7 Travel Companies Offering Extra Cash Back This Week

What’s the easiest way to save on travel expenses? I’d say the answer is rebates. Travel rebates are essentially effortless, whether you rack them up by using a rewards credit card or a cash-back portal like Ebates — or both.

That’s especially true this week, when you can increase your travel savings by up to 12 percent by going through Ebates. That’s because several major travel booking websites that partner with Ebates are offering double cash back. As of Tuesday morning, they include:

  1. Booking.com: Offering 4 percent cash back
  2. Expedia: Up to 10 percent
  3. Hotels.com: Up to 6 percent
  4. Marriott: 5 percent
  5. Orbitz: Up to 9 percent
  6. Priceline: Up to 12 percent
  7. Virgin America: 3 percent

Around two dozen other retailers are also offering double cash back through Ebates this week. As of Tuesday morning, they include:

  • GNC: Offering 11 percent cash back
  • Groupon: 9 percent
  • Kohl’s: 6 percent
  • Nike: 10 percent
  • Sephora: 8 percent
  • Walmart: 2 percent

This offer extends through March 20.

So what exactly does it mean that Ebates is a cash-back portal? By doing your online shopping through its website, you’ll earn rebates in the form of cash — during this promotion and in the future — on purchases from some 2,000 retailers that partner with Ebates.

I pocketed about $100 last year by shopping through Ebates.

How is that possible? It’s simple. Ebates receives a commission from retailers for referring online shoppers to those retailers’ websites. Then, Ebates shares that commission with shoppers.

It’s free to sign up for an Ebates account, and it’s free to use the portal.

Ebates is also the only cash-back portal that currently also offers cash back in brick-and-mortar stores.

While Ebates is perhaps the oldest and best known cash-back portal, it’s not the only one. Others include Mr. Rebates, Swagbucks Shop and TopCashBack.

Even if you already have an Ebates account, you might want to check out other cash-back portals because different portals often offer different cash-back percentages for a given retailer.
