Chase Freedom card combos
This card is excellent to have in conjunction with a Chase Sapphire Reserve or Chase Sapphire Preferred, both of which unlock transfers to airlines and hotels and an ability to combine your points between them.
Some people even hold the "trifecta" of a Chase Sapphire Reserve or Chase Sapphire Preferred for travel and dining, a Chase Freedom (for the rotating categories), and a Chase Freedom Unlimited which earns a flat 1.5x Ultimate Rewards on all purchases.
More Advice from MilesTalk:
Note: You will only be approved for a Chase card if you have applied for fewer than 5 personal credit cards within the last 24 months from any issuer. (Business cards do not count against the total, except for Capital One and Discover, but are subject to the policy). Learn more about the 5/24 rule here.
