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.)

Anyone have any experience with moving the credit limit to other cards and lowering CL on this to <$1579 to waive annual fee (as its illegal to have annual fee more than 25% of CL)?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Why not just close the card?

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

nights post within a couple days of meeting spend. not related to when the statement date is.

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.

-1 just create any stay. They will create and cancel the phantom
res for you if you call the silver or gold line.

Just did it with an existing 120 K award in my account alone .

Are you sure? When I did it they told me they can only transfer the exact amount needed on the reservation.

From my experience with Marriott, every rep tells you something else!

To clarify things: If you make reservation with insufficient amount of points int he account you can call up and do a spouse transfer of up to the amount of points required for the reservation.
This is statement and not a question

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

Ask for silver or gold line . Did this 2 weeks ago .
GL

This is what happened IME not a question , a description of the facts .

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.
