Rakuten

What is Rakuten?

Rakuten is an e-commerce and affiliate marketing company that purchased Ebates in 2014. Rakuten members can use a link on the Rakuten website or app to shop at their favorite online stores and marketplaces. These stores then pay a customer referral fee to Rakuten, and Rakuten pays you a portion of the merchant payout. In other words, you get money back on every purchase.

This business platform gives you, the customer, the option of receiving money back when you shop through this innovative affiliate marketing platform and site. As a Rakuten member, you can earn money by purchasing anything from household cleaning supplies to holiday gifts.

 

Cash-back earnings

On the Rakuten homepage, you can look through various cash back offers. The amount of cash back you receive will, for the most part, depend on the brand you order from; cash back can range from 1% to around 20% — and there is no limit to how much money you can cash out.

For example, by clicking through Rakuten, you could typically earn 3% cash back on Ulta Beauty purchases, 2.5% cash back on GameStop purchases, 3% cash back on JCPenney purchases, and 1.5% cash back on Nike purchases. So, for example, if you spend $100 at Ulta Beauty, you will earn $3.

More popular retailers, such as Walmart and Amazon, have stricter rules about what you can earn cash back for. Rakuten cash back is currently available for purchases of certain Walmart items — Rakuten cash back is not available for purchases of furniture, health, camping gear, or Apple products, to name a few. Amazon purchases are not currently eligible for cash back.

You will receive your total cash back earnings quarterly via PayPal or a physical check mailed to your address (depending on which option you chose). You can view your cash back earnings history in your account at any time, and it will also tell you when you can expect your next payment.
