The Chase Slate Edge is specifically aimed at those people who have at least “good” credit but need some help with either existing credit card balances with high APRs or to finance new purchases using the 0% Introductory APR offer (detailed above in Key Facts).
Because it doesn’t earn rewards, it’s not our first choice of card if you are opening a new card for any other purpose. For instance, also with no annual fee, you could earn 1.5% cash back on the Chase Freedom Unlimited® card. Or, for just a $95 annual fee, you could reap the many benefits of the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card.
But if your reason for a new card is to lower existing debt or finance new debt, the Chase Slate Edge could be right for you.
