Click Here to get more details on this card and compare to other cards!

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 emailed them, they did it a day later
Interesting. I was under the assumption that they won't extend them.

Thanks

+1 The only thing I can think is $300 travel credit plus flights booked thru their travel portal save another $100...

Depends on the person, if you're providing 10+ people with a PP for $150 a year, that's not a bad deal.

True. Although why would someone not get CSR

  $450 AF
 -$300 TC
=$150...

Is there a thread for that?

Not everyone can get or wants a CSR. Also, this is 10 PP for $150 vs 1 PP, not everyone is going to get full value out of the CSR.

Say you want to add 5 AUs (and get them PPs ) with CSR that'll cost $375 extra, while with the Ritz card, it'll be at no extra cost!!
