I called up to have them link my new checking account to my freedom card.  They kept transferring me back and forth between the credit cards department and the telephone banking department.  I was told that they were unable to link the accounts.  I then asked if they could set up my freedom card to serve as overdraft protection for my checking account.  They were able to do this.  I'm hoping this will successfully link the two together to be eligible for the Freedom Exclusives 10 & 10.

They told me it will happen automatically, within 3 billing cycles.

Do I gain anything by opening a checking account online over going into a branch?
I have a freedom card for a couple of years already... its a shame I didn't know about this when I got the card.
(I guess that's what happens when you don't follow DDF the proper way!)
I only paid 15% by switching to dansdeals

Is it worth it to apply for freedom and a checking account online now? Any chance of getting on the exclusives before it stops?
Also my license just expired, is it possible they wont pick up if i put a wrong expiry date on the checking application?

Worth a shot IMHO.

They ask for license on application?

I linked mine in a bank and it activated on the spot. I would suggest go to branch and apply there if you get approved they most probally will do it on the spot. + if you expired license better bet the branch if you get a nice rep

Change the issue and exp by YEAR, not by month or day, san they'll likely catch on it since its tied to your DOB.

try. couldn't hurt to have made a mistake....
But if you change month or day they 'll likely catch, also if you move exp. year with 1 year dont move the issue year for more than a year, and so on.

I got approved 11/6. Sent a SM to be enrolled in the Chase Exclusives Program, And this is the answer I got.

Thank you for contacting us about your Freedom account.

I would like to inform you that existing Chase Freedom
Customers with an open Chase checking account (Consumer or
Business) will be automatically upgraded to the Chase
Freedom Exclusives 10 & 10 products within approximately
1-3 billing cycles. Additionally, notification letters,
rewards brochures, and Terms & Conditions will be mailed
approximately 3-4 weeks after the account has been
upgraded.

I hope the above information helps. If you have any
further questions, please reply using the Secure Message
Center.

Does it mean that I will still be grandfathered in the program? Looking that it was written existing, does it include me? (Didn't get the card yet).
