[Dead] Working Link for Chase Fairmont Card

Readers in the comments of the previous post found two working links for the Fairmont card. One reader applied and got approved too.

Direct Link #1

Direct Link #2

These probably won’t last. Grab them now if you are interested in the card.

The most interesting thing would be if this is a backhanded way of getting Freedom Unlimited for post-5/24 people since these might get converted to become Freedom Unlimited’s eventually. But of course we don’t know that for certain.

    Just applied and was approved. Currently at 17/24.

    • Erik says:

      Anyone know when the 2 free nights will be credited to the cardholders account? Our family is heading to Maui on on Feb 28th and would like to use the 2 free nights on this trip. I see the card in my account now and payment due date is March 7th. I will be meeting the minimum spend right away when I receive the card. My guess is that the certificates will post after March 7th due date but would love to be wrong. Anyone know for sure??

  2. Shirley says:

    What’s the promotion and spending requirements ?

  3. sirtheta says:

    The two links are the same (SPID is the only parameter that matters).

    The other two links I have from the Chase dump are FJYL and FLDK, both of which display an “Offer Unavailable” page (and a recently designed one at that).

    Wouldn’t expect this to last very long, indeed.

    • prussiablue says:

      I applied using FJYL this morning and it was down a few hours later. Don’t think this last one will last much longer.

  4. joe says:

    can you ask to convert a chase sapphire to a regular freedom? (if you already have a regular freedom?)

  5. Kurt says:

    Link #1 appears to now be dead, but used #2 and approved. WAYYYYY over 5/24. Submitted another for my spouse and went pending.

  6. David says:

    was approved this morning from a different link from reddit. this was 9/24. already have Freedom unlimited

  7. Capcalhoon says:

    Fiancée just used second link, auto approved and she is way over 5/24. I used previous link from this morning before it died and had to call in and move credit around, I am at 20/24

    • E Dantes says:

      Capcalhoon: When you called in, did they know about cards you had got recently outside of Chase, or was it only about money tied up in Chase cards? Thanks for the info here.

  8. Cliff says:

    Just used link #2. Immediate approval.

  9. Mike says:

    So can we be sure these limks have 2 free nights attached? Dont see any mention. Thx

    • Joel says:

      Yup, under the image of the card on the first application page, it says “2 Complimentary Nights”.

      BTW, approved via the 1st link.

  10. Ivan X says:

    I have gone to pending on my last several Chase apps and only approved after moving credit. This one I was instant approved and got a huge credit line (which is good for the next time they ask me to move credit).

  11. Jeremy says:

    Can’t see the spending requirement, got message to call….what’s the spend?

  12. Jeremy says:

    Got a weird message on second app that said the information you submitted has been recieved….didn’t get an answer, did it go through?

  13. Curmudgeon says:

    Woo! Instant approval. Not bad since I’m 23/24 (22 were in 2016). Let’s hope that if Chase force converts these accounts down the road we get a chance to chose the product – I’d like a Freedom card but have no chance of getting it normally until mid-2018.

    Once again DoC comes through. Thanks!

  14. Mark says:

    Used link 2. Instant 5k. 2nd chase card in under 30 days. I’m at 37/24

  15. Abey says:

    Is this card churnable
    Or one bonus per 24 months?

  16. Susan says:

    Just used Link #1 and immediate approval. Currently at 12/24!

  17. travelmom says:

    Just used link #1 for me, and link #2 for spouse. Both went pending, we are both WAY over 5/24.

  18. E Dantes says:

    Too bad – got a decision pending. Was hoping to get approved since some of you at 23/24, 17/24 got it. I guess there’s a limit!

    Maybe I’ll get lucky on further review…any reason for hope?

  19. Jonathan says:

    Applied for wifey and I, both pending. Crossing fingers. Thanks for the good stuff doc, keep it coming.

  20. Steve says:

    Used the link this morning. Had to call in but was instantly approved for a large CL.

  21. J T says:

    Spouse’s app went “30 day” pending, but she’s just at 5/24 including the a pending app for CSR the day before. I’m way over 5/24 and my app is pending with a request to call a particular phone number.

    Opinions on letting it ride out w/out calling or call in and risk decline due to 5/24? I have plenty of CL with Chase to move around if necessary, but I wonder about a hard decline when a live body actually reviews the app in this situation.

    • Michael says:

      Let it ride. I got 30 day letter notice and wife got call in notice last night. Both accounts open and in chase account this morning with no action from us.

      Data point. We are both WELL over 5/24 and I was actually just declined for the IHG prior to applying.

    • Nick says:

      I’d probably wait out your wife’s situation given the pending CSR app just to be safe, but if your application went to the “30 day” pending, you should be good. Myself and a half-dozen of my friends (all over 5/24) applied today and all got the “30 day” pending, called in, and just either had to move some credit around or verify some info, and were all approved.

      • Will says:

        What is the number? Got the 30 day message, but I did not notice the number to call.

        • Michael says:

          My 30 day message didn’t have a phone number. It just told me that I would receive a letter in the mail with a decision, but I was auto approved overnight.

          My wife got the call in to verify your info message, but I don’t have the number handy. I never had to reference it, as she was auto approved overnight too.

    • J T says:

      Well, I sat on my hands for a week and having received nothing in the mail, I called in on 1/19. Couple verification questions, moved credit from another Chase card and approved.

      Wife’s situation was different: received mail notice that she was denied for CSR. This was a bit of a long shot for the 100k bonus and she’s still just over 5/24 as it turns out. Next day came the denial for Fairmont due to “too many recent applications”. Today she was approved on recon call, in part by arguing that a 5/24 denial shouldn’t have had any bearing on a card that (until its recent application shutdown) was exempt from that rule, regardless of how close the apps were. Approved after CL moved from another card, which she did not offer (but would have had they not asked).

  22. Michael says:

    Does anyone know the promotion and spend requirements for these free nights? I checked the terms on the linked site but it doesn’t specify.

  23. Randy says:

    Just applied for me and my wife using link #2. Both instant approvals. We are both WAY over 5/24. Pow!

  24. Julie says:

    Instant approval. Way over 5/24

  25. Darv says:

    Shoot, we are headed to Europe June 2018 but as I understand it, these certificates won’t be valid then. Anybody suggest otherwise? Was going to have both myself and wife apply for these around July 1. We’re looking for four nights in maybe South France as one leg. Is Hyatt good alternative? We’re both way over 5/24.

    • Michael says:

      Why wont it be valid? They expire within one year and just need to be used before then. Cant you just wait 11 mo’s and book the room for June 2018?

      Everything I read just says they need to be REDEEMED within the year, not that the stay actually needs to happen within the year.

  26. Natasha says:

    10/24 and denied for csp yesterday.. instant approval with a 31k credit limit. Thanks doc..

  27. John says:

    Me 20/24, 2 in past 2 weeks. Total 8 Chase cards, incl biz. Wife 10/24, 3 in past 2 weeks, total 3 Chase cards. Ficos 800+. Apps pending. Called recon same day. Brief questions, wife had to move credit. Not grilled on number of cards or recent apps. Both approved.

  28. Aurelia says:

    Don’t call. You might get grilled by a credit analyst. Wait it out.

  29. Aurelia says:

    Yipe I just now swallowed my gum

  30. Captain Obvious says:

    After you get your free stays, before you close the card, don’t forget to use the 3000 points you get from the min spend to buy yourself a 25.00 gift card from the rewards marketplace.

    The list of options is pretty slim pickin’s, but Amazon is a good option.

  31. Kris says:

    Too many cards opened up with Chase, they had to spread my CL from other cards.. 93K lines in credit

  32. Et tu says:

    Links are all taken down as of 8am on 1/17/2017. No more working application links available

  33. Joey P says:

    Anyone know of any remaining working links? Both are dead already, I waited like an idiot until this morning…

  34. Joey P says:

    Is there any working links left that anyone knows of? Waited too long to apply like an idiot and they are dead now. I appreciate it if anyone comes across any!

  35. Rubber City Rebel says:

    I am sad !!!

    I too waited too long… 🙁

    Really wish I applied when I first heard of the death of this card….

    If anyone finds anyway to still get this card I would love you forever! 🙂

  36. Et tu says:

    Both Chase and Fairmont have stated that the card is discontinued for new applicants. Chase has taken down all links. There is nothing further to apply for, because it is no longer available.

  37. Et tu says:

    No more links exist. Talked to Chase and fairmont directly and they have already stated that they are accepting no more applications for this card.

  38. rekha says:

    any update. i just received the card but no mention of promotion.

  39. pier11 says:

    Initially got 30 days response after application and later on the phone automated check consistently.
    Applied on the date this post was published. Was way over 5/25.
    Spotted the card in my online login. Success. Canada here I come :))
    Thanks DoC.

  40. Andrew says:

    Initially got 30 days response after application and was denied for being over 5/24 based on letter. Confirmed with a chase reccon line. No ability to reconsider.

  41. creditbuilder says:

    I applied in the morning on January 15, status line has been giving me the 2-weeks message ever since. Pretty sure this will be approved but it’s interesting that it’s taking so long.

  42. Rekha says:

    Any one verified with chase about promotion?

    • Andrew says:

      I messaged Chase about this the other day. They confirmed the offer was attached to the account. See message below:

      “Here is the offer that is on your account:

      Earn 2 Complimentary Nights after you make $3,000 in
      purchases within your first 3 months of account opening.
      Earn 1 Complimentary Night each anniversary year that
      you make $12,000 in purchases with your card.”

      Is there any other bonus attached? Something like dining credit or upgrade credit? I just can’t remember what was listed on the application page.


      • Genise says:

        “Is there any other bonus attached? Something like dining credit or upgrade credit? I just can’t remember what was listed on the application page.”

        Would like to know that as well !

  43. Matthew says:

    Approved today. Also applied for IHG at the same time, but it showed up yesterday w/ smaller CL. I thought I was going to be denied, so I applied for CSP w/ pre-approval on 1/28 – went 7/10 day pending.

  44. benj says:

    wife and i both applied on 1/13/17. both just approved finally today 2/2/17. Did not call chase at anytime.

  45. TravellerAtoZ says:

    How soon do the free nights post after hitting $3,000? Are the free nights valid for 12 months starting the day they appear in my account?
