Chase Freedom Increased Off Available
Last week I wrote that the Chase Freedom card (my review) was going to have an increased bonus starting this week. It seems that this offer is now live through both the Chase website and through Chase’s referral website.
- Receive $200 (20,000 points) after $500 in spend during the first 3 months.
- Receive $25 (2,500 points) after adding an authorized user who uses the card to make a purchase within the first 6 months.
Last week when I posted, none of my Freedom cards were working for referrals. Thankfully I just checked and now they seem to be working. If you found that you weren’t eligible last week, check again at the Chase referral website. You can find more detailed refer-a-friend instructions here.
Where to Apply
You should be able to apply through anyone’s referral link or directly at the Chase website as well. I am going to post my personal referral link here if anyone is interested, but feel free to post yours in the comments as well.
This is the highest that the Freedom’s bonus has been in the past several years, so now may be a good time to get it if the card falls within your master plan. A $225 bonus (22,500 points) on a no annual fee card is a fantastic bonus, especially considering these points are transferable if you have either a Sapphire Preferred or a Chase Ink Plus/Bold.
