High 5s All Around

The Chase Freedom Flex offers several 5% cashback categories:

  • Earn 5% cashback on up to $1,500 on purchases in quarterly bonus categories you activate. (October through December 2020 are Walmart and Paypal.)
  • Earn 5% cashback on grocery store purchases (not including Target or Walmart purchases) on up to $12,000 spent within the first year of being approved. That alone is potentially worth $600.
  • Earn 5% cashback on travel purchased through Chase. So if you book a trip through Chase’s travel service, you’ll receive 5% cashback — and still earn both elite and redeemable miles on your airline ticket purchases!

3s Company

You also enjoy 3% cashback on some other purchases:

  • Dining at restaurants, including takeout and eligible delivery services
  • Drugstores

0% Introductory APR and $0 Annual Fee

Here are two massive zeros — but in a good way! The Chase Freedom Flex offers a 0% introductory APR for 15 months from account opening on purchases (then a variable APR of 14.99 – 23.74%).

Plus, the card doesn’t charge an annual fee. That’s a heck of a great deal for all those bonus categories.

Final Approach

I already have the Chase Freedom card (which appears to be sunsetting), so I product-changed to the Freedom Flex. I can’t wait to start using my new card! If you don’t already have the Chase Freedom card, learn now how to apply for the Chase Freedom Flex!

    What did you gain by product changing? A Mastercard instead of a Visa? The old Freedom gets the same cashback now, right? This product introduction has me really confused.
