I've had problems with the following retailers/cash back sites and choose another.  I don't use:

Topcashback with Vitacost.  I use Rakuten with Vitacost, because I can still use a code with it.

ebay with Retailmenot

HTH1

 

I use TCB with Vitacost and use codes and always get my credits, TCB is usually higher % back. 


It's been my experience that this only works if the codes are posted on TCB.  If I use a code outside of TCB, it has not worked for me.  However, with Rakuten, I can use codes posted outside of Rakuten, and they work.  My experience only.

Nope, I have even used special codes Vitacost has sent me good for only me, and TCB has always given me my credits.

I have used Rakuten for years now and it says I have gotten back over $900 in the past five years, it started as Ebates.. I use it all the time, I just got another check this week for only about $23.00 but it didn't cost me a thing ..

I just got back $16 from Rakuten, they are very nice to deal with, but quite often their cash back rates are at the bottom of the barrel. It never pays off to use them exclusively.
