- Shopping portal Rakuten/eBates is offering 90% cash back on LifeLock purchases
Rakuten cashback can be converted into American Express Membership Rewards points. LifeLock Ultimate Plus Plan is the most expensive plan, this will cost $296.90 and you’d earn $267.21 or 26,721 MR rewards points. This works out to be 1.11¢ per point. This turns it into a profitable deal if you cash out via the Charles Schwab Platinum (1.25¢ per point). New Rakuten members can get another 3,000 points for signing up as well.
Personally this is an easy pass for me, too much room for something to go wrong and I don’t really want to have to deal with that for a very slight profit. Others (especially people that value MR points highly) will find this worth doing.
