Ritz Carlton Rewards Surprise, AF refunded

I was shocked to see that my card now has a -395 dollar balance. I was almost worried it was something bad but I see that they refunded my entire AF! The card is still open with a $1k CL because I moved a bunch of it over to the CSP. I hope it's not a bad sign.

 

I'm gonna see if I can redeem it for cash or something. And here I was thinking that jsucool76 was the only one to get a refund of his AF back. Thanks a lot Chase! I didn't even ask for it either.

Total CL: Around $168,750 not counting hidden TLs. FICOs in the 700-730 range.

Main cards: Macy's Amex: $24k, Lowe's, $17k, Chase Sapphire Preferred: $7k, Chase AARP: $5.2k, Chase Freedom: $5k, Chase British Airways: $5k, Discover It: $1.5k, Barclays Arrival: $2.5k, Sam's Club MC: $8.5k, Stash: $8k, Sam's Club: $10k, Wells Fargo Propel: $8k, Paypal Smart Connect: $4.9k, Amazon Store Card: $6k, Cabelas Club Visa: $5k, Nordstrom: $5k, CapOne Quicksilver: $2k

I dunno. I'll get the screencaps ready to prove it. 

 

I'm still using that card to pay HOV lane charges so there was a $20 charge on it recently. I might use another card for that from now on.

It just happened completely on its own. I didn't do anything. Maybe yours might have a refund too.

 

The best possible reason I can think of is that this is their way of convincing me to keep the card beyond the first year or maybe it was a glitch in the system.

Yeah I'd love to know how.  My AF just showed up on my statement.

Yes I did. I keep forgetting to call Ritz so I can have those 140k points converted to SW airline miles. I also still have the gift cards for Delta and Southwest Airlines so that's where the $300 credit went.
