$200 CASH BONUS FOR CHASE FREEDOM – NO ANNUAL FEE CARD
Chase has launched a “Limited Time” cash bonus for their Chase Freedom card which is a great no annual fee keeper card. If you don’t have one in your wallet or drawer, it’s a must and now is a great time with the bonus doubled. Generally they offer a $100 cash bonus. It’s especially nice when a lender offers an easy cash bonus with only a $500 minimum spend and no annual fee forever.
- For a limited time, earn a $200 bonus after you make $500 in purchases in your first 3 months from account opening
- 0% Intro APR for 15 months on purchases and balance transfers. After the intro period, a variable APR of 13.99%-22.99%.
- 5% Cash Back on up to $1,500 spent between October 1 and December 31, 2013 at Amazon.com and select department stores
- You’ll enjoy new 5% categories every 3 months like gas stations, restaurants and Amazon.com. It’s free and easy to activate your bonus each quarter!
- Unlimited 1% Cash Back on all other purchases
- No annual fee
There are many great rewards credit cards that I recommend getting primarily for the sign up bonus but the Chase Freedom is a card you want to keep and continue to earn cash back for spending money on your great adventures. You can earn 5% cash back up to $1,500 each quarter. That is $300 annually just on the 5% not including your ability to earn 1% unlimited all year long. The 0% APR on purchases and balance transfers is great too but I’m hoping you pay your credit card off every month like I do and don’t have debt you need to use the balance transfer option for. If you aren’t quite there, this might be a great advantage to save some money on unpaid debt you have on another credit card for the next 15 months.
Bottom line, the Chase Freedom is the type of card you get to build and keep long term credit history with Chase. Use the card throughout the year to maximize the 5% bonus category and earn extra cash when you need some. No need to ever cancel it as there is no annual fee and it helps earn you points on your credit score for long term history.
