The Chase Freedom grace period is at least 21 days after the close of a billing cycle. Chase Freedom’s grace period gives cardholders at least three weeks to pay their statement balance in full before interest begins to accrue. The grace period ends on the payment due date, after which interest applies to any remaining balance at the card’s regular APR of 14.99% - 23.74% (V).
You can lose the Chase Freedom grace period if you don’t pay your balance in full during any given month. When the grace period is not in effect, new purchases accrue interest immediately after being made. To regain Chase Freedom’s grace period after losing it, pay the monthly bill in full for two months in a row.
