The shopping portal Rakuten, formerly known as eBates, currently has a promotion offering a $30 refer a friend bonus. New members sign up through my referral link will receive a $30 bonus and I’ll get a $30 bonus too. To qualify for the $30 sign up bonus the new member needs to spend $30 through Rakuten. The promotional period is from August 12, 2020 to December 31, 2020 (“Offer Period”). Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Referral Program Terms, this offer is valid only if the referral signs up and completes their qualifying purchase within 90 days.
I’ve had pretty good luck with Rakuten properly tracking my shopping purchases. If you look at the little image at the beginning of this post you can see they’ve paid me over $400 in cash back. Rakuten usually doesn’t have the highest cash back rates, but several times a year they run promotions making them the highest-paying portal for some merchants. This is quite a bit higher than their usual sign up bonus and should be easy money for most people who haven’t previously signed up for Rakuten. Here again is my Rakuten referral link.
