Rakuten Poll - formerly Ebates Cash Back

#1

Post by PetWatch » Fri Feb 08, 2019 11:31 pm

I just received notice that my Big Fat Check is on its way. It's a good time for a little accounting.

Even if you don't have exact statistics, please take the poll as long as you have a good general sense.

3 Poll Questions: (Unable to fit poll question above, limited to 100 characters)
(should be 0-49% instead of 1-49%)

1.) Cash Back credit was timely posted, remained posted and was paid.

2.) Cash Back credit did not post or disappeared after posting.

3.) Total # of orders ultimately paid.

This should give us a general, or at least some idea of what to expect specially for new comers to Rakuten CB, keeping in mind it is very much individual user dependent based on user reports.

Proper procedure was followed on all orders. (not all watch related)
Verified CB qualification on all orders.
All Shopping Trips posted.

I am only counting orders worth $10 or more in CB.
10 orders
3 (30%) timely posted, remained posted
7 (70%) didn't post or posted then disappeared
5 (50%) were paid

50% of all orders were ultimately credited and paid.
70% required further follow up, monitoring and required at least one missing cash back request.
Of these only 40% were paid (excluded 2 orders that I canceled)

I will follow up on contested orders that have not been paid until there is a final disposition, one is well into the second month.
Highest and third highest $ amount orders that were not paid are equivalent to the total of the BigFatCheck

One $25 referral was posted and paid without issues.

There it is. I will continue using Rakuten (Ebates) as a practical matter, since good savings are possible, however, I will not consider CB as the reason for a purchase, The Deal, only as a potential extra bonus.

Feel free to post your experience.

With ebates, I only had 4 orders that got me at least $10 cash back. All of them posted within 1 day and all of them remained in my account the whole time. $98 deposited to PayPal yesterday!

Befrugal on the other hand, about 50% of my purchases registered, and I had to file a dispute and wait almost a month before it showed up in my account. I just send a request to redeem my payment, and they said it should be deposited within 10 days. I will update if it shows up.

Update. My befrugal cash back showed up in my PayPal today! I am liking both of these services, and will continue to use both. However, as of right now, Rakuten/ebates has been better.

Good to hear that. I have signed up for Befrugal and Lemoney but I haven't done anything with them, maybe it's time to start. I think I have $10 sitting there for signing up with one of them.

Surprised we haven't had more feedback on here considering all the discussion that surfaces from time to time around Rakuten/Ebates Cash Back.

It doesn't have to be for any specific amount or number of attempts, or even 100% precise. If we can get a good number of accounts in one place, simply sharing your experience on a post would be helpful in gauging how reliable CB is overall.
