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.

This is one of those deals that appears for 24 hours, disappears, and then reappears again a few days or weeks later. To ensure that I can get the information out in a timely manner I’m going to write a standard blog post (this one) to cover all the information you’ll need and then 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 has been getting quite a bit of attention recently with its partnership with Amex’s Membership Rewards and now it’s back with a very good cashback offer for bookings at various IHG brands (InterContinental, Crowne Plaza etc..).
Ebates IHG 10% 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:
Brands which are part of IHG but do not appear in the list above include the following:
Interestingly, these 4 brands are not specifically excluded from the cash back offer in any of the terms and conditions I’ve seen so, technically, it’s possible that a Kimpton booking (for example) will qualify for cash back if you click through the IHG link rather than a link for one of the specific brands – Kimpton is part of IHG so why shouldn’t it qualify if it’s not excluded in the T&Cs?
Clicking through the Ebates portal won’t have any effect on the elite benefits you receive, the elite night credit you earn or the IHG Rewards Points you can earn so this is genuinely a very good offer indeed.
Ebates has a countdown showing how long this promotion will last and it looks like it is set to end at 23:59 PST today (21 March 2019).
