Rakuten: Refer A Friend & You Both Get $30

For a limited time, Rakuten (formerly called eBates) is offering $30 to both you and your friend when you refer them to become a member.

About Rakuten

Rakuten is one of my favorite cash back sites that gives you a portion of your money back when you shop at your favorite online stores.

For instance, Rakuten is offering 7% cash back when you shop at Nike. If you buy a $100 pair of sneakers, you’ll get $7 back for your purchase. This is on top of any coupons or discount codes you use!

It’s free to join and costs absolutely nothing. If you want to learn more about cash back sites and how they can do this, I give more details in this post.

With most of us shopping from the comfort of our home, there shouldn’t be a reason why you’re not using sites like this to save more money.


Rakuten $30 Refer-A-Friend Offer

Now through May 1, when you refer a friend, you both will get $30 each. The sign-up bonus will post once they become a member and spend $30 at any store. New to Rakuten? Claim your bonus with the referral link below:

The Bottom Line

This is really a money maker for the person being referred. Not only will they get $30 when they spend $30, but they’ll also get the cash back offer at that particular store!

If you’re new to Rakuten, this is an excellent opportunity to join and essentially get paid for doing so.

All in all, this is a generous promotion because the person referring normally gets $25 and the person being referred only gets $10. This is a significant increase for people who don’t already have an account.
