Chase checking customers get extra rewards with Freedom

Postby bgeery » Tue Mar 06, 2012 2:49 am

I've not seen this info mentioned anywhere, but the Rewards Program Details page shows the following:
As a Chase Checking customer, you get even more exclusive benefits.

  • Earn 10% extra points on every $1 you spend
  • Plus 10 bonus points on every purchase
So Chase checking customers are receiving 1.1% on everyday purchases, and (maybe) 5.5% on category purchases, and plus 10 point for every purchase. This is a great deal. Hope the review gets updated with this info.

But you have to have a checking account with them.

Chase checking is free with direct deposit. I've read that people set up a scheduled monthly transfer online between a Chase checking and savings account and back again and that counts as well. I moved to Chase a couple of years ago from Citibank when they (at least for a time) eliminated their free checking.

Chase is free for me. I do two (sometimes three depending on month/when I get paid) direct deposits and pay a $0 fee. I also have no minimum due to the direct deposit. I love Chase and have had no issues with them. The only thing that stinks for me personally is due to me switching job locations my closest Chase is ten minutes away (used to be a minute drive from my last job location, but I switched locations in March).

I've been using the Chase Freedom rewards card most of the time, and the extra 10% + 10 points per purchase adds up for me. From the latest month of purchases:

Points earned on purchases 898
10% Bonus Points per $1 You Spend 90
Bonus 10 Points on Every Purchase 470
Bonus from 5% categories: Jan - Mar 377

So I received just over 2% back. Not bad. 30% of my total points were generated via the 10% + 10 point per purchase bonuses for being a Chase checking customer. This is a great small purchase card. For example, a small $10 purchase will net you 2.1% back, and a $5 purchase will get you 3.1% back, and a $1 purchase gets you any amazing 11.1% back! :) This card (with the checking customer bonuses) combined with the AMEX Blue Cash Everyday make a great combo.

BofA also offers a 10% reward bonus when rewards go into a BofA checking account.
