Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores Partners with Ibotta to Offer Cash Back Purchases at All Retail Outlets



DENVER, Aug 3, 2016 / PRNewswire / – Ibotta, the leading mobile shopping app that pays consumers on their daily purchases, has partnered with Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores®, the nation’s leading fabrics and crafts retailer, to offer discounts on in-store purchases. The multi-year partnership will provide Ibotta users with special offers and cash back options at any of the Jo-Ann Stores’ 850+ points of sale.

Through this partnership, Jo-Ann will use Ibotta’s new dynamic segmentation capabilities and customer relationship management (CRM) data to create segmented campaigns for its target consumers. The dynamic segmentation, which Ibotta rolled out to its partners in the second quarter, will allow Jo-Ann to deliver personalized media content and discounts with variable commissions entirely based on consumer loyalty to the Jo-Ann brand. Jo-Ann can now access Ibotta’s 100% connected mobile platform to provide each consumer with a unique offer and interaction specific to their past shopping behavior. Dynamic segmentation allows the majority of Jo-Ann’s marketing budget to be allocated to New Customer Acquisition (NTF) efforts.

“Instead of relying on old coupon tactics to reach millennial consumers, Jo-Ann now operates Ibotta’s targeted and traceable programs on a pay-for-performance basis,” said Kane mccord, COO of Ibotta. “This is designed to help attract new customers, entice inactive shoppers to revisit their stores, and increase the basket size of loyal shoppers. “

Jo-Ann will initially offer clients $ 5 cash back rewards through the Ibotta app – at various loyalty-based spending thresholds – when making an in-store purchase at any point of sale. The retail giant will also leverage Ibotta’s very active millennial base to engage consumers with seasonal content that inspires brand engagement and in-store trips. In a pilot program with Ibotta earlier this year, nearly three-quarters of shoppers at Jo-Ann stores were aged 45 or under, and Ibotta shoppers nearly doubled the average order value (AOV) by compared to the historical average for Jo-Ann.

“We know that inspiration can come at any stage of the creative process, which is why it’s so important for our clients to receive personalized content and savings along the way,” said Steve miller, Marketing Director for Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. “Ibotta is the perfect partner to help us engage our customers in a whole new way, while helping us engage a new audience of millennial shoppers who start their buying journey on their phones. “

Since launching in 2012, Ibotta has partnered with thousands of brands and retailers to bring more $ 100 million back in the pockets of buyers. For more information on Ibotta, visit
