It’s the most wonderful (shopping) day of the year! That’s right: Black Friday is upon us, and while things might look a little different this year (goodbye, lineups, hello, shopping in our PJs!), it’s still the best time to save big. And whether you’re trying to get a head start on your holiday gift list or just looking to score a hot deal on a big-ticket item, starting your virtual shopping spree on Rakuten.ca is our favourite way to stretch our dollar! Not only will you earn cash back on every purchase (up to 12% on Black Friday), but you’ll also get access to great deals and coupons from more than 750 retailers.
Here’s how it works: Simply, begin your online shopping at Rakuten.ca, click through to one of the partner retail sites, and then complete your purchase on that retailer’s site. Rakuten.ca then tracks your purchase, and you get a percentage of everything you bought back in cash!
So, what to buy, you ask? Here are our fave steals for Black Friday:
LENOVA YOGA C740 (15”) LAPTOP,
$1,160 $810 + 12% cash back

The Lenovo Yoga C740 Laptop works as both a computer and a tablet, making it easy to switch between Zoom meetings and Netflix breaks. Plus, there’s a webcam shutter and fingerprint reader for extra security.
