About Rakuten

Get paid to shop online. Rakuten pays you a percentage of your subtotal any time you shop with an affiliated store.

  • You can select a check, PayPal or a gift card (for an increased percentage back). Checks mailed or PayPal transferred quarterly. There is a $5 minimum to cash out, so anything less than that will carry over into the next quarter.
  • Most claims are processed electronically and appear within a few hours. You can file a missing payment inquiry as soon as you’d like if the money does not appear.

Add the stores you love to shop at in your favorites. In addition to listing them all in your profile to easily see the percentages for fast comparisons, your special emails (as long as you’re subscribed to them) will be more focused around your favorites.

Rakuten will at times release bonus cash back offers that are paid in addition to the standard percentage for a retailer. These are targeted offers that can be viewed from your activity page. If there are no offers when you check, you have no active offers at the moment.

In-Store Cash Back Rakuten

If you link Visa or American Express credit cards to your Rakuten account, you can get cash back for using those cards on select in-store purchases. You will need to link each retailer you want to each credit card you add.

There are participating retailers constantly change, but popular ones including: SAKS Fifth Avenue, Sephora, The Body Shop, and more will be available at times. Periodically check the list to make sure you have them all and your connections are in order before purchasing. Sometimes the connection will drop after you redeem an offer. You cam add it back on though. Read more about this program.
