Fairmont Selling Gift Cards With 20% Bonus

Filed Under: Fairmont, Great Deals

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.

Fairmont typically offers one of these promotions around Mother’s Day and one around Black Friday, and this year is no different. Earlier in the month I wrote about how Fairmont would be offering this promotion for Black Friday, and this is a reminder of that, as the promotion goes live soon.

It’s worth taking a bit of time to think about whether you may have any upcoming Fairmont stays, where this could make a difference.

Between 2PM and 5PM EST today (Friday, November 27, 2020), you’ll be able to buy a Fairmont e-gift card with a 20% bonus.

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 several years ago, and it saved her quite a bit of money.

Bottom line

In general these Fairmont gift card deals are worthwhile, as getting a 20% bonus card represents a very nice offer.

This is a promotion that Fairmont has consistently been offering throughout the years at least twice a year, so for some people this will make sense, especially as the gift cards don’t expire.

If you’re interested set your alarm, because the promotion will be going live this afternoon, and you’ll only have a few hours to take advantage of it.

Do you plan to take advantage of this Fairmont gift card offer?

  1. YES!! I missed last time, thanks for the super-early heads up. Have a Canadian Grand Tour booked next year on the BOGO deal you posted earlier. Thanks Ben!

  2. This is essentially a straight up 20% off sale that’s combinable with other promotions so long as you’re able to pay with the gift card. It’s a good deal that I’ve taken advantage of several times before: mainly as a gift for a family member who visits Fairmonts repeatedly.

  3. @vbscript2 We had a great time… hotel was about 40% full on average for this week. Never need to fight for a pool spot and the lagoon was great for snorkeling. Only two restaurants open for now, spa and fitness are open but limited space for covid.

  4. Any deals on Park Hyatt ? Park Hyatt on top of the Shanghai financial center is the highest hotel in the world.
