Cash back shopping site Ebates (new members get $5 cash from the site or $10 gift card after first $25+ purchase when signing up through my referral link, feel free to leave yours in the comments) is offering 9% cash back on all Intercontinental Hotels Group bookings.
That means you can earn a 9% rebate on reservations with Holiday Inn, Intercontinental, Crowne Plaza, and related brands when you go to the IHG website by clicking on it through the Ebates portal.
Even bigger rebates were available a year ago, but then IHG disappeared as a cash back option. It returned about a month ago at 4.5%. It’s great to see this (likely limited-time) doubling.
Currently Marriotts are available through the site with a 2.5% rebate, Hyatt at 2%, Hotels.com at 3.25%, Starwood at 1.5%, and Radisson at 3.5%.
Cash rebate portal TopCashBack often has even higher payouts, although mixed reader experiences with customer services. Their hotel rebates include 3% at Hyatt, 4% with Accor, 5% with Best Western, 5% with Radisson. They don’t currently have Starwood or Intercontinental Hotels.
Update: Now down to 8%.
