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 your card provide the $300 airline incidentals?
I believe so.

CARD act only protects against first year, consider yourself lucky to not been charged it before, it's pretty YMMV for year 2 and 3, although many DP suggest year 3 you'll likely be charged

How soon after closing the card can I apply again? I closed the card less then a month ago and would like to get it again as part of a AOR. looking for DP's.
Please note, I am not asking about getting the bonus again (I got the card more then 2 years ago).

And to get the bonus again how long do you have to wait after closing it?

It's 24 months from receiving the bonus, nothing to do with when you close it, Chase just won't approve you for a card if you already have it open.

Thanks. How is the 24 months calculated? Is it from the day you sign up?
