Call me if/when this helps you get your payout faster than the months that it currently takes.

What is the churn strategy?

First I've heard of it. Interested to know, as well.

I'll give you a hint: Nordstrom.

" Instant Cash Back tracking
Since we complete the purchase, we can credit your Cash Back immediately. "


Operative word is can, not will.


Another place to have your CC info stored, so when its hacked........... hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

from the Fatwallet Checkout FAQ

Why does my Cash Back say "Processing"?
FatWallet Checkout knows that a purchase has been made, so we
immediately add Cash Back to your account under a "Processing" status. Once
your store reports your purchase to us we then replace "Processing" Cash Back
to "Pending" Cash Back


Isn't this the current process? You just don't have to remember to come to FW first and click on a merchant link.

I agree, similar process without the initial link to set the FW cookie. This waiting for the merchant to confirm sounds redundant and conflicts with the immediacy mentioned earlier. It should go straight to Pending status once the transaction completes, waiting for the return period to pass,

I wouldn't trust it. I still remember those companies who would raise their prices equal to the Fat Wallet CashBack to cheat Fat Wallet members. If you went directly to their website something would cost $100. If you went through Fat Wallet with 3% CashBack, the price was then $103. Fat Wallet hemmed and hawed with no intention to refund all the money that the members were cheated out of until it became a major uproar and then Fat Wallet started removing posts and banning members who complained about it.

Fatwallet is literally the last place I go for Cash Back.
I've literally signed up for hole in the wall, flyby night CB websites in order to avoid these guys.

Is this supposed to be a competitor to Google Checkout? I simply cannot foresee this being successful. It is amazing how FW has lost it's edge in the last few years - I still come here once in a while, largely out of habit, but rarely do I spot something here before I do so at another website.

Is this a joke? You realize what website you're on?

I can't comment about hot deals, but I think FWF is the best financial deals forum on the web. FT and SD pale in comparison (not to mention FT forum software sucks).

Does FW track purchases? Last few times I bought using FW link + notes I never saw it in my account. Ah well.

What deals? It's mostly auto accidents and armchair legal advice now.

Guns.

It makes sense that most of the FW community believes that FW CashBack is the best.. Sadly, they're wrong..

FW CashBack is one of the worst. For 98%+ of the places I shop, I can get higher CashBack percentages elsewhere. Never had a problem getting all of my CashBack from the 3 other portals I use.

Now that eBates has purchased FW, and is slowly killing it off with all the ads, and promotion of places like Monster, I'm just here to watch the slow train wreck that will eventually lead to it's demise.

Agree +1

I come mainly to catch up on the FWF discussions.

I'm a bit of a noob at the whole CB thing. Can you let me know what the other portals are?

I use fatwallet, but my CashBack has never equaled a significant amount. I do try to use fatwallet though since i figure they should get something for all the time spend modding my posts (though sometimes I think I should be getting paid by them given the # of spam I report).

Anyways one day maybe I will try to cash in the $40 I have made here over 5 years.
