Black Friday Deals – Non-Airfare Edition – Fairmont, Marriott/Ebates, and Silvercar

Following up on this morning’s article about Black Friday/Cyber Week airfare deals, we have a few more travel-related Black Friday deals for you here. There are 2 hotel deals and 1 car rental deal, from:

  • Fairmont Hotels & Resorts (gift card bonus promotion)
  • Marriott-family hotels (through the Ebates shopping portal only)
  • Silvercar (promo discount code)

We’ll summarize the deals below. We don’t have time to analyze each of them, but we want you to know about the deals so you can check them out and see how they fit into your plans!

Hotel Deals

Fairmont (gift card bonus promotion)

  • Purchase e-gift cards from Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, and receive a bonus e-gift card (eGC) worth an additional 20% on your purchase.
    • For example, if you purchase a $500 eGC, you’ll get a $100 bonus eGC for a total of $600
    • This is effectively a 16.7% discount at Fairmont
  • We don’t have a link to the actual sale site yet
  • Link: Fairmont eGC Promotion full rules and regulations
  • Sale is available for only 3 hours on Friday, November 23
    • 2:00 pm until 5:00 pm Eastern time
  • Maximum bonus eGC value is $1,000
  • This should show up as a sale directly from Fairmont, so use a card that gives you a good bonus on hotels, like the Chase Sapphire Reserve (3x Chase UR points) or the Citi Prestige card (3x Citi ThankYou Points)
