You still get FHR and FPC Platinum benefits with use of the voucher which is different from the FPC free night certs.

Will use it for our stay in Maui for which we were using a suite upgrade cert. The way it looks, it will have a value of about $600USD for that particular stay. It will get me to sway a few other nights away from a competing property that we were going to visit, however, so they'll still come out ahead!
Last edition of the French Centurion magazine states that French Cent cardholders are eligible for a free night at a Raffles property until Aug, 31st. It seems that it applies to all French Centurion card holders.

I received this too...

Be aware that not all Fairmonts are participating. I was going to use it in Singapore but they are not included in the offer. I don't know who else is or isn't participating.

I used it at the Plaza in NY. Nice stay, wouldn't pay to stay there however. Received $100 food credit, checked in at midday, out at 4pm next day, I was going to NY anyway so a very useful one for me

-20,000 bonus miles
-Upgrade Certificates
-Skyclub passes


I was unsure if everyone knew about this secret amenity. Worth at least 200 or whatever a free medallion status is worth. It would be a shame to not take advantage of this. I know I did not my first year. But now I get it on my main card and supp cards.
Anything for us Canadian Cents as Delta Gold?

Today, I got an email for USD500 resort credit for ARIA Las Vegas for minimum 1 night stay. I think some US members got this already. But as a Canadian member, this is the first time I received this offer.

Only valid between May 22 and Aug 31, 2012.

Not a big fan of Vegas. I think I'm going to pass on this one.

Yeah, we got a deal that was similar: special nightly rate at Aria (I think it was ~$150) and $500 resort credit. So we used the $500 to pay for the room itself AND spa treatments. :-) Incidentally, having been to a few spas in Vegas, I found the Aria to be one of the best... I'd go back in a minute.

Thanks for sharing this.

Extensive discussion in this thread, starting at post 162:

It does seem to be established that this offer is not intended for USA cardholders.

Which is odd, since we're based in L.A. and definitely received (and redeemed) the offer.

Indeed there are a few USA members reporting success, but now American Express and the hotel are taking the position that the USA offer has expired.

Planning on quitting my ...... banker operations job and hiding out for the rest of the year... came across a few hotel offers, which, you have to call the Centurion line to redeem.. Transparency is the worst part about centurion as you are never fully in the know of all offers available. Always have to phone up and ask. i absolutely loathe that. there's no reason they cant put everything on the website. Anyway on to the offers:


BANYAN TREE + ANGSANA 1 COMP NIGHT FOR EVERY PAID NIGHT

- They've run this promo every year for the past three, four years

- Comped night for every paid night

- can roll over (i.e. stay 6 pay 3)

- applicable to all Banyan and Angsana Resorts

- Free breakfast on paid nights only (Nickel and dime much??)

- If booking resort in Thailand, comp 90 min massage for 2nd person after 1st person pays

This offer I like... replaces the whittling away of the previous Mandarin Oriental Benefits quite well. just going to copy and paste the .pdf I got from Amex.

Thanks for posting this. We're planning a long weekend in London this autumn (after the Olympics crowds clear out) and this would suit the bill. Is there a Promo code that one can use on the hotel website to check availability and rates?

I find it really frustrating that these offers are not published either via email or on the website. I've just scoured the Centurion website and cannot find this.

Thank goodness for FT, but it's really unfortunate that the offers aren't easily found via AmEx channels.
