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

That's what I would do. I literally have no use for two free nights at an RC hotel

I doubt he needs to threaten anything. The CSR was most likely confused.

Well if that is the case I'm happy I got my AF waived. :P

Even so, though, 2 nights at a RC is worth about 400$...if not more, depending on which it is.


I'd agree with VegasGambler and say the rep was confused. The page lists "140k points, enough for two nights at any RC" so it could be confusing if they misread it.

I also bought $75 southwest e-gift cards, 2x$75, I'm waiting for them to clear to see if it works, then I'll do another 2x$75. Hopefully it will clear tomorrow.

Thanks for the reply. I will post something once I have an update. I am curious to see if this has happened to anyone else...

Regardless of confusion on what the offer said, you would think the offer would automatically submit correctly once the application is submitted. I doubt the agents control / change the spend bonus per application based on what they think it says lol

I read on the website millionmilesecrets that someone else had this also happen, hence why I am hesitant to apply. I want the pts or nothing else!

Did you apply using your marriott rewards account #? Do you already have marriott status?

Alright I successfully got 2x$75 southwest e-giftcards reimbursed. Will do another 2 tomorrow.

and about the sign up bonus



I spoke with the JP Morgan Executive Office today while getting my airline reimbursements processed and was told by the agent that the sign up offer given to us was NOT the one listed on the application/landing page.

We were given an offer for 2 free nights at any tier 5 RC as opposed to an offer for 140,000 points. The agent told me he would speak to the marketing team immediately and update me via email ensuring me that I would receive the bonus I signed up for, but I would suggest anyone who applies through this link call the jp morgan priority services line and ask them about the sign up bonus. (copied from my marriott insiders post, so sorry if some of it is redundant)

How long from time of purchase of eGC did it take to post on your statement so you could request the credit?

I just called and have the SAME DAMN PROBLEM. I applied through the link on this wiki and JP Morgan says my offer was 2 complimentary nights at a Tier 1-4 RITZ!!!!! ...!!!!

I told her that wasn't what I asked for and that it should have been 140K points and she said she would send the request to their marketing team and I have to wait 7-10 business days to hear back.

WOW... I'm going to absolutely lose it if I don't get what I applied for. Not paying $395 for some certificates.

Wow, that is surprising. I guess I was wrong -- the CSR wasn't confused.

Wow. This is rather unacceptable. I guess I will sit tight and not apply, until I hear back some positive news from you all.

I as well do not want or need 2 certificates. I have more flexibility with pts plus it'll count towards my lifetime status

I feel ya. My AF was waived so I can't argue with em too much, but I want them 140k points, and chase has never been one to say "No" to me. lol. We'll make it happen. There's a lot of people from FT, MyFico, and MRI that have all apped for this card. Plus the image CLEARLY said "140,000 points which can be used for..."

Legit. Their marketing team screwed something up.

Do you see your reimbursement posted to your account? I called but the CS said it will be posted to my account in 2-3 billing cycles...
