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.)

I had an three month existing res @ 120 K when I realized I paid for it all on my account . Wife's account had 71,400 . Asked them to split the existing res and fund 71,400 from wife and rest from mine

Said they would have to cancel existing Res and risk not getting it back. Emailed me a form , wife signed it and they created fake res , credited the 71 K CXLED res and my account 71 K richer

Ask for silver or gold line . Did this 2 weeks ago .
GL

This is what happened IME not a question , a description of the facts .
What's the gold line number?

From my experience with Marriott, every rep tells you something else!

When booking the jet blue ticket for the airline credit, do I have to first purchase a standard ticket, and then upgrade, or when originally booking the ticket I can choose the mint- business ticket,- by seat selection - and that will be seen as a upgrade ?

My EMS seats posted as one charge when I booked them at the same time as the basic ticket. They posted as separate charges when I upgraded later. Chase didn't bat an eye at either one.

You bought EMS seats, and then upgraded the same ticket to business later ?

When you select your seat, you'll see the prices.

How do you get the Lounge club access?
Does it come with the card itself or do you need to somehow apply for it after you get the card?
I need it ASAP

It comes automatically, usually after the actual card comes

If I have Chase send me the Ritz card to Israel, will the Lounge card also be sent to Israel?

Got the Ritz card 2 mnths ago and I still haven't had a statement close. Normally I'd be excited about this but I need the statement to close so I can get the 140k. Anyone else had this experience?
