Chase Freedom Unlimited $200 Offer

The Offer

Direct link to offer (refresh if you see the old $150 offer)

  • Sign up bonus of $200 after you spend $500 on purchases within the first three months of card membership on the Chase Freedom Unlimited card

Our Verdict

Most readers won’t be eligible for this card due to the 5/24 rule. If you are eligible it might make sense to apply for another Chase card instead (e.g Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Sapphire Reserve) and then downgrade to this card at a later stage if you value the 1.5x points earning. That being said if you do want this card, I’d personally wait until affiliate links start showing this offer (usually within a day or two) and then you should be apply through Affinityy and get a further $30. We’ve also seen a bonus of $300 on this card previously as well. As always if you have any questions about Chase, read this post first.

Freedom is $150. Thoughts on applying for this one and PC’ing to a freedom?

If you were to chose between this and the business ink unlimited card (50,000 bonus), thoughts?

Personally I would chose both. After a year you can PC the regular unlimited to another freedom. Or keep that and PC the business unlimited to another CIC or CIP.

Thanks! PC wasn’t an option I considered but that’s good to know

I have been doing something recently, wonder if its ethical with Chase.
I have 3 Freedoms (to max out the 5%) Now whenever I wanna transfer UR points to (Lets say) Hyatt, I upgrade one freedom to Sapphire Preffered, 10 days later annual fee shows up, a few days later I downgrade back to Freedom, is that something I could do every 4-6 months or so?

I would not do that repeatedly unless you are willing to risk loss of points and banking relationship.

Sounds like a great way to get Chase to ban you for life. But I’m sure they’ll never notice what you’re doing – they’re all really stupid, and nobody from Chase ever reads blogs, so I’m sure you’ll be fine.

Brilliant plan. Let us know how it works out!

You think you could outsmart the system but the system outsmarts you! I would not risk a shutdown from Chase if they have eyes on your account.

why not just get a no fee Sapphire? you can downgrade from Sapphire preferred to a no fee one and transfer points that way without risking a shut down.

You need the preferred to transfer UR to Chase partners.

I’ll advise you much nicer than others, you really should stop doing that because they will catch on.

Ill wait for the $300 offer to pop up again. I pc’d my CFU to a CSP in June(which I might re pc to the CSR soon) as I dont have $4000 to spend in 4 months. $1000-$2000 is my TOP limit. This strategy is my way of getting a start until i’m in a place where I can spend $4k in 3 months. Have to wait until May or June to get the bonus on the CFU if it has the 24 month language anyway so i might as well wait as long as possible for the $300 offer.

Yeah with 5/24 in play I don’t see a HUGE rush.

Wonder if this will apply to referral links? I have a friend I’d like to refer but it still shows $150 thru that link.

I need to get a new credit card by Dec 15, is that long enough for Chase to get the card to me. Assuming I’m approved of course…

You can send a secure message to have it expedited. I have my Ink Preferred Expedited and received it in two days in Delaware.

Does the Chase Freedom (not CFU) have bigger sign up bonuses ever?

Gareth

IMO the biggest ever CFU open bonus was the 2X for first year.

Does chase stopped matching higher bonus ?
Below is the reply received from Chase when I sent a secure message to match for unlimited card applied 2 weeks ago
“I’ll be happy to review your inquiry about matching the
new $200 sign up bonus points offer for opening a Chase
Freedom Unlimited account.
XXX, let me clarify that were are unable to match
this specific sign-up bonus offer currently displayed at
“creditcards.chase.com/freedom-credit-cards”. Our credit
card offers vary and change, and new ones become available
on a regular basis. We hope you’ll continue to check with

Affinityy still shows $150 signup bonus

Dave

I’ve also been checking Affinityy each day for this.
Is there an alternative to them for extra bonus?

Kevin

I referred someone for CFU. If they ask Chase to match the higher offer, will that void my referral?

I love my Chase Freedom Unlimited card! In addition to the easy to get $150 bonus (https://creditcards.chase.com/cash-back-credit-cards/chase-freedom-unlimited) and no annual fee, Chase also has a refer-a-friend program that will net you $100 per referral! Please feel free to use my referral link if you would like. 🙂 [removed]
