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

DH bought 2 Delta e-gift cards for $150 each on 12/30. Sent SM on 1/1 requesting reimbursement for Delta charges. Finally got a reply today saying they issued the $300 credit as requested and it should appear on the Jan. statement.^

YMMV

Hi,

Anybody know if modify ticket fee eligible for the airline credit?

I have $160 fee when I modified two tickets from BA. I called JPM, and they said they need to call BA to verify if that is qualified since there's no comments on my transection. I told them this is for modify the tickets, the CS told me that they can not reimburse buying tickets fee. I told them that's not for buying a ticket, I did not book my ticket with RC card. The CS told me only seat upgrade, baggage fee, lunge club membership fee, in flight entertainment qualify the airline credit. Then she just call BA and told me to hold for a well, after 10+ mins, She come back and told me the number that BA provide is not available. So I just told her I will try later, she said fine and this conversation will be noted on my transection.

So I am scared to call them again, want to make sure if modification ticket qualify for the credit before. From the T&C, I did not find that, but I think it should be same as seat upgrade. That's why I called them first time.

Why are you scared to call them again?

It sounds like your english is not very good. Are you sure that the CSR understood what you were trying to say?

I believe that you are referring to "change fees". If you call them "modify ticket fees" the agent is unlikely to understand you.

Exactly! That's "change fees", I am not sure how she understood what I am saying, but the only comment she made is buying ticket is not qualified. the reason I am scared is if there's any misunderstood between the conversation, CSR will deny the reimbursement and make a note on my account.

Back to my concerns, will "change fees" qualify for the reimbursement?

I have no idea. I'd call back, and explain that you aren't sure that the last agent understood you, and say that the charges were for change fees.

The worst that they can say is no. It's not like you are lying to them so I don't see anything negative coming from this.

I think Chase is delayed on responding to their SM's. If you sent an SM in, I would just wait for a reply.

Same here (sent mine on Friday afternoon). Definitely not calling them unless they deny the reimbursement. I can wait.

Got the card today -- metal card in a really really nice package. Pretty impressive.

Called them up to ask a few questions and they agreed to the 140k points rather than the 2 free nights.

I believe at this point that they converted everyone who applied through that promo to the 140k because they realized their error and fixed it.

Applied for me and wife today. Got "decision in 10 days" response. Does anyone know toll free number to check on the status of this and hopefully get this resolved without waiting 10 days? Thanks!

This is a long shot, … but, wondering if the annual travel funds can be used for rail purchase with Amtrak? IS this a ridiculous question? Does anyone know? Thanks!

It would've taken you less time to glance at the fine print than it did to write this post...

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.

It would've taken you less time to simply answer "no" than to quote that sentence and bold certain parts.
