Bonus cashback on travel at Ebates: 4.5% off Marriott, 12% Hilton, 5% Hertz, 10% Thrifty, more
I just stumbled onto “Travel Week” at Ebates and the deals seemed worth sharing. The Marriott 4.5% Ebate is notable to me, as I always want to book directly with Marriott to get full benefits. The Hilton bonus is nice but, like the last time they had a deal like this (15% off last time), you aren’t eligible if you have any status higher than Blue. In general, I like to book direct – so this is just free cash on top. But also notable is that it will stack with all sales and, often but not always, coupon codes as well.
If booking an independent hotel, the deals with Orbitz, Priceline, etc could be a nice double with one of their deals.
Car rental bonuses like 10% cash back from Thrifty and 5% at Hertz are nice as well.
If you are allowed to book work travel on your own card and directly to get reimbursed, this is an easy way to earn a few extra bucks on that. While one could debate if that is ethical or not, I don’t think anyone is rebating Ebates off a submitted hotel charge.
If you don’t yet have an Ebates account, using my referral link gets you $25 and me $10.
