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

Did you apply using your marriott rewards account #? Do you already have marriott status?
I connected with another service rep today and she had told me that all offers now are two complimentary nights instead of 140K, so please watch out for that if you do apply... It strange as it still says 140K on the offer page. She said they will get back to me in 7 to 10 days to see if they can honor the 140K offer...

I did not have an aacount with ritz or Marriott when I applied.

just wanted to add my experience - I applied thru the 140k link at the top of the wiki. They moved some credit around and approved me, but when I asked them to confirm the bonus, they stated I would get 2 free nights at any tier 1-4 property, after spending $3,000 in 3 months. When I looked it up on their website that is apparently worth 120k points. Definitely does not match the offer on their website right now which is 1 free night at a 1-4 after spending $2k.

I took a screenshot of the 140k offer before I applied using the link so I intend to fight it if they do not honor 140k points.

Oh wow this is crazy. I am still very anxious to apply but I think I should wait. But if I wait too long this offer may be taken down, but apparently this 140k offer doesn't even "exist". Hmmmmm

I would imagine that if the link is still active we have a good shot at getting the 140k points, but I've taken a screenshot just in case. We'll see what happens.

So I couldn't help myself and I just applied and got approved. I used my current Marriott Rewards #. I called to confirm the bonus and the lady said on their end it says 2 free nights.

I mentioned the 140k ofer and she said there was another offer that says "1 free night or 70k points". She admitted that the wording is confusing on their end, and it's essentially the same thing (2 free nights or 140k pts). She said hat in her end it doesn't say "1-4 certificates". Hmmmm.

Lastly she said that when I get the card to confirm what ofthe offer states in the welcome package...is that true that the welcome package lists the offer?

She said if it's not what I signed up for, to call back and they would take care of it. Seems like I got an overly optimistic person haha. Regardless, if they don't honor this 140k offer then I'll just cancel the card out right.

Just got our card a week ago…spent our annual travel credit on SW already. Called and just got approved for reimbursement for the annual travel credit and did confirm 140,000 miles after the annual spend. Will check the account to make sure the annual spent is credited back in 1 - 2 days per the rep. Thanks all for the information on this topic. I've read it all and keep reading…..

Awesome to hear you got credited already. What did you say when you called them?

What increments did you spend on Southwest Airlines to get successfully reimbursed and what did you tell them the charges were for?

Her earlier posts said she did four $75 eGC through SW. I purchased four $75 through Delta...the charges haven't posted yet but will update when they post and whether they are credited back.
