Here is a copy of one of the secure messages that was received from Chase regarding a customer wanting to product change their current Chase Freedom to the new Unlimited card:
Also as a reminder that today is the last day to activate your 5% cash back for the first quarter (gas stations, local commuter transportation) which you can do by visiting https://creditcards.chase.com/freedom/activate. Then starting tomorrow you can activate for next quarter's bonus category (grocery stores).
While it appears that it is now possible to apply for the new Chase Freedom Unlimited card, I am probably going to wait until next month when the online application becomes available. I am always hesitant about applying for new cards, partly because I am paranoid about my credit score and the hard inquiries that are involved, and also because of Chase's new "5/24 rule" which limits you to how many credit cards you can obtain in a 24 month period. That is why my wallet tends to be pretty thin, especially compared to many of the other hobbyists out there but I currently need a card for all my non-bonus spend. Are you planning to apply for this new card?
