Since you have accounts at Chase it may be easier for you to qualify for the Chase Freedom card. Note that there is a card that is similar to the Chase Freedom credit card – the Discover it® Cash Back credit card. Like the Chase’s card, this card will allow you to earn 5% cash back in rotating categories and 1% back everywhere else. The Discover card is not a Visa card, but you should not face any problems with card’s acceptance. Another thing that is different is the interest rate. The Discover it card comes with a lower interest rate of 11.49% – 23.49%. However, the 0% intro APR is for 14 months (when the introductory interest rate is over, the ongoing APR will apply), which is a month shorter than of the Chase Freedom card. Both cards have no annual fee. So, if you are not approved for the Chase card, you may want to apply for its almost twin card – the Discover it® Cash Back card.
