Chase Freedom vs. Perfect Cards

I have been thinking about "upgrading" my Amazon.com Visa with Chase to either a Chase Perfect or a Freedom card.  I looked at the Chase website and checked the pricing and terms of many of their different cards and, frankly, they all seem identical to me.

 

Could someone please give me the introductory course Chase Cards 101, please?

Re: Chase Freedom vs. Perfect Cards

Hi Underh20, sorry but I am not an expert but from my understanding and I have the Perfect Card you can get 3% cash back credit on your statement for fuel/gas purchases and 1% on other purchases which are capped at $15 a month. For the Freedom its $1 for 1 point which are unlimited earnings. I hope this helped.

Don't forget the most important part:  3% on your top 3 categories for the month @ up to $200 in purchases for each category in addition to the 1% unlimited elsewhere.

For new Freedom cards that's only for the first 6 months. After that, it's a regular 1% rewards card.

Re: Chase Freedom vs. Perfect Cards

Underh20 it just really depends on what rewards you want since you are going to do a PC. The Perfect Card gives you 3% cash back on gas and the Freedom Card you will get $1 per point. The Freedom Card is a cool card to have for the first 6 months then the reward structure drops. Since the gas prices are high I use this card for all my gas purchases.
