Review of the Chase Freedom Credit Card (2017)

5% Cashback on rotating categories + 1% cashback on all other purchases

What more can you ask for?

This Chase Credit Card very similar to Discover’s Student Credit Card, with the only big difference being this is a Visa. So is it worth getting? Let’s take a look…

What are the benefits?:

  1. 5% Cashback on rotating categories + 1% cashback on all other purchases
  2. $150 cashback if you spend $500 within 90 days of the account opening
  3. 0% intro APR for 15 months from account opening on purchases and balance transfers. After that, 15.74%–24.49% variable APR.
  4. Chase benefits listed here (such as price protection): Click me

Is this card worth getting? Yes. (As long as you are under 5/24 & have a credit score over 700) But, is it better than Discover’s Student Credit Card?

I would have to say they’re even. Take a look at the other post for the list of benefits from Discover, but the cashback is x2 what chase offers during the first year with them. On top of that, you get $100 total for signing up with someone’s referral link + $50 ($100 your first year) for every person you refer; Chase doesn’t offer such a program. But, Chase’s intro APR offer last way longer than Discover’s 6 months and Visa is pretty much accepted everywhere. On top of that, like Discover, they also offer price protection!

So should you get this card?: I would say so, if you  are under 5/24 & have a credit score over 700. If not and even if you are, you should still take a look at Discover’s Student Credit Card.
