ebates credit card not rebranded..

Just got my renewal Ebates visa.   Was expecting them to have rebranded to Rakuten like the site, but maybe Sync still had a lot of old plastic!

@AverageJoesCredit Just when I thought "Bonvoy" rebranding was bad.    "RACK-uh-ten" sounds like something my grandpa would shout out when he's so pissed that he can't think of another swear word fast enough.

Ebates was a good name and made it clear what the service was. Rakuten just sounds weird to me. Don't see why there was a need to change it.

Corporate recognition.

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

- Rhonda Byrne

While ebates is a clear name, it's still only 5% of the Rakuten workforce. Not many here may know the name, but it's a huge Japanese company and maybe they want to expand more into the US.

Yep, Rakuten is spreading the word globally, including a key prized sponsorship of FC Barcelona, a club that famously refused to enter into sponsorship partnerships of any kind until very recently.
