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.)

Will PGGM work to get this $300 credit?
Sometimes it doesn't pay to save money.

You have to call or SM to get the credit. Use Jetblue.

By simply booking a refundable fare, or should I be doing something else?

Wait for the purchase to post and then call up chase. They refunded me automatically. By the end of the phone call the credit was on my account

Not to make you crazy, but there are a lot of lower case t's on the back, so get that tefilin ink back out ASAP!

I am ashamed to ask but can someone please tell me what PGGM is? Every thread, wiki, and article I found either is deleted or simply mentions the term PGGM. I understand buying refundable airline tx and upgrades which works fine for RC CC but I am trying to do similar with Amex Plat, who specifically does not allow the credit to be used on upgrades. I booked tix on United and JetBlue hoping to add a couple bags but you can only do that within 24hrs of flight at check-in. Is PGGM booking within 24 hours, adding bags, requesting credit, and then cancelling tx?
PM works since it would appear anything explaining PGGM is on double secret probation.
Thanks.
