150 Canada - 3rd night free certificate (targetted)

Speaking of Canada, I went to look at my certificates that are left in the Fairmont app. Seems like they added another free night IN CANADA to my certificates!!!!!

Good from July 1 - Nov 30th. For Canada's 150 year anniversary.

Too bad Canada gets cold quick. But if you go in the fall, it could be really nice, especially if you have an extra free night after August 14th. Just saying....

You didn't get one?? Figured every Premier member got one ... I had looked at this a couple days ago, and it wasn't there. So this is new.

Did you get a free night cert? Or a 3rd night free? I got the latter;
Fairmont Presidentís Club Certificates
*Canada 150 - 3rd Night Free

but would much rather have the former.

Yes. Sorry, I didn't clarify that... I don't normally stay only one night anywhere (except airports),

here's what I see:

When I went to Barbados last month, I used the 3rd night free, my two free certificates for getting the card, and and paid for another 4 nights; it was a deal. Loved the Barbados Fairmont.

Really will miss this card. And staying at Fairmonts probably. These certificates made it affordable.

Canada 150 Third night free Cert

I discovered this afternoon Fairmont added a Canada 150 Third night free certificate to my account.

Thank you Fairmont.

Happy Anniversary Canada.

I look forward to using the cert.

I also got a Canada 150 B2G1! I'm Premier only via the Chase Visa. Now I have to phone to make sure that Banff Springs grabs this one for my August stay instead of the one expiring Feb. 2018.

I got one, too. Is it valid only at Fairmonts in Canada, or worldwide?

I always wonder what kind of logic (if any) is applied when awarding additional certs.

I'm not sure why Premier members who only have status from the Chase CC would qualify while Platinum members don't, but I'm sure the marketing folks are smarter than I am.

I'm booking the Singapore property and just realized that they added the CANADA 150 3rd free night cert into my account! Can this be used worldwide or just in Canadian properties?

I read in earlier messages on this thread that it's for use in Canada only but I can't find that stipulation.

Are you saying it worked for 3rd night in Singapore? That's a bit odd. How'd you do that? Call in?

I am a US-based FPC Plat and did not receive this third night free coupon.
I did receive the "2016 Holiday Gift - 3rd Night Free" coupon last December.
I have not stayed in a Canadian Fairmont since early 2016.

Yes and yes. Applied to Fairmont SIN by calling in.
