My Walmart trip yesterday was saved from being a ho-hum ibotta run (the $5 Cash Back Blitz bonus expires tomorrow) when I found the MorningStar Farms Veggie Bowls and the elusive “Mobisave specially marked package” peelie on the Oreos to score a free package! The McCormick Grill Mates ibotta rebate had disappeared by the time I shopped, and my Walmart does not carry Minute Maid Orange Juice, so I didn’t get those.
First, the Oreos. If you have a Mobisave account, you may have noticed a curious “locked” offer for Oreos that requires you to find a specially marked package and enter a unique code into the Mobisave app for the offer to unlock. I have been looking for those packages at multiple Publix stores and Walmart for nearly two weeks and had started to believe all the special packages had been sent to Alaska. But I got lucky at Walmart yesterday! The “Mobisave” peelies were randomly placed on some, but not all, packages of Oreos (Thins, regular size, and family size). I first spotted one on an Oreo Mint Thins package, then saw one on a regular-size package of Golden Oreos, then spotted the holy grail of Oreo freebies – a family-size package of Oreo Double Stuff. You know which one I took!
Be sure to look for this peelie if you are a Mobisave user and have the locked Oreo offer in your gallery:

But there were three varieties on the shelf! I decided to just buy it and pay a little because I am unlikely to return to Walmart this week and needed the rebate for the ibotta bonus.
