On Cyber Monday I wrote about the amazing deal Orbitz was offering, whereby you could receive $100 off a hotel stay when using Visa Checkout. The promotion was gone within hours.
Well, the promotion appears to be live again, with the caveat that it’s only valid on hotel stays of two nights or more (previously even one night stays qualified).
As I explained last time, the promotion is valid when you book a qualifying, two night stay at a standalone hotel for a stay between now and June 30, 2015. You must use Visa Checkout as the method of payment, and use promotion code VISACHECKOUT. Using Visa Checkout is pretty easy, so that requirement shouldn’t be a limiting factor for anyone.
As I said above, this won’t be valid for most chain hotels. When you enter the promo code and go to the search page, you’ll automatically see eligible hotels listed as being “PROMO CODE ELIGIBLE.” The discounted price will then be displayed on the next page.
For example, the Hyland Motel Van Nuys is ~$51 per night, so using this promo code for a two night stay knocks down the rate to ~$1 per night pre-tax.
I’m not suggesting you stay at a motel in Van Nuys, but there are plenty of other great standalone properties where this discount will be valuable.
Here are the basic terms of the promotion:
Save $100 instantly on select 2+ night hotel stays when you pay with Visa Checkout. Enter promo code: VISACHECKOUT.
Book a qualifying standalone, pre-paid $100 or more hotel stay for two or more nights with travel occurring between December 10, 2014 and June 30, 2015 via Orbitz using Visa Checkout as the payment method and promo code VISACHECKOUT and receive $100 off your booking. Available only while supplies last. Discount applies to prepaid PROMO CODE ELIGIBLE stay. Most major chains excluded.
So, who took advantage of this promotion last time, and who plans on taking advantage of it this time?
