I just hate Rakuten. Almost every item they have listed overpriced above market msrp or they are just selling non-US version with seller warranty. Most sellers even are not bothered mentioning complete product specifications and warranty info!!! Recently, I was planning to buy Fitbit Charge 3 (for using my $100 reward points ) that was available for $129 instead of its msrp $149 I guess. But I tried to ask seller if they can offer additional discount but they inflated price to $149!!! Still, I thought to proceed but when I came to know that these are non-US models with 30 days seller warranty, I dropped the plan. I am not saying all sellers are doing this, they have reputed ones also. So take your stand with reputable sellers only. Don't compromise on warranty part even you are getting something free because of points. Because points are also not free technically.
If going for no warranty then try to buy something that has less chances of issues like non-electronic devices, may be office chair, shoes, clothing that you are already sure for size. Dont take chance with return.
