Ritz Carlton Credit Card – How did we do this? Followed this 6 step process:
Step 1: We each applied for and were approved for the Chase Ritz Carlton credit card.
Step 2: We each charged $5,000 to our respective credit cards within the first 90 days after being approved.
Step 3: After receiving the cards in the mail, we set up our Ritz Carlton Rewards accounts which are really Marriott loyalty program accounts.
Step 4: We waited for the billing cycle to end to allow JP Morgan time to tell Marriott/Ritz Carlton that we met our $5,000 minimum spend requirement. Once this was done, the reward certificates were deposited into our account – we received an e-mail confirmation.
Step 5: Based on our travel goals, we chose a Ritz Carlton hotel (tier 1-4) to use our free nights at.
Step 6: I called the hotel to complete the reservation.
