    Looks like cash back is now active with Ebates. This morning it's showing 4.5% cash back at all IHG brand hotels.

    4.5% is pretty decent.

    Seems like Ebates is always having double cash back days. A couple years ago I had a long stay and got double cash back 9% which was awesome.
    But since the cash back has been zero for the last 9 months or more 4.5% is a welcome change.

    I have a question. If you book through Ebates, you get the IHG points anyway?

    Yes because Ebates is only referring you to the IHG site and then your booking directly, and you even can sign into you account etc....

    Only about half my stays booked through Upromise posted. And contacting them for credit is next to impossible.
    I'm glad Ebates is back on.

    All of my stays through Upromise post, as that's the only mall I use for IHG stays. And if you book awards through Upromise, you also get a little bonus ;)

    Just FYI Mr Rebates is 6% right now. I've been booking through them -- been using them over a year -- no problems getting my refunds there.

    i'm confused by your post. obviously an award stay is $0, so how do you get a wink worthy 'little bonus' on 5% of nothing? (insert confused emoticon here)

    Ebates pays for awards stays too.
    Not much because the hotel usually only gets $30-$50 for an award stay. so 4.5% of $50 is only a couple bucks.
    you should always book all stays thru a cash back site.

    6% of "$30", "$50", etc. (depending upon hotel category) is more than nothing ;)

    Not sure why Ebates is now showing only 8% as being double cash back. must be the new math 4.5% x 2 = 8%

    I see Ebates has updated the terms and conditions of cash back for IHG hotels.
    you used to get cash back on all rates even points stay's, but it looks like they changed that.

    Special Conditions for Holiday Inn
    Exclusions: Cash Back is only available for commissionable IHG rates. Specialty negotiated rates such as IHG friends & Family "are not eligible" for Cash Back. Rooms booked and "paid for by IHG reward Club Points are not eligible" for cash back incentives.

    Special Terms: Cash Back for travel may not appear in your Ebates account until up to 40 days after travel has been completed.
