Another Chase Freedom APR reduction

Well title says it.. Had the highest on my freedom as was first card with chase at i think 25% approx APR.. Just got a snail mail they lowered it to 17.24% which is the lowest.  Wonder if they are doing this for all Freedom holders and trying to get them to switch to the FU as well, which I won't take them up on that part.  Had Freedom approx 5 years now i think.. I will take it although I dont carry a balance on that card for many obvious reasons.    I suspect we will be seeing a lot more of these in snail mail soon.

Re: Another Chase Freedom APR reduction

Interesting. Currently sitting at 6% due to a promo. But would love to see this go through to my other cards. Although, I am currently a Chase quadfecta owner, so seems doubtful they will target me for a FU upgrade or soemthing.

Re: Another Chase Freedom APR reduction

Ya think they are trying to find suckers with good credit into making the switch from Freedom to FU that only use freedom for 5%'s and hoping people aren't quick enough to realize you dont have to upgrade to get the best APR..Granted if not for horrid 5/24 rule (in my eyes) I would also have the FU, but wont give up the regular freedom for the fu..  They make it sound like an upgrade vs. a Product change and good till x date where-as you can just call and PC any time lol...  I have the best rates on my CSR and IHG cards already.  So can't complain other then Chase APR's are already high enough!  Although helps my credit ego a bit

Re: Another Chase Freedom APR reduction

Hmm, I dont expect to be lowered am at 17.99 and that is due to the 25BPS cut at the federal reserve. Might be targeting the higher interest rate customers who have Ficos above a certain level.

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

Re: Another Chase Freedom APR reduction

That’s a very nice drop!

 

I wonder if they are trying to phase out the Freedom like Citi and the Dividend?

Re: Another Chase Freedom APR reduction

Congrats on your APR reduction.  I got the same letter on Saturday after first getting an e-mail a few days earlier.  Like you, there's no way I'd "upgrade" from the Freedom to the Freedom Unlimited.  Then today a received another letter from Chase with BT checks... Smiley Happy

Got the same letter today.  My APR dropped from 17.24% to 2.99% and I don't plan on the PC to FU either.
