15% Cash Back at all Intercontinental brands (Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, etc.)

Valid through May 16th

The cash back portal, eBates, is offering 15% cash back this week at over 250 stores.  Intercontinental Hotel brands are included: Candlewood Suites, Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, Hotel Indigo, Intercontinental, StayBridge Suites, etc.

eBates Holiday Inn 15%

This is the highest cash back rate I’ve seen for any hotel brand. 

When booking hotels through a portal, click through from the portal and book the hotel for any future date (your stay does not have to happen during the portal promotion). Typically your cash back will not become commissionable until after your stay (except sometimes with prepaid rates).

  1. Hi does booking thru ebates count towards elite nights and do we earn points or is it regarded as a third party booking similar to booking.com

    • When you click through eBates (or any portal) to Holiday Inn (or to the other brands), the result is exactly the same as if you browsed directly to the hotel (except that you get cash back too). So, yes, you earn elite nights and points.

      • WOW Thank you I am new to this and not an american so it’s very helpful as it means it’s another way that I can get something back . I have been buying from ebay without using a portal so I have been missing out on cash backs.

      • are you 100% sure?!? like 1 1/2 years ago- the first ‘into the nights’ type promotion, i booked thru a portal. did not count for status or the promo. when i called platinum CS, they could see i booked thru a portal and told me it that made it a non-qualified stay. it’s the only battle i’ve ever lost with ihg CS.

      • How about a situation with one extra step: Ebates to Travelocity – then making a reservation at Hilton to be paid directly to the hotel upon checkout. Will that preserve my getting HH points and elite benefits?

        • eBates is only offering 15% at Travelocity for cruises. For hotels, the rate is only 4%. Regardless, the answer is no. When you book with an OTA like Travelocity, you generally won’t earn hotel points or credits. Often you will receive elite benefits though, if you tie your hotel account number to the reservation (you may have to call the hotel chain to do this)

  2. Do you know if we can use this offer to purchase ihg gift cards? I have trips this summer at I HG properties but I’m using my Citi Prestige card and I need to make reservations through them….But it would be nice to have gift cards to pay for the extras.
