The Chase Freedom (learn more) has been a staple card in my wallet for years. It’s an amazing card that allows you to earn up to 30,000 Ultimate Rewards points per year (7,500 per quarter) with its quarterly rotating 5x bonus categories.
What a great perk for a no-annual fee card and earns points that are transferable to many travel partners like United, Hyatt, Southwest, etc. when paired with a premium Ultimate Rewards card such as the Sapphire Preferred (learn more) or Sapphire Reserve (learn more).
Today, Chase Freedom announced its Q3 5% cash back quarterly categories, which include Lyft, Walgreens and gas stations.
As always, you’ll have to activate the offer starting June 15 before you can earn 5x on qualifying purchases between July 1 and September 30.
I always go out of my way each quarter to earn 7,500 points by maximizing the rotating 5% quarterly bonus categories with my Chase Freedom card. I use Lyft regularly and spend my fair share at gas stations and Walgreens, so this will be a pretty easy one to fulfill.
What are your thoughts about the Q3 bonus categories?
