Chase Freedom Bonus Categories for Q1 2020

Chase Freedom is a great card to have in your wallet. It comes with no annual fee and it earns Ultimate Rewards points when you have another Chase premium card. Now the Chase Freedom bonus categories have been revealed for Q1 2020.

Chase Freedom Card

The Chase Freedom card earns 1% on all purchases but also 5% on rotating quarterly bonus categories, up to a combined $1,500 in purchases. So you can earn up to $75 every quarter, if you maximize the eligible categories. But it gets even better than that, since the cashback can be used as Ultimate Rewards points.

To do that, you need to have one of the premium or business cards from Chase. That’s Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Sapphire Reserve, Ink Business Preferred or Ink Business Plus. Then the points earned with your Chase Freedom card can be converted into Ultimate Rewards points and transferred to travel partners.

Chase Freedom Bonus Categories for Q1 2020

The categories for the third quarter of 2019 have now been made public. The new 5% categories include:

  • Gas stations
  • Select streaming services
  • Internet
  • Cable
  • Phone services

You can earn 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in combined purchases in these categories from January 1st through March 31, 2019.

Guru’s Wrap-Up

The first quarter of 2020 doesn’t have the best options for maximizing your 5% cashback, but gas stations should help. Some of them sell gift cards. Then you can switch all of your streaming services to the Chase Freedom card as well for three months. Don’t forget to take advantage of the current bonus categories. It’s now easier to track your bonus spending as well.

If you don’t have the card, you can sign up and earn a $150 bonus cash back when you spend $500 within the first three months. You can also convert other Chase cards to this one, if you want to have it but don’t really want to apply for a new card, especially with that low bonus.
