FatWallet Forums Closing Down [Repost, Officially Closing On October 9th)
FatWallet has sent out an e-mail to members announcing that the site will be closed on Monday, October 9th.
According to Tim Storm (founder of FatWallet) the FatWallet forums (and I assume FatWallet as a whole) are closing down. It’s not clear what will happen or when it will happen. They migrated the shopping portal to Ebates last year, so I guess this change was somewhat inevitable.
This is a pretty sad day for me personally, FatWallet is a real OG and without those forums it’s unlikely this site would exist in the same capacity. FatWallet is one of the places that really got me interested in bank account bonuses and more specifically collating data points regarding direct deposits. You can find some discussion about the forums closure here, as well as some alternatives that users are putting together. I wish the FW team and community all the best!
