Rakuten.com is offering $30 back in Rakuten Super Points when you pay with a Mastercard directly (not via PayPal) on orders of $100 or more. This promo is scheduled to run until 12:59pm PST on 12/25 and points will be valid for 1 year from the date they are awarded, though the terms indicate that points can not be used for the purchase of gift cards.

The Deal

  • Not valid on purchases made using Paypal.
  • Valid from 12/20/18 at 12:00AM (PST) until 12/25/18 at 11:59PM (PST) or until promotional funding is exhausted, whichever occurs first
  • Rakuten Super Points™ will be earned only once per household.
  • Points will be available within 24 hours after order shipment and will expire 1 year (365 days) thereafter.
  • Individuals will receive an email when points are available.

Quick Thoughts

I haven’t ordered from Rakuten in a long time, but I’ve never had a problem in the past and have received promotional points as expected when they’ve run similar promotions.

Keep in mind that you’ll need to check out directly with Rakuten — the terms state that checking out via PayPal will not trigger this offer.

Overall, this looks decent if you’re shopping with Rakuten today and have a Mastercard. I’m not sure whether or not Rakuten purchases earn 3x on the Citi AT&T Access More, but that’s probably the card I’d try if you have it.
