Chase Freedom Unlimited® [chase.com] credit card has a new special offer that gives $200 Bonus after you spend $500 on purchases in your first 3 months, plus 0% APR for 15 months and 3% balance transfers for 60 days from account opening.

Card benefits include:
  • Earn unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase
  • 0% intro APR for 15 months from account opening on purchases and balance transfers. After that, 16.99%–25.74% variable APR. 3% intro balance transfer fee when you transfer a balance during the first 60 days your account is open, with a minimum of $5. After that, the fee for future balance transfers is 5% of the amount transferred, with a minimum of $5.
  • No annual fee
  • Cash Back rewards do not expire
This product is available to you if you do not have this card and have not received a new cardmember bonus for this card in the past 24 months.

*** OP's Notes ***
  1. This card is different from Chase Freedom®. You are allowed to own or apply for both cards at once.
  2. Chase has a rule where you cannot apply for one of their cards if you've gotten 5 or more new cards from any institution within 24 months (the 5/24 rule for short.) Keep this in mind when applying for Chase cards.
  3. Chase is fairly strict on the definition of 3 months. It is literally 3 months, by date, from the exact day you are approved for the card (eg. Aug. 28th to Nov. 28th.) You can call customer service to confirm the date.
  4. They can expedite the mailing of your card for free, if you call them. Otherwise they will mail it via First Class Mail which may take 5-10 business days and delay the time you have to make your purchases.
  5. YMMV but according to the representative I spoke to the purchases only need to be 'Pending' by the deadline date.
Good deal?

I went ahead and got it, took seconds to get approval since I had Freedom card. It's easy to get 500 in groceries alone. I did this with BOA card around BF for same terms. I'm not a financial guru but it was easy and no fee.

Are you guys applying as a guest, or signing in to apply?
I noticed that when clicking on either of the links, the Pricing & Terms section which is embedded, does not include any information about the $200 after $500 spend, which makes me a bit worried clicking on the Submit button.

Click on the "guest" link. It doesn't say anything about the offer either.

P.S. I just tried to get approved via the "sign-in" option, but was turned down. Must be because I've been closing a bunch of cards over the last few months. I don't have any debt other than a mortgage. I do still have several credit cards. Only one with Chase.

I ended up going through the sign-in route and that got me approved after verifying my identity with a question they had from my tax returns. So now to wait and see if I get the 200 after 500 spend. I'll send an inquiry when I get the card in the mail.

If you have the Chase Freedom card, gas purchases are 5% cashback until end of September, so continue to buy gas with the plain Freedom card until then.

Also, my AMEX Blue offers 3% at grocery stores, so I use the AMEX for that. My plain Chase Freedom card is used for Walmart, medical, pharmacy, home improvement, and online which accounts for plenty monthly.

If you have another Chase card that allows UR transfers to partners, e.g. Sapphire, points will be pooled or can be transferred between accounts.

so this does accrue UR points, not strictly cashback earned
ie. that 200 back will be in the form of 20000 pts, not $200

This card itself is cashback, you can pool these points with other transferable UR points but in order to do that you need to have another Chase card that has that ability.
