Ebates has been getting quite a bit of attention recently with its partnership with Amex’s Membership Rewards and with its recent good discount on Marriott bookings. Now it’s back with a very good cashback offer for bookings at various IHG brands (InterContinental, Crowne Plaza etc..).
Ebates IHG 12% Cash Back Terms
- Cash Back will be added to your Ebates account within six weeks after travel has been completed.
- Cash Back is only available for commissionable IHG rates. Specially negotiated rates such as IHG friends & Family are not eligible for Cash Back.
- Rooms booked and paid for by IHG reward Club Points are not eligible for cash back incentives.
- Changes made to the reservation at the hotel will void Cash Back.
Not all brands appear to be participating but here are the ones which are specifically mentioned as participating in this promotion:
- InterContinental Hotels & Resorts
- Hotel Indigo
- Holliday Inn
- Holiday Inn Express
- Crowne Plaza
- Candlewood Suites
- Staybridge Suites
- EVEN hotels
Brands which don’t seem to be participating include:
I cannot see any country exemptions in the terms and conditions I’ve seen (the last Marriott cash back offer worked for non-us properties) so all bookings at the participating brands should work.
Clicking through the Ebates portal won’t have any effect on the elite benefits you receive or the IHG Rewards Points you can earn so this is genuinely a very good offer indeed.
We don’t know how long this offer will last (i may disappear after today) so don’t take too long deciding if you’d like to participate.
Just earlier I wrote about how I plan to use points to save cash on a trip I’m unexpectedly going to be taking but, with this 12% cashback now on offer, I may rework the math to see if a cash rate isn’t a more sensible option to take.
