Fatwallet.com Website Review

The time is nigh at hand when I will purchase 100% of my Christmas gifts online. Every year I come closer to the goal of sitting on my fat ass for the entire Christmas shopping season while tired Mothers awake at 4AM the day after Thanksgiving, worried husbands shop on Christmas eve at the Flying J, and panicked parents pay exorbitant costs for the last scraps of toys on the shelves.

If you despise most of the human population as I do, you definitely need to follow my lead, and become a regular visitor to fatwallet.com. This website should be one of your main sources of information when searching for online deals and coupons.
This isn't one of those coupon sites where you'll find the same lame coupon for free shipping at Old Navy either. This is like having a buddy who has all the answers to the tests in college. You can't believe how lucky you are to be on the "inside."
The staff at fatwallet have put together a smorgasbord of coupons, cash-back, and forums where users share their deals.
While the coupons are OK...this is not the bread and butter of the site. The forums generate an extremely high amount of "deals" that are posted by users of the site.
For example, if I found a closeout on drugstore.com for Durex pink glow-in-the-dark condoms which were only a couple months past their expiration date, I could post this deal on the "hot deals" forum. The users could comment and rate how good the deal is. Personally, I wouldn't pay more than 5 bucks for a box of used condoms...but that's just me.
The unfortunate thing with the site lies in the irony of the website name. After spending a decent amount of time on the site, you'll have nothing resembling a fat wallet. Quite the contrary. Your newegg, Visa, and Amex accounts will definitely be inching higher after you find a sweet deal on a 50" Plasma, I-roomba vacuum, and Omaha steaks. (BTW...Omaha steaks are well known to renege on an online deal, and their name should be spoken with vile and distrust around the forums. I once thought I had a sweet deal on a grundle-load of steaks and burgers only to be virtually slapped in the face with a cancellation notice.)

Also nice on the site is the cash-back feature. When you make a purchase from a partner website, you can earn anywhere from 1-10% cash back on your purchase.
There are also multiple forums for financial advice, free crap on the Internet, and how to get free dinner at golden corral if you have no arms or legs. (OK, I made that last part up, but don't you think you could get free dinner anywhere if you had no arms or legs? I'm just saying that you should look at the silver lining)
In fact, you'll find a future review for a "free item" I am receiving from PETA. It's so freaking awesome, I think I just peed my pants a little.

Needless to say, I score sweet deals on toys, electronics, and multiple other items from this site on a regular basis. The site has literally saved me thousands of dollars since I have become a member.
If the nuances of online shopping, finding a good deal, and avoiding 300 pound women fighting over a discounted Candy Land game are difficult to grasp, please stick with your regular routine. Otherwise, fatwallet.com garners a strong 4-star rating, only to be dinged by the fact that someone isn't actually moving the mouse for me while I balloon to another high in weight. Isn't online shopping easy?!!
