The Chase Freedom credit card continues to maintain a spot in my wallet because of its rotating 5x bonus categories. The only catch to earning your bonus cash back, or points when teamed with a premium card, is activating those categories. This quarter, which ends December 31st, will give cardholders 5x at Department Stores, Chase Pay, and Wholesale Clubs like Costco and Sam’s Club.
With the holidays rapidly approaching this gives you and I some great opportunities to earn some valuable bonus points on purchases we’d be making for our loved ones anyways. Go here to activate your bonus categories.
Already have a premium Chase credit card like the Chase Sapphire Reserve or Preferred? Read this article about how you can build an Ultimate Reward earning mega wallet with a Trifecta or even Quadfecta of Chase cards.
