$25 Hotel Credit When You Sign Up for Orbitz Rewards

By  | 

Update: Though nothing in the terms & conditions indicated you could not do both offers, some readers are reporting that they did not receive the $25 email. When I’ve contacted Orbitz I’ve gotten mixed responses — some agents saying the $10 offer invalidates the $25 code and others offering a $25 refund on the first booking.

First saw this promo mentioned on Pizza In Motion: new members can currently sign up for Orbitz Rewards and get $10 to use instantly towards a hotel booking. This also stacks with the $25 promo code you get towards your first hotel stay when signing up with my referral link.

The landing page won’t show the $10 promo but it will be instantly credited to your account. The $25 promo code will be emailed, usually within 24 hoursupdate: Orbitz reps say it may now take up to 5 business days. Note the $10 credit expires in 60 days.

What is Orbitz Rewards?

Orbitz Rewards is one of my favorite loyalty programs because the benefits are instant. You earn Orbucks for most bookings — hotel, flights, and vacation packages– made through Orbitz which can then be redeemed towards a hotel booking.

If you’ve only earned $.13 you can take that off your next Orbitz hotel booking. This is way better than alternatives like Expedia Rewards which require a minimum number of points to redeem for a discount. Orbucks can be combined with their other sales and promos to maximize your savings. 

With only 4 stays you become a gold member which comes with hotel upgrades, wifi, and breakfast.

I use my Orbucks for non-chain hotel stays which won’t impact my ability to earn elite status.

      I’m sorry to hear that! I had a friend test it out first (hence the screenshot), and had no problem. I’d suggest chatting Orbitz Customer Service here to let them know your credit is missing: https://faq.orbitz.com/app/chat/chat_launch. Let me know if you still have problems!

        I don’t know how you would get the $10 instantly. Since I clicked on your referral link, there is no $10 offer, only the $25 offer is valid right?

      I checked with Orbitz and they said it may take 5 business days (which is a change from my previous experience). Thanks for letting me know — I’ve also updated the post with that info

    Hi,

    I used your link and got $10 instant .I has been more than a week and still haven’t received $25 promo code e mail.
    Any idea if this link actually gives you the $25 promo code?

      I will follow up with Orbitz to see why you didn’t receive an email.

    Update: Several people have reported not receiving the promo email and I’ve followed up with Customer Service who are researching it. If you did not receive an email, please let me know the email address you registered with (or just leave a comment with the correct email address associated with it) and I will contact them on your behalf. Or you can chat Orbitz Customer Service directly here: https://faq.orbitz.com/app/chat/chat_launch

    I was chatting with orbitz and they keep asking for the referral e mail address.And they also said you can refer only one person that’s why I didn’ t get the promo code.So what is the e mail address that I have to give them?

    Hi Keri,

    I used your link back in July to sign up for Orbitz Rewards and never got the $25 promo email. I finally got around to contacting them tonight and they say they need the email address of the person who referred me. Can you please let me know your e-mail so I can follow up again with Orbitz…or if you are still offering to contact them for people, can you reach out to them for me?

    Thanks!
