Some Thoughts

It seems like Chase is really continuing development of their relationships with specifics stores/brands. Lowe’s, Kohl’s, and Amazon are back once again. Zappos.com, another powerhouse in the ecommerce world, has been added to the Q4 holiday mix.

Overall, the 2014 bonus categories are basically the same. We won’t max out Q1. We have a strong chance at Q2 with the availability of gift cards in both categories. Q3 has a great opportunity to buy & sell depending on what kind of sales and promotions Kohl’s has at the time. Q4 is solid as usual.

I really only miss the drugstores category, which was great for buying Vanilla Reloads and getting some bonus points while doing it. Other than that, the categories are about the same.

As always, you can count on a post from me when it’s time to activate your Chase Freedom card for these bonuses.
