What is Rakuten?
Rakuten is an online rebate portal that allows you to get cash back on almost any online purchase. If you are old enough, do you remember in the 80’s and 90’s those in-store rebates? You would have to fill out the rebate form, cut out the product’s UPC symbol and send a copy of your purchase receipt and then wait 8-10 weeks through snail mail for a rebate check? Well with rakuten those ancient rebate rituals are a thing of the past! Good riddance! Your rebates take about 3 days to show up in either or pay pal or a rebate check in the mail.
