Anyone have experience with the Chase Freedom 10% annual bonus

[ Edited ]

I have banked with Chase for years and I have the Freedom on my hit list in the number 2 slot behind Discover IT.

 

One thing that jumps out at me is that 10% annual bonus if you have a Chase Checking account, which I do and have for years.

 

I can forecast pumping about 30K through it annually so I am wondering if the bonus is geuinely 10% or am I missing something here? 

 

Smiley Happy Thanks

I'm curious as well. I just got the Freedom card and have been banking with Chase for 5 years.

Hey 09Lexie, mind PMing me one of those codes you get for the $200 bonus for opening up a Chase checking account? Smiley Happy I just got approved for the Freedom the other day, and would like to open up a checking with Chase as well. The best I can find is the $125. :/
