Temporarily Increased Cash Back Rate Coming for Hyatt via Top Cash Back

Earlier today I saw this post on Milepoint that indicated the 3% cash rebate on Hyatt reservations booked by first going through Top Cash Back (my link) would be ending in three days.  That worried me a little as I have enjoyed getting 3% back on the Hyatt stays I book via that portal for myself and my husband (especially his work stays!).  I reached out to Top Cash Back to see what it meant by the 3% cash back ending in three days, and I like the answer I was given, so I wanted to share.

Top Cash Back Hyatt Discount

It does not mean that you will stop getting cash back on Hyatt stays booked via them in three days, it just means the cash back rate is changing.  In this case I was told it is temporarily changing for the better by going up to 4% cash back for a week or so.  This is clearly not amazingly different than 3%, but I like an increase better than a decrease, and it certainly means don’t rush to make bookings now to avoid the change coming in three days.  Just book what you need, and if all goes as planned you should get even a bit more back for your Hyatt stays booked next week via Top Cash Back.

I have been making my Hyatt paid reservations by first going through Top Cash Back for the last couple of months, and I’m not going to get rich by doing it, but I have saved some extra money.  I encourage you to do the same!  You still earn points and stay credits like normal from Hyatt as Top Cash Back simply takes you to the Hyatt website to make your reservations.

Top Cash Back Savings

I have heard some folks having trouble with Top Cash Back, but I have never had an issue getting paid for the cash back I have earned via that site.  When requested, the money is usually in my PayPal account by the next business day.  Remember you can also stack this with other ways to save on Hyatt reservations such as the 5% OPEN statement credit, My Elite Rate, and more.  Check out this post for more details on those ways to save.

  1. Count me in as one of those people that has had a problem with TopCashBack.com. I never received any money on my last transaction (which also happened to be with Hyatt).

  2. When I log into the TopCashBack website, I often see that there are lonnnnng wait times to get payouts. Hyatt shows as 6 weeks until I get what I am due there, GiftCardMall 11 weeks and Staples 4 weeks. I am curious if this is how long you have to wait as well?

    • Brian, frankly I just cash out a couple of times a year so I can’t tell you exactly how long everything took to post. I just let it build up and then cash out when the balance is a bit more substantial.

  3. Does TCB pay when Hyatt gift cards are purchased? I bought several awhile back and never got the 3%. When I purchased I read all the T&Cs and there was no mention of gift cards being excluded. I’m not surprised though, I’ve tried TCB a few times and am only hitting about 50% on getting reimbursed. Other sites, like mrrebates, I’m at 100%. I guess it’s YMMV.

  4. I would rather get cashback from any other site at a fraction than wait for TCB to not pay me again. Not TCB if that number is zero
