Shopping With Rakuten

As you all know, I love to shop and share finds from some of my favorite brands with you each week. Today, I wanted to share one of my preferred ways to shop these brands, all while earning cashback with Rakuten!

I imagine many of you have seen or heard of Rakuten, wondered what it is, and even how to pronounce the name. I’m going to give you all of the details below!

What is Rakuten?

Rakuten is a free site that partners with stores (over 3,500!) to earn you cash back while shopping brands like Walmart, Adidas, ULTA Beauty, Levi’s, Macy’s, and Kohl’s, to name a few! There’s something for everyone, from fashion to beauty, electronics, and more. With the holiday season upon us, this is a great way to buy gifts for others while giving yourself the gift of cash back.

How do you say Rakuten?

It’s pronounced like this: RACK-uh-ten. Don’t worry; it takes a second to get the hang of how to say it!

How does Rakuten work exactly?

I’m going to show you below with pictures! Signing up is quick, easy, AND free, and you can get started here with my link that gets you a $30 sign-up bonus when you make a qualifying purchase.

Once you sign up via my referral link, you can shop your favorite stores through the Rakuten website, browser extension, or the Rakuten app. Then, you will be paid your cash back every quarter via a check or PayPal. It’s as simple as that!

Add the Rakuten Cash Back Buttoning to your browser extensions or shop with the app.

What I bought through shopping with Rakuten

I ordered a few new pieces from some of my favorite retailers to test out Rakuten and see if it was as amazing as it seemed. I was on the hunt for some new wardrobe staples, such as a blazer, jeans, and a knit top.

You can see what I bought below (everything I purchased is already sold out)! It’s truly amazing how many options there are for stores to shop, including big-name retailers. Plus, think of all you could do with that extra cash back!

My blazer, pants, jeans, and top are all from LIVERPOOL Los Angeles, but unfortunately, it’s already sold out.

These booties are from Macy’s and are also sold out.

Can you believe that this entire outfit earned me cash back? It’s a win-win for sure!

Perks of shopping with Rakuten

As I mentioned above, there really is no catch with shopping with Rakuten! It’s a safe and credible way to earn cashback while purchasing products you love. It’s free to sign up and become a Rakuten user. Now’s the perfect time to do so if you aren’t signed up already. Using my referral link HERE, you’ll get a $30 sign-up bonus when you make a qualifying purchase.

Have you used Rakuten?

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on FacebookPinterest, and Instagram.

Beauty for the Heart™— The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26

Truth: This is a blessing that Aaron and his sons spoke over the people of Israel. It’s also a blessing we use today to ask God’s divine favor to rest upon others.

The blessing has five parts: 1. Bless and protect his people. 2. Smile on them (be pleased with them) 3. Be gracious to them. 4. Show them his favor. 5. Give them peace.

When we ask God to bless others, in a sense, we are asking God to do these five things. Pray a blessing over someone today!

Let your beauty shine from the inside out!

  1. Cyndy, I want to thank you for what you do. I’ve never been a big shopper and haven’t always known what is currently in style so I appreciate seeing what is trending so I can look more up-to-date. I LOVE that you share styles that aren’t too crazy and thanks to you, I feel better about my choices. You once said dressing in style makes you look younger and you are so right! I really appreciate your faith and witness that you included in your posts. May God continue to bless your business as you honor Him with your life!

  2. I have heard of Rakuten, but never understood how it worked. Thanks for explaining it. I’ll have to check it out and see if its something I’d use. The blazer outfit, top and booties look so cute on you.

  3. PS The picture of your grandkids is adorable. I just can’t believe how fast they’ve grown. I started following you in 2015. So Colt was little.

  4. I have a question about Rakuten. I signed up with your bonus $30 if I shop. How does it work if I would for instance decide to shop something off your post or Jo-Lynne’s from like Nordstrom. I usually would shop right from the link you two would give. Now if I go to my Rakuten account to shop through them to Nordstrom to get my cash back, then I’m not giving you guys your money you make from me shopping your direct link on your blog.

  5. Cyndi, your grands are precious!
    I love this verse! Our former pastor always said this blessing over us at the end of the service on Sunday mornings!

  6. Cute photo of the grands! I always enjoy your lovely outfit styles, but find I mostly check in for your Christian message these days. Thank you!

  7. I try to use Rakuten whenever I remember ha ha. So many times I log into my account on individual store websites, load up my cart, and then before I check out I remember to go through Rakuten. All you have to do is go into Rakuten then log into the individual store you were shopping from, and your account opens up with everything still in your cart. That way you are still eligible for any store rewards or points as well as the Rakuten extra cash! It’s a win-win!!
