Last Chance: Chase Freedom 20,000 Sign-Up Bonus
Update: Some offers mentioned below are no longer available. View the current offers here.
As I've written about before, I’ve had the Chase Freedom card (No longer open to new applicants) 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.
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.
