Fairmont Card From Chase

Note: I am NOT compensated for this post.

With Fairmont being absorbed by Accor Hotels, the Fairmont card from Chase is only viable for a short while longer, but I am tempted to get one. I have until Jan 31, 2016 to decide.


  • 2 free nights at any Fairmont location after spending $3,000 in 3 months.
  • No annual fee in the first year, and presumably only year, of card membership.
  • Fairmont status boost to the middle level.
  • No foreign transaction fees.
  • Though not officially impossible, don't plan to enjoy a free night at The Plaza or The Savoy.
  • Chase's Fairmont points program is separate from Fairmont's President Club program. The Chase points must be redeemed through Chase. The award chart is miserable too. Expect a $25 gift card.  Free nights start at $25,000 in spending.
  • If your +1 gets the card too, then you have 4 nights and that could make for a nice long weekend in Barbados, Europe, or Canada.
  • The merger hasn't been approved by regulators, but this is much less risky than the SPG-Marriott union.
