Chase recently announced the 3rd quarter 2017 bonus categories for their Chase Freedom card.
From July 1 to September 30, 2017, Freedom cardholders will be able to earn 5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar spent on the first $1,500 in restaurant and movie theater purchases. If you have a Freedom card, make sure to activate your spending bonus here.
A few other cards that offer quarterly rotating bonus categories have also announced their Q3 bonuses.
- Discover It: 5% back on restaurant purchases – activate here.
- Citi Dividend: 5% back on airlines and Hilton – activate here.
I always like it when the rotating categories include restaurants because that’s one of my main expense categories, but I wish that Discover and Freedom didn’t overlap that category so often because it’s not that big of an expense category. I will choose earning 5X Ultimate Rewards over 5% cash back with Discover since I have both of the cards.
