The Chase Freedom card is among my favorites because it earns valuable Ultimate Rewards points while also giving me the ability to earn 5X in rotating bonus categories each quarter. Over the years we have amassed a few Freedom cards which makes me happy looking at the newly announced 3rd quarter bonus categories.
Announcement – Chase Freedom Q3 2020 Bonus Categories
While this isn’t yet reflected on their public Chase Freedom calendar page, Chase has updated the calendar for Freedom customers who login to reveal the Q3 bonus categories for 2020. And they are pretty good! Let’s take a look.
I should have probably said they are pretty good for people who like Amazon!
How I’ll Max Out the Q3 Freedom Bonus Categories
This one is pretty simple in my eyes. I spend a lot of money on Amazon for reselling and otherwise, so I’ll probably just lock in my 5X by purchasing Amazon gift cards directly from Amazon and loading them to my account for later. This could also be a great way to shift spend into the 4th quarter if you don’t have a lot of Amazon purchases now, but expect to spend a lot for the holidays. Of course if you shop Whole Foods often then this is a nice bonus, but tons of cards are also paying bonus points at grocery stores too.
Chase Freedom Q3 2020 Bonus Categories – Bottom Line
This has been one of the better years for bonus categories on the Chase Freedom cards. Every quarter has provided opportunity and the 3rd quarter is no different. Make sure to max out the 2nd quarter before the end of the month and then move on to Amazon in July!
