Ebates Credit Card Becoming Rakuten Cash Back Visa Credit Card (July 2019)

Good afternoon everyone.  I just got an email from Ebates / Rakuten regarding the Ebates Cash Back Visa Credit Card.  Starting in early July, the Ebates Cash Back Visa Credit Card is going to be rebranded to the Rakuten Cash Back Visa Credit Card.  The email also shows the first look at the new credit card.  I like the pretty colors on the credit card that match the new Rakuten logo.

Expecting an Ebates/Rakuten Quarterly Payment? Choose an eGift Card with up to a 15% Boost [Updated with Redemption Process]

Updated 7:45pm on 5/1/19: I decided to redeem my cash back for a Nike eGift Card.  Scroll to the bottom of the post to see the redemption process.


Good afternoon.  Last year, I wrote a similar post: Expecting an Ebates Big Fat Check? Get up to a 20% Bonus with an eGift Card Instead! I decided to do an updated post with May’s quarterly payments.  I just got the following email from Ebates / Rakuten with an option to select an eGift Card with a boost of up to 15% vs. waiting for my Big Fat Check to arrive in the mail.  Let’s see if those eGift Cards are good deals and which merchants are offered.  I clicked the See All E-Gift Cards button in the email.

Stack Grubhub $10 First Purchase Bonus with American Express Gold Card $10 Dining Credit

Good afternoon everyone.  Earlier today, I wrote How to Enroll in American Express Gold Card Benefits ($120 Dining Credit & $100 Airline Fee Credit).  In that post, I said that I used the $10 monthly Dining Credit for Grubhub.  Grubhub is a food delivery service that will deliver food to you (for a fee) or you can pick up your food (without a fee).  I decided to sign up for Grubhub and use my American Express Gold Card (my referral link) to get the $10 Dining Credit.  Grubhub recently joined Ebates / Rakuten, but only in their app.  As you can see, when I search Ebates / Rakuten on my PC for Grubhub, nothing shows up…

But when I use the Ebates / Rakuten app, I can see Grubhub.  If you are not an Ebates / Rakuten member, you can create a free Rakuten account here (my referral link).  After you join Rakuten, download the app (iOS or Android) and go to the Grubhub page.  If you are a new Grubhub user (like I was), you can earn $10 cash back on your first order.  If you are a repeat Grubhub user, you only get 1% cash back.
