chase-freedom-categories-2015-q3The Chase Freedom is a great card to have, and one of the reasons is that it’s a no-fee card that still earns valuable Ultimate Rewards. Also, if you have a premium Chase card (such as the Sapphire or the Chase Ink card) that you want to cancel, you can transfer it down into a Freedom (and keep your Ultimate Rewards points). Just make sure that you transfer your points to a card you’re going to keep BEFORE you cancel!

Normally the Ultimate Rewards are just worth 1 cent each, but if you have a premium card, then you can transfer your points to Chase’s partners (like United, Southwest and others).

Chase Freedom 2015 Q3 categories

The other nice part of the Freedom card is that they have quarterly bonuses, where each quarter, you earn 5% back in a select number of categories.  The Chase Freedom 2015 categories that you’ll earn a 5% bonus on during Q3 are at gas stations and Kohl’s.

Remember that the bonus is good on the first $1500 of spending, so up to 7500 Ultimate Rewards. Any spending you do over and above $1500 will just earn the regular 1%.

Also remember that you DO need to activate your card in order to take advantage of the Chase Freedom 2015 Q3 5% bonuses – the link to activate your Chase Freedom 5% is here!

There’s no downside to activating, so I recommend going ahead and activating regardless of if you think you’ll spend anything on your card.  As soon as you activate your card, you’ll start earning 5x points at gas stations and Kohl’s with your Chase Freedom card until September 30th.
