Once installed, RebateRobot adware will display various available coupons on shopping websites. It shows discount information of products that you have searched, viewed or maybe you will be interested in. And other ads such as pop-up, pop-under, interstitial ads, banner, and in-text link ads will appear constantly. They always attempt to mislead you to one website or purchase the product it displays.

As for the fact that all ads and coupons are always related to what you have browsed and searched for or those you like, the RebateRobot extension installing on your browser plays an important role.
