Thought this offer was decent if you are planning to spend £40+ anyway with retailers such as Simply Games, Zoom, Game, Base, etc

Effectively you are getting a 25% return on £40 spend if you are an existing Rakuten shopping customer or 37.5% return on spend if you are a new Rakuten shopping customer, in the form of an online shopping voucher which you can use for retailers such as M&S, Currys, Tesco.


So the deal is as follows:

  • Get 1000 Superpoints (worth £10) when you spend £40+ at retailers Simply Games, Zoom, Game, Base, HMV, Music Magpie, Zavvi, Wordery via the Rakuten shopping portal. Reviewing the terms the maximum points earn is 10,000 points e.g. 10 transactions of £40+

  • 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)

  • Plus you will earn base points for shopping with the selected retailer

  • 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)


So, as an example if you wanted to buy PS4 Gran Turismo Sport Limited Edition - £44.85 @ Simply Games you could earn enough points for a £10-£15 voucher

Ah, I might try and make time to read all the small print this time!

I wonder if this would work with a pre order or if it would class the transaction as being outside the qualifying period due to no funds being taken until dispatch. Anyone know?

How long does it take to credit your account with points after a purchase?

Would also like to know this ... ps4 ww2 at base is £45 so effectively £35 after voucher which I believe is the best around right now.

Also , Does anyone know if this includes PSN Wallet topups through Rakuten-Game ?

I would guess that it wouldnt work on a pre order if no funds are being taken until after the offer period (although would need to test to validate )as the merchant would have no sale transaction to report back to Rakuten.

So you don't know either .... thanks for your help , lol ..... trial and error it would seem unless anyone has had confirmation from Rakuten themselves which would spread any light on this.



The PSN Credit looks like an amazing way of getting cheap credit if that works , reading through T&Cs I cannot see anything to suggest it would not.

The website states usually 2-3 weeks.

Would suggest to put a diary reminder to follow up after that period. In case of any issues. the email address is contact@rakuten.co.uk and you would need to include the retailer name, order number and the full purchase price.

*any purchases above £40 , anyone know what the cheapest thing to buy is on Game ?

I've emailed Rakuten to ask the question regarding PSN Credit and also Pre-Orders for games released after the extra 1000 bonus points promotion ends.

Will report back on here once I've had a response



Update : 22/10/17 1.44pm Still no reply from Rakuten either by email or facebook message. As the offer ends at 9am tomorrow it is now unlikely to be confirmed officially.
However , NONE of their terms in relation to this offer exclude the purchase of Sony Psn Wallet Top-Ups so you should be fine.

Still no reply from Rakuten on this .....

Have you seen this:

docs.google.com/spr…dit

Clicked the link to simply games from Rakuten and this came up

Gave up waiting , have gone for £45 psn credit , there is absolutely no mention whatsoever in any of the Terms and conditions that state these are excluded from the promotion. I've taken a screenshot of all of them prior to purchase just on case !

Did anyone get the 1000 point bonus
