Update 8/18/21: They’ve now added Freedom Student and the Slate Edge card as part of the Freedom family, e.g. if you have a referral for the Freedom card you can refer to the Freedom, Freedom Unlimited, Freedom Student, or Slate Edge.
Original Post 1/7/21:
The Chase Freedom and Freedom Unlimited cards are now a single ‘family’ for the sake of referrals in that if you have a Freedom card you can refer to either the Freedom or Freedom Unlimited and vice versa.

The referral bonus for the referrer is $100/10,000 points on both cards, regardless of which card the new member signs up for. Previously, I believe the Freedom card was $50 and the Freedom Unlimited $100. In fact, it’s still showing those numbers on the public landing page (at the time of this writing), but when you input your info it shows the $100 bonus for Freedom cardholders who refer as well.
The signup bonus for the new member is $200 after $500 spend on both cards which is the same as the public offer.
Mid-2019 Chase made a similar move with regards to the Southwest cards. Will be interesting to see if the move evolves further and allows referrals to other of Chase’s own cards, like from Freedom to Sapphire.
Far as I know, you still get to max out the $500 limits on each card separately, for example, if you have both the Freedom and Freedom Unlimited cards, you can use your Freedom referral link to refer 5 friends and you can invite 5 more friends using your Freedom Unlimited card.
