These days there are plenty of ways to earn a few extra dollars without going out of your way at all. Perhaps one of the best examples of this is making money from something you were going to do either way. And that’s where Rakuten comes in. Rakuten is a site that gives you cashback from all your purchases, and right now you can earn an extra $10 just by using our Rakuten referral code.
What is Rakuten?
Quite simply its a cashback site, where they give you cash every time you spend money on a store. You will get a few percent and sometimes more than 10% cash back when you shop. This is particularly attractive when you were going to make the purchase anyway, such as getting 5% cashback from Amazon. Let’s face it, you already buy from Amazon, so why not get money back along the way, it’s basically free!
Rakuten is one of, if not the, most popular cashback site. It purchased EBates many years ago and rebranded to Rakuten in 2019. Ebates has been around for decades (since 1999) and has paid out $1B (yes that is a B for billion) in cash back rewards, it has more than 10 million users.
That’s right, $10 absolutely free. Well there is a catch (isn’t there always). First you will need to signup using our Rakuten referral code link. Once you have that completed all you need to do is spend your first $25 and you will get the $10 free, which is in addition to the cashback earned on the $25.
What sites does Rakuten have cashback for?
This is a common question and the answer is basically most of them. There are too many to go into detail, but there are literally hundreds, maybe even thousands of supported sites that you can earn cashback from. Beyond just earning cashback Rakuten also seeks out promo codes that you can use to earn additional discounts. This effectively lets you earn twice.

SalaryMe.com recommends PocketFlip and Cash Pirate, which we have cashed out multiple times from. While slidejoy is a pretty solid money making app, if you want to make more than $20 per week with these you are going to need to install multiple ones. That’s the only way to make a lot of money with your phone. There are also some higher value money making apps that we will discuss in future posts.
