Orbitz is giving their customers an opportunity to save $50 on a hotel reservation of $100 or more. And not only that, for every room reserved under this promotion they will donate $100 to Stand Up To Cancer. To be eligible you must use a MasterCard when making your reservation and use the promo code MASTERPASS. (If you are new to Orbitz, sign up here to get a $25 bonus to use on a future reservation). UPDATE: It looks like the referral bonus might no longer be available. I am not 100% sure yet.
While this isn’t as good as the $100 off a $100+ hotel reservation they’ve offered in the past, getting up to a 50% off discount is quite nice! This promotion is valid for reservations booked by December 31, 2015 for travel through June 30, 2016. Only hotels with the green “promo code eligible” label will qualify. Typically this means that major chain hotels are excluded.
To fully maximize on the promotion, you can try to book reservations as one night stays. No where in the terms can I find a place where it says a maximum number of times the promotion code can be used per account, but I have yet to try it myself.
Note: You will need to use MasterPass as your checkout option. If you do not already have a MasterPass account it takes about 3 minutes to create. You ultimately add a credit card to your MasterPass account and Orbitz will charge that card on file.

You also should be able to stack any Orbitz Rewards credits you might have. With Orbitz Rewards you earn 5% back for hotel reservations booked via their app and 3% back for hotel reservations booked on your computer. There is also a new member sign up bonus where you can get $25 to use towards a future reservation. Here is my referral link, but feel free to leave yours in the comments section as well.
Anyone able to find a good deal!?
