apropos using a Groupon through Ebates-- have you or anyone else ever done so successfully? I've tried once with a My Wines Direct Groupon, had the cash back credited to my account, then had it reversed, presumably when they realized I had used a Groupon for the purchase.

Wow, that's annoying. I wouldn't stop attempting, though - it never hurts to try.

For the most part, i've had no problem getting cash back through either ebates or fatwallet. I did notice the other day on fatwallet some fine print that read something to the effect of "depending on the vendor's rules, coupons/vouchers may not be eligible for cash back".

Last year (pre-Groupon for me), i had a similar issue with ebates. I didn't get the cash back because i used some coupon code that negated it - and i had double-checked beforehand to see if that would happen but didn't find anything about it. I was pretty ticked off and now avoid ebates for that reason (plus a few others) unless their cash back or bonus offers are really compelling.

I don't have a problem with the rules; i just wish they were more up front about them before my purchase so i could check out other portals.
