Free Thanksgiving Foods at Walmart with Ibotta

My favorite cash back app, Ibotta, is offering NINE FREE Thanksgiving food items when you buy them at Walmart!

Here’s how it works:

1) Download the Ibotta app and sign up for an account, if you don’t already have one. If you are new to Ibotta, use my referral code junxza to join my team and we can earn bonuses.
2) Go to from your computer and click on “Free Thanksgiving Dinner” on the homepage.
3) Allow Ibotta to add an extension to your browser (if you have a MacBook like me, this won’t work in Safari so I used Chrome to complete these steps) *Note: Chrome has all sorts of browser extensions available. Adding the Ibotta one essentially reminds you to use Ibotta to get cash back on certain websites and to easily login. I consider them safe.

4) Go to the app and the free Thanksgiving items will now appear. Select each one so you’ll get cash back when you buy them- this offer valid at Walmart only.

I did this and then picked up these items all for free with my curbside Walmart order! (The Glenmont store was out of the Butterball turkeys when I ordered.)

(There were additional free items available in the app that I picked up – like the Pepsi).

Note: If ordering from Walmart online for curbside pickup or delivery, you must link your Walmart account to the app to get credit (because Walmart does not give you a receipt that you can scan when you order online). This is easy and I show you how in the video below.

Don’t eat/need some of these items? It’s a great way to pick up items to donate to your local food pantry!

I love the Ibotta app and have been especially grateful for it when I order groceries online and can’t use paper coupons! It’s basically a digital coupon system but instead of taking the money off your order, you get it back through the app. It’s an easy way to earn cash back and you can cash out into PayPal or choose from a big selection of gift cards.

As you can see, I’ve done really well saving with Ibotta over the last few years:
