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.)

Anyone looking to sell a Priority Pass membership? All you need need to do is add me as an AU, then destroy the cc and send me the PP card. Unless rules recently changed, it should be free for you, so itís easy money.

Pretty sure its annually. Unlike chase sapphire reserve which depends upon when your card member anniversary is. (For grandfathered in CSR cardholders the travel credit renews annually)

when i cancel my card, do i lose any of these?  the anniversary night was just awarded

Good luck convincing them it was an upgrade. Call after 8-9pm you might have a better chance to get an Indian rep.

You might be confusing it with the amex plat or CSR. Ritz always required call-in, see Wiki.

Chat might work better
