Back in June we announced that Gizmodo had buried a snipet at the bottom of one of their deals, explaining why they would no longer be posting Rakuten deals. As far as we know, nothing has changed at Rakuten! I think there is less talk of the fraud these days because many deal hunters don’t shop there anymore, or pay via alternative “safer” methods.
Yet here we are, a few months later, and Gizmodo is sneaking Rakuten deals back onto their page.
I don’t know about you, but it’ll be a long time (if EVER) before I even think of shopping at Rakuten again. They have caused enough headaches in my life…
Thank you, Barrister, for bringing this to our attention!
