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.)

From what I understand the PP on this has unlimited guests per visit, but cant actually find anything from chase confirming it, this is confirmed to still be active?

Does this mean they went plastic and are returning to metal or are they now going back to the super thick metal they used to have?

I believe it is the original thickness as the current version of card is already metal.

Curious to see if the annual Economy plus subscription will work for the annual travel credit. Anyone dare to try?

It really depends on the rep you speak with. They can approve any airline charges.

Just got my AF on my Marriott boundless and thinking of upgrading to the Ritz.
1. Will I get refunded the $95 and charged later for the Ritz or will they pro-rate it?
2. Will they remove the 35K certificate from my account?
3. Will I get the 85K certificate when the AF posts or do I need to wait a year?

Thanks. Just made the PC.
Regarding the travel credit, can it be applied to a flight purchase? Do they ask for any proof of what the purchase is?

Probably the boundless, which currently offers 5 50K certificates as a SUB.

@yochai what do you mean as a SUB? Thank you.

I just applied for the Amex Marriott Bonvoy Business Credit Card - and looking to get the Bonvoy Boundless Credit Card Visa.  After 1 year, I plan to upgrade to the Ritz Carlton.  Would that be possible?  Thank you!

SUB=Sign up bonus.
You won’t be eligible for the SUB on the Boundless card if you get a bonus on the Marriott Amex within the past 24 months, but you can still get it to upgrade to the Ritz after a year.

So to clarify there is no way of getting the 85k in year 2 after opening the marriott card and upgrading after the first 12 months?  If that's true why would anyone pay the higher fee for year number 2 just wait until 24 months so you can upgrade before the renewal date and then get the 85k night?

Personally i was told i couldn't upgrade until the actual day of renewal by which point i already got the 35k night but they are telling me i will still get the 85k as well which i doubt but i don't see any reason to pay the higher fee until you get the 85k
Sorry I don't have any snarky line for this space

The 85K comes after a year of upgrading to the Ritz, regardless of when you do it.
