Rewards Network® and Orbitz Launch Orbitz Rewards® Dining Program

August 11, 2014 Loyalty No Comments Email Email

Rewards Network, the leading card-linked dining rewards platform, and, a leading online travel company, today announced the launch of Orbitz Rewards Dining.

This all-new rewards program enables members to easily earn Orbucks – the currency of the Orbitz Rewards loyalty program – every time they dine at more than 11,000 restaurants nationwide.

As the pioneer of card-linked marketing technology, Rewards Network provides benefits to three million consumers through the dining programs of more than a dozen premier brands. Orbitz Rewards has grown to more than two million members since the program’s launch in October 2013. These two best in class digital services come together through Orbitz Rewards Dining to provide a seamless experience that enables members to simply gI_93572_OrbitzScreenshotImgdine, earn, book travel, and repeat.

Orbitz Rewards members simply visit, register a credit or debit card, and then use that card to pay for dining at their choice of thousands of program restaurants across the country. There are no loyalty cards, coupons or vouchers to show. Members automatically earn five percent of dollars spent on each dine in Orbucks, or seven percent total in Orbucks when using their Orbitz Rewards Visa card. Orbucks can be redeemed on the Orbitz app for iOS and Android or the website when booking tens of thousands hotels around the world.

“Our years of experience with leading travel partners confirm that earning travel rewards by dining is highly compelling to consumers,” said Dan Hess, chief corporate development officer of Rewards Network. “We’re delighted to bring this earning opportunity to millions of additional consumers through our partnership with Orbitz and the launch of Orbitz Rewards Dining.”

Orbitz Rewards Dining is free to join. Members can visit from any desktop, mobile or tablet device to register and find restaurants that will let them effortlessly earn rewards toward future vacations – even while on vacation. The recently-launched Orbitz Rewards Visa card, which lets members earn Orbucks on everyday purchases, automatically earns Orbitz Rewards Dining benefits at program restaurants.

“Dining is such a big part of the travel experience that it was a logical next step for us to offer Orbitz Rewards Dining to our members and give them the opportunity to earn travel rewards throughout their entire vacation,” said Sarah Butterfass, senior director of loyalty for Orbitz Worldwide. “We are pleased to work with an experienced partner such as Rewards Network to keep our customers engaged with Orbitz Rewards and continue earning Orbucks towards their next vacation not only when dining while traveling but even when they are eating at their favorite restaurants near home.”

Orbitz Rewards Dining is the newest addition to the Rewards Network portfolio of dining programs, through which members can earn rewards such as airline miles, hotel points, retail rewards, charitable donations and more.
