If you have a Chase Freedom card, the time to activate the bonus for next quarter is now! The bonus categories for Q1 2012 are GAS and AMAZON.COM. I, for one, am thoroughly pleased since I’m a car commuter and love Amazon shopping, especially with my Prime 2-Day Shipping subscription. Remember to think outside the box, too. Next quarter, I’ll be eating lunch more often at Blimpie inside the Hess Express next to my work because the transaction will get posted as Hess – Gasoline.
Remember, the 5x bonus is only good up to $1,500 in spending for the quarter. So click here and enter your Last Name, Last 4 digits of the card, and Zip Code. You’ll then receive an email confirming your enrollment.
I’m sure at this point no one needs to read why Chase’s Ultimate Rewards programs is tops in my book. With transfer partners like United/Continental, British Airways, Amtrak, Hyatt, Priority Club, and soon Southwest, earning as many UR points as you can is imperative to a great frequent traveler strategy.
