The major hotel chains sometimes sell discounted gift cards, which is a great way to lower the cost of hotel stays. For the past few years Fairmont has been offering bonuses on gift card purchases at least twice a year.
They typically offer one of these promotions around Mother’s Day and around Black Friday, and this year will be no different. A few days ago I wrote about how Fairmont is bringing back this promotion for Black Friday, and this is a reminder that the promotion is going live very shortly.
As was initially noted on Fairmont’s Facebook page, you can shortly buy a Fairmont e-gift card with a 20% bonus. This promotion is available today only (Friday, November 29, 2019), from 2PM until 5PM EST.
Historically each person can only take advantage of the promotion once, though you can purchase up to $5,000 worth of gift cards under the offer, which would lead to a $1,000 bonus.
Each gift card can be worth at most $2,000, so you’d want to load your shopping cart with a few gift cards if you wanted to maximize the offer.
You can choose whether you want to buy gift cards in USD or CAD. While you can use the gift cards in currencies other than the ones they’re issued in, the conversion rates used for those purposes may be unfavorable.
The gift cards don’t expire, and you don’t have to stay at a Fairmont hotel to use a gift card — they’re also valid for restaurant and spa purchases.
I know Tiffany used this for her stay at the Fairmont Kea Lani a few years ago, and it saved her quite a bit of money.
In general these Fairmont gift card deals are worthwhile, as getting a 20% bonus card represents a very nice offer. If you have some Fairmont stays coming up, then I’d seriously consider this. Since Fairmont gift cards don’t expire, it’s tough to go wrong if you stay with Fairmont at least semi-frequently.
If you’re interested, get ready, because you’ll have just a few hours to take advantage of this.
Do you plan to take advantage of this Fairmont gift card offer?
