Chase Freedom and Amazon purchases this quarter
In order to earn the 5%, do you have to buy from Amazon directly or is it ok if you purchase from a merchant through amazon's site? Has anyone already had some experience with this? Curious about what you have to say.

You have to go through Chase's mall.

Wow, pretty good deal.  Sure makes it tempting, especially with the $200 promo.  With all these great offers, there's just no way to garden.

You don't have to. The Freedom has its own 5% CB category. The mall is a different category on its own.
