The Chase Freedom Unlimited® earns a flat 1.5% cash back on all purchases, and its annual fee is $0.
You can redeem rewards for cash back or statement credit, but you can also use them to book travel directly through the Chase Ultimate Rewards® travel portal — or you can transfer your points to other Chase cards with more valuable redemption options.
It makes an ideal partner for the Chase Freedom® and the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card.
