The Chase Fairmont card dies tomorrow, August 15, 2017. Accounts will be forcibly converted to Chase Sapphire Preferred.
You can no longer earn Chase Fairmont points – that ended with your statement prior to August 15.
There are two things you can do in the waning hours:
- If you have not met the $6,000/$12,000 spend to get a free night, transactions today should count to the total.
- You can still redeem for Fairmont rewards if you prefer those over conversion to Ultimate Rewards points.
- If you have spent $12,000 in your cardmember year, you will get the 1 night certificate on your anniversary or 8-10 weeks from August 15, 2017, whichever is sooner
- Those who do not have a full-year to spend the $12,000 on their cardmember year will get a courtesy anniversary good to February 28, 2017 if they spend $6,000 by August 15, 2017, exact anniversary date eligible not specified (and you cannot get more than 1 free night certificate in this year)
Chase Fairmont Rewards:
Free night awards start at 25,000 points for standard rooms in their Collection A properties and go up to 75,000 points for a Suite/Fairmont Gold at Collection D. Here are the collections.
Other awards include travel and gift card. The full reward program terms are here.
I have not seen the value in these rewards and am happy to let my points convert to Ultimate Rewards.
