(EXPIRED) Ibotta: Earn 10% Cashback At Choice Hotels + $10 Bonus (Targeted?)

Sorry, this deal is no longer available. Do you want to be alerted about new deals as they’re published? Click here to subscribe to Frequent Miler's Instant Posts by email.

Update 5/22/19: This deal has returned. This time, it expires at 5/27/19 at 2:59am. Note that both Stephen and I see the additional $10 bonus this time around, so maybe that is open to everyone this time? YMMV.

A week after they offered 10% back on IHG bookings with a targeted $10 bonus, Ibotta is offering the same deal except this time it’s for Choice Hotels bookings.

Quick Thoughts

Cashback of 10% from Ibotta is twice the amount offered through most cashback portals. TopCashback has Choice Hotels listed as 10%, but that’s only for their Cambria brand – all other brands are only 5%.

The additional benefit of booking via Ibotta is getting an additional $10 cashback when making a reservation costing $125 or more before taxes and fees. If you were able to book a stay costing exactly $125 before tax, you’d be earning 18% back, an excellent return. Be aware that the $10 bonus is probably targeted; I received the same offer with IHG last week, but Nick didn’t see anything about the $10 bonus, so I suspect it’ll be the same again this week.

Clicking through from Ibotta takes you directly to the Choice website. That means this qualifies as a direct booking, so you’ll earn points, elite night credits, receive status benefits, etc. If you’re planning on making a reservation, make sure you’re registered for their latest promotion where you’ll earn at least 8,000 points after two stays.

[…] Basically the same deals they offered last week for IHG. Booking through a portal like this still counts as booking directly, so you’ll still earn elite night/stay credits and Choice points on your stay. If you’re new to Ibotta, appreciate if you use: […]

[…] America and VRBO, but the email I received from them also listed IHG at 9%. Their recent deals for Choice and IHG had a targeted element, so I suspect the 9% rate for IHG is targeted […]

[…] ran a similar offer last month, although that one offered 10% cashback. 8% cashback is still a decent rate for Choice Hotels […]
