The Many Ways to Earn Cash Back With Rakuten
We offer several features and tools, so you can earn Cash Back in the ways that work best for you.
The Rakuten Mobile App
Our 4-star Rakuten App ensures you’re always connected to savings.
To get started, visit your app store to find the Rakuten App and download it onto your mobile device. Once you’ve downloaded the app, you can activate a Rakuten Shopping Trip by clicking a Rakuten link.
When you’ve started a Shopping Trip, a window will open within the Rakuten App that lets you know that Cash Back has been activated. That window will then direct you to the store’s site to start shopping. If for any reason that store does not offer Cash Back through the mobile app, you will be notified in the activation window.
The Rakuten Cash Back Button
Our Cash Back Button is an automated tool that proactively finds discounts and lets you earn Cash Back — without visiting Rakuten first.
To get started, first visit your browser store, search for the Rakuten Cash Back Button and download it. Once you’ve downloaded the Cash Back Button, you’ll see it in your browser bar.
Then, when you visit a store’s website, you’ll get a drop-down notification of the Cash Back and coupons offered at that store. Simply click on that drop down to start earning Cash Back, without interrupting your shopping.
You can also activate Cash Back through the Cash Back Button icon that appears on your browser bar by clicking on store cards, coupons and more. In both cases, you will be notified that Cash Back has been activated.
If for any reason, the store does not offer Cash Back through the Cash Back Button, the notification will not appear.
The Rakuten Cash Back Visa® Credit Card
For even more savings, get the Rakuten Cash Back Visa® Credit Card and earn unlimited additional Cash Back rewards, with no annual fee.
You can earn Cash Back by simply using your Rakuten Cash Back Visa® Credit Card online and everywhere else Visa credit cards are accepted. Qualifying purchases made online through Rakuten and Ebates are eligible to earn an extra 3% Cash Back, while all other purchases are eligible for 1% Cash Back.
Note: There are Exclusions & Limitations to earning Cash Back with the Rakuten Cash Back Visa® Credit Card.
In-Store Cash Back
Now you can enjoy Cash Back, even when you shop in a brick and mortar store.
To get started, link your credit or debit card to your Rakuten account. Then, when you find an In-Store Cash Back offer that interests you, simply activate it and shop in the store with that card.
Note: There are Exclusions & Limitations to earning Cash Back with In-Store Cash Back.
