Cartera Commerce Company Overview
We make shopping more rewarding.
Cartera partners with leading companies who offer their customers loyalty programs. We then give their customers a chance to earn even more of the miles, points or cash back they want by shopping with over 900 retailers they already know and love.
From major airlines to top banks, our partners are highly respected companies who use loyalty programs to reward their customers. We strengthen these relationships, and keep our partner's brand ever-present, by offering their customers even more ways to earn rewards through Cartera-run, partner-branded websites.
In January 2017, Cartera Commerce was acquired by Rakuten Rewards (formerly Ebates). Rakuten Rewards is a leading loyalty marketplace where shoppers can buy millions of products from over 2,000 major retailers and earn cash back on every purchase. Since its launch in 1999, Rakuten Rewards members have earned nearly $1 billion in rewards and saved billions more by taking advantage of coupons, free shipping, and other promotions offered to Rakuten Rewards members. Because shopping with Rakuten Rewards is hassle-free—no fees, no forms and no gimmicks—the company has attracted over 20 million savvy shoppers from around the world who earn cash back on everything from apparel and beauty to travel and sporting goods, both online and in-store. The San Francisco headquartered company was founded in 1998 and acquired by Rakuten, Inc. in 2014.
