The Chase Freedom card is one of my favorites for a couple of reasons.  First off, it doesn’t carry an annual fee, so it is a card that can stay in your wallet and increase the average age of your accounts on your credit report.  Also, the points earned on the card can be transferred to a Chase premium card such as the Sapphire Preferred or Ink Bold and then onto travel partners such as Hyatt and United.  Lastly, each quarter the Freedom card has bonus categories that give 5x points per dollar spent up to $1500 per quarter.


Chase has just announced what those bonus categories will be for 2014.  Here is how it looks.

               Quarter 1: Gas stations, movie theaters, Starbucks stores

               Quarter 2: Restaurants, Lowes Home Improvement Stores

               Quarter 3: Gas Stations, Kohls

               Quarter 4:,, Select Department Stores

Right now the Chase Freedom card is offering $200 cash back or 20,000 Ultimate Rewards points (If you have a card eligible for transfers like mentioned before) after spending $500 in the first three months after getting the card.  This is a card I think everyone should have in their wallet and one I keep in mine!  You can apply directly from Chase here.
