Attention all shopping portal shoppers, Splender (another shopping portal) will no longer be available March 30, 2017. In the month of January, Ebates acquired Cartera Commerce, which is a leading provider of rewards programs & loyalty marketing solutions whom launched a cash back portal as you know as Splender. Cartera Commerce runs most of the airline shopping portals that you may use today. Now that the Catera Commerce is under Ebates, the company is ending Splender entirely and encouraging members to use Ebates instead.
Here is the email we received: “Big news, Danny. Splender has joined the Ebates family. Because Ebates really is the best at this whole cash back thing, we are delighted to let them take the lead from now on! We hope you decide to continue your cash back experience by joining and shopping through Ebates:”
Good news for you! Since Ebates bought out Splender, they are now sending out an email bonus offer for switching over from Splender to Ebates. You can earn a $10 welcoming bonus for joining Ebates (sign up for a new Ebates Account via HMB) and spending $25 within the first 90 days AND an additional $15 bonus when you spend $50 or more by April, 15, 2017.
