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.)

I have never done a cncl fee after 60 days -- I was told many times
if cancel in less than 60 days --CSR can do it on the phone -- if 61-180 needs to send a request ( to who???) and a check will be sent--- the question is -- WHO REVIEWS --WHAT DO THE LOOK AT AND WHAT REMARKS THEY ENTER ON UR PROFILE -- very easy for any bank to see ur entire history -- IF the request goes to the marketing dept , may lead to more problems that u do not want

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
So 5 out of 5 say at least 60 days?  :)

I recently closed two cards through recon. I sent an SM and had my AF on both credited back without any questions. The fees had been charged about 5 months before.

What is the chance I will get blacklisted? I don't really want to cancel it, but I cannot afford to pay the $400, would they waive it if I give them that ultimatum?

Can anyone who has this card share feedback on how the airline credit works on this? It seems that it must me requested and applied manually
1. How strict are they with the rules
2. How fast can you request the credit? As soon as bill closes or even as soon as charge posts?

I dont know if that is sarcastic. Chase is pretty strict about the huge signup bonuses according to ft.

2. As soon as it posts.

PM them and ask them to send you an added user and expedite it. Chances are it comes in time.
