WILMINGTON, Del. - May 10, 2012 - Discerning travelers have a new option when it comes to luxury travel with the first ever credit card from Fairmont Hotels & Resorts®. Today, Chase Card Services, a division of JPMorgan Chase & Co. [NYSE: JPM] and Fairmont Hotels & Resorts introduced the all-new Fairmont® Visa Signature® Card, which offers cardmembers access to exclusive amenities and rewards. The Card delivers the same luxury service consistently offered by Fairmont and gives cardmembers more ways to get the most out of their stays at Fairmont destinations worldwide.
Cardmembers will be eligible to receive two complimentary night stays complete with two breakfast dining certificates at any Fairmont property worldwide, after making $1000 in purchases within the first three months of obtaining the Card. Fairmont Visa Signature cardmembers will also earn Fairmont Rewards with all of their purchases, which they can redeem for Fairmont stays worldwide while enjoying no foreign transaction fees on international purchases.
