That all looks really good, right? But, it is important to note the word “qualifying” for which hotels this will apply. This isn’t going to work on all hotels so let’s check into more of the details.
“Qualifying” Hotels Likely Means Non-Chain Properties?
The terms say it is good at “qualifying hotels” but does not say which hotels. I would imagine that it may be like other promo codes that we have had in the past where it may not apply to chain hotels. But, it could also mean that they are just covering themselves with that exclusion in case a particular property does not accept Orbitz promo codes. Without details about that, we do not know, though!
The code only applies to prepaid bookings and cannot include any package (no flight/car package). This is understandable but is worth noting.
Single Room, Single Booking, Single Value
The code only applies to a single room and “There is no residual value and no credit will be issued if the purchase amount is less than the coupon code discount. The coupon code may not be re-used, even in the event that you change or cancel the booking.” This makes it even more restrictive as it has to be a single reservation.
I know there are people that will be able to take advantage of this but I have never had a $1,000 hotel reservation as I always use points or have shorter stays. So, if you are like me, make sure you realize going in that this is for a single room/single reservation and you cannot make changes after the fact.
The Potential Negatives with the Orbitz $1,000 Deal
- Only works for prepaid reservations (so, no changing or cancelling that reservation)
- No residual value (so if you book a $500 hotel stay, that will take away all $1,000 in value)
- Only at qualifying hotels (no word exactly on what “qualifying” includes or excludes – find out when you book)
- Even if you can book chain hotels, you won’t get elite recognition/credit for that stay
Is the Orbitz $1,000 Deal a Good Deal?
If you typically stay at non-chain hotels and for multi-night stays that would be over $1,000 in total, this is a great way to get a 35% discount on those stays! I actually never used to book many non-chain stays but have started looking at more and more and having a code like this would be a great way to go.
But, make sure you are able to get the full value and not having to “create” a situation to use it (ie. your preferred hotel won’t apply so you manufacture a trip to get the certificate used).
Just make sure you make the decision quickly – the 60 coupons will likely be gone in minutes if not less.
