Rakuten Loophole

SOOOO
I think I found a loophole.

I ordered this through Lenovo Canada back in October for the $169 pricing.

I used the Rakuten extension in Chrome.

Today I was reviewing my Rakuten.ca transactions and it doesn't appear to have shown a shopping trip nor credit.
My Rakuten.com account shows a $169 purchase pending a $16.90 payment coming February.

SOOOO I think I got extra returns by getting my Rakuten savings in USD?!?

No. They just messed up. They do it all the time. I paid in USD recently and they gave me cash back like it was CAD. Once they randomly paid me like it was a USD transaction when it wasn't...which was nice.

It depends whether the Rakuten is .com or .ca.

A tip I found from a beauty forum was to use .com for Sephora purchases! Sephora.com will switch you to the .ca version but you still get .com cashback in USD! >=D Works well with Sephora but not for Amazon or Walmart. Anyone other sites that works for this.
