Expedia is always offering special deals like their Expedia Rewards Points Program. Even if you miss one sale, there is always a more timely one right around the corner. The online travel booking agent is offering Double Points for Rewards Members who book a cruise or hotel package before October 31, 2013.
This is a very special bonus reward considering that usually cruises are not eligible for Expedia Rewards Points at all.The majority of the cruises eligible depart from Southern Florida for 3 - 7 days and nights of fun and adventure in the sunny Caribbean. Select voyages from New Orleans, New York and Europe are also available. Boat in style aboard Carnival, Norwegian Cruise Line, Holland America Line, and Costa.
To become a rewards member, all you have to do is register at Expedia.com and start booking travel. You will earn two points for every $1 that you spent on flights, hotels, and activities at Expedia. Travel packages earn even more points. Then you redeem them for credit towards future hotel or flight bookings.
You can even combine your Expedia Points with the Frequent Flier Miles that you already have. It is considered acceptable to book travel for someone else, as long as you are signed into your Expedia account when you do.There is no limit on how many Rewards Points that you can earn at Expedia. But Rewards Members who book over $10,000 worth of travel are awarded Elite Plus status with free room upgrades and more flexible dates.
What’s the catch? Well you do have to redeem your points within 18 months or they expire. Rewards Points cannot be used in countries where they are illegal, although they do not mention where that might be in the Terms & Conditions. Finally, you have to be logged into your Expedia account in order to accrue points when you book travel.
All in all, the Expedia Rewards Points Program is a pretty good deal, especially for anyone that loves to travel. Even if you can't make it to the Bahamas before this March, we recommend signing up for their points program.
