Chase Freedom Q3 5% Categories will be Gas, Walgreen’s, and Lyft
Chase has revealed the third quarter categories for the Chase Freedom 5% card which will run during July, August, and September. These categories aren’t yet showing on the public site, but were released in a press release. We’ll add an image tomorrow or Friday when it’s showing.
- Gas stations
Gas is a staple, and some gas stations sell gift cards too. Walgreen’s sells gift cards. Lyft can be useful as well. Just keep in mind that some Walgreen’s locations won’t allow using a credit card for variable-load Visa/MC/Amex gift cards, or they’ll limit you to just one $500 card.
Not as good, in my opinion, as this quarter’s categories of Paypal, grocery, and Chase Pay (a few weeks left to take advantage of these!) but still useful categories. Gas in Q3 is actually a repeat of Q1 when the categories were gas, mobile payments, and communications.
Discover Q3 category will be restaurants, so I guess that’s nice to see Chase and Discover with differing categories to spread the wealth. Remember, these have a $1,500 limit per card. We’ll do a more complete roundup post on June 15th when all the category cards are live for signup.
