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

How about the online payment for (checked-in) hold baggage with the ticket in the budget European airlines, such as Easyjet?
I really wonder they separate baggage fees from tickets or not.

Or maybe in-flight merchandise of AA/UA is a better choice?
BTW, is in-flight merchandise counted?

Can the $300 airline incidentals credit on this card be applied to change/cancellation fees for a Delta flight booked on points? I have to cancel my/my wife's cabo flights due to the hurricane, and don't have status at Delta such that the $150 per ticket cancellation fee will be waived. would be awesome for me to use the $300 from my Ritz card on this.

any advise/experience greatly appreciated.

Limited experience with the airline fee credit so far, but the easy answer is just to call and ask to have a charge reversed. They did for me no problem with ~$150 worth of charges for booking a partner award through AA, and if you push the limits too hard, the worst that will happen is that they say no and you come back later with something else. Not worth worrying too much in advance. Just pay what you need to pay and call it in.

I wonder if United Mileage Accelerator Fees would be refundable, assuming the fees are paid to United and not points.com.

T&C's are a bit vague and contradicting especially on hotel credit. Does it only apply at marriot/RC properties?

And does anyone know if you can pool your points to be able to redeem air + hotel package?

Finally got my card (the 140,000 paying the annual fee). Now to add my spouse on the deal to get twice the points (and pay two annual fees), do I just call in the first number or use the number that came with the box? Thank you, flyer talk!

Just some quick questions, when the bonus points will be posted to account? The spending requirement is $2k in 3 months for both 70k/140k, right?

I was approved for the card with 70k points and 1st year free promotion last month. Got the statement on 9/17 with over $2100+ purchase. Statement did not mention anything about bonus 70k points

Moreover, the calculation of points seems to be wrong. I had a stay at a Renaissance paid by RC card during the billing cycle (hotel bill is over $400 and booked though official site). The purchase was not counted for 5x points. I ended up with 2700 pts on this statement. They only gave me double pts on restaurant spending...

I thought any Marriott hotel stay should be eligible to earn 5x points, am I right?

You'd probably need to call the original number (the application number listed in this thread.) The only number I saw in the box was the same on the back of the card, which is customer service for those that are already card members. Your spouse would be not be a member if they hadn't yet applied.

Thank you, cmhawkins, you are exactly right. I was hoping maybe it would be a quicker way in coming in via my membership but no. I love this card only anyone else have trouble using it at the gas station machines?
