Re: Chase Freedom Rates have 3 Tiers now

After reading your post I went to log on to Chase and they changed my interest rate.  So I am now at 13.99%.  I realize I am not yet at the "Elite" credit score level, but hey at least I am considered "premium" middle of the road--I'll take it!  I don't pay interest, but it is kinda cool anyway.

These rates appear to be for the regular Freedom card's non-Signature/Platinum versions.  I noticed that Chase also describes pricing and terms for the Chase Freedom Plus Signature and Platinum versions.

My Chase Platinum Visa card has a purchase APR of 5.99% and a credit limit of $25K, though I don't pay them interest since I pay in full every month.

You can't complain about 5.99%!!!

 

Currently, my Chase Freedom Visa card has a purchase APR of 4.49%.  This account was opened in March of 1986, and I obviously later changed it to a Freedom card.
