TopCashback is a site I’ve mentioned a few times in the past as it offers cashback at hundreds of retailers in both the US and the UK. Right now the US and the UK sites offering some very tempting looking cashback deals on bookings made with some of the bigger hotel chains.
The biggest discounts are currently to be found on the UK version of TopCashback but that’s not to say that the cashback on offer on the US site is something to ignore. Also, while the UK offers are time-constrained, the offers on the US site are available most of the time.
It’s worth remembering that when clicking though TopCashback you’re still being directed directly to the hotel chain’s website so, unlike bookings through online travel agents (like Expedia and Orbitz), your bookings are still eligible for any elite privileges you may be entitled to and you’ll earn points and credits towards elite status as normal.
Cashback on IHG Bookings
The UK TopCashback site is currently offering up to 15% back on IHG bookings made in the next 6 days. The highest cashback is available for bookings made at InterContinental and Hotel Indigo properties…..
…but, with the exception of the paltry 3% cashback at Kimpton properties, the other properties in the IHG portfolio are offering pretty good cashback too.
TopCashback USA isn’t being quite so generous with its cashback offer for IHG bookings as there’s only 8% on offer across the board….
….but there may be a small upside to this.
Unlike on the UK site there’s no separate mention of Kimpton on TopCashback USA so, as Kimpton is clearly part of the IHG portfolio and as it’s not mentioned as an exclusion anywhere in the cashback T&Cs, it’s very possible that you can get 8% cashback at Kimpton properties too.
Cashback on Accor Hotels Bookings
TopCashback UK has a very good offer on bookings with Accor Hotels with guests able to get up to 15% cashback at a number of the chain’s brands:
There are two important things to note here:
- Unlike the IHG cashback offer this one ends earlier – in 3 days – so don’t wait too long before deciding if you should book.
- This cashback should stack nicely with the Accor points promotion I wrote about earlier today.
Just like with the IHG promotion not all the chain’s brands will earn 15% cashback but with 7 brands qualifying for cashback of 12% or more this is still a very strong offer.
Unfortunately the Accor offer available on TopCashback USA is nowhere near as good as what is being offered on the UK site….
…but 6% is still a lot better than nothing and, combined with the points promotion that’s currently running, this could be a good way to save a little cash.
Cashback On Radisson Blu Bookings
The UK TopCashback site is running a pretty specific cashback offer specifically for the country’s Radisson Blu Edwardian properties.
Bookings at 4 of the London properties qualify for 10% cashback while all other online bookings get 8% back.
TopCashback USA is offering a similar deal on Radisson Blu properties as it is on Accor Hotels reservations – 6% back.
This may not be enough to make you change any plans you’ve already made but, if you were going to book a Radisson Blue property anyway, why not get 6% cashback while you’re at it?
Other Hotel Offers
If you’re not worried about receiving elite benefits or earning points or credits towards elite status, then there cashback you can get on bookings through the likes of Hotels.com….
…could be well worth having.
One last word of advice: make sure you take screenshots as you go though TopCashback and as you complete your bookings – if for some reason your cashback doesn’t track it’s always good to have solid proof of your transaction.
