Last week, I wrote about the Mypoints online shopping mall that you can use to get some cashback in the forms of gift cards or United Miles for your InterContinental Hotels Group stay. You can access that piece here.
Two LoyaltyLobby readers contacted me about two different online shopping malls that you can still use to get cashback in a form of a check and American Airlines AAdvantage miles.
Upromise 6% Cashback (Only for US Residents)
You can earn 6% cashback by clicking to one of the IHG brands from Upromise. Note that Upromise doesn’t pay out using PayPal, but you rather have to request them to mail you a check. You can access Upromise’s website here.
If you are staying a lot at the IHG properties, they seem to have a good deal for another 5% cashback for paying using Upromise affiliated credit card. Could be worth considering.
I have used Upromise a lot in the past, when they had a tie up with one US retailer that earned cashback by just registering the card with the Upromise. I managed to earn close to $3K before the partnership ended.
American Airlines AAdvantage Eshopping Mall
You can get three American Airlines miles per dollar for IHG bookings. This is roughly 5% cashback, if we value American miles conservatively at 1.6 cents each. You can access AA’s online shopping portal here.
Note that it doesn’t matter, what IHG branded website you use to make the booking. You can click through to Crowne Plaza and book InterContinental there.
The Upromise cashback offer is good for those that reside in the United States and won’t mind the hassle of cashing checks. The AAdvantage Eshopping mall is open for all members, regardless where they live.
