This product is not available to either (i) current cardmembers of this credit card, or (ii) previous cardmembers of this credit card who received a new cardmember bonus for this credit card within the last 24 months

For folks with CSP/Ink, this is a GREAT addition, no other chase cards gives you 1.5 UR points/$ it's an amazing everyday card...

sorry but this card seems pointless.
1.5% CB seems mehhh...

CapitolOne quicksilver has had 1.5% unlimited CB for a while. No fee.

Citi Double Cash has 2% unlimited CB. No fee.

Discover IT also has categories like freedom so getting rid of Freedom means ppl will rely more on Discover than this card.

New Citi Costco card also has some good CB.

For some, the 1.5% back isn't just about the cash, it's Ultimate Reward points, which has higher value to those that know how to use it. The regular Freedom with the catagories isn't going anywhere, this is a separate product. I own both and have been using the 1.5% one for over a week already when I PCed a regular Sapphire card.

It's a totally different product than the regular category spend Freedom. I don't predict they'll be dropping the regular one in place of this one. Discover's last quarter in 2015 was 5% back at Amazon, plus most people got in on the double cash back. Freedom also was 5% back but lacked the doubling part, towards the end of the quarter they announced you got 10% back, which they have never done. I think this has a lot to do with Discover being very aggressive at getting people to use their cars over Freedom's, and Freedom responded.

Is this a hint that they are going to eventually phase out the 5% revolving categories?

did you get any bonus for PCing your card to this one? I have 2 chase freedoms because I PC'd my chase sapphire preferred last year and I'm debating PCing one of the freedoms to the freedom ultimate or just opening another card

No bonus but the account number stayed the same, they just issued a new card with a new exp date/security code. The nice thing about doing this is you won't be dinged for opening a new account in case you'd like to get the Sapphire Preferred bonus again later. Chase has that pesky 5/24 rule now where pcing is sometimes better than a new credit line. I kept my credit line and everything, and this was going from CSP to CS to Freedom unlimited. I should be eligible for the CSP bonus again later this year.

I have 3 Freedom cards and messaged Chase to switch my main Freedom card to the unlimited. They have but of course I didn't qualify for the sign up bonus. I rarely used their 5% quarterly categories so was happy with the extra 1/2 %. I still have my 2 other Freedom cards if I need to shop the categories since you can combine the rewards..

Only thing with Chase is there aren't many promotions for current card holders like you see with American Express and Discover.

They must have felt the burn in the last quarter of 2015 when Discover was doing the same 5% back at Amazon they were, but also had the double cash back making it a 10% category. Chase offered an additional 5% with a month left, they wouldn't do that if they weren't feeling the pressure from Discover.

Not even remotely pointless--also it's not necessarily 1.5% CB. It's 1.5 Ultimate Rewards points that can be worth much more than 2% cashback on travel. Pair it with CSP or Ink+ and this is a killer card.
