This is an amazing card. Great rewards (200 bucks if you spend 500 or more in the first 3 months!), great interest rates, and impeccable customer service. If these qualities matter to you at all, get this card. You won't regret it.

I opened this card back in college and have been using it for about 8 years now on and off. I think the rewards program of 1% cash back all the time is pretty decent, but I find that the 5% offers that are good for 3 months at a time could be better. Sometimes they are for movies, department stores, and home improvement stores which I don't visit frequently enough to value the rewards. Other times though, they will be for gas, hotels, and flights, which is really helpful in saving money for large transactions, even if it is only 5 cents per dollar.

I really like the Chase Freedom Card because it is simple, straightforward, and has no fees. I use this as my everyday card for purchases on everything from groceries to gas to dining out. Additionally, you can earn 5% cash back on this card, and that is a really nice perk. I typically use that cash back towards paying off my balance.

I applied for the Chase Freedom Card over a year ago and it is one of my favorites cards. I have earned quite a few rewards by using it (even just by applying) so it was a great investment. I got the card quickly and have never had an issue with Chase.

I think the Chase Freedom card is a very strong card option for someone with excellent credit,who is looking for a cash - back credit card with average APR interest rates. Personally, unless you are trying to carry a balance I think most people would be better off with one of Chase's many Rewards branded cards, such as my favorite the Chase Sapphire Preferred which is a fantastic card for traveling and eating out at restaurants and gets to use Chase Ultimate Rewards which is a great tool for booking travel and utilizing rewards points.

Good rule of thumb, if you're EVER going to carry a balance get a cash more

I have the Chase Freedom Cash Back credit card, and it is really fantastic. It’s so easy to earn cash back with the 5% redemption rate. This is really a card I can use every day, and I use the card for my all my purchases, large and small, so that I can earn the maximum amount of cash back. Additionally, I can earn cash bonuses when I spend a certain amount of money The customer service is also really great. I always get my questions answered quickly and efficiently both online and over the phone by customer service representatives. This is a great card to have!

Freedom Chase credit card is about average to other credit cards but I am happy with their rewards program and offer various bonuses. For example $25 bonus dollars after you add a user and $100 dollars when you spend $500 in 3 months. The customer service for this card is reliable and helpful. They guided me through all the Credit card policies and gave me tips in the event something would go wrong. The Freedom from Chase is accepted in virtually any place. Good for travel, shopping or dining out. .No annual fee and rewards never expire.Use it and get rewarded. I would recommend it.

I have used this as my secondary credit card. I do not like the company because for one thing they do not have a high enough credit limit. $1500 is nothing. I decided to start using it and they called me to say I have not paid my bills. They have a frustrating online web service to pay your bills. I like the credit card companies that allow you to deduct the minimum payment automatically. The woman said I could call another line to start this. I think she was rude because she could not help me do this or connect me to someone who would.

This has been a great card for me. I have used it for over 10 years now. The rewards alone have been worth it while they are always actively searching for a lower rate for me. I built my line of credit with this company and will continue to use it as my main line of credit in the future. Now that my family has expanded it has really come in handy to allow me to purchase all my newly needed baby items and with the low rate I feel confident that I can provide for my family now and in the future.

The Chase Freedom credit card is a great option for those who have excellent credit (a FICO credit score above 720). The rewards of the card are fairly competitive, with a $100 bonus after spending $500 in your first three months, a very easily-obtained bonus and a major selling point. Not only do you get that, but once you add an authorized user to the card and make a purchase during that same three month period, you get another $25 bonus. A total of $125 for simply signing up and using the card! With 5% cash back on different categories every three months, such as gas, restaurants, and Amazon.com, and more

The Chase Freedom Visa has several different perks. The cardholder has the ability to earn a $100.00 bonus for spending $500.00 within the first three months of owning the card. The cardholder also earns unlimited 1% cash back on purchases. Compared to the Discover It card, it has the cardholder in mind. The Chase Freedom Visa has many perks that would allow cardholders to earn cash back as well as earn bonuses, while the Discover It card does not. It only allows you to earn a percent back on purchases during specific months of the year - after that time has passed, you can no longer earn cash back on more

I have had this card for several years ago to buy flooring for my house. Because of the 15 month 0% intro rate, I was able to pay it off with no interest! I did not use it regularly, because I like to avoid debt, but the next time I did, the rate had gone up to 15.99%, but I called Chase and asked for a better rate, they ran my credit, and gave me the 13.99% rate. I was pleased with this. I also like that they have rewards. I have recently started to better my credit, and because I use Amazon frequently, the points system has been a more

I applied for the Chase Freedom card and I was approved for a very low APR after I would use it for the first year. They have excellent customer service and every time that I give them a call they are polite and go above and beyond to make sure that I am satisfied with the service. This credit card is excellent because I have a Chase checking account so payments are really easy for me to make. The no annual fee and rewards are excellent as well.

This card never lets me down, using it everywhere is a breeze without issue. You can also get cashback on many purchases and there is an awesome point system. I can't imagine using anything else. The customer service for this card is also some of the best I have ever seen. They helped me prevent issues and told me what I can do in the event of problems. So far no problems!

Since I shop at Amazon pretty much all the time, this card is perfect for me. Since I receive 5% cash back on those purchases, it has earned be over $200 over the past few months, which is awesome. It took me a while to qualify for this card, since it does require you to have very good credit, but I swear it is worth it. The low APR is also a great incentive to get this card, seeing as it is lower than a lot of comparable cards.

I love my Chase Freedom credit card. You get cash back on your purchases, up to 5% if you sign up for the quarterly categories and shop in those stores. They start you off with a lot of points on your cards, which is a big plus, not to mention the long introductory period with no interest. This is the first and only credit card I've ever gotten, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. I recommend it highly.

This is an excellent card if you have excellent credit. I love the introduction of no interest for 15 months also no annual fee. The fact that the rewards never expires gives you ample time to build points for special holidays when you can really use them. Chase Freedom offers many other bonus and cash back options.

The Chase Freedom card is a pretty good card. The rewards are very useful, especially the opportunity to get 5% cash back on certain purchases. I like that they continually increase my credit limit, but the APR is on the high end.

The Chase Freedom Visa is a good credit card, it gives you $100 if you spend $500 in the first 3 months and 0% interests for 15 months plus if you have a Checking with Chase you get and extra 10% Cash bonus reward, it is NOT the best card but the best thing about it, is that you can get it with a FICO in the 600s...

Like that this card has plenty of bonus opportunities. Also like the fact that the intro APR is 0% for 15 months. I also like the fact that the balance transfer percent is a low 3%. I also like the fact that there are promos like the shopping at Khols and getting 5% cash back. Anywhere you can save is good to me. I would have a hard time choosing between this card and the Capital One Venture card, but the intro interest rate would sway me towards this card.

I opened this card when I anticipated a large expense. It had 12 months interest free and a bonus opportunity for spending a $500 in the first three months. I already knew I would spend this and was able to earn that bonus of $100! I love the quarterly categories and I use my card only when those categories apply to me to maximize on the 5% back received. To redeem cash back earned you need a minimum of $20, which is not bad and understandable. Typically I take this off my card balance using it as account credit and lower my bill. It feels great! I think the interest more

I have had chase for about 5 years, I love the card and have had no issues. I love that you get 5% cash back and you get a good interest rate. The zero APR when I first signed up was the seller for me. I think that this is one of the best credit cards I have ever had, considering I close most of the others.

As others have said I really like this card as well. Redeeming rewards is quick and easy. They also have a wide variety of 5% cash back categories. The interest rate is competitive and I got a great introductory offer ($100.00 cash back when I spent $1,000 in the first 3 months). I can use the card anywhere, and hell, it even looks snazzy. Also, since I have a Chase checking account, scheduling a payment for this card or monitoring activity on the card is a snap! Also the only time I had to call customer service for this card, I spoke with an actual American who was actually quite more

This card has been in my possession since last year and I absolutely love it. Chase gave me a high limit with a low APR%. The zero APR for the first 15 months really swayed me to apply for this card. Their cash reward promotions are excellent.

I have had this card for the last 5 years. It is a great card. I love getting the cash back. It is nice that they allow the cash awards towards a payment. The rate could be a lot better and am not a huge fan of the late fee. It is not not to have a yearly fine though. Overall I feel that it is a good card and does have its benefits to using the card.

I received this card in February and have been pleased with the service. I earn 5% cash on gas, restaurants, Kohls, etc. depending on which quarter it is. In addition, I was able to get $200 after purchasing $500 within the first 3 months of receiving the card. That is a nice added bonus! Overall I like the card but the customer service could be a little quicker when I call in. Sometimes I wait about 20 minutes before speaking with someone.

My chase freedom card has been great for the 2 years that I have had it. The cash back option is great especially since they have a few area that they switch between that offer 5% cash back instead of the standard amount. Also having no annual fee is really nice because it has some extra perks that cards with fees have.

My Chase Freedom card has always been excellent. The constant 1% cash back with rotating categories of 5% cash back (changing each quarter) may not be the absolute best rewards, but for a free card with good online support, it's perfect!

This card requires Excellent credit, so if your score is “Good”, don’t bother applying. 13.99% interest rate is great, plus they allo 0% for the first 15 months on purchase and transfers. There’s no annual fee, which is rare these days. They allow a monetary bonus when you add authorized users and give you $200 when you spend $500 within the first 3 months. Every few months they have different categories where you can get cash back at gas stations and restaurants. Harder to qualify for than the Chase Slate card, but still a great one.

Definitely one of my favorite cards. They do bonuses on and off when you open he card. When I was approved, I was given $150.00 for spending $500 in the first two months. This card has great cash rewards. It's 1% on everything, and then randomly they will give you additional abilities to earn up to 5% cash back on specific purchases, such as gas or groceries. Chase also has a great customer service calling office. Very easy to deal with.

Definitely one of the best cash back/reward cards out there. 5% back on gas 6 months out of the year, which is great. The 5% rotates now and then but you get 1% back on everything else all year and no annual fee. You don't need a Chase bank account but if you do there are extra rewards that I think make it worth looking into.

The Chase Freedom offer seems OK. There are several perks to it that I appreciate, however I'm not sure I like it as well as my good old Amex card.
They say you earn a $100 Bonus after you spend $500 on purchases in your first 3 months from account opening. That doesn't seem to hard to do so, FREE $100. Earn a $25 Bonus after you add YOUR FIRST AUTHORIZED USER and make a purchase within this same 3-month period. This is another free $25 bucks if you have someone else on your card with you. You also get 5% Cash Back on up to $1,500 in combined purchases more
