Wow, call it one of the fastest credit card offers this year! The Chase Freedom Unlimited popped up an offer a couple of weeks ago that replaced the $150 sign-up bonus with a fabulous 3X earning on everything for a year.
No More Chase Freedom Unlimited 3X Everywhere
As of today, that deal is gone. I am not sure if this wasn’t ready for the public yet or if it had something to do with the rumors of the limiting of Ultimate Rewards pooling or something else.
If this did have anything to do with the Ultimate Rewards pooling rumor, it is a good thing. That is because it might have been too expensive for Chase to have offered 3X everywhere that would translate to 1.5 points per dollar when combined with the Chase Sapphire Reserve account. I would rather see the sign-up bonus of 3X everywhere disappear than the end of points pooling.
Or it may have nothing to do with any of that! At any rate, if it does come back and you had planned on getting it, jump on it. It is definitely a good deal. Moral of the story – don’t wait around on credit card offers that might look too good to be true! 🙂
Or, if you are under Chase 5/24, consider this nice big Chase Sapphire Preferred offer. If you put the $20K in spending on that card in a year, you will wind up with a total of 100,000 points (more if you do any spending in bonus categories). That equals a fantastic 5 Ultimate Reward points per dollar on exactly $20,000 in spending.
