Ebates is running a travel promo of sorts and two hotel options which have increased earnings as a result include the Marriott hotels and InterContinental hotels.
Today Only: Get 10% CashBack at Marriott Hotels and InterContinental Hotels
Link: Ebates (if you are not already signed-up for Ebates, using that link will net you $10 back after you spend $25 and I will get $25 – thanks!)
While neither of these are the highest payouts we have seen, it is always nice to earn some cash back for hotel stays – especially when we continue to earn regular points with our stays and points with the cards we use! With several winter hotel promos going on, this could be a good time to plan a strategy for maximizing your points and savings.
Earn 10% Back with Marriott Hotels
Link: Marriott Payout Promo
Here are the details for the Marriott cash back promo:
- Cash Back is available only on completed hotel stay.
- Cash Back is not available on airfare, car rentals, vacation packages, gift cards, rooms offered at specially negotiated rates, where the customer is required to be affiliated with or employed by a particular company or organization to receive the special rate (e.g., government rate or the Marriott employee rate) and rooms that are booked and paid for using Marriott Rewards Points.
- Cash Back is not available at the following brands:
- Ritz-Carlton Destination Club
- Design Hotels
- W Hotels
- and at the following 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.
If you can live with those excluded properties, then by all means make your reservations! Just be aware of this – you cannot use a special rate that is associated with a company or organization. If you have such a rate, check the prices against what you would pay with this deal and balance the 10% against what you would otherwise save.
Earn 10% Back with InterContinental Hotels
Link: IHG CashBack Promo
Unlike Marriott, the whole IHG family is not in on this one. Instead, it is specifically for hotels in the InterContinental brand of hotels. This is not a terrible thing since many of the nicer, more expensive hotels are InterContinental hotels.
- 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.
- Special Terms: Changes made to the reservation at the hotel will void Cash Back.
