Saving Money

Rakuten (previously “Ebates”)

Rakuten is a cash back website/app that pays you a rebate after you open an account and use the link on their website/app to shop. Once it is directed to the shopping site, you shop as usual and it won’t add any additional costs. Here is my detailed review on how to use Rakuten to earn money For any qualified purchases, Rakuten will give you a certain percentage of the purchase. When you sign up using my link (free to join), you will get $10 after you spend $25.

TopCashback is another great app/website that offers cash back for online shopping from  stores like Amazon, Gap, Macys, Home Depot, and many more. Their website often offer promotions for certain online stores.
