===============================================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.

Yes, that's what I meant. I was thinking "published non-corporate" in my head.

Thank you for your information. They called this morning and said I was approved. If in the future I find something else that chase has your info will be helpful.

So I am:

1. Not a RC Residences owner; and
2. Never had any sort of Marriott card.

The consensus seems to be that I could get this card and first year waived, with at least 50k points, and maybe even 70k. Does that seem right?

Thinking about doing another mini app o rama today or sometime soon.

I'm in the same situation. I applied a couple of weeks ago and was approved. I confirmed the bonus with the CSR and now I'm waiting for the statement to close.

Good luck!

I consider this a good offer. wife and I just applied for one each. Got the normal "we will send you a letter about your application..." type of response. Don't worry that doesn't mean rejected. Called in about an hour and spoke with a credit analyst and was approved while I waited since they could see the app and had me on the phone. I did move some avail credit from a card I don't use, but it was a choice.

They repeated the offer that I will receive 70,000 points after first purchase. In the past I have had a Marriott Visa, but don't right now. It's been a while and I've been getting a lot of emails from Marriott with new card offers, but this one is the best. At some locations this is worth well over $650 just for one night.

I take advantage of these type offers when they come along. In fact, just got back from another 2 weeks free (Air & hotel) vacation in South Pacific all from credit card point accumulation. Every year we travel free. Keep your credit great and the opportunities seem endless. takes some work and points spreadsheets, but when you take a $12,000 vacation for free the 'work' is worth it.

so how did you go about it. i have the marriott chase card that i got 70k with and will probably have to cancel it to get this one. won't that throw up a red flag? my marriott card comes up for renewal in sept so i was going to cancel it no matter what.
also if i do get it, do i just apply with my marriott rewards number so these new points will go in the same account?
thanks.
ps looks like i'll need to pull the trigger on this on soon as it ends 7/25

Called today to get my first airline reimbursements. I had some on board purchases and and a baggage fee from Delta for a few flights over the past couple weeks. Total was $51.50, with individual charges of $2.00-$25. Purchases have already been credited to my account. I did ask exactly what kind of fees are covered and was told anything you buy on the plane. I asked about change fees and was told no. However, when the CSR was looking at the charges on my account he made a comment about the charges being under $100, so it is possible that any airline charges under $100 may be reimbursed. If I have money left towards the end of the year I may try buying a club pass and see if it is reimbursed.

Usually that (less than $100) is the criterion they use.

I had BA award tickets tax and phone booking fees ($70 total) reimbursed so I don't think they are looking at what kind of fee it is as long as it is under $100.
