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.)

The one thing it does have to do with 5/24 is that the Marriott consumer card is subject to 5/24 and the Ritz isn't. So this PC bypasses 5/24
Valid point. I guess this is a way to get the Marriott card over 5/24, but you don't get the Marriott SUB, which IMO is pretty much the biggest attraction, this annual free night may change that.
I'll tell you later

Thatís incorrect. You can PC a ritz
I called yesterday and the rep was ready to PC me to marriot premier and then she saw that I had a premier open, so the only option if I didnt want to pay the AF was to cancel, so I cancelled

Marriott if you don't have one yet (and are lucky).

Does the GE credits kick in automatically or do I need to call in?

Also is the credit every 4 years from card opened or 4 years from last credit

Also is it one credit per account or per card

With enough calling and convincing you can get almost anything travel related refunded.

Does the GE credits kick in automatically or do I need to call in?

Also is the credit every 4 years from card opened or 4 years from last credit

Also is it one credit per account or per card

Pretty sure itís automatic but calling in canít hurt.

Credit is once every 4 years for what Iím assuming is since you last used it.

GE credit is one per an account. The AUís do not get it. But they would get PP.

Any idea or DPís on how soon after spending the 75k one gets plat status (besides for the stated 6-8 weeks)? Or is there any way at all to expedite the status?
