Capital One Shopping is paying new users $40 when they sign up using a referral link and spend $10. This is a solid offer, which currently beats Rakuten – but not as high as the previous offer of $200 (now expired).
What is Capital One Shopping?
Capital One Shopping is a shopping portal that offers rewards when you shop with a merchant listed on their platform. Rewards are offered as cash-back in the form of e-gift cards (not actual cash like Rakuten and others) to a variety of popular merchants including Lowe’s, Home Depot, Macy’s, Staples, Ulta, and Kohl’s.
Capital One $40 Referral Offer Fine Print
- Earn a $40 sign-up bonus when you sign up after clicking an eligible referral link
- Must install the Capital One Shopping browser extension and keep it installed for 30 days
- Must make a $10+ purchase within 30 days of signing up
- Your $40 bonus will be automatically added to your account within 30 days of completing the above requirements.
This is honestly a great offer! I highly recommend signing up for Capital One Shopping if you haven’t already. It is better than the previous Rakuten sign-up bonus we saw a few weeks ago but the only downside is that Capital One Shopping only offers gift card redemptions (not real cash or Amex Membership Rewards points like Rakuten offers). While I usually use Rakuten because I like the ability to get Amex MR points, I consider using other portals like Capital One Shopping and AAdvantage eShopping when elevated cash back is offered.
