Shopping Portals Provide Big Incentives to Shop Elsewhere on Prime Day

If you’re not satisfied with this year’s Amazon Prime Day deals, we’re scouring online shopping portals today in search of the best deals. Rakuten (formerly Ebates) is running a “3x Cash Back” sale for the next three days, which also means you can earn 3x Amex Membership Rewards points on purchases.

Like dining programs, shopping portals are a great way to double-dip, and it’s always worth taking the extra few seconds to sign up and then click through for all your subsequent online shopping sprees.

It’s not just Ebates running promos to compete with Amazon over the next few days, other portals have bumped up rates too. For example, United’s portal is offering 8x miles on Adidas purchases, up from the normal 1x.

If you see a deal you like, don’t wait to book as supplies are limited and the deal won’t last long!

For a full list of increased offers from Rakuten/Ebates, click here. If you’re interested in earning other points or miles, use a shopping portal aggregator like Cash Back Monitor and search for you favorite store to see which portal has the best rates.
