Based on Doctor of Credit’s post about this offer, it looks like this promotion launched at the end of last month. They might be rolling out the offer to additional cardholders though because Greg received an email about it yesterday.
It seems to be highly targeted because he could only activate it on one of his Freedom cards. I’ve also tried registering all my Chase cards and those of my wife but none of them seem to be eligible.
If you’re one of the lucky people who’s been targeted, 5% or 5x (depending on the card) can be a great offer, particularly for insurance payments that aren’t typically eligible for bonused spend.
