not what it used to be anymore

FatWallet is not what it used to be and it' frustrating. They no longer advertise interesting deals. Only those that are sponsored. And not always they are useful. It's all about...

Fat WalletThey don't care about real deals anymore, only deals that make THEM money

Since they were bought by ebates they are only interested in deals from their sponsors. To prove my point you just have to look at the promotion they are currently running where you get a free t-shirt if you post a deal by one of their sponsors. They don't care about real deals anymore, only deals that make THEM money (referral money kicked back to them). Deals are now poor or late after having been posted at another board hours earlier (They even give credit to other boards for the posts, why not just go to the other boards?). They favor a few posters and don't apply the posting rules to them so it has become a very poor site for people to post at and the board reflects this. Not what they used to be and going downhill from there Look at all the reviews of this place (here and other review sites) and you will see almost all negative reviews for 2012 since the changes.

    You should create your own free site and spend all your time posting deals for people for free. Don't worry about making money for yourself, just do it for the public good.

Fatwallet.comFree stuff section is terrible

Hot deals have gone downhill since top poster left. Ssite purchased by ebates and now they push the deals that give them the most return. Seems everything is either a Sunday sale item or copied from slickdeals.net a few hours after it is posted there. Free stuff section is terrible.

Not close to what it used to be.

Fatwallet.comAnti - Military

We run a program that puts donated kindles into our servicemens hands to help with being away from home serving our country.
For a long time we were posting offers for free kindle books at fatwallet and directing our service members to the site. Fatwallet has decided that we are no longer allowed to post these free kindle books by themselves for our service members (and their members) and banned our volunteer from the site. It appears the books popularity boosted our poster to second on their leaderboard and other posters complained. Since fatwallet was purchased by ebates they appear to have become more profit directed. They do not support our military in this instance

Fatwallet.combanned

Myself & another person were banned from posting on the site. I log on today & see that he now has full access to the site, I do not, I sent in a message, was ignored. I then wrote to Tim Storm himself, he replied, AVOIDING my question as to why the other person was 'unbanned' & I wasn't. Wrote him back, he is now refusing to email at all. He and his mods broke his rules for the site. I find this extremely UN -professional of Mr Storm! He needs to wake up & take a look around his site
