Rakuten cash back on gift cards

Thought I’d start an official Rakuten cash back thread, although I’ve personally had more luck with Paypal.

Yesterday I got some Southwest gift cards through Sams Club (they were $20 off the $449 price for a $500 gc). I linked through Rakuten with low hopes. It was just a 1% Cashback anyway, but says “excludes gift cards”. Today there shows up in Rakuten 1% in my cash back summary.

So keep your eyes peeled for Sams club Disney card discounts (next month the Discover card will give a 5% Cashback for warehouses, so I’ll test this out in April and report back…).
