Final Day To Register For Chase Freedom Q3 Spending, Q4 Registration Begins Tomorrow


You can view credit card offers by clicking on the “Other Credit Cards” tab on top of the DansDeals banner to view links for card offers. You can click on the link that says “View all card offers by issuing bank” and scroll down to view all card offers from the bank of your choice.

Today is the final day to activate this quarter’s Chase Freedom 5% categories.

You must register for Q3 bonus spending at restaurants and wholesale clubs by today and complete spending by September 30th.

Chase Freedom is an excellent no annual fee card thanks to its quarterly 5% categories. While they call it 5% cash back, you’ll really get 5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent which can be worth much more than 5% cash. For $1,500 in spending per quarter you will earn at least 30,000 Ultimate Rewards points over the course of a year (7,500 points per quarter at 5 points per dollar spent). If you or your spouse also has a Chase Sapphire Reserve card you’ll actually be earning 7.5% cash back towards travel expenses or real airline/hotel miles for spending on Freedom bonus categories.

While Chase Freedom is a great card for the bonus categories, it’s not a great card for everyday spending. However the Chase Freedom Unlimited card is excellent for everyday spending.

2016 Chase Freedom bonus categories:
Q1: Gas stations and local commuter transportation
Q2: Grocery stores and Wholesale clubs like BJs, Costco, and Sams Club.
Q3: Restaurants and Wholesale clubs.
Q4: Department stores, Drug stores, Wholesale clubs.

Thanks Dan!


Do they change the categories every year? Last year the end of the year was Amazon and it seems like that is no longer true.

Was hoping on getting the 10X on amazon again this year… I guess they felt it was too easy 😉


I heard that Chase Freedom will not have the alternating categories next year 2017. Is this true?
