The new member offer for Rakuten (formerly called Ebates) is: get $10 cashback for your first $25+ purchase from any retailer on their site. Here are a few reasons why some of my readers are not using Rakuten, a cash-back site, but why they should try it:
1. “I’m skeptical because it sounds too good to be true”
It’s true! Rakuten pays their members the cashback they’ve earned every three months and they are one of the original cash-back shopping sites.
2. “It’s not enough cashback to bother with”
Pennies add up, so while the cashback from one specific purchase may not be much – the cashback from ten purchases will add up fast!
3. “It’s too complicated”
It’s one extra step – you visit Rakuten.com before shopping online and find the store you want to shop at (almost every online store is there).
4. “I don’t use PayPal”
You don’t have to get your cashback via PayPal. Rakuten is happy to mail you a check every three months or give you American Express Membership Rewards points.
5. “I don’t shop online”
Get the Rakuten mobile app because you can earn cashback for in-store deals too!
If you love to earn cash back using Rakuten, I’d love to hear from you! Please leave a comment or email me.
