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.)

Whats your point? It would be $300 for 2014 and $300 for 2015.
Just wanted to post the link...didnt mean to quote you
If you think nobody cares about you... just forget to pay your credit card bill

To be eligible for this bonus offer, account must be open and not in default at the time of fulfillment. If your account is not open for at least 6 months, The Ritz-Carlton and Chase reserve the right to deduct the bonus points from The Ritz-Carlton Rewards account.


Does anybody have experience with this?

If your credit card account has a rewards program with one
of our partner companies (such as an airline program),
rewards previously earned and transferred to that
partner's rewards program are unaffected. If you have any
pending transactions that have not yet posted to a credit
card billing statement, the rewards earned for those
transactions are forfeited upon closure of your account.
Any rewards not previously transferred to the partner
program are also forfeited due to the closure of your
account.

I hear you now have six months to get the AF back when you close a Chase card.
Can anyone confirm? If true, you can leverage this for 140k points + $400!
where did you here that from? its not on the T&C so chase cannot take forfeit points beside that i never came across of a bank withdrawing points from partners see the above quot  from chase SM

Date point:

Did this offer last time around, received 140K + $300.

Cancelled within 60 days of fee posting, and got it refunded.

Points are sitting in my Ritz account, have not been clawed back.

3 out of 5 chase reps have told me 160 to get fee refunded and 2 out of 5 have told me 60 days. I go with majority
