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

Also, you can always search within the thread to find the original posts where people gave the info that was translated to the wiki, it may have more nuance. Personally, I'm in the same position as you with wanting to score 2x the reimbursement for one Annual Fee. I think I will buy a few things that have been mentioned as definitely working as save the experimenting for 2015.

My question (I know I need to read the thread) is whether you actually have to call in to get reimbursed.

I guess I'll be going for SW then since I'm not gonna drive to the airport to buy giftcards.

And yes, you need to call in.

Won't work if you emailed via online customer service? (I'll try that when I get my card, and report back.)

I'm sure you can do it that way, but in the benefit guide i saw online (I'll have my physical one with my card tomorrow, finally) there was a specific number for airline redemptions.

It'll prob be quicker on the phone as well, as the secure messages say "we will get back to you in 24 hours" and it always takes like 3 days for me to hear back from them.

How many days does it take to get here after the card shows up in online profile? Mine showed up this morning, they told me all cards are rush delivered but i'm leaving for the rest of the year on Sunday and I don't think UPS delivers on Saturday so I need it by Friday. CSR told me 3-5 days just now and it is not showing up that I have a package scheduled for delivery

Edit: CSR confirmed delivery by Friday.

Mine showed up two complete business days after my account showed up, but I had a weekend in the middle of that too.

Got approved after shifting credit from an older card that I don't use and closing it out. The verification person I was transferred to couldn't confirm the terms of the bonus. Has anyone who has applied for 140k offer via the public link been able to confirm that the bonus is good?

annual credit

Anyone knows what this annual credit mean?

Is it by transaction date? or by transaction post date? or by reimbursement request date? or reimbursement post date?

I'm not sure if it's the best, but I have my sights set on 2 nights at the Ritz Carlton in the Roppongi District in Tokyo.

Actually, I'd like to collect another 400k or so pts and do one of their 7 nights + airline pts packages, but, since I don't plan to actually pay to stay at the Ritz I don't see how that's going to happen for me.

I'm so mad at myself. Earlier in the year, I collected the 70K marriott bonus not even knowing that 140K ritz would be possible in the future. So I converted my 70k to airline miles. So mad. I could have had 210 and only needing another 70 for 5 nights at the Ritz Central Park (I've never been to New York). I feel like punching myself in the face.

Does anyone know if I convert my Marriott account to a ritz account to get this deal, will I loose the benefits from my chase Marriott cards (elite nights from purchases)?

Evening folks,
I just got this (really fancy and heavy) card, and bought my southwest gift cards in $75.00 increments. I am assuming I can go ahead tomorrow and request the annual travel credit for this 2014 year….? Is it too soon to do this since we just activated the card today? Thanks!
(BTW, this card is in my hubby's name…the arrival package and box was sooooo NICE, he thought it was a Christmas gift for him!) They DO impress!
