Ebates is having the Travel Thursdays promotion, where they offer up to 10% cash back on hotel bookings made through Ebates Hotels! Each Travel Thursday will have a specific theme that offers special pricing and deals on airfare, rental cars, cruises, and activities.
The promotion will run every Thursday through March 29, 2018. And the deals will be available between 9 pm Pacific Time on Wednesday and 11:50 pm Pacific Time on Thursday.
Here are the details of the deal.

Is This a Good Deal?
Making a hotel reservation through Ebates Hotels will count as a 3rd-party booking. So you will NOT earn hotel points or be able to take advantage of current promotions. And the hotels probably will NOT recognize your elite status.
Before you book through Ebates, you’ll want to make sure you’re getting the best cash back rate. So be sure to check sites like Cashback Monitor and Evreward to see what other portals are offering. And don’t forget to look for deals on RetailMeNot, which currently does NOT show up in the shopping portal search engine results.
Before you jump on this deal, don’t forget that you can get 10% back on all Hotels.com bookings made through this link and paid for at the time of booking with the Capital One® Venture® Rewards Credit Card or Capital One® VentureOne® Rewards Credit Card (valid through January 31, 2020). That deal stacks with the Hotels.com rewards program for even more savings!
I did see some hotel cash back rates even higher than 10%, and those deals weren’t through Ebates Hotels. So you could click through to book directly with the hotel. You’ll earn hotel points, promotion bonuses, and benefit from your elite status!
It’s definitely worth a few minutes of your time to see if you can save on any upcoming trips. But be sure to research all your options, and do the math so you know it’s the best deal for your situation.
You can get these deals every Thursday through March 29, 2018, from 9 pm Pacific time on Wednesday and 11:50 pm Pacific Time on Thursday. And each Thursday has a different theme, with deals on airfare, rental cars, cruises, and activities.
