The Chase Freedom card doesn’t get a lot of press time here at Help Me Travel Cheap.
The reason is simple: its sign up bonus is a lot less than most travel related credit cards. Currently, the sign up bonus for the Chase Freedom MasterCard and Visa are both 10,000 points, which is equivalent to $100 cash back.
However, if you’re not really into signing up for credit cards and canceling them before the year is up, then the Chase Freedom card might have some attractive points earning opportunities.
There are currently only a few cards that offer any sort of 5x opportunities.
- Ink Bold and Ink Plus cards offer 5x in the following categories: office supply stores, cell phone, landline, internet, and cable TV. This benefit is limited to $50,000 per year.
