There are lots of ways to express gratitude in Portuguese. If you're male, use the 'o' ending. Females use the 'a' ending.I borrowed this list from this site:
  • obrigado/a - thank you, informal
  • muito obrigado/a - thank you very much
  • obrigadinho/a - kindly thank you, friendly, you should smile when using this form, or be misinterpreted as being ironic/angry: thanks for nothing/thanks, but no thanks
  • muitíssimo obrigado/a - thank you very, very much, I owe you, somewhat formal
  • obrigadíssimo/a - thank you very, very much, I owe you, somewhat formal
  • agradecido/a(s) - thank you, formal
  • muito agradecido/a(s) - thank you very much, formal
  • muitíssimo agradecido/a(s) - thank you very, very much, I owe you, formal
  • agradecidíssimo/a(s) - thank you very, very much, I owe you, formal
  • agradeço-te - thank you deeply, to a friend/coworker/colleague, formal
  • agradeço-lhe - thank you deeply, to a superior/stranger, formal
  • agradeço-vos - thank you deeply, to 2 or more people, formal
  • grato/a(s) - thank you, very formal
  • muito grato/a(s) - thank you very much, very formal
  • muitíssimo grato/a(s) - thank you very, very much, I owe you, very formal
  • gratíssimo/a(s) - thank you very, very much, I owe you, very formal

Thanks Jacob! Keep up the good work!

Mainly you can stick to obrigado/obrigada, as a lot of the other forms are used in a playful term, just like you would play around with the word "thanks", as many people do, like "thankies" and things like that.

The formal versions Jacob mentioned are probably nice to have in a professional context, even though I never needed to use them.

Really important is to remember though, that if you're male, you say obrigado, no matter on the gender of the person you're talking to. And as a female, obrigada, also no matter of the gender you're talking to. This confused me a lot in the beginning, but easy once you know which form is yours :)
