The limited-time offer below may no longer be available. The Chase Freedom® is not currently available to new cardholders. Please visit our list of the best cash-back cards for alternative options.
Chase announced a limited-time offer for its Freedom cards that maximizes the amount of cash back you can earn on hotel bookings. During the month of March, Chase Freedom® and Chase Freedom Unlimited® cardholders can earn 5% cash back on up to $2,500 in total hotel purchases made through Chase Ultimate Rewards®.
That's 4% more cash back than usual for Chase Freedom cardholders and 3.5% more cash back for Freedom Unlimited cardholders. Freedom cards offer 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in combined purchases in bonus categories each quarter you activate (then 1%) and 1% cash back on all other purchases. (Check out the Chase Freedom cash-back calendar.) Meanwhile, the Freedom Unlimited card offers 1.5% cash back on every purchase.
Keep in mind you need to book hotels through the Chase Ultimate Rewards portal. Any hotel bookings made directly with hotels or through third-party sites, such as Hotels.com or Booking.com, won't be eligible for 5% cash back.
This offer is unmatched by the Chase Sapphire Reserve® and Chase Sapphire Preferred® cards, which earn 3X and 2X points on travel worldwide, respectively.
If you're in the process of booking hotels or you've been contemplating a trip, now can be a great time to maximize rewards. And if you have a Sapphire and Freedom card, opt to use the Freedom card for booking hotels, then transfer your Ultimate Rewards® points to your Sapphire card to get 25% or 50% more value on Chase Ultimate Rewards travel bookings.
