The Rakuten Welcome Bonus

The Welcome Bonus is a cash bonus or gift card we offer to new Rakuten members, as a way of thanking them for joining the Rakuten family.

Qualifying for your bonus

You will receive a Welcome Bonus after you spend $25 or more within 90 days of becoming a member by shopping:

  • At any store on that offers Cash Back
  • At any store on the Rakuten Mobile App that offers Cash Back
  • At participating Rakuten In-Store Cash Back merchants

We will send a confirmation email to notify you when you have qualified to receive your Welcome Bonus.

How you’ll get paid for your bonus

Payments are sent out quarterly. Depending on how you choose to receive Cash Back payments when you set up your Rakuten account, we will mail a Big Fat Check to your mailing address or send a PayPal payment to your PayPal account.
