===============================================Bes t public available offer:
Two free nights at any tier 1-4 Ritz Carlton Hotel after $3k spent. Annual fee of $395 NOT waived. https://www.theritzcarltonrewardscard.com/2CN

$300 Annual Travel Credit
"Make the most of your trip with a $300 annual travel credit to use for baggage fees, Global Entry fees, seat upgrades, access to your preferred airport lounge and more. Simply use your card for these expenses and call us at 1-855-896-2222, and we will refund the charges after your flight."

Actual T&C language, as of 08.22.15:"Only the following types of non-ticket Net Purchases qualify for this offer: airline lounge day pass, or towards a yearly lounge membership of your choice; airline seat upgrades; airline baggage fees; in-flight internet/entertainment; in-flight meals; Global Entry fees."

As of 1/2/2015, Credit for these charges are based on TRANSACTION (purchase) date, not posting date. If you made an eligible purchase before the end of the year, even if it doesn't post until the following year, you can still receive credit for the previous year. See post #1268

DO NOT attempt to get all $300 in one transaction. Most CSRs will question what incedential charge would be so high. Instead, get multiple smaller gift cards which line up with fees that airline charges. Make sure that whatever amounts you choose, you have an explanation ready for each. For example, AA overweight baggage fee is $150. $50 is first checked bag for 2 ppl. $75 is in the range of upgrade fees, etc.


Reimbursed:

AA e-Giftcards
Southwest eGiftcards - As of 12/30/14 Chase can distinguish between "incidental" and gift card purchase. YMMV depending on CSR.
Delta Giftcards (YMMV)
$78 AA Award flight taxes reimbursed
$22 BA Award flight taxes reimbursed
~$150 AA award fees, taxes, fuel surcharge reimbursed
$246 AA award fees, booking fee, all reported as upgrading to busn award
United Flight Taxes
Spirit Big Front Seats
Spirit Onboard Food and Drinks
DL Ticket Change fee $300
$210 DL first class up-fare
$300 of a $525 AA Admirals Club annual membership
$50 DL Transfer miles fee (2k miles plus $30 fee)
~$160 SQ award fees (circa 2014)
$70 upgraded seats on AA
$34 US award fees
$34 BA Award fees
$90 oneway ticket on AA (paid additional $90 with AA e-gc from last year)
$84.50 x 2 AA award fees
$150 B6 change fees er...umm..."seat upgrades"
$75 UA gift registry (no longer works as of Summer 2015)
$49.95 Bags VIP charge. It surprised me that it went since it comes up as BagsVIP and not an airline. I told the CSR it was AA's partner for baggage delivery and that I was (honestly) unsure if it would work.
UA Gift Registry $150 (one worked, one didn't) -- no longer works as of Summer 2015
$274 BA seat selection for 2 J class seats, LAX-LHR (Jan 2016)


Not Reimbursed:
$315 Avianca ticket charge
United giftcards
$150 AA award redeposit fee (YMMV)
UA Gift Registry $150 (one worked, one didn't)



The deal for 140K points is dead. Chase has replaced it with a complimentary night stay at any Tier 1-4 Ritz-Carlton hotel after spending $2,000 in the first 3 months, available here. As of February 12, 2015, there IS A BETTER known public offer (see below).

The 70K offer is long gone.



[EXPIRED] Active link found on blog 12/16 for 140K offer: https://www.theritzcarltonrewardscard.com/offer140k
Many have applied through this link only to find the application was assigned to a different promo for 2 free nights instead of points. Calling JP Morgan Chase CS has indicated they are aware of this issue and CSRs are expecting the 140k points to be honored but no one in this situation has actually received the 140k points as of Dec 28, 2014.


[EXPIRED] As reported by ghitt87: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/22807838-post16.html
Call 1-888-846-7004 to apply.
Mention these RSVP:
F5BP - 140k points after 2k spend in 3 months. Annual fee of $395 not waived first year. - DEAD 9/25
F53K - 70k points, $395 waived first year.

I wasn't targeted, but called and used the RSVP code (5/2). Just act like you got it in the mail.

1: When you SM, what categories do you choose? [Rewards Inquiry]-[Other Rewards Program Inquiry]????

2: Bought AA gc $200. The credit card transaction shows American Ai 0010658853XXX. Don't you think this signals Chase that the transaction is for gc purchase?

1-866-576-7575

Has the card shown up in your online account yet? They can't expedite until it shows up in your online account.

From what I heard when I got my card, shipments go out at 7PM EST every day, and should arrive the next day by end of day.

DH denied due to 9 new accounts(total not only Chase) in the last year. When did they start caring about that? Do we have any recourse? They would not consider moving credit from another Chase card.

You just got the wrong person. My wife has more than 9 in the last year, but plenty of credit with Chase. She easily moved credit from one card to another. I, on the other hand got a stickler who made me close my British Airways card with a $32,000 limit in order to grant me a $5,000 limit on my Ritz card. AND he drilled me about income and rewards and not using cards much after the 3 month period. I say if you get 20 seconds into a recon call and you don't like their tone, drop the connection.

Likely notes, but you can always try again.

I had 7 accounts with Chase only in the last year (even 8 months from April 2014). Never did I receive a remark on the number of accounts I have in general or with Chase nor about the number of inquiries. Only last time, I called reconsideration and agent approved me and then told me that I might wanna slow the pace I am applying with for chase cards. Baclays on the other hand sucks lol. reconsideration told me about us airways card that she sees wht I am doing. I acted surprised and said is there something negative you see on my credit report, I always pay on time and managing huge amounts of credit responsibly. She said:" Sir, no need to push it further, I am used to do what you are doing currently" lol

Wow. Chase is being very strict about the SWA GCs reimbursements. Earlier I was threatened to possible have my last year's credit reversed "since it should've never been approved" - I thought that's being a bit overzealous. I hope the rep didn't reverse it. That would be bad!
