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.)

Then don't do the spend and see how simple it will be to get the bonus when the spend is missed.
precisely why hes asking, to see if anyone can confirm either way

I don't get all this needless hocking. Seat assignment officially count according to the T & C. Book a refundable JetBlue flight. Buy seat upgrades. Call chase and get your $300 credit. Cancel the flight. Zeh hoo! STOP BUYING GC AND HOPING CHASE DOESNT REALIZE!

I've never been A/A'd by Chase but from what I've heard they're much worse than Amex which is why people aren't as worried about the PGGM on the Plat.

I would just be worried that chase might be monitoring this thread.

Overlooked benefit: unlimited visits to Loungeclub lounges! You have to call and ask them to send you the card. Idk if your membership gets canceled when you cancel the card(i.e. With the plat, amex cancels the priority pass right away) data points, anyone?


Btw I used my Loungeclub from INk on my trip to thailand   :-*

Did you go into thai airways?

I thought the Loungeclub is only 2x per year? At least I think that's what it is for Chase ink Bold CMIIW...

What is the status of this link? From FT wiki:


Active link found on blog 12/16 for 140K offer: https://www.theritzcarltonrewardscard.com/offer140k
Many have applied through this link only to find the application was assigned to a different promo for 2 free nights instead of points. Calling JP Morgan Chase CS has indicated they are aware of this issue and CSRs are expecting the 140k points to be honored but no one in this situation has actually received the 140k points as of Dec 28, 2014.

Idk if the Loungeclub comes automatically or not. When I asked about it, the rep made it sound like it's something you have to request.
With iNk you only get 2 passes. (Though each AU also gets so I made 5 AU and 5 more loungeclubs 8)
With the ritz card you get unlimited visits until the card expires.
I didn't go to the Thai Lounge.
(I plan on writing a trip report when I have time-dtw-JFK-jnb-cpt-jnb-bkk-cnx-dmk-sin-hkg-ewr basically all on one UA 80k ticket!)
