chase-freedom-refer-a-friend-freedom-logoChase Freedom refer a friend is an offer that Chase runs periodically.  Usually the Chase Freedom refer a friend offer comes around 2-3 times a year, both with a signup bonus of 10,000 Ultimate Rewards as well as 20,000 Ultimate Rewards (though Chase insists on calling these $100 and $200).  I value Chase Ultimate Rewards at nearly 2 cents a point – in my opinion, they are the best miles out there.

At the time of this writing (June 2015) there is an active offer that gives $200, which you can see below in the table of all Chase Freedom refer a friend offers

Chase Freedom is a great no-fee card to keep your Chase Ultimate Rewards

I have had both a Chase Ink and Chase Sapphire card over the past year or so, but when their annual fees came due, I decided to cancel those cards and transfer my Ultimate Rewards points over to my Freedom card.

One of the benefits of the Chase Freedom card is the rotating categories where you can earn 5x points in various categories each quarter of the year.  Here are the 2015 Chase Freedom bonus categories.



In each quarter, you will get 5x Ultimate Rewards for your first $1500 of spend in the given category.

Getting your own Chase Freedom refer a friend link

If you already have a Chase Freedom card like I do, you can check to see if you are also eligible for a Chase refer a friend bonus at


They have done this before with other Chase cards, and it works the same.  You can get your own “affiliate” link if you are eligible.  I’ve found that the easiest way to get your own Chase refer a friend URL is to click on the Share Twitter or Share Facebook link which will give a popup with your link.

For each person that signs up with your link, you will earn 5000 Ultimate Rewards points, with a maximum of 10 referrals or 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points.
