Chase Freedom Q3 Bonus Categories (and Previous Ones!)


Ready for the Q3 5X bonus categories from Chase Freedom? We now know what to expect and look forward to.


From July 1, 2019 until September 30, 2019, you can earn a huge 5X bonus on gas station and streaming service purchases. You can earn up to $1500 in bonuses!


For customers who use Netflix, Hulu, Sling, Vudu, FuboTV, Apple Music, SiriusXM, Pandora, Spotify, or any combination of these services, this is huge, since this is the first time Chase has offered streaming services as a bonus category.


For customers who use a Chase credit card that accumulates Ultimate Rewards, such as the Chase Sapphire Reserve, or the Chase Sapphire Preferred cards, this 5X cash back bonus turns into 5X Ultimate Rewards points.


To be eligible for the 5X quarterly bonus offer, you will need to sign up to activate your cash back. While you are there, don’t forget to activate your Q2 bonus for home improvement and grocery stores, and earn some cash back for the last few weeks of the quarter.


You can register for the quarterly bonus through the Chase Mobile App, too!


Visit the Chase Bonus Activation Page, enter your name, last 4 digits of your card, and your billing zip code, click “Activate Now,” and you are all set!


If the Chase Freedom quarterly bonuses sound good to you and you are not yet a cardholder, this is a terrific time to sign up. Chase Freedom is currently offering a $150 sign up bonus (equivalent to 15K points) after you spend only $500 in the first 3 months.
