12% Rebate on Marriott Reservations, Book Quickly

Terms apply to the offers and benefits listed on this page.

Ebates is offering 12% cash back on Marriott.com bookings.

If you aren’t already an Ebates member, join, and we’ll both get credit with your first booking or other purchase through their site — you get $10 credit as long as your purchase is for $25 or more.

Historically the payout was less than 2%, so this is an amazing deal that probably won’t last. It’s worth it to make any Marriott (including Starwood) bookings through the site, and to make as many as you may need quickly. Indeed, making cancellable bookings that you may need can make good sense.

Since you’re sent from Ebates to Marriott’s own website you will of course earn elite credit and have elite status recognized, as well as earning Marriott points for your stay and availing yourself of their member rates.

Terms and conditions:

Cash Back Terms
Cash Back will be added to your Ebates account within six weeks after travel has been completed.

Exclusions: 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: ExecuStay, Ritz Carlton, Edition, BVLGARI, Grand Residences; and at the following properties: The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Autograph Collection, Riyadh Marriott, Saudi Arabia, 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.

  1. Hey Gary, has there ever been a known case for points/nights to not post for a marriott stay from ebates? I did a quick search and it seems like most times points/nights post as expected. I have a stay coming up for 9 nights, that I switched over to a reservation thru your link thru ebates. BUT im short 10 nights from my 75. Id hate to find out after the fact that the 9 nights dont post. I cant find anything int he ToC that says we wont get the night credit. any insights? Thanks

  2. @Bobby, I’ve never had an issue. It’s just a shopping portal, it works the same as if you went to marriott’s website directly.
