Freedom Categories

Does Chase use the same categories for the same quarters every year with the Freedom card or is it varied?  I'm considering the Freedom for next year to go with my CSP.  However, I already have Discover.  I looked at the website and Chase is showing the rewards calendar for 2013  - nothing yet for 2014.

Starting score: Apr2012 – 635 EX
Current scores (USAA): EX-700, EQ-736, TU-687 (Walmart/Discover) TU-709
NFCU Flagship $22,000 | DiscoverIT $19,500 | SECU Visa $10,000 | CSP $5,000 | Chase Marriott $6,500 | Chase SW $15,000 | Chase Freedom $7,500 | AMEX SPG $11,000 | AMEX Hilton Surpass $5,000 | USAA AMEX $6,000 | Cap1QS $5,000 | Fuel Rewards $8,000 | BofA Visa $400 | JCP $4,600 | Lord&Taylor $4,000 | Walmart $5,000 | Kohl’s $1,500 | VS $1,630 | Lowes $6,000 | Loft MC $5,750 | Macy’s $2,800 | BR $5,000 | Target $300

Thanks!  I'll keep checking for the updated calendar.  I assume they usually announce in Dec.

Re: Freedom Categories

Does the Freedom calendar always overlap with Discover It's calendar, or is it just sometimes?

Re: Freedom Categories

I'm not sure Discover has released their 2014 categories yet either - at least, I haven't ever seen discussion about that until you posted this. I would love a link to that info.

If you are referring to what is posted on their website for existing categories, then you are referencing the 2013 categories. Restaurants and movies was the first quarter category in 2013, and they just haven't taken down the 2013 calendar.

Last year both Chase and Discover announced categories in late November/early December. I would expect the same this year.

The categories do sometimes overlap, but not all the time.

In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $22.200, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Chase CSP (4/14) $12,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Forward (12/12) $9,600, Chase Freedom (12/12) $5,000
