      I can’t seem to figure out how to link the store to the app. Can someone help?

        I went to Redeem and choose Food Lion. It then allows you to enter your card number or scan it in.

      I can’t get my ibotta account to let me upload my food lion receipt. It has a little picture of a card where I uploaded the loyalty card number but no option for a camera to take a picture. Do I have to delete my loyalty card to upload a receipt?

      I scanned my MVP card with my phone and linked it to the Ibotta app, but the numbers did not read correctly. I have sent numerous emails to Ibotta to get it straightened out. They have been great to work with by the way. Just a note to double check that the number matches your card :)
