One of the greatest places to buy new Pixels is the Google Store, and shortly before the Pixel 6a and Pixel Buds Pro went on pre-order, Rakuten began giving cash back on Google Store purchases.
The Rakuten Cash Back Button is a browser extension and provides cash back and coupons from different online retailers. These days, you can get that cash back through the Google Store.
Although we’re not certain exactly when it was added, Rakuten and the Google Store both seem to have made cash back available recently. Customers who have signed up for the service on the page and redeem 2% cash back on any purchase can activate Rakuten. The Rakuten extension displays a pop-up to inform users of the available cash back, as shown in the screenshot below.
Actually, that is all that is required. Rakuten will process the 2% when your order ships and pay it to you as soon as you reach the payment threshold.
However, Google has long provided Google One users with cash back on Store purchases before Rakuten entered the market. In essence, you can earn a few bucks back on your hardware purchases if you pay for storage on your Google account. The cheapest plans give 3% back on purchases, whereas plans with 2TB or more give 10%.
With Google’s cash back offer, customers receive a shop credit that may be applied to subsequent purchases from the Google Store. Rakuten, in contrast, provides PayPal with actual cash payouts. Additionally, it looks that these offers can be piled on top of one another, at least based on our limited testing.
