You won't get your cash-back
On numerous online-shopping ocasions I have seen the Rakuten extension pop up and claim that I can get a certain % cash back by clicking on the activate button. So I did. But I waited and waited past the due date and the cash back never came. It's very difficult to contact customer support other than robots who don't understand how conversations go. Some times the transaction will even completely disappear from my account history. I have started to take screen shots of the Rakuten x% cash back activated tab as proof that they promised me cash back and are not holding their end of the bargain. Their robots just assume it's my browser's fault but my browser is working just fine. In my experience, you'll have to literally fight like a lawyer for every online purchase you make using their extension. Claiming to customers that they will get 5% back by a certain due date and then not delivering on that claim, is a broken promise and a lie. It's either that or it's simply disorganized

If it walks like Adware, and it talks like Malware ...
This app is shady and deceptive. They hint at providing users with benefits they never fully explain and make a lot of vague claims about "earning cash back" without providing enough detail for anyone to follow up or hold them to account for their deceptive marketing practices.
From reading some of the older reviews, it sounds as if this extension may have delivered on it's marketing claims at some point (e.g. earning rebates and cash back while shopping online in exchange for allowing the software to scrutinize your shopping habits), the general consensus is that it no longer does much of anything and on the rare occasions when it does direct users to fill out a survey, a convenient glitch prevents you from completing the process for getting payment, although not until after you finish completing the survey and providing them with data.
Apple should do a better job of monitoring apps and protecting their users from this type of grey-market deviousware nonsense.

RAKUTEN EVEN LETS ME KNOW SITES I DON'T BOTHER TO CHECK ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THEM
I Do a lot of my Christmas shopping online because most of my family lives in other states. When I have logged into a random website and started to order Rakuten popped up to let me know I could get cash back. I have used Rakutan since before when it was Ebates. It runs much better now and I have not missed out on a single cash back award. I look into my account a few days after my purchases and there is the amount of my award I will get . I always got my award when it was ebates so I don't doubt I will get it now.
