already took advantage of this deal, and another deal just populated this morning (Buy 2, get 1 free, + 2.49 back on Ibotta when you buy 2). That’s 3 Core bars for $2.49 or $0.83 each. What a bargain!

      I do want to offer a note of caution, after what just happened to me, involving Ibotta and my linked Target account. I’ve been having issues with missed offer credits from the day I linked my accounts, which I’ve reported dozens of times to Ibotta. The support team is always slow to respond, but eventually credits are issued for any missed offers, and they apologize. Recently, however, they’ve stopped responding, and the situation got ugly. Here’s what happened last week:

      There was a major glitch between Ibotta and my linked Target account, which resulted in offer credits posting to my account for items I had previously purchased. This happened as I was adding offers to my list for an upcoming shopping trip, and it was happening with any offers that were repeat offers. I immediately reported the glitch to support and sent multiple follow/up messages. I also kept detailed records of everything because I didn’t want my account to be flagged for suspicious activity.

      No one ever responded to me, and I continued to use Ibotta as I normally do, until three days later, I was blocked from withdrawing my earnings. I reported this to support and still received no response.

      Yesterday, I got an automated email that my account had been permanently deactivated for violating Ibotta’s terms of use, and it stated that all earnings still in my account would not be released.

      I had almost $50 in legitimate offer credits that had posted during this time, so I went berserk and started sending email after email to any address I could find. Within a matter of minutes, the Account Review Team replied with the following:

      “We reviewed your account and it appears our automated system flagged your account for review based on one of the following reasons: Ibotta Saver data, shopping behavior, payment activity, or account audits. We have completed the review of your account and based on our analysis, we have decided to permanently deactivate your account.

      We verified irregular shopping behavior associated with your account and have reason to believe that these purchases were made by other people. Per Ibotta’s Terms of Use, Section 7.2, Ibotta Savers may not redeem, or attempt to redeem, Ibotta offers for products that have not actually been purchased and retained by that Saver.

      Due to the nature of our business, we reserve the right to suspend accounts temporarily or permanently if an Ibotta Saver violates any section of Ibotta’s Terms of Use. Our Terms of Use can be found here: https://ibotta.com/docs/terms.

      Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.”

      I was in shock and started to send one message after another to defend myself. I begged them to look at all of my messages to support dating back to December 17, 2020. I also let them know that I’m a visual merchandiser for Target, and I’ve been with Target for six years. I would never, ever do anything that could jeopardize my job, which I love, by the way. That’s when I got this reply:

      “Thank you for writing in. We reviewed your account and, as a courtesy, we have restored full access to your account and earnings for use. Please note, violating Ibotta’s Terms of Use in the future may result in a temporary or permanent suspension.”

      Needless to say, I’ve been so upset and hurt by the way Ibotta is treating me. It feels like they still don’t believe me, and I’m not sure what to do. I’ve sent several more messages to support asking if someone could call me, but I’ve yet to receive any reply.

      I believe I’ve gained a tremendous amount of insight into this glitch, and I’ve uncovered some significant breakdowns in the internal communication between Ibotta’s Support Team and Account Review Team. There’s also a huge need for improvements to Ibotta’s overall communication with it users.

      This morning, I found an email address for Ibotta’s Public Relations Team, which I’m planning to send them a message later today, I’m also reaching out to some contacts at Target headquarters to see if they can assist in connecting me to someone. If you have any contacts, please share my story with them and ask them to contact me. I would really like to speak to someone by phone because I don’t want this to happen to anyone else ever again. I was in tears last night, and I’m honestly nervous about continuing to use Ibotta. It’s such a shame, because I love Ibotta almost as much as I love Target.

      Anyway, please forgive me for such a lengthy comment, but I really hope my story reaches the right person, so that it never happens again to anyone else.

      Hope y’all have a spectacular shopping Sunday!

        Thank you for sharing your story. I hope you can return to loving Ibotta as you once did. Maybe unlink your Target account and just submit it manually. Don’t know if that where the glitch is but it’s a thought. Linking your account seems to pay slower to me anyways. Good luck. 🍀🤞

      Hi Michael! Thank you so much for taking your time to share your story. So sorry to hear you are experiencing this. At least your account was restored, that’s a great start, but I also completely understand your concern about this happening again. Hopefully you will be able to get in touch with someone who can help you resolve this. Wish you the best of luck! Keep me posted, please!
