Orbitz has been promotion their rewards programs a lot lately and I wrote a piece about it when it was launched last year (read more here).
Orbitz is now offering $20 in Orbucks that you can use towards future hotel booking by making a standalone flight purchase between May 27 and June 11, 2014. The actual flight date can be later.
Here’s what you should do:
- Sign up for the Orbitz Rewards program here to get a $25 hotel coupon
- Access the Orbitz deal page with the flight deal here.
You can then combine these for $45 off your hotel booking. The $25 joining coupon has some minimum spend requirement that is either $75 or $100.
Orbitz is usually not my first choice for flight bookings (Expedia is) but I don’t mind collecting these bonus Orbucks and book a flight using the service. Just make sure that the flight that you are booking doesn’t incur Orbitz service fee (they do have for some flights).
