How to Delete Rakuten Account

There are two ways to delete your Rakuten account, both of which involves sending a deletion request email. You can either send a mail directly to their member services email address ([email protected]), or you can use the online contact section on the website to request for account deletion.

Rakuten.com is a membership-based website that allows shoppers to collect cash rebates for certain purchases (formerly ebates, now Rakuten Rewards), alternative is Rakuten.ca for users in Canada.

How do I delete Rakuten Cash back account?

Like I said earlier, there are two ways to delete your Rakuten.com account.

You can either send a mail directly to their member services email address, or you can use the online email contact section on the website.

The account deletion procedures I am about to show below is valid forevery Rakuten Ebates or cash back account.

1. Send a direct mail

To delete your Rakuten account, send a mail to [email protected] requesting that your account is deleted and your personal information removed from the database. 

You should send this mail directly from the email address you used to register your Rakuten account with the subject, “Account Deletion Request“.

You can use the template below:

Dear Rakuten Support Team,

I have an account in your database associated with the name ____ and the email address ______

For personal reasons, I have decided not to use the account again and so, I will like to request that you kindly delete my account from your database and delete all (Email notifications, additional email addresses, marketing emails, payment detail, or any other information).

Hope to hear back from you soon. Best regards!

Or you can construct your own mail.

2. Use the contact section

Another way to request for Rakuten account deletion is to use the contact box on the help section of the website.

Here’s how to do that:

  • First, click on Help at the top of the page (you will find it on the top menu)

  • Click on Send Request

Now, all you can do is to wait for a few hours after you send your request.

Once the deletion process has been deleted, you will be notified that your account has been successfully deleted.

To make sure that your account has been deleted as requested, you can try to login to the website to use the service and see if you still have access or not.

Now, here’s one thing you should be aware of:

According to the Rakuten’s Privacy Policy page, “If you request that we delete your personal information, we will do so except to the extent we determine that we need the information for a business purpose and have a legal right to maintain it, in which case we will inform you of that legal exception.”
