Every six months, Fairmont runs a very limited-time offer on its gift cards. How limited? We’re talking 1-3 PM Eastern Time, announced the day before. (HT to Loyalty Lobby) This promotion includes a 15% bonus, meaning you pay face value but get an additional 15% value for free. Ultimately it works out to a 13% discount. The maximum purchase amount for this promotion is $5,000, but the denomination of an individual gift card is capped at $2,000. Check back tomorrow to buy them here on Fairmont’s website.

Just last week a reader emailed me to ask when the next sale would be. I didn’t have the news then, but I relayed information on past sales which were November 27, 2015; May 4, 2016; and November 25, 2016. I guess this year’s offer is a week late! But you can see a pattern here. If you enjoy staying at any of Fairmont’s hotels in Canada, Hawaii, or elsewhere, then you likely won’t have another opportunity until Thanksgiving.
