Yes, Chase Freedom is very good for online shopping because it can be used at any merchant that accepts Visa and it offers plentiful rewards on online purchases.
More specifically, with this card you get 5% cash back on grocery store purchases for the first year (up to $12,000 spent), 5% cash back on up to $1,500 spent per quarter in bonus categories (which change every quarter and require activation), and 1% back on all other purchases.
Sometimes the bonus categories on Chase Freedom aren’t as useful for online shopping, but other times they will include things like Amazon.com, Target.com, Walmart.com, streaming services or mobile payments apps like Google Pay or Apple Pay.
Here’s how Chase Freedom gives you more on online shopping:
If you want to maximize the value of Chase Freedom for online shopping, be sure to take advantage of the “Shop Through Chase” benefit, too. To begin, log in to your Chase account on the Ultimate Rewards website and select your Chase Freedom. Then, select “Shop with Chase” from the Earn/Use dropdown menu at the top. From there, you’ll be able to see what deals are available with various retailers. Click on any store shown to be redirected to its official website. Then, shop normally, check out with your Chase Freedom, and you will receive the bonus rewards on your online shopping.
