Thats a surprise, but I am sure will be much welcomed.
I agree that it's a welcome change from the normal - but I recall a comment about a merger with BT once that said "You don't make a racehorse by shackling two dinosaurs together".... and there are similarities here. Unfortunately, the size and scale of their grip on the market means it's hard for anyone else to get a look-in....... but that situation would hardly be helped by a merger.

No really a surprise , the Competition and Markets Authority realised that it would lead to a more or less monopoly of the cashback world in the UK
the merger gave rise to serious competition concerns because the companies would face only limited competition from other suppliers of cashback websites and similar services, such as voucher websites and comparison sites.
