Chase Freedom is good for online shopping because it can be used at any merchant that accepts Visa and it offers plentiful rewards on online purchases. To start, the card gives up to 5% cash back in bonus categories that change every quarter. In addition, Chase Freedom participates in the Ultimate Rewards program, which means cardholders can use the “Shop through Chase” feature. This program offers extra rewards when shopping online at over 350 participating merchants.
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. And even if the current bonus categories don’t reward online shopping, purchases will always get at least 1% back.
