Default Mobisave changes

What's going on with mobisave? They have pretty much no offers and then put the site under construction and now are telling all of us to download Fetch app (no thanks). Mobisave was a really nice app for a while, but lately they've had nothing of any interest to me.

Anyone else have insights as to what's going on with them?

This is pretty knuckleheaded. Or is it sheer genius. As if nobody ever took a peelie from a product that they didn't purchase. This totally sounds like it was written by some underpaid functionary at Mobisave.

So instead of typical on-pack instant redeemable coupons, the MobiSave peelies are more like mail-in rebates that don’t actually need to be mailed in. So you’ll no longer need to check MobiSave regularly – it’s just there when you need it, to help you process your rebate after you happen upon a sticker.

From what I understand, you have to submit your receipt along with the code.

I expect there are ways around this. It just seems like one more hoop to jump through. First, you have to find these special stickied products, then do the additional step. I'm sure some people will do it, but I've never ever seen anything on their list with a sticky in any of the stores where I shop. There are just too many variables in this system for it to work smoothly.

Sadly, I'll hate to see them go after this change, but I don't hold out a bright future for this company. I enjoyed using the app in the past. It was simple and I really liked that there were no restrictions on where you shopped. Now it's just plain goofy.

I used the app during it's original release back in 2010. It was amazing then. When they relaunched, there were some really high rebates and it was easy to get them. The only rebates I use are from Ebates. Ibotta are mine month by month because I didn't redeem any during a certain amount of time. Not impressed with any of them much anymore. Too much time for a pittance.

Wow. I didn't realize it had been around for that long. I added it a couple years ago and it had lovely little rebates for everyday items that I really liked as well as the fact they sent your money immediately. I used to redeem a couple rebates a week, then they had weird offers for products I had no interest in and that were not sold around here. The peelies thing? I sought in vain for some of these offers for weeks and finally just began to ignore them. It's too much work to go hunting for stickers.

I just joined ibotta 2 years ago and have gotten over $500 in rebates back. Many of these items are super cheap or free and I love the bonuses, so it's been a real winner for me. I am sorry to see Mobisave go into this sad transition. I hope they make it, but I'm not much interested in the new platform.
