Rakuten (previously known as Ebates) is out with yet another promotion, offering 10% cashback rates at more than 100 online retailers. But that big bonus is only active today, Monday, Jan. 13.

There are plenty of stores at which you can get 10% of your purchase price back, from Ray-Ban to Saks Fifth Avenue and Cost Plus World Market to even our favorite baggage store, eBags. Check out the full list of participating stores with 10% cashback rates.

But if you’ve got a card that earns American Express Membership Rewards points, it gets even better. Rakuten recently started allowing all members to earn Amex points instead of cashback. So that 10% bonus works out to 10 points per $1 spent. That’s a great return if you’ve got some online shopping to do after the holidays.

Thrifty Tip: Have the Platinum Card from American Express? Use your brand new $50 credit to Saks Fifth Avenue and make a purchase through Rakuten to earn cashback – or points – on your free (or discounted) items! Check out some of the best things you can buy from Saks for under $50.


How Rakuten Works

Getting in on these cashback bonuses is easy. First, sign up for Rakuten if you haven’t already. As a bonus, you’ll also receive an extra $10 reward after your first purchase of $25 or more through Rakuten by signing up through our link. Full disclosure: We also get a bonus, so we appreciate it if you use our link!

Whether you’re shopping at Amazon and Target or buying a Blue Apron subscription, you’ll get a percentage of your purchase price back from hundreds of stores. You’ll get paid every three months, through either a paper check or a PayPal transfer.

Or you can even set it up to earn American Express points rather than cashback.


Bottom Line

Rakuten is one of the best ways to get something more out of your online shopping. So get in on this 10% cashback rate on hundreds of stores before it’s too late, as it ends Monday, Jan. 13 at 11:59 p.m. PST!
