Chase Freedom Quarterly Categories

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

 

Thanks! Smiley Happy

Re: Chase Freedom Quarterly Categories

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,

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:
AMEX Platinum | Discover It $20.3k | Chase Sapphire Reserved $16k | Chase United $12k | AMEX SimplyCash Plus Business $11.6k | AMEX Schwab $9k | AMEX BCEP $8.2k | Citi Costco Anywhere Visa $8k | Chase Amazon Visa $8k | Chase Sapphire Preferred $7k | Chase Freedom $5k | Citi Simplicity $5k | Paypal Extras Platinum $5k | Wells Fargo $5k | Citi Best Buy $4.2k | Citi Visa Signature $3k | Care Credit $3k

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 & CSR 10k & CSP 10k & Freedom 6.6k & Amtrak/Freedom 4.6k, FNBO DISC 25.1k Oregon Duck 5k, & AMEX BCP 15k & Hilton Surpass 7.5k & Delta Gold 6k & Zync NPSL, Fidelity AMEX 17k Commerce5.9k & Cash Forward 7.5k & Sams Club MC 10k, Paypal Extras MC 7.5k, CapOne Venture 15k, QS 2.5k, QS 750, Amazon 5.9k, Walmart 10k, Citi Simplicity 9k, Discover IT 16k and a nice stack of store cards.
