I stumbled upon this at Publix by accident but I think it turned out to be a pretty good deal! I’ve mentioned before that if you see a rebate on Ibotta that is an item AND an alcoholic beverage but if you live in AL, AR, CT, HI, KY, ME, MD, MO, NC, NJ, NY, OK, UT and WV you DO NOT HAVE TO PURCHASE THE ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE! Which means you get the full rebate for purchasing only the other non-alcoholic qualifying item(s).
Check out this Publix deal:
Buy (2) Lay’s Kettle Cooked Chips 2/$5.00 (sale thru 6/21)
Buy (1) Pepsi 6 bottles $2.25 (sale thru 6/21)
Redeem $1 Lay’s Chips & Pepsi Combo Ibotta Rebate (the Lay’s Kettle Cooked ARE included in this one even though the regular Lay’s are show. I scanned the Kettle Cooked in the store to make sure it qualified) and redeem $1 Lay’s Kettle Cooked Chips (pair with Shock Top) Ibotta rebate.
Total = $5.75 for all
Plus, if you redeem any THREE rebates by 6/20 (and this deal counts for 2!) you get $2 bonus cash back! Bringing your total down to $3.75! (And your June teamwork bonus puts even MORE cash in your pocket!)
More about Ibotta’s No Beer Purchase Required Rebates:
You might find yourself frustrated with the number of Ibotta rebates that show an alcohol item with another item for rebate. But you need to look closer at these! They are what we call “No Beer Purchase Required” Rebates. Meaning that you do not have to purchase the beer – just the other item in the rebate! Some states have laws against alcohol companies offering rebates on alcoholic beverages. So, if you live in one of the 14 states that have these laws, a lot of times you can still get the rebate just by purchasing the listed product(s)! The states are AL, AR, CT, HI, KY, ME, MD, MO, NC, NJ, NY, OK, UT and WV. When No Beer Purchase is Required, we call these NBPR rebates.
To us “old” couponers the concept is not new. Back in the day you just had to look out for the printed rebate forms near beer displays and mail them in. But I haven’t seen one of those in YEARS.
It looks like Ibotta is reviving the concept! So if you see a product you want to purchase paired with Budweiser (or another alcoholic beverage – don’t discredit it! Click on the offer and look for the [NO BEER PURCHASE REQUIRED] statement. If you look at the screenshot above you can clearly see them!
Have you noticed the No Beer Purchase requirement on these rebates? Have you redeemed any of them?
