Two Deals: 20% Back in Points and $15 Off with Apple Pay on Rakuten

Written by Charlie

If you want to get some nice deals on tech products and more, check out these deals! Rakuten is giving 20% back in reward points and another deal of $15 off $100 when you use Apple Pay. Either one is a nice way to save some money!

If you don’t know what Rakuten is, they are basically an online portal connecting customers with the stores you are likely already familiar with. It is very similar to Google Express. Rakuten has had some amazing deals already and now they are back with two more that could prove to be a big help.

If it helps, this is the same site that I wrote about having the awesome deal of $240 for the Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II as well as some great Garmin deals (both of which I took advantage of).

20% Back in Points

The 20% back in points can be very valuable and does not require any code. Just add your items to your cart and you will see the amount of points you will receive. The best part? There is a high cap of 50,000 points ($500)! That means you could buy a $2,000 camera (yes, there are some people that would like to do that since that range is the new sweet spot in mirrorless cameras) and get $400 back in points to spend as soon as that camera ships. In other words, you can get the camera and get a lens with the reward points earned on the camera.

Or, you could buy a laptop and earn enough points to go back and grab a tablet. The same could be done with drones – get a drone and get enough reward points to buy or put towards a GPS watch. There are a lot of options! With big sellers like Adorama on there, there are a lot of deals available for multiple items.
