Orbitz Rewards Adds Restaurants to Loyalty Program

Orbitz Rewards Adds Restaurants to Loyalty Program

On the heels of Priceline’s OpenTable acquisition, Orbitz is getting into the restaurant space—the company yesterday launched Orbitz Rewards Dining, a new program that allows loyalty members to score extra perks for dining at specific restaurants. It’s the result of a partnership with Rewards Network, a Chicago-based company that maintains a database of 11,000 restaurants.

Rewards Network has ties to other travel cards, including AAdvantage and MileagePlus cards. Simply register up to five credit cards—Orbitz or otherwise—and you’ll get 5 percent cash back, in Orbucks, when a participating restaurant's charge shows up on your credit card statement. (Those who carry Orbitz credit cards get a full 7% cash back in Orbucks instead.) Given that you never have to think about it again, it’s well worth taking a minute to register your cards—you can do so right here.
