I can’t think of an easier way to save money on your holiday shopping than to take advantage of Rakuten. I mean, if used correctly, it takes almost zero effort.
Cash Back for Your Online Shopping
If you’re not familiar with Rakuten (formerly eBates), they offer you cash back for your online shopping. For example, right now Rakuten is offering 3% cash back on your Shutterfly online purchases. All you need to do is go to their website, find the Shutterfly store link, click it, and then shop as your normally would.
If you end up spending $100 at Shutterfly a few days later you’ll have $3.00 in your account. Then every so often, Rakuten cuts a check for your total rebate amount across all stores you have shopped at and mails it to you. Easy peasy.
BONUS TIP: If you use Google Chrome as your browser, install the Rakuten Cash Back Button which automatically recognizes when you shop on a website that is eligible for a cash back bonus.

How You Can et $30
Rakuten is running a referral promotion right now and I love it because everyone wins. All you need to do is use my referral link to sign up for a free account. Then when you spend your first $25, Rakuten will add a $30 bonus to your cash back account. They’ll also add $30 to my cash back account. Like I said, we both win.
