Go ahead and do that before you forget. You don’t want to miss out on any potential earnings just because you forgot to sign up for the bonus. This year the two major 5x categories in the third quarter are gas stations and Kohl’s. Now, maxing out every quarter isn’t easy, but possible for some. I maxed out the first quarter, which had grocery stores, movie theaters, and Starbucks as categories. I also maxed out the second quarter, which included restaurants, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Overstock.com. I’m thinking the third quarter will be slightly harder to max out for me. I don’t think I spend $1,500 a quarter on gas, and I know I don’t spend that much at Kohl’s...like ever.
The Chase Freedom card is a great card to have in your back pocket. It’s lucrative with just the 5% cash back, and even more so if you’re willing to pay $95 a year for the CSP to pair the two. At the very least, it’s something to think about. Do you have the Freedom?
