Q. Will surfing online for coupons or other deal sites affect cash back tracking?
A. Yes, most coupon codes or coupon links you find outside of Mr. Rebates can void cash back on your purchases.
Coupons from random Internet websites, including coupon sites, are often linked to specific affiliate merchants. This means that, when the code is used in a transaction, the other site will automatically get credit for your purchase, regardless of whether you clicked through Mr. Rebates before ordering.
Bottom Line: Use coupons found only at Mr. Rebates to insure accurate cash back tracking as using other coupons will often interfere with that cash back tracking.
