I had previously written about the offline 140k Chase Ritz Carlton credit card and I wanted to share some updates on this card since I’ve applied and used it.
If you are wondering what this card it made of, its stainless steel and pretty thick. Some potential uses include scrapping ice off your car windshield or impressing your friends or your waiter/waitress at a restaurant 😉
If you don’t have a Ritz Carlton #, you can use your Marriott Rewards # and get these points deposited here instead.
If you have had or currently have the Marriott Chase card, you can still apply to this Ritz card and get Marriott bonus points. Mine have already posted to my Marriott account.
Your club level upgrades will also be included in your Marriott account if you used this # instead of a Ritz Carlton # however, they can only be used for Ritz Carlton properties.
You get a $300 incidental airline credit per calender year but you have to call 1-855-896-2222 and speak to someone to get these refunded. All they ask is what you used it for and they will process a statement credit in a few days. Hint: I’ve had gift cards refunded…you just need to say that it is incidental related ei, lounge access, upgrade or baggage fee etc.
You will get a Lounge Club membership for you and a guest which can be used at any of there locations listed here regardless of who your flying and class of service. You need your Lounge Club card to access the clubs and it takes a few weeks for it to be mailed to you.
If you and a spouse are applying for this card, read the Miles Professors post on Marriott Vacation Packages as a great vacation option.
