The Chase Freedom Unlimited® card and Chase Freedom Flex℠ Credit Card are 2 of the most popular credit cards from Chase thanks to the pair’s combination of strong rewards from multiple bonus categories, while not charging cardholders an annual fee.

Now, both cards come with a welcome bonus that allows you to earn up to 80,000 Ultimate Rewards points in your first year of holding the card.

New Freedom Flex Card and Freedom Unlimited Card Offers

Now, for a limited time, new Freedom Flex card and Freedom Unlimited cardholders will earn a $200 bonus after spending $500 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening. Plus, earn 5% cash-back on grocery store purchases (not including Target or Walmart purchases) on up to $12,000 spent in the first year.

Since cash-back rewards are earned in the form of Chase Ultimate Rewards points, those who are able to meet the grocery store spend threshold of $12,000 will effectively earn a welcome bonus worth 80,000 Ultimate Rewards points — 20,000 for the minimum spend requirement and 60,000 for $12,000 in grocery spend.

If you’re having trouble deciding which card is right for you, it is important to note that the other bonus categories on each card are nearly identical with both offering 5% on travel purchased through the Chase Ultimate Rewards travel portal and 3% back on dining and drugstores.

The main differentiator is that the Freedom Flex card offers 5% cash-back on up to $1,500 in combined purchases in rotating quarterly bonus categories like gas and wholesale clubs, while the Freedom Unlimited card offers an unlimited 1.5% cash-back on all purchases outside of the cards bonus categories.
