A lot of readers have asked me if Rakuten is legit. If you can really make money and save money with Rakuten. The answer is yes! The first month I used Rakuten I forgot to use it for half my purchases and still made $49.99. After that, I downloaded the app and browser extension.
What is Rakuten
Rakuten (formerly Ebates) is a free program that allows (you) its members to earn cash back or get discounts when you shop online or in stores. It’s free to members because stores pay Rakuten a commission for sending members (you) to their website. Rakuten then splits that commission with you.
You’ll see 2-3% on average for cash back but I’ve also seen 5-15% cash back. It’s essentially free money for clicking a link before making a purchase you already planned on making.
