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.)

Does anyone know I recently switched from Bonvoy to the Ritz card and was just charged the annual fee do I get a free night for 85k now or only after having the card for one year which would mean I pay two annual fees for one night?

How does spending $75k on this card earn Marriott Platinum? I reached the $75k spend months ago but have not seen anything to indicate that I have renewed my Platinum status. Does anyone here have experience with this situation?

Any ideas for spending the $300 credit without flying? Are there any airlines which allow refunds of seat fees etc to a voucher?

Thinking of trying this with LY. Book a cheap tlv-lca and upgrade to business with ritz, and then cancel to voucher. Any reason why wouldn't work?

what's the current best way to utilize the $300 air credit
What did you do?


Also, I assume as long as the charge posts in 2022 Iím good even if the credit comes in 2023. Right?

Yes, works the same way for amex Grubhub credits, and alike offers per month. As long as the charge will post before the end of the month you'll be fine. Though I'm curios if a charge you do on one day, will ever post the same day.

What is the best time to convert to the ritz card? After the AF or before? When do you earn your first FNC when you convert to this card?

I converted after the AF charged but before I paid it, they deducted my $99 AF charge and then charged me (over 6 months later) my $450 charge. I received my FNC 12 months after I had upgraded (6 months after AF kicked in). If this is your first year they are not going to let you product change before the full year/AF.

Does it take 12 months to get the FNC regardless of when you upgrade or was just because you upgraded right after renewal?

It only comes after your first year of membership
