If you are doing any of your Christmas shopping online, you should be using Rakuten (previously known as Ebates) to make sure you are getting the most out of your spending! They offer cash back at thousands of stores including Amazon! They also have exclusive online coupons to help you save even more! If you aren’t already a member (it’s free!) you can sign up with my referral link and get a $10 bonus on your first purchase of $25 or more!
The cash adds up really fast, especially during the holidays. Every three months Rakuten sends you your “big fat check” via the method of your choice: paper check, PayPal or American Express Rewards points. To earn cash back you can visit Rakuten, search for the store you want to shop at and click through to it to activate the cash back tracking. The easier way is to download the Rakuten browser extension. It will have a small pop-up to remind you when you are shopping at a Rakuten cash back store and also let you know if there are any coupons available. This is what I use so that I won’t forget and miss out on any cash back opportunities.
If you get the Rakuten app you can also earn cash back in-store! You can find out more about how to do that at the Rakuten website. I haven’t tried this yet because I keep forgetting to set it up but I need to!
