Updates: I’ve heard from a couple of readers that the $25 invite credits are not posting immediately as they did in the past. I’m guessing it’s because the site is getting slammed, but the promotion is 100% valid per the current refer a friend FAQ.
You may already know Orbitz Cyber Monday Sale is a doozy with $100 off a hotel booking of $100 or more with code VISACHECKOUT. I’ve found a new wrinkle that may make it even better. When I was playing around with possible hotel bookings, I noticed the following:
This means that promo codes appear to be also eligible for Orbucks redemption, and you get $25.00 of them FREE with invite! I can’t guarantee it will work with VISACHECKOUT, but my gut is that they wouldn’t turn the redemption feature off for just one promo as they’re trying to promote both earning and redeeming in the rewards program. Sign up here for Orbitz Rewards to get $25.00 free Orbucks on your first hotel purchase of $50 or more.
The promo code isn’t live yet, keep an eye on twitter and facebook as I’ll update both once I see it’s working. It’s limited to 10,000 bookings, so act fast. Before then, you’ll want to do a few things:
- Set up your Visa Checkout account if you don’t have one as you’ll need it to redeem the promo code. You do NOT need to use a Visa card as Visa Checkout is like paypal or google checkout. I have mine connected to an AMEX.
- Get your Orbitz Rewards account set up for $25 free Orbucks if you don’t have one yet.
- Figure out where and when you want to use the promo code so you can book as soon as the promo code is live. It’s good till June 1, 2015. To find eligible hotels, use this link to find “promo code eligible hotels”.
