While other’s are failing, Internet retailer, Market America continues to grow. Over the past few week’s, we have seen industry giants revamp (and some even close their doors) on their cashback offerings to customers.
“Many of the other sites offering cash back have failed, such as Bing.”
Just recently, Triad Business Journal had the opportunity to interview President and CEO of Market America, JR Ridinger. JR goes on to say that “we are continuing to offer an unlimited cashback program where the consumer’s loyalty to marketamerica.com will truly be rewarded and will not come with conditions.” Talk about a great start to the week!
