Today Only: Earn 10X Amex Points or 10% Cash Back at 150+ Stores

Written by Charlie

Today only, do some shopping online and earn 10X Amex points or 10% cash back at over 150 stores! This includes some great ones like Staples, Under Armour, and many more!

Today only, you can take advantage of a nice increase on a shopping portal bonus through Rakuten – this translates to 10X Amex points (if you have an Amex Membership Rewards card – read more about it here) or 10% cash back at a whole bunch of popular stores! If you are not yet enrolled in Rakuten (free to do), check out this post for information on getting a free $30 back on your spending!

Earn 10X Amex Points or 10% Cash Back at 150+ Stores

Link: Rakuten Bonus for Today | Sign-Up and Get $30 for Free This is a personal referral link that gives me Amex points as well – thanks!

First, Sign-Up!

If you do not have a Rakuten account, today is definitely a day to have one! If you sign-up (free) using my link, we will both get some cash back after you spend at least $30 online with your favorite retailers – and then get that $30 back!. Sign up here to get started!

Next, Choose Your Payout!

If you have an American Express Membership Rewards card, you will likely want to earn Membership Reward points instead of cash back since they are even more valuable than cash! To do that, simply select that option when you sign-up. Even though everything will say “cash back”, if you selected Amex points, you will earn Amex points – 1 for every 1% earned.

Here are some of my top picks for the 10X points / 10% cash back:

  • Under Armour
  • Macy’s
  • Overstock
  • Old Navy
  • Petsmart
  • Lenovo
  • Groupon
  • Ray Ban
  • Eastbay
  • (this one is at 20x/20%!)
  • Staples
  • Over 100 more!

Definitely take a look and – remember, you cannot use a coupon code that is not provided by Rakuten or that is available on the retailer home page or you may lose your cash back/points!

Also, pay attention to the terms on each retailer’s page to make sure you are buying things that are eligible for earnings.
