Re: Chase Freedom with Blink

I just got my Freedom 2 days ago. No Blink. Not sure if I want it really, but to each their own

Re: Chase Freedom with Blink

Got mine in November and it had blink. I use it at Meijer all the time. Takes the guesswork out of swiping Smiley Happy

Re: Chase Freedom with Blink

Interesting! Thanks all! So the answer sounds like maybe it will. I'll let you know when I get it!

Sweet, congrats on the new card. I was pleasantly surprised about how it looked. Not as ugly as I was expecting! Kinda cool actually. It's no CSP, but I like the "sheen" on it if you will

 

The overall layout looks like this http://www.nextadvisor.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/chase_freedom_visa_200.jpg (don't worry, it's a stock image) but the "Freedom" and the Chase logo are shiny metallic color, with the rest of the front kind of a dull blue metallic color.

 

Also pleasantly surprised by the additional standard benefits of the card, which I couldn't really find much info for online

Thanks! Yes, I am hoping that it looks much better than the pictures. I can't wait to read about all the benefits when I get the welcome packet! Smiley Happy

I agree, although the stock photo doesn't due it justice

also, if you turn the card to see the edge, the edge is neon green Smiley Happy

did you request blink feature?

i got my freedom card in early 2009 - not sure if blink was even offered back then.

I did not request it. Came on both my card and my AU card
