Is the Freedom Unlimited 3x everywhere offer worth a 5/24 slot?

Last year, the Chase Freedom Unlimited briefly offered a sign-up bonus of 3x everywhere for a year. Yesterday, Doctor of Credit reported that this offer has returned in-branch, albeit this time with a cap: earn 3x everywhere on the first $20,000 in purchases in the first year. There’s no doubt that 3x Ultimate Rewards on every purchase sounds awesome, but with Chase applying the 5/24 rule to so many of its best cards, is it worth…

60K Sapphire banking bonus w/ $75K deposit

Sapphire Reserve vs Preferred

As had been previously rumored, Chase will be launching a 60,000 point bonus for those who sign up for or upgrade to a Sapphire bank account and move $75,000 in new deposits / investments to Chase and leave it there for at least 90 days. That will be too steep a requirement for some, but for those with cash or investments to move and a Sapphire Preferred or Reserve in their wallet, it could be worth the time and…

We were looking to split a 14-hour drive to Georgia over two days, stopping somewhere along the way for a quick overnight. I planned to use the Chase Travel Portal to book a hotel for our overnight stay on the way down, but I couldn’t book a last-minute stay with Chase. Needed a basic road trip overnight Looking…

My Experience Using Chase Sapphire Reserve Rental Car Insurance

Hail stones in Melbourne

The hailstones were the size of golf balls. We visited Melbourne, Australia for Christmas last year and had been enjoying the great weather. We’d visited St Kilda beach that morning to take advantage of the 98° temperature and were now in the comfort of the air conditioning at our friends’ house that evening. The freak storm came out of nowhere. One moment it was quiet outside, the next our friends’ kids had leaped out of…
