They have always come through for me.

Whenever I have had an issue they addressed it quickly and credited my account until they researched the issue. I realized my issues started when I switched to Chrome and downloaded apps to blocking tracking. I do all shopping through Mr Rebates using Explorer and every purchase has been a success since.

They do pay some of the higher cash back %'s but there's a catch I think they withhold some paybacks especially higher paying ones.
Had trouble getting a larger cash back about 30.00 they look suspicious the way they tried getting out of it. It was a kind of pain dealing with what seemed like lies to me but eventually they paid up when they saw I was going to contact the company I purchased from to see if their story panned out.
Also had a couple of smaller payments they failed to produce but they were quick to credit me probably since it wasn't much money.

Cheaters!!! Never use them again.

Not sure what everybody is complaining about. I've been using Mr. Rebates for several years and have NEVER had a problem getting a rebate I was entitled to. Every once in a while I've had purchases that didn't get tracked properly (including a recent $600 purchase), but whenever that's happened I've contacted customer service and it's been credited within an hour. Along with Ebates and Fatwallet, I've found Mr. Rebates to be among the best cashback sites.

I made two purchases on Mr. Rebates. The first one was big purchase ($400) for a gift card at Dell. Mr. Rebates didn't automatically register it so I made a claim. The rep rejected it claiming in their policy that they don't claim gift cards. I understood but Ebates gave me cashback for that same purchase.
Then I made a small purchase at Ebay for $20. I had to make a claim for it again and this time the rep said that Ebay doesn't accept claims. What a lame excuse. Save your time by going to Ebates or Fatwallet. They are much better than Mr. Rebates.

I seem to get credit for all my purchases. Even when I spend a couple of hundred on hotel stays.
The only annoyance is that it takes 90 days until the cash back becomes available for you to redeem.
| by B @ 14:48:39, February 01, 2013|
They always withheld rebates on big purchases! The excuse is always the same: "The order was credited to another website" and there is no way you can prove that they are lying. This happened to me a few times now. There are better websites you can use. The bottom line is I would not recommend this site to my friends.
| by JohnC @ 08:08:17, January 23, 2013|
like many of the other reviewers have said, MrRebates will not pay you for large transactions. It's fairly obvious that the positive reviews here are shill reviews. Almost laughably bad.

MrRebates WILL rip you off on big, expensive purchases. I ordered a $50 hard drive from TigerDirect, and properly received my 7% off cash back. HOWEVER, I made an expensive $350 dollar videocard purchase a few days later, and MrRebates NEVER credited my account for this purchase! I had to endure a 30 waiting period to file a complaint, & then wait several weeks for their reply. They ultimately DENIED my cash back on this expensive purchase, and it was on completely fraudulent grounds.
MrRebates claimed that they couldn't give me my cash back because I had clicked through another cashback site called "ShopforDeals" to complete my expensive purchase at TigerDirect. The only problem with this allegation is that this supposed "ShopforDeals" website DOES NOT EXIST!
Here is an excerpt from the email MrRebates sent me:
"Thank you for your patience in the claim below.
"Unfortunately, TIGER DIRECT has denied payment of the commission to Mr. Rebates on the order referenced below with the following reason:
"The order was credited to another website and not Mr. Rebates. (ShopforDeals)"
I assume that MrRebates purposely denies some cash back transactions, making up lies and excuses to not give you your cashback, because they want to keep some of the money for themselves. In my 10+ years of using FatWallet and Ebates, I have NEVER been denied cash back that I deserve. Yet, I use MrRebates for a month, and I already get denied about $20 of cash back, with no basis except their word (i.e., lies). Avoid this site like the plague for big purchases, and stick with more reputable sites like Fatwallet or Ebates instead.

I have received a lot of money back from this website. It is awesome. Probably around 150 dollars so far just by going to this site before i buy something. Check out my account -http://www.mrrebates.com?refid=157721
| by Brad @ 09:28:24, October 23, 2012|
I've used them for a long time and found them to be mostly reliable and the rates are generally pretty good. I've received about $500 from them over that last few years and had mostly good experiences. They've occassionally missed things but they've also given me a rebate or two that I didn't expect. Overall, I think they are among the top 2 or 3 cashback sites out there.
| by AK @ 15:25:35, October 19, 2012|
Worked well for a while until a large purchase, when the rebate zeroed out. Will use other cash back sites now.
| by Chris @ 03:58:34, October 18, 2012|
They are part of our advertising program on our website and this give good feedback on them.
| by Jeff @ 06:36:22, October 15, 2012|
WOW! Love Mr. Rebates! I have done a lot of research and they are currently the best cashback website out there! I don't know what all these other people are talking about, they probably aren't doing it right, because the rebate works every time for me! They are VERY reliable! They offer the highest %s back and have over 2000 stores! You can also earn money by referring others to use it! Which is what I am doing :) So...if you sign up...please could you use my personal link? Thanks and happy shopping!!
| by Ruth @ 18:17:27, October 07, 2012|
I used to use MrRebates a lot because they had great rates, but almost every order I put through had to be manually adjusted to give me my cash, no matter what I did. I even started using a different browser, etc. and they still did not register most of my cash back automatically! Their customer service rep, Abagail, was not terribly friendly. They also do not give you any kind of reminder that you may want to inquire on a click... I lost some decent cashback that way because I forgot to set a reminder for myself and missed the window. :( I have since started using other sites that recognize my cash back automatically more and give me reminders to follow-up on my clicks.

They never pay cash back for large purchases. They always come with excuses without any proof.
| by Emily @ 05:45:02, September 30, 2012|
I have used many cashback sites. Mr.Rebates is one of the top ones. I have had success getting cashback over 95% of my purchases. The times that the cashback did not register, I contacted customer service and was awarded cashback in a couple weeks. Highly recommended.

Was pretty happy untill i finally made a big purchase for the amount of 8.000usd hoping to get my 5% rebate. This transaction was not payed back. Opened a claim, no reply in 1 month. Contacted via email about my issue got a reply that the case will be escalated with some Account Manager "soon". It was 2 weeks ago. No news no cashback since then. Small amounts of cashback they do pay.
| by Mike @ 19:42:19, August 23, 2012|
Over the years I have always gotten the cashback. Recently I had an issue when I had to call the airline and adjust the reservations to add an infant. It may have voided the cashback, because it didn't register. That is the only time I had to contact them, and they took care of it.
| by Randolph Weese @ 13:41:53, July 16, 2012|
They have a great customer service with prompt replies and have assisted me several times with rebates that probably wouldn't have been honored on other sites. They are one of my favorite shopping sites and besides they offer a great referral bonus for people you sign up.
Trust them please.
| by lyrebird @ 19:29:10, July 05, 2012|
For the most recent three orders, I did not got my cashback, even I put the order number in the "note".
| by Jue @ 15:35:26, June 29, 2012|
Not reliable. Never get cash back for big purchases. They have all kinds of excuses to refuse the rebate.
| by BW @ 20:13:58, June 15, 2012|
Not reliable. Have to file claim for every click through and can only do it between 30 and 90 days after purchase or they won't accept it.
| by rs21 @ 11:46:53, June 14, 2012|
I have been using mrrebates for last couple of years. I find it pretty reliable.
| by kirov @ 07:47:28, June 10, 2012|
I use mrrebates for almost all of my online purchases. I have never not gotten my cashback from them. I would highly recommend them!!!
| by Rebates @ 17:52:20, May 02, 2012|
Always a great experience with them. Not always the highest cash back but they are reliable.
| by Nick @ 11:49:31, April 14, 2012|
I have been a member for over 3 years and find Mr. Rebate very reliable. I have had only a couple of issues of not receiving cashback for purchases, but these were my errors (e.g forgetting to sign in to the site). Mr. Rebate was willing to give me the rebate after sending them receipts via e-mail. I would recommend them for anyone who shops online. Sign up via: http://www.mrrebates.com?refid=376927

I've been using Mr. Rebates for over two years and have made over $1000. I've tried other rebate sites but Mr. Rebates consistently pays the most and their customer service is excellent. I have a tutorial at www.bradmoyers.com on how to use Mr. Rebates. Copy/paste the following URL to get a $5 sign-up bonus: www.mrrebates.com?refid=413814

NEVER get cashback for my 3 sets of roomba purchase at iRobot. Cannot be trusted.
| by L-Diddy @ 06:54:56, January 09, 2012|
good rebate rates but you have to track every single transaction, they sometimes calculate wrong or flat out miss it completely. pain in the rear to have to stay on top of them.
| by rk @ 19:19:50, December 21, 2011|
I have used it many times, trust me its one of the most reliable.
| by Lyn @ 21:37:08, December 16, 2011|
| by aj @ 05:09:09, December 11, 2011|
I have used them numerous times and have found them reliable.

I've been using MrRebates for almost 2 years, and I'm very satisfied with their cash back system. As much as I shop online, this is a great reward system. They email me a monthly report which states how much I have earned so far and gives me an option to either cash the reward or let it roll over to next month. I usually accumulate several months' rewards. Now I'm about to cash my reward again, I have earned a total of more than $100 this time :) I highly recommend this site!
| by yoyo @ 04:55:44, November 13, 2011|
poor referral trackings. waiting too long to get rebate. If they did not post you have to remember it for 1 month and write e-mail to them to post it.
| by Kiwi @ 05:43:40, September 20, 2011|
Never had a problem with them. Awesome site. I use mr. rebates, ebates, shop discover, and fatwallet depending on which ones have the higher %. All these sites I recommend wholeheartedly.
| by Mick @ 17:27:44, August 06, 2011|
I've been with mrrebates.com for over 4 years. It is easy to use.
I've chosen to have the rebate checks mailed to me. I've also chosen to wait until they are over $50. Paypal can be used too. They have a warning if you are not logged in. I've received several rebate checks. Personally, I still think they're as good as fatwallet.com.

Never get cash back for big purchases

Awesome place for ebay. Usually 3% but seen it as high as 5%. The initial 5% bonus is nice too! :)
| by Kim @ 09:28:37, April 19, 2011|
I've used Mr Rebates the longest of any of the cash back programs I participate in. I would describe them as "no-frills = big rebates". I don't think their website is as nice looking as other programs, but for the stores I shop at, the rebates are higher than almost all the other programs I use. I like that they pay out your rebates MONTHLY (some other programs only pay quarterly), when you have a minimum of $10 in rebates. But you must actually log in and request your money by clicking a link in your account (some other programs send it automatically). All in all, they are my favorite cash back site.

I was promised 10.00 dollars cash back after I signed up with the DOUBLEDAY , LATGE PRINT, bookclub and bought 2 books . Well I bought 3 books already and have yet to recieve the 10,00 dollars.

Mr. Rebates is great. The site looks cheaply designed but it works! I just joined 2 weeks ago and I have $97 pending in rebates already. 5 stars! Sign up here http://www.mrrebates.com?refid=533728

After months of being denied at a popular cashback site for silly, stupid reasons, I found a new home here at Mr. Rebates. The site just works, frankly. They even credited me for a purchase where I used Mr Rebates in the past but was too lazy to use this time around. Quite simply, they do what they're supposed to do which is give you some cash back when you use them prior to purchasing. Good selection of retailers and competitive cashback rates too.

The initial cashback rating is based on the provider's popularity, the number of cashback stores, cashback rates, customer service, user interface, and other relevant factors. A user should treat our comments more like a general guide than a review.
