Shopping is Entertainment!

    I am obsessed with cookware and kitchen gadgets and it is actually very fun to hunt for them online.

    We have heard a lot about Rakuten Online Shopping from our friends and families. The process of online shopping in Rakuten is very therapeutic and entertaining as it carries over 210,000 goods from over 900 merchants with a diverse mix of product categories, including fashion apparel and accessories, health and beauty products, consumer electronics, toys and games and home furniture. The sky is the limit literally.

    On top of that, Rakuten Online Shopping always has attractive discounts and points reward system, which give consumers more savings. For example, my dream KITCHENAID stand mixer is only selling for RM 2899 compared to RM 3199 that we always see elsewhere. This means that I get a combination of cheaper price + earning 145 points (can use for shopping later) + 5% discount if I use it on Wednesday. *gasped*

    Every Wednesday, Mastercard holders are able to enjoy additional 5% discount!

    It is very easy to start shopping and start saving in Rakuten!

    First of all, be a member to enjoy Rakuten Super Points and accumulate to use as another payment method to purchase desired category/products.

    Then, start shopping to earn 5X Rakuten Super Points. That’s equivalent to 5% equivalent of your purchase value back in Rakuten Super Points – it can be used like cash to offset your next purchase

    Every Weekend, Rakuten gives out different sets of coupons for even greater savings. Remember to check out Rakuten’s site regularly.

    Another way to save more is to keep your eyes open on new store openings! Wow this whole Rakuten shopping thing is so fun! It feels like treasure hunt, and the end result is often rewarding.

    For example, my mum’s favourite skin care brand Himalaya is offering a RM 25 coupon for every purchase of RM 100. That’s like an upright 25% discount!

    I had fun adding the products into my shopping cart and applying the discount code. Guess how much is my total bill? Only RM 83 for 2 cleansers, 3 moisturising cream and 1 lip balm, plus delivery. We also earn extra 10 x points, so that’s like 10% discount but on points form.

    I lost count on the amount of discounts that we are getting. First there’s buy 1 free 1, then there’s buy 2 free 1, then a RM 25 discount plus a 10 points reward.

    All these for RM 83? And I earned 10 points, equals to RM 10 in value!

    Shop now at to believe this!
