How do you use your Chase Freedom?

I will be getting my Freedom in the mail in a few days and plan to use it for the bonus categories only. My everyday card is my Cap One QS. So, how do you use your Freedom?

Cap1 QS - 2k (4/21)
Mission Lane - 4k (11/21)
Venmo - 900 (11/21)
SavorOne - 2500 (12/21)
VentureOne - 2000 (7/22)

Re: How do you use your Chase Freedom?

It's my everyday card. I use it for everything I would use a debit card for and pay in full every month.  Way back when you could still earn Ultimate Rewards points using a Chase debit card  I had leftover points so due to having a bunch of rewards money already I use the Freedom instead of my QS.

I only use it in 5% categories.

Its currently gas so it took over where my sallie mae was gas.

 

I wonder what the next categorie is? Amazon right?

 

Everything else is CAP1 QS and large no interest purchases are put on my AMEX ED

Freedom clearly beats the SM right now for this quarter.  UR's > 5% straight cash back Smiley Happy.  SM is not going to get much spend this quarter

I just use it for my bonus categories, gas this month.  I use my CSP for dining and will combine both for UR points.  Everything else gets juggled between my other cards.
