Chase Freedom Unlimited Card Survey Reveals a “Fun Gap” in America

Customers of Chase’s newest cash back product can use cash back
in any amount to inject small moments of fun to boost
daily happiness

WILMINGTON, Del.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–America is experiencing a deep “fun gap,” according to a new Chase
Freedom Unlimited Card survey. While nearly all (97%) believe fun is
important in their day, nearly two-thirds (58%) say they feel limited in
their ability to live a fun, happy life.

Only half (53%) say they’re having enough fun – and a full 47% limit
their own fun, intentionally.

Chase Freedom Unlimited, a credit card launched in March 2016 and available
now online
, lets customers earn an unlimited 1.5% cash back on
everything they buy – with the ability to redeem for cash back – any
amount, anytime.

Emma Seppälä
, Stanford University expert on the science of
happiness, health and success, says that the ability to inject small,
incremental moments of fun and happiness into your daily life is key to
reducing stress.

“If we focus on boosting fun and happiness in our lives, even in little
ways, research suggests we can end up more productive, charismatic,
energetic and innovative,” said Dr. Seppälä. “The Chase Freedom
Unlimited Card survey results suggest that there are unlimited
opportunities for fun in everyday moments, experiences and things.”

Dr. Seppälä, author of The Happiness Track, Stanford psychologist
and TEDx
, partnered with Chase to share her research on why happiness
and fun in our lives matter and to provide tips to add a little more fun
to our day.

“Our customers use their cards for the essentials in life and enjoy
their cash back for fun things,” said Pam Codispoti, President of Chase
Branded Cards. “Our new Freedom Unlimited card gives people 1.5% cash
back on everything they buy and they can use their cash back for little
things like coffee or save them up for a larger event like a spa day.”


The Chase Freedom Unlimited survey of 1,013 Americans ages 18+ was
conducted by ORC International, the research firm which is conducting
CNN’s political polls throughout the U.S. Presidential election. The
online omnibus study was conducted March 21-23, 2016.
