Chase Freedom Bonus Categories Quarter 4 2021
Chase Freedom Flex is one of the more popular rewards credit cards. With no annual fee, 5X rotating bonus categories, 3X on dining and drugstores and points that convert to Ultimate Rewards when paired with a premium card, it is a product worth considering.
While some of their competitors like to release bonus categories well ahead of time, Chase only releases the categories a few weeks before the start of the quarter. Today we have learned which categories will earn 5% back on the Chase Freedom & Freedom Flex cards in the fourth quarter of 2021 on up to $1,500 in spend. Let’s take a look!
Chase Freedom October – December, 2021 Bonus Categories
Here are the just announced bonus categories for Chase Freedom Flex and the discontinued Chase Freedom card. Starting October 1 through December 31, cardmembers can earn 5% cash back on up to $1,500 in combined purchases on the following:
- PayPal: Cardmembers will automatically earn 5% cashback on eligible purchases made when checking out with PayPal at tens of millions of online businesses.
- Walmart: Cardmembers will automatically earn 5% cashback when shopping for gifts, groceries and more when shopping at Walmart or on Walmart.com. Purchases made using PayPal at Walmart will only earn a total of 5% cashback.
These are two great categories, especially PayPal. You will basically earn 5x on every purchase as long as you check out with PayPal and use your eligible Chase Freedom card. Walmart is also a popular store and you can earn 5x both online and in-store.
