Ebates purchased rival shopping portal Splender and now the latter is shutting down. They sent out emails this morning announcing the news.
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.
The shutdown won’t happen immediately. 3/30 will be the last day to shop through Splender.com, but you can still view your account information after that. On 6/29 Splender.com will officially shuts down.
What if I have cash back in my account on 6/30?
$10 or more: You will receive payment as you normally would via check or PayPal. If you haven’t yet, please update all payment preferences by 6/20 so we can pay you!
$9.99 or less: You can only be paid via a PayPal account. Create a new PayPal account or add an existing PayPal account to your Splender account by 6/20.
