Expedia just sent an email about the changes coming to the Expedia Rewards program in 2013 in several phases. Expedia is apparently joining the Expedia Rewards and Elite Plus programs. You can read more about this change here.
Not sure, what this is exactly going to mean. The Expedia Rewards program is already so watered down that I don’t even take it into consideration, when I am making bookings. I do continue to book on Expedia, however. But I would do it with or without this program.
It is good that Expedia is trying to revamp its Rewards and Elite programs. I think that it would be better trying to fix their outsourced call center in India first.
