Angry Kobo No Longer at Ebates

I went to purchase a book at Kobo just now and noticed that my Ebates button didn't go green. When I checked, I found that Kobo is no longer among the stores offering rebates through Ebates.com.

It used to be a very nice deal, especially as the rebate was alway calculated on the Kobo price before any coupons; the 5% back they offered most recenty translated to 95% off during the recent madness. Earlier, their 10% rebate knocked $13 off the price of my Glo, although I bought it with a $60 coupon.

The end of an era. And it makes me wonder if, now that Sony is dead in North America, if Kobo isn't poised to cut back on the deals and discounts. The generous coupons during the most recent contest perhaps suggest the alternative. Frankly, I don't get what's going on, but that's Kobo.

I was never able to receive the Ebates rebate from Kobo. But I'm glad you did. They may be reinstated later. I've seen retailers return after a short absence.

They could just be trying various things to see what sticks (and different things in different markets). They have pretty generous coupons and at some point, they probably have to worry about profit...so maybe they can't keep offering every deal?

I wish I knew about the 10% cash back (not frequent user of ebates), I have been using pandacashback, they used to give 5% as well and it was reduced down recently to 2.5%.
