Never had one problem in last 6 years. Have had 3 payouts, no problems what so ever. Good company, just a lower payout than some of the others

I've been a member since 2006. Sometimes I have problems with getting cash back for qualifying purchases. At first, those problems were as simple as just giving them my order receipts and them verifying my click to that merchant. However, this is where their policy, or lack of policy, fails. My last two cash backs were not honored because the merchant (I shopped at the same place) claims I used a different referring source. However, the merchant wouldn't reveal what that source was because it was part of a secured transaction. So what am I left with? Without being able to verify if what the merchant said is true, Fatwallet basically tells me too bad. Here is their quoted response: "After a thorough investigation of this transaction, we have learned that this purchase did not qualify for Cash Back. We were informed that a different source actually referred this order to the store that you made your purchase from. Since this was a secure transaction between yourself and that store, the referring source is considered to be part of that secured transaction. Because FatWallet did not receive credit for referring your purchase, we will not be informed of the name of the source who did receive credit."
This peeves me to no end since I am intelligent enough to know that if I was surfing the merchants site before I went through Fatwallet, then Fatwallet might not be considered the referring site. Because of this, I always make sure to delete cookies and clear my cache so I start with a clean slate through Fatwallet. I'm moving on to ebates.com. Hopefully I will not have the same problem there.

No issues at all. Cash Back posts quickly and the percentage is correct. No issues with cashing out. I've been shopping for a month and earned over $100.

Be careful, they will "restict" your account for no reason!

I have used them for years and have always been satisfied. Their website is easy to use, they send you reminders about your purchases, and best of all, you can get your cash back in any amount via PayPal as soon as it clears.

I've been using FatWallet for years now and it's been working for me reliably. Whenever I'm buying something, I check against FatWallet to ensure I get the best price possible!

Another excellent website. They are now partners with Ebates but I would tip my hat a little more for FatWallet as I like the website layout a little better.

Pretty good cash back - my second-favorite after Coupon Cactus. I like that they send you reminders before your clicks expire in case you bought something and the cash back did not register.

Become more and more like scam. Try to hide all the cash back detail to hook you. It says 5% cash back. However, they only give you 1.25 dollar. Compared to other sites giving you more than 3%, what a scam it is!

Even though I just started with FW, I like it very much and I would highly recommend to everyone. NICE indeed!
| by Barbara @ 17:00:34, September 04, 2012|
Still can't understand why it takes almost 90 days to get cashback. Used to be quicker...not so now.
| by Andrew @ 18:10:40, August 24, 2012|
FYI, "Up to 3.6%" Cash back through Travelocity.com brought me 1.1% Cash Back of $2.40. (40 cents more than MrRebates and 40 cents less than BigCrumbs' flat rates)

Is FatWallet an identity theft ring?
After your purchase, you get an email from them telling you you have cash back but it's on hold. Ok. After a few weeks you get another email telling you you can now get the cash. But when you try to get the cash, what you get instead is an error screen and a message to contact customer support. If you follow through, a customer support representative contacts you and starts asking you for personal information. I was reluctant but did give them the information. They took the information but withheld access to the cash. Instead they said someone would be in touch to "take me through the rest of the process". What process? Extracting the rest of my personal information? None of this is disclosed on their website. This is very suspicious behavior and I recommend extreme caution when dealing with these people.

Site purchased by ebates and now they push the deals that give them the most return.
Major posted left and now all the deals seem to be copied fron slickdeals.net a few hours later
Service is now bad that ebates has purchased them with constant problems getting credit for my purchases
Used to be good, not now

been using em for more than 3 yrs, awesome website. strongly recommend.
| by Junhang @ 17:47:42, December 25, 2011|
The fatwallet is the best reliable cash back site I used. Most of purchase will be posted and give the credit on time. If some you feel wrong, just call them and they will contact the merchadise and normally get the credit back to you. High recommand!

Been shopping through fatwallet since 2005. Never had an issue with being credited. I usually rotate between ebates, big crumbs, mrrebates and fatwallet (all of which I recommend. Be sure to read the fine print for some offers). Although it seems to take forever to receive credit (90 days I believe), they are very reliable.
| by Kiwi @ 05:42:13, September 20, 2011|
Never had a problem with them. Awesome site. I use mr. rebates, ebates, shop discover, and fatwallet depending on which ones have the higher %. All these sites I recommend wholeheartedly.

I've never had any problem with FW. Recommended.
| by Jimmy @ 08:12:18, April 26, 2011|
I have never, ever had a problem w/ FW. They pay when they say and are prompt in getting back to you with info. They also offer a service to remind you of all click-throughs that do not report cashback so you can follow-up to get your credit. I've needed to do this a couple times and always ended up getting my credit.
| by john @ 08:04:08, April 25, 2011|
They suck! I bought stuff throught them and never got anything, never even registered my purchases, don't use them!!!!

The initial cashback rating is based on the provider's popularity, the number of cashback stores, cashback rates, customer service, user interface, and other relevant factors. A user should treat our comments more like a general guide than a review.
