Re: Chase Freedom spend 500 get 200 sign-up bonus for everyone now.

Yep, $200 for such a small spend and no AF pushes this into the "no-brainer" category, even for those with no great need for the card.

Re: Chase Freedom spend 500 get 200 sign-up bonus for everyone now.

I'd love to jump on it, but I just opened my CSP in Sept and just got approved for the Marriott Rewards card.  I'm still waiting for it to arrive in the mail.  It's probably too soon for me to apply for another Chase card.

You can also have them move part of the CSP / Marriott credit limit to the Freedom if you have reached the credit threshold Chase is willing to extend to you right now.

How long do you think the offer will hang around?  I don't have any room to shift any CLs.  I just barely got in: $5,000 CL on both the CSP and Marriott.

Re: Chase Freedom spend 500 get 200 sign-up bonus for everyone now.

Very impressed by the response from Chase.  Within minutes, they replied to my secure message and have given my 10K now, with the original 10K posting when the statement closes.  (I assume that they checked I had spent $500!)  And my UR balance immediately increased.

 

Now if only they reintrodcued something like the 5% AARP I could show my gratitude by switching spend from Citi to Chase!

I hope I have the same luck, I just sent them a message asking if I'm eligible to receive the extra bonus.
