Get Cash Back! Really!!

My Husband recently downloaded the app Rakuten (formerly called eBates). I had never heard of it before and to be honest, I was skeptical. He told me it was an app that you can use to earn cashback on all your online purchases.

I told him that I have used apps like this before and they make you fill out surveys or earn a gazillion points before you can cash out and that it was a waste of time. He convinced me that it was really easy and worked.

Though reluctant, I decided to try it out. Samantha needed new soccer cleats and Rakuten was having a deal that was 15% cashback on Adidas purchases. I went to the app followed the directions:

  1. Start at Rakuten: On the Rakuten website or in the Rakuten App, click the store where you want to shop.
  2. Shop Like Always: Place an order and we’ll automatically add Cash Back to your account.
  3. Choose How to Get Paid: We’ll send your Cash Back via PayPal or check.

It was surprisingly easy with no glitches. Took me right to the Adidas website, I made my purchase just as normal using the credit card that was linked with the Rakuten site. Now I waited to see if we would get the cashback. Within a few hours, my husband showed me that we received $18 directly into our PayPal account. I hated to admit it, but this time he was right and I was wrong. It was super easy and no gimmicks. Now I have to just remember to open up Rakuten before I shop, its truly like free money.
