Rack It Up.

It’s a simple truth. Once people experience Cash Back with Rakuten, they just can’t help talking about it. This insight drove an awareness campaign that needed to explain what Rakuten is and what they do, but also had to entertain. From the World Series to Super Bowl Sunday and beyond – our Cash Back Enthusiasts (including Stephen Curry) have found a huge audience as they managed to turn everyday conversations into lessons on Racking up Cash Back.
