From the CompareCards.com Editorial Team

Chase rolled out the new Chase Freedom Flex℠ credit card in September 2020 and it’s pretty enticing. Not only does the card offer 5% cash back in rotating categories every quarter, it also boasts an elevated rewards rate for dining and travel instead of the standard 1% on all other purchases not included in the rotating spending categories. Plus, it’s a World Elite Mastercard, which comes with cellphone protection, free ShopRunner membership and Lyft and Boxed discounts.

The Not so Good
