Seriously, I am so excited about this!!

If you’ve been a reader for sometime, you likely have heard me talk about Rakuten but if you haven’t, let me refresh your memory…

Rakuten offers cash back, deals, and shopping rewards on a wide array of products and services, and they have a membership base of 17 million users in the United States alone, who have earned over $3.7 billion in cash back at their favorite stores to date​3.

Basically, you sign-up, create a free account and shop through their website at your favorite stores like Walmart, Target, etc.

Then, you earn cash back on your eligible purchases.

Now, if you are NOT a member, you have the lucky chance to get $40 cash back after your first purchase of $40 or more. That means, you spend $40, get $40 in cash back making your purchase free or cheap!

Now, when you combine that with Walmart’s Black Friday Deals, you are going to save a TON of money on things like holiday decor, toys and other gift items.
