Found 24th Oct
Reminds me of Rakuten of old.

  • Flat 15% back in Superpoints sitewide when you shop online via Rakuten. Really strong promo on higher spend e.g. £300 Currys spend via Rakuten and you will get back £45 of points to convert to vouchers such as M&S, Tesco etc Maximum of £100 vouchers from the promo (10,000 points cap). Check the invidual merchant page on Rakuten for any exclusions.

  • If you are a new Rakuten shopping customer you will also get an additional 500 Superpoints (worth £5) for signing up (min spend of £20 within 60 days of signup)

  • Based on the website, states that points should normally be credited within 2-3 weeks from purchase. Once they have been credited you can redeem them for your online shopping voucher which will be in the form of a digital code (should take one working day)

Not 100% sure if this will work on pre-orders - have emailed Rakuten and await a response.

Offer ends 30th October

How consistent are they about paying out?

Be Careful with this .... I contacted Rakuten regarding PSN Credit purchases through Game when the 1000 point promotion was on to get some clarification on what is eligible.
They responded 3 days later (just as the bonus 1000 point offer ended!) and claimed they didn't know what psn credit actually was ! They linked their terms and conditions but also stated that as long as the item purchased qualifies for normal points and you also qualified for the offer in terms of amount spent and within the promotional period then you should be fine.

WTF ? They added another term to their terms and conditions it would seem , either that or their customer service team doesn't know what they are talking about ! Absolutely nothing in the terms and conditions stating that your purchase needs to qualify for normal points to be eligible for the promotion. Simply states 'any purchase' and under the T&Cs it details some specifics that are excluded like GAME rewards , Purchasing using e-gift vouchers or using voucher codes etc.
We will wait and see if my orders get the bonus points or not .....

So this would work with your recent Tesco PS Pro deal?

Will only work on the merchants that are available via Rakuten e.g. Currys, Game, base etc - will clarify in the OP

Reading it it reads like the +15% is only on their existing offers, so for Currys it's for some appliances, you wouldn't get +15% on say a computer or a TV unless anyone knows different?

This new incarnation of Rakuten seems to be more closely aligned to the Quidco and TopCashback method through affiliate schemes.

So very much like Quidco, if the rate were 15%, a £600 purchase could earn £75 worth of points. But am I right in that there is always the possibility that something doesn't track and you end up with nothing back?

Yep similar.

There is always a risk that a transaction doesn't track, the fallback is to submit a manual claim. If you are spending anyway, not much to lose given usual cashback on items such as electronics is circa 2% vs 15% for this offer. Pretty obvious that Rakuten will be funding the offer to help drive a bit of traffic to their site.
