Earn 10 Amex points/dollar (or 10% cash back) on IHG bookings

Rakuten is back with another great cash back offer, allowing travelers to earn 10% cash back or 10 Amex Membership Rewards Points per dollar on most IHG (InterContinental, Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, etcā€¦) bookings. This offer is a fantastic opportunity to save money on your next IHG stay, so be sure to take advantage of it before it expires.

Before we dive into the details of this offer, let’s take a look at what Rakuten is. Rakuten is a cash back website that allows users to earn money back on their online purchases. By clicking through the Rakuten portal and making a purchase, users can earn a percentage of their purchase back as cash or rewards points. It’s a great way to save money while shopping online.

Now, let’s get into the specifics of the Rakuten IHG cash back offer. According to Rakuten, there are a few terms and conditions to be aware of. Cash back is not available on bookings with Kimpton Hotels, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Six Senses, or IHG Army Hotels. Any changes made to the reservation at the hotel will void the cash back. Specialty negotiated rates, such as IHG friends & Family, are not eligible for cash back. Cash back is also not available on the purchase of reward Club Points or the Ambassador Certificate program. Finally, rooms booked and paid for by IHG reward Club Points are not eligible for cash back incentives. It’s important to carefully read all the terms on the Rakuten page before making your booking.

Fortunately, this time there don’t appear to be any significant exclusions from the Rakuten cash back offer. Unlike previous promotions, there doesn’t seem to be a requirement for bookings to be made at IHG’s US properties, so all stays at eligible IHG properties around the world should trigger this offer.

What makes this offer particularly enticing is that not only will you earn 10% cash back on eligible IHG bookings through Rakuten, but you’ll also continue to earn IHG Rewards points and credit towards IHG elite status. You’ll also enjoy any elite status benefits that you may be entitled to. Rakuten’s links take you directly to the IHG website, so all stays booked in this way are treated like any other booking made directly with IHG.

If you prefer earning points instead of cash back, Rakuten allows you to change your account settings to earn Amex Membership Rewards points instead. This is a great option for those who value points more than cash.

In addition to the Rakuten cash back offer, IHG is currently running a couple of targeted promotions for members of its IHG One Rewards program. These promotions allow select members to earn bonus points for every night consumed at IHG properties worldwide. Be sure to check your emails to see if you’ve been targeted for these promotions.

Lastly, before making any bookings, it’s worth checking if there are any Amex or Chase offers available for IHG stays. Both credit card issuers often run targeted promotions for stays at IHG properties, so be sure to check all your credit cards to see if any offers are waiting for you.

In conclusion, the Rakuten IHG cash back offer is a fantastic opportunity to save money on your next IHG stay. With 10% cash back or 10 Membership Rewards Points per dollar, this offer makes IHG’s properties even more attractive. Don’t miss out on this limited-time offer and be sure to take advantage of it before it expires. Happy booking!
