Orbitz Introduces Travel Rewards Program
The content is accurate at the time of publication and is subject to change.

Users of the Orbitz online travel booking service now have an incentive to book travel through the site. A member loyalty program will let them earn rewards from Orbitz—and add them to any rewards they already get from other credit card, frequent flyer or hotel rewards programs.

Orbitz Rewards is free to join. Any user can sign up for membership, and rewards can be earned and redeemed instantly. Members earn up to 5% back when they book stays at Orbitz Rewards hotels and 1% back when they book flights and vacation packages.

Rewards are called Orbucks and are added to a member’s account immediately upon purchase of a flight, hotel stay or vacation. One Orbuck equals one dollar when booking travel plans on Orbitz. There are no blackout dates or other restrictions on redemption.

Combined rewards, referrals net biggest savings

Orbucks can be used in combination with other promo codes and discount offers, and do not affect earning rewards from other loyalty programs. Travelers can double or triple dip by earning Orbucks, frequent flyer miles and credit card reward points at the same time.

Members can also add to their rewards balance by referring friends to Orbitz Rewards. Users will earn 25 Orbucks for each friend who submits a referral code when joining and then completes one hotel stay booked through the site. Members can earn up to 1,000 Orbucks per year in referrals. The joining member has incentive to book that hotel stay, as well: upon joining they will get a $25 promotional code to use on their first hotel booking.

Stars and SuperStars

Orbitz travel reward members who use the service to book hotel stays will be eligible for Star and SuperStar membership status after a designated number of hotel stays per year. It takes four nights to reach Star status and 12 nights to reach SuperStar. Benefits of these membership levels may include things like free Wi-Fi, room upgrades and free breakfast. Star and SuperStar members also have access to a priority customer service line in case they need to contact Orbitz with questions about their travel bookings.

Through November 30, Orbitz Rewards members can get $25 in reward dollars with the “Zap that Bag Fee” promotion. When passengers pay a baggage check fee, all they have to do is take a picture of their receipt and send it to Orbitz to get the bonus Orbucks.  For more information and to sign up for Orbitz Rewards, go to the website.
