Update: 6/16/15:
So I smed chase again and got the same response, denying to match to 140k. I then called Chase and got a very nice rep who tried to match it for me but was unsuccessful. It said in her system that they were only matching to 140k credit cards that were applied before April 30th. I applied May 14th. She then gave me 5k Ritz points as a courtesy and told me to try to call Ritz Rewards and ask them to replace my 2 free nights with the equivalent amount of points (probably not 140k). I did just that and the Ritz rep said she cannot do that. Blah blah.....
This really sucks <img src="http://s3.amazonaws.com/tapatalk-emoji/emoji35.png" />

Update: 3/23/15: Many recent reports of successful match to 140k offer via SM
Updated link: https://creditcards.chase.com/credit-cards/ritz-carlton-card.aspx
Standard offer is for 2 free nights at Ritz Cat 1-4 which is not too bad either.

Update 2/9/15: DEAD     
current offer  140k bonus points +$300 airline credit annual fee 395 not waived
link https://www.theritzcarltonrewardscard.com/offer140k

To get $300 airline credit call 1-855-896-2222
don't buy gift cards from Chase affiliated airlines (United, SW..)
As Chase may be able to see what you purchased

JetBlue seat upgrades and delta seat upgrades worked for me.
Airline GC are very YMMV as there are reports of chase asking for receipts.
(Seat upgrades are officially covered in the T & C.)

Ritz has free AU's.
Have had no luck with pp for Ritz au's. I've ordered it a bunch of times and called and was told it was coming, yet no pp's ever came for my 2 au's.

How long did it take from when you called for them to extend them?

I called a couple weeks ago and it took a matter of minutes to extend it. They had no issue extending it.

Here is the # I used:

Is your Ritz CC still open?


Has anyone got their Ritz nights extend without an open CC?

CARD act only protects against first year, consider yourself lucky to not been charged it before, it's pretty YMMV for year 2 and 3, although many DP suggest year 3 you'll likely be charged
In year 1 is the refund automatic when Cl is lowered?

How long afterward?
Generally within 2-3 days the annual fee refund will post.
