Double Miles and a Discount at Fairmont Hotels
Through September 30, travelers can earn double airline miles and receive a discount of up to 25 percent for stays at participating Fairmont hotels.
The double miles are available in the following airline programs: American AAdvantage, Aeroplan, Asia Miles, JAL Mileage Bank, JetPrivilege, PhoenixMiles, Emirates, United MileagePlus, and Lufthansa Miles&More.
The discount is up to 20 percent, plus an additional five percent for members of Fairmont's President's Club who book through the Fairmont website.
Deal or No Deal
Fairmont normally awards 500 miles per stay, so the earning rate increases to 1,000 miles per stay with the bonus. Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, but probably not a difference-maker for most travelers.
The discounts, on the other hand, are significant, especially for President's Club (free to join) members.
Taken together, the two incentives make a compelling case for considering Fairmont properties in your summer travel plans.
