Chase Freedom/Freedom Flex Q4 Categories: Paypal and Walmart

As subject reads. Thanks to people at Doctor of Credit for the information

Should be an easy category for me thanks to Paypal. To those that don't use it as much but still want a simple way to max the cap perhaps look into Paypal Key

I'm assuming that's only for Walmart online orders. I guess we can wait in suspense another day or two. 

 

Kinda really weak categories given the holiday season being right around the corner. 

 

Knowing Chase, it could have been worse, like "Concerts and cruises"

With paypal key, this basically translates into "Online shopping" so it's OK for me.

True. I'll pick one bill close to $1500 and call it a day.

I finally have my PayPal key just as the Q3 is ending and Discover won't have the 5% Cashback.  Perhaps it is time to call chase and go ahead and PC to the Freedom Flex!  It will be interesting to see how many more times PayPal is a category with PayPal key making it so easy to maximize cash back.  With this and Amazon on Discover for Q4, it will probably be the best month for Cashback that I have had in awhile.

Correct me if I'm wrong about this but if Q4 holds as PayPal the bonus Freedom category.

 

-PayPal debit card can be set up to be paid by a Chase Freedom card as the default payment source.

-Rakuten dining can then be set up to have PayPal debit card as its transaction source.

-Samsung Pay can also be set up for the PayPal debit card.

-PayPal Key can then be set up for online shopping.

 

$1500 spend on PayPal in Q4 should be no problem then for anyone.
