Chase Freedom 2019 Quarter 1 Categories
Chase Freedom is one of the more popular rewards credit cards. With no annual fee, 5X rotating bonus categories and points that convert to Ultimate Rewards when paired with a premium card, it is a product worth considering. I personally have a few. 😉
Unlike Discover who released their categories all at once, Chase likes to drip the Freedom’s bonus categories out by quarter. Today we have learned which categories will earn 5% back on the Chase Freedom in the first quarter of 2019 on up to $1,500 in spend. Let’s take a look!
Chase Freedom January – March, 2019 Bonus Categories
Here are the just announced bonus categories for Chase Freedom from January – March, 2019:
- Gas Stations: Even as gas prices fluctuate, Chase Freedom cardmembers can maximize their spending and earn 5% cash back when they fuel up at gas stations.
- Drugstores: From everyday necessities to stocking up on cold medicine this flu season, Chase Freedom is helping customers earn cash back on many of their winter must-haves.
- Tolls: Whether it’s visiting colleges, weekend getaways or just their daily commute – Chase Freedom cardmembers can earn 5% cash back on tolls on their next trip.
Chase Freedom Sign-Up Bonus
If you don’t currently have the Chase Freedom card (and aren’t over 5/24), it can be a great first card to get with Chase. It also comes with a 0% purchase APR for 15 months and a $150 sign-up bonus after $500 in spend. More Info.
With the ability to earn 5% back at gas stations and drug stores, there is plenty of opportunity to max out the $1,500 in spend in the first quarter even if you don’t live in a state with an abundance of tolls. In other words, these categories signal a good start to the year with the Chase Freedom card.
