How To Get the $20 Orbitz Rewards Bonus Even if You’re Not Targeted

By  | 

When I saw View From The Wing’s on Orbitz offering an additional $20 in Orbucks (which can be used towards hotel bookings on Orbitz) for flights booked January 14-31, I was excited! In the past I’ve been able to stay for free at great places like Campbell House using my Orbucks.

So I immediately pulled up the site and started searching. Hmmmm. No bonus. I tried lots of dates and locations, nothing.

I logged out of my Orbitz account and tried again. Nothing.

My flight searches met the $50 minimum base fare requirement, so that couldn’t be it. So then I tried replicating the search VFTW had shown.

Still nothing.

Then I opened a incognito window in Chrome and did the same search. Bingo!

I wondered if it would disappear when I logged in to check out, but it still showed up on the payment page.

My flight meets all the terms and conditions, so it should credit.

You must be an existing Orbitz Rewards member signed into your account at time of booking or join Orbitz Rewards at time of booking to be eligible for this promotion. Book an eligible standalone round-trip flight and receive $20 in Promotional Orbucks. This promotion is available on select standalone round-trip flight bookings (not booked as part of a package or as an add-on to a standalone hotel or car booking) that display the $20 in Bonus Orbucks offer for that flight in the search results page. Offer is valid on eligible flight bookings made from Wednesday January 14, 2014 at 12:01 AM CST to Saturday January 31, 2014 until 11:59 PM CST. Minimum purchase must be $50 before taxes and fees to qualify. Limit one award of Promotional Orbucks pursuant to this promotion per itinerary and per Orbitz Rewards account. Promotional Orbucks expire if not redeemed within 60 days of issuance. Offer is non-transferable and not redeemable for cash. Promotional Orbucks will be deposited in your account within approximately 5 business days. If you cancel your eligible booking after the Promotional Orbucks are deposited in your account, Orbitz reserves the right to remove the Promotional Orbucks.  Orbitz reserves the right to change or limit the promotion in its sole discretion. See Orbitz Rewards Terms and Conditions for additional applicable terms and conditions on Orbitz Rewards.

If the offer isn’t showing up for you, try an incognito window! And if you don’t have an Orbitz Rewards account yet, sign up using my referral link and we’ll both get $25 off our next hotel booking.
