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.)

Ask for retention first. I got $150.
Took me a 2 minute phone call right now to get the same offer. Thanks!

Let me know if you figure out a way. I just applied to the Marriott Boundless and hope to PC it in a year to the RC if they let me. I'll be the DP for others to see if this works. We'll see what happens in 2020.

What specific lounge benefit are you looking for? Is it offered with other cards?

I have the City National Bank Crystal card and it offers that perk. Just something to consider. (If you haven't researched this card, be aware, the underwriting process is pretty in depth and not really for faint of heart.) But, you might want to look into it. I wonder if there are other cards that also offer unlimited PP guests. There probably are, but I could only find the CNB as one example.

Best of luck!

I have a 60K free night certificate expiring tomorrow. I tried extending it but they claim the only way to extend is if it switches to a 50k certificate.
I was wondering what would happen if I'd book a 60k hotel and later cancel? Anyone have experience with this?

Currently there are no 60k hotels
Sorry, cat 7 hotels are 60k points. There are 164 Cat 7 hotels as of now.
