Fareway's Status on Ibotta

Some people call me a jerk...I prefer the term straight forward or blunt. I sent a message to Fareway on facebook and got a response. Check it out.

If you are unable to read what I wrote:
Hi, I was just curious on the status of your involvement with Ibotta? They've added so many retailers in just the past month and everyone is still just waiting for you guys to jump on the bandwagon. It really is a negative that you don't participate because there are great offers, like earn $.50 for buying any gallon of milk. Because you guys still don't participate in this great program, it's causing people to take weekly Fareway ads to Hy-vee and price match to get the great deals and still receive the Ibotta offers. It really is hurting business, just saying. Maybe if you could make it a New Years resolution? Please! 
They then responded:
We are getting it set up as we speak... IT is getting all the cash registers aligned with the program. We will let you know when it is available!
 I am not sure how long it takes to get the systems all linked, but we may be looking at Fareway being involved with Ibotta in the next month or so...cross fingers!
