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.)

So we should book blue plus, not blue flex? Where does it say blue flex returns to travel bank? I bought blue flex last year and it worked. Did it change this year?
Read the fare rules. If it doesn't say refundable it's not. Period.

Enough questions on this topic. Let's use our judgement.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

It seems there is different refundable. Some returns to the travel bank, some returns to original payment. So refundable doesn't seem to be the only factor.

So far 3 supervisors and nothing doing!
Do you have any personal experience or you just assume?
It has been done. Perhaps pay someone who is good on the phone with these things 10% or something if they can pull it off.

You have to select Refundable, apparently I just didn't.

Anyone know if you can have more than one of these at the same time? I got one 1-2 years ago and would like to get the bonus again without cancelling the one I have. What about cancelling it and immediately (wait time?) applying for it again? I'm waaaay over 5/24.

Curious as well. Currently have the Ritz Card and wouldn't mind getting another one. I'm waaaay over 5/24 too :).

I know it's possible to churn Chase bonuses in less than 2 years - I just don't know if you need to close out accounts before applying for the same ones again. Anyone know? Feel free to pm me if you're more comfortable that way.

Makes sense that you're curious to find an answer to your own question.

How do you do that? Do you call after you book? And would they ask for the credit card?

If it is a family member, why do you care about the credit card?

Easiest is to call the property directly once you book. They will ask the person checking in for their own. CC and charge it for incidentals.
