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.)

How long does the airline credit typically take to post? Charge posted on 12/29 and still no sign of the credit.
Risk is opportunity

Did you call? They need to manually credit it on the Ritz card, but also not instant.

Calendar year.

With a bit of work this card can make you money every year.
In what way?
120 characters? Hmm, I wonder what I could write with 64 characters. Boy, it's gonna be hard to use up 15 characters. W-

$300 GC sells easily for $255+
Free night sells for $250+

How likely is it that a rep would give the $300 credit for gift card?

If you tell them you purchased a gift card? not likely at all

Would it be worth it to try get this card? (By signing up for a bonvoy and getting it switched after 12 months) or are they likely to cut benefits or close the card down before I can get it?

They just cut the $100 credit towards flights so it might be worth to rethink.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

I just applied to the Marriott Boundless and hope to PC it in a year to the RC if they let me. I'll be the DP for others to see if this works.

Any update?

We'll see what happens in 2020.
Bet you didn't think that line would mean much

If one adds a authorized user under the age of 18, will they be able to take advantage of priority pass?
