Freedom, Sapphire and Ink cardholders can also use their reward points to bid in an online auction of products like a PlayStation3 or Sony HDTV every weekday from Nov. 1 through Nov. 25 -- bidding starts at just one point. And those who plan to use their reward points to shop for merchandise on the Ultimate Rewards site on Cyber Monday save 25%.
Read the fine print: Most of these offers are for existing card members. Those who apply now must wait about seven days to receive their card after they are approved. There is no annual fee on most Freedom, Sapphire and Ink cards, but the Chase Sapphire Preferred and Ink Classic cards both charge $95, which is waived the first year.
While other banks are busy hiking fees, these financial institutions are bucking the trend by offering free checking and other perks.
