About this Deal

Buy.com joined the Rakuten family in 2010, making the joint businesses combined into one of the world's largest online retail marketplaces. We offer consumers more than 90 million products from 38,500 merchants around the globe. Buy.com becoming Rakuten.com Shopping is the next step of that relationship as the Rakuten Group increasingly unifies its brand internationally. This transition will open up the Rakuten.com Shopping (formerly Buy.com) marketplace to customers globally, as well as introducing merchants and retailers from around the world to its North American customer base. Both its merchants and its consumers will benefit from this open, global market.

I had wondered if something like that was coming, but I agree it's easier to spell BUY heehee

Wow...I started doing some searches, and I hope the revert back to something close to the old format. I see all DealsPlus posts now have rakuten.com where they were buy.com but none I've opened go to anything but the main page...that is understandable. What is not understandable are the product descriptions. Holy smokes, am I confused.

I just figured out what happened. When going through a DealsPlus link the URL starts with the word global: http://global.rakuten . com Through my email, it's got www: http://www.rakuten . com ...whew!
