10 Items That You Can Get For Free at Walmart for Thanksgiving

I was chatting with a few moms yesterday and I casually mentioned an app called Ibotta, thinking everyone knew about it.  Based on the confused looks and a few scowls that I got, I quickly learned that I should have told them this news a LONG time ago.  They are up to speed now and just in time too because the majority of items that are bought for Thanksgiving are pretty much free right now if you use the app.

Here's the low-down that I gave my friends - Ibotta is a huge money-saving app and last year they rolled out the "Free Thanksgiving Dinner" promotion and it was a HUGE success!  According to the story I read recently on USA Today, the founder and CEO of Ibotta, Bryan Leach, stated that "more than 3 million Americans" were fed last year because of this great deal.
