Rakuten is one of the best ways to earn cashback on purchases you are most likely already making.
Basically, how it works is that you click through Rakuten to the online store and then you receive a designated amount of cash back (or Membership Rewards if you’d like).
I’ll use an example to illustrate.
Let’s say I wanted to buy some shorts from Nike. I’d first check the cashback rate on Rakuten. Right now, I see it is 10% (which is great). I then click “Shop Now” and then it takes me to the Nike store. As long as I don’t purchase any excluded items I will earn 10% back on my entire purchase. It’s very simple.
If you sign up right now you can get $10 back after spending $25. Sign up using this link here.
It’s a great way to get started on Rakuten and after you sign up you can also refer other people you know so that you can earn extra cash back!
