Popped open my Rakuten account this morning and noticed 2 targeted offers that I can definitely take advantage of before expiration. The first, is simply spend $10 on ANY STORE via Rakuten, and earn $5 back. No brainer. The second, is specifically with Under Armor and requires the same $10 spend to get $5 back. If you’re like me, and you earn Amex Points, you’ll receive 500 Membership Rewards en lieu of the $5, which is arguably worth $7.50-$10.
- If you’re unfamiliar with Rakuten – read our guide
Here’s a look at the deal
If you don’t have a Rakuten account, this is the best time to get one. Spend $30 get $30 back. You can use our referral
The $30 is worth 3k Amex points if you’d prefer to earn those. If you’re into aspirational travel, this is great way to earn a ton of Amex points every year. If not…just earn the cash back.
As you can see below…in less than a year I’ve earned almost 150k Amex Points.
Emirates Is a real consideration for your Amex points now that taxes and fees have been significantly reduced
Currently the 85k route from JFK to Milan isn’t running, but I have my hunch it will again once Covid clears. Pretty amazing way to hop to Europe.
