Chase Freedom 2015 Bonus Categories Announced

While we’re all busy trying to hit the $1,500 in spend for this quarter’s bonus categories, Chase has announced all the bonus categories for 2015.

Chase Freedom 2015 Bonus Categories

January – March

  • Grocery stores
  • Movie theaters
  • Starbucks

April – June

  • Restaurants
  • Bed Bath & Beyond
  • H&M
  • Overstock.com

July – September

  • Gas stations
  • “And more!”

October – December

  • Amazon.com
  • “And more!”

No surprises in any month. You’ll likely see Kohl’s in Q3 and Zappos & other department stores in Q4.

Activation for Q1 2015 will open December 15, 2014.

So there are not any groundbreaking opportunities for any serious manufactured spend or reselling, but I take this as good news. Chase hasn’t taken any bonus categories away next year.

These categories are always a nice way to rack up an extra 6,000 Ultimate Rewards points each quarter and with a $0 annual fee card like the Chase Freedom, I can’t complain. If you don’t have one (why not?!), the sign up bonus is 20,000 points after spending $500 in the first 3 months from account opening, which is double the normal offer.
