I’ve written extensively about Rakuten and using the portal to rack up serious amounts of Amex points. In fact, for the first quarter of this year I’ll earn over 75k Amex points via Rakuten alone. If you’re unfamiliar with Rakuten and how you can opt into earn Amex points instead of cashback…read this article. Otherwise, let’s get into the good stuff
First off…15x or 15% earn rates
Until May 11th, many stores have had their cashback or Amex multiple increased to 15% or 15x. Stores are added daily, but here’s a sneaky peek – this is open to anyone using Rakuten.
Ends today, May 11th, get $30 via our referral link.
Spend $30 via the portal and get $30 back. Or, if you’re luck us…choose Amex points and get 3k points after a $30 purchase. This is massive, and I believe the best sing up bonus we’ve ever seen. To put it in perspective, the typical referral bonus is $10, so this is 3x the amount, and you help us out by using our link. This is a super simplistic way of looking at it:
How Rakuten Works
After you sign up via Rakuten, you’ll be taken to their portal. The portal is filled with various retailers and when you click on one, you will generate a link to your desired merchant, and the rest is all behind the scenes. In fact, I just used Rakuten last week to make some amazing purchases at J. Crew. It looks like my deal of 50% off already reduced prices is now 40%, but I was able to get many items at 70-80% off retail. J Crew’s debt has dropped to junk and who knows what the future holds with retailers being closed for such a long time, but the deals are insane. I got a few t-shirts for $8 a piece. Nuts.
Obviously, we’d love it if you’d use our referral since there is no limit to how many you can earn, but we also like to share the love. Earning points this way is how we are able keep in the air, but it’s also how you can take the trips of your dreams. So leave them below if you’d like.
