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

http://www.marriott.com/rewards/usepoints/morepack.mi. Gotta call the # at the top of the page.

It says they transfer the miles to the airline miles account matching the name on your marriott account. When are you guys getting married? You can transfer your Marriott points to his Marriott account when he is your spouse with no issues and then he could definitely get the SW miles.

Appreciate the info! I don't see where it says the airlines mile account has to match names? We're not getting married until May but would love to transfer them sooner to get that companion pass!

Click View next to the package you're interested in, then click Terms and Conditions and it's #4.

Bought 2X$150 SWA CG same day that I got the card 12/24/14. Called on Friday the 26th when the charges clear and was credited back yesterday 12/29/2014. Only thing CS asked me if I used it to buy a plane ticket which I answered with the truth. That I had not bought a ticket.

I received my card a few minutes ago and bought 4 x $75 United gift registry contributions. There has been reports of this working here and here. Now I'm just hoping it's still the case, that the transactions post by tomorrow and that using the $300 on the same day won't raise flags. Worst case it doesn't work but I don't really mind United credit as I'm a United hub captive.

PS : holy crap that card is HEAVY. I have the CSP and Marriott cards already but this one is just as heavy as both of them combined. Impressive. Too bad the rewards suck so I won't ever carry it on me.

last update - just received confirmation via secure message that I applied for a 140k point offer (used the 140k link in the wiki):

With so many people who just got the card and trying to take advantage of this perk in such a tight window, it caused chase's attention. I wish I could have requested it a couple of days ago.
What incidental on SOUTHWEST would be that much? Bags are free.

3rd plus bags are $75/each. Overweight bag (regardless of #) is $75. Pet fee is $95. Upgrade fee to Business Select can be whatever the difference in cost is. All of those are covered incidental fees.

It's easy to get up there in incidentals on Southwest. But if they aren't legitimately incidentals, I'd keep it lower to avoid raising questions that you can't answer.

Yeah but tough to get $300 exactly I guess unless you were taking 12 bags with you and checking them.

It's also been noted in here that that high of a reimbursement has required receipts in the past. I paid $310 for an upgrade and had to submit the receipt showing it to Chase to get the credit back this fall.

The moral is buy it in $50-75 increments, $100 max.

I got two $150 through... but to be safe.. I agree that $100 is the best bet.

Bad news. They caught up!
I'd made 3 purchases of $75/$75/$150 for SW gc.

I just did HUCA twice and was told both times that the $75 charges were for gift cards!
Was told the gc transactions starts with 5260xxxxxxx on the account and that Chase has been having some confusions since the past few days. Now the SW charges clearly show as gc.
So between me and my wife's card, am out of $600 :-(
Ah.....it's the game we play!
