Today, Ibotta launched its new version 1.2, which features a new “nearby stores” location selector, new and improved offers, and permanent deletion of undesirable offers. (For my full review of Ibotta, read here.) As always, Ibotta’s list of compatible retailers is ever-growing: as of this new update, it now includes Wegmans and Winn-Dixie.
What I love:
I love that Ibotta is now compatible with my favorite grocery store ever: Wegmans. I like the new variety of offers, and it’s pretty convenient that I can immediately remove offers I never plan on redeeming. I also love the new nearby store locator, which makes it so much easier to plan where I want to shop and redeem.
What I don’t love:
Immediately deleted offers are not immediately replaced with new offers and, even though Ibotta tells me it’s getting smarter each time I thumbs up or down, I don’t really see any evidence (yet) that my future Ibotta offers are being tailored to my tastes/needs based on my feedback.
It’s also still not immediately obvious (as least for me) how to tell Ibotta which kinds of offers you like and want to receive more of, and which you’d rather not see again. (In order to give an offer thumbs up or thumbs down, tap the “information” icon in the top right-hand corner of an offer screen.)
What I really, really love:
I love that Ibotta offers are completely self-redeeming; there’s nothing users have to do at checkout to claim a deal. Which means Ibotta offers are easily stackable with SnipSnap store coupons, as well as SavingStar and Upromise offers, plus printed manufacturer coupons.
