There is a new offer for the Chase Fairmont Visa Signature Card 2 Free Nights waived annual fee.  The previous offer did not have the $95 annual waived for the first year.  Like the Chase Hyatt Visa, you can use your 2 free nights at ANY Fairmont Hotel.  You can see the destination map here. Below are the details of the card, thanks RomsDeals reader Tim for the info via this Flyertalk post

I highlighted the obvious perks of the credit card.  Spending $1,000 in 3 months is easy.  I really want this card, but I currently have 6 personal Chase cards and might have to wait it out.  Fairmont has some awesome properties worldwide and I would definitely try to get the best value out of them.  I would personally use them to stay at either the Fairmont Kea Lani (Maui) and Fairmont Orchid (Big Island).

One Night at Fairmont Kea Lani Maui ~ $600

You could possibly get about $1,200 or more in value from this credit card sign up.  Although Fairmont hotels are not everywhere, this card is great if there is a Fairmont at your ideal destination.  If you are new to credit cards I would probably recommend the Chase Sapphire Preferred or American Airline Credit Card before you apply for this card.  See my Credit Card Deals page for more info.

    I tried to use my free night certificates to book a room in the Fairmont Savoy Hotel in London last week and was told that there are no free night certificates being accepted at that hotel until March 2014. That left a very nasty taste in my mouth,. Not that all the comp nights have been booked but that none are available, period.

    • June 12, 2013 at 7:19 am

      I believe that is a new hotel that joined Fairmont. Sorry to hear that! I added the link to the blackout days and additional information. The Plaza and The Savoy are hard to redeem your free nights.

    Sweet, was just about to apply for this card for my apporama next Friday. We too plan to use it in Maui at the Fairmont Kea Lani this November. Save my wife and I $190 combined. Thanks Rom

    • June 12, 2013 at 12:40 pm

      Guess November rates are cheaper! I usually travel peak season bc my wife is a school teacher.

      • Kevin
        June 13, 2013 at 4:26 pm

        Haha, I meant $190 by not paying the $95 fee X2. The rates for November are almost $600/night. Killer deal!

        • June 13, 2013 at 8:24 pm

          That makes a lot more sense!

    Just got two refunds of the $95 for my wife and I via Chase SM.
    Also, you’re not highlighting that the Premier status that this grants. The certs I got: room upgrade, suite upgrade, 3rd night free, 2x$25 for lunch/dinner or spa. Room upgrades worked at the Kea Lani even on the free nights. And it booked into Mountain View, not the base Fairmont. Upgrade took it to Garden View. No ocean, but at least I won’t overlook the parking lot.

    • June 12, 2013 at 1:46 pm

      Thanks, I’ll write that in. Wrote the article when I was half asleep.

        Can you pay extra for an ocean view? To me there is no point in staying at a beach property if I can’t see the water lol

    • June 13, 2013 at 4:29 pm

      I sent chase a SM with the same landing page as provided in this blog post. They said I needed to provide a direct mail invitation in order to refund the $95 annual fee. Any tips?

      • June 13, 2013 at 8:25 pm

        Try calling in to see what they can do. Keep trying.

        • June 14, 2013 at 7:27 pm

          I wrote in again and got them to match the offer!

          • June 14, 2013 at 8:03 pm

            Congrats! Persistence is key.

      What a waste to not have Ocean View. I wouldn’t stay in Hawaii without it. Pay the $ to upgrade.

    • Sarah
      June 15, 2013 at 7:34 pm

      When you check in, just politely ask if they happen to have any rooms available with a view…I did that for our Fairmont stays in Maui and Hawaii and we got pretty nice ocean views both nights! Also be sure to let them know in advance if you are there celebrating anything such as a birthday or anniversary and they will send a nice treat to your room.

      • June 16, 2013 at 7:57 am

        Awesome, I really want to stay at those hotels, but might do Tahiti next yr!

      July 3, 2013 at 11:41 am

      can you use the certificates for two nights in a row and then get the third night free? That would be amazing

      • July 3, 2013 at 12:35 pm

        No you can’t unfortunately.

  4. June 12, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    Nice find, you are in:-)

    What is the restriction with the 2 free nights? No expiration? Like Hyatt free nights from Chase needs to be redeemed within 1 year.

    • June 13, 2013 at 5:53 am

      Yes, like chase hyatt it’s one yr

    We got this card a couple of months ago to use at the chateau Frontenac in Quebec City this summer. They said as long as there are regular rooms available to book you can use the certificates at most hotels. We are using our suite upgrade for these as well–so I feel like its a great value, even paying the fee. With no annual fee it is a total no brainer. In addition to he suite upgrade you also get a room upgrade and $100 of dining or spa credit. Great deal, low spend.

    • June 13, 2013 at 8:02 am

      Awesome, $100 of dining or spa credit is nice! It’s nice to “splurge” without spending anything. Enjoy!

    Also, I called last week and the Plaza will only let you redeem 1 free night per stay.

    • June 13, 2013 at 11:06 am

      Thanks for reporting. That’s a bummer, guess you’ll have to hotel hop.

    thanks for the sharing.. I’m going to request a refund of AF thru SM as we got this card in April!

    • June 13, 2013 at 12:47 pm

      Good luck!

      You cannot redeem nights at any Fairmont property. The Savoy in London is a Fairmont property but is very tightly capacity controlled. When I tried to make a free night redemption last week I was told that they are not accepting any Fairmont certificates until March 2014.

      • June 13, 2013 at 4:04 pm

        The Plaza and The Savoy are tightly capacity controlled but the other properties should be bookable minus the listed blackout days

    happy to note inform everyone that they refunded my $95 fee from the app in April! Thanks Rom!

    Fairmont is a special program and it’s not for every destination but you have to see their hotels in Banff, Lake Louise and Quebec and it’s hard to argue about the value of this card.

    • June 14, 2013 at 3:47 pm

      Awesome glad to hear! Enjoy your free nights!

  10. June 27, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    Can we cancel the card before the year is up?
    This is very inviting to me if so because I have a high school reunion in Bay Area in October.
    But I don’t need the card.

    • June 28, 2013 at 1:43 pm

      You definitely can, I would recommend transferring the credit line to another chase card before you close it.

  11. June 27, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    Also, do I still need the specific card when I go to use the free nights stay?

    • June 28, 2013 at 1:44 pm

      You have one year to use the free nights. You just have to redeem within a year regardless you have the card or not. I would think you would because you would cancel at last minute.

      • June 28, 2013 at 2:28 pm

        Ok, they gave me one. Fairmont somewhere here I come!
        thank you very much

    July 5, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    Rom, why do you recommend transferring the credit line to another chase card before canceling? I guess I figured it’d be better for my next apporama if I had less existing credit with chase so they’d have more to give me

    • July 5, 2013 at 4:00 pm

      There’s no magic formula to how much credit Chase will offer you. I think the best way is to just apply without canceling anything. Then give up a credit card if you have to. For example, I know I want to get rid of my chase Marriott. I’ll apply for the Chase Fairmont and if thy approve me in that’s great. If not, I’ll offer up the chase marriott.

    My husband and I both have cards. So we have four nights. Can I use his if he cannot travel with me?

    • July 10, 2013 at 6:32 am

      It would be like booking with points without the holder. That’s a ymmv situation and depends by property. I would call the hotel to see if you can.

    1. How long did it take to get the certs after completing the min. spends?

    2. Anyone used these in dubai at the Fairmont Palm?

    • August 21, 2013 at 9:25 pm

      Should be statement close or 4-6 weeks.

      • Jeri
        August 22, 2013 at 5:29 am

        I received me certificates very quickly. I used them in July at the Banff and Lake Louise hotels. Both locations were very accomodating and one upgraded me to a suite. Be sure to join the Fairmont President’s Club. That will also provide you with some benfits.

        • August 22, 2013 at 7:24 am

          Sounds like an awesome deal! I’m sure the retail price of those together is at least $1,000. Not bad for a CC sign up!

        • D Dyson
          October 5, 2013 at 5:12 pm

          We got our complimentary free nights and tried to get at Lake Louise the last 2 nights in July. They told us they did not have any nights available for the free nights but could offer us rooms for $599 a night. How many rooms do you think they might have blocked off almost 10 months away??? We were very disappointed.

          • October 5, 2013 at 8:36 pm

            Sorry to hear that. I would try calling again to make sure. Blackout days for that property has to be a new thing.

    August 28, 2013 at 7:28 pm

    I see they frequently run stay 3 get the 4th night free. Can you use your certificates to pay for 2, pay for 1 and get the 4th night free? Or can my husband and I each get a card and pay for our 4 night stay that way? Or will they make us switch rooms?

    • August 28, 2013 at 10:21 pm

      Stay 3 get one free requires 3 paid nights to get one night free. Best method for fair not card is book two free nights back to back with same account. They most likely will let you stay rooms

      • Jeri
        August 29, 2013 at 12:48 pm

        My husband and I got a card each and made reservations in our own names for 4 nights. No problems. We did not book them at the same time. Just called on different days.

        • August 29, 2013 at 1:44 pm

          That’s the way to do it! I’m jealous… I still need to plan a trip and stay at Fairmont hotels. They look very awesome!

            The Dallas Fairmont is not super special to look at, but I will say it was the very best service and one of the best meals my husband and I have ever had (Pyramid Grille in the hotel)! And we have stayed at some nice places! It definitely made an impression on us so that we really look forward to staying at other Fairmont properties in the future!

          • August 29, 2013 at 7:38 pm

            Awesome. Fairmont is a top tier brand. Almost like the ritz Carlton but maybe less snobby?
