I have been with Rakuten, formally Ebates since November 18, 2007! Now, I buy mostly car and motorcycle parts, and the online store I use the most is Ebay. Ebay changes categories that pay back money through Rakuten. Even though I don't "shop" a lot outside of Ebay, I have received $794.67 of FREE MONEY from Rakuten when I do shop. Rakuten has daily deals and double cash back at certain times. I never purchase anything online without first going through Rakuten.
In the past Amazon did pay cash back, as did JCPenney, Etsy and other online stores. And you never know when they will come back.
My favorite stores that I shop frequently are:
Right now Rakuten is offering a $20 BONUS for any new members who sign up and then spend $20 on any store that pays back through Rakuten. You have 90 days to make a purchase. Once you do, you will see the bonus added to your account within a few days. You can sign up here- https://www.rakuten.com/r/CGIBBA?eeid=28187

|Chris Gibbany SportBike Chic Kevlar jeans|
I LOVE these jeans, and right now SportBike Chic is having a 20% off sale with free shipping for orders over $75 when you use code WRNHOLIDAY! She now has the Kevlar jeans in black also.
GUYS, this is an AMAZING deal for a pair of Kevlar protective riding jeans. While you're there, also pick up an armored hoodie, a tank purse or both. Be sure and she what all she has to offer. You won't regret it!!!
I did this review earlier this year:
Although I have been riding motorcycles for years, it has only been in the last few years that I have really wanted a pair of Kevlar riding jeans. Two things have kept me from buying a pair; cost and sizing. Not having a brick and mortar store that allowed me to try on a pair kept me from ordering a pair online not knowing if they would fit or not. Now I can tell the world about an awesome pair of Kevlar jeans made by a woman rider to help other women riders be safe and look great while doing it, at a very reasonable price.
SportBike Chic was launched in 2016 by U.S. Marine veteran and motorcycle enthusiast, LaShundra Rucker. I got a pair of the riding jeans and I absolutely LOVE them! I am not easily impressed but I think any woman would love to have a pair of these jeans to ride in, whether you ride a sport bike or a cruiser. The jeans are a mid-rise, traditional five pocket jean design with a skinny fit. The front of the jeans have super deep pockets to keep your items safe while riding. The pants come with a strong YKK zipper and large belt loops. The denim is super soft and boasts a very attractive medium wash.

The SportBike Chic jeans weigh 11.5 ounces that are lined with 100% Kevlar® for added protection and are made of 98% cotton and 2% elastane spandex that allows them to be flexible while riding. The Kevlar® lining begins at the waist and reaches well past the knees on the front of the jeans and covers the back of the thighs with an additional section on the outer calves. The jeans have large cotton pockets inside with Velcro to attach the CE level 1 knee and hip armor that is included with each pair. In my opinion, the stitching on the outside of the jeans where the Kevlar® starts and ends add a very attractive detail to the jeans.
These jeans are not only AMAZING but are priced very affordable at just $123.46! The first day I wore the jeans riding my Panhead, it was 58° and I never got cold. The next time I wore them while riding my Knucklehead it was 90° and I never once got hot. The trip on the Knuckle also included stopping at a chili supper where I spent a considerable amount of time off the bike. Both bikes have a different riding position but the extra lip built into the rear of the jeans kept me from getting drafty in the back while also showing no skin. The sizing is spot on as I am 5"10, weighing 175 pounds, with a size 8 fitting perfect! If you follow the size chart and do your measurements, you can ensure a great fitting pair of jeans. A welcome feature for many women is the fact that these jeans are available in sizes 0 to 20.

I love the fact that the jeans look as good off the bike as they do on. No one thinks I am wearing motorcycle specific jeans when I am sporting these off the bike. I am in love with how they are so comfortable and non-restrictive. All of my bikes have open belt primaries so I wear gaiters to protect my legs. With these having a skinny leg, I have no problem fitting my gaiters over them.
If you are a lady rider looking for protection, style and comfort in a riding jean, look no further. These jeans are budget friendly, well fitting, and attractive. Check out all of SportBike Chic’s products-
