Is it just me, or can you not even say the word Rakuten without thinking of the commercial the brand released covering Elton John’s iconic song “Rocket Man” and changing the lyrics to “Rakuten”? It not only immediately got stuck in my head the second I saw and heard the commercial, but it provided a foolproof way to never mispronounce the brand’s name ever again. Clever marketing actually works, my friends, and if you’re a Rakuten fan or just want to get started shopping through a Rakuten account, pay attention because the Rakuten Black Friday 2021 deals going on now will have you saving even more for shopping at your favorite stores.

If you’re unfamiliar, Rakuten is the online shopping tool that rewards you for shopping at the places you were already going to shop at anyway. All you have to do is visit to sign up for an account and get started. Then, add the Rakuten extension to your browser. Once you’ve added the extension, it’ll automatically scan for deals, discounts, and cheaper prices as you shop your favorite retailers online. The more you shop and spend, the more your cashback balance will grow until you have enough for a check. You can cash out with a physical check or send cash directly to your PayPal account. So yeah, shopping Black Friday through Rakuten means you’ll get even more cash back during the holiday.
