Annual Fee

The Chase Freedom Unlimited Card does not have an annual fee which is superb considering the earning rates of the card and the fact that you can redeem these rewards for 1.25/1.5 cents if you have an Ultimate Rewards Credit Card.

Authorized User Fee

There is no fee to add authorized users to the Chase Freedom Unlimited Card. I recommend adding friends and family to the card to easily help build up your rewards.

Foreign Transaction Fee

The Chase Freedom Unlimited Card has a 3% foreign transaction fee which makes it a bad option for international spend.
