3 Words: FREE. School. Supplies! 📚

After a year of financial hardships, job reassignments, and other challenges that families may have faced, the one thing that shouldn’t be difficult is sending the kids to school.

That’s why through the end of August, Ibotta is giving away FREE school supplies bundles from Target, Walmart, and other participating retailers with 100% cashback!

This awesome bundle is valued at $20 and includes first-day essentials like pencils and a notebook to get kiddos on the write track, as well as ingredients for lunches made easy! And the bundle is yours completely FREE after cash back – how awesome is that??

To score this hot offer, just use the Ibotta app or the new Ibotta Browser Extension (for online grocery pick-up and delivery orders) to add each available bundle item to your Ibotta account. If shopping in-stores, be sure to complete your purchase and upload your receipt as soon as possible as these offers may expire quickly.

If you prefer to shop using Target’s Pick-Up, Drive-Up, or Same-Day delivery options, just be sure to link your Target Online account inside your Ibotta app before making your purchase. Once your accounts are linked, you’ll automatically get cash back for your purchases as long as you’ve added the offers to your Ibotta account before making your purchase.

    I love this!! But I can’t find the offers anywhere?? I searched in my updated app and nothing…

    • Nee

      Figured it out!

      • Cheryl


        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Hi Cheryl! When I open my app, I see a pop up with the option to add these offers to my account. I also see it when heading to their site above.
          You will have to go to the Ibotta website – login and click on the part that talks about the free offers. Then within an hour, the offers will be added to your account. It took about 45 minutes to show up for us.

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Oh good! Thanks for the update!

        • Cheryl

          Got them! Thank you! I appreciate your help. ❤️ hip2save

          • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

            Yay! You’re SO very welcome!!

  2. Nora-Lee Rodriguez

    I only found 1 of these offers 🙁 and not free

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Sorry for any confusion. You’ll need to head to the Ibotta website, login and click on where the offers are shown. They will then be added to your account within an hour. Hoping this is helpful!

      • Nora-Lee Rodriguez

        oh I guess they changed it, I had to add the Chrome extension, then link my account to Target, for them to give me those offers. I had unlinked my account because I was missing too many offers from Target.

    • Amy

      Same. The five star. Went through the steps. Wonder if they’re already all redeemed. I know when they did the thanksgiving one once the items were redeemed by a certain number of people they disappeared

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Hi there! If still having issues, be sure to reach out to their care team for help as it seems it can vary by account as to how you grab the offers.

  3. Nikster

    I can’t find any of the offers. Am I doing something wrong?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! Be sure to go to the Ibotta website – login and click on where the offers are mentioned.
      You should then have the offers added to your account within an hour. Hope this helps!

  4. IP

    It says Target online only. Does that mean I can’t order online and pick it up in-store?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! It looks like it should still work for pick up when ordering online. Hope this helps!

  5. IP

    Thank you, Amber. Just placed the order for my son’s school supply drive.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! You’re SO very welcome, IP!

  6. couponmyrick

    There’s also del Monte fruit cups as part of this offer.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SWEET! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Rachel

    I think the post should be updated that ibotta is requiring you to install the ibotta extension to a browser to receive the offers. It’s not available on the ibotta app, at least for me. I’m not interested in letting ibotta know my entire browsing and buying history, so this is a no for me.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the feedback, Rachel. Sorry for the issues. I do find the details do include the app as well. Maybe check back again in a bit.

    • Felice

      I agree with Rachel. Ibotta is requiring the extension to be downloaded to your computer. I don’t see any free offers on the app.

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Sorry for any confusion, Felice. If still having trouble with this, be sure to reach out to their care team for assistance. It appears that the process to snag the offers can vary.

    • kaycee1

      I didn’t have to add the extension. I just signed in from my browser then opened the app and the offers were there.

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Woohoo! Glad you could easily find them! Thanks for sharing with us!

    • Nora-Lee Rodriguez

      I agree, it did not work for me through the app. Either you have to do it on the computer or it could be I did not have the Target online account linked to Ibotta. It is not a in-store offer so that could be it. It worked after I did it online, not through the app

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks a bunch for letting us know how it worked for you!

  8. Julie

    I am having a hard time with this. When I click on the download, it takes me to the App Store, which asks if I want to “open” my Ibotta app, which I do and it takes me back to where I click to download. Any suggestions? I am not around my computer, I just have my iPhone.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, maybe try switching to desktop view to see if it might work better for you that way. Hoping that does the trick!

  9. Arie

    I cannot find any possible way to get these offers added without downloading the browser extension, which I refuse to do. On the app, you have to put in the email associated with your account. I received the email and it says I must click on the link and download the browser extension in order to “unlock the offers”. Maybe anyone who is able to just sign in and add the offers already has the browser extension downloaded? Back in November when ibotta had the free offers for Thanksgiving, you could click on a link that said “don’t have a computer?”. I don’t see any such link this time around. I’m just not willing to give ibotta access to my computer. Not worth it.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SO very sorry for the issues, Arie. We are looking into this to see if we can get any further details on grabbing the offers.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hello again! If still having trouble with this, be sure to reach out to their care team as they may be able to offer more help in grabbing the offers.

  10. Alyssa

    Worked just fine in the app for me! Was able to find all items that qualified while shopping in store.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! Super glad it worked for you, Alyssa!

    • jnetlew

      I have the offers listed in my Ibotta app, under Walmart. I can shop in store to get them instead of online+pickup? Did you redeemed it already after checking out in store? Thanks….I rather get items myself than someone else…

      • Nora-Lee

        I think you can do online order and curbside pickup. I ordered on Target, not Walmart, I will pick up now, lets see if it works 🙂

      • C

        Walmart you can do it in store… but with target I think it’s only order pickup… I did it in store at Walmart

  11. kaycee1

    Thank you, no problems redeeming and no extension added. I did have to go to the browser and sign in on my laptop. It will not work from a phone. After that I went to the app and the offers were there. I also got bonus points on Fetch for Kleenex and received 300 points for my receipt.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh good! You’re welcome! Thanks for letting us know how it worked for you!

  12. Rmunoz

    I hate that it’s only if you download the browser extension! I only have a cell phone and can do most everything without having to buy a home computer setup. Guess I’ll just keep watching for other deals🤷🏻‍♀️

    • jw

      Mine show up on the app. On the home page there is a section called Back to School Free for all.

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks so much for the helpful comment!

  13. MaaMaaBear

    is there somewhere on ibotta to check your pending orders that you’ve done through target online?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! I did look this up for you. Here is what I found on that – “Your pending offers should be available to look at in the Account section of the app within 48 hours.” Hope this helps!

      • MaaMaaBear

        Thank you!!! I remdeemed this yeasterday but still waiting for it to show! Fingers crossed I did it right!!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          You’re very welcome!

  14. LL

    How do you submit receipts if doing target online purchases?

    • MaaMaaBear

      I believe you need to have linked your Target account to Ibotta prior to the purchase.

    • MrsA

      That is my question too.

    • Shopper123

      I’ve always just had my Target account linked, then shopped through Target via Ibotta and it takes a few days but it gives me credit automatically then.

      • Kim

        I have always had my Target account linked too. I shop through the link in the Ibotta crome extension that links to the Target website. It’s been 18 hours and no rebate yet. Usually they are quicker, but after reading your reply I think I’ll wait several days before inquring. It really has taken days for you to get the rebate?

        • Kim

          Update… the points just posted to my Ibotta account. So, less than 24 hours and it was automatically applied. Thanks,

          • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

            GREAT! Thanks a ton for the update!

  15. wren

    I’m usually pretty savvy with this stuff but i can’t get it to work for the life of me without adding the extension. Lol. Tried my desktop, updated the app, clicked the banners on the app and the website…. I think I’m giving up!

    • Arie

      I feel your pain! I kick myself for the amount of time I’ve wasted on this today. Tried everything recommended here by all these super kind people and no offers appear in my app. I have a family member in IT/cyber security who has cautioned me to not use chrome browser extensions. He’s never steered me wrong so I guess I have to pass on this one.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      DARN! SO sorry for the frustration. Be sure to reach out to their care team for additional help on this. Hoping you can grab the offers soon!

  16. hoosiermomof3

    All u need to do is go to Ibotta website in tablet or computer. Add the browser extension. The offers will pop up on the website. Add them from Ibotta website. Then they will appear on the app too. Hope that helps.

  17. hoosiermomof3

    Also the offers are available at Walmart, not just Target online.

  18. Alex

    You need to open your app, scroll to the bottom, then you will see the button Free made easy, All free offers, all in one place.

  19. Sharon

    From the Ibotta site ” If you don’t have access to a computer, you can submit a ticket to our Care team for assistance. But, be aware Care teams might take a few days to get you the offers, so the fastest way to get the offers is to download the browser extension if you have a computer.”

    • Hunterwoody

      But don’t you have to activate the offers first? I can’t download the browser. Offers don’t show up in the app without the browser for me 🥴

      • Sharon

        I sent a message to customer care (I picked the topic of technical issue) and told them I didn’t have access to a computer. About 24 hours later, they emailed me back & said they had loaded the deals into my account under Walmart. It doesn’t show up for Target, but I’m happy to get anything. They were very nice about it. Hth.

  20. Amie

    The erasers qualify as an item for the Boxtops for Education app. Every ten cents counts for the schools.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the tip, Amie!

  21. julie

    was able to get everything

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Woohoo! 🙌 Super glad to hear that!

  22. Sue P

    Got everything except the bread (which we don’t really eat anyway). The Walmart I was at no longer had the single pack Kleenex, but the offer allows you to get a multi-pack and you will get the cash back for the single pack (ended up paying $1.10 for 2 packs of Kleenex).
    Thanks H2S!!

    • Liza (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re very welcome, Sue! I’m glad you could pick up most of the freebies!

  23. Jennifer Caldwell

    Worked for me! Did Target online. It credited as soon as I picked my order up.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)


    • MaaMaaBear

      hmm mine still has not shown up! Getting nervous now! I picked up yesterday around this time….so 24hours!

  24. Debbie in PA

    I tried all of the suggestions noted, but nothing worked for me. It seems whether using the phone app, or on the computer, the only way i can get this offer is to download the browser extension, and i am not going to do that. I don’t need any of these things, but i was hoping to donate them to someone who did need them. Oh well….

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      So sorry for the issues, Debbie. You can also reach out to their care team for assistance in grabbing these offers. Hoping that helps!

  25. Hunterwoody

    Can someone say how they did it without the browser? I can’t get it to work.

  26. Vaku

    It was not showing in my app or even in the browser.can you help me how to figure out

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SO sorry for the troubles, Vaku. Maybe try reaching out to their care team. Hoping that might be helpful!

    • Alex

      You need to open your app, scroll to the bottom, then you will see the button Free made easy, All free offers, all in one place.

  27. Misti

    Awesome thank you. Just picked up everything but forgot the fruit cups. Thanks for posting.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome, Misti!

  28. Paula

    Thanks for the tip on how to get the offer. Ordered for pick up everything I could and picked up the rest when I went in to pick up those offers. I was able to get everything which is amazing in my area.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Super happy to hear that, Paula! You’re most welcome! Glad you could snag all of the offers!

  29. Rachel L Pride

    Where is it? I’m not seeing this on my app.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! You may be able to grab it easier on their desktop site. If still having issues, be sure to reach out to their care team. Hoping this helps!

  30. mel


    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Mel!

  31. B

    Took 36 hours to get my credit. I bought all the free items and a couple more items to get the $5 bonus. (Salsa and pesto) got like $27 back after all that and only spent $23 I think.

    Used the computer extension to buy target online, then picked up in store. Didn’t upload a receipt.

  32. Dolly

    I am trying to redeem my Walmart receipt but it’s not going through. Anyone else facing the same issue?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, maybe wait a moment and try again. If still having issues, be sure to reach out to their care team.

      • Dolly

        Thanks Amber, I have already emailed them.

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          GREAT! You’re welcome!

  33. Gogogamma

    Ok am I being slow or what? I still don’t get how to get these free school supplies. Help an old lady please 🙏😁

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! You’ll need to head to the Ibotta app or website. Then login and click on where the offers are shown. If you don’t see them available right away, they should be added to your account within an hour. Hope that helps!

  34. carol goldberg

    hi I had added to my iobotta and linked my target card but I went into the store and picked out the items available and purchased on Monday and its Saturday and it did not show up in my Ibotta acct. with target were you allowed just to go to store and buy it or did you have to do pickup thanks

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      If you shopped in-store, you’ll need to upload your receipt to Ibotta to get the credit. I would hurry on that!

  35. Francoise

    There’s no way I’m downloading a browser extension on my laptop so as another mentioned earlier, I contacted ibotta through the app and asked them to unlock the free bts offers for my phones, stating that I don’t use a laptop, etc. They responded in just a few hours and unlocked the offers for me in the app.
