eBay Cash Back temporarily suspended
If you are familiar with cash back websites, you've probably found out already that eBay has temporarily suspended its relationships with all the cash back websites, including Ebates, Fat Wallet, Mr Rebates, Big Crumbs, Shop at Home, and all the others.
They apparently are doing some type of internal research that can only give them accurate data by totally eliminating the cash back programs for a period of time. They say this is only temporary, but who really knows.
In the mean time, you can still earn money from your eBay purchases, and in many cases earn more than you were getting in cash back. I've been averaging 5-7% back on my eBay purchases. You can read more about How to you can STILL get cash back from eBay here.
