Right now is one of the best times to make sure you are maximizing all of your online shopping purchases. And one of the best ways to do this is to use an online shopping portal. While there are many sites to use to earn cash back or points and miles, right now is one of the best offers you’ll find.

Rakuten, formerly known as Ebates, is offering $30 to all new members. The only requirement to earn the free money is that you must spend $30 through a partner merchant online. Essentially this means you are getting your $30 of purchased items for free. You must, however, create your account through a referral link. Going straight to the Rakuten, site will only earn you one-third of the bonus amount. You must sign up by May 1, 2020. (HT: Pizza in Motion). 

Best of all, if you refer your friends, you can also get $30 as a referral bonus. The only requirement here is that your friend must complete the $30 of purchased items requirement for your bonus to kick in. There is also no cap to the amount of money you can earn through the refer-a-friend bonus.

Now, for those of you who have no idea what an online shopping portal is, here is my quick explanation:

“It is an online website that you go to first when you are looking to purchase an item online. From the shopping portal, you’ll search for the desired store you are looking to make the purchase at (i.e., Gap, Macy’s, REI, 1-800-FLOWERS, etc.) and you will then be taken directly to the merchants website. You’ll then continue to shop at that merchant the same exact was as if you went to the site first. Your purchase is tracked in the background and you’ll then earn points, miles, or cash back (depending on the site used) for your purchase. There is absolutely no reason not to earn these extra points/miles or free money! It literally takes an extra minute of your time.”

Moving forward, I also recommend using and to compare sites to see the best return — as there are many online shopping portal sites.
