New Welcome Offer of $200 for Chase Freedom Cards

Chase is offering new welcome offer on both the Freedom and the Freedom Unlimited credit cards. You can now get $200 from each offer. Let’s look at the details.

Chase Freedom Unlimited

  • Earn $200 Cash Back after you spend $500 on purchases within three months of account opening.

Card Benefits

  • 0% intro APR for 15 months
  • Unlimited 1.5% cash back (UR) on any purchase
  • No Annual Fee
  • Direct Link

Chase Freedom

  • Earn $200 Cash Back after you spend $500 on purchases within three months of account opening.

Card Benefits

  • Earn 5% cash back (UR) on up to $1,500 in combined purchases in bonus categories each quarter you activate.
  • Unlimited 1% cash back (UR) on all other purchases
  • 0% intro APR for 15 months
  • No Annual Fee
  • Direct Link

Analysis

Both cards fall under Chase’s 5/24 rule. So that makes it difficult for many people to qualify for this offer.

This is a pretty good offer for the Freedom card but some may be better off taking the other Chase Freedom Unlimited offer.  With that offer you get 3% cash back (3 points) per dollar on your first $20,000 in spend during the first year. If you were planning on putting a lot of spend on the card then you would be sitting on 60,000 points at the end of the year (Learn More).  If you took the $200 offer you would be sitting on 50,000 points at the end of the year for the same spend.  If you do not plan on putting that much spend on your card then the $200 welcome offer is best for you.

The current offers should be worth more than $200 for most people. You just need to have a Sapphire Preferred or Ink card so you can transfer cash back to UR points.

Conclusion

This is a decent welcome offer for no fee cards. But the problem with the offer is that most readers will be way over 5/24. And for those under 5/24, there’s probably better offers and better cards out there.

Do you thinks it’s worth it?
