    Hi folks,

    I've been trying to research TCB online, and I'm confused so as usual, i've come here for clarity....

    I'm wondering what the users can tell me about the pros and cons of using this site in conjunction with earning hotel points, etc....Can you "double dip", are there certain benefits to using TCB versus just going through the hotel directly, etc.


    Thanks,

    MO

    The way sites like top cash back typically work is that they redirect you to the actual hotel (or merchant) site with a special referral code in the URL that triggers the cash-back to you. You are still booking on the actual hotel site and meet their requirements for earning points and stay/night credit.

    It's wise, before booking, to look at other sites that can advise you of the best cash back or points for your bookings.
    Two of these are http://evreward.com/ and
    http://www.cashbackholic.com/
    I don't know of any one site that is totally comprehensive, so it's good to look around for the best offers.

    So you have to decide if you want the money through a site like TCB, or the points through the UR MALL, etc.....?

    No, the point is that you many choices. For example, another cash back portal may be offering more cash than TCB, etc.

    Very compelling thread title.

    When did TCB get into the Human Trafficking sector?

    You seem to have misunderstood. TCB gives extra cash back to Virgins. :D

    I use topcashback for mostly hotel reservations, I still get the points from the hotel program and the cash back. It takes a long time to post the money but it seems to work great. It's an easy way to make a few hundred dollars a year for a typical business traveler. I have yet to find much downside with TCB.

    Thanks Everybody !!!!!

    Let me clarify through an example:

    I need to book a Holiday Inn.......TCB is offering 10% cash back and UR MALL is offering 5 points a dollar....I need to decide whether I would rather have the points through the URM, or the cashback through TCB, and book accordingly.....

    I had to fight for a few of my Club Carlson rebates, but they eventually did right by me. "Eventually" = about 4 months in this case.
