Mega Bonus on Lifelock via Rakuten. 80x/80%
At the end of 2019, Rakuten created an alliance with American Express which enabled members to earn Membership Rewards in lieu of cashback. For each 1% you see as a cashback you could opt to earn 1x American Express Membership Rewards. As a result, Rakuten has been one of my favorite ways to earn American Express Membership Rewards for 2020. The latest deal has to do with cyber security and is featuring LifeLock.
Until the end of the day, you can earn 80% back, or as I would choose – 80x Membership Rewards. That is massive. If you’re unfamiliar with how to earn Amex points via Rakuten read this article which lays out how to configure your account.
I was unaware but apparently last year it hit 120x for a day.
I was able to take advantage of this offer a few weeks ago at an astonishing 90%/90x and the points populated my Rakuten account within a day. I wouldn’t be surprised to see that deal come back, but this is 2x the normal earn rate of 40x and a stellar deal. I earned a quick 26k Membership rewards – 1.1c per point. This offer is 1.25c per point.
If you aren’t a Rakuten member…you can get $10 back after spending $25 by using our Referral Link.
Here’s the Lifelock deal – earn 80x or 80% cashback – 1.25c per point
The best deal…annual subscription $296.60 x 80 = 23,728 Membership Rewards
A Trick to help with getting an Annual Pricing to populate with 80x if yours won’t work
* it was noted that it works within the app as well – could be easier than how I did it below. This was my experience a few weeks ago at the 90x rate.
When I initially populated the Lifelock deal via Rakuten, it wouldn’t let me go beyond the screen where I filled in my name, address, etc. I tried it 10 times at least. I even tried to go to Norton and populate there, but it would only show monthly subscriptions. Then… I had the idea to see if I could apply the 90% after I got to the annual billing screen.
How do you do that?
The Rakuten plugin for your browser. I’ve been using this for a few months now and it’s pretty awesome. It gives you a pop up anytime you visit a site that you could earn cashback/Membershipr Rewards. It stays populated the entire time you’re on the site until you either select activate or hit activate later. It’s that little “R” icon and the pop up looks like this:
In order to get the 90% to work on the full year subscription I filled out every single piece of information until I got to the screen with billing options. At this point I hit Activate 90% cash back and voila…it did. I got a notification that it had credited as well.
Recap + thank you for using our referral links. You keep us flying and staying in style!
This deal ends today so if you’re considering it…I’d hope on it.
In the end, you can quickly earn over 23k points on something you may be interested in getting already.
