The new Chase Freedom 2018 Q4 bonus categories have been announced: from October 1-December 31, 2018, Freedom cardholders can earn an extra 5x / 5% at Wholesale Clubs, Department Stores. and Chase Pay. That should make this a pretty easy quarter in terms of maxing out $1,500 in purchases to get this bonus.
- The Chase Freedom 2018 Q4 5% bonus categories will be:
- Wholesale Clubs
- Department Stores
- Chase Pay
- Activate here beginning September 15, 2018
- Earn an extra 5% / 5x Ultimate Rewards on up to $1,500 in combined purchases in the designated categories between October 1, 2018 and December 31, 2018
- Must activate to earn 5x beginning September 15, 2018
With holiday season coming up, it should be pretty easy for most people to max these out between grocery shopping at wholesale clubs and gift purchasing via department stores and Chase Pay. Keep in mind that there is also a Chase Pay promotion running through September 30th for Chase Sapphire and Freedom Unlimited cardholders, though that one is limited to a couple of merchants and a lower spending threshold. Overall, I’d say the Q4 categories look pretty good for most people.
