Just a friendly reminder to use up your April to June Chase Freedom 5x category bonus!
Remember that the rotating 5x or 5% category bonus will end tomorrow on the Chase Freedom card. If you have any groceries to buy for the upcoming holiday weekend, and you have some of your allotted $1500 leftover to spend…what are you waiting you?! But don’t fret, you have a fresh round of great 5x categories including Amazon and Whole Foods.
How we use Chase Freedom to get closer to lie-flat seats and 5 star suites.
If you’re like me and carry a Chase Premium credit card like the Sapphire Preferred, Sapphire Reserve, or Ink Business Preferred then you can combine your Freedom points into those accounts in order to transfer them into valuable partners.
This is by far the most advantageous usage of Ultimate Rewards, but also increases the value when redeemed in the Chase Travel center. For instance, if you move them into a Chase Sapphire Reserve account, your points will instantly be redeemable for 1.5 cents per point, a 50% increase over redeeming them in the Freedom Chase Travel Center.
