As I’ve written about before, I’ve had the Chase Freedom card for years now and it becomes even more powerful when combined with the Chase Sapphire Preferred and/or Ink Plus cards. The standard sign-up bonus on the Freedom card is $100 (10,000 points) when you spend $500 within the first three months of card membership, however, today is the last day for the increased $200 (20,000 points) sign-up bonus.

The card offers rotating quarterly bonuses that allow you to earn 5 points per dollar in certain categories, up to $1,500 per quarter. So if you maximize each 5x quarter, you can bank 30,000 valuable Ultimate Rewards points per year on $6,000 in spend. Per my recent valuations, I value Ultimate Rewards points at about 2.1 cents a piece, meaning you can earn $630 worth of points each year from this card.

The Chase Freedom is currently offering an increased sign-up bonus.

In addition to the increased sign-up bonus, Chase just announced their first quarter categories for the Chase Freedom which will be grocery stores, Starbucks and movie theaters. As a reminder, if you are already a cardholder, you can register here to activate your spending bonus each quarter.
