Today Chase unveils the Freedom Flex credit card as well as new cash back offerings for Freedom Unlimited, both available starting September 15, 2020.

These no-fee credit cards shake up the current cash back category with opportunities to earn 3% on drug store purchases, 3% when dining out or with takeout and eligible delivery, as well as 5% on travel purchased through Chase Ultimate Rewards®. Freedom Flex cardmembers will also enjoy access to Mastercard’s World Elite Benefits and rotating 5% cash back bonus categories.

“Flex and Unlimited are the next evolution of the Chase Freedom credit card suite and challenge the status quo for what consumers expect from a no fee, cash back card,” said BJ Mahoney, General Manager of Chase Freedom. “Earning cash back on dining, including takeout and delivery, drug stores and travel through Chase Ultimate Rewards provides immense value for customers in both the immediate and long term.”
