[Targeted] Online Offer for Chase Freedom Unlimited 30,000 + 2,500 Points

The Offer

Some people are getting an email offer from Chase to get the following signup bonus on the Freedom Unlimited card:

  • $300 cash back (30,000 Chase UR points) after $500 in spend
  • $25 cash back (2,500 Chase UR points) after adding an authorized user and them making their first purchase

 

The Fine Print

  • Apply by July 20, 2017

Card Details

  • No annual fee
  • Card earns 1.5x points on all purchases

Our Verdict

Multiple Slickdeals members and Reddit members report getting this offer via email today, apparently a batch targeted offer was sent out. Interesting, there are also recent reports there of people who got the same $325 offer in-branch (probably as a preapproved offer).

The in-branch offer isn’t something new – we’ve posted about it multiple times before – but still good to know that it’s showing up for some. The online $325 offer is a new thing, as far as I can recall, but it’ll only work for those targeted.

Just remember that the online offer probably won’t bypass 5/24. The in-branch offer should bypass it if it’s a preapproval.

If you signed up for the Freedom Unlimited within the past 90 days and were targeted for this offer, you should be able to get a match on the higher bonus. Check out lots of other important Things to Know about apply for Chase cards in this post.

“Just remember that the online offer probably won’t bypass 5/24”. Any data points that confirm your statement?

agreed with Chuck,
I aslo got the email, the APR is a range from 15% to 24%, not a fixed value.
what a shame, I won’t be under 5/24 until this September

anyone got a public link?

Heard over on reddit someone just saw it online on the site.

That would be so Amex of Chase!

Does Chase match up to higher targeted offers like these if you got the card within last 3 months? Anyone got any experience with this?

Avi

Oh well, got my answer, nevermind.

Avi, what’s the answer? i’m on the same boat. TT

I will attempt this tomorrow. I applied 4/10, so I am within 90 days of the offer.

Update from secured message. To be matched requires proof of email for the $300 offer. Not gonna happen for me.

Avi
Avi

I said that because I realized that I am out of the 90 days window by 3 days lol. Anyway, normally matching up to targeted offers is highly YMMV with Chase. So far, there hasn’t been any success in matching up to this $300 FU offer on Reddit.

So I *finally* did the Chase checking bonus just now. When I went in I got preapproval for UF AND Sapphire Preferred which I was stoked about being over 5/24. But! I already have UF. Is it even possible to get a 2nd one? And should it be possible to get the match? The banker assured me the offers are saved on the account.

AFAIK you can’t get another card you already have (except by doing a product change). You can try product changing the FU to something else (Freedom?), then use this offer.

Avi
Avi

Also you shouldn’t have received the bonus for FU in the past 24 months. Considering that FU cards haven’t even been in the market for 24 months yet, its just not possible for you. I’m in the same boat as well.

William Charles

I think you should product change your current UF to a regular Freedom first and then you should be eligible for a second UF.

Data point: I’m at 6/24. Got this email and was going to ignore it like I did the last one. Since I was going to a branch for a withdrawal anyway, asked the teller if I had any offers. Sure enough, I did, for this very over. Was also pre approved for the CSP. Applied for the CSP and got instant approval. May be worth the trip to a branch, even at lol/24. You never know.

Also, since chase combines pulls anyway, applied for the FU through email link. Instant denial.

I was targeted but I’m over 5/24. Why do they do this to us?

Cory

because it’s the FU card

Hah good one!

After clicking on the targeted link, the name fields are locked for editing. However, if you use your browser’s developer tools to edit the HTML inline, you can change the name and the changes actually show up in the final confirmation. Can’t confirm that it will get approved, but could be useful if you know someone who’s under 5/24.

William Charles

I wouldn’t do that

Avi
Avi

I have done similar editing on other websites for non-banking applications, and it worked there. So I guess its worth a shot. I don’t think Chase expects anyone to be smart enough to make such HTML changes, so there could be a loophole there.

I just signed up yesterday for the FU with the regular $150 offer (I wasn’t targeted). Is there anyway I can get this offer matched??

Jeremy

SM and ask!

I signed up for the card about a month ago and was targeted for the $300 promotion via email, so I tried calling chase if I can get a match for the promotion but was rejected.

I am having chase freedom for a while, now I was targeted for Chase FU $300. If I get FU, is it considered as product migration?
I have recently opened Chase Checking and Savings, would they fall in 5/24 category?

nathan
nathan

a chase checking and savings would not fall into 5/24 category. only credit cards fall into this category.

also, if i understand your question correctly: if you apply and are approved for a chase FU, then you will have 2 cards: both a chase freedom and a chase FU.

Doc, could you please upload the full email offer? not cropped image.

Thanks!

William Charles

I don’t have the full e-mail offer, you trying to get matched?

CryptoChrist

I know I am still hoping to get matched on this. Any way to get matched if you weren’t targeted but are within 90 days of your Chase FU $150 bonus? Thanks!

William Charles

Try it and see what they say

Good call! Sadly the CSR requested I send them a copy of my email for the offer. It’s a no go on the match without an email! Thanks again for all of your hard work.

So my wife who is over 5/24 is targeted for this offer…. but…. she also has the “selected for you” $150 Freedom Unlimited offer…

So…

Anyone know if you apply for a targeted $300 offer… and have a selected for you offer in your account… but….. you’re over 5/24 if you would be approved… LOLL

Or is it better to apply for the selected for you offer and get matched to it?

William Charles

Hrm, this is a tricky one! I don’t know what’s best to be honest but keep me updated with whatever you decide to do.

Applied for Chase Ink Preferred in branch with account rep in late May under assumption it would bypass 5/24 but was rejected due to 5/24. Turns out I applied 1 month too early. Reapplied online today and was approved.

I hope they will match in branch offer of 100K points and waiver of first-yr ann fee vs online offer of 80K and no ann fee waiver. Waiting for card so I can send them in-app msg since the time between both applications was just 6 weeks apart. FYI- i can’t get a hold of the inbranch acct rep. She never return my calls or emails.
