Gizmodo Announces They Will No Longer Post Rakuten Deals 3


Buried in a deal post on Gizmodo, there is a little writeup explaining why they will no longer post Rakuten deals on their site. I wish some other sites would take the same stance for the time being. Hopefully they will in time.

Gizmodo bans Rakuten deals

Here is a snippet:

“Apparently many users on Slickdeals have had fraudulent credit card charges shortly after ordering from Rakuten Marketplaceā€”the same program that most of these sweet deals have been coming from. Of course, it’s a thread full of anonymous bargain shoppers, but some of the accusations seem serious. So we’re not going to post any more deals from Rakuten until further notice.”

Bravo, Gizmodo! Bravo.
