(hat tip to reader Devon) Readers note that many people have a 10% back deal from Chase Offer or Bank Amerideals. 12/30/18: Deal for $47.50 is back. I believe it expires at midnight PT on December 31. 12/4/18: Deal for $47.50 is back. Expires sometime around midnight PT tonight, 12/4. Updated the image below. 11/29/18: Deal is no longer being offered. Update 11/28/18: Deal is back at $47.50. Hat tip to reader @veeRob Update 10/25/18: Offer is back for $47.50 for today only (not as high as the previous $52). Update 8/28/18: Offer is back at $52 for today only. However, it seems they no longer allow the $50-off coupon so it’s at least $43 for your first order (a $9 moneymaker). Update 8/14/18: Showing as $52 again. Expires at 2:59 am on 8/15/18. Should be a $27 moneymaker (up from $17) now. I also see a $5 offer from Ibotta for doing any Offer, so that should stack with this as well. Update 7/31/18: It’s now showing $52 (up from previous $42), valid until August 1 at 2:59am.]
- Ibotta app is offering $50 back when trying out a Blue Apron food subscription.
Blue Apron is a recipe-delivery/food-planning service which delivers fresh ingredients weekly for you to cook and prepare meals yourself.
The Fine Print
- Cashback may remain pending for up to 45 days
- May take 24 hours until the cashback tracks
- Not valid orders places using promo codes, coupons, or discounts
- First-time Blue Apron customer only
You’ll also get a pop up to get $50 off your first two orders. Credit seems to be tracking even when using the $50-off coupon. Swagbucks has a similar offer, but just for $35, and they explicitly allow using the $50 code (basically all Blue Apron signups use some sort of promo offer), so it should work on Ibotta as well, despite the boiler-plate language in the fine print.]
You can order the one-week two-person
3-meal 2-meal plan which should end up around $23 after discount, and get $42 cash back from Ibotta for a $19 moneymaker. The deal obviously makes the most sense if you value the actual product in case something goes wrong with the cashback. Blue Apron allows you to cancel the plan at any time so there’s no long-term subscription here, just a weekly cost will be charged unless you cancel.
Looks like a good time to try out the Blue Apron if you’ve never tried them before. If you’ve done a prior Blue Apron deal you won’t be eligible.
If you’re new to Ibotta, appreciate if you use my Ibotta referral link or Will’s Ibotta referral link; you’ll get a $5 or $10 signup bonus.
