A Chase credit card, in our opinion, is one of the best credit cards to have in your wallet these days. Issued by JPMorgan Chase (JPM), one of the biggest banks in the US, a Chase card may let you earn rewards, cash rebates, free air tickets, free hotel nights or even unique experiences.
Besides offering MasterCard (MA) and Visa (V) cards, Chase also partners with hotels and airlines like United (UAL) to offer co-branded cards. Since Chase credit card offers include a large selection of cards in different categories, it can be confusing for you to pick one to apply for.
Having written many Chase card reviews, I'll let you in on our top rated Chase cards. Here is a list of our best rated Chase cards with rewards, 0% APR or bonus miles:
Chase Freedom® is Chase's flagship card. In my opinion, Chase Freedom offers the most value to shoppers as it is one of the best cash back cards in the market. You get up to 5% cash rebates on certain types of purchases each quarter, and a standard 1% rebate (unlimited) on all others. You also earn a $100 Bonus after you spend $500 on purchases during the first 3 months, and an extra $25 Bonus after you add an authorized user and make a purchase within this same 3-month period. There is no minimum purchase required and your cash rewards never expire. This card has no annual fee. New cardholders get a 0% intro APR for 15 months on purchases and balance transfers. After that, there is a 13.99% - 22.99% variable APR for both purchases and balance transfers.
