InterContinental Hotels Group (InterContinental, Crowne Plaza, Indigo, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Staybridge Suites & Candlewood Suites) tends to have the highest cashback rates of all the hotel chains. I recently wrote about getting cashback for your hotels stays and you can access the article here.
Now, they have even higher cashback rate that appears to be valid until November 30, 2012, although there is no guaranteed that it wouldn’t end up earlier. You don’t have to have your stays by that date, but rather make your reservations.
Getting cashback doesn’t affect the eligibility of the stay for Priority Club points and stay credits. Rates that are eligible are still even when you make the booking through a link from one of these web sites. They only take you to the InterContinental Hotels Group branded website to make the reservation. Make sure that you have also signed up for all the current Priority Club point promotions. I have listed them all here and here.
You can make InterContinental reservation on Holiday Inn branded site and vice versa, and still be eligible for the cashback bonus. I have done it several times as the InterContinental-branded booking site is horrendous.
Here are the cashback percentage rates for some of the sites at the present (Friday 2, 2012). The ShopAtHome site indicates that this offer would be valid until November 30, 2012.
ShopAtHome seems to have the highest payout ratio at the moment. Thing to note is that you need a minimum of $20 for them to send you a CHECK. Yes. Not possible to withdraw using PayPal. Only works for those with US address and bank account
I have an Upromise account and used to use it a lot. You can actually get a check out of them, but you may have to request it by sending a letter. My withdrawal was about $2K few years ago (all from shopping bonuses) and I had to get my bank to verify my signature. This is only available for US addresses.
They have a both UK and US sites. They pay out using PayPal so you can use them regardless where you are located.
I have used Mr.Rebates a lot lately. They dispose the cashback by PayPal.
Ebates is rarely competitive nowadays, but I have used them a lot in the past. They pay by PayPal.
This is another site that I used a lot years ago. Nowadays, their cashback rates are rarely competitive.
They have the highest regular cashback rates and I use them when there are no other offers available. Quidco is based in the UK. Maybe the higher offer is only available through the US sites?
Although ShopAtHome offers the highest cashback rate at the moment, I will most likely continue using either Mr.Rebates or TopCashback. I am not huge fan of high payout requirements and mailing out physical checks.
