Chase Freedom Bonus Categories 4th Quarter 2012

What’s the deal???

It’s activation day once again for you Chase Freedom credit card holders!

From October 1 – December 31, 2012, you will earn 5x Chase Ultimate Rewards (UR) points for every dollar you spend at:

  • Hotels
  • Airlines
  • Best Buy
  • Kohl’s

Is this a good deal?

Absolutely! It’s one of the best quarterly promotions around. With a $1,500 cap in spending, you can earn a max of 7,500 UR points.

The 4th quarter promotion is always the best one of the year, especially with Christmas looming. I don’t think anyone will have any trouble meeting the maximum of $1,500 in spend this quarter.

How do I get in on it?

This one is pretty easy.

  1. Activate your Chase Freedom credit card here.
  2. Use your card in the proper categories!


As an added bonus, by starting your shopping through the Chase Ultimate Rewards Shopping Mall, you can earn even more bonus points on top of the 5x from this promotion.

10x UR points on top of the 5x from the 4th Quarter promo

10x UR points at Kohl’s from the online shopping mall
5x UR points from the Q4 promo
15x Ultimate Rewards points! 

In other words, if you spent all $1,500 online at Kohl’s in Q4, you would have earned 22,500 Ultimate Rewards points! 

To put that into perspective, that’s almost the amount of a domestic round trip award (25,000 miles)!

That would also earn you one night in the highest category Hyatt hotel (22,000 points)! Think Park Hyatt – Tokyo, Paris, Sydney, Milan, Maldives… you get the picture. These points are VALUABLE.


As usual, the quarterly promotions for the Chase Freedom cards are awesome.

In my opinion, the Chase Freedom is a card that everyone should have because of these bonuses and NO annual fee.

It earns valuable Ultimate Rewards points that can be transferred to some great programs:

  • United Airlines
  • British Airways
  • Korean Air
  • Hyatt
  • Priority Club
  • Amtrak
