BOSTON, Nov. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — OneBigTent announced today it has partnered with market-leading loyalty technology provider FreeCause to launch a first-of-its-kind online bilingual rewards program, Valoramas (www.valoramas.com). Through the Valoramas Shopping Mall, members receive exclusive savings and deals, while a portion of every sale goes to organizations dedicated to serving the Latino community.
The Valoramas Shopping Mall includes more than nine million products from almost 2,000 online retailers, including top retailers such as Target.com, Walmart.com, Best Buy, Sears.com, Apple, Macy’s, The Home Depot, Buy.com, and Toys ‘R’ Us. Members enjoy exclusive offers and content, access to members-only events, and some of the highest cash-back rates available anywhere in the U.S. – on average more than five percent of the purchase price and in some cases as high as 67 percent of the purchase price. The Valoramas Shopping Mall is integrated with the Valoramas Cash Back Toolbar which expands members’ ability to earn; rewarding members for their online search activity while also earning cash back on purchases made at participating retailers.
“We are thrilled to be launching Valoramas, providing Latinos with remarkable savings at the top retailers just in time for the holiday shopping season,” said Alejandra Garza, President of Valoramas. “Valoramas’ mission is to make a difference by providing a home where members can shop, save more, connect, and come together to help expand possibilities in the Latino community. FreeCause’s expertise and technology are a perfect fit for that mission, enabling us to reward our members with unmatched product offerings and savings, which will in turn assist us in supporting organizations serving the Latino community.”
The Valoramas Shopping Mall and Cash Back Toolbar are the latest successful implementation for FreeCause. “FreeCause was founded upon a vision to help drive value for causes through consumers’ everyday actions, and with our expertise building the highest monetizing loyalty technology – we are delivering value for both consumers and their causes with Valoramas,” said Michael Jaconi, CEO of FreeCause. “Valoramas has a noble mission and we are delighted to provide our innovative suite of technology solutions to not only reward their members for their online search and shopping behavior, but also help Valoramas in their support of important programs benefitting the Latino community.”
