For those who are frequent online shoppers, Ebates now known as Rakuten provides users with cashback for qualifying purchases. Recently Rakuten and American Express partnered up to allow users to earn Amex points rather than cashback at the same rates. The even better news, is that Rakuten occasionally rolls out special deals allowing members to earn upwards of 10% cashback or over 10 Amex points per dollar. I have been able to earn over 100,00 Amex points in the last six month using Rakuten.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the American Rewards Program, it is a point based system where you can transfer your hard earned points for amazing travel redemption such as premium cabin flights. With a complex network or airline partners, the value of these points can quickly add up.
At the moment only those with an American Express Credit card are eligible for this offer. I don’t think this will change anytime soon.
