Ebates is a cashback portal that offers you rebates when you shop online. If you don’t already have an Ebates account, you can sign up for one via my link and get an extra $10 cashback after your first eligible purchase (I also earn a referral credit).
For an unspecified period of time, Ebates is offering 12% cashback for Marriott.com hotel bookings (usual cashback: 1.5%). When you book via Ebates, you’re directed to the Marriott official website so you’ll earn your elite status credit and points as per normal.
Booking on Marriott.com gives you access to the whole brand portfolio- Sheraton, Le Meridien, Marriott, JW Marriott, Westin, St Regis, Courtyard, you name. it. There are a few brand exclusions you want to take note of, but otherwise this covers every other Marriott and Starwood property around the globe:
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.
Unlike Shopback, Ebates does not have a Singapore bank transfer option. Instead, you can opt to receive your payout via a physical cheque, or sent to you via PayPal.
Stack with the AMEX $150 cashback offer for extra savings
A little while ago I wrote about the opportunity to get $150 cashback on a $500 spend at Marriott hotels with AMEX cards. The first 15,000 cards to register via this link will get $150 back when they spend $500 or more at participating Marriott hotels in China, India, Hong Kong, Japan, NZ, Singapore and Thailand.
To enjoy this rebate, you need to make a non-prepaid booking via the Marriott official website by 31 January 2019.
This means there’s the potential to stack this offer with the Ebates one. Assuming you spent $500 on the dot, you’d get:
- $150 cashback from AMEX
- $60 cashback from Ebates
Netting you a grand total of $210, or 42% cashback on your stay!
This upsized 12% cashback won’t last long, so you may want to book ASAP if you have already locked in your plans. The great thing is that you can make refundable bookings now, and cancel them if you don’t need them later (it feels silly that I have to say this but obviously if you cancel your booking you get no cashback).
