If you’re not making money while you’re Black Friday shopping, then you’re doing it all wrong (and no, that wasn’t a typo). Sale or not — and I say this as someone who finds deals for a living — you should always be using some kind of app or browser extension when you shop so that you can earn cash back and automatically apply coupons so that you save money shopping online. Rakuten is a tool I’ve personally been using for the last five years, and at this point, I’ve made thousands back (I swear this is *not* a sponsored post, I’m just very good at shopping!). And this year, Khloe Kardashian has partnered with the platform to spread the good word.
While you can earn cash back from thousands of retailers by using Rakuten (you just download the browser extension and make sure it’s turned on when you’re shopping — generally you’ll see a pop-up on your right-hand corner that’ll tell you what percentage you can earn), you can also shop Khloe’s hand-picked favorites (more about this in a few seconds).
While I had Khloe, I also *had* to ask her what she’s shopping for her family and friends this year. As we all know, the Kardashians are not known for holding back, so I knew her gift-giving skills would be extra extra. And I was right — Khloe’s list includes luxurious picks as well as something a little unexpected (hint: I think she got some inspiration from the Barbie movie).

GV: Your favorite gift to give your sisters?
KK: I shop all year long to look out for the best gifts and I always love to give something personalized! I also love giving gifts that are for the home or something I know they’ve been wanting but just haven’t purchased for themselves yet.
GV: What are you gifting yourself this year?
KK: Spending time with family is the most important to me. I always feel like that such a special gift for us all to be together during the holidays.
GV: What gifts are we all sleeping on this year?!
KK: Basic, but you can never go wrong with a candle or a blanket. Or if you are looking to splurge, all the girls want the Dyson Airwrap!
GV: Tell us about your partnership with Rakuten!
