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.)

Why is everyone closing the card? Definitely worth the af for the annual night + $300 TC.
You're paying an extra $55 a year for a cert worth 15k more points over the Marriott card but you're also missing out on $300 in the year that you downgrade the card so that's not necessarily worth it unless you highly value the PP from the AU's.

Forgive my confusion, so are you saying you think this card is a good idea or not a good idea?

Up to you but I just downgraded mine if that's any indication. It really comes down to how your value the anniversary night and the other perks of the card. I'd rather have the cash but that's just me.

How did it work in the end? I tried HUCA so many times. So far no luck. Any tips on how to get it extended?

No.
Why would that be relevant?

For my recent DP my card had been closed for 8 months and therefore had no use...

"Great news! We've increased your credit limit to $2,200"

No, thank you.
