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.

I think it was, that and a CSR. As I have two Freedoms, I went with the FU.

Will the product change from the fairmont card to the chase sapphire preferred provide the 50k signup bonus assuming I haven’t received the 50k onus in last 24 months?

I called Chase a few days ago to see if I could get my free night expedited as would like to use it at the San Fransisco Fairmont at the end of this month and was told that they could not as it is automatically generated by their system. Unfortunately for me there is a good chance that my free night will not be used by the expiration date is not released soon.

Mine was deposited yesterday in my Fairmont account. It’s labled “3rd night”

SP

That’s a different certificate, 3rd night free.

You are correct. Thanks for the clarification.

When will the annual fees on the converted CSPs become due? Will it just be on the anniversary date of your Fairmont card opening?

No need to PC to a Sapphire first, I product changed my Fairmont that become a CSP to a Chase Freedom yesterday

NinjaX

nice. thank you for the DP.

I dig the idea, and the Sapphire is an option for me to PC to. But what is missing for me is the timeline.

If I PC from the CSP to the CS, how long am I locked into the CS before I can change to the CSR. And then what are the chances they will pull another, “it is not a PC option” later?

Michael

Wife converted to a CS after like 30 minutes of arguing with the guy.

He swore up and down there was no such thing as a NAF CS, until eventually she called me to get on the line and work it out.

Also offers a CFU and Slate, but no option for Freedom.

What do you mean by this:

“Cardmembers will continue to earn Premier Status through February 28, 2018 (unless they close their Fairmont account).”

I closed my Chase Fairmont card account upon learning of the changes. Do you expect I will lose my Premier status before 2/28/18?

chris

i believe he means if you close your fairmont president’s club account.

Can I still earned the 50k sign up bonus with the csp with the product change assuming I haven’t received the 50k bonus in last 24 months?

Charlie

No. See above.

When would the Annual fee hit for the CSP? At our one year mark?

Also, do we think product changing will have an effect on the extra free night posting?

Raj

I have the same 2 questions

Will the walmart 10% work on this new converted card even if I use the same number from Chase pay?

Derek

Received the 10x UR points for walmart.com using converted CSP card with chase pay (same number as Fairmont). Shows as pending 1x + 9x UR bonus points. No sign-up bonus for conversion but almost like a consolation prize.

James

How soon after PC’ing to Freedom Unlimited do you start earning under the 1.5x UR terms? Just PC’ed today (8/16) and have a couple purchases coming up, but could delay them if necessary. Non-bonus spend, so would prefer FU’s 1.5x instead of CSP’s 1x.
