Good Deal: Get 10% Cash Back On Marriott Bookings


Some links to products and travel providers on this website will earn Traveling For Miles a commission which helps contribute to the running of the site – I’m very grateful to anyone who uses these links but their use is entirely optional. The compensation does not impact how and where products appear on this site and does not impact reviews that are published. For more details please see the advertising disclosure found at the bottom of every page.


This deal comes and goes more often than an oceanic tide so I propose to write a standard blog post (this one) and republish it every time the promotion reappears – if you think you’ve seen some of the information below before you’re not imagining things.

Ebates is currently offering 10% cash back on Marriott bookings when you use the portal to click through to the Marriott website and, because you’ll be booking your stay through one of Marriott’s sales channels, your stay will still earn you Bonvoy points and elite night credits and you’ll still be able to avail yourself of any status benefits due to you.

Also, it’s worth noting that this will stack with the Marriott Amex offer I wrote about yesterday so your overall savings may be even better than the 10% offered by Ebates.

Before you dive in, be aware that it doesn’t look like all Marriott brands are participating.

You may notice that the exclusions appear to differ depending on which of the 10% cash back links you select…..for example:

Here are the exclusions for the JW Marriott cash back link:

  • ExecuStay
  • Ritz Carlton
  • Edition
  • BVLGARI
  • Grand Residences

Excluded properties:

  • The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas
  • Riyadh Marriott
  • Aspen Wye River Conference Center (Maryland)
  • The Marriott Ranch Bed and Breakfast (Virginia)
  • AC Hotel Lisboa
  • AC Hotel Carlton Madrid
  • AC Hotel Som
  • AC Hotel Nuevo Portil Golf.
JW Marriott Singapore South Beach
The Executive Lounge at the JW Marriott Singapore

And here are the exclusions for the Marriott Bonvoy link:

  • Ritz-Carlton Destination Club
  • Design Hotels
  • Bulgari
  • W Hotels

Excluded properties:

  • Atlantis, Autograph Collection
  • Bulgari Hotel, London
  • Joshua G.E. Medical Corp. Conference Center
  • Jesse Jones Rotary Conference Center, Marriott Ranch
  • Protea Hotel Amani Beach
  • Protea Hotel Mbweni Ruins
  • The Ritz-Carlton London
  • U.S. Postal Service Conference Center
  • Four Points by Sheraton Havana
  • The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, Autograph Collection.

Unfortunately this doesn’t mean that you can get around the restrictions by being careful which link you use – it turns out that brand-specific links will only allow you to view properties and make bookings at those specific brands (thanks to Bernard for pointing this out in the comments).

Ebates is not currently showing how long this promotion will last so it’s best to assume this is a 1-day only deal. if it lasts longer that’s just a bonus.

  1. Ziggy, there’s no way to book a W through the individual hotel branded links. I tried searching a hotel via the JW link, but it automatically redirects me back to the Bonvoy page, and when I click on the chrome extension tab for ebates, it changes the activation to bonvoy ebates. So I believe there are no loop holes around booking a W via the JW ebates link.

    • Thanks for checking that out – I’ll update the post to reflect this when I’m next in the same room as my laptop.
