    That same thing happened to me with the popchips. Hope everything is going well for you with the new baby.

      I’ve had that happen a couple of times with ibotta, they change the dates after I have loaded an item. Another thing, for those new to ibotta is the expiration date may be 3/12 but the time is 1 am. I learned that the hard way. It is still a great app, just read carefully!

      Thank you! We are definitely enjoying our new baby. 🙂
