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.)

I converted after the AF charged but before I paid it, they deducted my $99 AF charge and then charged me (over 6 months later) my $450 charge. I received my FNC 12 months after I had upgraded (6 months after AF kicked in). If this is your first year they are not going to let you product change before the full year/AF.
so to reiterate, you got a boundless and had it for a year+ and right after they charged you the AF for the boundless you product changed to the ritz card (I’m assuming you got the 35k fnc from the boundless)and then they charged you 6 months later ect….?

If PC’ing from boundless, does it make sense to do it right at year 1 anniversary when eligible? I think those would result in loss of the boundless FNC for that year. Or wait until boundless FNC posts and then PC? Is it just a question of starting the clock on the superior Ritz card anniversary FNC faster (and less risk of chase possibly stopping this type of PC) vs. having that additional boundless FNC? Thanks

I did my pc right after fnc posted. My Ritz fnc posted a year after my boundless fnc. My Ritz af only kicked in a couple of months after my pc.

I'm thinking about getting the card in a few months. If you're an airline elite, then you likely have most or all incidentals for free. But has anyone tried this - you purchase the ticket using your main travel card, and then during the check-in, you pay for checked bags using the Ritz card. I can have 3 free bags, but I can select 4-6 bags, so I'd need to pay for 1-3 bags. And then you cancel the flight for a travel credit. Would the payment for the checked bags be reimbursed to the Ritz card, or would be included in the travel credit?
