Yahoo Partners with Rakuten (Ebates) for Shopping Portal

Yahoo has launched a new shopping portal at shopping.yahoo.com/cashback. They’ve partnered with Rakuten/Ebates for the portal. In fact, payments track through your Rakuten/Ebates account, so Yahoo is really just the front. See the FAQ here.

I guess the idea is to mainstream shopping portals for people who aren’t used to it, and Yahoo is a more well-known company. Looks like this may also be available somehow in Yahoo Mail for those who use that.

The rates seem largely the same as with Ebates directly. I do, however, see some featured rates that are 1-2% higher. Not sure how this account will interact with the Ebates Membership Rewards version account.

Overall, it may not be worth dealing with another go-between for an occasional slightly higher rate, though heavy shoppers might find it worthwhile. Let us know if you see anything more interesting about this new portal option.

Good for Yahoo!

The UI looks cool, but unless they’re doing a significantly better deal than other shopping portals, I’ll stay away from Yahoo myself.
