Update 2/21/19: And back again. Thanks to reader Quango. Update 2/6/19: Deal is back, remember Ebates has been rebranded Rakuten now.

The Offer

Direct link to offer for Marriott & IHG

  • Ebates is offering 10% cash back on completed Marriott bookings

 

The Fine Print

  • Unknown end date
  • Cash Back is not available at the following brands: ExecuStay, Ritz Carlton, Edition, BVLGARI, Grand Residences; and at the following properties: The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Autograph Collection, Riyadh Marriott, Saudi Arabia, Aspen Wye River Conference Center (Maryland), The Marriott Ranch Bed and Breakfast (Virginia), AC Hotel Lisboa, AC Hotel Carlton Madrid, AC Hotel Som, AC Hotel Nuevo Portil Golf.

Our Verdict

According to cash back monitor the best historical rate for Marriott is 10%. Normally it seems to sit around 7%. Keep in mind you’re still doing the booking directly through Marriott so you get elite stay credits and points. If you don’t have an Ebates account then consider using my link here.

Doesn’t seem to work if you get sent to SPG to book.

I know it’s excluded in the terms but does anyone have experience with ebates tracking using a government rate?

Yes I have used Ebates with the government rate and got the cash back.

So government or employee discount rates work to get cashback?

I always assumed the use of Corp Codes would cancel the portal cashback. That’s not true?

Not sure if this is an answered question or not, but I booked a stay through Marriott for 2 weeks down the road and the card that I used has not been charged yet, how would Ebates or other shopping portals register this a few weeks down the road if the charge has not been completed yet? do they retroactively give you the discount?

I’m also curious about this. What if you don’t go with APR?

Its only going to pay you when the stay completes. They rely on getting notification from the “store” (Marriott in this case) that the purchase happened.

YMMV- personally I did not had good experience with Ebates.
Multiple times my Hotel and Rental car reservation credit disappeared at the time of payment. Multiple followups had little or no response.
Personally, I would not deal with Ebates at all. I would rather go with TCB or RetailMeNot who in my experience have excellent customer service and received credit payment for every clicks.

Their customer service is good only for new members. My mom signed up & only used Ebates once. Her check showed up a few days back, although it was supposed to arrive after Feb 15. Looks like they want her to buy more via Ebates. I requested my check to be expedited as well, but my request was denied because I’ve been using it a lot recently.

I’ve had lots of issues with my rental car reservations tracking, but their customer service has been really good about crediting me once I send the confirmation email after waiting the 4-6 week period.

I hope ebates tracks reservations made 6+ months out. Guess I’ll find out sometime in June 2019 (after the stay completes).

Received an email confirmation w/ the expected rebate amount, once the stay completes. That’s a positive sign.

Thanks! I have a work trip coming up and was able to rebook it.

Goes well with the Amex offers

So Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York, if I book would earn 12% via Ebates right? And if I book 4-5 Rooms under same reservation In single booking, 12% cashback would be earned on entire amount paid for Marriott stay for these rooms?

Darn, just booked a room yesterday using a prepaid rate so it would trigger the Amex offer before I have my stay in Feb. Oh well, can’t win them all.

It is not booking directly through marriot – it looks like through ebates. So how are you still going to get rewards?
