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

Another data point. RC points posted two days after statement closing date.

They also realize that limiting the card 1st year fee waived feature to the RC Residence Owners is a stupid idea because that greatly limited the pool of potential applicants. Therefore they changed their stance on this initial requirement as the applications coming in - it is safe to say, the non-owner applicants far outnumber the owner applicants and that crucial data point forces Chase to change its approach.

I applied for this card on 7/25 late evening and was approved the next morning around 9AM after Chase called me confirming some of my info. I already have 6 cards with Chase so they moved around one of credit lines. They are manually reviewing each application so don't expect to see an instant approval.

Card came today via UPS. Wrapped like a birthday gift! My fifth Chase card and each customer experience has been excellent.


Confirmed no fee first year and 70k after first use. If a cardholder stays in a Ritz, my calculations have you earning 17.5 points for every dollar spent (10 for rewards/5 for card/2.5 for Gold bonus on rewards). I have a 5 night stay coming up next week that will earn me 30k for the 4 night promotion + 17.5 for every dollar. Add the 70k for signup and I'm on my way to earning a quick trip to the Caymans this spring (in the club level of course)

Really happy I am in on this product.

Just had my 70,000 mile bonus credited to my account. My first statement just closed. I do currently have a Marriott Chase Business Visa that I have had for many years. Also completed my first airline trip and had some food and baggage fees credited. Unfortunately did not have my lounge card before my trip so was not able to check that out.

My wife applied for this card, and when Chase called, she wasn't around and didn't answer her phone. They haven't called back. Is there a reconsideration type number she should call that's unique to the RC Card? She can call the general Chase number but I was wondering if there's something specific for this.

How long has it taken most of the members here to receive the Lounge Club Select membership card after receiving their credit card? Thanks!

70k points are now in my account...

Hi RewardTraveler, just wonder if you have already received the Marriott Visa bonus before applying for this? Also did you receive these points only after your first statement (and how long after)?

I have also applied for this card and now waiting for the first statement. However, I have already made purchase and paid online, yet no points show up on my Ritz account, wondering if it's due to Marriott Visa. Thanks.

Also wonder if you have received the Ritz Club Lounge Pass or the Ritz Gold Membership card? How long does it take? Thanks very much for all the help. Have a great day

Points will show up in your marriott account after the first statement closes. This includes both the bonus points and your points from the first months purchases. It took about 2 weeks to get my lounge club card and missed out using it on my first trip. Had no problem getting baggage fees and onboard food purchases credited for my first flights.

Yeah, I received points from the Marriott Visa earlier this year. The points posted within days of my first statement, I wouldn't expect them before it closes, but no need to worry.

My Lounge Club card arrived 8 days after my welcome packet and my Gold card (Marriott in my case) arrived last week. My status on the Marriott website changed to Gold within a day or two of approval. If that has happened, I wouldn't worry too much about receiving the actual card.

Hope this helps...
