No, there is no Chase Freedom Flex 10% Amazon deal. It used to be a 10% cash back promotion on Amazon purchases back in 2015, but that was a one-time offer. There is no such offer with Chase Freedom Flex card now, and it’s not clear whether there will be a Chase Freedom Flex 10% Amazon deal in the future.
In 2020, Chase Freedom Flex offered Amazon as a bonus category during Q3, but only gave the standard 5% cash back.
Here’s what Chase Freedom Flex currently offers:
Earn a $200 Bonus after you spend $500 on purchases in your first 3 months from account opening.
5% cash back on up to $1,500 in combined purchases in bonus categories each quarter you activate. Enjoy new 5% categories each quarter!
5% cash back on travel purchased through Chase Ultimate Rewards®, our premier rewards program that lets you redeem rewards for cash back, travel, gift cards and more
3% cash back on drugstore purchases and dining at restaurants, including takeout and eligible delivery service, and unlimited 1% cash back on all other purchases.
No minimum to redeem for cash back. You can choose to receive a statement credit or direct deposit into most U.S. checking and savings accounts. Cash Back rewards do not expire as long as your account is open!
While there is no Chase Freedom Flex 10% Amazon bonus right now, there is one other Chase Freedom Flex Amazon deal to take advantage of. Through the “Shop with Points” program, cardholders can spend their Chase Freedom Flex rewards with Amazon at a rate of $0.80 in redemption value.
You can switch your Chase Freedom card to Chase Freedom Flex by calling (302) 594-8200 or the number on the back of your card.
Keep in mind that in order to benefit from the Freedom Flex’s signup bonus, you must separately apply for the card. Switching from one Chase product to another won’t give you the opportunity to earn a welcome bonus.… read full answer
Yes, you can have both Chase Freedom Unlimited and Chase Freedom Flex. Having both the Freedom Unlimited and Freedom Flex cards can be a good idea, because their rewards programs work well together and neither card has an annual fee.
The Chase Freedom Unlimited card has a high base earning rate – 1.5% cash back – and it offers up to 5% cash back in bonus categories that don’t change. On the other hand, the Chase Freedom Flex card gives 5% cash back on up to $1,500 spent per quarter in rotating bonus categories, but as little as 1% on other purchases. So, you can get the best of both worlds if you have both cards and simply use whichever will give you the better rewards rate for each transaction you make.… read full answer
Finally, it’s important to note that even though there’s no official limit to how many Chase cards you can have, Chase does reportedly have a so-called “5/24” rule. This means that if you’ve opened five or more credit cards from any issuer in the past 24 months, Chase will not approve you for a new card. So, before applying for the Chase Freedom Unlimited or the Chase Freedom Flex card, make sure you haven’t opened too many new credit card accounts recently. In addition, if you’re planning to apply for both cards, try to space out your applications.
You can get the Chase Freedom Flex bonus of $200 by spending $500 in the first 3 months. This card, though, also gives 5% on up to $1,500 spent per quarter in bonus categories. Both Chase Freedom Flex bonuses are fairly easy to earn, but require some very specific steps to get them. And that may include doing a bit of waiting.… read full answer
Here’s how to get each Chase Freedom Flex bonus:
Initial bonus: $200 for spending $500 in the first 3 months.
Quarterly bonus: 5% on the first $1,500 spent in bonus categories every three months. Cardholders must “activate” new categories every quarter.
It’s worth noting that while the Chase Freedom Flex bonus rewards are advertised as cash back, they’re actually points that you can trade for cash at a rate of 1 cent per point. The card’s bonus points can also be traded for gift cards or travel at a rate of 1 cent per point. Just remember to allow 1-2 billing cycles for Chase Freedom Flex bonus points to post to your account. If it’s been longer than that, you can always call the number on the back of your card to ask about it.
