Buy.com launched a Rakuten Super Points program to reward loyal shoppers with points redeemable as payment toward future purchases. All items purchased by credit card via a Buy.com account, with the exception of gift certificates, will earn customers Super Points.

This marks the first time the Rakuten Super Points program will be available outside Asia. Rakuten acquired Buy.com in May for approximately $250 million.

The U.S. Super Points program builds upon Buy.com's recent customer service initiatives, includes a 45-day return policy with no restocking fees and free shipping on millions of products.
