Here at TPG, we love scoring on deals. Well, today, there’s another great deal — this time from Rakuten.

As first reported by Frequent Miler, you can earn $20 (or 2,000 American Express Membership Rewards points) after installing Rakuten’s browser extension. Note that you won’t earn this bonus if you already have the browser extension, but if you don’t, this is an easy way to earn some quick cash. The deal expires on Nov. 19, 2020, and may take seven days to post to your account.

One of the easiest ways to earn bonus rewards on your everyday activity is through online shopping portals, like Rakuten. Rakuten — formerly known as Ebates – became a fan-favorite cashback portal back in February 2019 when new members could start earning Membership Rewards points instead of just cash back. Starting late October 2019, all members can now opt into earning points instead of cash. Plus, Rakuten consistently runs some of the best promotions.

Using shopping portals like this should be an essential part of buying items online, especially during this time when many travelers are at home due to stay-at-home orders connected to the coronavirus outbreak.

If you don’t have an account, setting up one is easy. To start earning bonus cash back or Amex points for your online purchases, begin by visiting Choose how you want to sign-up for an account:

  • Through Google
  • Through Facebook
  • With your email address

From there, follow the on-screen prompts to sign-up for an account. Rakuten is currently offering new members the opportunity to earn $30 by signing up from now through Dec. 31, 2020, spending at least $30 with participating retailers. This is a great way to jump-start your earnings for shopping online.
