No – if you use a paper coupon on the product the Walmart Reward will not be given to you.

Can I use another Rebate like Ibotta with Walmart Rewards.

We haven’t tested this out yet- It looks like they are very simliar to Ibotta rebates – which could mean they partnered up. I haven’t seen anything saying you can’t – but I don’t know for sure if you can!
