Disclosure: Emily & I get a commission for links on the blog. You don’t have to use our links, but we’re very grateful when you do. We don’t write about all the credit cards available in the US, but only the ones which get us miles and points or cash back for Big Travel with Small Money!
Orbitz has launched a new card which gets you a $50 statement credit after you spend $200 in the 1st 90 days. So this is NOT a card you get just for the sign-up bonus!
You get an additional 5% back in Orbitz Orbucks when you use the Orbitz Reward Visa card for your travel purchases on Orbitz. And you get 2% back in Orbitz Orbucks EVERYWHERE ELSE. Orbitz Orbucks can only be redeemed for hotel purchases made through Orbitz.
I like that there’s no annual fee, no foreign transaction fee, it’s issued by a bank I don’t already use (Comenity Capital Bank, issuers of the Virgin America credit cards), and that it grants you automatic “Star” status for free internet and breakfast at certain hotels…but this card is definitely NOT for everyone.
Or even for me!
