Good News

OctoShop has been acquired by Ibotta!

In 2020, we built OctoShop (formerly InStok) with a mission to fight the rampant price and inventory disparity with online shopping. In under a year, OctoShop became the go-to tool used by over a hundred thousand people to fight scalpers and find the cheapest option for everything they purchase online.

Today, we’re excited to announce that we are supercharging our mission by joining Ibotta, one of the world’s leading cash back rewards platforms!

Over the last few weeks, we have been working hard to migrate all our functionality including price comparisons, restock and price drop alerts, and cashback to the Ibotta browser extension. All the functionality you know and love is now available on Ibotta!

OctoShop will be shutting down on January 15, 2022 and all existing functionality will move to the Ibotta browser extension. We want to thank everyone for being a part of the OctoShop community and hope to continue to serve you at Ibotta.

How is the Ibotta browser extension different from OctoShop?

The Ibotta browser extension has all of OctoShop’s functionality - price comparisons, price drop and restock alerts, price history, and cash back. Ibotta also offers even more opportunities to save money with item level cash back - you can get additional cash back for purchasing qualifying products in addition to the cash back you already get from a retailer - adding even more value to your online shopping experience.

We’re actively working on adding new features to the Ibotta browser extension to help you save even more money, so keep an eye out for new features over the next few months.
