eBates Just did something I've never seen before

I've tried a myriad of shopping portals, and eBates just showed me why they are the best. In December last year, they had a 12% cash back on IHG reservations. I made a two night BOGO stay at the IC SIN with a third night on award. The hotel combined the three into a single bill, and the cash back never posted. I just today submitted the eBates online form for the credit, and their reply, about 8 hours later, was that though they hadn't received their compensation, I shouldn't have to wait any longer. The full 12% posted to my eBates account and shows that it will be paid out to my PayPal account 5/15. This is the only one that hadn't posted since I switched over to them, and I'm impressed. I've missed out on thousands of MyPoints and cash back on other sites, with lame excuses as to why they couldn't honor and post them. I guess it comes down to that word: honor.

Good for you, glad it worked. I use TCB and MREBATES. The only problems I've had is whenever I made a booking for Budget Car Rental, they always track and are confirmed at $0.00 I get the same excuse that I used a rate that was not applicable to their T&C. Might have to check them out.

I'm personally a fan of TCB in general, but I've had great luck with eBates in situations where I don't think TCB would've paid out.

Just to be careful changes made to the reservation at the hotel will void Cash Back.
