UPDATE: Updated 6/2/2015 as the offer is back.
I wrote yesterday about the Chase Freedom quarterly bonuses for Q1 of 2015 being announced. As part of doing the research for that post, I also noticed that the signup bonus for the Chase Freedom is (back) up to 20,000 Ultimate Rewards (which Chase insists on calling $200). I have a Chase refer a friend link that gives me 5000 Ultimate Rewards if you are approved, which as far as I know is the same as the best public offer. I’ve got other ways that you can support PWaC, if you’re dying to do so 😉
Great no-fee card to keep your Chase Ultimate Rewards
I had a Chase Ink and Chase Sapphire card over the past year, but when their annual fees came due, I decided to cancel those cards and transfer my Ultimate Rewards points over to my Freedom card.

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 chasereferafriend.com.
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. Fine print states:
You will receive 5,000 bonus points, which can be redeemed for $50 cash back, for each friend you refer through this Refer A Friend offer by 6/15/2015 (up to 10), who gets and uses the card by 9/23/2015. Maximum bonus point accumulation for this offer is 50,000 bonus points (which equates to $500 cash back). We may provide you with future opportunities to earn bonus points by referring your friends to Chase Freedom. You may earn bonus points up to the stated maximum for each offer, however, please note that if you take advantage of multiple opportunities within one calendar year that the maximum number or bonus points that can be awarded from all referral offers is 50,000 per calendar year. Please allow 6 to 8 weeks after each new cardmember’s First Use of the card for bonus points to post to your account.
