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

I got $50 reimbursed for United gift registry. Did it through SM. I just got my first statement and it did say United gift registry on it.

I believe offically there is a fee, but i was able to bring in two guest for free at the FCO lounge for showers since the Alitalia next door didn't have them. But at SIN guest was only allowed with a fee.

Do AU on this card get the same Lounge Club benefits, when not traveling with the primary user, like with the Amex Plat?

Anyone tried some larger denomination gift cards yet? I was thinking of trying $100 from AA.

$300

I bought a $300 american airlines e gift certificate after seeing what the charge showed up as on my Platinum amex card. Waited one billing cycle and called in. The agent did ask me what it was for. I was fully credited for the charge but YMMV.

I was credited for the following:

2 AA charges of ~$28/each for Main Cabin Extra seat upgrades
~$50 for Southwest Airlines for a charge in relation to bringing a pet on board a flight.

Was the pet charge a partial reimbursement since that was all you had left for the year? If not, how did you get your pet on for less than $95?

I got a $40 delta exit row upgrade and a $55 delta e gift cert reimbursed. So I could do a couple hundred more in delta gc's but then my question is what do I do with the gc's haha? Where's the best place to get rid of/sell them? I never fly delta and I have a ton of points so never need cash for travel...

Was denied access at the lounge in Nassau this morning. Paid with my RC card and will ask for the fee back. Lady was adamant the card did not apply but the lounge is listed as participating.

I provided my marriott rewards number when I applied over the phone and my account showed as gold by the time the card arrived.

Hi,

I forgot to provide my Marriott account # when apply for the Ritz credit card. So they assigned me a new Ritz #. So my points all went to the Ritz account so is the gold status. If I ask to merge my Marriott and Ritz account into one (keeping Marriott account instead), will my Marriott account have the gold status and will all the points be transferred to Marriott?

The reason I want to keep the Marriott account is the current 20% bonus AA/US Airway and Marriott point transfer promo. Will I receive the 20% bonus mile if I use the Ritz account for converting the points to miles?

thanks!

Yes, you can merge both into your Marriott account.
