Swagbucks Shop & Earn Experience Recognized by Rakuten LinkShare

Prodege, parent company of internet loyalty destination Swagbucks.com, announced today that it has been named a finalist in this years' Rakuten LinkShare Golden Link Awards. Since 2004, The Golden Link awards have recognized the most impactful and innovative advertisers and publishers within the affiliate industry. This year, Rakuten LinkShare nominated Swagbucks as a finalist in the Best New Publisher category in recognition of the Q4 launch of their Shop & Earn cash-back shopping experience.

Although there are a number of different ways to earn Swag Bucks currency (redeemable for cash gift cards at the world's top retailers), the company's Shop & Earn cash back rewards product is the most seamless way for members to earn rewards for their everyday activity. Through the Swagbucks Shop & Earn program, members can shop through all their favorite retailers and earn up to 10% cash back.

"Being named a finalist in Rakuten LinkeShare's Best New Publisher category further validates our strategy and objective of being the best cash back shopping destination for consumers," said Michael Yormark. "We know consumers have a choice when it comes to online shopping and we are excited more are choosing Swagbucks as their preferred destination for great cash back deals from our top retailers."

Yormark then congratulated the other finalists in his category by adding, β€œIt's also very humbling to be recognized among the other finalists in our category, each of which are game changing publishers in their own right.”

The winner of this, and other categories from the Rakuten LinkShare network, will be announced this June 17th and 18th at the Rakuten Linkshare Symposium taking place at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square.
