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.)

If one adds a authorized user under the age of 18, will they be able to take advantage of priority pass?

On June 7 I charged the global entry fee to my Ritz CC and I got the credit the next day.

I just upgraded to a Ritz Card today and in my card benefits section there is no mention of global entry or priority pass. The rep told me over the phone that lounge access is included, do they send me my Priority Pass automatically? Is there no need to activate it like by the sapphire reserve? Can I just charge my card for Global Entry and assume it will be reimbursed?

Good to know, because as mentioned above it does not show it in the benefits.

Does in flight duty free count for $300 travel credit? (Does EL AL currently have inflight duty free?)
