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.)

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.

Same here. It takes a few days of processing, to even show up in the system.

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.
