Do the points on Freedom ever expire?

Postby gold-rick » Mon Nov 26, 2012 1:33 pm

Hey guys -

I was just recently approved for the Chase Freedom with a limit of 2k. I was interested by the spend $500 in 3 months and get 10,000 points ($100 value)

I'm curious, do Chase Freedom points ever expire?

They sure don't, as long as your account doesn't default. Congrats on the approval, and get that 10k bonus!

As of now they don't, but who knows what the future will hold. Chase seems to change their policies on the fly, but then again so do all banks.

I wouldn't count on them changing their no expiration policy in the foreseeable future. With all of the other major players offering non-expiring rewards, it just wouldn't make them competitive to take such a step backwards like that.

No, but they do dilute their rewards.
Previously, I could redeem 25,000 points for a $325 max value airline ticket.
Now, I want to say that 1 point = $1 in travel.

Ehh, teach me to post late at night... if I redeem 25,000 points, I only get a $250 airline ticket.
