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.)

Yes for new apps. Although next year, it will probably be $450 for everyone
They told me, that existing cardholders are grandfathered in at $395 for life.

FTFY. You need more of a test pool to say works.

If you'll think a bit, you'll realize the difference between your phone calls and SM, and what you could have done differently the future.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

How long do you have to cancel the card and get full refund? Is that from when af hits account or from opening the card?

do they allow free night reservations to be changed and how about if I want to rebook once the certificate has already expired?

30 days from AF posting.

so if AF posted on the 1st of the month, do i have until the 30th or the 31st to cancel and get full fee back?
if not cancelled in time, can the ritz card be downgraded to some no fee version to get prorated fee back?

You can switch the name on the reservation or you have to add a 2nd guest?
