Comments to Chase Freedom 5% Cash Back Credit Card

  1. I have had the Chase Freedom card for quite awhile. Chase is now pushing their new Sapphire card on me. I know there are Points and such much like Chase Freedom. Do both cards use “Ultimate Rewards” program?
    If so, is either card better than the other?

  2. They both use ultimate rewards, but earn differently. The Chase Freedom cards rotates the bonus quarterly, the Chase Sapphire doesn’t.

    The Chase Sapphire also has the $100 Sign Up Bonus right now.


  3. I have Freedom too but the 5% categories don’t really help renters or recent grads who can’t take vacation. Glad they have at least 1 “everyday” item (drugstores, gas, grocery) each season.
