Fairmont is returning tomorrow (May 4) with its twice-annual gift card sale that can save you 16.67%. Depending on how much your upcoming stays will cost, where you’ll be staying and when they’ll be, there’s an Amex Offer that could save you even more.

If you have an upcoming paid stay at Fairmont or Sofitel properties – or award stays where you’ll have a decent amount of incidental spending – having this Amex Offer that can save you up to 20% is a nice discount.
Their gift card sale gives you a bonus gift card worth 20% of however much you spend on gift cards which effectively makes that offer a 16.67% discount. While this Amex Offer can potentially save you even more than that, it partly depends on the stars aligning for your stay.
One of the key things to be aware of with this Fairmont/Sofitel Amex Offer is that it’s only valid on stays in the US and Mexico, whereas Fairmont gift cards can be redeemed at any Fairmont property worldwide.
The most you can save with this Amex Offer is also only $100, unless you have a P2 with the same offer on one of their cards which would enable you to split a $1,000+ folio on two cards. The gift card deal on the other hand is good when buying up to $5,000 worth of gift cards, meaning you can receive up to $1,000 in bonus gift cards free.
Another possible restriction is the expiry date of the Amex Offer. With it ending on August 31, you’d need to be able to pay for your stay before that date. If paying with gift cards purchased on sale, those won’t ever expire and so there’s no time crunch to be worried about.
This Fairmont/Sofitel Amex Offer is still useful though if you have a stay costing just over $500 or you don’t want to have to fuss around with paying with gift cards when checking out.
