Chase Freedom® Visa Review – $100 Bonus Cash Back

by Ryan Guina

Chase just announced the new Chase Freedom® Visa – $100 Bonus Cash Back offer, available for a limited time. This $100 cash bonus offer is available as a statement credit to all new cardholders who apply for and are approved for a new Chase Freedom® Visa and spend $500 within the first 3 months. The cash bonus is paid as a statement credit, which means you can apply it directly toward your balance, leaving you that $100 to spend or save elsewhere.

Chase Freedom® Visa – $100 Cash Back Bonus

A $100 bonus is a nice deal and this is reasonably easy to achieve – spending $500 in three months isn’t difficult. Just take it to the grocery store and make sure you have the cash to pay it off each month and you’re there!

In addition to the cash bonus, the Chase Freedom offers one of the most generous cash rewards programs on the market, with all purchases earning at least 1% cash back, and the opportunity to earn 5% cash back in rotating categories throughout the year. A 0% Intro APR on balance transfers from other credit cards and purchases gives an extra incentive to apply for this card.

You can redeem your cash back for cash, gift cards, statement credits, or make purchases through the online store. It’s easy to do all of this while inside to your Chase account online.

The only downside I can think of with this card is the fact that the 5% cash back isn’t automatic each month – you need to opt in to the 5% cash rewards offer each quarter.  That said, it is incredibly easy to do this online, or by calling the customer service department. In fact, I recently called the Chase CSR department and they reminded me about the quarterly bonus and activated it for me while I was on the phone with them. I received a confirmation email from them about 10 minutes later stating my quarterly bonus had been activated.

As a Chase customer for over 5 years, I can also say their customer service is awesome. I have never had a long wait on hold and have never had a problem getting any customer service issues resolved.

Who is this card for? The Chase Freedom Visa is an excellent general purpose cash rewards credit card and is a good option for anyone with excellent credit and who regularly pays their bills in full. The $100 cash back bonus is only available for a limited time, so if you want to take advantage of this offer, apply for the Chase Freedom® Visa – $100 Bonus Cash Back today.

If I apply for this card or any credit card, what kind of a limit will I have on the card? I am a veteran.

Jim, each case is unique. If approved, your limit will depend on your credit profile, including your credit history, score, and current available lines of credit.
