Pros and cons

Pros
  • No annual fee

  • Intro APR period

  • High rewards rate

  • No minimum redemption amount

Cons
  • Requires good/excellent credit

The Chase Freedom Unlimited® offers a compelling combination of valuable rewards, flexible redemption options, a lengthy 0% introductory APR period and a sign-up bonus that’s worth more than most cash-back cards offer — all for an annual fee of $0.

The Chase Freedom Unlimited® earns 3% cash back on restaurants and drugstore purchases, 5% back on travel booked through Chase and 1.5% back on other purchases.

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.
