    I've been getting the error from various shopping portal links via cattera that tells me that google shopping partners (various stores) won't track my points purchases when I use safari so I need to download a new or different browser. This is dumb enough but even after downloading Chrome to my iPad I still get the same message. It must identify my iPad and assume I'm using safari. There doesn't "seem" to be a way around this. I hope they are aware that Black Friday is coming and the stores could lose a big chunk of revenue from this issue as I know I'm not the only iPad user around.

    Chrome uses Apple's rendering engine (WebKit), so it may be more than an assumption. What Cartera sites have you tried? I'm not in a shopping mode right now, so I haven't seen this.

    I ran into this issue too. Firefox worked for me.

    Please be aware that we cannot guarantee that rewards will post to your account if you are redirected to a mobile - or tablet-optimized merchant website by an online merchant.

    In the case of an online merchant redirecting you to another website to provide a mobile-optimized shopping experience, it is the sole responsibility of the online merchant to track your purchase and allow for contributions to post to your account. It is possible that your transaction will not be tracked in those instances. To ensure that you maximize your rewards, we recommend that you shop using a Windows, Mac or Linux personal computer whenever possible.

    Attention Apple Safari™ Browser Users
    This online store uses a tracking provider run by Google to reward you for your purchases. As a result of a technical issue between Apple and the tracking provider, the Apple Safari browser is unable to track your purchase. You will not earn rewards for purchasing at Target.com using Apple Safari.

    This technical issue affects many online stores - the complete list is below. We want you to earn the rewards you expect when shopping at these online stores, so please make your purchase using another web browser, such as Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer.

    What exactly is the nature of the Google checkout issue with Safari? I'm unlikely to shop through your site for those merchants (or shop at those merchants at all) if I can't use my preferred browser.
