Chase Freedom Categories For Q1 + Q2 Confirmed
This was originally posted on December 5th, 2016. We’re reposting as you can now see the 5% categories when you log into your account.
Last week user snorkage posted on /r/churning that they were told the Q1 + Q2 Chase Freedom 5% rotating categories. We’ve now confirmed with Chase that these categories are correct and are as follows:
- Q1: Gas stations & commuter passes
- Q2: Grocery stores & drugstores
This also means there will be big overlap with the Discover it in Q1, with that card also offering 5% cash back (doubled for the first year) on Gas Stations, Ground transportation & Wholesale Clubs. Wholesale clubs will not earn 5% cashback continuing into 2017 on the Chase Freedom (that was a limited time promotion that will end).
I would have liked to see grocery stores and drugstores in two separate quarters, especially considering that it’s possible to get 5% cash back year round on gas purchases. What are your thoughts on the Chase Freedom categories for the start of 2017?
