Chase Ritz-Carlton Terminates the $100 Visa Infinite Airfare Benefit Without Notice
Visa and Chase have suddenly removed the Visa Infinite $100 airfare benefit when buying 2+ tickets effective immediately on the Ritz-Carlton Visa Infinite card.
Effective 1/15/20, your Ritz Carlton Visa Infinite card no longer offers the Visa Discount Air Benefit. Air itineraries booked via the Visa Discount Air Benefit prior to 1/15/20 will still be honored and valid for travel. For full Terms & Conditions and FAQs please visit www.visa.com/discountair. If you need servicing on your existing Visa Discount Air itinerary, please contact the airlines directly for assistance as Concierge will no longer have access to your itinerary. Thank you
The benefit was removed from the City National Bank Visa Infinite card effective 1/1/20 – they gave us advance warning on that. They’ve now suddenly removed the benefit on the Chase Ritz card as well effective 1/15/20.
There were some other Visa Infinite cards which had the bonus, including the UBS Visa Infinite and SunTrust Private Wealth Visa Infinite. The UBS card is showing as not having that benefit any more (I’m unsure when that change went into effect), while the Suntrust card seems to still have the benefit.
It’s really surprising that they removed this benefit without notice. This is a big hit to the value of the Ritz card.
