Here is how to use Chase Freedom refer a friend.
Currently there is a $200 sign up bonus offer available through December 18, 2014! If you refer a friend, they get the $200 bonus and you still get $50.

What Is The Chase Freedom Card
The Chase Freedom (personal referral link) card is a fantastic product that gives 1% cash back on everyday purchases (not good) and 5% cash back up to $1500 spend each quarter in rotating categories (excellent). For example, this quarter (4th quarter 2014) the bonus categories are Amazon.com, Zappos.com & select department stores. Remember with the holiday season being a part of this quarter, it shouldn’t be too difficult to maximize the bonus.
One of the great things about the Freedom card is that it doesn’t have an annual fee so it is a good card to keep for a long time in order to raise your average age of accounts and to establish good credit with Chase.
The cash back is earned in the form of points which can be transferred to premium card accounts such as the Chase Ink Bold or Plus & the Sapphire Preferred. This means that you can potentially get a lot more than $.01 value out of each point by transferring them to partners such as United & Hyatt. Here is a my full review of the card.
I personally have two Chase Freedom cards and Jasmine has one. This quarter we are using our Freedom cards when eating out as we always try to maximise our bonuses. The application links in this post are my personal referral which means if you apply through them then I will receive the 5,000 points. Don’t feel any pressure to apply, but if you are already planning on getting the Freedom card, then I would appreciate any support.
The Chase Freedom refer a friend bonus can be a great opportunity to make money by referring your friends to a great product. If you don’t have a Chase Freedom card, I would definitely recommend it based on personal experience as long as it is something that fits in with your current strategy. The current $100 bonus offer is pretty standard, although it has been higher in the past. You can find more details about this card, my thoughts and the best current offer in my full Chase Freedom Review.
