An easy way to earn & save with your holiday shopping – Rakuten
Get ready to earn $$ during big holiday sales! (This REALLY easy.)
Get ready to save during your online holiday shopping – whether it’s Black Friday or Cyber Monday – or even just “create your own sale” Wednesday. You can easily earn cash using Rakuten.*
Right now, once you spend $40 at any of Rakuten’s online stores, you get $40 back in cash!
How does it work?
You can also find thousands of coupons, promo codes and exclusive deals at Rakuten. The great thing about using their codes is they actually work, unlike a lot of promo codes you find online, AND if you install the extension on your browser, Rakuten will alert you every time you’re on one of their stores’ pages, and will also apply coupons at checkout.
You can also add your credit cards for more automatic cash back, although I have not personally elected to do this.
Every quarter, Rakuten will mail you a “big fat check.” Since 2011, I’ve personally earned over $5,000 in cash back (I do most of my shopping online).
Sometimes, they also offer double points, or extra points for certain stores or certain sales.
These are my free money earnings from this quarter’s online shopping:
Using Rakuten is simple and free.
Here is a small example of the stores where you can earn cash back. I would estimate that 90% of online stores are on Rakuten and right now the during holiday shopping season, the cash back is really high for many popular stores:
