Re: Chase Freedom 2013 Category

I don't drink coffee and rarely go to drugstores. The others might be useful but I won't max them out by a long shot.

No Best Buy in the 4th quarter? Suckage.

I just purchased a TV and got $35 from the 5% cashback PLUS the 10-10 bonuses.

 

No groceries either? Looks like the BCE is going into heavy rotation mode for me.

At least the Freedom will be seeing usage in the first three quarters. Maybe this will make it easier to decide between Freedom and More.

hmmm 1 cup of starbucks nasty generic burned coffee $2 + 10 points = 12 x 10% 13.2x 25% for Chase Sapphire transfer for travel = 16.5 points for a cup of burned nasty coffee still not worth it

Starbucks coffee isn't worth it even if it were free.

Best Buy typically does not have the "best" price, if you catch my drift. I bought Panasonic TC-L42ET5 from Amazon for $600, while Best Buy goes for $800 right now (which is $30 more expensive than standard Amazon price, $770). You did compare your price to other sellers right?

 

It does have Amazon.com as 5% category, which I think is better than Best Buy.

only thing decent there is a green tea frap but that's like 600+ calories and is more like ice cream slush lol, I used to work at one I complained why the coffee tasted like **bleep**. basically they burn the beans on purpose to give it a strong flavor, and people think it's a stronger cup of joe, in reality it drops the caffeine content down so your really getting burned weak coffee. but in seattle where most depressed % of people in America live it makes sense since they want strong to perk them up but think starbucks has the strongest coffee (when it's really otherway around) If you go there the only coffee that's decent is the breakfast blend since it's actually NOT BURNT.

also bestbuy recodes their merchandise with the manufacturer. For instance my TV is a 6000 but they renumbered it to 6001 which does not exist besides in bestbuy so NO ONE can price match it lol
