Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 01, 2013
Swagbucks.com, the web’s foremost destination for earning online rewards, is honored with Rakuten LinkShare’s Golden Link Award for Best New Publisher.
The Golden Link Awards have celebrated excellence among the industry’s most innovative advertisers, publishers, and agencies within the affiliate industry since their inception in 2004.
Earlier this month, Rakuten LinkShare announced Swagbucks.com (owned by Prodege LLC) as a finalist in this year’s Best New Publisher category, based on the launch of their personalized Shop & Earn cash back shopping product. Thereafter, Swagbucks was given the title, edging out stiff competition from other successful national brands.
Although it's just one of many ways Swagbucks.com members are awarded for their online activity, Shop & Earn has quickly become one of the site’s most popular earning channels. Through Shop & Earn, Swagbucks.com members can shop at their favorite retailers while earning up to 10% cash back from purchases.
Since launching in 2008, Swagbucks.com has awarded its over 8 million registered members with over $40 million dollars in real life rewards. In addition to Shop & Earn, Swagbucks.com members can earn rewards for their everyday online activiites including playing games, watching videos, searching the web, and discovering new products and services.
“We are truly honored to have received this award and be recognized among such innovative publishers,” said Prodege co-founder and COO Scott Dudelson. “The work of so many went into making Swagbucks a destination for customers. It’s exciting to know that we are making an impact in such a creative, innovative industry.”
