===============================================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 doubt I'll even get the card by Wednesday. I was approved today (Friday).

If the reimbursable airline charge posts in 2014 (Say Dec 31) but reimbursement isn't requested until 2015, which year will my airline credit count toward?

This has been asked and answered about 10x in the last 5 pages on this thread.

curious about transaction date or posted date?
anyone tested yet?
Thanks

Really, because I've been following this thread daily for weeks and haven't seen this exact question come up. Different variations, but nowhere about actually requesting the credit in 2015 and having it credited to 2014 since posted charges were in 2014. Everything I see has people requesting on the 31st as soon as it posts which won't be an option for me.

Prove that I am a moron and reference the answer, please. I'm a humble man.

So my club upgrade certificates posted today under my Marriott Rewards account.

It lists this 3 times
RCC1 CLUB LEVEL UPGRADE UP TO 7 NTS

So that's good that by applying, while using my Marriott Rewards #, will successfully link that # and the Ritz Carlton into one account.

I am in an even worse situation. My card will not arrive until 12/31.
So the best for me is, transaction date in 2014.
wondering whether it is possible to get the credit.

Sorry for my confusion, but I have interest only with Marriott points. I read a big part of this thread (and similar big one on the Marriott forum). Can someone confirm that I will get 140K point in my Marriott account (provided during signup) if I get this card and fullfill the spending requirement?

Chase just informed that the offer I applied for was indeed 2 complimentary nights at a Tier 1-4. However, they also informed me that they will match the 140k points.

Ritz points are marriott points, so provided you follow the right link to the correct offer
you will get 140k marriott/ritz points.

Correct. I did not "convert/upgrade" my Marriott rewards account to a Ritz-Carlton rewards account.

I now have Marriott Gold courtesy of this card, and I expect the points to hit just fine.

To any newbies thinking about applying through this link. This has been confirmed by Chase to be an offer for 2 complimentary nights at any Tier 1-4 despite the fact that it says 140k points at the top. Buyer beware.

That's odd. I called two days ago to confirm that the *correct* offer is coded onto my account, and after conferring with "someone in marketing" while I was on hold, the rep was able to confirm that I have the 140k pts offer and not the 2 nights offer.

You'd be one of the few. Can you ask what the promo code is so maybe we can fix ours?

I have no idea. I used the link from above: https://www.theritzcarltonrewardscard.com/offer140k

Unless the CSR was lying to me... But I did explicitly confirm with her that it was 140k pts and not 2-night stays. I suppose I won't know for sure until I actually get the bonus.

The screenshot I took of that page, and the application page itself, show the following params in the URL:

CELL=6MBQ
PROMO=DF01
SPID=FBCY

Those are the same as what's up right now if you hit that link, so they haven't changed.
