Chase Freedom Bonus Categories Q4 2018
The categories for the fourth quarter of 2018 have now been made public, although they’re not yet available in the Chase website. The new 5% categories include wholesale clubs and department stores – and also one of the most popular categories, Chase Pay.
- Wholesale clubs
- Department stores
- Chase Pay
You can earn 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in combined purchases in these categories from October 1st through December 31st.
The fourth quarter of 2018 should be pretty easy to maximize with Chase Pay and Wholesale Clubs especially. Also do not forget to take advantage of the current bonus categories.
