Ritz card: Double Dip Restaurants 10X + $300

11

This is just a quick post to point out that there are two overlapping promotions for Ritz cardholders.  One of the two ends soon:

  1. Earn 10X at restaurants and gas stations on up to $3,500 spendYou must register by 9/15/20.  Promotion ends 9/30/20.
  2. Use the Ritz card’s $300 airline incidental fee reimbursements towards grocery store or restaurant purchases.  Promotion ends 12/31/20.

Both of the above promotions work at restaurants.  When I recently went on vacation, I brought my Ritz card along to use for all dining purchases.  Once those purchases posted, I sent a secure message to Chase:

Hi I understand that restaurant charges now qualify for the $300 airline incidental credits.  I have spent more than $300 at restaurants recently. Please credit my account accordingly. Thanks!

The first time I sent the message, the reply was to call.  That was surprising since I’ve never had to call before to get airline incidental fees reimbursed.  So, I figured that I just got a bad agent.  I tried again with the same message.  The second time worked!  A few days later my account showed that Chase had credited me with $300.

And, after my Ritz statement closed, I found the appropriate 10X bonus points in my Marriott account:

The Ritz card normally earns 3X for dining, so the middle line “RCR Visa – Air/Car/Dine Purchases” shows that I earned 1,001 points (from $333.43 spend).  The 10X promo promises a total of 10X points, so 7X more points can be found in the next line: “MB Chase Gas & Dining.”  There I earned 7 x 333.43 = 2,334 bonus points.

Summary

If you have the Ritz card and you haven’t yet earned your $300 in annual airline incidental fee reimbursements, now is a great time to do so!  Make sure to register for the 10X promo by 9/15 and spend $300 at restaurants by the end of this month in order to maximize these deals.
