Chase Fairmont Cards Have Now Converted To Chase Sapphire Preferred Cards – What You Need To Know/Do

Chase Fairmont cardholders should have receive a letter informing them that their card would be product changed to a Chase Sapphire Preferred on August 15th, 2017 and those product changes have now been completed. There’s a few important things to note:

  • New card will arrive in six to eight weeks and come with a new expiration date and security code (you’ll keep the same card number)
  • Cardmembers will continue to earn Premier Status through February 28, 2018 (unless they close their Fairmont account. Not your credit card).
  • You can now create referral links for the Chase Sapphire Preferred (share yours here)
  • If you earned the free Fairmont night it will arrive within 8 to 10 weeks or within six weeks of your account anniversary date (whatever comes first). Unfortunately expediting doesn’t seem to be an option can also ask for this to be expedited.

Account <1 year old. Converted regular Sapphire but only given option to convert to FU, not regular freedom.

Was able to convert to a regular Sapphire, but from here the only option I am given is to go to Freedom Unlimited.

Sent a SM to request a product change to Freedom and was turned down. Called yesterday and the agent was able to convert my card to a no-fee Sapphire. Sent another SM message today and I’m now able to convert to a Freedom Unlimited, but not a regular Freedom

I am wanting to rent a car mid September and planned on using the Fairmont/CSP for the primary rental coverage. If I have not yet received new CSP can I still use the Fairmont card until new one comes in?

Have HUCA’d and SMd multiple times to PC to a Freedom Unlimited or CSR and was told you cant product change until account is 12 months old. They even told me there is a note on the account when you call.

Fairmont card opened 1/2017, just sent SM asking to PC to CFU, got denied – see below response, only option is no-AF CS. Any advice whether to “HUCA” with a real phone call? Or can I PC to the CS and then eventually PC that to a CFU?

“We appreciate you taking time to write into us about
switching to a Chase Freedom Unlimited card.

Currently, the option to switch to the Freedom Unlimited
card is not available. As an alternative, you may apply
for a new Freedom Unlimited product. New applications are
available online at our secure website. Please visit our

When selecting the credit card that best meets your needs,
please remember that our policy no longer allows for

However, I see that you have the option to switch
to the Chase Sapphire Ultimate Rewards card that come with

I saw a Fairmont Visa Complimentary Night certificate in the Fairmont app good until July 2018 issued July 11, 2017. Must be for my spend last year. This makes three of these plus a 3rd night free, Room upgrade, and Suite upgrade.

I spent $6499 before August 14, so should get another night from Chase. I wonder can I do three nights in a suite upgrade and the other two in a room upgrade?

My $95 Fairmont Visa AF just posted this month. I haven’t used my suite upgrade or 3rd night free certificates yet. If I PC to another Freedom card and ask for a refund of the $95 AF, will I lose my Fairmont President’s Club certificates that aren’t set to expire until 2/28/18?

I tried to PC to FU twice by SM and calling but both times I was told it’s not possible since my card has been opened less than a year. I think those reporting success on converting directly to freedom or FU, have had their original fairmont card more than 1 year

Actually a DP for you… Same here that I was told multiple times that it was not possible from CSP (originally Fairmont) to anything else other than CS. I then decided to PC into CS yesterday. Today I asked twice. First I was told no options other than keeping CS and it was a long hold…. Second time I was told FU is an option and I asked for it to be rushed out to me.

I only opened Fairmont back in Jan and have not had it for over 1 year. Sneaking into chase’s core branded card is finally a success for me, ha 🙂
