New to Save Money Shopping Online!

Welcome to Rakuten. The online-shopping (and offline) party you’ve always dreamed of. Where you can earn Cash Back for the things you buy every day. But like any good fairytale, we’ll start at the beginning…

Your account

Now that you’ve signed up for Rakuten, you need to make sure you’re all set to receive your Big Fat Cheque. You have the option of getting your quarterly Cash Back by cheque (in the mail) or paid out directly to your PayPal account. You just need set it up in your account settings.

Emails anyone?

While you’re in your account settings… sign up for our emails, that way you’ll get double (and sometimes triple) Cash Back notifications. You’ll also be notified when we have special promotions like for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Flash Sales, Super App Sundays, and everything in between.

Shopping is better with friends

Not only is it better, but when you Refer a Friend, you both get rewarded. It’s so easy, all you have to do is drop in their email address and they’ll all the info, plus a direct link to sign up. Once they sign up and shop (making a minimum purchase of $25 or more), you’ll both get a Cash Back bonus. It’s a win-win. (And, you might be bumped up to BFF status in return.)

Never miss out

With over 750 partner stores and more added each week, it’s hard to keep up with where you can earn Cash Back. To take the guess-work out of it, add the Rakuten Express extension so you never miss out on a deal, or Cash Back. Once installed, you’ll be alerted to apply Cash Back whenever you’re on a qualifying retailer’s site.

Prefer to shop via mobile? There’s an app for that, too! Download the Rakuten mobile app and you can shop wherever and however you prefer. That includes your morning commute, or at 2 am when you just can’t seem to fall asleep.

Online AND In-Store

That’s right. You can now earn In-Store Cash Back. A few easy steps and you’ll be shopping in-store with the deals and Cash Back you’re used to.

Gift cards

Sometimes a gift card is the perfect gift! Sometimes it helps you save money, not to mention super convenient. And with the Rakuten Gift Card Shop it’s all of the above. Grocery shopping? Get a gift card. Need to fill up on gas? Get a gift card. Travelling? Ordering out? We’ve got gift cards for that, too. Check out the shop and earn Cash Back.

Shopping tips and tricks

We love to shop. What we love even more? Hot Deals and Luxury finds. That’s why we keep tabs on the best offers in the Hot Deals section – from extra savings and bonus Cash Back, to exclusive sales and promotions, and more. It’s all there.

And just because you’re shopping online and looking to earn Cash Back doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your love of luxury. No ma’am! With stores like Coach, Jimmy Choo, Ever New, Lord & Taylor, Neiman Marcus, Shopbop and more, every fashionista will be a happy fashionista.
