i dont understand how they can prevent anyone from committing fraud by setting up a large BIN auction and creating another paypal account to purchase from himself and to receive the 30% cashback. that is why i only believe in this sort of online rebate program to only be allowed to be used for stores/online stores. Good point, but I would think if numerous cash back rebates are going into the same purchase/e-bay account they will get suspicious. You might be able to get away with it a few times. Might be more trouble than it's worth. But if $200 is the max, then you get away with it 3-4 times, minus all e-bay fees (insertion and final value) and paypal, you could still walk away with a few hundred bucks. I wouldn't do it, not because I see it as "wrong," but because I can't be bothered with this. But I guess if I were starving and going hungry or daddy needed a new pair of shoes, I'd be all over it!
