This month is huge for cashback for multiple portals, including two big promotions.
Rakuten (formerly, Ebates) is doing $40 cashback for $40 in spend (100% cashback) for brand new accounts. They also increased cashback for existing accounts.
(One account allowed per individual).
Ibotta is doing a promotion for Walmart where you can get Thanksgiving items for 100% cashback. (For new and existing accounts).
The details follow:
If you don’t have Rakuten, you can sign-up for Rakuten here. With this link, you get a $40 cashback bonus (normally $10). After signing up, you can go here to get the browser extension if you’d like to be notified whenever you can get cashback.
You need to spend $40 to get the $40 cashback, which equals 100% cashback for your first $40 in purchaes.
With that extension, you can apply coupons automatically and activate the cashback instantly on websites. That means you do not even have to go through a portal on the Rakuten website.
Even if you already have a Rakuten account, they currently have a promo where cashback is doubled or more at popular stores.
Ibotta is a portal that gives cashback with online and in-store purchases. Sign up for Ibotta here. While they work with a lot of websites, the best deals to be had on it are through grocery store purchases.
Right now, they have 100% cashback on Thanksgiving staples. Even if you aren’t in need of these items, it’s a great opportunity to pick up some items to donate to a local pantry.
You can install an extension as you can in Rakuten (part of the sign-up process). But the real benefit is in linking your grocery account with Ibotta. I do Walmart delivery for my groceries, and the deals pop-up in the corner, and I can add them to cart.
For Walmart, you can set it to delivery or pick-up. I use delivery, but the pick-up process is easy. The one time I did it, they put my groceries directly into the trunk.
Sometimes these promotions seem too good to be true, but I’ve received $697.69 through Rakuten by just having the browser installed. Their payouts go directly into my Paypal account.

Please note, I get a referral bonus if you sign up through my Rakuten link. I assume the same is true for Ibotta. This is not an affiliate partnership and is the normal sign-up bonus everyone qualifies for.
