Chase Freedom Unlimited changed their signup bonus from $150 ($500 spend) to 3% back on up to $20,000 of purchases within the first year. It was initially only available in-branch, then became available via referrals, and it’s now the public offer showing on the Chase site.
- No annual fee
- Regular rewards rate after first year is 1.5% back
- Card earns cash back, but if you have a premium Chase card like the Sapphire Reserve/Preferred, the cash works like Ultimate Rewards points
- 0% Introductory APR for 15 months on purchases and balance transfers (5% balance transfer fee)

We analyzed the offer more in previous posts. If you are signing up for the card, consider helping out a fellow reader by using a referral from this thread – the bonus is exactly the same as signing up directly and you’ll help someone out in the process.
The $150 offer is no longer available through public channels, though some people’s referral offers are still showing the $150 offer. You can leave referrals for Freedom Unlimited in this dedicated thread. If you have the $150 referral offer, add an addenda ‘$150 offer’ to the comment, along with your link, with no additional words.
