There's not much of a market for them, might make more sense to go for a Hyatt, those nights go for $200-250 each.
Title: Re: Ritz Carlton CC with $395 fee waived -$200 airline reimbursement + lounges +70k
Post by: rcarentals on June 15, 2012, 10:33:58 AM
the way i see this deal

70k points = $2-400 at a hotel
$200 airline fee creditx2 1 for 2012+2013 +$400
lounge access
hotel extra's credit $100

so it gets you about 900$ plus lounge access (400?)
hyatt gives you 2 nights that could be worth from 150-2000, but its ust 2 nights and only on a hotel. here your getting 400 cash 2 nights, (or one for a higher quality hotel) 100$ extra for hotel spending + lounge entrance no annual fee for first year!

It will get you 3 1/2 nights at Ritz Herzliya which is a pretty good value given the rate of $475 a night especially if you transfer 20k UR you get 5 nights=$2375 for a credit pull and $395

136k Marriot would get you 60k United, I would think it would be the same for Ritz.

I went out on the limb and bought a 300 dollar United Gift certificate. I called in to get my refund and the CSR bleated out what I guess he should not have said. He said, he could see that that the 300 dollar tx I had was an eGiftCard! He could see it on his end! I guess United, at least, are sending more than basic level 1 tx data to Chase - such is life. This will not work!

I can't imagine chase not allowing the use of the $300 airline fee credit for airline gift cards. They seem to be processing these requests at their own discretion and every time I call them using the designated number from the card, their only concern is how to make my day a better one. After I thank them for asking how I am doing, they just ask for the date and amount and I am good to go. I have gotten refunded on actual airline ticket purchases as well as many other creative items, without hesitation.

Clearly this whole process is hit and miss YMMV. In the end, there are a few VERY CLEAR facts - that after reading here, and other forums stand true:

1) Most of anything that is travel related and not upgrade related from UA will be denied, as they get level 3 data
2) I have seen/read about AA being very good for award taxes and even flights - someone even got away with a 300 GC on AA! Man that is great! I tried a 300 UA GC and they saw it was a GC
3) Other airlines as well, delta, AS, SW, and others sem to be OK with award taxes and GC

With all this said, it is still up to the SM or CSR on the phone - the game is VERY YMMV

No offense but since you essentially can get $600 in airline credit (which can be easily be sold to offset the fee)the first year I have a hard time understanding the lack of affordability.

Firstly, I do not think I can get the $300 from 2014, I asked them to expedite it but they said I will have to call back in a few days, after they get more info from Ritz. Secondly, $600 in airline certificates ($500 resale value) can takes months to sell. Thirdly, I do not even know if Chase will reimburse GCs. Fourth, $500 is better than $100.

Standard case with co-brand cards.

Call back in 2 days, and you'll be able to get it expidited and have it early next week. That should leave you with 10 days to work.

I was instantly approved on Thursday morning. But because it's a co-brand my account is still not set up. I would recommend anyone applying for this card to first set up a ritz Carlton rewards account and then apply using that account #.
+1 that's goes with all non chase related benefit cards if you want the process to go faster.

You can get the card number if the account is showing online.

If you click to send a new secure message and select an inquiry about a credit card it gives you a dropdown with the cards. Right click on the dropdown and click "Inspect Element" (at least in Chrome) and it will show you the full account number in the <option> tag.

Its a fraud indicator. It is supposed to be taken into consideration together with other indicators such as AVS.

Most merchants do require a CSC match, but some don't.

Specifically for Visa, a merchant can even send a code which says that the CVV2 is illegible on the card. Regardless, if a transaction is approved, even if the CVV2 comes back as "No Match", the merchant is protected from fraud chargebacks.

I called while it was pending and was told to call back later. I just called after it posted and said they were seat assignment fees and got the $300 credit! I'm hoping it posts in 2014 so I can get another in 2015. I will post again as soon as the credit posts.

Alright it must have just felt like 10 minutes, I just looked at my phone and the whole call (including talking to the rep) was 4 minutes, and I spoke to the rep for about 2 mins. It was certainly the easiest phone call I've had.

The first time I called, she asked me what the charge was for and checked her list to make sure it was an "acceptable charge." This one just asked for the date and she saw the vendor and just was confirming the amount, told me that I'd used $200 of my $300 and that I had $100 left (in case I couldn't subtract $200 from $300, but could still afford a card with a $395 AF).

I just got my $300 credit after calling in on Sunday for my pggm. If you're refunds and charges are posting the same day I would advise doing the united PGgM or attempting a southwest one.( book 6 passengers on oneway from mex-San Antonio for around 30,000 points and 350$. Then you don't have to worry about refunds getting in the way.

Booked flights on Jet Blue and book seat upgrades totaling $315 as well. Called and ask them to credit me the $300 for incidental charges. She said she would have to wait until the charge went out of pending status and properly posted. She asked how much the incidentals were for and advised $315. She said that Jet Blue doesn't breakdown the incidentals from the airfare but that she would make a notation on my record and personally make sure the credit is issued once the charge posted. Will keep you posted.....

Bad news for SW gc.... They caught up!

I was just told (both times of HUCA) that my $75 charges were for gift cards! It worked fine till last night and I got my first $75 reimbursed but seems like they've had a system update today.
They said the gc transactions starts with 5260xxxxxxx on the account and that Chase has been having some confusions since the past few days. Now the SW charges clearly show as gc.

Already out of time for 2014 for any other experiments ... oh well!

PGGM takes $300 of your bill vs. AA card gives you a free $300 gift card. so the PGGM Should always be a better option, becaus if you need an AA gift card you can go buy one with that credit from the PGGM

Ty :) Ended up buying gift cards, and they said I can reimbursed for it, so I guess it's not showing up as a gift card. The person I spoke with said that even though my purchase was made in 2014, since it won't post until 2015, it will not count as a 2014 purchase. Hope it's ymmv and I'll try again tomorrow....

I was told the same thing, that a credit posted in 2015 for a 2014 charge will count towards 2015. can anyone confirm one way or another?

i spoke to a rep earlier who told me that because it was spent in 2014 I would get credited for 2014 I asked multiple times same rep and they confirmed it, I don't know why it has anything to do with miles varying...?

I just called to have them refund the purchase of a $100 AA gift card (I told him it was Club Passes), and the rep wanted me to provide some sort of proof that it was an incidental, he said I could either provide a receipt or he could contact the airline. Obviously I don't want him to contact AA. I plan to call back later and hope the next rep doesn't give me any trouble.  If not I'll try to SM Chase.

Anyone else experience something like this?

@rng I successfully did a delta pggm and got my $300 credit. I would advise booking a delta flight shortly after midnight and buying EC seats. Then you have almost 48 hours to cancel. As soon as the EC charge posts, call chase for a refund. You should have no problem "beating" the delta refund. Alternatively, book a refundable JetBlue ticket for more than $300. Runnergirl was told by a chase rep that they can't tell what JetBlue charges are for.

With this card, I pay $395 AF in first month but I get 140K marriot or Ritz points that is good for  6 nights at mid category marriot hotels AND If I buy $300 worth of airline GCs I get $300 credit? AF comes to about $95 after the $300 credit?

I can sell the  $300 airline GC for  about $250 to GC sites?

You are saying I get another $300 credit in early 2016 and don't have to pay $395 AF?

Thanks for your time !

I just called back after SMing with no response and the rep said she needed to confirm with AA that the purchase was in fact club passes and that they would call me back after they confirmed and refund the purchase. I think I might be screwed since it was not actually club passes. If this is a new rule on Chase's part I think a lot of people are gonna be screwed.

Anyone know if the airline fees which are being reimbursed count towards the spending requirement? The reimbursements are posted as "Statement Credit" and are "adjustmnets"not sales or refunds which leads me to believe that they would count but then again I really don't end up $300 (or $600) short on my spend.

I'm assuming they notated it in my account as well that my 3rd $100 GC was an ineligible purchase. At least I got by with the other $200. I just need to figure out what to do for my 2015 $300.

Active link found on blog 12/16 for 140K offer: https://www.theritzcarltonrewardscard.com/offer140k
Many have applied through this link only to find the application was assigned to a different promo for 2 free nights instead of points. Calling JP Morgan Chase CS has indicated they are aware of this issue and CSRs are expecting the 140k points to be honored but no one in this situation has actually received the 140k points as of Dec 28, 2014.

Idk if the Loungeclub comes automatically or not. When I asked about it, the rep made it sound like it's something you have to request.
With iNk you only get 2 passes. (Though each AU also gets so I made 5 AU and 5 more loungeclubs 8)
With the ritz card you get unlimited visits until the card expires.
I didn't go to the Thai Lounge.

why in the world you guys using UA GC/GR for the bonus its bean known that UA and CHASE have 3D communication and UA will give chase more info then any other airline keep in mind chase credits are done manually so thy can (if thy want) look into the transaction and either see what its for or ask for more info

Airline GC have both successful and unsuccessful reports.
Nobody who did a pggm properly was unsuccessful.

Book a delta nonrefundable flight shortly after midnight.
Buy the EC seats with your ritz card shortly after. Cancel the flight 45 hours later. You should have a big window of time that the EC charges posted but not the refund. Call chase and say you spent $300 on seat upgrades.

Am I missing something? I never did a ppgm yet, why after midnight? Why cancel after 45 hours?
What's the rush?
And when do you call chase?

Just as an FYI, this morning I also got my 2015, $300 credit for taxes I paid for on Iberia. I didn't say they were for taxes when she asked my - I said incidentials. She responded, no problem you should see the credit appear in on your statement within 2 business days. So, in less than 3 weeks I received $600 worth of credit from this card and as soon as my statement clses i will also have 140K points  8)

makes no difference. Why do you need to confirm? Did you not sign up through the standard link or are you referring to the possibility of only getting 2 nights?

I signed up thru the 140k link but saw many reports of ppl being given 2 nights instead of 140k points. Not interested in 2 nights I want the points.

I don't think there is a concern, I think those who got 2 nights is because they used a different link (the standard chase link) which only offers 2 nights.
But if you used the 140k offer I believe you should be good.

I met the spend before the first statement closed and I only realized after they gave me the nights instead of the points and i changed it but it wont post they said until after next statement closes which will be on February 8th only.
The problem is that I have a ritz stay that I was hoping to use the points way before feb 8th, is there any solution that any of the bright people here can suggest for me?

Much appreciated!

Change ur closing date.
They might tell you ur not allowed but fight it tooth and nail explain them why.
Emphasize that you don't mind the due date to stay the same you just want to move the closing date.

It's very easy to change the closing date, no need to fight. Here's how you do it: they officially will only change the payment due date and the payment due date is always 3 days before the statement closing date. So for example, if you want the closing date to be on the 15th of the month, ask them to make the due date the 12th and your closing date will be changed automatically to the 15th.

Usually ur due date it only changed for the next month that's chase's rule, for instance if your next due date is on the 8th and you'll change now then ur coming due date will stay the 8th and they'll only change the one after this.
Unless you "fight tooth and nail"

I've changed many due dates with chase and they all took affect immediately. Even if the rep said it won't take affect until next statement, which I've been told many times, it's just another typical case of DROPR.

So I don't understand  the difference between Ritz Carlton awards and Marriott rewards. I signed up for Marriott rewards b4 Ritz and got some points for stays, now I realized I can log into Ritz awards with my Marriott acct. So when I applied for the Ritz card I put in my Marriott rewards number since they r apparently the same?

anyway, I wanna do the flight + 7 hotel night stay as the miles professor talks about:

http://themilesprofessor.com/2014/08/21/ritz-carlton-140k-offer-marriott/

So I am confused. I had 18k Marriott points and now I just signed up for Ritz 140k with my Marriott number - so is the 140k being depositied into my Marriott act but if I want to book the points plus miles thing with Ritz (even tho its Marriott properties?!?) I need to switch my acct to Ritz??

Airline GC have both successful and unsuccessful reports.
Nobody who did a pggm properly was unsuccessful.

Book a delta nonrefundable flight shortly after midnight.
Buy the EC seats with your ritz card shortly after. Cancel the flight 45 hours later. You should have a big window of time that the EC charges posted but not the refund. Call chase and say you spent $300 on seat upgrades.
Who don't you book the EC together when you book the ticket?
Do you use a separate CC to buy the actual ticket?

Well I booked an award ticket on united from a non- elite account, NYC- BOS , was charged $75 close-in fee, also added economy plus for $29. Then booked return BOS-NYC the same way. The next day I canceled (next calendar day but within 24 hrs). Now here's the thing; the booking charge cleared on my cc a few days later but before the refund cleared on account,called JP Morgan ,got refunded $75+29 per ticket,and next day the refund cleared. Then I did it again. That was in December, and I repeated it again in Jan. Got $600 for paying $395. Thanks JP Morgan!!! Oh and for 140k + gold status of course

I don't know about lounge, though my 2 cents says it stays active for that year.
But when it comes to statutes I believe u stay with them because iirc by Marriott they do and there one and the same.

Because it was suggested earlier on DDF that united gives level 3 data because of their partnership with chase. Idk if true or not. But SW is also a partner with chase.

As for the second part of your post-
Seems your a real chasid.
I was wrong that he never mentioned the Marriott card.
Here's you're rebbe lying:
His quote from earlier today:Like I said, I don't follow the Marriott program at all and I write about what I know.
Does 140K Marriott really become 70K UA?
Seems like he has plenty knowledge marriott and ritz and he even says he plans on checking them out in the comments.

For those of you that have the companion pass, it can be matched to Alaskan MVP 75k.
From there it can be matched to other airlines as well. Pretty awesome to get top tier status without any paid flights or BIS miles!

The point is with Chase if you get approved you get the bonus. Now depending on the type of card you may need to change the FFN but the point is the same and I would've worded it as well like EmKay.

 I would have applied for this months ago  if I was not too worried about the $395 fee and the idea of AA GC didn't sound convincing to me.

Will go for it today and I also checked Citi's pre selected offers and found a 50K thank you premier bonus for $3k spend in 3 months, will also go for that.

I just hope they don't deny me the bonus since I had this card almost 2 yrs ago.

It's not fraud, it's just a different arm of Chase. The Ritz card is issued by J.P. Morgan, not Chase. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

I have had similar incident like this with Chase. It was 3 yrs ago, when I applied for Ink bold, I called RECON the guy told me I need to speak to someone else first and that agent where I was transferred to wanted to verify that it was me. Asked me to tell her  the amounts of charges on my other card and date and things like that. I logged on and told her everything and got approved.

Last month, when I called Chase for my wife's BA card for retention offer, the guy told me you have to talk to someone else first because there is a blockage or something on this card. I was transferred to Fraud dept or something and that agent asked me if I recognize the charges on this card. I said yes, than transferred back to the customer service agent.


BTW, I also applied for the City TY premier. got approved with 2 mins call to RECON. Transferred CL since I already have 6 Citi cards. 50K points after 3k spend. Had this card 2 yrs ago.

How is the odds of approval on this? Like any chase cards?

If I get approved tomorrow, I would like to apply for my wife for   140K points and we will have 280K marriot points we can use in future.

Even if you cancel the card, the points will still stay right?

Probably, do you need 130k points? BTW, what are 140k Ritz points worth for resale? Come to think of it, this card is such a good deal! Rt to Europe or Asia  in first or business plus 7 nights in a good hotel plus $1200 spending money all for just two credit cards.
I think no one buys them.

https://www.marriott.com/rewards/usepoints/morepack.mi this is the best value of Marriott points 132k UA miles+7 nights  category  1-5  for 270k Marriott
I  am still confused over this!You transfer or  exchange marriot points for  UA miles & free nights? It is  a flight & hotel stay voucher you get in exchange for your 140K Marriot points you get from this card? The voucher expires if not used within certain date? :-[

I'm not sure what you mean by expiration date. You get the miles and they expire like all UA miles. As far as the hotel stay, I assume you book the nights with the package (I.e., where and when). That's how I understand it anyway.

the miles you get by exchanging your points .

So this is actually a voucher right with expiration date?  Unlike my UA miles sitting on my UA account to use how and when I want, you don't have much control over how to or when to use because what you get is a voucher

To set things straight about the vacation package: You redeem 280k for a seven night voucher at (any?) Marriott in that category that expires in one year from issuance. They give you miles to your chosen airline you do not need to book travel at all.

Starts at 200k not 280k - and every category is different amount, see HERE (http://www.marriott.com/rewards/usepoints/morepack.mi?aff=MARUS&affname=6156223&co=US&nt=CJ) for exact packages amounts.

Yes, the transfer is claimed to count towards the companion pass.
No, from reading the post and Marriott site and the Points Guy the 7days must be booked consecutively. It seems (& makes sense) the specific hotel must be booked as well upon purchasing the package. Why not just try it and see if they require you to choose a hotel??

After the approval of this card, you get gold status right away on your Marriot Account?
I have marriot account number and entered it in the APP. Approved yesterday & so far the status is still ZERO. Is it free breakfast for 2 at any marriot  properties like courty yard , residence inn & lounge access  etc?

Takes anyone days unless you requested it to be expedited which will still take a coupe days if you don't have a current Ritz account.  The lounge pass Comes a few days later and I doubt they can expedite that but you can call

Or I should just buy a $300 AA giftcard on AA.com with this card & than call Chase for the $300 back?

Where do you sell the $300 AA GC and how much you get?

not that simple. check wiki. they may not want to give you credit because gift cards are not covered.

Did find it. Says something like book delta refundable flight on delta.com and than cancel for refund? And get $300 travel credit?

Will the following trick work?

Book it today for a flight costing $300 or more for travel date in Aug, call Chase in March 1 for $300 credit and once credit is posted, call delta to cancel without penalty for full refund? Will that work?

Thanks for the info. Let me get this clear, book the ticket with upgrade to EC at the morning, cancel it before the end of next day. Once the purchase posts, call chase for Rebursement. The call should happen before refund for ticket posts.  Is this correct procedure? When the ticket is cancelled, the refund will be listed as pending, I am afraid Chase will see it when I call.

Bump.  I really want my 300 credit, already paid the annual fee, and gift cards didn't work... trying to book a fully refundable ticket on United and can't figure out what to do. Can anyone direct me? Thanks!
Why don't you just book a JetBlue ticket as stated upthread??

Okay thank you to all for your kind words :) I will read upthread how to book via jet blue, haven't read this thread in a couple weeks and someone who had successfully gotten their credit had messaged me with what he did, and he had booked a fully refundable United ticket, which I obviously won't be doing now

Each time I feel like it's time to try again, there's another method that comes out that's better... first with the delta PGGM which took me ages to understand then it stopped working, then the gift cards that I didn't get reimbursement etc

Data point: my points posted in my ritz account and then I merged my ritz and marriott accounts.
My friend has the marriott CC and when he got the ritz he put in his ritz FFN.
But they put the points and gold status in his marriott account.
Not sure how this affects future churning.

"What is your policy for taking guests into a lounge?
You can invite friends or guests to join you in a lounge. Most lounges will allow any number of guests but where there are limits, details are shown in the lounge details if you search on this website. When you enter the lounge you will receive a voucher which you must check before signing. This will note if any guests are with you at the time and it is your responsibility to ensure this is correct. If applicable, the lounge visit fee for your visit and for any guests will be charged directly to your designated payment card."

For those bringing in guests. Just have the lounge swipe your LoungeClub card multiple times, and you won't be charged because you have unlimited access. However if the lounge swipes your LoungeClub card once and keys in the amount of people, then you will get charged if the lounge charges for guests.

I would do this in a heartbeat if I had enough points. out of curiosity when is the reservation?

Sorry to drive everyone crazy, but I just want to make sure I did it correctly before I called in (as I mentioned before, I had tried this with the gift cards and it never ended up working.)

I booked 2 refundable tickets on jetblue for $3400, and chose the seat upgrade options that were available for me, all within the same booking. I had a total of $310 of upgrades. Is that the right thing to do? Or did the upgrade have to be a separate charge? Not sure I understand how I'll get a refund that I'll be able to keep if I end up cancelling the entire charge.

Thanks!

U did it perfectly it doesn't have to be 2 separate cards. Though alot of people as a precaution use 2 cards but there is no need.

I booked a fully refundable Jet Blue flight, with $310 worth of seat upgrades. I called up this afternoon, and my $300 travel credit has already been posted to my account. I am going to wait I think a week to cancel the tickets. It looks like it will be very straightforward to cancel, I just don't want to raise any flags on my Chase end. I think other people have been successful when they cancelled right away.

I understand:
1) the vacation package includes a 7 night hotel stay.
2) if u cancel the hotel stay u will receive the refund in the form of a voucher for 7 consecutive nights.
3) the voucher expires after 1 year.

If the points are already in your Ritz account, they are safe and no risk in loosing them.

i hope so, i read many in FT saying before they canceled within 60 days to get $350 fee refund, they transferred points to southwest account  to give chase zero chance for successful clawback. Marriot recently devalued their points again and also made is almost impossible to extend the points expiration? They said you can no longer extend the points expiration date by points transfer from Chase?

My 140K points are in Marriot account. Maybe I should just transfer it  another program. I don't fly southwest so wonder where to transfer to.

did you cancel the card or keeping it?


I got good use of the lounge pass during my 2 weeks trip to asia, used it 3 times in seoul and singapore and narita. Narita  and singapore lounge was the worst. Narita  was pathetic, the Ambassdor lounge  barely had anything to eat .  and those were in korean too.

the one in seoul airport was fantastic! I am not traveling for 10 months so no use of lounge for me.

Its not clear, because when they say transfer they probably mean from one marriott account to another.

https://www.marriott.com/marriott-rewards/terms/expiration.mi

Marriot recently devalued their points again and also made is almost impossible to extend the points expiration?

very clear that cc points will help extend.
shopping mall also works.

also you can buy 1k points for $12.50 worst case scenario.

you may even be able to extend by making a booking and then canceling it.

TLDR: its not so bad.

once i cancel the ritz card, i can extend my 140k marriot points by buying  1k marriot points for $12.50 or you need an actual marriot card to buy the points?

Marriot website is showing 50K united miles for 120K marriot points. There was no option to convert the entire 143K marriot points I have to UA.

Been discussed many times in this thread. The answer is that pggm does not work. Buy a refundable jet blue ticket, buy extra legroom, and call up to get the credit. It won't post automatically.

140k is better
1)points are easier to keep till you need them as opposed to free nights which will last a year (plus however much you can extend it).
2) the 2 free nights are tier 1-4. you won't be able to stay in a tier 5 ritz. 140k = 2 free nights in tier 5 ritz. or 4 nights in cat 1.
3) Im not sure you could use a tier cert for a marriot hotel or not, but you definitely can use the points.

You probably can't use a tier cert from Ritz to Marriot.
I know the other way you can't so I assume it's a 2 way street.

Yes.
Can you share the message you sent them to be matched?
The offer that I signup for was 2 free nights after spending $3,000 in the first 3 months. I heard there was a different offer recently for a signup bonus of 140,000 Ritz Carlton points. Would it be possible to be matched to this offer? Points would work better for me than the free nights.
Something like that.
Did you ask after you made the spend or before?

Mine was before, my wife's was after. Mine took 3 days. That's an interesting thought, that doing it after the spend would make a difference.

Few questions here
I got this in FEB 2015

When will I see next year's AF?

Can I claim $300 credit before the fee comes up?



The $3k you spent to get the bonus points (140k) in first 3 months of card opening counts for $10k spend to get gold status for the following year? Spend $7k to get gold in 2016?

This card gives only 1 devalued marriot point for regular purchases so hate to use this card for any purchases and if you lower your CL to $1k, even harder.

feb or march 2016 statement
Can I claim $300 credit before the fee comes up?

yes since its calendar year based so in January

The $3k you spent to get the bonus points (140k) in first 3 months of card opening counts for $10k spend to get gold status for the following year? Spend $7k to get gold in 2016?

really depends on if you stay there enough to make it worth it

This card gives only 1 devalued marriot point for regular purchases so hate to use this card for any purchases and if you lower your CL to $1k, even harder.

why lower your credit limit just yet? do it after you spend 7k more.

1) Ur AF will probably post around March 1st
2) yes
3) I can't see why 7k wouldn't be sufficient.

Assuming opening 2 cards (husband/wife) = 140 x 2 =  4 nights in tier 5

Have 2 Q's before applying for this card with intention of use for a future vacation.
1 Are suites able to be reserved using awards?
2 Which location seems to be the best bang for buck and has availability for a nice weekend getaway (within 4 hr flight from NY)

Not clear to me
Are you saying if I apply today for RITZ C 2 nites free and send SM --chase will match to expired 140k offer ?

I am aware that MARRIOTT  50k etc  offers have been matched to 70k etc even if offer was not available to everyone

 this is clear---if i applied today for 2 free nite and next week chase came out with 140k would have a  chance to be matched to 140k

They always (afaik) match Marriott,  70k for $2k and 80k for $3k.
If the offer goes back to 140k then as per chase official policy they "will" match you to 140k.

Thank you for contacting us about the enrollment bonus
offer on The Ritz-Carlton Rewards® credit card from J.P.
Morgan ending in xxxx.

Your current offer is two complimentary night stays at The
Ritz-Carlton, tiers 1-4, after you spend $3,000 in the
first three months of opening your account. We are
pleased to advise you that we can match your request for
another enrollment offer to receive 140,000 points if you
spend $3,000 within the first 3 months of opening your
account. The complimentary night stays would be canceled
and we will add 140,000 points to your account.

I'd love to get Chase to match the 140k offer, but haven't applied for the card yet. Has it been 90 days since the 140k offer expired? And if not, does that mean chase will probably match it?

Does anyone know if it's possible to get an offer match from Chase before actually receiving/activating the card? I'd like to request the match as soon as possible, but think I'll be told there's nothing they can do if I haven't activated the card yet.

Gotcha, thanks! Maybe I'll try to see if they can expedite the shipping to see if it shows up online sooner. Any data points on how long it takes to show up online (with/without expediting it)?

Mmm... I figured expediting the card would help. The fast shipping itself shouldn't, but if faster shipping also gets you faster processing -> card showing up online faster then it would help.

I finally got the response that they will be able to match me to the 140K in lieu of the 2 free nights. However they added the following statement:

"At this time we do not have an offer for 140,000 enrollment points and a $300 statement credit."

Does that mean I am not getting the $300 airline credit or is that a standard perk of this card?

I am kind of annoyed. I tried to make a booking using the club upgrade for the Ritz Fort Lauderdale. The regular rate online was $259, when I called they said i had to pay the price of an ocean view room since all club rooms are ocean view. The rate for cheapest ocean view was $350. No where in the terms which I will quote below say anything about needing to book the same type of room. The only thing the terms say are not combinable with other offers.

From the chase site:
Quote
Club Level offer valid at participating hotels on up to three paid stays per Account Year using The Ritz-Carlton Rewards Credit Card with a seven night maximum length of stay, subject to availability at time of reservation. ("Account Year" means the year beginning with your account open date through the first statement after the anniversary of your account open date, and each twelve billing cycles thereafter.) E-Certificate is required, is non-transferable, and not combinable with other offers. Not valid on corporate or other promotional rates.

It is not easy to understand the gold benefits of Marriot. They have many properties and different marriots and some have breakfast and lounge access and some not. I have the 140k on marriot account.

No breakfast or lounge access at JW Marriots, Renaissance & Marriot resort hotels?

Lounge Access/Free Breakfast
Free daily continental breakfast, light snacks and beverages for members and one guest in the Executive Lounge*. In the U.S. and Canada, choose between 750 bonus points or breakfast in the hotel’s restaurant if the lounge is closed. Select hotels will provide 1,000 points in lieu of breakfast in the event the lounge is closed. Learn more

Been discussed many times in this thread. The answer is that pggm does not work. Buy a refundable jet blue ticket, buy extra legroom, and call up to get the credit. It won't post automatically.

Thanks for the tip. I assume,  a)the extra legroom / upgrade can be bought after the original ticket is purchased (as mentioned upthread) and b) the extra legroom or upgrade is fully refundable as well?

I already got $4500 and will get another $5000 of value from them.

One example of a good value

JW Marriott Shanghai 140,000 points gets your 17 nights and the gold status will get you an upgrade to a suite, $500x17=$9350.

Similarly, I recently got both the Ritz Carlton and the Marriott card without having a Rewards account with either program. To my surprise, Chase went ahead and set me up with a single rewards number on both cards. What I'm unsure of right now is if I should create an online login for both Ritz and Marriott or just for one. And in the second case, for which program should I create the login? Thanks.

Who knows.
I had a similar story a few weeks ago, applied in the morning one after the other (for a friend) Mpe: approved instant Csp: approved instant Marriott: pending which went on to be denied.
Later at night I decided to throw in a Ritz-Carlton which went to pending and then approved without recon!

True, to use money that you spend even if you get credited back for it (ie $200 Amex travel credit or $300 Ritz so on).
But if you meet a threshold and you later return everybody (?) Knows that they "usually" don't claw back bonuses. Although it's advised against.

Do the night certificates (which I'll convert to 140k) points generally post soon after the first statement? I'd really like to use them for my upcoming travel in the next month... Hopefully converting the certs to points won't take more than a few days - I was already approved for the match, but I was told to contact them again after the certs posted.

Nights will post at statement close after meeting spend. Matching to 140k, can sometimes take another cycle. 1 out of 2 for me.

Thanks Toasted. I didn't quite understand your last sentence though: "1 out of 2 for me". Did getting the 140k points take another statement on one occasion, but only a few days for another?

I actually just checked my secure messages again. The CSR actually told me to reply to them once I had met the spend, not once the certificate posted. Maybe they'll be able to make the change before my first statement closes so I can get the 140k right after my first statement ends. Perhaps this is just wishful thinking.

You need to find a stay that's exactly 280K. Call Marriott rewards at 800-450-4442, book that stay and tell them your spouse will transfer the additional points needed. They will fax or email you a form that needs to be signed by the one transferring. Once it is completed you can cancel reservation and the points will all go back into that account.

I had an three month existing res @ 120 K when I realized I paid for it all on my account . Wife's account had 71,400 . Asked them to split the existing res and fund 71,400 from wife and rest from mine

Said they would have to cancel existing Res and risk not getting it back. Emailed me a form , wife signed it and they created fake res , credited the 71 K CXLED res and my account 71 K richer

Funny thing just happened! Right after I posted this I called up to do a transferand for the first time I had a rep tell me that I can only transfer  the balance! I told him to wait while I take points out of the account, via new reservation, he said ok sent me the form and then I cancelled original reservation. First that ever happened to me.

I was just denied a match request to 140k points .
Is it worth trying to sm them again or call?
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

They probably see the same description that shows up online on your chase account,  then they ask you for what the charge is and if you can sell it than your good.
I don't think I would take the chance unless you anyways want to buy that.

I did JetBlue Refundable with seat upgrades. But it posted as one charge along with the ticket. I called Chase and they did a one time courtesy credit after I emailed in to them the split charges for proof.

Maybe I should have bought the seat upgrade a day later or so, so it would be a separate charge. Can you do this? If done after the fact, would it for sure also be refundable?

I still need to handle this for my wife's card, and she will be none too pleased to need to go through 5 phone calls and failed fax attempts to get this through. (Neither fax# chase gave to me would pick up, just kept ringing, so I ended up needing to print email to pdf and email to them, which would have been my preference to begin with.)

Officially the credits are for "incidentals." By your standards even though Amex credits go through automatically, it's just as illegal and unhalachic to buy those.

the latter, depending on context -- but for each one YMMV

Better question is has anyone gotten it matched recently at all?

I got mine removed and I didn't get the 140k. I called up to expedite it and they assured me it will be there in a days time and it's still not there.

Was this a recent match? If so, what did you write- they denied me a few weeks ago because the 140k offer had expired too long ago.

Not too recent. I got matched when everyone was still getting matched.

I was matched to the 140k points offer at the end of may. I reached the minimum spend a few weeks ago, and then last week asked them to do the switch to points. They took the certificates out of my account, and I just realized now that the points are only going to go in after the next statement close in a few weeks.
The problem is that I have a reservation at the Prague Marriott starting tomorrow and if I don't have the points Marriott won't be able to issue a certificate.
I tried calling chase to see if they can expedite the points but that didn't work. I'm going to call Marriott to see if they can give me an advance on the points. Any other ideas?

This is a premium card, you should be able to find someone in Chase or Ritz to help you out.

Okay, did it. Hopefully it'll clear by the time we get to the hotel.

I tried twice at the number on the back of the card, twice at Marriott reservations and once at Ritz Carlton. Any talking points that might help (that don't make me sound like an entitled snob)?

Once again - you guys freak out about openly public ideas. Really? I did this 7 months ago - with all of FT! DD rocks for deals - but the world of Manufactured Spend, is old news.
