Unfortunately, Chase Freedom is no longer available to new applicants.
But Chase Freedom deals used to include a $200 sign up bonus, a 5% cash back bonus on certain purchases, and introductory 0% APRs for 15 months on purchases. Chase Freedom also sweetened its deals with a $0 annual fee.
To earn the $200 sign up bonus, you needed to spend $500 within the first 3 months of account opening. Once you met the spending requirement, it took 6-8 weeks for the bonus to show up in your account.
The 5% cash back bonus was limited to $1,500 spent in select categories per quarter. These categories changed quarterly too. Bonus category purchases that exceeded $1,500 in any quarter will earn 1% cash back, as were any purchases outside of the categories. To check bonus categories and activation deadlines (you had to activate the new category each quarter), you had to visit Chase’s 5% Cash Back Calendar. Purchases at grocery stores earned the 5% cash bonus in the first year, for the first $12,000 spent, without activation.
Chase Freedom’s 0% interest deal used to be 0% for 15 months on new purchases and the regular APR was 14.99% - 23.74% (V).
