    Does Ebates Still Have a Download?
    I don't see any mention of Moe Money Maker on their site anymore. It was there when I checked a few weeks ago.

    Also, taking a look at their Merchant List, I don't see any "Coupons Only" merchants anymore. That was an indication that the merchant didn't participate in the download.

    Do we have reason to cheer or is it a false alarm?

    If they don't actively market the download on the site now, they still have an incredible user base that has the software installed so there is no reason to rejoice. Alejandro ain't no fool - I'm sure he's making it "appear" as you speculated!

    But Haiko, if the merchants who were formerly Coupons Only require no download participation and they are still in Ebates allowing a cash back, those merchants wouldn't be able to police the policy. How could Ebates assure those merchants that Ebates customers with existing downloads weren't causing Ebates to violate that policy with those particular merchants.

    Snowman,

    Some of those merchants are listed as coupons only, because they don't allow the cashback, for example Walmart.

    It is not only about the download.

    Ewww, skishore, thanks for correcting me. I was looking in the wrong column for Coupons Only.

    The Moe Money Maker issue still remains, however.

    Then it would be in your best interest to learn the status of Ebates Moe Money Maker.

    If you go to their site, click on T&Cs, they talk about how to download and install the Moe Money Maker as well as addressing how it functions to provide links to merchants.

    Please quote the language from their T&Cs about how to download and install Moe Money Maker. I don't see those instructions at http://www.ebates.com/terms_and_cond...ation_id=18571

    I was really hoping your nasty side wouldn't show its face on this thread, Donuts. I provided a link to the T&C so I obviously didn't have a problem finding it. I asked you specifically to reference where they give instructions on how to download and install Moe Money Maker which you still haven't done.

    Haiko, do you think merchants using Ebates have a reading disability?

    I read that language before I even commented about the T&C. There are no instructions there as to how to download and install Moe Money Maker. It simply tells you how it works and what your responsibilities are.

    My point here is that I haven't found anywhere on Ebates site an advertisement for the download or instructions how to install it.

    You can find the download instructions here:

    http://www.ebates.com/help/moe_money_maker.htm#20

    Apparently, the download is only accessible to members (which is the way it should be).

    Thanks, Michael. I am always logged into Ebates. I joined years ago so I would get their emails. I have never ever used their program. My username appears at the top of the screen on their site so I know I'm logged in. I still can't find it without clicking on the link in your post. How were you able to find it?

    They sure make it difficult to find. It's not even mentioned in their FAQs.

    I suspect that page hasn't been updated in years.

    Is the Moe Money Compatible for all computer setups?No, the Moe Money Maker's minimum requirements for download include Windows 95, and Internet Explorer 4.0 or AOL 5.0.

    What about all of the other browsers, especially Firefox?

    Something else I found referenced in their Help section suggests it's outdated as well.

    OK, waiting to hear what Haiko finds out from Paul as to whether Ebates is still promoting Moe Money Maker, especially to new signups. Doesn't look like it to me.

    Snowman, so you are trying to find a way to work with eBates? To give them creditability?

    I think anybody who sat in their session at the summit clearly heard that they use the download.

    Chuck,

    I can assure you snowman is doing nothing of the sort, I'm sure it's to identify wheather or not to work with certain merchants who were excluded because of the relationship with eBates.

    BTW, no return call from Paul yet.
    Continued Success,

    Chuck, I can't for the life of me figure out why you would make that assumption from my initial post. I can assure you that the Moe Money Maker icon and brief description were on their homepage several weeks ago but it no longer is. To me, that suggests that something could have changed regardless of what you heard at a conference 6 or 7 weeks ago.

    Haiko, it had nothing to do with which merchants I affiliate. That has never been a considering factor for me as I've never earned a respectable amount of income with any merchant who wasn't affiliated with Ebates and their ilk.
