$250 Bonus on Chase Freedom Credit Card

Chase Freedom Credit Card will give you $250 free for signing up after you make your first purchase.

UPDATE 05/01/2007 :: Looks like the $250 deal is dead, but the Chase Freedom Credit Card still pays you 3% cashback on Gas, Groceries and Fast Food!

chase credit card

This is a great credit card because it offers:

  • 3% cashback on Gas, Grocery Stores, and Fast Food Restaurants
  • 1% back on all other purchases

I will probably be applying for this card myself, and will share my experiences with it.

UPDATE: Bankaholic reader, Mac, was nice enough to submit a screenshot of the $250 promo. If your Chase customer service rep tries to deny you the $250 deal, simply point them to the PDF file.

    I applied for Chase credit card before and cancelled it. Do you know if I’m eligible for this offer? I read that this offer is only good for first time Chase members with new accounts. Thanks.

    Deal dead, just shows a zero percent introductory rate for 3 months, no big deal there.

    Not true, it is still showing $250 free after 1st purchase.

    Try refreshing / clicking the link. Empty your cache and cookies while youre at it.

    It looks like the $250 offer only shows up on the low bandwidth page (the one without a song playing.) To see it, you can click on the link at the bottom of the page labeled, “Click here if you have dial-up or low-bandwidth.

    Interesting. Thanks for pointing that out, I’ve updated the post to reflect these changes.

    What a scam. I received my card today (Saturday), after applying due to seeing the special. After asking the validation dept. about the $250 special, they passed me to Customer Service, who claimed they had never heard of the offer & there was no indication of such offer on the card! Lowlifes, I have no intention of using Chase again for any credit needs.

    Fortunately, I printed the page while it showed the $250 cash back deal. They also tried to claim they had never heard of it. I scanned it and emailed it to them so they could not deny it! They then admitted that I was correct.

    Mac, do you happen to have a scan of the ad I could post up here? We could try using it as proof if the Chase reps continue to deny this promo.

    This article explains the $250 reward, not what it really would appear to be.

    If you never had a chase freedom credit card before then you are elegible for the bonus.

  30. sigue said:
    on April 23rd at 09:14 pm

    you needed to apply for this card on the elegible dates : march 13 – 16 and april 2-4 . This is what chase CR told me via email.

    I got my check super fast. Yee Haw for Chase. $250!!!

    I’m not going to use my CitiCard anymore. Citi said they’d give me a $100 best buy card for signing up. They said it would take a few cycles to show up and after months of hassle they replied to me by saying they never had that offer.

    I’ve received the $250 bonus for signing up for this Chase credit card as well. However, it looks like deal is now dead.

    Still a great cashback credit card for gas, groceries, and fast food though!
