When I have a site open which I got there through ebates, when I click on a product link in a fatwallet post, will it overide the ebates cookie and make me lose my ebates cash back?

Thanks.

Even better yet - if it doesn't override the ebates cookie, is the fatwallet link somehow connected to my ebates account since they are partners?

This is a really good question.  It's certainly a possibility that the FW cookie will override the Ebates cookie.  It's always best practice when cash back shopping (at any site) to not open any other links or click through another site once you've started your cash back shopping trip.  I would recommend using a different browser if you want to click around after beginning your shopping session.

It's not connected in any way for tracking purposes, so it can break your cash back shopping experience.

That's what I thought.

On my Christmas wishlist from FatWallet and eBates - when I click on a link in a FatWallet post, automatically make it a link that will get my Ebates cash back.

Do you use the Ebates Cash Back button?  While not exactly what you're asking for, it does remove the hassle of having to click through Ebates after clicking the FatWallet link.
