Orbitz 50 Faves Facebook Game: Orbitz has a unique game that allows you to win one of 50 of their favorite vacation packages. I “played”, not really knowing what I was doing, by placing my 5 bids on 5 of my favorite trips (Bermuda, Dubai, Kauai, Cancun, and Paris). It looks like the more friends you invite, the more “bids” you get. I didn’t bother going out of my way to send invites – I’m the type that never wants to bother friends with these kind of offers, but good luck to those who don’t mind doing that!
Free Accor A|Club Platinum Status: Gary @ View From the Wing note that the Free Platinum Status with Accor Hotels A|Club is back again. I have yet to stay at an Accor property, but this free status has been helpful in providing me quite a few status matches (including Diamond Status with Best Western’s Gold Crown Club).To read more about my experiences with status matching with my free platinum status, please see this related post: Hotel Status Match Success From Free Status Upgrades.
