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 the Ritz card offer primary renter's insurance like the Sapphire ?
ETA: From here https://www.ritzcarltonrewardscard.com/travel-purchase-protection it seems like it offers primary.
For some odd reason, I always thought that only the SP, and UA are the only chase cards that offer primary renters insurance.

The 25% credit line to annual fee ration rule is only for 1st year.
Thanks for the info. My fee just hit as well. IME first yr was waived as per terms of the offer. Second year waived due to credit line. Now just got hit with fee.

Do the signup nights post within a week of spending (like Hyatt) or after the statement generates (like other Chase cards)?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

The former, although it has been delayed at times.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Dumb question- If I got the bonus nights for signing up for this card in 2015 can I reapply and get the bonus nights again?

Does your card provide the $300 airline incidentals?
