The Fine Print

Freedom:

  • 5% Back in the grocery store category (excluding Walmart and Target) until the earlier of the end of your first 12 months or first $12,000 spent: You’ll earn 5% Cash Back rewards total for each $1 spent on purchases in the grocery store category (excluding Walmart and Target) made within your first 12 months from account opening, or until you reach $12,000 in grocery store purchases, whichever occurs first (4% additional Cash Back rewards on top of the 1% Cash Back rewards earned on each purchase). The additional 4% Cash Back rewards will appear on your billing statement in a separate line from the base 1% Cash Back rewards.

Freedom Unlimited:

The additional 3.5% Cash Back rewards will appear on your billing statement in a separate line from the base 1.5% Cash Back rewards.

Our Verdict

Same as the $200 offer available online, this is just an extra $50 when applying in branch. Definitely worth doing if you were already considering the $200 offer. Will add this to our list of the best credit card bonuses. For more details on this offer I’d recommend reading the original $200 offer post.
