Activate your Chase Freedom credit card for the 3rd quarter bonus categories!

As always, the Chase Freedom card has rotating bonuses every quarter that earn 5x Ultimate Rewards points (up to $1,500 in spend) versus the normal 1x.

The 3rd quarter bonus categories run from July 1 – Sept. 30, 2013 and are as follows:

  • Gas stations
  • Theme parks
  • Kohl’s®

Thoughts

Semi-bummed that Chase put Kohl’s in the 3rd quarter instead of the 4th. Not too much of a worry though; you can just buy Kohl’s gift cards in store and then use them come Holiday time.

Gas stations was always a great category for us, but not anymore since we both got new jobs where public transportation is easier.

Theme parks are downright useless for me.

Ways to Meet $1,500 Spend in the Quarter

It isn’t always easy to max out the bonus category spend each quarter but if you think ahead a little, you’ll be able to leverage the bonuses.

  • Gas stations: Purchase gift cards
  • Kohl’s®: Purchase gift cards

That’s usually the protocol for when you can’t meet spend in a quarterly bonus category. Buy a gift card that you will eventually use! Just don’t lose it 😉
