Chase Adds 5% Back on Gas to Freedom Flex and Unlimited Cards

With the recent increase in gas prices, driving to the grocery store, running errands, or a family road trip, filling up your tank can add up. Effective January 13, new cardmembers applying for a Chase Freedom Unlimited or Freedom Flex credit card can earn a $200 statement credit bonus plus up to 5% cash back on gas station purchases. New Chase Freedom Unlimited and Freedom Flex World Elite Mastercard holders earn a total of 5% cash back rewards for each $1 spent on purchases in gas stations made within the first year from opening an account or until they reach $6,000 in gas station purchases, whichever occurs first.

Beyond the new gas purchases cash back welcome offer, Freedom Unlimited and Flex cardmembers earn 5% back on travel purchased through Ultimate Rewards, 3% back on dining (including takeout and eligible delivery services) and drugstores, plus access to rotating quarterly 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in purchases in select categories. Unlimited cardmembers receive 1.5% cash back on all other purchases, while Flex cardmembers receive 1% back, making everyday spending even more rewarding.
