Chase Freedom Now Offering $200 Bonus (20,000 Ultimate Rewards for Many People)

Chase has increased the bonus on the Chase Freedom card from $100 to $200 after you spend $500 in 3 months (application link here). A bit of a refresher on the Freedom card:

– There’s no annual fee, which makes it a great card to just keep open to help with your credit score (you earn points on your score for having open, unused credit. You also earn points for having credit open for a longer period of time. Because there’s no fee, you can just keep it open forever).

– It’s 1% cash back on everything, though they offer rotating categories each quarter where you can earn 5% (it’s Restaurants and Lowe’s for this quarter – you max out at $1500 spend, or $75 bonus cash back).

– If you have a Chase Ink Bold, Chase Ink Plus, or Chase Sapphire Preferred, you can get 20,000 Ultimate Rewards points (in lieu of $200 straight cash back).

There used to be 35,000 point bonus offers floating around for this card years ago, but 20,000 points is as good as it’s been for the past couple of years. If you were waiting, I’d go for this (assuming it fits in your churn schedule).

  1. I stumbled onto this on the Chase website and applied, precisely because, as you said, this was the best bonus offered the past few years.

    Following up on your Tom Vu post, I find it interesting that this increased bonus – a 100% increase, as opposed to the 20% increase in the Ink Bold/Plus bonus – has received very little play. I certainly understand the business model that supports travel bloggers doing what they do. But it also has struck me in recent months that there’s been a noticeable shift in the tone of some of these blogs. It sometimes does get overwhelming.

    Thank you for your unique approach in your blog.
