Cranberry Spice Baked Brie + Free Thanksgiving Dinner from Ibotta

Thanksgiving is going to look a lot different this year. To keep our loved ones and ourselves safe, most of us will not be celebrating the holiday with extended family. That’s certainly the case for myself and it is kind of a bummer. Hopefully, this is the first and only year we all have to hunker down for the season, but while we are, let’s add a bit of extra magic to the festivities. I, for one, will be going all out with a delectable Thanksgiving for my little family. With the help of Ibotta, I will be stretching out my yoga pants but not my wallet to bring a bit of decadence to the holiday with my Cranberry Spice Baked Brie recipe.

I am particularly grateful to be teaming up with Ibotta on this recipe post, since there is a greater purpose behind it. The company knows what a hard year this has been for everyone and understands that many are struggling. So starting in November, Ibotta is partnering up with Walmart and Feeding America to give away free Thanksgiving dinners (while supplies last). Anyone using the Ibotta app and new browser extension (for online grocery pick-up and delivery orders) can receive 100% cash back on everything they need for a Thanksgiving Dinner for a family of 5. Pretty amazing, right?! Here’s what I was able to haul and save on through Ibotta from a recent trip to Walmart…
