[ Edited ]

When does Chase usually announce the next quarter's categories?

 

Thanks! :smileyhappy:

Hotels, airlines, Best Buy, and Kohl's next quarter.  Hotels and airlines are decent, though I'm already getting bonus points with those and there's a $1500 cap, but Best Buy and Kohl's?  Those aren't categories, they're stores.

Hmm....5% on Best Buy might be worth my while, the airline also. DW wants to fly out to KS.

Re: Chase Freedom Quarterly Categories

if they matched my limit at best buy it would be worth it. 

 

but 5% on 500 vs rzpoints on 2500?

 

or if they upped my limit id put my cruise/mexico trip on it but no dice. 

amex will be getting that with a pre payment.

I find it very dissapointing. Through shop discover, I can get %5 back any time of the year. Plus discover has %5 cash back on department stores and online shopping. Now that's a category.

I was looking for a discover card replacement with my chase freedom, but looks like discover will for sure still be my card of choice.

My ultimate credit wish,
a JP Morgan Palladium card

Re: Chase Freedom Quarterly Categories

Next quarter my Chase Freedom will get no use.  The categories are so unappealing.  I'm not traveling nor staying in a hotel, and I have not shopped in Best Buy in forever, plus I've been even stepped foot in a Kohl's.

My Wallet:
Discover It $14,300 | Chase United $12,000 | Chase Sapphire Preferred $7,000 | Chase Freedom $5,000 | Citi Simplicity $5,000 | AMEX BCE $4,200 | Paypal Extras Platinum $5,000 | Wells Fargo $1,000 | AMEX Zync NPSL

don't forget to use your rewardzone number on any best buy purchases, you can earn 1-1.25% bonus pts even if you do use your freedom card instead of your bestbuy card. 

 

I love stacking reward programs, my best rewards came during this quarter, 5% on resturants + I registered my card at idine.com  a few local resturants are part of the program, I got 5% back after $250 in spending at there resturants it goes to 10% and now during the summer they are giving an extra $5 for each $100 spent so for some of my resturant spending I got 20% cash back on some resturants. idine rewards come on pre-paid amex gift cards once a month when you have more than $20 in rewards balance.  

Cards: Chase Southwest 20k & CSP 10k & Freedom 6.6k & Amtrak 4.6k, FNBO DISC 14.9k Oregon Duck 5k, & AMEX BCP 15k & Hilton Surpass 7.5k & Delta Gold 6k & Zync NPSL, Fidelity AMEX 12k Sally Mae5k Sams Club MC 10k, Paypal Extras MC 6k, CapOne Venture 15k, QS 2.5k, QS 750, Amazon 5k, Walmart 10k, Citi Simplicity 7k, HHonors Gold 1k (moved 5k CL to Simplicity), Discover IT 10k and a nice stack of store cards.
