Orbitz has been running its own rewards program for years that comes with elite benefits and Orbucks that you can use towards hotel bookings.
Now, Orbitz has enhanced (positively) the benefits of its Platinum members effectively immediately that can choose lounge pass instead of the TSA Pre and the previously $50 in bag fee credit(s) can now be used towards number of other fees as well.
You can access Orbitz Rewards here.
1. TSA Pre or LoungeBuddy Pass
Previously, you could only choose to receive the code for the TSA Pre enrollment. Now you can get one time LoungeBuddy pass worth up to $50.
2. $50 Travel Reimbursement
You previously could get this credit only for checked baggage fees. Now, you can get in-flight or airport wifi fees credited too along with number or other travel related expenses.
Here are Orbitz Rewards Elite Requirements & Benefits:
Seems that I will get $50 in in-flight wifi charges “waived” this year and next year due to my Orbitz Rewards Platinum status. You get Orbitz’ Orbucks funny money that you need to use to book hotels on their platform that you can combine with their discount coupon campaigns.
