Update 5/16 – It’s the last day for Big Give Week. Both Sak’s and Dell seem to have been maxed out, but there’s some decent retailers left at 15x, including Walgreens and CVS. The $40 referral offer is still open as well, the best new member offer we’ve seen from Rakuten in ages.
Today, Rakuten starts a new promotion, called Big Give Week, that runs until 16th. Rakuten is offering up to 15% cash back (or 15x Membership Rewards) at quite a wide selection of merchants.
New members can receive a $40 bonus via referral, a terrific offer for Rakuten. If you’re already a Rakuten member, you can get the same $40 bonus for referring others.
There’s also a somewhat random NBA tie-in to this promotion. If members spend $75 or more from select stores, they will be eligible to receive a free limited-edition Starter jacket while supplies last…and they probably won’t last long.
- Earn up to 15% cash back or 15x Membership Rewards on Rakuten until May 16th on select merchants by clicking through the Rakuten portal.
- Spend up to $75 through the Rakuten portal at select stores and you will be eligible to receive an NBA Starter jacket (while supplies last)
- Expires 5/16/22
- If you don’t have a Rakuten account, there’s a $40 bonus referral bonus for new members who sign-up and spend at least $40 through the portal within the first 90 days. If you do have an account. If you’d like to use one of our referral links, you’ll find them below. We’ll get $40 as well.
While this is a very good deal for cashback, when you use Rakuten you can earn Membership Rewards instead of the cash, which I find much more valuable. At our current RRV’s, that makes the 15x bonus worth approximately 23% back. That’s…pretty good.
Dell and Sak’s are both back to normal.
The fact that Dell and Saks are is listed at a full 15x is incredible, as you can earn 15x Membership Rewards AND burn those pesky Platinum credits. The Dell offer specifically says that it’s for “Dell Technologies For Work” but when you click through the “Work” link, it goes to the usual Dell.com consumer site, so it should work for Dell credits. Greg made a purchase on the site and confirmed that it did track through Rakuten.
