About US

What is Influenster CashBack?

Influenster CashBack is part of our ever-growing rewards program where you can earn cash payments as you shop at over 2,500 of your favorite stores. Becoming a member is FREE! Here's the bottom line, when you spend money, you make money.

How does Influenster CashBack work?

Our program is powered by Rakuten, so when you sign up, you simultaneously create an account with Rakuten. What does this mean for you? Well, after you sign up, you can continue to research and read reviews of your favorite products on Influenster.com and when you are ready to make a purchase, you can click the “Shop Now” button to get redirected to the store to make the purchase. Rakuten will track your transaction and will credit your Rakuten account.

But how do I get paid to shop?

Rakuten gets a commission from stores when you make a purchase, and instead of keeping it, Rakuten shares it with you. Find the store on influenster.com, click “Shop Now” and shop like normal on the store site. After you make an eligible purchase, you’ll earn CashBack and get a check or PayPal payment every quarter.

What is Rakuten?

Rakuten is a pioneer in CashBack shopping and one of the largest free-membership loyalty programs in the U.S. Since their founding in 1999, they have helped their members—12 million and counting—earn over $1.3 billion in CashBack at their favorite stores.

Other FAQs

Why am I receiving Influenster emails and Rakuten emails?

Our Influenster CashBack program is powered by Rakuten, so when you sign up for Influenster CashBack, you simultaneously create an account with Rakuten with the same email you supplied Influenster. Rakuten will track your transactions and get you your money, so they want to send informative emails once you sign up.

How do I get my cash back?

If you want to see your balance or receive the money you have earned, simply log into your Rakuten account with the same email you supplied Influenster CashBack. There you can manage your account and request your payout. You can either receive a check in the mail or get it directly sent to your PayPal account. It's that easy.

I live outside of the U.S., can I use Influenster CashBack?

As of right now, Influenster CashBack is only available in the U.S.

What if I already have an Rakuten account?

Fantastic! Then you already know all the benefits of shopping with CashBack. When you are signing up with Influenster CashBack, you can simply use your pre-existing Rakuten email to activate Influenster CashBack.

My Rakuten Chrome extension is showing me a different CashBack percentage than what Influenster CashBack is saying. Which percentage am I getting?

We know this is confusing, but don’t worry. If you are shopping through Influenster CashBack, you will be credited the CashBack percentage that is displayed on the Influenster site. It will override the Chrome extension.

Can I use these CashBack offers IN STORE?

Unfortunately, these offers can only be taken advantage of online.
