Rakuten Creates a 2nd Income Stream
If you are confused and wonder what Rakuten is you may have heard of it with another name called Ebates. I am always looking for new apps that will make my life so much easier whether for financial, organization, or groceries. I love trying to find ways to reduce our spending and increase our savings as much as possible. Finding new apps is something I have a passion for.
Rakuten is not the only money-saving app but is one of my favorites. I, also like to use Swagbucks. Some apps pay you for taking surveys, but if you are short on time this may not be the best way to make additional income plus having to deal with the extra emails you receive. Out of all money saving apps I probably use Rakuten the most.
I do almost all my shopping online because it saves time from going into the actual store. I do shop in actual stores, but not a lot these days. Ebates is a really cool tool to save you money on your normal online shopping.
Rakuten includes coupons and cashback offers at most major merchants including Amazon, Walmart, Kohl’s, and even Turbo Tax. There is no fee to use the service. They make their money from affiliate relationships with these major sites plus much more. When you click through one of their links to visit the site and make a purchase, they receive an affiliate fee from the merchant, and they turn around and share some of that with you.
This is one of my favorite things about Rakuten. You do not even have to remember to go to the Rakuten website first. There is a Chrome browser extension which will notify you if you’ve visited a merchant that participates with the program. You still may have to visit the website because not all deals appear to get picked up by the plug-in.
