Did not most prior Fairmont gift card sales take place on Fridays?

PS-are Fairmont gift cards bought at these sales event only valid at Fairmont hotels, or at other L'Accor hotels as well?
Good only at Fairmont, anywhere in the world. I've seen other brands do similar promos. I've seen Raffles gift card bonuses, but only at 10%, I think.

The spring sale has typically been on Wednesday and the fall sale on Black Friday.

Fairmont Gift Cert.

Hi,

Can you use Fairmont Gift Cert. to pay for hotels booked with this Sale....Effectively giving you a bigger discount.

Yes. You can use these certs as if they were cash. Whatever other offer you have, the gift cert savings stack on top. The only issue is if your rate includes a prepayment, you need to ask the hotel to refund your original payment to then apply the certs. They will indeed do this, but if the hotel is in a different currency than your credit card, you might lose a few percent on the FX spread between the credit card charge and refund.

In November I had many problems buying gift cards - nothing worked. Had to be resolved offline with customer service. This time, first attempt went through no problem

Success! Purchased 5 separate shopping carts this round. First one got declined by my bank, as I received a text message from the bank instantly, thinking it was fraudulent. I confirmed by text it was legit, and then retried the transaction, which then went through without any issue. The other 4 cards approved the transactions right away. Very happy again!

Yes, and unlike in the more distant past, where you could use a Promo Code OR a Gift Card, for the last couple of years, you can combine them. But do wait for a sale, as they usually have a Black Friday sale at the Fairmont Store.

Today I learned that the bonus goes to the buyer, not the recipient.

It's been a whole week, but I have not received the GCs I bought on May 4.

Call them at 1-888-242-6977. They're very helpful. It shouldn't take more than 10 minutes after purchase.

Thanks, CanadaDH! I phoned that number. She told me that they had sent them to a different email address of mine. I checked that one, where I found them in Suspect Email, sent on May 4. My bad!

Looking forward to see if the sale will proceed on Black Friday as in previous years. Did someone hear news?
