Some folks will shed a quiet tear today with the apparent announcement that FatWallet is going away.
Years ago, many of my mileage junkie friends used FatWallet for valuable rebates. FatWallet was acquired by eBates and the rebate junkies moved there, though I’ve seen plenty of good deals pop up on Fatwallet over the years.
FatWallet is mostly a deal site now. It’s been useful, the first report on some deals. Ideally, you’re hunting on a number of different sites if you want to find all the best deals.
Now it seems the shutdown of Fatwallet is imminent. Deal junkies move on, always in search of the next deal. But, FatWallet will hold a special place in the hearts of some of my fellow deal junkies.
