With a tagline that reads "Shopping Is Entertainment", you know you're up for a treat the moment Rakuten Online Shopping's website load. ”. Its idea of service is to provide shopping as a form of entertainment in people’s lives. I've personally registered myself to be a member of Rakuten, to take advantage of their on-going 5X Points Rewards and various offers not to be missed. Registration and signing up is FREE, so why not right?

So how does Rakuten make themselves to be the largest and most awesome shopping site in Malaysia? It does that in several ways – by ensuring that the shopping site has many merchants providing an exciting range of quality products; through its reward programme, Rakuten Super Point, which allows customers to shop more, for less (100 Super Points are worth RM1, which can be spent on products across the website during the next purchase); and by creating enjoyable shopping-related events such as the hallmark Rakuten Super Sale – a big discount festive event. 

Let's get on to my super cool #RakutenShoppingHacks shall we?
