    Is it only valid for booking for Holiday Inn stays or all Priorityclub hotels? Intercontinental, Crowne Plaza, etc?

    Based on my read of the T&C for the affiliate program between ebates and the booking site I'd guess most brands qualify.

    All ICH hotel brands, as far as I can tell.
    I've gotten the 4.5% on all brands and last year when they had the 13% special, It worked on at least three of the brands I stayed at.

    Thanks DJP 707, I booked the week-end certificate night and am not sure it worked, because I did not receive an e-mail from E bate.
    I also booked reward nights, it seems to me they do not qualify for E bate.
    I booked in my husband's name, does it work too?
    Thanks a lot for your responses, regards.

    I just got back from using my BOGO Ambassador night, and the room I booked was for a total $600, but I paid $300. My Ebate just posted for the total amount.
    06/17/2012 InterContinental Hotels and Resorts XXXXXXX_ZZZZ_MRAP $664.02 $29.88

    I would say it's worth it to try and see if it posts.

    Also booking under another persons name is usually not a problem. I book rooms and Car rentals for my staff all the time and most of them post correctly. As long as you are logged in and make the reservation thru the Ebates link, and keep a copy of you confirmation # and date you made the reservation. Ebates tracks things by the date you click thru for the reservation not the day you actually stay. So it's important to keep track and follow up if things don't post. I've found Ebates Customer service email to be very quick to respond (<48hrs) and usually correct things immediately when you point them out..

    DJP 707, sorry to disturb you again...I do not find the way to get "Ambassador Certificate" in "Rate Preference".
    I succeeded for "Friends & Family rate" but not for the week-end night certificate. I just get all other rates : best available, senior discount, US government, etc.... do you have a solution for me? thanks again !
    I suppose that we still receive our PC points and bonus points when booking thru E Bate, right?

    Go to ebates and click thru to ICH hotels. once there you can click the Amb weekend link http://www.ichotelsgroup.com/intercontinental/en/gb/ambassador/ambweekend?ratePreferences=IBAMB
    or paste the link into your open window address bar.

    http://www.ichotelsgroup.com/intercontinental/en/gb/ambassador/ambweekend?ratePreferences=IBAMB

    and make sure you drill down the search options and make sure the Ebates IATA number is present in the box.
    make your reservation and you should get your E bate.

    Yes all stay credit and points including bonus and promo's always post when using ebates.

    Sorry hundred times ! what do you mean with this : "make sure you drill down the search options"
    This is the point : all rates come in the box except the "Ambassador certificate"
    Apparently, it is impossible for me to do it for my interested hotel, asked two different persons and both were not able to do it for the Ambassador certificate. It is a pity !!!!
