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

So there is no need to charge the ticket price to be eligible for the credit?

Application Down?

Looking to apply. Link brings you to the details but when you click Apply Now, it says Offer Unavailable.

Any alternative links for the 70K and first year waived?

Something I just noticed on my statement you still get the 2x points credit for the airline purchases that are credited back.

I think the landing page is still up but the promo already expired. Note it says "Reserve by July 25" on the promo. Perhaps, someone should change the thread's title to reflect that.

Okay wow read the whole freaking thread and I am more confused then ever if people who have the Marriott CC now still got the 70K bonus?

Those who had to cancel there Marriott CC did you "HAVE" to cancel the Marriott CC or could you have moved credit over from another Chase CC?

I got the Marriott 70K offer in Nov still have that CC, and I want to keep it due to 1 free night every year. I also got another Chase CC a few months ago for a total of 3 Chase CC. I would have probably went for this 1 if someone for sure confirmed still getting the bonus while having a Marriott CC. Wish it was still available. Hopefully it comes back soon. But I am also waiting for British Airways 100K offer to come back. If they are back at the same time I will miss 1 of the 2 I want again. (Stinks I always miss the good offers. This 1, British Airways 100K, 75K Citi AA X2 last year.)

Not sure what you are asking. I canceled my marriott chase card to get the rc . I gave them my marriott rewards account number when I got the rc chase card on the ap and the points automatically posted to the same reward account._

Kicking myself for not applying for this one. For some reason, I always assume this came with the annual fee for the first year like it usually does. Wonder if I applied for the regular card now, if I could ask them for this offer (even though it's expired)? Don't think I'd count on getting the first year waived.

The accounts are the same. The people who closed their Marriott Visa Card to get the ritz card still have their original marriott rewards account and that's where the 70k points will post to.

Not everyone had to cancel the Marriott Visa. I have both and got the 70k points bonus for each.

Looks like if you already have a Marriott Credit Card, you won't get the bonus on this one. Bummer.
ouch

To clairify I had to cancel my marriott card because I have too many accounts open to get the rc. But if you do not have this problem you could get both. The reason I was so happy was because the ape said if you had to marriott card you would not get the points which was not correct in my case so I was able to get the 70k added to my existing rewards account
Would like to do the same for my wife's acconut. Any idea if this will be offered again or a work around to still use it? Also everyone be sure to cancel before the annual fee kicks in, definitely not worth it to me.
