Surprised Kohl’s didn’t make the list 🙁

How does this track with a lowesb10% off coupon?

Also curious to know.

Can’t comment on Lowe’s specifically, but I’ve never had Ebates not track for me when using a coupon and I’ve used some pretty good ones that were definitely not on the site. I’ve been denied by TopCashBack and a couple of the of the Cartera portals before, but never Ebates.

I have used coupons and had the purchases track

Not that great a deal. Almost all of these stores you can get gift cards from GiftCardGranny at around 12% off, if not more.

That has nothing to do with this deal though, does it?

When I shop at Lowe’s via ebates, topcashback, or otherwise, I purchase a discounted Lowe’s giftcard from one of those other sites first, then shop via the portal for extra cash back.

Apples and Oranges comparison.

Do you get cash back when you use a gift card? If so, ignore my previous comment. 🙂

Search for “frequent miler laboratory”, click through and type “lowes” into the search field on that page, and you will find your answer.

I bought gift cards using in store cash back and Ebates tracked them even though they were against the T&C. They clawed back all of my cash including the purchases that weren’t excluded. I eventually got some of the cash back after submitting all of the receipts they obviously already had.

I received a 20% cash back offer st Macy’s which I pounced on and got about $80 worth of cash back through regular spend. I then bought a few gift cards st a different store and they shut me down and took ALL of my cash back. This is what they told me:

“Any failure to comply with this Program Agreement, any fraud or abuse relating to the accrual or receipt of cash back rewards, or any misrepresentation of any information furnished to Ebates or its affiliates by you or anyone acting on your behalf may result in the termination of your membership in the Program and forfeiture of your accrued Cash Back rewards.”

They’re programmers are idiots and it’s my fault and they stole my cash back

Their programmers

Just want to comment from my experience, Ebates has the worst tracking for cash back and their customer support is plain out atrocious and rude. I recently had a big purchase made through their portal and was told they can not do anything until the retailer contacts them about the purchase even though I took screenshots of the whole process and send them it. Again this is just my experience with them. I had much better success with Topcashback.
