Chase dropped an announcement on a new personal no annual fee credit card called Chase Freedom Flex. The card will be available for new applications starting September 15, 2020, and the existing Chase Freedom card will be discontinued for new applications. Chase Freedom Unlimited will also get new earning and benefits starting September 15, 2020. 

There are actually quite a few good things going on for the Freedom Flex and Freedom Unlimited cards in terms of their benefits and cash back earnings. In this post, I want to take a closer look at all 3 Freedom cards.
