What is Chase price protection?
This feature was used to reimburse you the price difference if you buy an eligible item with a Chase card with price protection, then see the same item selling for less elsewhere. You had 90 days to make a claim and Chase’s benefit administrator would compensate you for the price difference.
You could get reimbursed up to $500 per item and up to $2,500 each year.
Which Chase credit cards still have price protection?

Do the Chase Freedom Flex℠ credit cards have price protection?
As of August 26, 2018, neither the Chase Freedom Flex℠ credit card nor the Chase Freedom Unlimited® credit card offers price protection. Previously, the cards offered reimbursement for price drops up to 90 days after eligible purchases, with a $500 max per item and $2,500 cap per year.
Price protection: Chase vs. other providers
Chase used to let you claim price protection with Internet ads in addition to print ads. Some providers require you to submit print ads.
Unlike some of its competitors, Chase also offered price protection for cash-only, liquidation, close-out and going-out-of-business sales. But the per-item cap for these sales is lower, at $50. And there’s a low $150 overall cap per year.
Secondary price protection
Chase price protection was secondary. This means if the store you bought your item from offers a price-difference refund or guarantee, you must collect from that policy before making a claim with Chase.
Secondary protection is common with credit card issuers. For example, credit card car rental insurance is often secondary, meaning you must make a claim with your personal insurance provider first.

Who gets to use Chase price protection?
You’re eligible for Chase price protection if you’re an eligible cardholder and your card offers the benefit.
Cards from other providers that offer price protection
Very few providers offer price protection across the board. Instead, you’ll need to look for individual cards with the benefit, and even then your pickings can be scarce.
Here are a few personal credit cards that still offer price protection as of this writing:
- UBS Visa Infinite credit card
- HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard® credit card
- Rakuten Cash Back Visa® Credit Card
- Wells Fargo Visa Signature® Card
- Navy Federal More Rewards American Express® Card
With eligible Amex cards, price protection is called Best Value Guarantee.
Note that price protection is not guaranteed in any card, and the benefit can vary between accounts. Issuers remove the perk all the time, so verify with your issuer first before applying for a card.
Like many other issuers, Chase has removed price protection from most of its credit cards. However, you can still find price protection with some credit cards.
