Chase Fairmont Card No Longer Accepting New Applications
Update: Working links can be found here.
We’ve confirmed with Chase (officially) that they are no longer accepting new applications on the Chase Fairmont card. This is likely due to the fact that AccorHotels acquired the Fairmont brand in December of 2015. AccorHotels shockingly does not have a co-branded card in the United States currently.
There was still a working application link, but that seems to have been removed now. As always, feel fee to share any in the comments.
This still leaves many questions unanswered:
- What will happen to existing cardholders? My suspicious is that at some stage they will be converted to a Chase branded card. The last Chase card to have a forced product change was the Zappos card and that was converted into Chase Freedom Unlimited.
- What will happen to those with free night certificates? My suspicious is that these will continue to be valid until their expiry date.
There were some rumors of this card disappearing, but nothing I was able to confirm with my sources and the card has disappeared from the home page before so I didn’t feel comfortable in posting. In hindsight that was a mistake as readers lost the opportunity to sign up for this card before applications were pulled – for that I apologize!
I’m still perplexed on why AccorHotels does not operate a co-branded credit card in the United States. They must be leaving significant revenue behind by not offering such a card and I’m sure all the major credit card issuers would be eager to add that brand to their portfolio.
