Confusing: TopCashBack- 7% Cash Back At IHG or InterContinental Properties?

I just received an e-mail from TopCashBack about a limited time offer to receive 7% cash back when staying at IHG properties.

If you’re looking to pay for an upcoming stay this can amount to a nice little savings and is definitely worth looking into.

However, when I clicked the link in the e-mail it brought me to an offer for InterContinental Hotels, not all IHG properties!

With the offer, you can earn 7% back for a completed booking made in the next 5 days. (I’m guessing this means that the offer is good until April 12.)

While the e-mail states that we can earn 7% cash back from IHG properties (and in part of the description on TopCashBack), when I clicked the link in the e-mail or type IHG into TopCashBack, a link for InterContinental Hotels came up. This made me wonder if the offer is really for all 4,600 IHG properties or just at InterContinental Hotels?

The information on TopCashBack seems to go back and forth mentioning IHG and InterContinental.

Based on this, I’d assume that the offer was meant to only be for InterContinental Hotels.

Some Rules: (from TopCashBack)

  • Special Terms: Cash back payments are distributed 30-60 days after the completed stay.
  • Exclusions: Cash back is only available for commissionable IHG rates. Specialty negotiated rates such as IHG friends & Family are not eligible for cash back. Rooms booked and paid for by IHG reward Club Points are not eligible for cash back incentives.
  • Please note; cash back will initially track at $0 and will uplift once the booking has been completed and confirmed.
  • Please note that the use of a InterContinental Hotels promotional/coupon code not posted and approved by TopCashback, may affect your eligibility for cashback.
  • InterContinental Hotels Cashback is available through TopCashback on genuine, tracked transactions completed immediately and wholly online.
  • INTERCONTINENTAL HOTELS CASHBACK can be earned simply by clicking ‘Get cashback & visit retailer’ button through to the merchant and shopping online as normal.
  • Please note, only purchases made on InterContinental Hotels’s US site are eligible for cashback.

(If you’re not already a TopCashBack member you can sign up through my referral link. I’ll earn a small commission after you’ve earned $10 back.)

While this offer seems to not really be what was advertised, you can still get other cash back travel deals like:

  • & Orbitz – 7%
  • Accor Hotels- 8%
  • Sofitel & Novotel- 6%
  • Starwood Hotels- 3%
  • and many more…

  1. Mike G- So according to you the Mr Rebates offer of 6% is better than 7% back since they might have 8% once in a while… Makes a lot of sense.

  2. Frequently doesn’t mean everyday. It’s a promotion. And it’s a few days a month. But keep yawning. You might fall asleep and miss he promotion.
