Chase Freedom Flex

Earns: Cash Back

GigaTake:

A good cash back card. Bonus categories change every quarter and offer 5% cash back, a great rate, but it can be confusing and is limited to $1,500 in purchases. Consider the simpler Chase Freedom Unlimited instead.

This card is best for:

  • Dining
  • Drugstores
