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.)

Any reason to keep this card open. Already got the credit this year?
And will it help apply for the new SPG card if I have this card closed for 30+ Days (have card more then 2 yers and no other Marriott cards)?

If their gonna give a 50k points certificate every anniversary, then it's enough of a reason to keep it imo.

Id rather a 125K point signup bonus on the SPG if eligible.

Downgraded Ritz card to marriot, and upgraded again.
Can I get the AF refunded again by lowering the credit line ?

i would imagine not, legally only first year,and an upgrade probably wont be under that even in the first year.
whats the point in the downgrade-upgrade though?

No. But they offered me the club level upgrade for $200 since I'm a gold member
