I haven’t spent time on FatWallet in years. I used to use their cash back shopping portal quite a lot for Expedia purchases, and sometimes for Priceline hotel bookings after you could no longer earn eBay Anything Points (which I’d then move to Cathay Pacific’s AsiaMiles at better than 1-to-1 back when you could book a roundtrip to Europe for 60,000 points — or 35 four-star hotel bookings).
However I wrote a hotel and an airfare booking FAQ on the site back in 2004. That’s the same year the phrase ‘App-o-Rama’ was coined as far as I know by a member there called ‘SuckIsStaples’. Back then people used to apply for credit cards in search of $30 signup bonuses.
FatWallet sold to Ebates in 2011, and Ebates sold to Rakuten in 2014. The FatWallet shopping portal is long gone, and soon FatWallet will be gone as well. The exact date has not yet been disclosed. RIP.
