Is this card still offered?
It has always been offered through Chase. Try and see if you qualify. But watch out for your credit score if you care enough, and make sure if you really need it compared to other cards you already have.

It could well be either case. There was one page (and I think only that page) that provided the Freedom Plus until literally yesterday. Chase then yanked that entry and replaced it with their Disney card.
There is always a chance that calling up Chase directly and applying for it over the phone may do the trick. Otherwise, inquire about becoming a Freedom cardholder if they say "Yes, the Plus card we make available six months after you prove how well you can give us money." and you really want it.
As long as the rewards program doesn't change terms too much, the Plus is well worth seeking. Of course, all of us Plus holders might well find the terms changed for the worse before too much longer anyway. Kind of a shame, but those are the economic breaks.

I got my Freedom Plus by product changing my WAMU Visa....I didn't see any application for the PLUS card with AF. It may be this is only a PC or upgrade option....cause it sure isn't anywhere in plain sight.
There used to be links to it that were easy to google for. I got mine by luck. Apped for the Freedom card, received the signature version even though I was very clear in telling them I did not want the signature card. When I called back to tell them, they swapped me to the PLUS version. I dind't know the difference at first.
Also...just FYI. They don't refer to it as an AF. So if you ask if there is an AF they can techinically tell you "no". I believe they call it a program fee or something. It is $30 and they waive it for the first year.
