Fairmont is having today their Mother’s Day promotion for buying e-gift cards with 20% bonus. The offer is valid for purchases made today only (May 9, 2018,) between 2PM – 5PM EDT.
The maximum bonus under this offer is $1,000 and it is reached when one buys $5,000 worth of e-gift cards ($6,000 with the bonus included). You can choose to load them either in USD or CAD.
You can access Fairmont’s web page for buying gift cards here.
If you are planning to use the e-gift cards in Canada, you should load them in CAD. Otherwise, I would buy them in USD.
This is essentially 16.67% discount off of Fairmont stays that you pay using these gift cards. If the charge currency is other than USD or CAD, there is likely a small currency conversion fee.
If you have non-prepaid Fairmont stays coming up, this is a great way to save an additional 17% or you can always use these for incidentals.
Fairmont had the discount capped at 15% during the previous two sales. I guess that the take wasn’t great and they decided to run again with 20% bonus.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
